New Addition to the Love in Bloom Series, Seized by Love, Book #1 The Ryders

YOU FELL IN love with Blue Ryder and Lizzie Barber in Seaside Summers, now follow their journey to find true love in SEIZED BY LOVE, the first book in the Ryder series.

Lizzie Barber runs a successful flower shop by day and secretly hosts the Naked Baker webcast at night to help pay for her younger sister’s education. To keep friends and family from finding out about her sexy secret, she’s put her social life on hold until her sister’s education is paid off and she can stop filming the webcast.

Blue Ryder fell hard for Lizzie Barber when he met her a year ago, and he hasn’t been able to get her off his mind since. Everything about the feisty little brunette, from her tight bod to her seductive smile, cuts straight to his heart. Though Lizzie has turned down every invitation he’s extended—Blue is not about to give up trying.

Renovating Lizzie’s kitchen brings Blue further into Lizzie’s life, and the oven is not the only thing heating up. One night and one powerful kiss changes everything. But when Lizzie’s secret is revealed and the safe bubble she’s hidden in shatters, true love may not be enough to put the pieces back together.

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.


Seized by Love is book one in the new spin off featuring the Ryder’s this time.

We first met Blue Ryder in the Seaside series and I fell in love with his character in Seaside Nights and I really had him pegged to be with Sky – but she found her soulmate in Sawyer, so I was hoping for a book dedicated to him. When he meets Lizzie at a friend’s wedding he knows she is THE ONE and makes it his missions to make her his. And  after reading this book, she is just absolutely perfect for him 

Lizzie manages to rebuff his advances for a year before deciding what the heck and gives in and agrees to go a date with hi, Lizzie has a secret though. In order to make ends meet and help pay her sisters tuition she had to resort to extreme measures to make money.

Thus the Naked Baker was born – a weekly webcast she does where she, well she bakes naked!

I absolutely loved this idea, Lizzie is such a straight laced kinda girl that the idea of her doing something like this is off the wall for her – but it also fit with her character as well and the storyline.

This is start of another brilliant series and as usual with anything I have read of Melissa Fosters, the strong friendship and family ties are ever present. I just want to pack up my things and move to Cape Cod and have all of her characters are my friends. I love how she is able to draw you into her characters lifes and make you feel apart of it all. This book has characters old and new and I for one cant wait for the next book in the Ryder’s series!

5 perfect stars!
