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
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.
THE RYDERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series by New York Times
& USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. This 5-book hot contemporary romance series features alpha male heroes and sexy,empowered women. They’re flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women’s fiction.
Seized by Love is the first book in the Ryder’s series by Melissa Foster and after reading this one, I can’t wait for the rest. SEIZED BY LOVE by Melissa FosterSeized by Love is a spin-off the Love In Bloom series. In this book we get to meet The Ryder Family. Let’s just say this family is interesting and you will fall hard. Seized by Love is told by both Lizzie and Blue’s POV’s. Getting to know these characters was just a pleasure.
Blue Ryder (just a second I need to wipe the drool from my mouth) was everything that I thought his character would be. He is swoon worthy, confident, caring, loyal, and has the biggest heart. He is dedicated to protecting and keeping his family and those he loves safe. Once he lays his eyes on Lizzie Barber, he just has to have her. Blue has been going after Lizzie hard for the past year, and the answer was always the same no, until she finally caves.
Lizzie Barber’s character is the best. She is feisty, strong willed, selfless, smart and very business savvy. Lizzie has managed to make her own way in life, paying for college, and is owner of her own business (actually two). Now she is doing the same for her little sister. Lizzie is very much attracted to Blue, and for the past year she’s denied him, but she can no longer do that.
The relationship between Blue and Lizzie was a very good one, there was not only sexual chemistry but also an intense bond and connection. As they both get to know each other they both begin get to really know one another. They understand the complexities of who the other person is. I loved reading how their relationship blossomed and how they both enjoyed exploring their love. Blue and Lizzie were a perfect match. Their relationship felt natural and their qualities matched their relationship. They were both loyal to those they love. Lizzie is hiding a piece of herself from Blue, one that she is not sure he can deal with. When Blue learns ALL of Lizzie’s truths will he be able to deal with it or will this be the end of Lizzie and Blue?
I really enjoyed how the author gave readers a story that was genuine. I was able picture the characters in my head and related to both their stories. I love a book that has angst, drama and some gut wrenching scenes, but I also enjoy a book that is light and deals with topics and issues that are real. I can’t wait to read more from this author.
