Love In Bloom #29: The Ryders #1
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing October 28, 2015
World Literary Press

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.

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.

My Thoughts: 
All right, I have been working my way through Seized By Love and I have must say that it's an enjoyable read. Lizzie and Blue are fantastic together. They seem to fall inline with one another. However, Lizzie has this big secret that could ruin the union between her and Blue. Eek! Dear lord it definitely could ruin the relationship, because of Blue's past.

Lizzie, is definitely a sweet girl who loves her family to no end, and would do anything for them. Even have a secret webcast called the Naked Baker, this is helping her little sister pay for schooling. Kind like the female med student paying for schooling by being a stripper, but this is way more creative. Of course Lizzy doesn't love doing this, but it gets the job done. Once she starts dating Blue, she starts to view this something extremely dirty. It's always hard to find the right way to say, "Hey I have this webcast that I'm practically naked, but it's all for a good cause." Yeah, not the easiest thing to tell a guy. We have Blue, who's practically the perfect guy. He's trust worthy and handsome. Seriously, he's like the perfect gentleman, but a freak in the bed. Sorry, it kind of reminded me of Usher song.

I adore Lizzie and her ability to sacrifice her life for her sister. It takes true love for one family to sacrifice so much. Some might not see it that way, but she could have done a lot worst than what she did. Lizzie is an amazing person, because she gives more of herself than anyone. Yes, Blue and Lizzie definitely go through a rough patch. I don't blame Blue for his outrage when he found out. Kudos to Melissa for going the way she went with the revealing of Lizzie's secret life. She could have gone a couple of different ways on this, and I wonder which way she was going to go with it. Overall, Seized By Love is a story that shows that it's not always easy to accept things person does, but the pay off is worth it in the long run.
