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.

 Seized by Love is part of a massive universe created by Melissa Foster, Love in Bloom. The Ryders are just a small part of that universe. I keep calling it that because that is what it feels like everything is connected and everything fits together perfectly, it doesn't matter if you have read all of them or not. Never having read any of the books before I found this one humourous and romantically sweet and it was okay as a stand alone from the larger part of the universe.

I loved Lizzie, I swear with as much guilt she was carrying around you think she was a devout catholic. Blue, ohhhh, he was a sweetie and so patient. So Lizzie is putting her sister through college by hosting a web series called The Naked Baker where she wears nothing but an apron and heels and talks very suggestively. She started in college and managed to make enough money to pay off  her student loans and buy her flower shop. But wherein lies the problem is that no one knows it's her. She has lied to everybody about it. Blue has been trying to get Lizzie into more than just a friend relationship. When Lizzie finally gives she starts to feel the pressure even more. Finally when the truth comes out she may have just lost everyone she cares about.

Overall, I had some problems with the book but it was personal preference. This book really was a joy to read and I would definitely be willing to read more from Melissa Foster
