Seized by Love by Melissa Foster Book Summary


The Ryders are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom 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.

He's constantly asking her out but she refuses. When she finally decides to go out with him, there friendship turns into something more until he learns of her secret. Will they weather this unexpected turn in their relationship or will Blue walk away. I enjoyed Blue and Lizzie's love story. Narrator was just ok..Score: 5/5

A Great Beach Read!!!Who couldn't fall in love with Blue and Lizzie💕📖. If you are looking for a great book for the beach. Melissa Foster's books are great beach summer reading. The Ryder men are so hot that it makes you want to take a cold shower.Score: 5/5

The Naked BakerLizzie did what she had to do when her Dad got sick. She realized that she and her sister Maddie needed college degrees. When she met Blue Ryder she fell hard. She knew that her webcast of The Naked Baker was what earned her the money to pay for her sister’s college education. That was how she paid for hers. Although she was ashamed of having to do this she knew and truth be told she secretly did enjoy doing it. At least with her love crush Blue. The conflicting emotions in this book is definitely a roller coaster ride as well as the steamy hot sex scenes. Hang on to your hats ladies and enjoy the ride..Score: 5/5

Great ReadSeized by Love by Melissa Foster was a great read. Lizzie is a woman who is very ambitious.She runs a successful flower shop and also runs a webcast that no one in her life knows about. She has put her life on hold to help in paying for her sisters college. Blue has fallen hard for Lizzie even though she keeps turning him down. I loved reading Lizzie and Blue's story. I can't wait to read more by Melissa Foster..Score: 5/5

Good, but...This is a fairly enchanting story about a small town florist and her friend, a handy man, complicated by the woman’s secret online business which funds her and her sister’s educations. Both of the main characters are believable and the spark is easy to see. (Trigger warning: sex-shaming women) But. It was really upsetting to read the man’s slut-shaming towards the woman. (Not a spoiler: her online identity is basically the equivalent of an exotic dancer on a baking instructional show who speaks in sensual innuendos. Her family is very religious and she keeps this business a secret from them as well.) It’s understandable why a secret like that causes conflict. I don’t mind that it’s the central conflict. But his paternalistic, sex-shaming, “wow my adult girlfriend isn’t a sheltered virgin she’s ruined for me” reaction made me instantly hate him, and despite a whole lot of semi-apologies and behind her back maneuvering... I couldn’t forgive him enough to enjoy the HEA..Score: 3/5

Love!Another Melissa Foster book that does not disappoint! Loved the sexy banter between the two characters and how Foster wrote their steamy scenes differently than the first three books. Cannot wait for another!.Score: 5/5

Love bloomsSeized by Love is the first book in the Love in Bloom/Ryders Series. This book is about Blue Ryder and Lizzie Barber's love story. Lizzie is flower shop owner during the day and the "Naked Baker" by Night. Her nighttime job however it mainly to put her sister though school and use the extra money to pay off her flower shop. Lizzie and Blue have known each other for years and Blue finally talks Lizzie into allowing her to date him but Lizzie fears her secret night job will be the end of their relationship. This was my first book of Melissa's and I found it to be well thought out and her characters very well written. There was a lot of character development and I felt like I really connected to them throughout the storyline. Melissa puts a lot of emotions into her characters and you can feel them in her writing style. There is also some great sex scenes which is always nice in a romance novel. I like that I also got to know other characters and want to read their books as well. I listened to this in audiobook form and the narration was well done. The tone, speed and inflections made the book very easy to listen to. I would listen to the narrator again..Score: 4/5

Melissa has done it again!Melissa Foster has once again provided a great read that gets your heart totally involved with these characters. As Blue and Lizzie deal with their challenges I both laughs and cried for them. You also get to catch up with a few of the others from the series. Waiting for the next book. Loved it..Score: 5/5

Not bad but so much that wasn’t neededIt wasn’t a bad book, decently written but in all honestly there’s just a lot of extras in my opinion that we’re not needed. So much repeating until you get to the climax too, I skipped a few pages here and there because of it. I can usually read a 900-1000 page book in a few days it took me 2 1/2 weeks to finish this and it wasn’t because I didn’t have time it just didn’t keep my attention as much once she got the guy..Score: 3/5

Oh my goshI freaken love Melissa foster. If I had a quarter of the writing talent she shows in this book I would be very lucky. The story is fun way to read and takes you through a roller coaster of emotions and has the best balance of happy sad and sweet!!!.Score: 5/5

Great New SeriesI really enjoyed the story of Blue and Lizzie, the first book in the Ryder series. Lizzie is a florist with her own business by day and the Naked Baker, a thriving webcast that she produces and hosts, at night to pay to put her sister through school. Blue is an all-around great guy who is fixing Lizzie's kitchen for her and falling for her at the same time. He doesn't know that Lizzie is the Naked Baker (no one does!) and keeps asking her out for more than a year. She finally gives in and it's smoldering!!! These two will melt your socks. Blue is everything any girl could want and Lizzie is no exception. Blue has been hurt in the past and will certainly see this as a deception so how does she let him know what she does to keep her sister in school debt-free? Find out when you join Blue, Lizzie and their friends and family in this great new series by Melissa Foster..Score: 5/5

Hot and Sweet RomanceSeized by love is a sweet and hot romance. Lizzie is a strong, hardworking heroine. She is doing her best to take care of herself and her family. She owns her own flower shop, but also runs a podcast to earn money to put herself and her sister through college. I have to say that I adore the Ryder family already and can’t wait to read more stories with this family in them. Blue Ryder has been trying to get Lizzie to date him, but she keeps him at arms length until the temptation of him gets too much for her. When Lizzie reveals her secret to Blue his immediate reaction kind of made me mad, but he eventually came to his senses and tried to help Lizzie and be there for her instead of being judgmental. “It was true what people said about going through difficult times together and how struggles could bring people closer together.” I listened to this story on audiobook and really liked the narration. The narrator brought the book to life for me in a way that made listening even more enjoyable than if I had read it myself. -4 Stars-.Score: 4/5

Another beautiful love storyI loved listening to this story read by B J Harrison. He has narrated many of Melissa’s books and I find his voice very warm, smooth and easy to listen too. I’ve met Blue a few times now in other books and it was grterat to finally read his story. When Blue and Lizzie met for the first time, Blue fell for her and he’s not been able to stop thinging about her - only to have Lizzie refuse every offer of a date, and he is determined to change her mind. Lizzie runs the florist by day, and broadcasts a webseries b y night. One that she is keeping hidden from family and friends to help support her younger sister and pay her college fees. Unfortunately, things don’t always go to plan, and secrets can be found out…..Score: 5/5

Wow, another Ryder love storyGreat book, love at its best. Blue has wanted to date Lizzie since he first set eyes on her but she keeps turning him down. When he finally gets her to agree it’s everything he dreamed it would be. But Lizzie has a secret that she can’t share with anyone, even Blue or her best friend Sky. But she has to tell him before their relationship goes any farther. Will he accept her for who she is or will it be the end before it’s even begun? Received a compliment copy of this book, this is an honest review..Score: 5/5
