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.


Review: I loved this book. From start to finish I fell in love with Lizzie and Blue. I love everything this book and feel like I really got to know both characters because the author did such a good job at making the main characters come to life. They had so many dimensions to their character and I would totally be friends with both of them if they existed outside of their novel.

This is my first ever Melissa Foster book and I’m hooked. I now want to go out and buy all her books from the beginning. She has such an amazing way of writing and describing the characters and setting that you want to jump in and become a part of their circle.

Blue Ryder is the hottest name ever. It so works. He is such a caring man. He needs to write his own book on how to get the girl and keep her. I loved the transformation that he went throughout the book. It only made him more endearing and lovable.

Lizzie was a riot. A strong woman with equally strong convictions. She is wicked smart and cares more about others than herself. She too went through a transformation that made her a better person.

I’m so excited to read Duke’s story in Claimed by Love. Duke seems like the kind of alpha male I like to read about. I love that I have so many more books to read by this author. New favorite author has been found!!
