Seized by Love Summary

SEIZED BY LOVE is a USA TODAY BESTSELLER

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

In SEIZED BY LOVE...
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.

Not bad but so much that wasn’t needed3 star

It 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.35

Love!5 star

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!55

The Naked Baker5 star

Lizzie 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.55

Good, but...3 star

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.35
