A new Melissa Foster book is like Christmas. As part of my tradition for reviewing her books, I pick a word, or a phrase in this case, that pops into my head as I read the book. The first book in Melissa's newest spin-off series, Seized by Love reintroduces readers to the Ryders. After meeting and getting to know Blue and Lizzie a little bit better, "single-minded determination" would describe them to a tee. When both of them sets their sights on a goal, that's it. They are focused entirely on that goal until it is well within their grasp. The moment Blue met Lizzie at mutual friend's wedding, he knew she was the one. And even though it took a year for him to finally win her over, Blue would tell anyone that it was a year well spent. True, he would have rather spent those 365 days with Lizzie in his arms, but if that was what it took to have her heart forever, then he would have done it again in a heartbeat. Lizzie has had to pay her own way for as long as she can remember. In order to pay for her college tuition, Lizzie brought the Naked Baker to life. Now that her sister is in school, Lizzie is determined to pay her way, even if it means hiding her secret identity for four more years and risk losing Blue in the process. With her hard work and determination, Lizzie was able to make her webcast a huge success and, in turn, is able to have her own flourishing flower business. Once together, their focus was turned on making their budding relationship work and it was such a pleasure watching them fall for each other.

I adore Melissa Foster. Her books are a little slice of romance heaven and I honestly can't get enough of them. If there were more hours in the day, I would probably spend more of them re-reading her previous works. Seized by Love was another Melissa masterpiece. I always love when she starts a new spin-off series because that means I get to fall in love with a whole new set of characters.

Seized by Love is a hot romance and is part of a new spin off series from Melissa Fosters Love in Bloom books. Here we meet Blue from the Ryder family and the lady who stole his heart Lizzie Barber.

The book is set in Cape Cod, USA. Blue is a craftsman who works locally and is refurbishing Lizzie's kitchen. He's been asking her out on a date for a year but she keeps turning him down. Blue is from a large family with brothers and a sister, they have strong family values and are a great loving family.

Lizzie runs her own flower shop and takes care of the expenses so that her sister can go to college. Lizzie had to support herself through college when her Dad became sick and she found a lucrative side job which helped her out. During the day Lizzie delivers cakes to the homeless and puts flowers on unattended graves. She's a very warm hearted and caring person.

Twice a week Lizzie films a solo webcast show which she's made profitable. The Naked Baker is Lizzie's secret.

Tired of fighting her attraction to Blue, Lizzie agrees to go out with him. The chemistry is perfect and the romance is hot. Blue wears his heart on his sleeve and is very open with Lizzie about his feelings. But Lizzie struggles with her secret and not sharing it with Blue makes her feel guilty.

This book is all about love and trust and people's personal hang-ups with preconceived ideas. For readers of Melissa's romance books you know what to expect from the romantic formulas and family loyalties which dominate the themes. However this book may stretch personal preferences a little when it comes to accepting some of the sexual scenes.

This review is based on a free copy of the book given to me by the author via Brook Cottage Books

Lizzie Barber is a florist by day but moonlights as the Naked Baker in the evenings. She dons a blonde wig, black glasses and a strategically placed apron...then does some saucy baking whilst filming it. Then she edits, then posts the videos onto the internet.
She has been doing this since her family hit hard times whilst she was in college. She originally started it to pay her own way through college, but is now continuing it to pay for her younger sisters education.
Blue Ryder is a hunky, sexy carpenter who does lots of DIY jobs for her. He is always asking her for a date but she refuses, not wanting him (or anyone)to find out about her nocturnal activities.
But she surprises him by giving in and agreeing to one date...but will she be able to stop at just one date? What will happen when Blue, and her friends, find out about her secret life?...
Lizzie is a kind hearted soul who donates any flowers not sold, plus the efforts of her baking, and Blue sees this in her and falls for her even more.
This is a fabulous read and we get to catch up with the Seaside gang, re-visit the Cape, plus it's the first of the Ryder books...and I can't wait to read all about Duke Ryder!!
This book will make you want to break out the baking tins and don your apron :)Bring on the cupcakes!!!

I am a huge fan of Melissa Foster and of course, this series did not disappoint as well. I love the way that Melissa always makes her books feel so life like. It is like she literally took the characters out of today's world and just wrote a story about them. I can always connect with the characters and the books flow so easily! I am so happy that there is going to be a Ryder's series!!

Lizzy is a young lady that owns a flower shop and paid for the start-up with the money that she makes from her Webcast, Naked Baker. Lizzy has kept the Naked Baker a secret because she is not proud of what she does and does not want people judging her for that. Lizzy also helps pay for her sister's college, books, and any other things she might need with the money she makes form the Naked Baker. As soon as Lizzy gets her sister through college and on her own, she has promised herself that she will just have the flower shop and quit the Naked Baker before anyone can figure out that it is her.

Blue Ryder has been in love with Lizzy since he meet her a year ago, but Lizzy has avoided all of his requests to go on a date for some reason. Blue is a good guy that keeps to himself pretty much. When Lizzy needs help with her oven heating element, she calls Blue. Of course, he is always there to help her and of course he is going to ask her one more time about going out with him. When Lizzy finally gives into Blue, he knows that all he has to do is let Lizzy feel the same feelings that he does for her and she will be hooked on them as well.

Blue and Lizzy go out and things heat up the instant they are together and things just feel right for both of them.
