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.
My Thoughts on Seized by Love
This time it's Blue Ryder's turn to find love.
I've been following Blue for a couple books now and I was happy to get his story.
I really liked his leading lady Lizzie. I really liked the way she found a way to take care of not only herself but her sister when it was needed for school. The whole time I found myself thinking "That really isn't that bad" or "She could definitely be doing worse things". I think I just kind of felt she was judged harshly by several people despite their reasons. It kind of dimmed my opinions for those harsh judging people. And while I appreciate that everything worked out in the end, it definitely never got back to being totally ok for me.
Once again BJ Harrison did a good job. I never have anything bad to say about him because he consistently does well.
Seized By Love is another Home Run for Melissa Foster. Blue and Lizzie aka The Naked Baker. What better way to fall in love with someone than to start out as friends and really get to know each other. This is another great addition to the Love in Bloom series.
Blue has been asking Lizzie out for a year and she has been shooting him down for a year. Blue knows what he wants and is not about to give up on it. He feels that eventually he will wear Lizzie down and get her to go out with him. Blue can do most anything DIY and has been helping Lizzie remodel her kitchen along with remodeling his cabin.
Lizzie owns a P-Town Petals by day and does a web show called The Naked Baker at night. Lizzie created the web show in college to earn extra money to pay for college and to get money to start her flower shop. Lizzie thought she was done with The Naked Baker until her father falls ill and her parents no longer have money to put her sister Maddie through college. She brings The Naked Baker back so she can have money to put Maddie through school. She does not want Maddie starting her life in debt.
This book has laughter, sadness, and lots of hot sex. You get in depth with the characters and can't help but to root for them. Being friends first and getting through the getting to know you awkward phase of relationships makes the dating part a little easier. The story grabs you from the first chapter and keeps you excited for what comes next. B.J. Harrison narrates and he does a fantastic job. He does a great job of making you feel like you are right there in the thick of things with everyone. You get all the emotion and highs and lows. Harrison just brings everything to life.
New narrator please!
different from the usual tropes and storylines out there right now. Cute story and characters.
I was not a fan of the narrator however. That was a huge turnoff for me and made me drag the listen out waaaay longer than I usually listen.
It wasn’t a deterrent as far as giving her other audios a try but this one maybe should have been just a read instead of a listen.
