Seized by Love at Seaside
(Sweet with Heat: The Ryders #1)
by Addison Cole
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 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, 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.
Elizabeth “Lizzie” Barber isn’t your typical girl next door who runs a flower shop at Seaside Cape. Born to conservative parents who always instilled religious beliefs to their daughters, Lizzie does everything to hide the skeletons in her closet or at her house’s basement. There the magic happens. Lizzie the florist by day turns into a naked baker webcaster at night. And boy does she know how to seduce and bake in front of the camera.
Blue Ryder is every woman’s handyman fantasy. He’s patient and kind and so warm towards Lizzie even though she always turns down his date proposals. Lizzie can’t find fault in Blue’s personality, but she’s afraid to find out how he would feel once he learns the truth about her moonlighting job.
Once again, I fell hard and fast for the Ryder brothers in Addison Cole’s Sweet with Heart series. (I loved the Seaside bestfriends stories featuring Leanna, Bella, Amy, Jenna and Jessica ) and when I learned about a Ryder brother having his story, I couldn’t resist reading it. Addison Cole always makes me smile with her sweet and sexy Seaside stories, and this latest one is another winner in my book. Because, how can you not love Blue!? This guy is one in a million and I want you to meet him so you’ll understand what I am talking about.
