    First let’s talk about how sweet Blue is and how great of a guy he is, for the most part anyway...What girl wouldn’t melt at this… “It’s you, Lizzie. All of you. The way you were so focused and organized at the wedding. And when I come into the shop, you’re always trying to tend to everyone so no one is left out. You watch over Maddy with a fierceness that belies your sweet personality. And the way you move like you have no idea you’re the cutest girl on the planet—” Seriously Lizzie taking flower First let’s talk about how sweet Blue is and how great of a guy he is, for the most part anyway...What girl wouldn’t melt at this… “It’s you, Lizzie.

She is such a good person. I think that was a good touch to the book to show readers a little bit more about Lizzie and what she is like. It did really bug me that she wouldn’t just tell Blue about Naked Baker, like for real who cares. She is doing it for a great cause and if he can’t deal with that then he’s not the one for her. Why doesn’t she get that? When she finally told Blue about her “side” business I was disappointed with how he reacted. Like he wouldn’t even listen to what she wanted to tell him about WHY she was doing it...She had a damn good reason for doing it. Overall I love how this book ended. I couldn’t have picked a better ending :)

    I liked the book, but I had a problem with the way the men in Lizzie's life were handling the fact that she was cooking naked (even though her goodies were covered). It's not like she did it because of selfish reasons. She wanted to take a load of her parents' shoulders and offer her sister the chance to go to college. She was a selfless person and I loved her for that. Blue had some great moments where he was melting me with his words, but I just wanted to hit him when he was opening his mouth I liked the book, but I had a problem with the way the men in Lizzie's life were handling the fact that she was cooking naked (even though her goodies were covered).

I was very happy to see him coming to terms with what she did. After that, his actions continued to melt me and I was loving him. It was a good book, but it tired me a little. Still, I would recommend it because Blue is swoon-worthy.

    I've been anticipating Blue's story and I wasn't disappointed. I loved Blue. He's dreamy book boyfriend material. Though he did have his stumbling moments. Lizzie is so strong and so caring. She's going on my top heroine list. I felt for her because she feels like no one can accept her secret and it's eating away at her. I loved the message of the book about accepting the people we love for who they are. Also to look below the surface because the truth is right there waiting to be seen.

I love the tone and pitch she puts in to each new audio that I listen to. She gives clean clear diction to each character and allows for their own distinction to shine through. I find comfort in reading the Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summer series. I feel comfortable and relaxed. I get to dig right in and enjoy a beautiful story filled with life and all that comes with it. This time around its Lizzie Barber. She has found a unique way to help supplement income to pay for her sister’s education. She gives up having a social life to do what she thinks would be best for her sister. Blue Ryder had found a woman that he wanted to spend time with. It just took over a year to get close enough for things to progress to that stage. She had turned him down repeated, but all is not lost. Blue finds a way to get in and then finds that things are a bit more complicated than he felt comfortable with. The read has drama, angst, romance, chemistry, and life happening all awhile Lizzie has to find a way to make her life more than it had become. She has a man in her life the loves her. She has a sister she loves and would do anything for. That includes possibly destroying the one thing worth holding on to in her life. Much tamer than the original version. Safe for all readers, especially those that are not quite as accepting of the steamier side of relationships. Here we get another reason to keep reading more in this series.

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.

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.

But will Blue stay by Lizzie after finding out or run for the hills. I loved seeing Blue in the last series of books and hoped to get to find out if he got together with anyone, didn’t realise he was the hot and steamy type WOW. Looking forward to reading the next in the series by Addison Cole.

From the heated exchanges to the stubborn pride, sparks are forever flying. Blue and Lizzie are as temperamental as they are adorable. Through it all, love is the force that drives all the drama.

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine. I have read several of these books by Addison Cole (Melissa Foster) at this point, and each one I read seems to be better than the last one.

I have read several of these books by Addison Cole (Melissa Foster) at this point, and each one I read seems to be better than the last one. Until these "sweet with heat" books emerged, I never had the opportunity to read anything by Melissa Foster because I typically eschew books that contain extended bedroom scenes. Every time I was invited to review one of her books, it was extremely difficult to not sign up in spite of my personal preferences. But since Melissa has given her readers this viable option, now I can read her delightfully romantic (and sensual stories). One point of caution: While this book has no bedroom scenes, sex is implied and discussed in general terms. There is no bad language, however. And I found that Melissa writes her romances so incredibly well that I didn't mind the suggestive scenes. In fact, truth be told, I was intrigued and enchanted by the sensual romance included in this book. But if any of this offends you, I strongly recommend that you skip this book. For the record, this is my favorite Addison Cole book to date! While the nature of Lizzie's podcast is potentially embarrassing (and even conceivably morally disturbing), I understood Lizzie's motivation, and I could not truly judge her. After all, though suggestive, her podcast is not illegal, and her business acumen is mind-boggling. This book was my introduction to Blue, and I simply adore this character! He was so authentic and down-to-earth, and those are the kinds of "heroes" I prefer. He has flaws, but his heart is always in the right place. And I would venture to say that his response to Lizzie's secret is exactly what would be expected, but the way he works through his emotions and prejudices is precisely what I would want from the male protagonist. Furthermore, the way in which he supports Lizzie is unbelievable! One of the things I sincerely appreciated in this book is that Melissa ensured that the characters actually TALKED! One of my main complaints with romance novels (and I have even pointed out this blemish in other books in her "Sweet with Heat" series) is that the couple attempts to solve all of their problems by going to bed. Now, while this does happen to a degree in these novels, and it's clear that Lizzie and Blue can't keep their hands off each other, they make a point to discuss the important things. I cannot tell you how much I relished that, and I hope to see more discussion happening in future romance stories! One other thing I admired is the fact that the plot is not tied up in a tidy little bow. All too often, romances are packed with sugar-sweet characters and storylines that always work out in spite of any potential issues, no matter how seemingly insurmountable. While I will not spoil the story, I applaud Melissa for not permitting the characters to have everything go their way. While I believe the characters will ultimately experience their "happily ever after," it's nice to see a little hiccup that is not resolved the way Lizzie and Blue want it to. Finally, I hope that a studio options this book for a movie very soon. I realize that is the "entertainment journalist" in me talking, but I believe this idea is fresh, contemporary, and the ideal story for a romantic comedy on film. I think with a few tweaks, any studio could adapt this story, and of all of Addison's books I have read thus far, this is the one that I believe has the most potential in that department.

It's like coming home to visit old friends. Lizzie's alter ego, The Naked Baker, is person I would have liked to met. She is so different, yet in some basic ways so like Lizzie.

I am totally amazed no one made the connection - despite the blonde wig and glasses - between the two. Blue has always been a favorite of mine. I really thought he and Sky might have a more than friendship chance. I am not, though, disappointed in any way that Blue got together with Lizzie. Of course, they have some bumps to overcome but that is what makes this book so life-like. There is nothing that bothers me more than a romance that is smooth because, honestly, have we ever had one in real life? I think not. Pick up Addison Cole's new release, Seized by Love at Seaside,  and see what happens with Lizzie, Blue and others you may have read about previously. If this is your first Sweet with Heat book, do not worry. You can read it as a standalone but I doubt it will be the last Sweet with Heat you read. I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

This story is full of passion, heartbreak and plenty of romance. It is so easy to feel a connection to and like all of the characters. When I finished reading the book, I feel that the characters are friends, the next-door neighbor, and even family. This story shows you the ends that someone will go to for love. Even though Lizzie is hiding a secret from everyone she knows, she is doing it for a honorable reason. It is heartbreaking to see how the people she loves turns away from her when they find out the secret. But the toll that it takes on Lizzie becomes too much so she makes a choice and is the better for it despite the heart ache that it causes. Blue has to learn to accept what he can’t change or like and decide if he will let it stand in his path for love or find a way to live with it. Addison Cole does a wonderful job of weaving romance with humor and passion while adding in heartache that ends with the happy-ending that we come to expect. I know when I see her name on a book that it will be an entertaining and enjoyable book that I won’t be able to put down. Addison Cole definitely has a gift for writing spectacular stories! I have not been disappointed with a book yet! Definitely, an author that you will want to keep on the top of your go-to list. If you enjoy reading a sweet romance with a touch of humor, then you will thoroughly enjoy this book and the series. A truly captivating, emotional and heartwarming read.

Blue has spent a year waiting for Lizzie to accept a date with him. She wants to say yes but she is troubled.

Finally Lizzie agrees to date Blue and they quickly fall in love. But now Lizzie’s guilt eats away at her and she tells him the truth. Blue finds it difficult to process and the main focus of the book is the negotiation and acceptance which ensues. Supported by Blue, Lizzie decides to tell her family the truth as well. I loved the 2 person narrative which Addison has used so successfully in this series. It really helps you to see the characters’ perspectives and understand the soul-searching involved in the dilemmas which underpin each book. Overall score 5/5!

    Seized by Love at Seaside is a very sweet and enjoyable read. The characters are easy to fall in love with making this book a great addition to the Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers series. Lizzie isn't all that I expected her to be from reading the other Seaside stories. I had her pictured in my head as very sweet and almost innocent character. Lizzie is much more than I thought she would be. She's sweet and caring towards her friends, yet Lizzie has a naughty side to her I did not expect.

Blue seems like the fun, flirty, and perfect friend. He's very loyal, patient, and loving. I wish I had my own Blue. This book caught my interest from the start. It's a story that can easily be read in one sitting. The connection and the chemistry between the characters are obvious from the start and grow throughout the story. I received this book as an Advanced Reader's copy. I volunteered to leave my review. All opinions are my own.

    Lizzie and Blue's story is one of my favorites! Lizzie is one of the most caring and loving characters I've read. While she was in college her family fell on hard times, and Lizzie donned a wig, glasses, and an apron (a very carefully placed one) to become the Naked Baker. She put herself through college and would've stopped the secret life if her younger sister didn't need support in order to finish college. Lizzie is ashamed of her night job, and she refuses relationships because she feels like Lizzie and Blue's story is one of my favorites!

Lizzie is ashamed of her night job, and she refuses relationships because she feels like no one will understand. Blue is a handsome and handy man who is doing lots of home repairs for Lizzie, and he has asked her out more times than he can count. They have tons of chemistry, but Lizzie is leery of sharing her secrets, and Blue has been hurt in the past and has trust issues. Can they make a relationship work? Or will their secrets and trust issues destroy their future? I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

    Lizzie is a flower shop owner, but since college, he learned how to make some extra cash to help her family, and her double life was born. Lizzie is your friendly Naked Baker, but she makes sure you'll never know. Anyone else in the mood for cupcakes? Who would have thought that baked goods could get any sweeter?

It's a road of ups and downs, and a great read and break from any everyday monotony that you may be experiencing. *An advance copy of this book was provided to me for review purposes only, at my request, all opinions expressed are my own*

    Another great steamy sweet story by Ms. Cole. I really love this sweet with heat series, and fall in love with the characters more with each new book. I really want a Blue of my own, he says and does a few stupid things, but don't most men? Blue works through his issues with Lizzie's 'other' job, and proves that he is the right man for her.

She will do anything he has to do to make sure those around her are cared for, including hiding very important parts of her life from those she loves. It made me really sad for Lizzie that she was so ashamed of her show. She made a decision, that many including her family wouldn't agree with, but she put herself through college, and is doing the same for her sister. I think she should be proud of the strong women she is, and hard decisions she made. Seized by Love at Seaside only made me want more of this sweet with heat series, I can't wait to see what's next.

    For the most part I really enjoyed this book. I found Blue and Lizzie to be very appealing characters. The chemistry between them is believable, their attraction spoke volumes and felt so real.  The storyline is fun. The only thing that took away from the story for me was their constant need for saying how much they love one another and repetitive need for reassurances. The same things were said over and over and when it happened, it was distracting.  I lost momentum and I wasn't in the story as For the most part I really enjoyed this book.

The same things were said over and over and when it happened, it was distracting.  I lost momentum and I wasn't in the story as much as I was before and then I would have to get back on track again. I stuck it out every time and it was worth it, because it really is a great story.

    I really liked this book. It was provocative, yet tasteful. A sexy baker with a sexy beau makes this a must read!

    Lizzie and Blue are so fun to read! Addison Cole is Melissa Foster's sweet alter ego (pen name) and this one is a sweet story indeed!

Nobody knows that it has been years that Lizzie has been hosting this webcast to help her sister go through college and she is good in it. Blue Ryder is in love with this woman for a year!

But she seems to keep him in the friend zone and sure is keeping some secret from him. This story is about acceptance and show your true colors to the ones you love. It is so difficult some times! Sure Lizzie is the ultimate good girl, but even good girls have secrets and Blue is the good guy who must decide if he is willing to accept his girlfriend as she is. Addison Cole has an unique writing style and manages to put in words feelings that we usually have difficult to show. You will love Lizze and Blue!

    Lizzie Barber is Florist by day and the 'Naked Baker' by night. I immediately liked Lizzie's character for she is strong and charismatic and found a resolution to the money troubles she was having instead of letting it break her. She is sexy, funny but also uncertain as to how others will view her secret, a secret that deep down she is ashamed of. So when her oven breaks threatening her funds that she now uses to support her Sister, Lizzie is forced to call upon the help of her friend Blue.

I love the chemistry between the characters, and Blue is just a genuine sweetheart from the start. He is protective of Lizzie and struggles with the notion of what she is doing, but overall is there to support her. The book is a nice read and suitable for anyone who is into sweet romances and would like to start a series *******************************Audio Book Review********************************* I was fortunate enough to receive the audio book copy of Seized by love at Seaside, and it was the perfect listening experience for a busy commute to work. The narrator is always enthusiastic, clear and adds the right amount of emotion to scenes of the story. Listening to this book took nothing away from the story and as this one contains the 'Naked Baker' i found it more entertaining as an audiobook. I adore Lizzie as a character and this book has always been one of my favorites. It is well worth the purchase on audible and will continue to have you hooked like all of Cole's other works. It is the perfect baked sweet treat.

    Lizzie Barber has been carrying around a secret. Not only is she a florist by day, but she's also host of The Naked Baker webcast. It's something she started back in college after her family fell on hard times and she needed to pay for school. Now, it's something she's continued to do to help her sister through school as well. No one knows. With her super conservative and strict family should couldn't even fathom what they would think.

It's something she started back in college after her family fell on hard times and she needed to pay for school. Now, it's something she's continued to do to help her sister through school as well. No one knows. With her super conservative and strict family should couldn't even fathom what they would think. Plus, despite earning good money - enough to pay off her debts - Lizzie has always been a little ashamed of parading around nearly naked in front of a camera. Her sister only has a couple more years of college left, and then Lizzie plans to hang up her apron for good. Sounds easy, except when she meets Blue Ryder. Blue has had a thing for Lizzie ever since he met her at a wedding nearly a year ago. He's been asking her out ever since, and Lizzie has been turning him down ever since. He doesn't know why, and while he's prepared to step back, he's not giving up by any means. When Lizzie finally agrees to go out with him, their chemistry is off the charts. But can Lizzie and Blue make it work with secrets between them? This has probably been the biggest surprise for me so far in this series. Surprise in a good way. Melissa Moran continues to be a wonderful narrator, and I continue to love how she repeatedly makes each new character their own with varying tone and inflection. She has a wonderful voice for audiobooks and I look forward to each one I listen to. The surprise comes in the form of Blue and Lizzie. With these two characters, and with Seized by Love in general, we have officially moved away from our core group of people who originated the series. None of them appear this time around. This doesn't include Sky who was previously a character on the periphery, but even then Sky only appears minimally. If you're new to the series, Lizzie and Blue are the perfect place to start because, again, they move away from the original characters. At first, I wasn't so sure about this. I've really enjoyed having everyone show up in some form or another and even when it was a different character's turn to shine, Addison Cole managed to make those characters just as important. Here, though, I really felt like we were moving on and it worked out great! I could really feel the emotions surrounding Lizzie's secret. The secret that creates the conflict for the entire story. I thought that Addison Cole did a great job in making it something that brought up a lot of interesting ideas about values. Lizzie's parent's conservatism is a major thing because they would view what she does as degrading and wrong, regardless of the reasons for her doing it to begin with. But others would feel like Lizzie should feel proud for what she's able to accomplish regardless of how she got there. Addison Cole really gives every different viewpoint in regards to what people think about Lizzie's job and she does it in a way where you understand where people are coming from even if you don't share their same views. What stuck a little for me was the fact that Lizzie is doing this (now anyway) for her sister. Yet her sister is kind of oblivious to all of it. I mean, it would be one thing if her sister specifically asked for Lizzie's help, but she didn't. Lizzie freely decided to help with her sister's tuition, yet no one is wondering how she's able to do so. I mean we don't hear about how much Lizzie contributes (if it's everything or just a good portion) so in my mind I felt like she was giving a considerable amount, and the fact that no one was asking how, or making she that Lizzie wasn't doing so as a detriment to her own living situation or business, just didn't flow right for me. Despite this, I felt like the relationship between Blue and Lizzie has probably been my favorite since Tony and Amy and it wasn't even one I saw coming at first or even knew I needed. They work so well together and I really liked how Addison Cole showed Blue handling Lizzie's secret. I've really enjoyed this series, but I have to say Blue and Lizzie's story has really made me excited to see where things go from here and which characters we'll encounter next.

    This is the story of Lizzie Barber and Blue Ryder. Lizzie grew up in a very conservative household. Her parents ran a bed and breakfast, and when Lizzie was in college, her parents had financial problems and couldn't help pay for her college tuition. Eventually Lizzie had a huge student loan and no real prospect of paying it off anytime in the near future.

Lizzie grew up in a very conservative household. Her parents ran a bed and breakfast, and when Lizzie was in college, her parents had financial problems and couldn't help pay for her college tuition. Eventually Lizzie had a huge student loan and no real prospect of paying it off anytime in the near future. After some suggestions by a friend, Lizzie started a cooking webcast that she did entirely on her own. It wasn't your typical cooking show though. Because of the way Lizzie was raised, she felt completely ashamed of herself for doing the kind of show she did, but she was determined to pay off her loans and open her own flower shop. Through hard work and good business decisions, she was able to earn enough to do exactly what she wanted. Unfortunately, Lizzie has a younger sister who has just begun college and Lizzie is doing her best to keep her webcast going and save enough money to continue to pay for her sisters tuition so she can graduate without student loans hanging over her head. While Lizzie is tired of living her secret life, she is proud of herself for working hard and raising the money she has over the years. It's the one thing though that's keeping her from saying yes to Blue when he asks her out. She doesn't think anyone could understand why she does what she does. Blue has wanted to go out with Lizzie since the first time he met her. Unfortunately, she turned him down. Just like she has continued to do for the past year. They're still good friends though and he's working on remodeling her kitchen, so he's always around. One day, Blue finally wears Lizzie down, and she agrees to go out with him. Blue learned so much more about Lizzie and her giving heart, that he couldn't help falling for her. Until the day Lizzie tells him about her secret. Blue really struggled with it at first. But he cared too much about her to let her video webcast destroy what they had. This was such a great story. It had just enough heat and chemistry between the characters, but also showed the struggles some couples go through. The relationship wasn't all roses and sunshine. They faced real obstacles. Not just from her webcast, but also from her family. And Blue was human. He was a super sweet guy that didn't handle it well when Lizzie explained about her show, but quickly realized that it just a business and a means to an end. I enjoyed not only getting to know Lizzie and Blue, but also the rest of the characters in the book. I highly recommend this book. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    I WANT ME A BLUE!! Good grief! Are there any men like this one and, if so, where could I find one? This was an adorably sweet book and I loved every minute of it. Blue Ryder, a builder, and remodeler from a family of eight, has been interested in Lizzie Barber for a year and has asked her out repeatedly. He hasn't had a serious relationship since he was eighteen and walked in on his then-girlfriend bumping boots with another man. He lost his faith in women and hasn't been seriously involved with I WANT ME A BLUE!! Good grief! Are there any men like this one and, if so, where could I find one? This was an adorably sweet book and I loved every minute of it. Blue Ryder, a builder, and remodeler from a family of eight, has been interested in Lizzie Barber for a year and has asked her out repeatedly. He hasn't had a serious relationship since he was eighteen and walked in on his then-girlfriend bumping boots with another man. He lost his faith in women and hasn't been seriously involved with one since, keeping his heart safe for many years. Although Lizzy would love to go out with him she turns him down each and every time he asks...until she wasn’t strong enough to resist him any longer. Blue treated her beautifully and fell for her quickly as she did him. They seemed to be the perfect match. Blue knew exactly what he wanted and knew from the day he met her that she was the one. Now if only she gave him a chance. What a man! Lizzy Barber has had her eye and heart on Blue Ryder since she met him one year ago at a friend’s wedding. She thinks he is one of the best men she’s ever known but she has a secret that will surely threaten their relationship, one she doesn't believe any man could or would accept. She owns a florist shop and it does well but she had a mountain of school debt throughout her time at university and she had to try and make it financially on her own when her father became ill. After paying off her college loans her goal was to save enough to open her floral shop without debt. At night, twice a week since she was a college sophomore, she secretly hosts the 'Naked Baker' webcast which she has monetized, wearing an apron and heels. (She is not naked and keeps her angles to the camera as such that nothing shows but as she bakes she very sexily seduces the camera, ergo the men who are watching.) She thought as soon as her business debt was paid off she would be finished with that part of her life and she could move on, except her father was still unable to work much because of his health. Lizzy certainly didn't want her younger sister to struggle and worry how she would pay her own way through college. It also concerned Lizzy what her sister might turn to in order to earn enough for her schooling. Lizzy decided she would keep on with the 'Naked Baker' until her sister graduates but when she fesses up to Blue he does not react well at all. He is so hurt and feels she set out to deceive him to some degree. I definitely recommend this book. I read it twice in two days!
