    Visit the Island, you'll never want you leave!

    I have read every book in this series and I don't know how Melissa Foster has me connect to every single character every single time but she does! I love Gabriela and Duke so much. As a reader I thought I loved to read about people I can relate to, but I have nothing relatable to Duke a real estate developer and Gabriella a Greek lawyer/ Island lover. But somehow Melissa pulls you into the story and you never want to leave!

    Great addition to the series!

    Claimed by Love in the highly anticipated second installment in Melissa Foster's Love in Bloom: Ryder Family series. Gabriella Liakos is a tough family law attorney from New York. When she receives a phone call from her grandfather asking for her help to save her family's island from investors she rushed home. Duke Ryder is a real estate investor who, along with his partner Pierce Braden, is looking at opening a new resort on Gabriella's family island. Gabriella's family has charged her with showing the good-looking Duke around the island in hopes that she will be able to scare him away from investing and building on the island. Duke however has other plans. He is instantly attracted to the beautiful Gabriella and the more time he spends with her the more he wants to get to know her and make he his. The pull and tug dynamics of this relationship makes this book such a great read. These two are deeply attracted to each other both physically and emotionally but neither are willing to sway on their view points for the island. Only time will tell if these two will be able to work together in to turning the island into the vision they both have and if this vision will include a HEA for them. I received an eARC of the book compliments of the publisher for my honest review and opinion. All ratings and opinions stated are my own.

    An enthralling contemporary romance, a great read!

    Claimed by Love is the second book in Melissa Foster’s Love In Bloom: The Ryders Series and it’s a passionate love story that can be read as a standalone. Gabriella Liakos is a strong-willed, confident woman who is deeply in love with Elpitha Island where she grew up and where she would love to live but the Island is in financial ruins and the job offering is slim to none. Especially because she’s a family law attorney and well… no one ever gets divorced in Elpitha. Gabriella's grandfather asks her to help him save the family’s Island and their legacy by reaching a good deal with the real estate investors. Duke is a hot real estate investor who wants to make Elpitha into an exclusive resort, with casinos and golf courses. He possesses a very strong work ethic but he’s also a very determined and clever investor. Both Duke and Gabriella weren’t expecting the strong instant attraction between them, the sparks between them are so tangible that almost every member of Gabriella’s family notice and tease them about it. I loved the Island vivid descriptions, the Greek/Southern heritage through Duke and Gabriella’s tour was colorful and I felt like I was being pulled into paradise. Gabriella’s main goal is to scare Duke away, getting him to give up and not invest but she’s too attracted to Duke to resist him. Duke can’t believe he finally met a woman who makes him want to cross a line he never crossed before: the line between business and pleasure. Soon, the line is too blurry and they’re developing feelings for each other and their passion is explosive! I loved Duke’s dirty talk, totally hot and he’s so amazing and patient with Gabriella! But as they are facing each other on opposite sides of the negotiating table… can their passion survive? Will they be able to move on with their relationship? Can’t wait for Jake’s story! I’m also very curious about Trish and Boone’s book (a rock star, oh yeah!). Melissa Foster delivers an enthralling contemporary romance with great characters, heartwarming families and an explosive passion, Claimed by Love is definitely a great read.

    Duke and Gabriella are a dream couple

    Gabriella grew up on Elpitha Island, a place she loved with her whole heart. Gabriella's grandfather is looking to sell Elpitha so new development can come to the island to bring in more people. This is where Duke Ryder comes in. It so happens Gabriella is Duke's tour guide for the island she doesn't want her grandfather to sell. Duke is instantly smitten by Gabriella as Gabriella is loving the looks of the handsome sexy Duke. Exploring the island is only the beginning of the exploring these two do with each other. But can Gabriella over look the fact that the man she is falling for wants to change the island she adores. Melissa never disappoints. Melissa has done it again with this beautiful love story.
