"This book is so deep. There is love and loss and strength on almost every page." Goodreads Review
The Ryders are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series. These hot contemporary romance novels feature alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women's fiction.
In CHASED BY LOVE...
Actress Trish Ryder takes her job seriously and has no time for those who don't. When she's awarded a major role in a new movie featuring America's hottest rock star, Boone Stryker, she's beyond excited. The six-two, tattooed hunk of burning desire is known for his dedication to his craft--but when he ditches their first meeting, she begins to wonder if he's just another rocker with a great PR team.
Sex, booze, women, and music pretty much sums up Boone Stryker's private world. He's coasted through life playing by his own rules with plenty of people willing to cover his tracks, and he's not likely to change--until he meets a woman who refuses to give him the time of day, much less anything more.
Sparks fly from the first moment Trish and Boone meet--tensions run hot and desire runs hotter when they're trapped together on a remote location with no place to hide. Will sparks ignite, or will a hurricane douse the flames?

Ordered to spend ten days alone together, what will Trish and Boone discover?
Trish Ryder is an A-list actress. She is at the top of her profession but she has become bored of the unchallenging roles she is given. When she is offered the part of Delia in "Rick and Delia", a low budget production whose script screams Oscar, she jumps at the chance. The fact that rising rocker Rick will be played by current rocker and longtime crush Boone Stryker is the icing on the cake. Boone, even though his life is imploding as his mother enters the hospital and his drummer starts using again, also jumps on the chance to be part of a project that shows the dangers of drugs.
When they first meet, Boone knows that he'll never deserve someone like Trish. Trish, on the other hand, is disappointed when reality doesn't meet up with her fantasies. All she sees is an irresponsible, selfish ladies man until the director isolates them at the location shoot for ten days. Once they're alone together Boone can't ignore his attraction and Trish learns more about the real man. Can Boone and Trish overcome their prejudices and make a life together?
CHASED BY LOVE is unusual in that there is no antagonist. This is not completely unheard of in contemporary romance novels as the characters may have to overcome a mistake from the past or a misunderstanding in the present instead of an outside force. However, Melissa Foster takes this a step further. CHASED BY LOVE is simply about life and two people discovering who they are as part of a couple. It is nice to read a romance novel that sets aside the drama so inert in modern media and brings the focus back to reality. Ms. Foster places her characters under the spotlight and then lets them discover how to be real. It makes her book a little meta but the general idea is fascinating and we could all do with taking a step back and asking, if I were able to take a time out and focus solely on my relationship what would I discover?
If you want to read about life in all its confusing messy glory, pick up a copy of CHASED BY LOVE.
