First, before I even get into what I thought about this book... Professional cuddler?!?!?!  Ummm.... I have to be honest... I googled it.  Is this a real thing?? Does it actually have therapeutic benefits?? WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!?!?!? I kid you not. This through me off for a little bit.  And yepp, it is real and yes it is said to have benefits for those suffering PTSD and other disabilities.

Okay, onto the book...

It's starts with a classic story.  Girl loves boy.  Girl and boy get engaged and start a life together.  Girl gets degree.  Girl finds out boy is a lying slimeball.  Boy sets up girl with drugs in truck of car.  Girl gets arrested and spends time in jail.  Girl gets out of jail with a mountain of debt and becomes a professional cuddler...  You know, happens all the time.

Jade started her business, Snuggle up to Me, to help people (and herself).  She is determined to make it on her own and remain free.  She screens clients and has contracts with them to protect both her and her clients.  She has rules and boundaries with them all.  One client that pushes her boundaries and actually makes her FEEL while they cuddle is MMA fighter Ryland "The Savage" Cole.  

Ryland is heading into his last year of competitive MMA fighting and wants to go out on a high note.  He has worked hard to reach the level of success he has.  He is the type to know what he wants and set a plan on how to get it.  And he has his sights set on Jade.  His "plan" on how to get Jade is a little... unorthodox, but I understood where it was coming from.

By the end of the book, you understand more of the "professional cuddler" aspect of the book.  Want was a good romantic read with some pretty steamy scenes.  I hope Emma Rider writes Jase and Jules story!!
