Product Description

Savage in the cage. Savage in the bedroom.

Powerful. Brutal. Mixed Martial Artist, Ryland “The Savage” Cole doesn’t play by the rules. He wants it. He takes it. And he wants Jade.

Professional cuddler Jade has not only been hurt but also deceived by the one she once loved. She’s not going to make a mistake again by giving her heart to a man. Especially since she’s now free.

When a motorcycle club threatens her best friend, she puts her life on the line in order to save him, but in order to do that, she must spend every night in Ryland’s arms.

WANT is a full length contemporary MMA Romance, a standalone, and has no cliffhanger.


Excerpt:

The announcer said, “Your winner tonight by way of TKO is Ryland ‘Savage’ Cooooolllle.”

Ryland’s arm was lifted high.

The crowd cheered, and I whistled and clapped along with them. Then I froze as Ryland’s grays ensnared mine. Something powerful gleamed in them. Something predatory, and I was unable to tear away.

A thought crossed my mind. Should I run because of the way he was looking at me? I’d never had anyone look at me like that before. Not any of the menacing women in the prison who were picking their teeth with bones nor my ex when we were in the peak of our relationship. Ryland’s look was scary but another kind of scary. A pure sexual scary, and I kind of liked it.

My insides quivered, and my body ached for him. Sexual tension was a cunning enemy, always present, and I had ignored it since I’d met Ryland. But at the moment, I felt that I was going to blow if he came near me.

He moved, his body a ripple of power as he stalked toward me, ignoring the crowd seeking his attention. A reporter with a death wish stepped in front of him, cutting off his path.

Ryland halted to shoot the man a glare. The reporter changed his mind fast and scurried out of Ryland’s way. Coach threw his hands in the air, shouting at Ryland to stay, but was ignored. Ben must have had iron balls to put a hand on Ryland’s shoulder, but Ryland shot his grays to him, and Ben lifted his hands and backed off slowly.

My jaw had already dropped but fell even more when Ryland vaulted himself up the cage’s chain link, over the edge, and leaped to the ground, his knees bent to soften the impact. The spell broke when people swarmed him like flies, and I lost sight of him.

Tyeesha gave my hand a quick squeeze, mumbling, “Oh Lord, someone has it baaad.”

Who had it bad? Me or him? Because I freaking had it bad. I needed to get the hell out of here before he caught me. As I decided to run far away, maybe Hawaii or someplace farther, I watched the unfortunate person in front of me get tossed aside, and Ryland’s T-shirt-clad body materialized two inches from my face. I cranked my head back and froze.

The lights flashed behind him, and I blinked quickly. The crowd moved and buzzed around me, but they were merely background noise. His white teeth flashed in a predatory way, his grays were molten, and the way he was staring at me had my body flaring from a single flame to a freaking inferno. Run? What was the definition of that word? Before I knew it, he bent and I landed on his shoulder, my breath escaping me.

We were moving before I realized what was going on. I didn’t struggle, but I did attempt to brace myself on his back so I didn’t just hang there. He carried me out of the arena like he was a victorious warrior claiming the glory, claiming his prize. And I was his prize.

Spoilers!
Well this is a new author for me, I didn't mind the writing style though I was disappointed the book was told only from Jade's POV, I think we only got one chapter from Ryland at about 85%, so it seemed random and out of place.
I like Ryland, I mean who in their right mind doesn't love a hot, tattooed MMA fighter, though on occasion's his decisions were a bit iffy due to his protectiveness, but still a likeable character.
Now Jade, hhmmm, I get that her situation was s***ty and I liked the originality of the 'professional cuddlier', even if it seemed weird, but she was really annoying and came across a bit immature and not the smartest at times, I just couldn't warm to her.
There seemed to be a big plot hole that annoyed me. Jade wanted to pay off Gus' debt as she borrowed money from him to start her "business", so she takes the lucrative contract with Ryland, blah, blah, blah, we get to the point of Ryland knowing of the debt but not asking his friend Jase for the money and then throws a fight to pay it off but then changes it to win??? WOW did I totally misread where he was loaded with 5 gyms, endorsements and a brand!!!!! I mean Jade's wage was going to be enough to pay them off at the end of the contract, why not use that money???? This is the main reason for the 3 stars.
Overall an ok read, I liked some of the secondary characters, Jase, Ben, Maverick so would possible pick those ones up if the synopsis interests me enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot Sexy MMA fighter 27 October 2015
By Debbie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Jade was set up by her ex boyfriend and ended up serving time in jail. Once out, she has bills to pay and needs to find a way to make money. She starts a business where she provides her clients comfort as a professional cuddler. Ryland is a successful MMA fighter and becomes a regular client. Once he meets Jade, he decides he wants her even though she's determined not to get involved with a man again. When someone threatens an old friend of hers, she's needs more money. So when Ryland makes her an offer to pay her for traveling with him as he fights, she can't turn it down. When Jade's past come back, they could all be in danger.

Ryland is a quiet, gentle giant. But he's a deadly bada$$ when he fights and makes Jade feel safe when she's with him. She doesn't tell him her secrets even though they get closer and Ryland makes his intentions towards her clear. She tries her best to fight her own feelings, but the attraction and chemistry between she and Ryland is too strong.

There's some drama and suspense and the secondary characters were good. I'd love to see what happens between Jules and Jase if there's another book written. It's told from Jade's POV and I was happy with the ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am a sucker for a good fighter. This started off easing you into the ... 1 February 2016
By Lauren Firminger - Published on Amazon.com

his story ticked all the boxes for me with the added bonus of being MMA. I am a sucker for a good fighter. This started off easing you into the story and slowly you got to know each of the characters associated with Jade and Ryland. As the story goes on you know something is coming and Emma leads into beautifully. It has the heart stopping moments and the moments you wish a character was real so that you could kick them in the nuts, because trust me there are a few of them in there.

Jade knew there was something about Ryland that was going to be her undoing. Ry knew that he had to have Jade and whatever cost. Will it be a happy ending for this badass fighter and the girl with a troubled past or will the past be too much and cost them more then love. One-click and you’ll see for yourself.
5.0 out of 5 stars faithful hero 20 October 2015
By Justirishgirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love protective, jealous & possessive alpha heroes and Ryland a/k/a Savage was. I want to read about a hero who
takes one look at a heroine, falls hard and does not even look at, much less have sex with OW. Ryland was that way.
When he saw Jade, he fell hard and was faithful to her even before they became a couple. I did not have to read about him having sex with
OW. The hero being faithful just does it for me. Also, I want heroes to have a decent enough self esteem that they don't start using the excuses to stay away from the heroines like "I am not good enough for her". Ryland knew that Jade was it for him and did everything in his power to make her his in a short period of time. He did not watch and wait for years before making his move. That drives me crazy when heroes are so risk adverse, afraid of getting their feelings hurt.

The story moves at a good pace. At no time was I bored. Also it had a HEA ending. The only thing that I wish was different were the love making scenes. It surprised me that there were only a few where they took it all the way. There were some scenes where they would be getting busy only to be interrupted at the last minutes, which I always hate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Didn't want this book to end. 8 August 2016
By WynnCreek5 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Really liked the story. Liked Jade. She had a lot of bad things happen to her but she didn't lose her heart. Loved Ryland! Yummy alpha male. I read another MMA romance. REAL - I liked it also. I believe it is very popular. This book should also be a best seller if it is not already. In its way it is a better story. I will also read NEED. I am looking forward to its release. Thanks, Ms. Rider, a terrific afternoon!!!
