5 Alphas I’m Falling For Right Now
There are so many delicious alpha males packed into this year’s contemporary romance releases it’s giving me whiplash trying to ogle them all! These five are revving my engine lately…
THE PARAMILITARY BADDIE
Appearing In: Dominance Never Dies by Lexi Blake
Alpha Street Cred: I love the enemies-to-lovers trope almost as much as I love gold jewelry, but this is more like arch-nemeses-to-lovers and, in a word, it’s HOT. Former Navy SEAL Case Taggart is beyond furious with reporter Mia Danvers for causing events he believes lead to the death of his twin brother. It’s too bad the chemistry between himself and Mia is explosive, because once they’re thrown together on a mission to South America, he can’t keep himself away…
“Do you have any idea how long I’ve waited to touch you, Mia? How often I’ve thought about this?” His hands were on her waist and he brought them up slowly…He loved how breathless she was. No other woman ever responded as honestly to him as she did. He could trust her body even if he didn’t trust the rest of her.
THE PROTECTIVE THUG
Appearing In: Disclaim by Pam Godwin
Alpha Street Cred: Carrying a torch for his childhood sweetheart, tough cookie Camila Dias, gets Matias through the darker, grittier parts of his job working for a major Columbian drug cartel. I confess there’s nothing I like better than a possessive, stalkerish alpha male, and Matias fits the bill. He doesn’t just keep an eye on Camila, he flies drones over her safe house and conducts video surveillance on her for years before these two star-crossed lovers finally reunite in the back seat of a Range Rover with her half naked, barefoot and bound…
He ruthlessly ate at her mouth, and she gave it right back, her tongue seeking and whipping with all the mistrust, anger and years lost between them. Her frenzied inhales quickened with his own, their breaths crashing together as her fingernails scratched at his hands.
THE WISECRACKING JOCK
Appearing In: Baller by Vi Keeland
Alpha Street Cred: NFL star quarterback Brody is like that little boy at recess who pulled your braids to show he liked you…one look at sports reporter Delilah Maddox’s curvy figure stalking through the men’s locker room has Brody dropping his towel to show her his (ample) goods—on camera, no less. Yeah, he’s got a twisted sense of humor, but that only makes me like this filthy-mouthed player with a heart of gold even more. Because Brody knows how to be serious when it really counts—when it comes to friendship, family and love…
“I bet if I slipped my hand into your panties right now, you’d be as wet as I am hard…And it’s not just your body that has a reaction to mine. I think you feel it…” He slid one hand from my chin, down my neck, and stopped when his palm covered my heart. “Here. I think you feel it here, too...”
THE RUTHLESS BUSINESSMAN
Appearing In: Dominated by Maya Banks
Alpha Street Cred: He’s the kind of man your parents fear you’ll meet when you leave your small town for the Big City. With his devastating good looks, shady business dealings and controlling ways, Drake would make any girl’s daddy reach for a shotgun. Good thing naïve waitress Evangeline’s family are far away and clueless as she falls under Drake’s spell, entering his dark world and becoming his full-time submissive and live-in girlfriend. But after the ruthless businessman with the posse of sexy thugs destroys her heart, can he ever make Evangeline trust him again?
There was no hint of the dominant lover Evangeline had come to crave over the course of their relationship. This was a man making love to her with reverence. There was tenderness and apology in every kiss, caress and stroke in and out of her body. It was a side of Drake she hadn’t seen.
THE SMOOTH TALKING CHARMER
Appearing In: The Southern Gentleman, Books 1 & 2 by Sweden Reese
Alpha Street Cred: Devilishly handsome Nolan isn’t just another sexy Dominant…he’s a man with principles. He’s a jaded and cynical Washington fixer who doesn’t believe in anything except his personal code of ethics, which includes total self-discipline. Then he meets America’s favorite political daughter, Lola Randall. Fiery Lola has a way of getting under Nolan’s skin and making him lose control. She’s inexperienced and totally off-limits, but he can’t make himself walk away from the beautiful heiress…
She barely had time to process what was happening as he drew her face upward and claimed her lips persuasively, demandingly. Her senses reeled, overpowered by his nearness, the pressure of his mouth, his masculine scent. He held her head immobile, taking what he wanted, forcing her lips to yield to his assault.
Matias, Case, Brody, Drake, Nolan…Those are my picks right now. Which alpha hotties are making your breath hitch this week?
