Secrets of an Alpha Male is my third book by J.D. Hawkins and I have to say, it is my favorite. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. I found Hawkins's writing to be very descriptive, I was able to picture the scenes and feel the emotions of the main characters to the point that I was drawn into the story. I even had attitude changes while I was reading, I felt like I was ready to kick ass one minute and the next chug a kale smoothie.
Connor 'Alpha Male' Anderson is one of the cockiest characters I have read up to date. His shit talking, showboating, and his confident attitude lands him a fight for a title-weight belt, he finds himself having to prove to the other fighters, fans and himself that he is the best MMA fighter in America. Cockiness aside their is something about Conner that has the reader falling for him and cheering him on.
Frankie Jones not only pulls off wearing yoga pants and a sports bra, she is great at what she does as a yoga teacher, the paperwork aspect of her business not so much. I found her attitude to have plenty of patience even though her business is up in the air, her sister is so uptight, a vindictive jealous ex and having Conner's amazing body and sexual presence around her, that would be too much for any free spirited woman to handle.
These two characters mesh perfectly, his temper and strong personality to her laid back knows what she wants persona seems to fit. It doesn't hurt that it seems impossible to keep their clothes on when they are together. I loved everything about this story it was more than sexual references on pages, it is a man realizing that he has to get knocked down a few pegs to actually know what it is to be a real " Alpha Male ". It is also a story of figuring out that pride doesn't always have to get the best of us. Memorable characters, great storyline and perfectly written, I couldn't ask for more from J.D. Hawkins. It's a definite 5 star read!!!
