1. Christian Grey (Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy E.L. James)
Christian is an iconic fictional character who at the opening of the first book in the series is a twenty-seven-year-old brilliant self-made billionaire. He is successful, charming, and sexy as fuck! He has exceptional lovemaking skills and excels at everything he does. I mean damn, the man is a hugely successful business man; he's a trained pilot and flies his own helicopter (Charlie Tango). As if that’s not enough he is a glider plane pilot, an astounding piano player; and he speaks fluent French. But the sexiest part of him is that he has a dark, dirty, kinky side. The fact that he secretly practices BDSM has ruined more than one pair of my panties since E.L. James published her books.
2. Gideon Cross (The Crossfire Series by Silvia Day)
Like Mr. C.G. above, Gideon Cross is a young, sexy billionaire a dark side and a secret looming over him from his past. He exudes tremendous power and steely control. Gideon is witty, cool, cocky and impulsive. He is also magnetic and controlling. He knows what he wants and he gets it every time. Charming and alluring, Gideon is sex on a stick, every woman's wet dream, intelligent and jealous to round it off. He is very protective and passionate about the woman he loves. He excels at everything he does (including sex) and also dapples in the pleasures of BDSM. As if Mr. Grey hadn’t ruined enough of my panties, Mr. Cross got to a few of them himself with lines like these: “Are you sleeping with anyone?...Because I want to fuck you, Eva. I need to know what’s standing in my way, if anything.”
3. Travis Maddox (The Beautiful Series by Jamie McGuire)
Travis Maddox is a college sophomore who drives a Harley. Who doesn’t love a guy who drives a motorcycle? He has a notorious reputation for being quick to anger, tough, and the typical dick that avoids commitment. Add to that that Travis is a frat boy and the undefeated fighter of The Circle--an underground fight ring where he is known as "Mad-Dog", and I was forced to make a trip to Victoria’s Secret for a few new pairs! Travis is the ultimate romance book hero with a twist--he's kinky and dominant, an alpha male and risk-taker who goes for what he wants--and gets it. He is a skilled and passionate lover. He is gorgeous, with an amazing body. He’s a fit, adventurous, and powerful bad boy.
4. Jace Crestwell, Ash McIntyre and Gabe Hamilton (The Breathless Series by Maya Banks)
They are three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country, three best friends who are accustomed to getting anything they want even if that means sex with a woman…together. They are successful business partners, imposing and irresistibly sexy. They enjoy exploring the wilder side of sex and demand control in their beds. They are extreme and uncompromising, living in a provocative world of wealth and sharing intense sexual experiences with their women.
5. Damien Stark (Stark Trilogy by J. Kenner)
Damien Stark can have his way with any woman. He’s sexy, confident, and commanding. Anything he wants, he gets. Damien’s demands are intense and when not met to his liking he’s reactions are beyond his control. And, of course, like the rest of the Alphas on this list, Damien has a dark secret from his past threatening to destroy him and the woman he loves.
So it doesn’t matter if it’s Christian, Gideon, Travis, the Knights or Damien Stark, all the Alphas on this list have the key elements necessary to become your next favorite book boyfriend. (and ruin your panty drawer!) They are all extremely handsome, they can make a woman want to undress with just the look in their eyes. Here’s the key though…they can have any woman they want, easily. But they are all also loyal to a fault and they only want one woman. That lucky lady manages to tame the sex man-whore beast inside them. They are wealthy and powerful and their main goal in life is to take care of the love of their life while ensuring her safety from danger even if that means protecting her from themselves.
