Which Alpha Athletes Are The Sexiest?

Jill Shalvis, author of It’s In His Kiss, makes the case why surfers are the sexiest Alpha athletes.

What makes MY surfer from It’s In His Kiss, Sam Wyatt, so sexy? Well his uniform of dangerously low slung board shorts, sunglasses, and a wicked smile, for one. And for two, he’s laid-back and easy-going and yet utterly and completely alpha at the same time. Shiver…

Are skiers the ultimate Alpha heroes? Sarah Morgan, author of Maybe This Christmas, explains why these daredevils are the most irresistible athletes.

Downhill ski racing is one of the most adventurous of all sports, combining speed and danger outdoors in conditions where nature can be at its most raw. My hero Tyler O’Neil from Maybe This Christmas, lives and breathes adventure. Until the accident that ended his career he regularly hurled himself head first down near vertical slopes at speeds approaching 90 miles per hour. His fearless, adventurous nature makes him one of the sexiest heroes I’ve written.

Bestselling author Jen Frederick’s hero Noah from Undeclared and “Undressed” is a former soldier who battles his way into the MMA. The author shares why fighters are the hottest athletes around.

He's confident. He knows what he wants and isn't afraid to pursue it no matter what the obstacles. Because he's so comfortable in his own skin, it doesn't matter what others think of you. He knows he's right about how sexy you are and how you DO NOT LOOK FAT in those jeans. He loves everything about you and those people who would judge you? He thinks they are dumb as rocks.

Sarina Bowen takes on heroes on ice to prove, once and for all, that hockey players are the most delicious athletes. What makes them the best?

Hockey players are always ready to receive the pass. Hartley, the hero of The Year We Fell Down has a new best friend across the hall. But Corey has been crushing on her too-delicious-to-be-real neighbor for months. Until one night when things fall apart. Or fall together. All Corey knows is that she's falling. Hard. It wasn't supposed to happen. But a hockey god has many skills: stick handling, stamina, and patience. And the drive to do whatever it takes to win her heart.

Author Kristen Callihan leaves it up to her hero Drew from The Hook Up to give readers a first hand look at why footballers are the most seductive athletes of them all.

Football is a highly physical game, and yet Drew isn’t just an athlete. He gives good conversation too…

“I think about it all the time. How soft will your lips be? What will they taste like? Will you make those sweet little noises like you do when we make love?”

Make love. I shiver. Drew.

I don’t even know if I’ve said his name aloud. It doesn’t matter because he just keeps talking, a confession that grows more urgent even as it slows down. “I want to kiss you so badly, I’d forgo the sex for a chance at your mouth. I love your mouth, Anna. The way your upper lip is like a bottom one, a plump, smooth curve that puffs out like a pout. I love your soft, pink, upside down mouth.”

  1. Hmm...alpha athlete hero? I don't read a lot of romance with sports involved. They best book I've read with an athlete is Naked Edge by Pamela Clare. Gabriel Rossiter is a mountain climber but he does it for fun not a paid sport.

  2. Either motocross or bull riders, both are my fav!
