Review

Secrets of an Alpha Male is the story of Connor “Alpha Male” Anderson, up and coming MMA fighter.  While in line waiting for a smoothie, he meets Frankie, a yoga instructor.  He is immediately attracted to Frankie, but she has issues of her own to deal with – mostly the fact that her business is generating as much business as she needs it to.

Frankie offers to give Connor yoga lessons, along with breathing lessons to help with his fighting.  Connor immediately notices a difference, and continues to go to Frankie.

Their relationship evolved quickly and wasn’t really believable.  There was a side story of an ex who was still into Connor that was annoying and distracting.

I liked Connor and Frankie – Frankie was a strong, independent woman who was a little too proud.  Connor was a good guy; he was a cocky dude who became more likable as the book went on.  This was a decent story with kind of flawed character development.

Happy reading.
