I was so thankful for this read because it has been awhile since I have had an Alpha male BF. So the honors this week go to Sloan Michaels from The Plus One Chronicles Boxed Set by Jennifer Lyon.
Oh! Sloan he stole my heart by....
Being a big ol' softy with a HUGE heart
Being so loyal and loving (well once he got his head out of his ass)
Being a firecracker in the bedroom and sexy as hell but mainly for loving Kat flaws and all.
Some examples of why Sloan slayed me:

A proposition brings billionaire ex-UFC Fighter Sloane Michaels and beautifully damaged Kat Thayne together in fiery passion, but will a dark and dangerous obsession tear them apart?

Book One: THE PROPOSITION:
Rich, sexy and volatile, Sloane Michaels has a dark agenda that keeps his heart on ice. His extreme wealth gives him the control he craves and his skills as an ex UFC fighter the tools he’ll need to extract his ultimate revenge. But when the woman he never believed he’d see again crosses his path, Sloane is caught between the vengeance he needs and a sexual conquest he craves.
Kat Thayne has been in survival mode for six years, hiding behind the sweet creations for her bakery. But when a random carjacking brings her face-to-face with her darkest fears and hottest fantasy, Kat is forced out of hiding and offered a dangerously passionate proposition. One she knows she isn’t strong enough to refuse.
Book Two: POSSESSION:
Savagely sexy billionaire Sloane Michaels ruthlessly controls his life and everything in it. Even his sex partners are carefully negotiated plus-one arrangements, including his latest, the fiery bakery owner, Kat Thayne. But Sloane’s control is challenged when his mentor becomes seriously ill, and Kat takes over more and more his heart. Sloane is in a desperate balancing act of trying to keep the woman he loves while attaining the vengeance he craves.
After surviving an attack six years ago, Kat Thayne escaped her fears in the protective world of her beloved bakery. Then Sloane Michaels storms into her life, making her feel beautiful, strong and sexy. Yet as Kat pushes her boundaries and uncovers a dangerous secret in her past, Sloane’s controlling side emerges. Worried that Sloane will possess her mind, body and soul, Kat fights to keep her hard won independence. But just as Sloane demands her complete surrender, she discovers he has a dark side that could destroy them both.
Book Three: OBSESSION:
In the explosive conclusion to The Plus One Chronicles Trilogy, obscenely rich, jaggedly handsome and still obsessed with love and vengeance, Sloane Michaels must face an impossible choice: lose the woman he loves or betray his twin sister’s memory.
Watching the man she adores destroy himself for revenge, Kat Thayne knows she should run and never look back. But running isn't her way anymore. Kat has grown into a fierce fighter, and the man who helped her get there is the very man who needs her strength now. But as the sizzling passion and hard-won love bind Kat and Sloane even tighter together, old secrets and lies explode around them. Danger threatens. And Kat soon realizes that she’s risking more than her heart to be with Sloane…she’s risking her very life

I came across this book from a recommendation from a friends. She was all 'Have you read this book. I love Sloan' After hearing that I usually have to see for myself especially since her and I have similar taste in our book boyfriends. I was hardly into the book and she was already foaming at the book to see if I loved Sloan as much as she did. At this time I was only a few pages in so I said not yet. She thought I was being harsh but...now that I am done I totally have to agree I LOVE SLOAN!!!!
My love for Sloan was gradual as well as my love for this series. When I first started to read it I was like 'ok I like this and it was probably going to get a 4 out of 5 but as I kept reading the story kept getting better and better and my love for Sloan was like a slow simmer.
In this book we have Sloan Michaels who has a shit load of baggage and one focus revenge . He has no time for distraction so when wants to get his rocks off he engages in a plus one arrangement which is sex with very little strings but no commitment.
We also have Kat Thayne who is physically damaged but has a fighting spirit under her damaged psyche. The damage was a from brutal parents and a mugging attack.
Once Sloan sees Kat he is instantly drawn to her and wants to protect her. Very quickly Sloan convinces Kat with his plus one arrangement by in return he will teach her self defense so she can learn to protect her self and regain her self worth again.
After Kat's attack she knows there is more to the story but with the help of Sloan and her new friends she starts to realize the brutal truth. At the same time she gains new love, family and friends especially with Drake. The whole story line with Drake stole my heart and had me sobbing like a baby.
During this Plus one arrangement very quickly it becomes so much more between Sloan and Kat.
I have to admit I absolutely loved this series and Sloan. I loved the story. I loved the relationship with Drake. I loved the chemistry between Sloan and Kat. Loved the way he loved Kat with her physical flaws and all. This book hit the spot for me and my Alpha fix. Thanks for the recommendation Kathy!!!!!
