The best relationships begin as friendships.

Hawkins is a master of friends-to-lovers tales. Hawkins infuses his romances with the perfect amount of sweetness, spice, sarcasm, and swoon along with a little angst that make for riveting reads that rock readers’ worlds. Unprofessional is a fresh, flirty, and forbidden friends-to-lovers romance that is full of fire!!!
Unprofessional lured me from the very first page. The conversational style writing—so raw and real—CONSUMED ME!!! This sizzling and sugary story SEDUCED ME where I was under its spell.
Beautiful, brunette, green-eyed, and curvy Margo has maintained a platonic relationship with her hot best friend, Owen, for years…years!!! Owen with his tall, muscular body and dark hair. Owen who is a man-whore, sampling women like fine wine. Owen who has a huge heart. Owen who is all alpha and definitely delicious. Owen knows that his best friend is beautiful, but so off-limits, especially since Margo is his co-worker.
One drunk night, limits were tested…
I realize I’m still drunk—or at least I tell myself that, because this feels so good I need an excuse not to stop.
Now that they have had a taste test, Margo and Owen want more….
Suddenly he sweeps close, lifting me out of the chair to clutch my body to his, crushing his lips on mine to kiss me in a way that makes everything disappear. A kiss that says more than a thousand words ever could.
This kiss was intense, intoxicating, and in depth, capturing more than words. Its passion penetrated me, making me melt all over.
Lines are blurred, and remaining professional may be the toughest test of all.
This sweet and sexy story SEDUCED EVERY OUNCE OF ME, hitting all of the right spots.
Unprofessional is FIRE-HOT and FUN with its fresh setting of BuzzFeed-like atmosphere, captivating characters, serial dating, and forbidden office romance…A PLEASURE TO READ. I loved the long history and connection between Margo and Owen, their fierce friendship was truly powerful and endearing. Though I would have loved to have seen more dialogue between Owen and Margo, and a heavier dose of feels, more emotions from these main characters.
J.D. Hawkins WOWs readers once again with witty writing that is raw with characters that feel real. Slaying both male and female viewpoints, J.D. Hawkins’ Unprofessional flows with a natural ease, so smooth and seamless. The catchy and conversational style of Unprofessional ENTICED and ENTERTAINED me. I CRUSHED on this office romance HARD! Unprofessional was unputdownable. ❤
“Wild horses. They sound a lot like you.”
“Yeah. Wild and free, right up until they meet the right person to tame them.”

What happens when the internet’s favorite playboy falls in love?
I have the best job in the world. Date beautiful women and write about it.
But I want to take it to the next level: instead of writing about my experiences make it into an online reality show.
But here is the catch. My boss wants me to share the show with a woman co-host. And he wants that woman to be my best friend and co-worker, Margo.
I’ll date beautiful women and she’ll date hot men. Sounds fair enough.
So now I have to watch her fake date hot men. I used to love going home with a different woman every night, but suddenly this isn’t as fun. Seeing Margo with anyone else is driving me crazy.
And the more time I spend with her working on the show, the less I want to keep our relationship in the friends’ zone. And the harder it is to stop myself from imagining her bent over the copier.
Things are about to get unprofessional.
