It’s unfair but true–some jobs are simply sexier than others. You never generally hear men boasting at parties, “Oh yeah, I’m a bad-ass burger flipper,” or “I rock out the accounts department of a used car lot.” These men might have a million other fabulous qualities, but they won’t lead with an unsexy profession because they don’t want to be judged by what they do.
We all jump to conclusions based on career. Example: picture a bus driver in your head right now. Is he middle-aged, a little portly and a lot grumpy? Our brains typecast pretty much instantly.
And so it is with romance heroes–half the picture is painted with simply knowing his occupation. Below, I’ve listed the eleven sexiest job titles commonly found in romance, along with a breakdown of the perks and lurks associated for the lucky heroine with each career. These are in no particular order because it’s too hard to choose, they are all too sexy—DON’T MAKE ME DECIDE I JUST CAN’T YOU’RE NOT MY REAL MUM ANYWAY.

You know these men are disciplined and honourable–plus they’ll be RIPPED as all get out.
