Bought by the Boss by Stacey Kennedy

What’s better than one bad-boy boss? How about two?

In a duet of naughty novellas, a charity date auction turns into all-out war when a pair of powerful corporate lawyers each buy the other’s assistant for a weekend of seduction.


I’ve wanted Aria Finley from the moment I met her.
We flirt, we laugh, we connect. It could be perfect.
She’s even best friends with my assistant.
Problem is, she works for my archnemesis—Jackson Keller—and she’s the kind of girl who stays loyal unless you give her a reason not to.
Besides my hard-on there’s something hot between us, and I won’t rest until I put my finger on it.
So when I get the chance to buy Aria for the weekend at a charity auction, there’s no limit.
I’m going to take her home and take what I want because I’ll make her want it too.
And by Monday, she’ll know she’s mine.

Liam Maxwell thinks he can get to me through my assistant, Aria.
Well, two can play that game.
Now Mallory Beckett—Liam’s assistant and Aria’s best friend—is mine for the weekend.
Only she has no idea who bought her at the charity auction.
This is going to be worth every penny.
But soon I realize that Mallory has been waiting for my touch all along.
What starts as a fling turns into something more.
From the beginning, I was so focused on stealing her away.
I never thought about the fact that I’d drown if I lost her.
Now the game has changed. And she needs to know that she belongs to me.


➤ BAM:


Bought by the Boss by Stacey Kennedy

How many of you have read Stacey Kennedy? If you haven’t, you should really remedy that. She writes exceptionally well. Most of her stories are sexually driven and lean to the kinky side. They’re also so full of heart it is ridiculous.

Bought by the Bossis a book of two novellas that intertwine and they are glorious! They’re complete opposites in tone but they mesh really well together! Where one has a more playful tone to it, the other is more brooding. Where one couple have been dancing around each other for years, one has insta sparks they didn’t even know they had. Both couples have known of each other personally and professionally for years but because our heroes have bad blood between them there has always been tension. And that tension exploded in both their short stories!

High rec from me …. I loved every word and I enjoyed how each story fed off the other to a wonderful Epilogue in the end!

Bought by the Boss by Stacey Kennedy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is nothing better than having to read two amazing stories in one book. This was a delight to read let me tell you.

We have Liam and Jackson who had a falling out way back in collage and being men they never fully disclosed why things ended the way they did.
They are both lawyers and can’t stand each other. But they both have something that other wants – amazing and brilliant assistants in Aria and Mallory.

The first story starts when Liam wins company of Aria in a charity for the weekend. Liam is determent to prove to Aria that he is more than what Jackson portraits him to be.
To say that they spent one hot weekend together is an understatement. Liam is very persuasive and manages to win Aria over even when she tells him that she will not give up her friendship with Jackson.

The second story starts whit Aria receiving text from Mallory telling her that her mystery date is Jackson. Jackson is determent to get back at Liam so he won Mallory at the same charity just to spike him. But the joke is on him because at this little getaway he sees something special in Mallory which doesn’t give him peace when they return to the city and Mallory discovers that maybe Liam was right all along about him.

This two stories had funny moments, swoony moments and of course hot-and-steamy moments.
I fricking loved then all.

EXCERPT from His Price

I take two steps forward but when a firm hand grasps my arm, I’m ready to either kick someone in the junk or yell at them as I spin around and find myself gazing deeply into Liam’s potent eyes.

He’s fancy with his neatly tailored black suit and navy blue tie, and dear God, he is gorgeous. His dark eyes pin me to where I’m standing with the power they possess. His chiseled jaw and sculpted mouth are perfection. Liam is what teenage boys dream of being when they grow up. A sexy as hell man.

“Hello, Aria,” he says smoothly, seductively. “Might I have a moment, please.”

He slides his hand down my arm to take my hand. I shiver at the heat of his touch as he leads me into the alleyway, placing us behind one of the walls of the parking garage, keeping us out of sight.

“Do you think it’s wise to tempt me? To tease me?” he asks, stepping closer until my back is pressed against the wall and his hands are on either side of my head.

I swallow against the fierceness he projects. “It seemed like a good idea at the time.” Now maybe not so much. I admit that I hadn’t expected him to act on it. Hell, I tease him all the time. Though maybe Liam’s reached his limit. I stare into the heated depths of his eyes and realize I’ve never seen him like this. Unleashed. Raw. A burn sizzles through me, pooling heat low in my body.

The side of his mouth arches obviously in response to the hitch of my breath, the flushing of my cheeks. His grin is as deadly as it is sexy. “Do you think I don’t know that if I wanted it, I could have you?” The passion exuding from him consumes me, swallowing me whole when he adds, “I know you are well aware that the only reason I haven’t touched you before is because I’m respecting your loyalty to Jackson.”

He leans in and as I inhale his woodsy scent, my heart is racing, thighs are clenching, sex is drenching with desire.

“Do not toy with me, Aria.” He brings his mouth close to mine, his warm minty breath brushing across my parted lips. “Do not push against me because I will not lose. Let this be a reminder of that.” His big, strong hand pushes against my thigh. I’m spreading my legs for him before I even wonder if I should.

His fingers slowly slide upward, giving me the chance to say “stop.” I should end this right now because I’m only proving him right, that where it comes to him I have no control and that I’m all talk, but somehow I can’t stop him.

I want this.

I want him.
