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.

Warning: Not safe for work! Bought by the Boss depicts sexual situations in an office setting and is intended for mature audiences.

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.
Well, two can play that game.
Now Mallory Beckett—Liam’s assistant—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.

    I love any book by Stacey Kennedy and Bought by the Boss did not disappoint. I loved getting to know Liam, Aria, Mallory and Jackson. Liam and Jackson used to be best friends until a woman came between them. Will they ever face what happened between them or will Aria and Mallory be collateral damage to their feud. Definitely, A must read story from Stacey!
  • Amazing sexy read

    I always enjoy Stacey Kennedy's books and Bought By the Boss with it's 2 connecting stories is by far one of her best. His Price is the relationship between Aria and Liam. The chemistry positively jumps off the pages. Their feelings for one another are so believable as a reader you can hardly wait till their HEA. Part 2, Dirty Money is about Mallory and Jackson. Their chemistry is more surprising it bubbles up until it engulfs them. The love/sex scenes between each of the couple are absolutely flammable. The mild BDSM makes them a little edgy and incredibly hot. The relationship between Aria and Mallory adds layers to the plot as does Liam and Jackson's past. This book should be on everyone's TBR and gift lists. I received an Advance Reader copy of this book.

    OMG I devoured this in one sitting despite, trying to read slow, and savor all the yummy, sensuality and passion that Stacey Kennedy brought in these two stories. This book was so addicting, so fantastic that I didn’t want these stories to end. Deliciously Enticing! Liam Maxwell and Jackson Keller were roommates and best friends in Law School until Sophia Flynn. Now they are bitter rivals and opposing Corporate Lawyers. Liam has been taken by Jackson’s beautiful and fierce Assistant Aria, for the last three years. But with the bitterness between the two Aria has rebuffed his advances in loyalty to Jackson. So when Liam wins her for a weekend, at a charity auction for $100.000, Jackson is furious that Liam is out for revenge. But Liam has been burning for Aria, the crazy lusty goodness that is between them is all that he wants, and to make her his. But will Aria be able to give him what he wants and retain her loyalty to Jackson? Mallory Liam’s Assistant was also won at the charity auction with a $55,000 bid, by a mystery person. But imagine her surprise when Jackson Keller is the mystery person. His only reason being revenge. But will he get what he wants? Or will Mallory get what she wants? You will need to read to find out. Loved this! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
  • Full of Heat!

    By ~Mindy Lou~
    4.5 Stars! Both novellas in Bought by the Boss is about two lawyers, Liam and Jackson. These two went to law school together, they were roommates and best friends. That is until a woman came between them that ultimately caused the demise of their friendship. Now they are enemies who only speak to each other in a professional environment. His Price: 5 Stars Liam and Aria have been attracted to each other for three years. Aria is Jackson's assistant and very loyal to him. She knows there is animosity between these two, but she doesn't know what caused it. She just knows she can't act on her attraction out of loyalty to Jackson. When a charity event comes up, Aria sees this as an opportunity to finally give in to her desires for Liam with out going behind Jackson's back. Dirty Money: 4 Stars Jackson is livid that Liam has bought his assistant at the charity event. He loves Aria like a sister and doesn't want to see her get hurt because of Liam and his needs to constantly one up each other. To get back at him, he secretly buys a weekend date with Liam's assistant. He knew this would drive Liam crazy but he has no intentions of hurting Mallory. He wasn't expecting Mallory to offer herself to him. Both novellas were smokin hot! Stacey Kennedy really turned up the heat with these four! I enjoyed both stories but I will say Liam and Aria's was my favorite. They had a very intense attraction since there were true feelings that have been simmering for 3 years. Jackson and Mallory were just acquaintances until their date weekend but they also fell hard and fast. It was ultimately because of these two getting together that forced the confrontation with Liam and Jackson to finally bury the hatchet. Both were fun, quick reads that were full of heat!
