Book Review: 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.

I loved, loved this book! It's contains two separate stories that are intertwined by a broken friendship. I read both stories in one sitting.

Liam Maxwell has finally decided to pursue Aria Finely. He bids high at a charity event to win a weekend with Aria. Liam has stayed away from Aria because she works for an opposing corporate lawyer, who also happens to be his old law school roommate and now archnemesis. Their connection is intense! Liam has a plan to win over Aria but can she move past her loyalty to her boss. Oh, man! Liam sent shivers down my spine with his sexy dominance.

Jackson Keller decides that two can play that game. Jackson bids on and wins Mallory Beckett who works for Liam. Mallory was only suppose to be a pawn in his game against Liam. However Mallory has other plans and turns the tables on Jackson, offering herself up for a weekend fling. Mallory holds her ground with Jackson and soon creeps into his heart. They discover they have a lot in common. Mallory also discovers the truth about the feud between Liam and Jackson. Can Jackson make a mends in order to win over Mallory?

I love the dual conflicts the characters faced. Aria and Mallory are faced with choosing between love and loyalty. It doesn't help that Liam and Jackson are swoony, hard-headed, dominates. It's a fight to the end (literally) to get these two men to make a mends. I will say I had a few good chuckles that added the intense sexiness.  5 Stars!
