BOUGHT BY THE BOSS – A Stacey Kennedy Review


It’s sinful, it’s sexy; it’s an amazing duet from Stacey Kennedy! Where some may think that auctioning off a woman for a weekend can be crass or  tacky, Kennedy delivers in this high stakes, archenemy romance duet!

Liam has craved Aria for years despite her being his arch-enemy’s assistant. She’s smart, sassy, and quick on her feet. So when the opportunity arises for him to buy her time, he pounces. And boy do I mean that literally. Liam doesn’t hesitate when it comes to showing his attraction to Aria and how badly he’s desired her from afar. These two are downright sexy and steamy as he pushes her boundaries further and further. Aria knows that Liam is a shark in the boardroom, but can she trust him with her heart when they spend a weekend together? It seems as if he started this by making a ploy to undermine her boss, but as the hours pass and the attraction is too much to deny, Aria knows there’s more to this corporate lawyer than just winning over his opponents; he’s here to win her heart.

For Jackson however was a chance to get back at Liam for stealing what amounts to his little sister and confidant; so he buys Liam’s assistant for a weekend getaway fully intending to have her relax and spend it separate from him. What he hadn’t planned on? Spitfire Mallory to shock him with the seduction of a lifetime. She’s the sexiest woman he’s ever seen and completely not what he expected when it came to women in the workplace. As they decide to dive into an affair together Mallory and Jackson have to decide what they are willing to sacrifice; friendships, careers, or a chance at love. As the past comes out about Liam and Jackson’s rivalry as well, these 4 have to come to reality with their true feelings and what they are willing to put on the line.


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.
