Hannah Watson has little time for romantic entanglements. After all, she hasn't met a man yet who can beat her little battery-operated friend.

Until the new CEO arrives. Known for his ruthlessness in business, he's also every woman's wet dream—hers included. His temper alone should be a turn off, but her libido is not listening to reason.

Logan Bryce doesn't tangle with his employees—ever—until curvy little Hannah makes all of him sit up and take notice. Who knew the starchy, always respectably dressed Ms. Watson had such a naughty side? Her proposal to auction off willing celebrities and suitable staff for a ‘date' has appeal, especially with Hannah, herself, on the auction block.

The terms of the auction are clear—a twenty-four hour commitment—plenty of time to get her out of his system.

What can possibly go wrong?

Logan Bryce is everything a woman could want in a man. Wealthy CEO, check. Absolutely gorgeous, check. Tattoos in all the right places, check. Bad boy with a temper to match, check. Doesn't believe in love, uh, wait a minute.

Fear not, Doris O'Connor won't leave us bereft of a happily ever after, not if she has anything to say about it in AUCTIONED TO THE BAD BOY CEO.

Likes: I really enjoyed how the story started by throwing us right into the action…of a business meeting…but hey, we're immersed immediately into the story and it gives us a (coughs) busty view of the cast of characters including Logan and Hannah. And well, who wouldn't swoon a bit when Logan bids on and wins Hannah at the auction, but then again, a bit of outrage might be in order. That is until Hannah shows up in his suite while he's in the shower and then it's back to some serious swooning.

I loved this story. There's something to be said for unconventional families and how they come together and while this one happens under tragic circumstances, the obvious love that grows is heartwarming in a very feel-good way. Add in some seriously hot interactions between Hannah and Logan and a wonderful happily ever after…well, why haven't you one-clicked yet?

Mega hot Brit author Doris O'Connor has done it again with another super-hot and sexy read! AUCTIONED BY THE BAD BOY CEO has an undeniably sexy and alpha billionaire boss who puts Mr. Grey to shame. Logan Bryce is a man who steps in and takes over companies and makes them more successful. When he sees employee Hannah, he decides he wants her too.

Hannah is not remotely happy when a co-worker sets her up to be auctioned off at a work charity function, but her boss sure is. And after an evening of carnal bliss, Hannah is let into Logan's private life more than he ever wanted her to be. A few days later, it causes Logan to make the wildest business proposition of his life.

As usual, I just loved this book! Doris O'Connor has a wonderful flair for words when it comes to interpersonal relations between characters (and the sex is mighty hot too!). You'll love this book! It's a keeper!

A surprisingly emotional erotica!

When Hannah's name ends up on the auction list at her firm's event, she is mortified. The situation is made even worse after her boss is the one who wins a night with her. And the fun doesn't stop there because their night is interrupted by an event that changes the course of their relationship forever. Soon, the couple's trust in each other is put to the test in a way they never imagined.

This started off a little rough for me because without much backstory, I really didn't understand our heroine's trouble with being auctioned off. The whole thing was actually her idea so the fact that she refused to participate was a little odd. Then when her boss wins the auction, the tension was thick enough to cut with a knife. And that's when the naughty time begins. Oh, and it's a whole lot of fun.

But this book also had a big plot twist and deeper storyline, which I definitely didn't see coming. It still has plenty of erotica, but also gains a nice dose of romance. This couple were well-developed and seemed to grow even more throughout the book. I loved watching their attraction to each other turn into something more substantial and seeing the trust develop between them. It's an unconventional way to go about it, but romantic nonetheless. A pleasant surprise! 4 stars!
