Bad Boys Online Series Books 1 and 2
Release Date Dec. 07, 2017
To Jared Kinkaid, the only way to keep his mind — and his hands — off his luscious co-worker Candy Appleton is to insult or ignore her at every turn. But his efforts at lust control have his boss convinced that the partners need a little help via online couples counseling. But when they’re mistakenly signed up for sensual couples counseling instead, Jared and Candy’s shock turns to pleasure as they each deliver some hands on therapy of their own…
Candy hoped like heck she knew what she was doing. Jared looked like he could chew up nails and tie them into bows with his tongue. Heaven help her, she couldn’t tell if he was turned on, furious, or both.
And what had possessed her to run on at the mouth about her mother and stepfather? Not that she had an ounce of experience in having casual affairs, but she had to assume you didn’t start them out by talking about your family.
Give her another five minutes and she’d be whipping out photos of last Christmas and her cat wearing a Santa hat.
She finished stretching, her legs stiff from bending over the desk, and chewed her lip as she thought over her next move. This shouldn’t be so doggone hard. She’d been flirting since the cradle, as her mother frequently liked to remind her. But now when she needed it, all she could think to do was smile, which was lame and appeared to have no impact on Jared whatsoever.
It must be nerves. After all, there was a lot more at stake here than getting good restaurant service. Before she left this office today, she wanted a date with Jared. A date that would end up with them naked and Jared turning that intense concentration squarely on her.
Time to take a deep breath and turn up the heat.
“What’s the next question?” Jared said, shrugging out of his suit jacket.
Oh, Lord, he had broad shoulders. She didn’t think she’d ever seen him without his jacket on, and it was a sight worth lingering over. She lingered so long he raised an eyebrow.
The quiz. Right. With elephantine effort she turned around and tried to focus on the computer screen, her cheeks burning.
Jared was turning up the heat, and he didn’t even know it.
After quickly typing in their responses to birth place, she went on. “Question three. Describe the moment you met.”
That was easy. Jared had strolled into the office one Monday morning back in January and she had known lickety split that he would be the one to pull her out of the sexual deep freeze she’d been in since her divorce. He had been wearing a black suit with a burgundy shirt and tie, and he had looked at her, scanned her, and moved on. Dismissed. Dissed.
He had never once deviated in his behavior since.
Jared said nothing. Candy kept her eyes on the screen.
“I guess I’ll just type in that we met at work.”
Her fingers trembled as she typed and she blew her hair out of her eyes, ignoring the disappointment she felt. Dang, what did she expect? Jared to say his eyes had met hers over the length of the meeting room table and it had been fate?
There was no doubt in her mind he could not even pinpoint the first time he had seen her.

Mack Stone can’t believe he’s just walked in on the delicious Kindra Hill having an online affair in her office.
