Good read if you like Kenyon. Be forewarned, two of the three short stories have been published in other anthologies. "Captivated by You" was in Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down Anthology, and "Bad to the Bone" was in Big Guns Out of Uniform Anthology. So if you are an avid reader of Kenyon like me, you have most likely read these two stories and there will only be the one new story (the first in the book by the way) for you to read. Still hot and steamy though :)

I read this book because I had heard good things about Sherrilyn Kenyon. The novellas weren't bad, but it takes a lot for me to keep around anthologies. It's a fun read but stretched my imagination a little too much with a secret government agency called BAD.

I love anything Sherrilyn Kenyon writes. This book has 3 novellas. One BAD Night ( Secret agents find romance together), BAD to the Bone (Mistaken identity), and Captivated by You (Agents train for mission-her as a dominatrix).

I really like this series. The stories are short and really just give the beginning of a realtionship. She doesn't try to give you too much like some short stories that end up getting to complicated and contrived to give you an "end".

was okay, I liked the third story the best, it was very funny being the witness of a women trying to make a man submissive! I think I'll give Kenyon one more try.

Three quick reads with contemporary characters involved in odd careers or situations. Funny, particularly the characters in second story about a plain Jane teacher from Ohio who wins a romance book sweepstakes to become the heroine of her fav romance novel.

This book contains three short stories from Sherrilyn Kenyon's BAD universe. Each of these stories is good in its own right, but I would recommend reading the first full-length BAD novel first, otherwise you will be a little lost as to what the agency's purposes and origins are. I like Kenyon's work in general, but do not find this series as entertaining, nor as well-developed as her Dark Hunter/Dream Hunter series.

This book is what got me started to reading other Sherrilyn Kenyon books. She is awesome. You will love reading these novellas and moving on to bigger and BADder.

First things first. I have loved every Sherrilyn Kenyon book I have read thus far. However, this series is just what the title states. BAD
Multitudes of gratuitous sex and very little plot. Guess that's what you get in novellas. There's not enough time to get into a serious plot. If you are looking for a fast, sexy read then you've found the right book. If you are looking for something more....keep looking.

This was great. Sherrilyn Kenyon has been a favorite of mine since my first Dark Hunter book, and I suspect she'll remain pretty high on my list as long as she keeps putting out stories like these...sexy, action-packed, and even funny at times.

This Sherrilyn Kenyon book provides quick reading of three short stories (oops! novellas) with little plot and lots of sex. I've had enough of BAD.

4 stars over rates this book. More like two and a half or three.

Book was "OK". Not nearly as well written or as involving as the "Dark Hunter" series. But, they all can't be winners can they?

This book is made up of 3 novellas. I wish the stories had been longer--I had trouble getting into them since I felt everything was forced and rushed due to the brief length.

I don't normally read this genre, but I read another Sherrilyn Kenyon that I liked, so I bought it. It was steamy, fun, a quick easy read, and surprisingly funny! There are a few lines (especially in the second story) that are absolutely hilarious. Great read.

One BAD Night - I liked Sam's attitude towards Jason, the male slut - handcuff him to the bed naked and take pictures. Turn about and all that. Sam and Jason are the perfect pair - she never gets any andf he gets more than his share. Experience does have it's privileges though and Sam's the one to benefit.

BAD to the Bone - I didn't like the premise of this one but Kyle is hot and the sex steamy so ok anyway.

Captured by You - HOT deviant sex. Rhea plays a great dominatrix and Ace is super sexy...a perfect foil for Rhea.
