This was pretty good - sort of medium in the range of the Bad Boys series, and good for a nice quick smutty read. These novellas are definitely more erotic romance than just regular romance.
For anyone who's not familiar with the series, the novellas are like romances that skip right over the getting-to-know-you phase and jump straight to the bedroom, where nobody seems very shy!
I liked "Hard Drive" best too, and "User Friendly" was fine. "Press Any Key" didn't work as well, but it was still okay.
Erin McCarthy does a three-fer and we all win. Her 100 page interludes take you on a rollercoaster ride of hidden desires revealed, and supressed emotions released. She has a wonderful way of letting the character reveal his/her perspective with total candor. Funny, silly and touching moments abound in this little treasure of three novellas. Highly recommended.

"You've Got Male!"
Steamy, fun characters, I might read more romances if they were more like this--sexy & humorous!
Received thru PBS and enjoyed all three stories. I'm an Erin McCarthy fan so I wasn't disappointed. The first two stories were my favorites. Fast, fun and spicy reading.
3 very steamy and also funny stories. I really like Erin McCarthy, she is now one of my new favs. These stories revolve around computers and really great couples. You will surely enjoy.
This is one hot and steamy book.. and I LOVED IT!!!

I really like thi author but I could never get a real feel for these stories.
three sexy stories about men and women online. Silliest one is the couples counseling--best one is the first story about cyber sex. A fun quick read.
Mccarthy's first novel ever. She makes a huge debut into the publishing word, taking us all by surprise. Where did she come from?
Waited for it in paperback! Worth the wait.
Three zingy novellas all in the neighborhood of computers. Fun!
Excellent quick short stories.
3 short novels, very hot!
This book was a little steamier than I expected, and predictable.
Steamy!! I disagree with the review that is showing up right now. I thought the characters had great connections. The stories were fast paced and enjoyable. I read the whole book in one sitting, I liked it quite a bit.
From cybersex partners to hackers gone awry, each of McCarthy's three fiery tales involve couples who interact with computers and find love in the process. In "Hard Drive," Kindra is mortified when her coworker and secret crush, Mack, catches her cavorting online with her cybersex lover. But when Mack offers to show her the benefits of love the old-fashioned way, Kindra realizes what she has been missing. In "Press Any Key," it seems like Jared can't stand his sexy coworker Candy. But beneath his scowl, he is deeply attracted to her sweet ways. "User Friendly" finds Halley reluctantly turning to her best friend, Evan, for help with a hacker. They both have feelings for each other but are afraid to act on them until the heat of the hacker chase finds them giving in to their lust and discovering the perfect mate in each other. Both naughty and nice, Bad Boys Online is sure to charm readers from start to shut down. Megan Kalan

These were three really cute stories. "Hard Drive," "Press Any Key" and "User Friendly." Passionate, yet laugh out loud funny. Believable characters and situations, too. A refreshing book
3 different stories involving computers. Light reading, entertaining.
Three stories .... wicked humor and red-hot passion
I was disappointed and I thought the stories were weak.
