What happens if these two get more than they bargained for?
What if the one person you want more than ever is the one person you hate even more?
Like a Boss is the first book in the adult contemporary romance Like a Boss duet series by Logan Chance. I hardly ever get the opportunity to read a romance book written by male author, so I was super excited for Like a Boss. I really liked the story. I loved the back and forth bickering between the two main characters, Theo and Penny. Watching them fight was my favorite part of the book. Like a Boss is a quick read that will leave you wanting more.
Theo and Penny meet one night when she is all dressed up in a wig (and I guess contacts?) and even though neither one of them can get the other out of their heads, when they finally meet up again. This time Penny is a bartender in Logan’s new bar- he has no idea who she is. I found it hard to believe that he didn’t recognize her right away, and certainly after he was around her more, but he didn’t. What I did like about Theo was that he loved both versions of Penny. Except this new employee version also got on his nerves big time. It was a blast to read.
I loved that Theo had no idea how to run a bar. It made the story so interesting, especially since Penny knows so much about the inner workings of a bar. I loved everything about the dynamic between the characters in Like a Boss. It was a purely fun read for me. I blew through it quickly and I was left wanting the next part of the book right now. I could have done without the whole other guy aspect. I felt like that was a bit forced, since we don’t even see him until the end of the story. I know it is going to come into play in the next book, but I would have preferred Penny and Theo’s drama to come from somewhere else. I hated the way the first book left off. It is like a vice tightening on my heart.
Bottom line: If you are a looking for a hot summer read, Like a Boss fits the bill. Watching Penny and Theo fight, while they were trying to resist their pull to one another was a blast. I had a great time reading Like a Boss. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen next. (and it better not be something bad!)
Plus! Logan Chance, has a brother- Jacob Chance who is also a writer! And at least one of the brother’s lives in Florida. How awesome is that? Two brothers writing romance. I love it. go @BrotherChance
