Logan Chance's debut novel "LIKE A BOSS" is a compelling, well crafted story that is full of feels, humour and intense heat. It tells the story of Penny and Theo who, after an initial meeting, end up working together. Their relationship is fiery and they clash constantly. However there is an immediate connection that they both fight to deny.

I absolutely adored the main characters. Theo is a cool combination of alpha geek with the filthiest mouth that I've heard in a long while. He has the abilit

Okay, seriously my review is.....because I have to come to grips with the ending before moving on to how....the book as a whole ROCKED MY SOCKS OFF!!! I mean a debut author; and the amount of steamy scenes, crazy chemistry and unbelievably-believable drama, made this book one of the best page turning experiences I have had in a long time. Theo

This book was really good for a debut and made for an interesting read. What started off as a one-night stand quickly developed into a sexy second chance romance between a boss and his employee. And then there was a surprising twist that I'm still not sure how to take. Left with one heck of a cliffhanger, I'm just glad I have book two waiting on my kindle!

First off, this is an awesome debut novel by Logan. Seriously, I couldn’t put it down. The writing in this book blew me away. I was so consumed with the story line I didn’t realize it was 3 AM when I finished. This is the second male author that has blown me away recently.

Penelope AKA Penny and Theo (love this freaking name) actually met before they start working together. When Penny realizes who Theo is she, is both excited and pissed that Theo doesn’t seem to remember her like she remembe

When I review a book, I always start out feeling like I am in a magical land with rainbows and unicorns, but then the rain comes and I am standing in a swamp with nothing but darkness. It can take me day’s even weeks with a lot of rewrites before I will even post a review. So, after a lot of head banging and maybe even some tears I have finally finished my review of Like a Boss. 

Good start for a debut author. This book was enjoyable and had characters that were quite likable. I found Penny to be a take no crap type of gal and she went head to head with her boss Theo when he liked to challenge her knowledge. His lack of remembering her gives her all the more reason to push his buttons. Will he ever remember who she is? Will his past come back to haunt him as he struggles to keep the bar afloat? Is a woman like Penny someone he can trust? Although the book ends with a cli ...more

After months of waiting, not so patiently, Like A Boss finally showed up on my kindle. I can't tell you what a treat that was to wake up to! I put everything on hold to read this debut novel by Logan Chance.

Now there was a lot of hype surrounding this book and I was pretty excited about reading it after all of those amazing teasers! What I wasn't prepared for was how far it blew my expectations out of the water! It definitely lived up to expectations and beyond the hype!

This may have been one of the best debut books that I have read in a very long time.
First let me just start by saying the ending made me want to throw my kindle across the room and I may have yelled some not so nice words towards Logan. Ok with that being said this book was Amazing.....Theo is 100% HOT AF!!! Theo first laid eyes on the sassy and spunky Penny when he was trying to grab her attention at a bar, ohhhh and grab it he did. They had one night of passion and the sparks were flying.....

Like a Boss by Logan Chance is a fun, sexy, hot book.

A chance encounter in a bar leads to a hot night of sex for Theo and Penelope. Waking up alone, Theo sets out to find the one girl that could change everything for him. Theo's dream is to own a bar, so, on the recommendation of his lawyer he buys one on South Beach. One that Penelope just happens to work at...only Theo doesn't know this.

This is Logan Chance's debut book and it is beyond amazing. It's well written. From a man perspective he h

Logan Chance has done a wonderful job with his first published book Like A Boss. I absolutely loved the story line, the characters were well developed and the story flowed evenly throughout the book. The way he wrote about Lucy was so genuine in feeling that it made you wonder if he had someone specifically in mind when he wrote the scenes between her and Theo. As for Penny, I loved her character. Smart, sassy, hardheaded at times, she's a great female character. And then there's Theo. Straight ...more

Like A Boss was witty, steamy and full of tension. It was a quick read (finishes around the 80% mark on Kindle) and leaves us with a cliffhanger.

I liked the tension between Penelope and Theo, added with the taboo factor of a boss/employee relationship made for some steamy trysts. Theo has a dirty mouth and man-oh-man was it hot.

I will say one thing about Theo - I hated the fact that he kept blaming Penny for his actions. He would say things such as "This is your fault because you're tempting m

This is one of the best books I've read this year, it's amazing! I devoured it in one sitting, I was taken on an emotional roller coaster and spat out at the end. Everything about this book is perfect, the sex scenes literally scorch the pages. Told in dual point of view, which I love. But the ending, why, WHY!!! If the author had been standing in front of me when I finished I would of punched him! A great debut novel and I can't wait for the next book in the series. Wish I could give it more th ...more

This book was awesome. it had everything you could require from a book, great plot, hot sex, plenty of dirty talk and a shocker of a cliffhanger! The writing was slick and the dialogue fast paced and witty I cannot wait to read the next one.
If this is the standard for a debut novel, I'm pretty sure it can only get better and we all may not survive it!
Congratulations on a wonderful debut

OMG!! I finally got to read this debut novel by Logan Chance. Several months now I have been eagerly waiting for this books release and to then be given the opportunity to read an ARC was amazing.

To say that I was intrigued and completely spellbound is a slight understatement. This storyline was filled with sexual tension that could melt your panties.

This is a seriously well written book for a Debut and I suspect Logan's writing will only get better!

Logan blew me away with this debut. This was a seriously hot read that had heat from the very first chapter all the way to the end. It will also seriously having you holding your breath as you wait for reality to kick in for Theo. That ending literally made me gasp in shock, and now I will be anxiously awaiting book 2 to see where this series is headed. This book was everything I anticipated and more. Well done Logan.
When my book buddies Dawn and Ang are like Jennifer, YOU NEED TO READ THIS (yes they shouted at me) I listened and I’m so glad I did. Like a Boss by Logan Chance is one that sucked me in from the beginning and held me there until the end! This was a great debut for Mr. Chance and I cannot wait to see what else he has up his sleeve!

Ladies, I'm #RuinedByAnotherBrotherChance.

#LikeABoss is the debut novel by Logan Chance, and I've been talking a lot about it on Twitter... now let me tell you what this story is about.

Theo is a business man who bought a bar and he's focused to make it succeed. One night he meet Penelope, has amazing sex with her in the beach and then she was nowhere to be found. Cinderella style.

But Theo wasn't the only one affected by that night. Penelope had vivid memories about the unknown man of the beach.

This was a great 5 star read, I love it when a book keeps you intrigued that you don't want to put it down, Like A Boss was that for me. Logan Chance did a great job reeling you in Cover to Cover, I mean page 1.

I love that Theo has no idea who Penny actually is, I love the fact even more that she knows exactly who he is and still finds was to bite back with her Witty Sarcastic mouth and piss him off in ways that only make him harder than he's ever been in his li

This book was fucking delicious.
Theo can be my boss any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

I refuse to spoil shit for you ladies. So I suggest you get a bottle of wine, sit yo ass down, and get a taste of Theo.

Logan Chance has a gift. He crafts his characters and his scenes so perfectly they make you drool. I almost licked my Kindle when I read that one scene when they were in the bar and someone's pink panties went flying.

Ok I must stop here.. I won't give anything away. READ THE BOOK PEOPLE!!

I went into this book completely blind (which is how I prefer it) and was quickly sucked into a storyline I love. I found myself inhaling this book hoping to get as much of the story as quickly as possible.

Penny is a firecracker, her energy and obvious love for what she does really grabbed my attention. That kind of passion makes a character stand out. Her quick wit and sassy attitude is why she'll stick with me in the future.

Theo was tall, dark, and handsome. He was cocky but, honest his views
