In the market for a hot tip? Here’s one.

Don’t bang your best friend’s little sister. Especially when she’s an investigative journalist and your company is the target of her latest exposé.

Unfortunately, I’ve got a hard-on for high-risk bets, and I’m more than eager to invest my considerable stock holdings in Ellie Seyfried’s…ahem…glorious assets.

OMG!!! Like A Boss by Sylvia Pierce and Lili Valente gave me all the feels I love in a great friends to lovers, best friend's sister romance. These two characters are sexy and the attraction is felt right from the start. Their chemistry and witty banter left a smile on my face throughout my read.

Wholly Smokes Jack Holt is one knee buckling character, he is a chief executive for a Wall Street Investment Firm that was started by Jack and his best friend Ian. Both men believe to run a equal opportu

I thought that this storyline was so creative and original, I don't think I've read any contemporary romances similar to it.
In order to write a ground breaking story, journalist Ellie Seyfried will have to go deep undercover in the Wall Street world of finance. Good thing her older brother and his (hot) best friend, Jack Holt, own a broker firm. Bad news is that she can't keep her mind off of Jack and the sexy way he controls a board room.
This is a romance for the ages. Boy meets girl

Funny, sexy and all the feels…

Two of my go to authors collaborate on a sexy romance? Sign me up as I know it will be romance gold. They have a way with words that can make me laugh, cry or get mad with a poignant scene or a flippant one-liner. With Jack and Ellie they delivered yet again!

Like A Boss is a standalone novel by Lili Valente and Sylvia Pierce. I have had the pleasure of reading books by both of these very talented authors so I knew it was going to be a treat to have them writing one together. A delicious, fun, and unexpected treat.

Jack needed a broker. Ellie needed a cover. They both needed a way to make a change.

Ellie needed this story. She was willing to do whatever it took to get the scoop. She was tired of writing puff pieces. She wanted a real story. One that

4.5 Star Review of Like A Boss By Sylvia Pierce & Lili Valente
This book was a great read and I thoroughly enjoyed Like A Boss. Sylvia Pierce is a new author to me and one I will be checking out further. I have read a couple of books from Lili Valente and I love her style of writing. Not only were the main characters entertaining but so were the secondary characters and I was engrossed from the start.

What a fantastic book! I listened to the audio version, that was performed by Andi Arndt and Sebastian York. Ellie is an investigative journalist and is writing a piece on the differences between men and women in the financial investment workforce. Her initial investigation turns up nothing substantial since she is investigating her brother's firm and no one is willing to speak candidly. With her brother on travel for a month, Ellie decides to work undercover at the firm and convinces her brothe ...more

A Review of Like A Boss by Sylvia Pierce and Lili Valente

Ellie and Jack - 5+++++ Stars

Oh. My. Goodness! I totally LOVED this story and the characters! Both of these authors are most excellent in their own rights, but put them together and you get something truly magical and OUTSTANDINGLY awesome! This isn't your normal lust for your best friends little sister story! With all of the heartache that Ellie has been through with losing her mother at a young age and the horrors that Jack dealt with du

I like this co-author pairing of Lili Valente and Sylvia Pierce. Together they've written this cute story about recluse journalist Ellie Seyfried who has decided to write an article about her brother and his best friends investment firm. Unfortunately her initial research shows that not all is hanky dory and requests more time to investigate. Since her brother is needed at the new West coast office he entrusts her to his best friend and fellow partner, Jack Holt.

Jack Holt was everything one exp

Loved the narration and the story was refreshing and cute. It also raised some timely issues about gender in the world place. Definitely recommend!

“If a mug-or freelance journalist-goes unwashed in the privacy of her tiny Queens apartment, does she smell? I think not.”

It always amazes me how two authors came come together to right one book and it is so seamless that you can’t tell who wrote what. That is EXACTLY what Lili Valente and Sylvia Pierce did with “Like a Boss”.

This is a bit of a gender bender in that Ellie goes undercover as a man at her brother’s business to explore how far companies have come with regards to equal opportuniti

Like a Boss was my first time reading Lili Valente and Sylvia Pierce and I’ll certainly be reading more of both authors in the future. They work so well together, and I’m interested in seeing how they work alone – I’m sure the results will be just as wonderful.

I’ll be completely honest, I expected a standard office romance from Like a Boss. Fortunately, my misinterpretation was quickly put right. Sure, this is an office romance, but it also more. It is a brother’s best friend romance, too. It is

I Capital L LOVED this book so much!!!! Jack & Ellie are amazing!! They have chemistry for days!! This is such an incredibly original story line that I instantly fell in love with it!! Lili & Sylvia you ladies rock and really made magic together here! I hope there is more collaboration to come, like maybe Ian’s book??
You can’t not fall in love with this couple. It would be next to impossible. There are so many great lines in this book from Ellie & Jack but I honestly don’t want to spoil a thing
I had the most fun reading this romcom. Just the premise got me hooked because how could I resist a little spy disguised as a man infiltrating a firm to uncover some dirty secrets?

Even though the story unfolded in a different way as I had anticipated, I didn't flinch at the change at all. Not only was the plot addictive and fun, the writing as lively and smart as possible, and the chemistry between Ellie and Jack arousing and hotter than summer kisses, but it also raised important gender issues

I just love a best friend’s little sister romance. One that’s smart, funny, sexy and keeps me turning the pages is ideal. And that’s what you’ll find in Like a Boss.

I had so much fun getting sucked down into Ellie and Jack’s world of financial espionage. Jack and Ellie are in this doomed from the start project together. Ellie’s in over her head some days and Jack tries to keep her in check and keep the business running. I love how Ellie really uncovers what’s happening at the investment firm—bo

The novel was on the feminist side of things. Ellie is working undercover in order to find enough data that prove that no matter how hard her brother tries the female and male employees aren't getting paid the same. I liked that aspect of the book since it felt real to me and I found myself been more curious about Ellie's undercover job than her romance with Jack. It was rather underwhelming mostly because I was expecting something more forbidden and Ellie's brother to have some kind of reaction ...more

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This book is a collaboration between two authors that i really love to read and it was everything i wanted and more.

Jack is the alpha male in charge of a brokerage with Eleanors brother and has known Ellie for years and Ellie wants a story that will take her away from writing puff pieces.

Eli is a strong woman with a nose for a story and for a mystery and there is certainly something at this brokerage that piques he

I loved this book but I’m fast becoming a fan of anything Lili Valente writes!! It had all the favorite things! The drama, the comedy, the romance, and most importantly the hot and steamy parts. ;) lol 😂 But most of all this book had a very important and wonderful message behind it. And it will definitely make a lot of sense to us women and even though we’ve made a lot of strides in the issue we still have problems. Ellie is a character and I absolutely love her and her craziness to ge
I swear Lili Valente's books are freakin phenomenal not only to they sick me in, but they keep my full attention through the whole book. So much so that I want to tell work to kick rocks, I have a Valente book right now. J/k co-workers!

Seriously though, this book was great. The plot was classic and I loved the fact that the brother didn't go all crazy. It's nice to see that once in a while.

That being said, I'm looking forward to this duo collaborating together again soon.

The whole forbidden love romance stories are on top of my list of reads! Like a Boss by Lili Valente and Sylvia Pierce met that expectation and soared with it! A new favorite is falling in love with your best friends sister. Jack was not sure what to do with the situation he finds himself with Ellie, his best friend's Ian sister.

These two are a power couple with a force that can tear down anything. Their passion was off the charts and they have to keep it a secret. I was hoping they would come

First off the narration was over the top fantastic!! Jack and Ellie’s story was very original from what I have read recently. Between walk-in a mile in the other genders shoes and gender equality in the work place there is a love story that is original and fun. This was a quick fun listen that makes you think about attitudes in the workplace, what more do you want for an afternoon escape? 4.5

Like a Boss is utterly adorable, the characters are endearing, the plot itself challenges perceptions while delivering insight into the topical issue of gender equality. Although the delivery of the morale of the story is wrapped around a wonderful 'brother's best friend' romance ♥

Jack and Ellie have secretly nurtured an attraction to each other for a very long time but their relationship has remained in the friend-zone out of respect for Ellie's brother and Jack's best friend - Ian.

Like A Boss by Sylvia Pierce and Lili Valente was a fantastic read, one that I didn’t want to end. Ellie is an investigative journalist and is writing a piece on the differences between men and women in the financial business. Her first run doesn’t turn anything up. Thing is, it is sort of odd since she is investigating her brother’s financial investment firm and no one will speak to her. With her brother traveling for a month, she needs answers quick.

5 stars for women empowerment!!

Ellie is a strong woman who decides to go undercover for her latest reporter assignment. However, she didn't count on just how irresistible her brother's best friend and co-CEO of the company would be.

Ellie and Jack have been friends for years. To be honest - Ellie has totally crushed on Jack in the past. So when these two work together on this undercover assignment - sparks fly.

Ellie is a strong female character with strong women themes. Jack is so scrumptiously d

This book was perfection. First of all, it was co-written by one of my favorite authors, Lili Valente and narrated by my all time fave narrators, Sebastian York and Andy Ardnt. I've never written anything by Sylvia Pierce but I sure am planning on changing that. Like a Boss had everything I love in a contemporary romance, it had chemistry, passion, hot, sexy and hilarious characters with chemistry; however this book had so much more. The plot was original and it brought up some very important is ...more
