Antonella “Nell” Bennett is having the worst day of her life.
Long-term boyfriend broke up with her? Check.
Drove through the pouring rain to a small roadside restaurant, only to be told all the tables were reserved for “Couples Night”? Check.
Definitely no longer one half of a couple? Check.
So maybe she got a little heated with the restaurant’s host, and maybe her voice carried a bit as she lamented—loudly—that she’s never anyone’s “plus-one.” At least an attractive stranger comes to her rescue, inviting her to be seated with him, and when it turns out to be one of the best nights she’s had in a while, even ending in an innocent kiss that becomes anything but? Check please.
Fast forward a week, and Nell’s rant has gone viral. Sure, her tiny hometown of Arbor Bay is collectively buzzing over their latest Internet celebrity, but Nell’s no stranger to attention. Drama seems to follow her whether she likes it or not.
But even she never expected to show up to work only to discover her brand-new boss is a very familiar face…

Like a Boss is a fun book about chance meetings, unexpected attraction, and denial. Nell's character has a sunny personality (when she's not ranting as unsuspecting restaurant hosts) that carries over to all aspects of her life, even after her tirade goes viral. She's definitely a glass-half-full kind of gal. Quinn, on the other hand, is a tad grumpy and pessimistic. He may have helped a random woman at a restaurant, but he wasn't looking for romance. He is very much a stickler for not dating co-workers even when all the laws of attraction are in place.
Quinn was not the best hero I've read. He was way too wishy-washy, and his signals were so mixed. There were so many scenes I cringed at because of his actions and how they affected Nell. Once he pulled his head out of you-know-where, he was great, but it took too long to get there. Nell was a great heroine with a high level of patience, whether pertaining to her job or her relationships. I could see myself being her friend. She has a large, loving family that stands behind her and fully supports and defends her. Nell and Quinn were cute together and I wished Quinn wouldn't have been so rigid.
I still really enjoyed Like a Boss, the characters, and the impending romance. The shenanigans Nell drags Quinn into allow us to see a very different side of him. He also gets to see what small town life can be like. I come from a small town just outside of Flint, Michigan and I can tell you that everyone knows everything and sometimes you have to get creative to solve problems. I enjoyed the town of Arbor Bay and hope we get to see more Accidentally Viral books.
I was provided a copy of this book to read.
