Publisher's Summary

"Hot Box" is a baseball drill that can be played with three or more players and two to four bases. The players take turns being fielders and runners, ultimately trying to tag the rest of the players out. In The Hot Box, best friends Milena and Lydia are playing the game with Jacour, Yosef, Glenn, and Phil. The only problem: the men do not realize that they are playing.

Milena lives a sheltered and dismal existence and has not allowed a man to touch her body in eight years...until now. Lydia dreams of getting away from small-town America but, until she can make that happen, she is prepared to do whatever it takes to continue to have her bills paid...on time. Good sex always does the trick.

Two women. Four men. Two love triangles. Listening has never been this hot because, once again, Zane is taking you outside the box.

What the Critics Say

"Arguably not since the emergence of Nancy Friday has American letters produced a purveyor of erotica with such mass-market appeal". (The New York Times)

    "Sizzling Hot"

    This one of those books you have to go back.... because you can't believe you heard what was just said. I've never been a Zane fan...but I am now. Loved it.

    "Loved the Hot Box!"

    I really enjoyed this book. The characters were all very interesting, particularly Lydia. She is raw and doesn't care who knows it. Lydia's narrator has the perfect voice for her character. I laughed so much. This was even better than A Total Eclipse of the Heart! I have always enjoyed Zane's books. A reading must for Zane fans!!

    "A MUST LISTEN"

    I loved this book. Like the listener reviewed before me, I had to go back too because I could not believe what I'd just heard. Zane is a great author. Please please please add more of her books to this site please.

    "Great Book"

    This book is for open minded people who are familar with Erotica or her work. This is not the traditional Harlequin Romance, this is straight up Erotica done in a refreshing and comical way.

    Finally, I am introduced to Zane by audible.com. I have for years, years wanted to read her books, but I could never find the time. The writer's story in itself is amazing, i.e. becoming a best selling author later in her life.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story is raw, honest and "realtalk" for adults. The candor and exspite language of the book is shocking but so over the top
    is comedical at times, which is what I think the author wants. You can't help but to be laugh at Lydia's complete inhibition in all areas of life. Lydia looks at life and her sexuality
    which resembles "traditional male sexuality. I would call Lydia a Rakehell or Libertine. I loved Malena and empathized with her on several levels.

    What did you love best about The Hot Box?

    I loved the story and how it causes us to realize that what we may think is good for us may not be.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Lidia's character. She is funny and very real/


    What about Simi Howe and Krystal King ’s performance did you like?

    Their performances were great. I would have preferred to have an actual male voice to do the male parts but they gave a great effort.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.
