"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.

I love Zane! I really liked the story itself. I was able to follow the transformation of the main character and the complications made it very interesting. I also enjoyed the humor!
No other book comes to mind that I have read so far.
I liked the way they brought the characters to life.
Yoseph. I kept wondering why he was in his situation.
A must read (or listen)! I could not stop listening... I really enjoyed the book.
PLEASE Add MORE Zane books to Audible.com!!!!
I have been on the fence for many years when it comes to Zane novels but this one has taken me over the negative edge of no return. I would have to say no, I will not buy another book by Zane anytime in the near future.
Lydia's entire character, both personality wise and narratively speaking, were a complete disappointment to me. REAL TALK. She has absolutely no self respect and only thinks of herself and what she can get from others. For her to be in her 30's, she is very immature and that is so sad. And the narrators voice just did not match the person. Simi Howe has a mature voice that does not fit Lydia's character at all.
NO. It wasn't a very good book, so I wouldn't even considering wasting another 2 hours of my life seeing it as a movie.
The turn of events was great!
Lydia because she is no hold bar.
The narrators were exciting and peaked my interests.
Tag you're it
I could relate, being that I am a woman from a small town in NC
attitude and something else I can't think of right now.
It most definitely kept me laugh with some shock value.
i know exactly how Lidia felt. I always felt like i didn't belong to my small town and a broken heart and betrayal was the only thing that forced me to leave.
I've been a long time fan of Zane's printed books, so I was excited to learn that her books were offerred on Audible. Narration just brings a whole other delicious layer to books, so I couldn't wait to listen to the Hot Box, and then I was like, 'hmm, ok, this is super typical'. I'd listened to another Zane book and enjoyed it immensely. Maybe it was the storyline of this one, or perhaps the characters themselves that just didn't do it for me. After reading the reviews for this book before I bought it I was expecting to be blown away by the narrator and her portrayal of Lydia, but I wasn't sure what all the hype about this character was for. In fact, she was onen of the main reasons I was a little annoyed by the book and was ready for it to just be over. the biggest reason to purchase this book would be, it is quite funny in some areas--typical Zane style, and has an interesting but all too common plot twist; however, I would not use a credit for this one, just wait for a deeply discounted sale period.
I have always been a Zane fan, and this was my first audible book listening really brought the characters to life, looking for next Zane audible now
If you just want a quick read/listen, it's okay.
The dry spots were just dry. A lot of the 'drama' in this story was more annoying than exciting.
Can't give it away.
It was okay.
The narrator did a great job switching between characters making the listening experience better.
This story was definitely a easy listen. I wanted to know what would happen next...
Definitely the main character
The only thing I wish was different about the story was that it had a little more edge.
Two narrators. Made listening more enjoyable.
Yosef, I always root for the underdog, he was the purest character in the book. I was team Milena until she cheated with Jacour.
I think they did a great job bringing the characters to life, especially Lydia's character.
Interested, intrigued, shocked, then that Awww moment at the end.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
