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

    Story
    "A little different than what I'm used to"
    What disappointed you about The Hot Box?

    I love explicit romance stories so it isn't the explicitness that bothered me, but this was culturally different. The main character's view of her sexuality and it's use with men, what she wanted to hear from them just wasn't sexy to me. I'm sure it is a fine book for those to whom it "speaks" based on all the great reviews.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Zane again?

    No.


    What didn???t you like about Simi Howe, and Krystal King???s performance?

    I only listened to the first half hour or so but the performance was well done.


    What character would you cut from The Hot Box?

    Didn't listen to enough of the book to comment on this.


    Any additional comments?

    My comments come from only a half hour listen, which of course isn't giving the story the a fair shake.

    "I wish I could get the refund for this one"

    Not sexy or steamy at all. It could serve better as a social study case than exotic novel. Very trashy indeed.

    "OK"

    The sex scenes made me cringe - the narrators voice (Lydia) was too old for the youthful character - and a bit vulgar.... but if the narrator voice was more youthful it might have been easier to hear... something horribly wrong wi hearing someone who sounds like my great aunt talk like that. I was more interested in the non sexual content in this story... In fact, could have done w/o the sex entirely just b/c it wasnt interesting at all... just seemed like filler. This book is too expensive for the quality of the read.

    "Trash talk!"

    A terrible waste of a credit. Don't bother with this pittiful effort - not the least tantalizing.
