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.

    "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!!

    "OMG"

    I started to read this book and on paper back and never finished it because I lost it. I really wanted to hear the ending but couldn't remember the title. I even went as far as search what I remembered about the characters to find it. And the search was worth it. This book is sexy, exciting, honest and provokes moral contemplation. What I love most was the author explains who each character was as well as incorporated daily struggles people face in this world . This book is impressive, because I have herd of Ms Zane, but only in a freaky sense. But this book has opened me up to who she is; the inspiration she is. I will now and forever be a lover of her work, and will make it my business to read her stories. Her beautiful, sad, loving, erotic, and risky writing will guide my young mind to a different way if seeing the world. I encourage you to explore her work, and allow her to take you on a passion infused adventure.

    "Great Storyline"

    I definitely enjoy a book with a great unexpected twist!!! I felt the story was really good, a book I would recommend in paperback! My only issue was the voices of the audiobook, if both characters were to be in their late twenties you couldn't tell because they sounded as if they were in their mid forties! Especially the way Lidia would yell out "REAL TALK" as if she were announcing something, in a way I could hear my mother saying it when she's trying to be hip to the lingo! Unfortunately listening to a book is more feasible for me otherwise I would have returned it and downloaded a copy to my Kindle.

    "Great job"

    I love the way. Zane keeps the reader guessing the whole time how things will turn out between both girls Lydia and Malena . The sexual overtures and the suspense was great. This book was definitely a page-turner.

    "Least Favorite So Far of Zane Novels"

    Let me START with how tired I grew of the character Lydia's awkward exclamations of the phrase "real talk!" OMG.
    Secondly, her storyline was quite boring until the end.
    There was also a lot of build up, with an abrupt ending... aka five-year "fast forward."
    The book was just OK. I had to finish because I started it and had used a credit, but it was simply a pass-time.
    Best part was the ending. I was happy with the outcomes of the characters, but that's about it. 55+ chapters to get there was a bit much. lol
    It's NOT a terrible book, just a bit mediocre.
