The Hot Box by Zane
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Zane has always been one of my favorite authors and this book definitely shows why.
The two main characters are Lydia and Milena, two best friends from a small town. Despite living in the small town, Lydia has big dreams and hopes to one day make it big in New York City or Hollywood. For the time being, she's stuck working part-time as a cashier at Food Lion and living with her safe but boring boyfriend Glenn. To spice things up a bit, she's also been sleeping with Glenn's best friend Phil for years.
Milena had planned to have the perfect life. She was going to marry Jacour, a hot shot baseball player. However, she learned that he slept with some strippers at his bachelor party so she called off the wedding and went into seclusion, swearing herself off from men. That is until Jacour comes back into town and she has to find a guy to pretend to be her boyfriend, so Jacour doesn't think she needs him. Enter Yosef, a man she literally finds in the street.
As always, Zane creates colorful characters that you can relate to and a spicy, steamy plot that makes you want to keep reading. I enjoyed the little twists at the ending, especially Milena's. A definite must-read.
