The Hot Box: A Novel (Paperback)
"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 merely players in their game.
Milena lives a sheltered and dismal existence, and she hasn’t 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. Reading has never been this hot because, once again, Zane is taking you outside the box.
