Genre: Contemporary Romance, General Contemporary Romance

RT Rating

Sports agency co-owner and publicist Sophie Jordan doesn't work well with difficult jocks. She leaves the athletes with attitude to her two sisters and cleverly handles business behind the scenes. But when her sisters are away, she's left to deal with the surprise disappearance of her company's best agent, as well as the cocky jock looking for him.

Top NFL quarterback Riley Nash has some very personal reasons for needing to get in touch with the missing sports agent. Since Sophie seems to be the only one on the older man's trail, he decides to cement himself to her side until the agent materializes. The only problem
is that the cool and always-in-control Sophie has a way of making him hot
and reckless -- and he wants to inspire that same reaction in her.

Fans of the previous two books will
be delighted by the third novel in the Hot Zone trilogy. Readers new to the series are given plenty of information early on, so catching up on past action and storylines is not difficult. Phillips' characters are amusing. At times, their thoughts, feelings and motivations are so clearly stated that there's little opportunity for nuance, but the novel's pace is fast and light, making it a fun summer read. (Jun., 384 pp., $7.99)
