About this ebook

He'll push all her boundaries and make her realize rules are made to be broken.


Cool, collected Sophie Jordan loves her daily routine running her family's top sports management agency, as long as she gets to stay behind the scenes. But with big sister on maternity leave and little sis on her honeymoon, she's forced to step up to the plate. And a recent media crisis surrounding the disappearance of superagent Spenser Atkins is not going to make the job any easier.


Enter star quarterback and notorious bad boy Riley Nash who, for reasons of his own, needs to track down Atkins. Up until now, Sophie has kept a strict no-dating-clients policy, but each day with Riley makes her rule near impossible to follow. With her job and her heart on the line, Sophie will need to make the toughest choice of her life!

I love each of the Jordan sisters and was so glad to finally see Sophie find happiness. Each of the girls dealt with the death of their parents when they were children in different ways. Sophie analyzes everything and tries to find the best way to handle life without getting hurt. So much so that she tends to run from anything that doesn't fit in her perceived comfort zone. Riley Nash is just that sort of man. His life is so outside the box, nothing about it fits into Sophie's comfortable existence. However, there is also just something about him that Sophie is drawn to and attracted to in a way she has never been before. I love Riley and Sophie as a couple. Yes they were pretty different, but they worked for me. Riley was much more laid back than Sophie, and she lived more by the rules, but they totally worked as a couple for me. The fact they had smoking hot chemistry and had trouble keeping their hands off each other added to my love, but I really loved they each could be themselves around the other. Hot Item is another winner in the Hot Zone series. I loved this series when I read it when it was originally released and loved it every bit as much with the updates. Ms. Phillips new voice totally shines through with this old favorite series.

I truly enjoyed reading Hot Item, the third book in Carly Phillips’ Hot Zone series, once again. I loved how Sophie Jordan tries to overcome her fears in order to help Riley Nash, quarterback for the NY Giants and client of her uncle. Sophie is the middle sister who has a need for control after the death of their parents. Sophie helps Riley in locating his biological father who has gone missing. As these two spend time together Sophie breaks her rule about not dating athletes as she falls under Riley’s spell. Sophie’s fears cause her to run away from the man who loves her. Now she needs to decide which is more important, control and loneliness or love. This book is not the sexy story as are Phillips’ more recent books, but still has those loveable characters that you want to cheer on, hoping for their happy ending. The characters were well written and authentic. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I genuinely enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Ooh, how I love Carly Phillips' The Hot Zone series! This has quickly become one of my absolute favorite set of books and I was thrilled to be able to dive into this one. Sophie Jordan is the middle of the Jordan sisters and she works with her eldest sister Annabelle and her younger sister, Micki, at The Hot Zone. Since the death of her parents when she was a child, Sophie has always had to be in control of everything in order to feel safe. When the best friend of her Uncle Yank, and a notorious sports agent in his own right goes missing, Sophie teams up with the unlikeliest of people to try to help locate him. Riley Nash is a big time quarterback and also the son of Spencer Atkins, the missing sports agent. All Riley has ever wanted is the respect of his father, but that is something that has been hard to come by. When he learns of his father's disappearance, he doesn't hesitate to team up with the beautiful Sophie to try to find him. The chemistry between Riley and Sophie is instantaneous and the questions become, can they contain their lust and will they be able to locate Spencer before it's too late? This was another fantastic addition to The Hot Zone series and one I simply couldn't put down. Kudos to Carly Phillips for another great read!
