This was my first Carly Phillips book, but not my last. The cover was what caught my attention, along with the baseball theme of the book. After I bought the book, I realized it’s part of a series. The Hot Zone series. Now, I haven’t read any of those books, but I found that I didn’t need to in order to follow the story line. Ms. Phillips did a wonderful job of introducing the characters from her other books so anyone who did as I did, knew who was who.
John Roper was a handsome and very likable character. Amy was funny and I could so relate about having to deal with a wacky family. This was a great story filled with interesting characters and it made me laugh. I’m looking forward to reading more books from Ms. Phillips.

Just one short season ago, major league center fielder John Roper had it all: the looks—and personal life—of a sports hero and the public's adoration. But this hot property's lucky streak has run out. After a World Series disaster, fans diss him, shock jocks mock him and his dysfunctional family hassles him for money he really can't spare. Now it's up to him, and Hot Zone publicist Amy Stone, to get his life back on track.
Amy finds it's easier said than done. What with the constant intrusions of his nutty family, a crazed fan playing stalker, and Roper's refusal to put his own needs first, she's starting to think that life in the fast lane isn't all it's cracked up to be. But when the two retreat to a secluded lodge, the sexy center fielder throws Amy a curveball—one she never saw coming...
