What 25-year-old woman would not like to be surrounded by athletes? Amy Stone cannot get over the scenery at her cousin Riley’s wedding. His lovely bride Sophie and her sisters seem unfazed, but that is because they are publicists for Hot Zone, a publicity firm for sports superstars.
Amy is ready for her first assignment at Hot Zone. Breaking away from her family and their penchant for mischief was difficult, but she finally feels like she can have a normal life. Working for a retirement community in Florida is not where a single woman should be, so she pulled up stakes and headed for New York City. When a handsome man offers to get her a drink during the reception, Amy is enjoying the attention and hopes that it might mean a date down the road.
John Roper cannot believe his luck. It has gone from bad to worse lately. Now, at a wedding, the fates continue to conspire against him. He meets a sweet young thing, who doesn’t even know who he is, and he screws up any chance he has with her. All because he brought a date to the wedding – a date who thought he was at her beck and call.
When circumstances force Amy and John to work together, the tension runs high, but not as high as the lingering attraction. John needs her help to stay on track with his rehab but his high-maintenance family is driving him insane. He hopes Amy’s solution will do the trick because if he can’t get back on the baseball field soon, his career will be over. To make matters worse, the press is always on his back and it seems like people are following him all over the city. What can Amy do to bring the madness under control?
Author Carly Phillips has another winning book in the Hot Zone series. Hot Property has plenty to tempt readers besides tight uniforms and taut muscles. Amy and John are kindred spirits, with similar issues and needs. Bringing the two of them together will take patience and understanding.
