Book 3, Hot Zone

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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! *This book previously released in 2004. Updataed for content and modernized

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 03, 2006 – Saving her best for last, Phillips wraps up her jocular Hot Zone trilogy with Sophie, middle sister of the Jordan clan and co-owner of the prestigious Manhattan-based sports management agency (and family business) the Hot Zone. After a gossip columnist reveals him as gay, big-time sports agent Spencer Atkins, whose PR firm recently merged with the Hot Zone, goes MIA just three weeks before the pro football draft. With her entire family on leave (big sister Annabelle on maternity, little sister Michelle on her honeymoon and Uncle Yank Morgan after eloping with his assistant Lola), Sophie must deal with the crisis on her own. Enter star quarterback Riley Nash, Uncle Yank's client and Spencer's son from a failed marriage. Riley wants his biological father to keep their familial ties under wraps, and Sophie wants to ensure they don't lose any of Spencer's clients. Together, they track Spencer to Florida, while Sophie tries to suppress her attraction to "jock nightmare" Riley and things go haywire back at the agency giving a Hot Zone adversary the upper hand. Followers of this smart series will slip right into this final book, but newbies might want to check out the earlier two first.

Another great one!!!

Hot Item is book 3 in the Hot Zone series and it's Sophie's turn at Uncle Yank's match making schemes! Have I mentioned I love all these characters? I want to be apart of them!
Sophie is cool, calm, under control and doesn't date clients. But when Riley becomes a major part of her world? Those rules of hers fly out the window. There's no denying these two had chemistry for dayyysssss! They were burning up the pages and I just couldn't put the book down. I loved the aspect that Riley's daughter added to the story. Sophie had to deal with not only Riley as an alpha man and sports star, but as a dad too! That added a whole different element to their story! But I loved how Sophie was still her same, take charge personality!
As per usual, Carly Phillips has written another story that made me laugh, swoon, and fall in love!

Happy reading!!!!

Hot hot hot

This is the third book in Carly Phillips Hot Zone Series, Sophie Jordan is the middle sister and she end up working along side Riley Nash a QB and client of her uncles but there's some secrets coming out that they both are trying to keep quiet and contained. But they also have a lot of chemistry but they are also totally different. One of the things I love about Carly Phillips books is that you get to read about all of the other characters from previous books but if you haven't read them you aren't lost. Plus there are new character like the crazy aunts. I recommend to read this book or reread this one since it is a rerelease. There is one more book in this 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.
