Hot Property Book Review

I was excited to get to the fourth book in the series, Hot Property (Hot Zone) by Carly Phillips.  Since we talked about all three sisters, I couldn't wait to see who this book was going to talk about.  I read the copy from the library which after looking at Amazon seems to be the out of date version (Hot Property (The Hot Zone) by Carly Phillips) so feel free to check out which ever version you can find.

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.…

John Roper is a client of Hot Zone and also long time friend with the sisters.  He was mentioned in many of the other books and it was great to finally get to know more about him.  He was a sports hero and loved by many for his baseball career.  However, this turned quickly when he has a disasterous World Series.  Many fans are angry and sending hate mail and packages to him.  He is being constantly mentioned on the radio for his bad performance.  In addition, he hurt his arm and needs physical therapy to get back to playing condition.  John is having a horrible time making all of this happen because his family is pulling him down with all of their drama.  He seems to be the glue that holds his family together but it is ripping apart his professional life and Amy steps in to help.  She is the newest face of Hot Zone as the niece of Spenser who recently moved up from Florida.  Amy has to trick John into going away because he can't get the radio, fans and his family to stop making this about them so that he can focus on his own recovery.  He is upset at first but then quickly learns that it might be the best thing that every happened to him.  You have to pick up the book to follow these crazy ups and downs because his family is crazy and nothing they do surprises me.  This might have been my favorite but it is always hard to tell because I always say that when it is the last book that I have read.  I thought it was a great end to a cute series.  I hope that you check it out for yourself and enjoy the whole series as much as I have.
