Retro Review: Hotline by Quinn Anderson


Zack never intended to become a phone sex operator, but with half a college degree and a smart mouth, his options were limited. It helps that he has a knack for thinking on his feet and a willingness to roll with whatever his clients throw at him. Sure, he gets his fair share of creeps and unconventional requests, but it pays the bills, and he’s in no danger of breaking his one rule: never fall for a client.

Until a man named “John” starts calling, and Zack finds himself interested in more than a paycheck. It’s not just that John has money, or that his rumbling baritone drives Zack wild. He’s everything Zack isn’t: educated, poised, and in total control of his life.

A twist of fate brings them face-to-face, and now that they’ve seen each other—and spent an unforgettable night together—they can’t go back to the way things were. A sex worker and a trust fund brat . . . It’s like Romeo and Juliet, but with less stabbing and slightly fewer dick jokes. Hopefully they can pull off a more successful ending.

4 Stars

Zack is a not so great Phone Sex Operator (PSO). He's barely making a living at it, until he lands a regular client, John. An accidental meeting brings Zack and John face to face. Will the chemistry they have over the phone be just as strong in person and is it worth it for Zack to jeopardize his job?

I did this backwards, I read book two in the series, Action, and absolutely loved it, so I went right out and bought book one, and I wasn't disappointed. This was a fun and sexy read. I wasn't so sure about John at first, it took a while for me to warm up to him. He kind of rubbed me the wrong way, but I absolutely adored Zack. He was sweet and funny and oh my god, his interactions with his dog Ziggy were absolutely adorable!!

This was a well-written story that was paced well. The characters were likable and had good chemistry, and that definitely showed once they got between the sheets, in real life and not through phone sex. In fact, I learned from this story that I don't particularly care for phone sex or role playing. Haha While I liked the story, my problem with it was the big conflict at the end. What John did and the explanation for why he did it made no sense. Still, this was an enjoyable story, although I loved book two much more, and very recommendable!
