|Plot Summary of The Heat Seekers|
Downtown, May 2003, 14.00, 301 pp.
In Washington DC, best friends Tempest and Janessa seek the respective brother who will be "the one". Both are tired of the losers they have collected over time. Dvonte and Geren are best buds, but their attitude towards women differ, as the former seeks any female in his bed while the latter is tired of the scene.
The two couples meet while doing the club scene and just like out of literature they seem to hit it off instantly with Geren and social worker Tempest as one duet, and Dvonte with Janessa as the other. While the first couple forge an adult relationship and tries to learn much about the other, the other duet dive into a sexual coupling in which the bed is the only meeting room. Will both twosomes make it or will the one that is 100% sex fail and take down through long time loyalties the more mature pairing?
This insightful look at young love works because Zane draws realistic characters who one moment gain reader empathy and in the next segue disdain for their cynicism about other players. The warm story line enables the audience to compare the two couples as the foursome exchange often-witty dialogue and as twosomes heated sex. However, beyond an entertaining close look at the twenty something crowd, the author never loses sight of the underlying theme that adults must act responsible and accountable to themselves and others.
