In a single, impulsive act, Susannah Faulconer, the daughter of one of the country's most powerful industrialists, follows her heart and finds herself severed from her family and everything familiar. As a cool San Francisco socialite, she'd known exactly how to behave, but now she's a lone woman in a world of men...and there's no etiquette book in the world that can teach her how to survive.

The men are rebels, determined to take on corporate America with daring and vision, and they aren't going to let her play by good girls' rules. There's Sam, the charismatic visionary, on a rocket-driven ride to glory. And Mitch, the troubled corporate genius with no time for a rich socialite, no matter how beautiful. Together, they will force Susannah into the biggest challenge of her life as she tests her courage -- and her love -- in a bold experiment that will change them all forever.

Come share a glorious, heart-stopping love story, and meet the unforgettable woman called Hot Shot as she discovers a passion so rich, so tender, that she will be utterly and forever transformed.

This was my second read, several years apart. Great history and great characters, but the greatest part is Susan Elizabeth Peters' phenomenal writing skills.The nook is grounded in factual history and fictional characters you care about. Humor, love, tears and sighs. All here for your reading pleasure. Enjoy.

I'm impressed with they way she is able to have such comprehensive character development. Her characters fall in love, and fall out of love all within the course of the novel. This was a good romance, and it had lots of suspense as well.

Disappointing. The only SEP I couldn't make myself finish.

I really enjoyed this book. I am not a romance novel connoisseur. I have thumbed through a few over the years as some of the book covers scream. Without fail, within four or five pages, I want to gag. (Romance addicts are now scrolling to the bottom of this review and clicking "no".) Romance novels just aren't (weren't?) my thing. Then along came Suzie, the heroine of Hot Shot.Author Susan Elizabeth Phillips has done her homework. The plot, yes there is a real plot, evolves around the Silicon Valley in the late `70s and the emergence of the computer and nerd nirvana. The story is fascinating. It is nostalgic - where were you when Elvis died?I read Hot Shot because I was told that I would like it. I was really skeptical. "Give it chance", it was suggested. Five pages in "His voice rose over the roar of the Harley, and his dark, mesmerizing eyes speared through her skin" activated the gag reflex."Give it a chance" echoed in my mind. I did and I am glad.

This is one of SEP's earlier books (published 1991) and her writing style has really changed (for the better) since then. There was little evidence of her typical humor that I loved in books like It Had to Be You and Match Me If You Can. The story (which felt more like a saga covering almost 500 pages) focuses around Susannah Faulconer's life from a small child through her rise in the corporate world and the computer industry. But there was too much detail on the emerging computer industry and not enough romance. The characters were complex and interesting but the romance felt tacked on. Not my favorite SEP. (Grade: C+)

Not my favorite Susan Elizabeth Phillips book, but still a good read. Revolves around the upstart of personal computers and is very informative with how PCs really became popular with people at home, but was lacking in the romance department. Phillips is always a go to author for me, but this one was a tad disappointing.
