Editoral Review

My Hunger by Lisa Renee Jones is a sensual and captivating contemporary romance novel that was first published on July 7, 2014. As an accomplished author of numerous bestsellers, including the Inside Out series and the Tall, Dark, and Deadly series, Jones has won the hearts of readers across the globe with her alluring and suspenseful stories – and My Hunger is no exception.

The novel is captivatingly romantic, and while it is certainly not for everyone, it will surely appeal to fans of the genre who are looking for a thrilling, steamy, and emotionally charged story. With themes of lust, passion, family drama, and betrayal, My Hunger is a tale that touches upon the complexities of relationships and the hunger that can drive us all.

Set against the backdrop of the affluent world of business, the story follows the tumultuous relationship between billionaire businessman Ryan Parker and his ambitious protg Mia Monroe. As they struggle to navigate their love and professional lives, the stakes are raised even higher when an unexpected event threatens to destroy everything they’ve worked for.

Jones masterfully weaves together complex characters with rich, indulgent plot lines in a manner that never fails to captivate the reader. The novel is brimming with passion, intrigue, and emotional turmoil, making for a thrilling and wholly satisfying read.

Despite its obvious strengths, My Hunger is not entirely without flaws. Jones occasionally seems to prioritize plot over character development, leading to some moments where the characters feel somewhat two-dimensional.

That being said, this is a minor quibble in an otherwise outstanding book. Jones’s writing is elegant and seductive, with a pacing that keeps the reader hooked from the very first page.

The plot structure is skillfully crafted, allowing moments of drama and suspense to build organically while also ensuring the romantic moments are never undercut by gratuitous action. Overall, I would highly recommend My Hunger to fans of contemporary romance novels.

It’s an emotionally charged, seductive, and undeniably captivating story told by a skilled and accomplished author. Its themes of passion, intrigue, and family drama resonate deeply, making for an unforgettable reading experience that will leave you hungry for more.

On a scale of 1-5, I’d rate this book a solid 4.5 – a must-read for fans of the genre.
