There were moments in the book where I wanted two boyfriends in my life too. There were also moments where I understood why women only had one in their life because they're a bunch of babies. This story made me have different emotions, and I loved them. I laughed, cried, felt angry, and mostly I felt happy and loved.
Hungry for Love by Maya Sacher
Starts out with Elizabeth Evans and she's watching the flags and knows they symbolize hope and faith.
Her husband Jessie Klein she's visiting at the intensive brain facility. Was such a nonesense accident that left him this way.
She continues to perform dental procedures at her dad's dental practice.
She lost her husband but his body was still living...helped her when she baked cookies.
They had met at a book signing and she noticed his tat on his neck. He knew his fashion and designers.
Story goes back even further to their upbringings, their meeting and their dating.
Loved hearing of the snow leopards and the things the zoo did for their comfort.
Aiden takes her out of her comfort zone and she likes that he pays attention to her. Her sister finds out and is happy she has moved on because Jessie is not there. He wants her to bond with his daughter.
The living mess starts when Jessie wakes up and as she sublet their place he will go live with her and Aiden and the daughter
What struck me at this point is the men aren't having an argument about who gets her for sex and what nights but it riles her as they can't show affection in any form towards one another while the other is in the room.
She's at a crossroads also in her job and wants something different and confronts her father. Her sister is also mixed up in everything....
Lots of twists and turns and unpredictable situations.
Didn't see the ending at all the way it comes out, whoa!
I received this review book from Net Galley and this is my honest opinion.
With her beloved husband in a coma for nearly two years, is it really such a horrible thing for Elizabeth to impulsively enter into a relationship with another man?
This is a premise that kicks off the plot of Hungry for Love, raising interesting questions before its characters and readers alike, because you can't help but ponder the situation as you read, trying to decide what's right and wrong and wondering to see what happens next.
Hungry for Love succeeds in making its lead character feel very human and someone we can sympathize with. In fact, the characters in general come across as realistic and are portrayed with care, which is really something that makes or breaks a book like this, and I loved the way it was done here.
There were problems, there was drama, but it was all dosed just right, making it intense and interesting without overdoing it. There are no real villains here, just people. And luckily the author knows that just by letting people be people, you'll get all the conflict you need to build an interesting story.
I loved the flashbacks detailing how Elizabeth and Jesse fell in love, and I loved all the parts with the therapist, and the way Elizabeth's family was depicted. I also liked the unpredictable messiness of Elizabeth's relationship with her sister.
Oh and I actually found Aidan unappealing (with his smoking, and his sulking, and the way he always seemed to devour food, and so on…) He was really well written, though, and I suppose I get why Elizabeth liked the change that he brought. Jesse, on the other hand, I really liked, and I wish we got more scenes with him (before and after coma!) because my interest always spiked when he was in the scene.
I won't comment my thoughts on the ending to avoid spoiling it, but I'll say that the author did a good job of making it impossible to guess how things turn out, keeping me interested throughout the book.
And the best part - while Hungry for Love is a story about a love triangle on its surface, in the end it's really a book about a woman finding her inner peace and gathering courage to face her personal demons. The unusual love triangle is just an interesting catalyst propelling Elizabeth toward a new level of maturity. This, I think, is what ultimately makes Hungry for Love a satisfying and inspiring read.
