Synopsis from Goodreads
An Inside Out Novella in Mark's POV

While Chris and Sara have traveled to Paris to avoid the chaos of press and police after the tragic night we’d shared, I have stayed to face the reality of what has happened. But there is no peace to be found in facing the truth, and no truth to be found in the confessions that have been made and retracted. I am a Master, all about control, and yet right now, facing great tragedy, I feel as if I have none. With my club and my relationships of the past in the spotlight, I find sanctuary in the one place I’ve promised I will never be again, but cannot seem to resist. Her arms.

***Mark and Crystal's story begins in the novella Master Undone.

     My Hunger is the parallel story to His Secrets. In His Secrets, we get to see things from Chris's POV. In My Hunger, we get to see things from Mark's perspective while Chris is in Paris. Mark has a lot on his plate in this book. He is dealing with everything that he has discovered about Rebecca and what has happened to her. He is being investigated and the investigation will put his club in danger. On top of that, he is trying to cope with his mother in the hospital. She has cancer and he doesn't know what to do. Everything is out of control and he never lets anything get out of control.

     Mark has always been an interesting character in the Inside Out series. He is quite full of himself, but he is a really strong character. But with everything going on, we see Mark actually vulnerable and not himself. His assistant, Crystal, is not helping him though. He has been with her and it is driving him nuts. She is not a submissive woman and he doesn't go for her type. But if there is anything he will control, it is her. I did like the connection between them. They had an understanding of each other. Whenever Mark needed something, Crystal had his back. She is clearly a strong woman and is able to take Mark on.

     Mark definitely feels things are falling apart. I love how even when things seem like they won't go smoothly, he will find a way. He knows things are going to get worse if he doesn't fight back. I love how tough Mark is. He is definitely a man that doesn't break easily. It is great getting into his head. Like I said, Mark is an interesting character. He can come off cold and a bit of a pompous ass, but seeing things through his eyes puts things in perspective.

     I am curious about what Jones will do about Crystal and Mark. Can Mark go for a strong woman who into the lifestyle? Not to mention Jones is throwing a bit of curveball about Rebecca. You are killing me, woman! But I love it. I know this is set to be a show on Starz and I can't wait for it. This is one romantic suspense that will look amazing on TV.

     This is a great addition to the series. It is impossible not to love it. It is great getting back into this world again and diving deeper into this story. The characters are so well put together and complex. I already have No In Between safely tucked away in my ereader already. Thank you Jones for these amazing novellas. You really shouldn't miss these. They are just as important to the story as the main books. Highly recommended.
