Ryan Hathaway has always harbored a deep crush on his lifelong friend, Jessie Acosta. Growing up together and attending the same elite prep school, Ryan watched as Jessie’s world came crashing down when her family’s fortune was stolen during the Black Crescent debacle fifteen years ago--the CEO of Black Crescent embezzled millions of dollars from clients and hasn’t been seen since. Ryan, however, has never forgotten the pain Jessie endured during that time, and how she ran to the arms of another young man, without glancing his way even though he’d always been her best friend. Now, a successful businessman himself, Ryan is in the running to become the new CEO of Black Crescent, and suddenly, Jessie Acosta is back in his life. . .
Jessie Acosta is floored when she shows up at her ten-year high school reunion and sees Ryan for the first time in years. He’s no longer the boy next door, but now an assured and sexy man. Taking a break from her iffy relationship, Jessie wants nothing more than to explore the spark that started on the dance floor at the reunion. Ryan whisks her away on a helicopter to the Hampton for a swanky house party, and their passion is too much to be denied. Their entire weekend is spent in carnal bliss, until Jessie finds out Ryan may run the company that ruined her family’s life and reputation in their hometown.
It’s taken fifteen years for Ryan to get Jessie to take him seriously, but the opportunity to become eth next CEO of Black Crescent is too high to let pass him by. . . Jessie has always trusted Ryan, but this new job could be their undoing. . .
The third book in Harlequin Desire’s latest continuity series,Dynasties: Seven Sins, INSATIABLE HUNGER by Yahrah St. John is a tempting friends-to-lovers romance.

Even with Ryan’s potential job at Black Crescent and Jessie’s on-again-off-again almost-fiance, they are a great couple, with tantalizing chemistry from the start. While there’s little conflict and quite a bit of focus paid to how thin and trim everyone is, this quick and sexy romance set amongst America’s wealthy elite is an easy way to spend an afternoon.
