Publisher's Summary

The chemistry between these three men is undeniable, but is it enough to save Manhattan?
Imagine a world without hunger.
In 1960, a superfood was invented that made starvation a thing of the past. Manna, the cheaply manufactured staple food, is now as ubiquitous as salt in the world's cupboards, pantries and larders.
Nelson Oliver knows plenty about manna. He's a food scientist–according to his diploma, that is. Lately, he's been running the register at the local video rental dive to scrape together the cash for his outrageously priced migraine medication.
In a job fair gone bad, Nelson hooks up with copywriter Javier and his computer-geek pal Tim, who whisks them away from the worst of the fiasco in his repurposed moving truck. At least, Nelson thinks those two are acquainted, but they're acting so evasive about it, he's not sure how they know each other, exactly. Javier is impervious to Nelson's flirting, and Tim's name could appear in the dictionary under the entry for "awkward." And with a riot raging through Manhattan and yet another headache coming on, it doesn't seem like Nelson will get an answer anytime soon.
One thing's for sure, the tension between the three of them is thick enough to cut with a knife...even one of those dull plastic dealies that come in the package with Mannariffic EZ-Mealz.
The Starving Years is a must-read for fans of dystopian romance looking for scorching M/M/M chemistry in a fast-paced, page-turning adventure.

Another Awesome Book By Jordan Castillo Price

I do not want to spoil anything so I will not go into any details. I loved this book when I read it and the audiobook is just as awesome. Jordan Castillo Price and Gomez Pugh make a great team. As one expects from a JCP novel, there are unique characters and interesting situations. It has a Soylent Green feel to it but as with all her novels there is a nice dash of romance and humor. I have been waiting for this release for some time and am not disappointed.

Very Nice Surprise

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend this audiobook to a friend. This book is a perfect example of people with different personalities and backgrounds working together. Throw in love, jealousy, mistrust, adventure, horror, humor, a conspiracy and of course, sex, and you get The Starving Years.

Who was your favorite character and why?

In the beginning I didn't like any of the characters but the more that I learned about them, the more I wanted to learn about them. I found myself liking all of the characters by the end, even if at times I found them annoying and very frustrating.

Which character – as performed by Gomez Pugh – was your favorite?

I am a major Gomez Pugh fan so I enjoyed all of the characters but I think that my favorite was Javier and his sexy accent.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I actually did listen to this book in one sitting or rather in one day. I listened while commuting to and from work and while I was working.
