Blurb

Too big. Too fat.
All his life Eric Sontag has judged himself on his size, believing love and friendship aren't in the cards for someone like him. Tired of being alone and scared of his doctor’s warnings, he enrolls in a nutrition support group, determined to change his life. When a beautiful thin man sits next to him, he can’t believe they have anything in common, but conversation between the two soon proves first impressions aren’t always what they seem.

Drifter. Loner.
Corey DeSantis has always been the scrawny waif; he’s tired of struggling with his art and with life. Scarred by the disappearance and death of his drug-addicted mother, he doesn’t wish for love, believing it will bring him nothing but pain in the end. Now his only hunger in life is his desire to paint…until a health scare and his mentor force him to attend a nutrition class where he meets a man who piques his interest. One drunken kiss later, Eric is all Corey can think about. 

The same, yet different.

An unlikely friendship is born with both men wanting more but afraid to listen to their well-guarded hearts. When Corey receives shocking news leaving him angry and helpless, it’s Eric he turns to, to help see him through, while a surprising career opportunity finds Eric leaning on Corey for advice. One night of explosive passion leads to a second and soon neither man can imagine a life without the other. Life is shaped by the challenges accepted and roads not taken but as Corey and Eric walk the path together, they’ll discover the most beautiful destination of all. Love.

Review

I love Felice Stevens. Her words are real and her characters have flaws that the reader can connect to. Not only easily, but wholeheartedly.  And that is so true with The Shape Of You. 

Eric and Corey are flawed. They both have health issues that force them to meet in a nutrition class. Reading their individual struggles filled my heart and made me ache with them. 

I love stories that are more than love stories. But more than a tragedy. It's a combination in both in which the characters find themselves together in their love as well as separately as they learn to put what they find together into the rest of their lives. 

The strides Eric made to see himself in a better light. The light that everyone saw him in is who he is. Unfortunately he wasn't able to. Until he met someone who forced him to take a step back and change his mind about body image. 

Corey has had it rough. And it only gets harder with time. My heart broke for him so much. I wanted to hold him and make everything okay. 

Felice Stevens is an author I can read every single week. Her books are real and raw and her writing is solid. These characters are flawed but that is what makes them so amazing. And it takes talent to do that. It takes guts to write imperfect characters. 

The Shape Of You takes so many truths and isn't afraid to bring our ugliest selves to light. That is what makes it an amazing book.

 Author Bio

I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, my characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love.

I live in New York City with my husband and two children and hopefully soon a cat of my own. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there is bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.
