The Shape of You by Felice Stevens Release Blitz

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 leans on, 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.

This is a really fabulous book – and at the end I found I was unexpectedly tearful. Ms. Stevens has a wonderful way of introducing characters into the reader's mind, and then giving plenty of opportunity for him/her to empathise, envy, and want everything to work for the pair. In this case, such a powerful message was included with the romance, that it should have everyone thinking a little more about the assumptions they make and the impact of their thoughtlessness.

But at its heart is a love story which makes the most delicious progress and ends in a truly magnificent way. Get a copy, read it, and understand what I'm trying to convey!

I love Felice Stevens’ books, they give me the feels. This book didn't disappoint. Corey and Eric each have their own issues with food. When they team up to work on a class project together, they become friends and then more. These guys both have emotional baggage and I liked seeing both sides to these guys. Most people know about the harassment/bullying people get when people are overweight, but people tend to forget the other end of the spectrum. I actually said something to a "skinny" person and I wasn't even being negative, but they said, "I hate being this skinny and I wish I COULD gain weight." Ever since that comment, I try to think of both sides of things and this book was great showing the struggles of each. Very emotional at times and I just fell in love with Corey and Eric and felt the connection from the start and it never stopped. Beautiful story.

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.
