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.
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.

The shape of you
I bought this bkz I love, love, loved the cover and the blurb sounded good. Unfortunately, I felt it just didn’t measure up. I found the MCs hot but whiny, the plot over done with too many unnecessary side trails (Cory’s mother, Eric’s uncle) and the actual writing awkward and overdone. I skimmed the last 1/3 bkz by then I just didn’t care anymore.
It was such a beautiful story, addressing real life issues and pains. I loved every page!!!! Thank you for writing such an amazing book! Definitely a must read!!!
"The Shape of You" defines attitudes, ultimatums...
What defines YOU? In your own consciousness! how do YOU define yourself? In others, standing aside you, how do they define YOU? Felice Stevens writes about Eric and Corey, two young men attending an initial weight program, since they'd sat next to each other, they became each other's mutual support pairing; complete opposites, their friendship shares their lonely solitude, low self esteem, progressing into a relationship of a strong full-filling bond. A wonderful pair to follow in their initial instincts of each other, a fear of acceptance - developing into a mutual dependence supporting each other's strength.
