About the Author
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 are bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.

Eric and Corey are Perfect!! Felice Stevens with The Shape of You has written yet another emotionally-charged and heart warming story about two men finding their way to their own form of happily ever after. I absolutely loved Eric and Corey's story. These two men each were struggling with an issue that many of us struggle with each and every day... our attitude towards food. Felice crafted a story that showed that just because someone may look perfect does not mean that their life is perfect or that they are happy, and that just because someone may not look how we think they should look on the outside does not mean that they do not have a heart of gold on the inside. Eric and Corey were perfect for each other. They brought out the best in each other.
