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
Reviewer: Tammi
Rating: 5 Groupie StarsAs soon as I read the blurb I knew had to read this book. A different POV on very relevant topic. Body issues we all have them but I honestly never think of a man having them.
This book deals with both sides of the weight issue spectrum. Corey had trouble  gaining weight where Eric was overweight. But those weren’t their only problems both had childhoods that affected their relationship food and both had serious self esteem issues. While learning to deal with these problems a beautiful friendship and love story blossomed. They weren’t just different body shapes, their outlook on love, life and even sex differed.  They prove opposites attract!!! Yet how different they seemed deep inside they wanted the same thing acceptance. Don’t we all!!
This is my first book by this author and will definitely be looking for more!
 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.
