I do love reading about characters who are different or have uncommon challenges in the m/m world. So this was a plus. I was thrilled by the way LJ Miles voiced Roberts reasons and anxieties around eating and food. The entire time I was reading I worried readers won't give this one a chance or judge Robert or worse Pete for not demanding a diet or else. The ending worked for me if for no other reason than Mile chose not to try to solve every problem by the end. Even in fiction live isn't that easy.
