Kinsley Simmons does not belong in an inpatient facility for people struggling with eating disorders. However, her doctor and therapist are of the opinion that she does; which is why she's missing out on her college graduation to participate in a recovery program for Bulimia Nervosa. A girl with a Type A personality, Kinsley never thought her life would come to this—dumped by her college sweetheart, flunking most of her classes, caught between bickering parents on the brink of divorce, and spiraling out of control as the dangerous habits of her disorder destroy her health and friendships.
When Royce Adams is invited to speak to her therapy group, Kinsley isn't at all interested in anything he has to say. He can never understand what she is going through, or have the first idea of how to help her get better. Yet, as he takes a personal interest her recovery, she comes to realize there is more to Royce than meets the eye. While seeming perfect on the surface, he wrestles with demons of his own, including a past riddled with addiction and self-destructive behavior.
As their friendship blossoms into something more Kinsley will find in Royce the strength to face the reasons behind her disorder. With his help, she may also find what she needs to live a full, healthy life ... one filled with happiness and love.
Interview with the Author
Q: So, what makes the Sharing Spaces series special? A: For one thing it was my first attempt at writing outside of Fantasy. All of my stories have elements of romance, and I wanted to write a series that was strictly that. I love the New Adult genre, and how it tackles that tricky age between teen and adult, when a person is really learning about who they are. So much of that genre is filled with drama and angst, so I wanted to tackle it a bit differently. While I wanted the Sharing Spaces series to deal with the important issues that college students face every day, I wanted to do that with a comedic delivery. So my idea about a series of romantic comedies revolving around a group of college roommates was born.
Q: Why should readers give these books a try? A: Anyone who loves romance with humor and characters that they can relate to, will enjoy these books. Everyone will be able to see themselves and their friends in the roommates of Apartment 4C, which makes these stories that much more entertaining.
Q: How many books will be in the complete series? A: There’s really no telling at this point. As the roommates grow and near graduation, I’ve been thinking about adding new roomies to the mix. So, really, this series could continue on for quite a few books. However, the way things are playing out in my head, I’m thinking 5-6 books.

I've read all of Alicia's books and all of them, regardless of the series, are great. This book is no exception. The plot moves along quickly, with enough characters and enough "'will they/won't they" twists that you'll never be bored. The storyline follows a most interesting topic. The story wraps up perfectly, but the writing is so well done you'll be wanting more. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the this series, as well as Alicia's others.
Wow. Alicia Michaels takes a taboo topic like bulimia and pulls it front and center. The MC, Kinsley had it all, but things quickly spiraled out of control after her cheer coach suggested she drop a few pounds. Getting dumped by her longtime boyfriend only caused things to spin further out of Kinsley’s grasp. Then, her grades followed. Before she knew it everything was beyond her control. Now in a last effort to get herself healthy and back on track Kinsley is entering Willow Creek.
Alicia Michaels peels back the layers of what it is like to battle bulimia and OCD. The reader sees and experiences it all; therapy, meds, family, all of it. I could certainly put myself in Kinsley’s shoes. Like her, I have always strived for perfection so I can see how easy it was for her to spiral downhill.
I love that the author is shedding light on this topic and donating proceeds to this cause. I hope this story gives courage to anyone suffering from an eating...
I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. I really appreciate the way the author wrote about such a difficult topic that impacts so many. Thank you Alicia.
