*I received this book a while ago, but due to a stressful internship and my very last finals – which are still not over – I kind of abandoned my blog and all the books for which I still own people reviews. So here’s me catching up. I’m sorry it took so long*
As I Am
(All Saints #3)
by A.M. Arthur
Publication Date: February 13th 2017 by Carina Press
Will Madden is healing.
Thanks to therapy and a growing support system, he’s taking baby steps into a promising future. One of those steps leads him to an online chat room, where he quickly bonds with fellow PTSD sufferer Taz Zachary.
Despite their virtual connection, Taz is initially freaked out at the idea of meeting Will face-to-face. A sexual relationship may be the last thing on his mind, but his craving for human interaction—and more of the way Will makes him laugh—gives him the courage he needs to take the next step.
In person, the chemistry between them is undeniable. But Will is hurt when Taz doesn’t seem to be in any rush to get him into bed. Still, acceptance, love and happiness all seem within reach for the first time in forever—until demons from the past threaten the future they both finally believe they deserve.
I love A.M. Arthur’s way of writing “broken” characters, they are so very real. Even though I don’t personally struggle with the problems the characters portray I feel so very connected to them. Another thing I really like about A.M. Arthur’s books is that her New Adult books take their time. There is no insta-love and I absolutely love how the characters get to know each other and fall for each other over time. I also love how we always catch up with characters from previous books.
I totally recommend her All Saints series if you want a M/M romance with some darker elements. I totally hope for a fourth installment in this series.
Rating: 4,5 stars
