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.

As I Am by A.M Arthur is the third book in the All Saints series. I have not read all the previous in this series. I was not lost with the main story itself.
Will has huge panic attacks. He tries to keep them hidden from people. Only one who really knows him is Taz his online friend. Who also has PSTD. The one man in the whole world who gets him. He would love to meet him for real but he is not sure Taz is ready.
Taz has bad scars both psychically and mental ones. They are from acid burns. He hopes when he meets Will in person that will will see the man he is not the scars he carries.
Will has a fiery personality and is very brave and strong. Together these two have much to over come, and will love be enough?
I really liked the message to this book. Of loving yourself just as you are. Accepting your disabilities and making them strengths. I like that what makes both of these men broken to others actually makes them perfect for each other. Over all a very emotional sweet book. Loved it. Would love to read more of this series in the future too.
