The Struggle Within by Tyler May
Amazon –> http://bit.ly/2q4PUPL
Available on Kindle Unlimited
Through Ryan’s trials, there are three different perspectives: a best friend watching from the outside, a lover desperate to get in, and his own mind.
His struggles were theirs. He just didn’t know it.
A tragic accident changed Dr. Ryan Jacobs’ life and freed him from a past he thought he’d never escape, but with that freedom came the realization: he could escape the man, but would be bound to the torturous battle within his mind. Fighting for control of his thoughts, he lived recklessly in a life of addiction and the next good time. Wearing a mask of deception, and hiding it beautifully behind his playboy ways, he fooled himself into thinking this was the real him, but he couldn’t fool everyone.
Dr. Michael Jonas considered Ryan more than just a friend, he was his family. With the support of his wife, Michael held Ryan’s hand, listened to him cry, and helped him through the hardest events of his life. He could see through the fake smiles and playboy attitude, seeing his best friend for the man he really was. After Michael’s wife had given birth to their first child, Michael vowed never to let pain affect his family again, Ryan included. But Michael carried his own burdens and watching Ryan struggle was harder than he thought. It tore him apart, silently, until there was only one choice. Save his best friend before it was too late.
As a high-powered attorney, Jayson Alexander thrived on easy thrills both in his professional and personal life, but when his heart broke the rules, he had no choice but to break it and run from the pain. Obsessive about controlling his own life, he set goals and rules and tried to ensure his own happiness, but life had a different plan. So he sought out answers and took on a case that would eventually change everything. He was drawn to Ryan from the moment he laid eyes on him. With a magnetic connection he couldn’t deny, he found Ryan irresistible, but he found out quickly the connection was more than physical. Jayson wanted Ryan, but how could he fight the demons Ryan’s mind was creating and stop them from pushing him away?
Ryan built a force field around his heart, vowing after that tragic day, no man would be allowed close enough to ever hurt him again, but with the support of his best friend and the man he loved, could Ryan beat The Struggle Within once and for all?

Some mistakes are worth making.
Benji never meant to catfish a hot college football player in Minnesota when he met a fellow anime fan online. But when @joshfortytwo announces he's coming to Miami for a spontaneous visit, Benji is pretty sure the left tackle--whatever that is--expects to meet a cute girl in a bikini, not an aging twink hoping to finally get his life together when he finishes massage therapy school.
Josh doesn't let himself wonder about questions like:
*why don't you want to ask @princessglitter if she's a girl?
*why don't you tell your friends that you can't hang on Sunday nights because you've got a date to watch anime with your new BFF?
*why do you call it a date?
All he knows is that he needs to escape from the stress of having been injured just before the bowl game, and @princessglitter has somehow become his best friend.
But when Josh's secrets and Benji's sex appeal smash together for forty-eight scorching hours, they're going to feel the heat from Miami to Minnesota.

“You're old enough to do it alone. That doesn't mean you have to.”
Growing up hanging out in his single mom's diner, Sam Grant never planned to inherit it. But a car accident two weeks after his eighteenth birthday left him no choice but to turn away from the freedom he'd tasted, take legal guardianship of his younger brother, and hang up his childhood. Now twenty, Sam's diner regulars have watched him grow up, but he can't convince himself he's worth dating. Not once a guy finds out about his scars: his fixation on routines, the responsibilities cracking him open, and his growing certainty that he can't be attracted to someone he doesn't already love. Who would stick around that long?
Dying his first gray hairs pink was the extent of Denver Weston's thirtieth birthday crisis. He's lived through it all already—forced to drop out of school a decade ago when his parents found out he was seeing a guy and cut him off, doing what he had to in order to survive, moving in with boyfriend after boyfriend. His HIV diagnosis seven years ago is the best thing that’s happened to him. Starting Plus, a HIV charity, has given him a purpose. But Denver can't bring himself to have his heart broken over and over, so dating has been off the table. Love and acceptance don't just fall into a guy's lap, do they?
Denver's just the guy who always sits in the corner booth and orders the classic breakfast, eggs over easy. Sam's just the kid who always seems to be working when Denver comes in. It's one small change: a different breakfast order. But, like dominos, the moment their preconceptions of each other collapse, so do their carefully set-up plans. Can they give in to the attraction that's been slowly burning them up, or will uncharted territory make them turn tail and run?
Faux is a standalone gay romance novel with a happily ever after ending.
