Fighting his relentless love for Trevor, the guy he was raised to consider his brother, has been Tristan’s mission in life.
To distance himself from Trevor, even after discovering they weren’t really related, he left for college at sixteen. Moving into the city, building a new life, and running an anonymous blog about what he considers sick, twisted feelings might make Tristan famous on the Internet, but it isn’t enough to get over his obsession. Every time he goes home, a quick glance at Trevor brings it all flooding back.

When commitment-phobe Trevor announces he’s got a serious boyfriend during one of Tristan’s rare visits home, the adoring kid brother will be forced to run once again. This time, however, Trevor doesn’t stand back and watch him leave.
Instead, he follows him, making it nigh on impossible for Tristan to keep his love a secret for much longer.

Mom had noticed my state and attempted to find out what was going on with me through a drawn-out lunch with far too many courses and way too much interrogation for my taste. I blamed it on work, as I always did: stress and tight deadlines. Judging by the amount of shit my job took the blame for, I may as well have been the freaking CEO of a multinational company. In truth, I wasn’t top management by any means. I was working for an up-and-coming tech company’s marketing department as a content developer. Which is another way to say I wrote for them. A lot. Articles, press releases, blog posts, replies to interview questions; whatever they needed to sound good, it got sent to my inbox.
I had a double degree, IT and English having been my two main passions besides whatever sport I was into because of my puppy love for my brother. Ideally, I would work in both fields. I thought opting for such a small company would allow me to do that. The reality was the startup put people where they were needed, and if they were good at what they did, they were rarely assigned tasks that could distract them from that main area of focus. Apparently I was good at this writing bit. Who knew?
Bottom line, I had a fun job in the kind of company that flooded the recreational rooms with all sorts of games in an attempt to boost creativity, and although it got overwhelming at times, it was quite the opposite of stressful. It also paid well, which made up for the fact I didn’t spend that much time with their engineers.
My brother always said they were full of bullshit, because he’d occasionally read the articles or interviews reporting on our company culture and how cool everything was. With his brother overworked and stressed out of his mind, that couldn’t be true. They were lying to everyone to get more unsuspecting people to come and work for them. Trevor never once thought I might be deceiving him. Or if he did, he never tried to get to the bottom of it.
Why would he bother though? I’d been pushing him away since I’d left for college and never made any attempt to rekindle our thick-as-thieves relationship of old.

Tristan has been in love with his brother for as long as he can remember. Trevor isn't really his brother, but they've been raised as such, so it counts. Tristan escaped from home and his feelings as soon as possible, but he returned for his mother's birthday only to be confronted with Trevor having a boyfriend and being subjected to seeing them together and having to run once again or making everyone in his family uncomfortable by learning of his love for his brother.

I fell in love with Tristan from the first page of this book. He was such a powerful, lovable, well-rounded character. I laughed with him, my heart broke for him and I was so unbelievably happy that he got his HEA like you wouldn't believe. Trevor was sweet, too, and I really loved seeing them together. And their parents were so awesome, so caring, loving and supportive. 

Alina Popescu took me through a rollercoaster of emotions while reading this book, happiness, despair, crying my eyes out (you will so need to stock up on Kleenex for the middle portion of this book!) and left me with a huge smile in my face. Hugely recommended!
