Tristan has loved Trevor ever since he discovered the meaning of the word but convinced himself his feelings were dirty because of their brotherly bond. Knowing that he could never love another has left him alone with very little sexual knowledge as he never wanted to give himself to anyone other than Trevor. To bury his feelings over the years he ran away from home, went to college under early admittance, stayed away from home as much as possible and buried himself in work. Everything changes though on the day Trevor introduces his family to his boyfriend as he looks a lot like Tristan. Running away doesn't work this time as Trevor soon follows and all the feelings that have been brewing between them come boiling to the surface.
Trevor always felt close to Tristan but didn't want to tarnish the connection they had as brothers. Instead of running and hiding though he buried himself in numerous one-night stands and alcohol. He acted carefree but inside he too was hurting. After the debacle of bringing his boyfriend home he can no longer ignore Tristan's tendency to run and puts his job, and the life he's lived thus far, on the line by speaking truths long kept hidden in a moment of intense relief and joy.
Tristan and Trevor are both so worried about what others think that they forget about their own happiness. Trevor held back the truth as he felt Tristan needed a brother more than anything else growing up. Tristan was too worried about rejection from his parents, Trevor, and his community to admit his feelings and constantly beat himself up over feelings of dirtiness and perversion. His angst was heavy-handed and palpable and I felt immense sympathy for him. While the two of them wallowed in unhappiness it was their parents who brought a bit of sunshine to the angst in this story as they were sweet and supportive from realizing their sons were gay to the feelings the boys had for each other. Their son's happiness was their only concern and they're what every kid would want in a parent. Along with a romance that percolated for most of the story before combusting in a sensual tug of war was a clever plot device that allowed readers to dig deeper into Tristan's psyche and innermost thoughts. Tristan's blog about his perceived questionable feelings for Trevor caught the attention of the publishing world and it's put him on the cusp of fame. His blog posts were thoughtful, humorous, and self-deprecating and I enjoyed seeing this other side of Tristan; a less serious one. On a whole this was a quick read full of intense emotions that ended just as it got started as I long to see their relationship evolve out in the open. It nicely balanced angst with steamy encounters to keep me fully immersed in the outcome and is another satisfying read from Ms. Popescu that has me excited for the next installment in this new series.
The internal turmoil of feeling that much love for his sibling made me want to go in the book and give Tristan a bone-cracking hug. He couldn't deal with his feelings, so he did what he thought was best: run. Run from his home town, run from his family, run far away from the only love he ever had and ever will. Who would have thought telling the truth changes things so much?
Eh, it was free so for that I am grateful.
