Anyway, nothing can hold me back now. SO here I go:
I LOVE this book to the moon and back!! I got sucked into the story from the very beginning.
I'm sorry it was too short with only 100 pages. I've read it in one standing, but it left me wanting for more. Much more! I fell in love HARD with Tristan and Trevor! Please tell me there will be at a sequel! Give it to me!!!! *grabby hands*
At first I got curious about it because, from the writer's name, Alina Popescu, I knew it was written by a Romanian and I haven't read, until now, any MM story by a Romanian author. Br0th3rly was exactly what I needed right now. This one is pretty short, fast-paced, angsty, but with a very sweet ending and some pretty HOT scenes.
Then I was attracted by the not-so-brotherly-love mentioned in the blurb. Even if the main characters are NOT blood related, they were raised as siblings, and were too afraid to lose their family by admitting their feelings, for years!
I thought I knew what I was getting myself into when I dived into this, but it was way different than I expected. Better. Much better!
I was surprised by this book and I think I'll mention some of my reasons:
- all the blog posts were heartbreaking. We get to know Tristan from the very beginning: through the first blog post as AdoringKidBrother. He made me love him from the start.
- it made my heart bleed and I was about to cry while reading the first half of the book. I swear I *never* cry while reading! So this author is that good! Angsty - yes. Unbearable - not really. And I devoured every chapter, every scene.
I don't want to give too much, because I think it's always better to keep the surprises of a book for the other readers. What is safe to say is that I lived and breathed this story, I kept my fingers crossed for Tristan to get his HEA, my heart sank when Trevor invited his boyfriend Ash at their mother's birthday. I could taste Trist's despair and ache and I followed this story praying Trev will share his feelings at one point.
I will not complain we don't get dual POV, because I adored this anyway. I must say I wasn't sure they will get to live their fantasies and all I can say is: Alina Popescu is writing amazing HOT scenes! It was worth it, the waiting, for both of them and for the readers. *blushing*
So this is a beautiful story of two men who hid their feelings for all their lives and got to the point they had to face their fears and admit what they really felt.
The ending may seem too easy for some, but I'd say it was unexpectedly sweet and think they suffered enough.
I will definitely read other books by this author and I would recommend this one to those who are not disturbed by a stepbrother story, those who are not easily offended, and to any MM book lovers.
The writing was done well. I was able to connect with the main character. It has been a while since I've read a book where the POV didn't change. I liked the main characters blog posts throughout the story, it was something different and it flowed quite nicely with the story.
I really liked how loving Trevor was. The affection he has for Tristan was so darn cute.
Tristan is a hoot, but oh my…did he pull on my heartstrings. He’s carried unrequited love for his older brother—a brother not blood related, btw—however, they’ve been raised as siblings, so Tristan has struggled for years with shame and guilt over his feelings.
Trevor, the older brother, loves his little bro madly, going out of his way to try and repair the bond that has been damaged over the years—the thing is he just doesn’t understand what he did wrong to make his brother stay away from him.
With it being Mom’s birthday weekend, Tristan feels he can’t avoid the family—especially Trevor—any longer so he heads home but, what he doesn’t expect is for everything he has been hiding for so long to blow up and start a domino effect. One that—may or may not be—the end of everything he has ever wanted in life.
Br0th3rly is told from Tristan’s POV and to help himself cope with his feelings early on he started blogging...anonymously. We get to read some of these journal entries which allows the reader to get to know him on a more intimate level—and maybe because of these entries—I also felt like I knew a lot more about Trevor.
This is my first time reading anything by Alina Popescu so I didn’t know what to expect, but I was completely sucked into the story from the very beginning. I enjoyed the heck out of it and was keeping my fingers crossed the whole time that things were going to work out.
Within this novella there is a well-developed story, lots of humor, low-level angst—although I did get teary at one point...nope, can’t tell you why—the bedroom chemistry is hot and sexy "that doesn’t necessarily stay in the bedroom" and the writing flowed seamlessly—which I loved.
What I loved the most… there is great family support—something you hardly find in stories—and it’s so rewarding to see that it does exist. Highly recommended especially if you are short on time and just want a feel-good story with a happy ending.
