SynopsisFighting 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.
Trev ran past me as he shouted, “Give me five.”
His five-minute prep for a night out had always baffled me. All he did was rush through a shower, pull some clothes out of his closet and throw them on, run his fingers through his hair, a comb if it was really needed, and, voilà, he was ready, all perfect and sexy. I could never pull that off. If I tried, my hair would end up sticking out in all directions, my clothes wouldn’t match, and I’d end up looking like a hobo.
True to style, he rumbled down the stairs five minutes later, smelling divine and looking as if he’d stepped out of a magazine cover. I swallowed hard, unable to stop myself from taking him in. How my cock did not tear through my jeans, I couldn’t say. All I knew was I was now an expert at dressing in a way that would hide my bulge and keep it contained as much as humanly possible.
He hooked his arm around my shoulders and walked me outside.
“Where are we going, Trev?” I asked, looking up into his dark eyes.
I would introduce him as my brother, sure, but I never called him that when we were alone together, nor after that first introduction. I avoided referring to him as my sibling and used his name instead. I preferred his name; the same name I uttered on so many nights while writhing on top of my sheets and fucking my hand. Although the knowledge of how twisted I was never left me, I didn’t need to keep reminding myself he was my brother every time I addressed him.
“Mackie’s Bar and Grill?” he asked, raising a brow. He wasn’t taller by more than an inch or two, but it allowed him to look down at me, and I was happy with that. I loved to smile up at Trev and see him smile back, especially when he held me like this. It allowed my imagination to turn and twist the moment into something it was not.
I really enjoyed this book, and it is really thought provoking.
I grew up in stepfamily and the thought of lusting after one of my siblings makes me feel sick!. I have to clarify that Tristan and Trevor are not blood-related at all, but they were brought up as siblings.
Tristan the main characther is gay and is a blogger. He knows exposing his feelings could destroy his family, so he keeps his distance, what makes it worse is that Trevor is also gay!
If I'm making it sound quite depraved, I don't mean to its just an inconvenient love/lust, it is a taboo type of subject but the book is entertaining and enjoyable.
Tristan is so tortured by his feelings for his brother, he keeps an anonymous blog that he lets his feelings out on, I liked the fact he disables comments.
He loves his family so has to go home sometimes and when he does his big brother Trevor welcomes him with open arms and loves spending time with him.
When something major happens its too much for Tristan and his mum steps in and all I can say is she's a rock star, she doesn't sugar coat but is supportive and understanding.
I really liked both the main charcthers and enjoyed the outcome of the story.
