Amazon Kindle: Br0th3rly (Famous on the Internet Book 1)
Start your journey through the new techie/geeky gay romance series by Alina Popescu—Famous on the Internet—with the first book, Br0th3rly.
Blurb: 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.

“So... I’m seeing someone,” Trev said, his voice almost a whisper.
I flinched and looked at him, but he missed my reaction. He was too busy studying the label of his beer bottle, as if he didn’t know every word written on it by heart by now.
I swallowed hard and cleared my throat. This was big. Trev never said he was seeing people. He was dating left and right, but he’d never made a point of mentioning someone before. He must have known, just as everyone else had, it wouldn’t last. So why bother? But he was making the effort now and my mind and heart recognized the immensity of his statement. They were both racing wildly and it took me a while to find my footing.
“I’m happy for you, Trev,” I said, and meant it. Sure, I wanted to stand and scream at him, throwing everything off the table and then picking a fight with the whole town to let it all out. Yet, beyond that, him telling me he was in a relationship meant he’d truly found somebody. Despite my sick obsession, I’d loved Trev all my life. There was nothing I wanted more than seeing him happy. I knew I couldn’t be the one to give him that. As disappointed as I was, knowing I would never find my happiness, at least he’d found his. Or was on his way to finding it.
Trevor frowned and nodded, his eyes never leaving the shiny label. “What about you, little bro? Are you seeing anybody?”
Like my brother, I had never really mentioned any love interests. For obvious reasons. Him asking was as unusual as his earlier update had been. I tried to figure out why he’d ask such a thing, and came up with an explanation. Now that he was happy, Trev wanted his little brother to experience the same bliss. His care warmed my heart, broken as it was. That was how I was supposed to love him; not in the deviant way I had all my life.
“Um, no one worth mentioning.” I shrugged, feeling a little awkward, when he trained his eyes on me, watching me closely, frown still in place. “I’m not really dating, to be honest. I have no time for it.”
