The Song of Achilles.
Looked it up a couple of places, but I think this review was the clincher:

The Telegraph wrote:
Miller’s prose often reads like homoerotic slash fiction, but with heroes from mythology instead of Frodo and Sam. “Our mouths opened under each other,” she writes, bafflingly, when Achilles and Patroclus first kiss.
