Brad’s issue instead is not really that he is falling for an apparently straight man, but more that he is still mourning his lost partner. Again, to be true with him, I had a similar experience with a dear one lost to cancer, and who lives with a terminal patient has plenty of time to prepare to the final moment, and when it happens, you are already in the process of learning to live without your dear one. So no, I don’t think Brad’s feelings for Mac are too immediate or maybe temporary, what I think is that, once they start the relationship, they will need time to find their balance, as indeed is in the plot of the story.
The romance between the men is good but not too sugary; there is the right dose of sex, and the sex was always direct and basic, not really roses and champagne, but more the good and healthy expression of two adult men. It was also very physical, but not the acrobatic variety, more again, two men who had no issue to admit what felt good and what they could enjoy of their body (see Mac’s discovery of man on man sex).
