Then the Stars Fall by Brandon Witt

Small town romance about a very much out of the closet gay veterinarian, Wesley, who falls in love, or at least at the beginning, in lust for "apparently" straight widower, father of three, Travis. But this is not a gay for you story, Travis is bisexual, well aware of it: when he was in college, and engaged with his future wife, he was also having sexual relationships with men; he wasn't exactly cheating, his soon to be wife told him that, if it was with a man, she didn't care, but indeed, she did, and Travis, who was really in love with her, choose the path of being faithful. Then his wife died, and Travis, 4 years later, is still grieving.

I liked this approach, maybe I'm wrong, but this is what I consider bisexuality: being bisexual doesn't mean you have to be with both sexes at the same time, but that, you could fall in love with either; once you fall in love, you can be exclusive with your partner cause you love them, and not cause you choose one sex over the other.

I like basically all the characters, supporting and main, with the obvious exception of the villain. If I have to pick one favorite, it's little Mason: not sure, but I think Brandon Witt may have a nice story about Mason when he will grew up, or at least I hope so.

Nice, comfortable story, good feelings and overall warm environment, with just the touch of hardness to make it realistic.
