Divorced gay man in the closet Charlie has always had a soft point for his best friend Bryce. Bryce is younger and handsome, and openly gay. When Charlie's son is old enough to understand, Charlie decides that it's time to coming out of the closet, and to tell Bryce the true. He is not expecting that Bryce is so comprehensive, and even offers to help Charlie to start dating again, this time in the gay scene. Since Charlie fears the loud and crowd gay clubs, they set out for a quite gay friendly bookstore, and Charlies gets lucky at first try. Problem is that Bryce is not so sure to letting go Charlie.

Bryce is a very nice character, a good friend and also unselfish. He always liked Charlie, but giving that the man was married and apparently happy, he contents himself with being a good friend. And when the man reveals the truth, he again puts his friend's desires in front of him. But being unselfish and being stupid are two different things, and Bryce realizes soon that if he allows to a fine man like Charlie to enter the gay scene, he will lose the man forever.

Charlie is a bit less nicer than Bryce. True he was just through a difficult phase of his life, but it was really his own choice to get married when he already knew that he was gay. And when he finally has the courage to coming out, and he is so lucky to have his interest in Bryce reciprocate, he doubts of his feeling and of those of his friend. I believe that Charlie should be more firm and strong in his behavior.

Anyway, the story is nice and good, with little angst and even some funny moment; the love story is simple and homey like a barbecue at home: pretty romantic and without really big obstacles in the path. A good example that sometime, when you are searching true love, is not necessary to go far from around you.
