Summary

Vincent’s past threatens to overthrow his future. The solution? He’s about to find it in the storage closet at his friend’s wedding. 

All single dad Vincent is expecting from his friend’s wedding is a good time...not an irresistible older omega named Mal who slips into his heart as quickly as he slips into his bed. With a job relocation to the city on the horizon, a relationship isn’t off the table, but there’s a catch. 

There’s something about Vincent’s past his prospective lover needs to know - something he’d rather leave behind. 

All chronically single Mal wants is to have a family. The solution? Take matters into his own hands....

At fifty years old, Mal has come to accept he'll never find a partner, but won't back down from starting a family of his own. Desperate to get pregnant, he enrolls in a clinical trial for a fertility drug with promising results.... 

....only to find himself under the care of an all too familiar face, Dr. Vincent Rhyne. 

The Solution is a 90,000 word contemporary omegaverse MPREG novel featuring a quirky group of single dads, fabulous revenge, an ice-cold shower that'll have you overheating, and a unique take on love perfect for two men who don’t quite fit the mold.

Another Outstanding Listen

This is another amazing story in the Single Dad’s Support Group Series! This series is an outstanding series, and this is a perfect addition to that series! I loved the older Omega/younger Alpha aspect of this book, as it, plus a dom/sub feel, gave this a different, and delicious feel to this story!
Michael Ferraiuolo did another outstanding job with the narration. He captures the feel of each character and does a great job giving them each a unique voice.
Great read/listen!

best of books 1-3!

Independent reviewer for Gay Romance Reviews, I was gifted the audio file of this book.

This is book 3 in the Single Dads Support group series, and it's not necessary to read/listen to books one and two first. Mal is Gage's babysitter and Vincent is in the group, so they both pop up in both previous books, but their story can be read as a stand alone.

And I think, for me, this is my favourite of these three! I LOVED The Problem, book one but The Proposal, book two, didn't quite work for me. This one?? This is equal to, or possibly, surpasses The Problem!

Mal is 50, and is trying IVF for a baby. His last chance, actually. When he is accepted in a drug trial to do just what Mal wants it to, he knows this is possibly his only chance to ever have his own baby. Meeting Vincent at Alex and Laurance's wedding was amazing, and Mal would have loved to developed a relationship with the younger alpha, however Vincent lives too far away. When Mal meets his doctor for the drug trial, coming face to face with Vincent was not what he was expecting. Can they make this work, even with their history? Can both men give up their secrets?

I'm listening my way through these books, and I usually keep my review for the book seperate from my review for the audio but I'm finding as I thoroughly enjoy a book that I cannot do that, and since I freaking LOVED this book, I can't here.

Michael Ferraiuolo narrates. His voices for all the characters are consistent across the three books I've listened to, and each and every time he NAILS the narration for the emotions these guys are going through.

I mean, Mal is in heat, and is hiding in a cleaning cupboard when Vincent discovers him and gives him a help to get the edge of while waiting for his blockers to kick in. Mal is desperate and Ferraiuolo gets all of that across, and more in that cupboard and later, when they move to somewhere a little more comfy.

He gets across all of Mal's need to be a daddy, not just a baby sitter. He gets all of Vincent fear of telling Mal about his past, of why he is a father to Nikki, but infertile. He gets over all each man's reaction when the other says to them "So...?"

There was a lot of things that I did not see coming! Not saying what, cos spoilers, but they blew me away! And some I thought were coming but don't, so I'm pleased in a way that these things did NOT happen. They could have been bad for everyone involved.

It's dark when Mal tells Vincent about his past, made me cry. Come to think of it, I cry a lot with these books!

Because I am listening to these and not reading them, I'm not seeing the screen names written down, so I am unable to piece together clues from the names I hear with the blurbs for the next 3 books. I mean, I thought Vincent was xveridy not xVerity! I don't care who is next, just that I am able to get my grubby little mitts on it!

I loved this, and its gonna be hard for Scott and Ferraiuolo to top it!

Vincent and Mal

Absolutely loved this story of acceptance and the healing power of love.
Vincent and Mal meet under unique circumstances.
Both carry heavy baggage from their pasts and are equally terrified of being able to survive if the situation implodes, which of course it does and they must decide if this love is worth fighting for.
Michael Ferrieulio of course has done an exceptional job of bringing this emotionally fraught story to life.

All the Feels, and Ferraiuolo is Spectacular!

Piper Scott blows my mind again, and Michael Ferraiuolo's incredible performances propels this one over into fan-freaking-tastic x 1000. The third book in their Single Dad Support Group series, Scott delivers all the feels in The Solution.

Starting off with a bang, a hot and sexy meet-cute gets these two together, and the rest of their story is sweet and romantic and a seriously wonderful time. There’s a bit of angst, the snarky fun with the dads from the support group, and Vincent’s charming and adorable little daughter.

I adore Michael Ferraiuolo, and he delivers his absolute best in The Solution. The variety of voices he comes up with for this cast is incredible, and what he does with Vincent’s daughter Nicky is the highlight of the story for me.

A fun and creative series, the Single Dad Support Group novels are all great,and you can read them independently, but for me, The Solution is the best.

Creating a family

This is a lovely story about creating a family. Two men who have been knocked around by life but are incredibly nurturing and longing for love and a forever, family find their dreams come true. This is a warm, hopeful story that will leave you feeling good in dark times. I have to be honest, I'd listen to Michael Ferraiuolo read the phone book, but his voice was made for this book. Soft and calming, hot and sexy, romantic, and deeply loving, he gets all the characters and emotions just right.

Piper Scott and Michael Ferraiuolo make one hell of a team!

This is another fantastic installment of the Single Dads series from Piper Scott, and Michael Ferraiuolo once again brings these characters to life in a whole new way with his narration. Mal and Vincent are such layered and interesting characters, and the story will draw you in while the narrator’s smooth delivery and dynamic performance will keep you listening right through to the end. I loooove the scene where we FINALLY get them all together in person - absolutely hilarious. This might still be my favorite of the series. Give this one a listen guys, it’s so incredibly worth it!

Excellent

If you’ve read or listened to the Rutledge Brothers series, you will recognize Mal as one of the rescued omegas. He finally gets his HEA. Mal first meets Vincent at his friend’s wedding and has a great night with him. Unbeknownst to both of them, they meet again as Mal is trying to get pregnant. Despite the risk to Amal’s chance of a family and Vincent’s job, they start a relationship that turns into the best thing for both of them.

This story had a couple of great unexpected twists and I just have to say that Vincent’s secret was very unique; I don’t think I’ve ever read a story with it popping up like this.

Michael is one of my favorite narrators and this story didn’t disappoint. He did a great job bringing these men to life.

This series is great!

The story of Vincent and Mal is so heartwarming. The Single Dads series keeps me smiling and laughing. Who knew placentas could generate such laughter. Piper Scott is a comic genius in her writing. Michael Ferraiuolo's voice is smooth enough to keep this listener engaged.

They Rocked it

You can never go wrong with a story by Piper Scott, she always brings the love and feels. Mal and Vincent are my favorite couple, I didn't want their story to end.
Michael was spot on with the voices for the characters, he brought out every aspect to make it all real.

Love the series!

The Solution is book 3 in the Single Dad Support Group series. I love this book. Mal has been eanting a child and has found a clinical trial to take part in. This could be his last change to have his own child. Vincent just so happens to be his doctor for the trial. They had met at a friend's reception and had an intimate moment. This is a story with an age gap, a little daddy kink and a trans alpha. I love that Vincent is living his true self and that Mal is supportive of him. They really are so sweet together. Spoiler: The trial worked and Mal was able to give birth.
Narrator Michael Ferraiuolo does another amazing job in this series.

Must listen too!

Mal finally got his story! He deserved a happy ending!

Story: 5 stars
So far, this is my favorite book in the series. I loved this book and loved that Mal finally got his happy ending. The way he and Vincent met and interact throughout the book, the way Vincent bends over backward to give Mal everything he dreams about... I LOVED IT ALL!! The Single Dads are back and they are still as funny as ever.

Narration: 4.5 stars
Michael Ferraiuolo did a great job of dramatizing this book. The ups and downs, the many voices, he brought them all to life!

Overall: 5 stars
My favorite book so far and i highly recommend you one-click this book today. it is a brilliant read and audiobook that everyone needs in their library.
