Erryn reviews ‘The Decision (Single Dad Support Group Book 4)’ by Piper Scott. Self-published on March 25, 2018, 526 pgs. Released on August 15, 2020, the audio is 12 hrs & 22 mins. Narrated by Michael Ferraiuolo.
Why I listened to this audio: I am loving this group of single dads.
Harlow’s celebrity daughter is about to make an announcement that will change his life. The decision? It’s going to send him on a collision course with love.
Former SEAL-turned-bodyguard Harlow isn’t prepared to have love smash face-first into his fist after one of the worst days of his life…or for it arrive in such a cute package.
For seven lonely years following the loss of his husband, he’s been too wrapped up in raising his teenage daughter to think about a relationship, much less with an employee young enough to be his son.
But the sparks he feels when he’s with shy, geeky Simon are starting to change his mind, and when circumstance strands them together under the same roof with just one air mattress between them…well, you know what they say. If a single spark can start a fire, Harlow and Simon are about to set the world ablaze.
The Decision is a contemporary omegaverse romance novel featuring a quirky group of single dads, 18D action, air mattress encounters, and two very different men who find exactly what they need in each other.
I love this series by Piper Scott, and was thrilled to see it come to audio. I’m a huge Michael Ferraiuolo fan so each book is a delight. The Single Dad Support Group is this group of men who met online and who support each other. Hence the name. But there’s plenty of snark and joy and other stuff as well. Heck, they’ve even managed to meet in person.
Harlow is single dad to his celebrity daughter Evie. Evie is a great kid right up until the moment things go sideways and Harlow is forced to face things he hasn’t to this point. He’s been raising Evie since the death of his husband, and his entire world revolves around his daughter. He’s even become a bodyguard to protect her. A way to put all that SEAL training to work, I suppose.
In the past he’s hired a contractor to do his computer work – some of it legal, some not so much. He’s never given Simon much thought, until they encounter each other, literally.
Simon has had a crush on Harlow for freaking ever, but he doesn’t expect the meeting to start out as a confrontation. But things settle – somewhat – and the men find themselves sharing a tiny apartment and an air mattress. And, well, things get interesting from there.
I liked the dynamics in this book. Simon may be young, but he’s been holding together his family since the tragic loss of his parents. He has two brothers he loves, but who would be lost without him. He has a nephew he adores, but who also relies on him. His life is truly entrenched in Aurora while Harlow’s is in Hollywood. So how will they ever make it work?
Finally, I liked how Simon’s brother Jayne wound up joining the Single Dad Support Group. That means more books! I’m off to read book five next and I can’t wait. (Oh, and I finally got to find out why Harlow uses the screenname Love Harley…)

Piper Scott debuted as a trio of authors looking to write together for fun. Their collaboration led to three novella-length books (Love Me, Save Me, and Keep Me,) before life sent them in different directions, leaving just one author with an omegaverse plot bunny that wouldn’t leave her alone. Obey was born several months later… but the plot bunny never left–it multiplied.
Left to her own devices, Piper Scott writes scorching but heartfelt contemporary omegaverse romance about men you can’t help but fall in love with.
