Erryn reviews ‘The Answer (Single Dad Support Group Book 6)’ by Piper Scott. Self-published on June 28, 2019, 412 pgs. Released on March 26, 2021, the audio is 10 hrs & 57 mins. Narrated by Michael Ferraiuolo.
Why I listened to this audio: I am loving this group of single dads.
When does a single dad not have any kids? When he’s a single daddy.
What eternal bachelor and Wall Street mogul Damien wants more than anything is a boy of his own to cherish, but after years of heartbreak, he’s given up hope. No boy will ever love him as much as they love his wallet.
Which is true up until he meets his best friend’s son, Matthew – a timid single dad almost 20 years his junior who Damien knows right away that he can’t live without. No matter what it takes, Damien will love him, protect him, and spoil him. And one day, if he’s lucky, his sweet Matthew will want to call him Daddy.
The Answer is the 102,000-word conclusion to the Single Dad Support Group series. It features blazing-hot chemistry shared between a Daddy and his boy, obscene confetti, and a friendship seven years in the making that will forever withstand the test of time.
I love Piper Scott. I’m loving the Single Dad Support Group Series. So, naturally, I loved The Answer.
Matthew had been introduced in the very first book and I knew he’d get his own story. It’s been almost four years since he had his daughter Emily and she’s grown into quite a lovely little girl. Being raised alongside her aunt is a cute notion. Anyway, Matthew spends his days caring for the girls, but he’s ready for more. He was a teen dad when he had Emily and he’s now eyeing going back to school. And although he’s not officially a member of the Single Dad Support Group, he’s been invited to the wedding of one of the group.
And he finally meets the elusive Damian. Now, he doesn’t know Damian is one of his dad’s best friends and there’s instant chemistry. Once Matthew makes the connection, and once Damian faces up to the potential consequences of bedding his buddy’s son, they decide to keep their distance. Except I knew that wasn’t going to hold.
But breaking unspoken rules has consequences. Yes, Damian wants a boy and Matthew wants a daddy, but the distance between Aurora and New York City is pretty big. Unless there’s something that might bring them together. And something that might impact their lives forever.
I loved this book. Have I said that already? I’ll say it again. It’s in the top ten for laugh-out-loud fun. Glitter. That shit gets everywhere. I mean, EVERYWHERE. So needless to say, I laughed my ass off. I don’t have kids so I avoid the crap like the plague. These men in the support group? It’s a thing. Just another thing to bond over. And the love between them is palpable. I’ve watched the group evolve, struggle, and come out stronger.
Finally, I have to mention Michael Ferraiuolo. His ability to bring these characters to life is heart-warming. I’ve loved every moment of this series and he’s a big reason why. He and Ms. Scott are a match made in audio heaven.

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.
