Publisher's Summary

When an ex-boyfriend turns Jayne’s night out into a living hell, he has no choice but to make a deal with two hot, hunky, would-be bodyguards. The promise? If they can get him out unscathed, Jayne will do anything they want…

Sarcastic, snarky, and totally fabulous, when single dad and bioethicist Jayne is cornered by his abusive ex-boyfriend on a night out, he comes up with an escape plan on the fly - find the biggest, strongest, and thirstiest man in the club, and seduce him into giving Jayne safe passage home. Easy. Over the last few years, in a bid to mask the pain of loss, Jayne’s bedded more men who fit that description than he can count, and he knows he won’t have any trouble bagging one tonight.

Until one becomes two, and suddenly, nothing’s so certain anymore.

A fun MMM mpreg contemporary romance

This is book 5 in the series and can be listened to as a standalone.

I loved that this was an MMM romance. The dynamics between the characters was hot and deliciously sinful.

I am in love with this entire series!!

Michael Ferraiuolo's narration was smooth and flawless.

When love is multiplied


Frankly speaking, I always hesitate when it comes to reading/listening ménage stories. They are the best when done right but they can become a really dreadful one to read if they are not done good. But of course, this is a Piper Scott book and when didn’t my beloved author ever treat her characters right? These three are the cutest.

Jayne was in need of rescue from his horrible ex when he went out to club to have a night of fun. He’s an Omega father with a small child but that doesn’t make him crave and want some happiness in life. And when our damsel is in distress, not one but two shining knights in armor came to rescue him. At first, it was an arrangement of convenience but later it turned out to be so much more. Caleb and Everett might be what he always needed in life to feel cherished, love and protected.

They are just sooo cute. Jayne is a responsible omega father with a little child and he also has to take care of his younger brother. And Caleb and Everett fit right into his life. Both are financially stable, and are very willing to help and love Jayne. Our two alphas are also in need of something tangible and true to glue them together for the rest of their lives. And Jayne was the medicine they needed so much. It’s truly fascinating, funny, sweet and extremely hot and spicy. Me likey! I truly can’t wait for last book in the series.

Perfect

I loved listening to this. Jayne has come a long was from the evil doctor in the Solution that we were introduced to. We are finally shown why reacted that way during that time and it was so sad. Caleb and Everett are the perfect guys to show Jayne that love is a beautiful thing. We get to watch this couple bloom from uncertain beginnings to the strong throuple they were meant to be. Michael does an outstanding job voicing all these character. And listening to the Single Dad's chat is always a highlight.

Series gets better with each installment

I love this series, and this was a great addition. It's pretty low angst and I really enjoyed how it all played out. For the length sometimes it gets a little draggy but this one really doesn't have any unnecessary droning on and Ferraiuolo does a fantastic job with the narration. Overall worth the time for the listen.

Great Story

Really great story. Piper Scott and Michael Ferraiuolo are always a great combination. I loved Jayne, Caleb and Everett and how well they meshed together. The voice choices were spot on, especially Jayne - he was definitely my favourite. I love the chat between all the single dads. Would 100% recommend this series, and pretty much any collaboration between these two!

I bloody LOVE the narration of this series!

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

This is book 5 in the Single Dad Support Group series, and while it's not totally necessary for you to have read books one through four before this one, I would recommend you do. There is much referenced here that happens in the previous books and it would give you a much better picture of this group of men and how they support each other. And also, I said so!

Because I bloody LOVE this series! Granted, The Proposal was a bit lacking something, but I still enjoyed. The entire series has kept me riveted and I hate that I have to wait for the next one to come out in audio. I don't like to switch between listening and reading in a series, i find it affects my enjoyment.

Anyways!

We met Jayne in book 3, however, I didn't click til book 4 who he was and where he fit into everything. Everett is Gage's big brother and Caleb is Aaron's twin (book 2) It took me a while here to place them, to be honest but you know, it's been a while!

Jayne's ex blindsides him on a night out and Everett and Caleb come to his rescue. There follows a delightful tale of two men who aren't supposed to love each other realising that Jayne is the one thing, the one PERSON they have been looking to make their lives totally complete.

The story line dealing with Jayne's ex aside, it really is a beautiful love story! I mean I've loved most of this series, and Mal and Vincent's story is as close to a love story as we got before. Oh don't get me wrong, there is romance, and passion, but I found with these three? Because Caleb and Everett are already in a committed relationship and they ALREADY love each other, adding Jayne into the mix and he really is the icing on their cake.

There is a huge amounf of chemistry between these guys. Even before there is any kind of sexual connection, there is an emotional one. Caleb and Everett think, WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY before they get Jayne into bed, that he is their ONE. I mean, I don't ususally like such rapid movement of such feelings, but cos of their already formed bond, both Caleb and Evertt can see, they can FEEL that Jayne is who they need.

But when they DO get Jayne down and dirty?? OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, I did not see that one coming! No ma'am I did not! There is a persona portrayed here, for all three men, and mixing in Jayne flips all that on its head and stomps it away! PHEW!!

I love that jayne found the strength to fight Bastian, his ex. To finally be able to stand up to him and put an end to his trouble.

I loved that Caleb and Everett take to Jayne's son Parker, and to Shep, Jayne's younger brother, so well. Being confirmed childless batchelors one minute, then dad to a baby and a teenager would throw most men off, but these two excelled themselves!

Michael Ferraiuolo narrates this series. I love his work.

The voices for each men are different and clear, and the Single Dad guys' voices carry consistantly through the series. He reading voice is deep and even, and I can just wile away many hours listening to his work. He gets over all the deep sated love that Caleb and Everett have for each other, and how much they NEED Jayne in their lives. He gets over how much it hurts Everett what Caleb is doing with his dad, or not doing as the case may be. He gets over how Jayne was so deeply hurt by Bastian, and how much he worked at getting free.

I just LOVE Ferraiuolo's narration of these books, I really do!

But now?? Now I gotta wait. . . .and wait. . . .and WAIT for book 6. KnotMyProblem needs his story and I so bloody need it I could burst! BURST I tell ya! So HURRY!!

Loving Jayne, Caleb AND Everett

I adored Jayne in the last Single Dad Support Group book. Snarky, defiant, glitter-obsessed. But those things hid a dark past and when Harlow suggested he join the online support group, Jayne, with a five-month-old, decided to reach out. Glitter Doctor’s arrival in the group caused quite a stir. Glit as he quickly became known, fit right in. And thus the group expanded. When his younger brother Simon moved to LA to be with Harlow, Jayne found himself reaching out to the other single dads living in Aurora to ask for help. And they stepped up. This new book is about closing some circles, so it eventually became apparent he had more connections that just the online ones.

Despite his horrible experience with his ex, Jayne still likes to lose himself in drink and random hookups. One night he’s out at a club and things go sideways. Fortunately two gorgeous men are there to rescue him. What he doesn’t know is Caleb and Everett are best friends. As they are both alphas, their attraction to each other is cute, but neither is getting all his sexual needs met. If they come across a willing omega, they’re happy to bring him home. But nothing has ever taken hold. They’ve never met a glitter-chested omega who struck their fancy.

Until Jayne.

But when things keep going wrong in Jayne’s life, the men are there to step in. At first it’s just a support system they’re offering, but soon it turns to more. Jayne is overwhelmed by his role as father to Parker and guardian to his younger brother Shep. He has an important job, and can’t afford to take time off work to handle the drama. Enter Caleb and Everett. Caleb is essentially a rootless playboy who lives off his trust fund while Everett is destined to take over the family business. They’re not hurting for money, so helping Jayne get back on his feet is a no-brainier. Oh, and the sex? HAWT.

Things come to a head and the world clarifies. Each man faces his past and charts a path into the future. A path that includes each other.

Needless to say I loved this book. I’ve loved everyone in the series and can’t wait until Knot My Problem – the last single in the Single Dad Support Group – gets his happy ending. Oh and glitter. Always more glitter. Finally I’ll mention Michael Ferraiuolo. He’s always a pleasure to listen to and between Ms. Scott’s words and his delivery, there are always laughs aplenty. So…waiting impatiently for the next book…

Pretty good

The story was good, bold and exciting in places. Piper did a great job with world building this series. My only issue was it felt like it dragged in places and then suddenly 14 hours had gone by and only four major plot points were visible to me. There was lots of side stuff going on, lots of spicy scenes and lots of heated moments between the three main characters. The characters were well developed, unique, creative and fun! Lots of humour throughout and lots of character building from the start to the end. I liked seeing the characters grow together and get through life troubles as a unit.

Michael Ferraiuolo is a top ten narrator but in this one I just wasn’t really feeling his enthusiasm. That being said there wasn’t nothing wrong with the narration, all the technical stuff was spot on, the reading was crisp and clear, I just didn’t feel the passion from him that I would normally.

Romantic, Empowering, and Adorable

I've enjoyed all of the Single Dad Support Group books so far, and Jayne's story was no exception! What started out as a panic-fueled bodyguard situation with Caleb and Everett morphed into a refreshingly realistic and sweet relationship. Even though Caleb and Everett had been together for years, I love that Jayne never felt like the third wheel in their romantic relationship. If anything, Jayne's fabulously glittery personality shone brighter than everyone else's and made their triad something that could last. Though Jayne's ex proved to be more and more villainous as this story progressed, I never once felt like Jayne was a damsel in distress. It was so empowering to see a man perceived as weaker by society take charge of his situation to protect his family. Thinking back to where Jayne, Caleb, and Everett's journey started, the three of them went through so much together over the course of this story. I'm so happy that I got to listen to every happy, sad, frustrating, and painful detail as these three worked to merge their busy lives together. Michael Ferraiuolo's fantastically expressive narration brought this already wonderful story to the next level with his audio performance. 

**I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this book. This review expresses my honest thoughts and opinions.

Loved it

I love this series so much. It's funny with the Single Dad chats, it's serious where it needs to be, and the love between the characters is so genuine. Michael Ferraiuolo is a narrator with a brilliant voice. Not only can he make a diverse cast of characters distinguishable, but he's also able to put all the emotions in the books. I am sad that this series is coming to a close in the next book, but I cannot wait to listen to what happens next.

Enjoyable!

This was another great addition to the series and really, if you haven't read the previous books you're really missing out. --

Jayne, Caleb, and Everett are perfect for each other. Caleb and Everett being Jayne's knights in shiny armor and Jayne being perfect to complete Caleb and Everett and provide them with what had been missing in their relationship. They're fun and hot and they seemed on very equal footing in their relationship.--

I adored every single chat between the Single Dads, they're so much fun. I can't wait for Knot's story!--

Michael Ferraiuolo did an outstanding job with Jayne, Caleb, Everett, and all the supporting cast, and he has such a great comedic timing, making the story come to life for me.

Another wonderful addition to this series!

The written version is one of my favorites of the series, so when I found out that it will be converted to audio and narrated by Mr Ferraiuolo, whom I am a fan I couldn't wait to hear it. I loved this series so much! This amazing group of single dads supporting each other through chat conversations is a treat with all the witty, funny, and endearing interventions. I enjoyed a lot the banter between the members of the club and how slowly they find their forever. Now is the turn of Jayne and this book is about how love, family and friendship save his life. Even if some parts are difficult to read, I assured you that at the end, you'd love the happy ending even if it made you cry. The addition of the heartfelt and energetic performance of Mr Ferraiuolo made everything even better. So good!

Absolute perfection!

The Single Dad’s Support Group series is one of my all time favourite series – EVER. And Michael Ferraiuolo’s narration is the absolute cherry on the top of this perfect ice cream sundae.  The Promise is the story of Jayne – single Dad with rotten luck and a worse ex. Along comes Caleb and Everett who, while they love each other deeply, are not quite enough on their own.  The circumstances of their meeting and connection builds such a brilliant story that I wonder at Piper’s brain sometimes! Heaps of laughs, some tears and some furthering of the overall storyline makes this book pivotal in the series. This is not a standalone and must be read after the other books in the series (and trust me – they are just as good!).
