Review: The Problem by Piper Scott


51bSVqD1gZL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_Laurence’s new lover is half his age. The problem? His relationship is about to make his life a lot more complicated…

Successful, sensible, and settled in his ways, single dad Laurence isn’t looking for love when he runs into the young man who sweeps him off his feet… and onto his knees. With an upcoming raise on the line and a son to care for, he can’t let an unconventional relationship jeopardize the future of his family. He’s a parent first and a lover second, and that’s the way it has to be. Right?

The only thing Alex loves more than older men is being filthy with them. The problem? Sometimes, it backfires in the worst ways.

Up-and-coming painter Alex is broken in ways others can’t see, and he copes with the pain by drowning himself in experience—especially experienced men. But when he crosses paths with Laurence, he finds himself drawn down an avenue of life he’s sworn he’ll never visit again. Men are meant to be disposable, and Laurence is only supposed to be a hookup… so why does Alex feel so safe whenever he’s around? When a matter of concealed identity threatens Laurence and Alex’s bond, they have a choice—rise above the forces that seek to divide them and find happiness with each other, or let their problems grow too great to conquer.

The Problem is an 81,000 word contemporary omegaverse mpreg novel featuring a quirky group of single dads, the naughtiest lace panties you’ll ever read about, and the gradual development of a relationship between a Daddy and his boy.

The Problem by Piper Scott had all my one-clicker elements in one spot: lace panties, Daddy/little kink, and single dad. I’ve only read about one or two with mpreg as well, but I really enjoyed it here. If those are your one-clicker items too, you’ll enjoy the heck out of this book!

Laurence is a hard-working single dad who is in the market for a raise. He’s got a lot on his shoulders, but his world takes a spin when he meets young up-and-coming artist, Alex. Can this single dad handle the filthy spitfire that is Alex, and what happens when their fates take a drastic turn?

This book had a mad-dash pace, first and foremost. Reveal after reveal were just waiting right around the corner. The best part? There wasn’t a lot of added drama or angst. Everything just worked so well together.

I also thought the alpha/omega dynamic here was just so unique and different. You’ll see what I mean 😉 Alex and Laurence know what they want, and they are so open to getting it. It pulls you right in.

I will say there were some mega awkward moments, though. Some of the conversations with fam members were a bit TMI, for my tastes. Or a lot, really. So much disclosure going on, but in the overall scheme of things, besides pulling me out of the story for a moment or two, I was able to continue on with the story.

And the sex was smoking hot. Like, burn your eyebrows, hot. There’s also a bit of an…unexpected fetish that went 0 to 60 and just got so intense that it was all fireworks. I’m really excited to read about the other dads in this series.  

4 stars!
