Lily pulls on all the heartstrings with this second chance romance

54638086._SY475_After Felix by Lily Morton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I swear, every time I think I’ve found my favourite couple, Lily Morton writes me another pair that steal my heart.

Now, Caden and Malachi will never lose their place at the top because Hey, Lily wrote me a rare breeds farmer and so duh! (see Spring Strings)  but Felix and Max are now very firmly ensconced in second place.

I loved how this book took a different narrative style than most of Lily’s others, giving us a very definite book of two halves.

The first concerns all the build up to what we know from her other books, was a very painful split for Felix when Max broke his heart.

Here we get to see just how that came about and it was bittersweet to watch them falling in love without either of them being able to seize the moment and admit it.

The second half of the story gives us them back in each other’s orbits and, including flashbacks to scenes we’ve encountered from other perspectives in other stories, it really worked well to introduce the slow build up to them finding their way back to each other.

There’s the usual snark you’d expect from Lily, I’d nearly choked to death before the end of page one so thanks for that 😉 but there’s also a lot of pain and hurt.

Felix is an absolute delight and Max is nothing like the flighty, irresponsible character we saw in Zeb and Jesse’s book Best Man. Instead, he’s hiding his hurt away and he’s confused about his feelings for his best friend Ivo, who he’s always believed he was in love with.

The way this complicated and complex plot was navigated really impresses, there’s never a moment where you forget at what point in time you are, the recollections flow seamlessly into the present.

This book had unexpected happy memories for me too, as the first motorbike I ever went on was my Uncle Richard’s 850cc Norton Commando when I was five-years-old! Sitting on the petrol tank as he slowly rode around the block and sealed my love for two wheels.

Also Waterloo Bridge – he didn’t leave her so there! She thought he was dead in the war 🤪😁

The Solution Audio Cover

Blurb

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.

Independent, introverted, and eager to please, all single dad Vincent is expecting when he flies in to attend his friend’s wedding is a good time… not an irresistible older omega 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.

Can he jeopardize his fresh start for a chance at love?

Alone his entire life, all Mal wants is to have a family. The solution? Take matters into his own hands…

Always a babysitter, never a dad, Mal has struggled with issues of self-worth his entire life, and at his age, he’s come to accept that he’s meant to be alone. Eager to have a family he can love, and who will love him back, he decides to pursue IVF and start a family on his own. But when his path intersects Vincent’s, he finds himself questioning whether love really is possible.

Mal is no stranger to the evil in men’s hearts. The only one he can trust is himself, isn’t it? But with kind and thoughtful Vincent, imagining a brighter future is a temptation that might prove too good to resist.

When life reunites their paths in unexpected ways after a sizzling one-night stand, Vincent and Mal are faced with a choice—let their forbidden connection keep them apart, or indulge in love and lust like they’ve never known it before.

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 will leave you hot beneath the collar, and a unique take on Daddy kink perfect for two men who don’t quite fit the mold.

You can also find out more about The White Lotus from Mal’s past in The Rutledge Brothers Series on Audio & Ebook.

Excerpt

“Synecta is a fantastic pharmaceutical company,” Dr. Biernacki said as he turned and proceeded down the hallway, deeper into the clinic. Mal followed him, letting the door close behind him. “I’m always very pleased with the work they do. It’s thorough and detailed, and for the most part, they stick to a stricter code than is mandated by law. It’s very commendable.”

Mal watched Dr. Biernacki’s lab coat swish around his slacks as he walked. Ethics were fine, but Mal was less concerned with them than the study’s results.

“And we’re here.” Dr. Biernacki knocked on the second to last door to the right, then twisted the knob and entered the room. Mal followed him inside, but stopped abruptly a few paces into the room. His eyes had fallen on the doctor hunched over a counter across the room—the one with brown hair that was long on the top and short on the sides, whose body was leanly muscular.

“Your attending physicians,” Dr. Biernacki announced joyfully. “Dr. Peterman, our esteemed pharmakineticist, and Dr. Heaney, the overseeing medical officer.” But Mal couldn’t bring himself to focus on the other doctors in the room—not when his heart was in his throat and his thoughts were running themselves in circles. “And, of course, the man of the hour—the talented reproductive endocrinologist and IVF specialist, Dr. Rhyne.”

Dr. Rhyne’s kind brown eyes met Mal’s. The color drained from his handsome face, and his lips tightened into a thin, emotionless line.

Mal stared back.

Vincent Wasserman, the man Mal had spent his heat with at Alex and Laurence’s wedding, stood no more than six feet away. He was the doctor who would monitor Mal’s progress and retrieve his eggs. The one who’d fertilize them and implant them once all was said and done.

Vincent Wasserman, who it seemed also went by Dr. Rhyne.

Mal’s knees went weak.

The man who’d called him Daddy was going to make him one.

About the Author

Piper Author Image

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 became the foundation of an intricate, interconnected world.

Left to her own devices, Piper writes scorching but heartfelt contemporary omegaverse romance about men you can’t help but fall in love with. Make sure to check out her contemporary gay romance alter-ego, Emma Alcott, for other great stories!

Brooks Johnson’s Words To Live By:

When returning to Licking Thicket, TN, for the first time in ten years to reunite with your nosy neighbors, heart-broken ex-girlfriend, and matchmaking mama who never quite believed you were gay, it’s best to bring a fake boyfriend as backup…

Just don’t be surprised when your ex-girlfriend does the same.

And when her incredibly hot fake boyfriend becomes the one island of calm in a sea of bovine-based insanity, it’s best to exercise caution… especially when he pushes you up against the rough barn wall to check you very thoroughly for splinters…

Just don’t be surprised if you fall head-over-hooves in love with him.

Excerpt

I slunk down the hall like I was a kid again, afraid of being caught, and I snuck glances at the backyard out the window to make sure my mother and Ava weren’t coming… which was how I nearly ran into a person standing in the hall by the kitchen.

“Oh my God!” I said, grabbing the person—a man, definitely a man, though much less bulky than me—by the shoulders. “I’m so sorry. I was, ah… distracted.”

And if I hadn’t been before, I certainly was once I got a look at him. Holy shit.

“No, sorry, my bad,” the guy said. He straightened his black T-shirt and brushed an unruly mop of wavy, brown-gold hair away from his magnetic blue eyes. “I was distracted too.”

He motioned toward the pictures on the hallway wall—a collection of bovine-inspired artwork my mother had begun before I was born—and shook his head wordlessly. I felt my face heat.

“Ah. Yeah, it’s quite a theme, isn’t it?” I said. “Cows in flower crowns?”

“I can’t tell if it’s horrible, or wonderful, or both.”

“Both,” I decided. “Most things are.”

He turned to give me a quick, startled smile, and I realized belatedly that while he’d been staring at the wall, I’d been staring at him.

Honestly, there was a lot to look at. Besides the sexy, untamed hair, the man had sharp, intelligent eyes that looked like they missed nothing, high, rounded cheekbones, a scruffy jaw, and plush, pink lips, like a master sculptor had perfectly softened all his other features to balance the intensity of his eyes. His body was lithe, leanly muscled, and delightfully warm. He had a little silver hoop in his left ear, a freckle in the hollow of his throat, and a stack of bracelets up one wrist. He could’ve been anywhere from fifteen to thirty years old. I felt a pulse of awareness in my gut.

Please don’t be fifteen, please don’t be fifteen.

“Are you okay?” he asked, frowning at me in concern.

Damn it all, I was still staring.

“Yeah, no, totally. Just, um.” I cleared my throat. My mother’s art display was the last place on earth I’d expected to meet someone as striking as this. Why did this have to happen while I was a giant, sweaty mess? “Making sure you are.”

“Oh.” His expression cleared, and his lips twitched. Apparently, I was still staring at his lips. “I’m fine. Except that I stepped out of the bathroom down here and this cow started staring into my soul.”

I had to force myself to look away from him and focus on the cow painting, but when I did…

I laughed out loud. “It really is. That cow knows exactly what you’re thinking right now.”

The man gasped, and the sound went straight to my balls. “You think? In that case, that cow needs to mind her fucking business before she gets corrupted.” He looked me up and down, from my messy, sweaty hair to my sneakers, and I’d swear the smile he gave me was pure flirtation.

The smile I gave him in return sure as hell was.

This kind of thing never happened to me. Ever.

“Have you ever seen a real cow?” I asked, because I was the fucking king of suave conversation.

Jesus Christ, how had I ever managed to have sex with anyone?

“A real cow? Obviously,” the guy said, folding his arms over his chest. I couldn’t help but notice the defined muscles in his chest and arms. He was shorter than I was but definitely not scrawny. Fuck he was sexy. He smirked. “Don’t I look like a country boy?”

I laughed, feeling all the stress from the day start to fall away.

About The Authors

lucy logo

After enjoying creative writing as a child, Lucy didn’t write her first novel until she was over 40 years old. Her debut novel, Borrowing Blue, was published in the autumn of 2016. Lucy has an English Literature degree from Vanderbilt University, but that doesn’t hold a candle to the years and years of staying up all night reading tantalizing novels on her own.

She has three children, plays tennis, and hates folding laundry. While her husband is no shmoopy romance hero, he is very good at math, cooks a mean lasagne, has gorgeous eyes, looks hot in his business clothes, and makes her laugh every single day.

Lucy hopes you enjoy sexy heroes as much as she does. Happy reading!
