The Single Dad and His Soulmate is the seventh book in The Hedonist series by author Rebecca James. I have not read the previous books in this series; I can tell there are characters in this book that were from previous books. But other than that, I was not lost at all. I do think serious readers of this series would love this story too.
Flynn he and Matteo were once lovers. But Matteo could not give Flynn what he needed so Flynn left. Now he is back, and Matteo must make a hard choice. Take a chance on love or walk away forever.
Matteo is part of the MC biker gang Hedonist. He takes care of his grandmother. Duty, respect, and family are what matter to him. He is gay but he is afraid to tell his fragile grandmother.
Flynn owns Flynn’s Stones. He is back from New York. He has a son now and is way to busy to date. Flynn is a responsible person with a good heart he just was too close to the situation to see it properly.
Overall a great story. I loved Matteo and Flynn they are a great team. I would love to read more in this series in the future and go back and read the stories I missed.
Five Shooting Stars
Kudos to this author for an ending where our two main characters are together forever, but also an ending that acknowledges that in the real world, happiness is always tinged by sadness. Not everything works out nicely for everyone and not all people are able to come out to their entire family in a way that will satisfy everyone. This is a book that acknowledges the pain and devastation that coming out can cause. This is a great second chance romance that also has a biker character, some lovely bonding between a child and the parent's love interest to make a family and some really hot and steamy love scenes. I have not read previous volumes in this series, but you can bet I will after this one. I believed in the complex reality these characters live in and I hope the rest of the series continues in the same way.
