(Single Dads 4)
by RJ Scott
Release - March 29th, 2021
Lives change in an instant, but with family found and forever love, there is always hope.
Impetuously putting his life on the line, Adam saved a child trapped in a car wreck and suffered career-ending injuries. Living with chronic pain, and at his lowest moments, he had friends who wouldn't let him give up, a family who had his back, and even though his future was different from what he'd always planned, he at least had hope. When Cameron and Finn land on his doorstep, he never dreamed that he would fall in love with the small family or that maybe he'd get to be a hero again.
Cameron goes from being a devoted husband to a single dad overnight. With his neatly planned future in ruins, he will do anything to make a new life for his son, even if it means moving to the other side of the country. Renting a room from Adam is the first step in making a home for him and Sam, but falling for the former firefighter was never part of the plan.
The shadows from Cameron's past might take a long time to touch this fragile future, but will he have to face the consequences alone when they do? Or will there always be hope?
Always has a double dose of hurt/comfort with some starting over thrown in, and it’s all done without becoming overly angsty. Adam is healing from his injuries, and Cameron from his broken heart and the loss of what he thought was his family (though things weren’t picture perfect for a while). It’s the perfect setup for some mutual healing, with the constant background reminder that Cam and his son Finn won’t be staying as Cam has his sights set on a different life for them where no one from his time in New York can find him.
Of course you know the close proximity of Adam and Cam in the same home helps to ramp things up, but both men have hurdles to clear while they each find their way back to some semblance of normal in their lives. Cam is always the protective father, wanting to make sure that Finn never has to deal with the issue that caused them to leave New York. Finn is also very protective of his dad, and is definitely older and wiser than his years. To be honest, Finn was my favorite character ;-)
I liked that nothing was rushed, and that both men had time to heal without any cure-all being thrown into the mix to speed things up. The pace was just right for healing and for falling for each other. The bit of drama thrown in near the end was expected at some point, but pretty quickly handled so it felt like only a blip in the overall story.
It was great being able to see the characters from the previous books, and I’m already looking forward to Nick’s story. Always was a truly enjoyable read, and is getting 4.5 stars from me. This book is for readers 18+ for adult language and sexual content.
