From New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward, comes a sexy, STANDALONE second-chance romance.
They called him Mack Daddy. No, seriously, his name was Mack. Short for Mackenzie.
Thus, the nickname. Perfect, right?
So was he: perfect. The perfect physical male specimen.
At the private school where I taught, Mack Morrison was the only man around in a sea of women.
Everyone wanted a piece of the hot single father of the sweet little boy. I was riddled with jealousy, because they didn’t know that—to me—he was much more.
They didn’t know about our past.
He’d chosen my school for his son on purpose, because Mack and I, we had unfinished business.
As my friend Lorelai so eloquently put it: “Unfinished business between two people who are clearly attracted to each other is like an eternal case of blue balls.” And I was suffering in pain from my case.
I was still intensely attracted to Mack. I tried to resist him, immersing myself further into a relationship with another man just to protect my heart.
Not to mention, getting involved with a parent was strictly against school rules. But seeing Mack day in and day out was breaking me down.
And soon I might be breaking all the rules.
Author's note – Told in alternating points of view, Mack Daddy is a full-length standalone novel.
Review by Lorena
The feels, emotions, twists and turns that you will get with this book will leave you grasping for more. It's one of those books that will leave you wanting more, more and more and you'll find yourself unable to put the book down until you've reached the end.
It's no surprise that Penelope Ward has given me another great book. She is one of my top favorite to read, if not the top author. I fell in love with her work because she has a way with her books, a way that will leave you always wanting more and not wanting the books to end and making you feel emotions that you didn't think you could while reading a book.
Mack and Frankie had such a unique relationship, their chemistry was undeniable from the moment they met.
I always think that a book about best friends falling in love is cute, but this one took the cake especially since he was a single dad. It broke my heart that he didn't have the kid with Frankie but sometimes you get stuck in situations that you can't seem to find a way out and that's exactly what happened with Mack and how he ended up with his son Jonah.
But Frankie loved kids and she definitely had a way to ease children when they had anxiety or any other type of problem. This is why she was a great teacher.
Mack and Frankie were totally meant for each other and the struggles and the hardships they had to endure was well worth it in the end.
A top 4.5 star read for me (sigh!)
