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.ADD TO GOODREADS
Review by Gia
Mack Daddy is a great read. Frankie is a first grade teacher. Frankie is really a cool chick. She's a spunky character. Mack has a son is Frankie's class. I loved how her co worker called him a DILF. That had me laughing right off the bat because when I work in a preschool I had a coworker who at the beginning of the school year would ask who's that hot dad this year. That was the connection that pulled me into the story. Beside being super hot, Mack is a good guy. He's sweet and nice.
Mack and Frankie aren't strangers. They have a past. They were roommates in college. We get flashbacks to the past, which definitely provides some funny parts. They had feelings for each other back then but the timing wasn't right. Mack's back in town and he has his eyes and heart set on Frankie. This time though Frankie has a boyfriend, Victor. I felt a little bad for Victor because Frankie and Mack's connection is so much stronger then what he has with Frankie. I was so hoping Frankie would figure out her feeling for Mack.
Frankie and Mack work on being friend again with the hopes of more. I loved Mack's stories he read when visiting Frankie's class. Mack has an ex, Torrie. Torrie is a piece of work. I didn't feel bad for her at all. Thing come out about Torrie that makes her an easy character not to like. There are twists that pop up throughout the story that where expected and surprising.
I would definitely recommend this one.
