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.
Reading this book, I thought to myself that this was lighter than I was used to from Penelope. I was wrong. All I’ll say on this is you can expect the angst and plot twist as usual and this is the thing I love and crave from a Penelope Ward book. It’s different from her others, but still has the same intensity of angst in the later half. True to form, I fell in love with Mackenzie a.k.a Mack Daddy, as I have with all the heroes she writes. He was hilarious, quirky, sweet and sexy as hell.
I loved the concept of this book and totally related to Frankie. The way she was written was so normal, and it felt like the ugly duckling had turned into the Swan. True love never dies and this book is the perfect example of that. It’s a great work of Fiction and I highly recommend it.
