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.
I am always searching for well-written romance novels showcasing a single father as the hero. They make the greatest leading men, right? Especially when the unattached dads are responsible, loving, invested, and extremely good-looking. Sign me up! A huge shout out to Penelope Ward for handing over the type of fictional character I haven’t spent nearly as much time with lately.
Mack Morrison checks all of the boxes and I fell in lust with him instantly. He is such a devoted father and my heart melted with his genuine concern for his son. Mack still has plenty of room in his life for “the one that got away” and he has ever intention of getting her this time around. I was rooting for him from the very start because Mack is simply adorable! His chapters were my favorite and I loved experiencing the story through his perspective.
Frankie is no shrinking violet and she easily kept up with Mack’s exuberant personality. I greatly appreciated her strong voice throughout this journey. Frankie’s transformation that is brought up frequently was a great way for readers to become more dedicated. Her role as a teacher made me like her even more. She added so much depth and positive attitude!
As a pair, Mack and Frankie cause nonstop sparks. I was eager for them to finally get together but I also enjoyed the slow build up. It just was just the right amount of wait time to keep me hooked. There are so much secondary plots going on that I always had something catching my attention.
If you are looking for a spectacular read that is packed full with glorious love and romance, make sure to gran Mack Daddy! You will not be disappointed!!!
