Mack Daddy
Penelope Ward
February 11,2017

Single Dad. Second Chances. Meet Mack in the newest STANDALONE novel from New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward. 

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 became a woman I didn't recognize, someone 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 someone else 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.

This book combined two of my favorite types of romance, friends to lovers and second chance romance. Mack and Frankie had a great friendship that never really had a chance to bloom into more, even though they were always a little bit more than friends. Mack ruins everything between them, although he is only trying to do the right thing in other aspects of his life. When their paths cross again later in life Mack is determined to right the mistakes he’s made in the past and win Frankies heart. I loved the alternating points of view between Frankie and Mack as well as the shift from past to present. I love being in both characters heads and also having the past revealed slowly and deliberately. It’s this type of story telling that makes this book unable to put down. Once you begin, you cannot stop as you need to know not only what will happen, but what happened in the past to bring them to this point. One of the best aspects of the story is seeing Mack with his son. He is not a perfect father, but he is trying so hard to do right by his son. While this is mostly a light fun read, there is a fair amount of angst and conflict. The buildup between Mack and Frankie makes for lots of passion when they finally do get together. There is also a great little plot twist at the end that will leave your jaw hanging on the floor! 5 Stars and a Boston Cooler! Enjoy!
