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.
Mack Daddy was a great 5 star read.
This is Mack and Frankie’s story told in alternating POV and jumps between past and present.
Frankie and Mack originally met in college when their mutual friend Moses invited her to move in with them. Frankie and Mack grew very very close but never crossed the line. Mack was in a committed relationship but he was starting to feel like she wasn’t the one, that Frankie was. Something happened that caused Mack to move forward without Frankie.
We jump ahead a few years to Frankie as a teacher. She is shocked to see Mack at the school with his son. What is he doing here? Mack hasn’t been able to put Frankie out of his mind and now he has a chance to finally get her back in his life. Frankie is in a long term relationship with an older man, however that doesn’t prevent Mack from pursuing her.
Tell me about the old guy you’re living with. His balls still in good shape? How low do they hang?
Will Mack get Frankie back? Can they have a HEA? What happens when the past comes back to haunt them?
There is so much more that happens. Several twists and shocking surprises. I really enjoyed the secondary characters. Mrs. M, Mack’s neighbor was my favorite, I had some LOL moments with her. The connection between Frankie and Mack was off the charts hot and I have to say I would have been mortified if I went through what Frankie did in the bathroom with the clogged toilet, OMG. Once you get started you won’t want to put it down. This was a great second chance romance, I highly suggest you 1-click and get started.
