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.

Well it wouldn’t be a Penelope Ward book if my emotions hadn’t been put through the wringer.
I know I have said this in the past, but I absolutely LOVE Penelope’s books. Even though they are filled with some major angst and heartbreak, she always manages to put my heart back together and leave me with a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart. Penelope has the amazing talent to create a story that will have you laughing, swooning, yelling and crying all within the same chapter. But that is what keeps the reader on the edge of their seat while reading her books. She also is great for creating drama and angst without it being to over the top. I never find myself rolling my eyes or getting aggravated when I read her books.
Mack Daddy is Penelope’s latest standalone novel. It is told in Dual POV, which I loved and was something new for her, and is a second chance romance. I love how this story unfolded. Primarily told in the present time, she did give us some chapters that were flashbacks to Mack and Frankie’s past and how they met. I thought this was the perfect way to have their story unfold for the readers.
This is a fairly quick read, but it’s because you won’t be able to put it down once you start. Frankie and Mack’s story was an addicting one 🙂 As I said I thought the flow and pace of this story was spot on. Her stories flow effortlessly and her characters sink into my heart that I can’t help but feel like I am a part of their world. As you may or may not know, when it comes to reviewing Penelope’s books, I don’t go into detail about the storyline very much, because she writes books that you need to go in blind to and experience all the turmoil, love and romance for oneself.
What I will tell you is that this book is completely a standalone novel and brand new characters we have never met before in Penelope’s world. It is a second chance romance with the spin of a friends to lovers story. We also got an amazing single father storyline in this book. Penelope basically wrapped all my favorite things in a book into this one book. We meet Mack, Frankie and Jonah (Mack’s son) in this story. Mack and Frankie knew each other in the past….during their college years. They grew to be friends over their year living together as roommates. Then things happen and they lose contact for 8 years. Now Mack is back in her life. But so much has changed!!! Will Frankie and Mack be able to reconnect?? Can Frankie forgive Mack for the past?? Will Mack be able to get out of his families clutches?? Read this book to find out all those answers and more!!!!
So if you are a fan of Penelope’s you don’t want to miss this book. And if she is a new author to you…Mack Daddy is a GREAT place to start your love for her books. Because once you read one of her books you will be hooked!!!!
