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.

My thoughts...

Mackenzie 'Mack' Morrison and Francesca 'Frankie' O'Hara meet when they become roommates while attending college.  Their first encounter ends up being Frankie’s most humiliating moment but these two form a fast friendship and soon develop deeper feelings between them.

They keep things platonic as Mack has a girlfriend living in D.C.  As the time comes for Mack to move out and head back to D.C., they both can no longer deny their true feelings for each other.  Mack’s plan is to break up with his girlfriend back home and then come back to Frankie as a free man.  Frankie never hears from Mack again, which leaves her heartbroken.

Now after eight years, Mack is back in Frankie's life determined to get her back.  He is now a father and Frankie is his son’s teacher.  Frankie can’t believe her eyes when she comes face to face with the man that left her and broke her heart. 

I would most definitely recommend Mack Daddy to anyone who loves second chance romance and friends to lovers’ stories. 

Happy Reading ~ Jovi
