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.
Penelope Ward has another stunning new novel that is going to be another trendsetter. Single daddy, adorable little boy, a complex past with the teacher, and the determination to win the love of his life’s heart back… Mack Daddy is steaming up the classroom.
Francesa (Frankie) O’ Hara never dreamed she would see MacKenzie Morrison again after he left Boston. When he turns up in her first grade classroom with his six year old son,Jonah, she’s shocked and a bit bewildered. She has an unfinished history with Mack that left her broken hearted. Now he’s back wanting to renew their friendship and win her heart.
Mack has always loved Frankie. They never had the opportunity to explore their feelings because he didn’t take control of his life at home. He didn’t break up with his old girlfriend soon enough and she ended up pregnant. He couldn’t turn his back on his child. His father wouldn’t allow him to tarnish the Morrison name. Seven years later, he’s taken control, he’s no longer with Jonah’s mother. Fate has thrown him a bone when Jonah’s mother, Torrie, takes a job in Boston. He’s finally free to renew his friendship with Frankie.
Mack’s son has special circumstances that he feels like Frankie can help with. Jonah suffers from anxiety and tends to withdraw within himself. Mack wants the best for his son. He’s a hands on father and volunteers regularly in Jonah’s class.
Frankie and Mack renew their friendship and realize their feelings never went away. How do they take their relationship to the next level when Frankie is Jonah’s teacher and she’s involved in a committed relationship? Mack’s ex, Torrie, is not happy with the situation developing between her son’s teacher and father. She will do anything to protect her son, including using Mack’s father’s political power to destroy Frankie.
Mack and Frankie are going to have to fight for their love. This time around they are mature adults and can handle anything Torrie and his father throw at them.
Once again Penelope Ward wrote a fantastic book with all the “feels”. I could not put it down. I am sure this is going to be another trendsetter like Stepbrother Dearest and Roomhate.
