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.

Whew this book is an emotional roller coaster ride from start to finish. I was not prepared for the amount of angst in this book and believe me it brings out all the feels. I wanted to laugh, scream, cry, and throw my kindle a few times.
Mack and Frankie knew each other back in college and back before life got complicated, but it’s been years and now Frankie is face to face with the man who ripped her heart out. She wasn’t expecting Mack to enter her life again, but he is determined to remind Frankie of the feelings they left behind. Frankie’s life is good at the moment. She has a good teaching job and a man who adores her, while Mack’s life is full of baggage. But Mack brings out old emotions Frankie thought she buried, and Mack isn’t backing down without a fight.
Be ready because this book has lots of surprises and twists and turns. I literally felt my heart breaking at times for both Mack and Frankie. We get the back-story of these two and it only brings out so many more emotions. There were a few times I was pissed at both Mack and Frankie. Let me just say I really hope maybe one day some of the side characters get a book as well. Overall, this book is good and it kept my heart racing and kept me biting my nails. The sexual tension and chemistry between these two is one hell of a build up, but when it happens… BOOM it’s magical.
