#NewRelease MACK DADDY by @PenelopeAuthor is NOW available! #mustread #oneclick @InkSlingerPR
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.
I have to admit that I was counting down the days until this book showed up on my Kindle. I was beyond excited because well 1 – Penelope Ward and 2 – THIS cover!!! One of this author’s hottest covers yet! And I have to say as well that my expectations were sky high, really, really. So while I did enjoy this book and it definitely kept me reading well into the night, there was just something about it that didn’t quite sit well with me. I’m all about second chance romance novels and of course throw in a HOT Dad and I am done for! Mack Daddy has both.
Mack Daddy starts of really great! I was hooked immediately but somewhere between the first half of the book and the second half it sort of lost me. I really enjoyed the first half… the reconnection, the flashbacks, and the obvious chemistry between the two. However, the entire time I kept thinking WHEN are they FINALLY going to get together because HOLY ANGST! That and I just couldn’t understand in the flashback why Mack kept Torrie around for so long when it was clear he was in love with Frankie. So many questions and not enough answers.
I powered through the angst and Ms. Ward kept me on my toes. Then the last 30% or so happened in kind of turned into a bit of a mess, a very entertaining mess, but still a mess. LOL! Bottom line… Mack Daddy is definitely a book that you want to check out and form your own opinion on. It will keep you reading, it will keep you intrigued, but whether it leaves you satisfied…well that’s on you. I love this author and I will continue to read her work because I am positive some awesomeness it coming soon!
