A STARLET REVIEW: MACK DADDY BY PENELOPE WARD

Synopsis:

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 Review

What’s better than a gorgeous, smooth talking, smooth worthy book boyfriend? Add in a single Dad who’s loved the same awkward, quirky girl since college and you will fall in LOVE with Mack Daddy.

Francesca (Frankie) O’Hara and Mackenzie (Mack) Morrison meet in college when Frankie becomes Mack’s room mate. Complete strangers, they quickly become friends and spend all their free time together. They make a pact to help each other with personal issues that both have. Mack sees something in Frankie she doesn’t see in herself. Frankie believes in Mack and accepts him for who he really is. Soon they realize, friendship is not all that is forming. The connection between them becomes undeniable but there is an issue- Mack has a long time girl friend.

This story had me swooning from beginning to end. Mack is everything I LOVE in a book boyfriend  and Penelope knows how I like ‘em. His dirty mouth had me squirming often and then tension was so thick, I could hardly stand it.

Four stars for Mack Daddy. It was *almost* a five star read but the story drug some in a couple of parts for me. Probably because I wanted more Mack Daddy/Frankie banter in the second half of the book but I still absolutely loved this story!
