Review: Mack Daddy by Penelope Ward

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.

4 'Just believe what it's telling you.' Stars.

Get ready to sizzle and swoon! Penelope Ward is back with a new tantalizing, addictive book! Panties will get wet, hearts will beat harder and faster, and laughter will most definitely be had. Mack Daddy is a damn fine time of a read! Oh, YES! Yes! Yesssssss! It's DILF time, ladies!!!

I'm huge on opening lines, they set the tone of the book for me and let me tell you this one is epic!! I knew I was in for a fun and sexy adventure after only reading twelve words. Gah! Penelope Ward and her freaking genius author brain has rendered me speechless again!

"We all have that one person. It's not necessarily someone we end up with. But it's that person who, for whatever reason, gets under your skin and stays there. You can move on, but parts of them are always with you. Sometimes, if things never had a chance to develop, if feelings are are still unresolved, that person becomes and even more powerful force in your life, even in absentia."

As always, I prefer to dive in as blind as I can and I have to say this story line played out like none of the ideas that were floating around in my head. Based off the title alone... Well, those ideas aren't fit to be read LOL. Mack Daddy was so much more than I had ever imagined. The play on the title alone is something else *goofy grin*

The feelings and emotions felt throughout the story... I just can't even. Seriously. Mack and Frankie are perfect! There's so much sizzle and swoon to their slow burn-esque romance. The highs and lows, twists and turns, baggage and drama. My heart soared, it also bled and broke at times. From past to present you get the full meal deal in this book, topped with a mighty hot cover. Dayum!

'Yes. Unfinished business between two people who are clearly attracted to each other is like an eternal case of blue balls.'

They've come a long way from relationship 1.0 to relationship 2.0, each with their own personal growth, still yearning and holding on to the love of the one that slipped away.

Penelope Ward never fails to disappoint! Her one of a kind story lines and epic romances are always welcome on my bookshelf <3 br="">
"I guess you don't really understand what it feels like to truly connect with someone until it happens. You think what you've experienced up until a certain point is all there is. Then, someone comes along and rocks your world, and you realized you didn't know shit about shit."

 Mackenzie AKA…DILF …AKA…Mack Daddy is definitely one of the most swoon worthy characters I have across in a while. My goodness this man was sarcastic, self`-assured , humorous and hot all rolled into one. From his younger devilish self to his older more confident, commanding self. He was just simply amazing. Any woman would fall in love with him. Every time he spoke he either gave my butterflied or melted my heart.

“I see you’re still spilling white substances on yourself.”

Mack loved Frankie with his whole heart. For him she is THE ONE and he is going to stop at nothing to win her over. These two were the absolute cutest couple ever. They truly loved one another but the stars just never seemed to line up for them.

“I remember everything, and depending on the day, that’s either a curse or a blessing.”

Their love was that one of kind love that some people only dream about and it completely stoke my heart. I was deeply vested in their story right from the very beginning. Penelope most certainly has another huge hit on her hands. This is one story you won’t want to miss out on!

“Sometimes, the more difficult road leads to the greatest destination.”
