 Mack Daddy

Penelope Ward



February 13th 2017







Single Dad. Second Chances. Meet Mack in the newest STANDALONE novel from New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward. 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 became a woman I didn’t recognize, someone 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 someone else 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 love Penelope Wards writing and that is no secret – so her having a new release is me surely reading it. And again “Mack Daddy” was a solid read but I have to admit that the spark was missing in it for me.


I am used to a certain little something in her books and that little thing was not there. Maybe I am spoiled by her writing together with Vi Keeland because in those books the sparks just fly all over the place at any given time but I am pretty sure that she also has that fire when writing alone, because “Stepbrother Dearest” is still by far the best Stepbrother Romance I have read until now.


I guess the missing spark is all on me because my expectations when I hear her name are not high – oh no – they are skyscraping – yeah you get it. Its like … bad mood – grab a “Ward-Book” … like she has the cure to anything…hahaha…


Anyway while it will not be my favorite book by this author it is a solid an enjoyable read that is easy to recommend
