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.
I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, surprises, suspense, and heartbreak.
This is Frankie and Mack (Mackenzie)’s story. Frankie and Mack were roommate that might have turned into more if he was not already with someone. Now years later they meet up again when Mack enrolls his son in the school she teaches. Mack is determined to get the chance to love Frankie like he has wanted to for all these years. But there are obstacles in the way this time around too. She is involved with someone already; his ex is not happy with them being together and someone is digging up dirt on her family. Can these two get there shot? When secrets are exposed with either of them ever be the same? Will they eve have a future together or was this a dream that was never going to come true? Will they fight for a chance to be together this time?
I loved these characters and the side characters. I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.
I recommend this book.
