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 ✮☆
Mack Daddy was an okay read for me. It was a story of second chances and fighting for your own happily ever after. Mack and Frankie have a past history together and have always felt a spark for one another. Only problem was, is that one was always romantically unavailable. When they first met, Mack had a serious girlfriend and now years later, it is Frankie who is in a serious relationship.
Now with Mack back in Frankie's life, with a young son in tow, and trying to win her over, it is a matter of mending fences, making a final decision of the heart, and countering external forces that seek to tear these two apart. Will Frankie choose to leave her steady beau for Mack? Will Mack finally get the only girl who's ever made his heart skip a beat? What about Mack's baby momma and Mack's father's powerful political influences? Not to mention, Frankie's teaching job? If she were to entertain dating the father of her student, how would that affect her?
I have to say, I almost decided to not finish this one. Not that I disliked it, I just don't care anymore to indulge in 'angsty' situations with messy love triangles, in this case it was kind of like a square, and having a child in the mix of it. The reason I did decide to finish this novel ultimately, was simply out of the intention to find out what happened in the end. That was it really.
I'm not saying that this book was bad or anything. It was just not my cup of tea after all.
Anyway, I'm sure others will take love and joy in this, so if you're curious, then jump on in and have a blast. This novel was just not for me.
