Review – Mack Daddy by Penelope Ward


Mack Daddy by Penelope Ward


Holy crap! I now understand the meaning behind #MackAttack. Penelope Ward’s new magnificent masterpiece attacked my heart, my mind, my soul and heightened all my senses.

Everything about Mack Daddy is sweet and seductive. I couldn’t get enough of this book. Couldn’t get enough of the deep, sizzling tension that RIPPED through me while I read. Right now I’m literally BUZZING. I’m pretty sure my blood is on fire, my heart’s definitely pumping hard and fast. If there is one thing Penelope Ward has mastered during her career it’s developing AND DELIVERING angst in a way that’s believable and full of feels. That blissful, burn is something I’ve come to expect from a Ward book and once again Penelope SMASHED IT.

There was something really refreshing about the main characters in Mack Daddy. Frankie is written flawlessly. She’s really funny and sassy. Despite her “flaws”, Frankie called to something deep in me, I could relate to her in some ways, I totally connected.
Mack was EVERYTHING I needed. Everything I wanted. Mack’s seductive side meshed so well with his vulnerable, sweet side. His whole being brought me to my knees, his love and devotion, his cockyness, all of him just hit every single spot!

As well as Penelope knowing how to write angst, she ALWAYS delivers a character connection that runs just as deep. From the off, Frankie and Mack pull together like magnets. Penelope just knows how to write the most SPECTACULAR feelings and emotions into her words and how to allow her reader to get it, feel it and LOVE IT.

Mack Daddy is electric, endearing and one of those books that just fills you up. The feels will start at the very tips of you and slowly, breathtakingly fill your whole body until you’re floating in beautiful, bookworm bliss.




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.
