They called him Mack
Daddy. No, seriously, his name was Mack. Short for Mackenzie.
Thus, the nickname.
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
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
I loved Frankie and
Mack. When Mack brings his son Jonah to the private school that Frankie teaches
at you can see the instant sparks. Something happened in their past and it
seemed like it did not end well. Mack is super-hot so every single mother wants
him and Frankie is trying her best to stay away. She's the quirky, different,
nerdy girl that Mack has a history with, but she’s the only woman he trusts
with his son.
There are some
characters in this book that I wanted to stab with a spoon, a rusty spoon. I
mean they are vile, evil people. All I wanted was for Karma to come back and
bite them big time. The pain and angst that Frankie and Mack had to go through
was heartbreaking. They both had their own issues to work past and then add in
these nasty people, I just wanted to hurt them.
I guess that’s why I
loved the book so much. There was a ton of emotions in it and the love Frankie
and Mack have is the real thing. The drama, hurt, and pain that Frankie, Mack
and Jonah had to endure only made their story more special. I read the book in
1 day because I had to know what happened, but I also didn’t want it to end.
