Only A Good Man Will Do by Dee S. Knight
Daniel Goodman is one of a set of triplets—natural, identical triplets, a rare kind of birth. He is a serious man, often feeling estranged from his wild and carefree brother Jonah and his free-spirited parents. He’s also distanced from his other brother Mark, a genius who might or might not realize that he’s unlike most other people and doesn’t seem to care.
Daniel is a man on a mission. For years he has striven for perfection, fighting for the pinnacle of achievement in his world of academia—Headmaster of Westover Academy. Westover, established before the American Revolution, is still one of the most prestigious schools in the country. They accept only boys whose parents fit a certain mold and only those teachers who hold to a stringent set of mores, on and off campus. Jonah considers his brother a prig. Daniel sees himself as doing his best to serve his students. How much better can he serve them as headmaster? That is what he seeks to find out.
Suddenly, into his cut and dried, strictly black and white life of moral and upright behavior, comes Eve Star, formerly one of Europe’s foremost exotic dancers. Her life is anything but cut and dried, black and white. Bad enough that she’s enrolled her son in Westover Academy under false pretenses. More, she runs the town’s most disreputable bar. Worse, much to Daniel’s dismay, he finds himself drawn to her like a kid to chocolate. Nothing good can come of this attraction. Or can it? He is, after all, a good man.
Only A Good Man Will Do by Dee S. Knight is an incredible story of two unlikely people falling in love. In this highly emotional and sizzling hot story we have Daniel Goodman, a teacher, striving to become the headmaster of an elite, all boys’ school. He is a perfectionist and lives by a high moral standard and sets a great example for his students to conduct themselves by. Daniel is a good man that has made a set of rules that he adheres to and lives by. He is one, of a set of triplets that are identical in looks, but different in many ways. The school only accepts boys whose parents are upstanding and who fit the same high standard that the school, and its teachers, live by.
Enter Eve Star, a former erotic dancer that owns and operates a, known to be sleazy, bar. She is basically socially unacceptable. But, she would do anything for her son and must make tough decisions regarding him. She lives by a set of rules also, mainly to never trust men. Daniel finds himself extremely attracted to Eve, his direct opposite to his stark rule of perfect behavior. Daniel becomes entwined with Eve Star, and after many unsavory facts are revealed about her, he must figure out and decide if he wants to risk and possibly jeopardize his life and goals. What will come of this couple’s heated and emotional attraction to one another? You must read this unbelievable story to find out what transpires with this unlikely match.
Only A Good Man Will Do is a fabulous story written by an exceptional author, Dee S. Knight. Her character development is extraordinary and full of likable characters with interesting personalities. I was drawn into the story from the very first chapter and connected with the characters and their different takes on life. The way that author Dee S. Knight wrote the dialog between the characters is brilliant. Daniel’s confusion and dilemma, and way of figuring it all out, was written beautifully and very well understandable.
Daniel and Eve’s story of being complete opposites tells the importance of not judging a book by its cover. The sexual heat in this novel runs high. It is very engaging and had me thinking, “how could it be that this highly moral man could indulge in such fantasies?” I loved it! And, Dee S. Knight writes it so well. The descriptive writing is extraordinary and had me on the scene watching on as the story unfolded. I was fully engrossed and held on for the entire run with this couple’s journey and discovery into emotional and physical love.
