Tyler had one job to do: keep the boss’s daughter happy. As an advertising executive by day, and a ladies' man by night, it didn’t seem all that difficult, in his mind. Especially when a promotion was in order.

Enter Madison Lee. As a tough business woman and owner of the lingerie company Black Lace, she has seen her fair share of losers looking to get her attention for nothing more than a one-night-stand. In her mind, Tyler is no different.

Can Tyler prove to her that he is a good man, unlike all the rest?

Two beautiful, rich, successful, work-oriented people, Tyler Gipson and Madison Lee Winters, strike sparks off each other at their first encounter and keep at it with determination as they struggle with unresolved issues in their past that bedevil them. Another attribute they share is the unwillingness to forgive, an attribute that threatens to steal their change at happiness.

Tyler, a New York ad company executive, still playing an adolescent game with his maturity-challenged friends, gets punched in the jaw by Madison, his boss’s daughter who is the owner of a very profitable company in Los Angeles that she built from scratch. His mouth-watering good looks and winsome ways make him prey for predatory women, but he knows the pitfalls and uses his charm for business and pleasure. Years ago, a devastating experience with a woman that cost him a good job and estranged him from his family taught Tyler a hard lesson. He is cautious and upfront about “no commitment” with the women he enjoys. This worked for ten years then Madison set his world on its ear.

Madison, bitter about the faithlessness of men, is known as the Ice Princess. Determine to never let another man close enough to hurt her; she wreaks havoc on her own life and on the lives of others. Her sister Jasmine is the only exception. Seemingly trapped on a merry-go-round of proofing she needs nobody, Madison hiding her caring, loving side and makes life miserable. Her inability to forgive warps her judgment to a scary point.

Conflicts, humor, emotional upheavals, and a fair amount of manipulating along with some high-flying loves scenes make One Good Man thrilling and attention keeping.

Lexie Davis packs a tremendous amount into this short novel about One Good Man and one awesome woman, to give the reader a delightful story.
