The Ideal Man

Julie Garwood






Ellie Sullivan is a beautiful, young surgeon who seems to have everything going for her.  However, the story behind the smile is one of a tormented childhood.  At age 11, she was stalked and attacked by an older boy in the neighborhood.  This happened several times, but the charges never stuck and he has been in and out of treatment centers ever since.  Ellie leads a very quiet, private life far from her family to avoid being a target.

One day, while out for a jog, she witnesses a murder.  FBI detective, Max Daniels, is on the scene.  While instantly attracted to each other, Max assigns himself as her bodyguard while the FBI tries to catch the criminals.

Ellie returns to her childhood home for her sister's wedding, and once again she finds herself face to face with her childhood nemesis AND the hit man hired to kill her!  Can Max really protect her from all the bad guys? 

This book is a pleasure from start to finish.  Max and Ellie are witty, smart, and a wonderful couple.  And Max really is the "ideal man".  You won't want to put this book down!
