The Ideal Man Julie Garwood Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

A woman’s life and love are compromised in this pulse-pounding thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood.

Dr. Ellie Sullivan has witnessed the shooting of an FBI agent in pursuit of a ruthless modern-day Bonnie and Clyde. The only person to see the shooter’s face, Ellie is suddenly thrust into the center of a criminal investigation spearheaded by the no-nonsense, by-the-book, and tantalizingly handsome agent Max Daniels.

When the couple is captured, she’ll be called to testify. But the Landrys have been caught before, and each time the witnesses are scared into silence—or they disappear. Now Max vows to be Ellie’s shadow, promising never to leave her side until the trial. But that could be dangerous for both of them, and it isn’t long before the sparks—and the bullets—fly.

User reviews about this book

  • Choppy and not romantic

    By hfsgbdds)742
    I forced myself to finish reading this book. It is not romantic. That was a let down. It was putting one night stands and meaningless sex up on a pedi stool. It was also very choppy. There would be so much dialogue in meaningless stuff, but then the last several chapters were just large concluding summaries so the book could hurry up and be finished. It seems like the author was just tired of writing. The first 4/5 of the book happens over a few days, then the last 1/5 is jumping months in between each page.
  • Great read

    By Rostsbf
    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It had drama,action, and romance. I could not put it down.
  • The Ideal Man

    By Sam The Puppet Man 1951
    I have read a lot of romance and this one hit the target for me. Great characters, great action and a great read. It's one I've reread several times now and that's always a good sign.
  • Perfect one day read

    By Tanya Robinson
    I started this book on a rainy afternoon and was hooked within a couple of pages. It was a well written story that made the characters jump off the pages and into your mind. Great writer and I couldn't put the book down!
  • Standard beach read

    By liberteabelle
    Looking for an escape? This'll do it for you. Easy, warm. Last hundred pages are rushed to tie all story lines to the fairy tale ending.
  • the ideal man (?)

    I've been a fan of this author for a long time, but this book was nothing but a waste of time for me, and an easy way for her to make money.
  • Suspenseful in more ways than one!

    By China Tea Lady
    Julie Garwood really took her romance and danger to a new level! It was suspense and surprise around every corner until the very end! I couldn't put it down!
  • Blue cricket

    By Cricket@law
    Very well written... I aspire to write so well! This story had an even mix of everything a person could ask for in a contemporary fiction piece, nicely done!
  • The ideal man

    By Megalard
    Just one more reason I love Julie Garwood. This is one I'll read over and over.
  • Not believable

    By Yawn_Bored
    I used to read every Julie Garwood book that came out, but haven't done so in a few years. After reading the reviews for this one, I decided to check her newer stuff out, and had pretty high expectations because I always loved her books before. But this book is not only boring, but Ellie is too 'perfect' to be believable. She's gorgeous and blonde, a prodigal genius, loves sports center, beer, and football (even plays on multiple fantasy leagues, even though she barely has time to sleep because she's so busy being a brilliant surgeon), and falls right asleep after mind blowing sex, unlike all the other obnoxious females who want to-GASP!-cuddle and talk after sex. She's just a male fantasy, and doesn't have any depth. As for the rest of the book, it's just one cliche after another, and the conversations are really contrived, as well as having out of date phrases. Not worth it, move on.
