“The Ideal Man turned out to be the ideal contemporary romance. As one site put it Heroines in the contemporary romances written after 1970 usually have, and keep, a career and contemporary romance novels have grown to contain more complex plotting and more realistic characters.
All of which are found in "The Ideal Man". Summary on the book jacket :"Dr. Ellie Sullivan has witnessed the shooting of an FBI agent in pursuit of a ruthless modern-day Bonnie and Clyde known as the Landrys. 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."
Dr. Ellie Sullivan has been stalked and attacked by a madman and lived through that trauma to become a trauma surgeon. After a long day in surgery she goes out for a run only to find herself dogging bullets and involved in an F.B.I. Investigation. The only thing moving faster than the bullets is her heartrate when Max is around.
A very well written, fast paced, action filled book that ties all the loose ends up at the end.”
