Publisher's Summary

Julie Garwood is among the most critically acclaimed - and popular - romance authors around, with 36 million copies of her books in print. And now, with The Ideal Man, Garwood is poised to expand that already huge audience.

Dr. Ellie Sullivan has just completed her residency at a large urban hospital. While jogging in a park nearby, she witnesses the shooting of an FBI agent in pursuit of wanted criminals, a couple identified as the Landrys. The only person to see the shooter’s face, Ellie is suddenly at the center of a criminal investigation.

Agent Max Daniels takes over the Landry case. A no-nonsense lawman, he’s definitely not the ideal man that Ellie has always imagined, yet she’s attracted to him in a way she can’t explain.

Ellie heads home to Winston Falls, South Carolina, to attend her sister’s wedding. Shortly after she arrives, though, she receives a surprise visitor: Max Daniels. The Landrys have been captured, and she’ll be called to testify. But they’ve been captured before, and each time the witnesses are scared into silence - or disappear before they can take the stand. Max vows to be Ellie’s shadow until the trial, and it isn’t long before sparks fly....

    "Not worth the credit"
    Would you try another book from Julie Garwood and/or Christina Traister?

    maybe later once I forget about this book but not anytime soon.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Julie Garwood again?

    maybe later but not now


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christina Traister?

    Tanya Eby


    What character would you cut from The Ideal Man?


    Any additional comments?

    "Should be a Series...Loved It!"

    I have been a fan of Jennifer Ashley for a while now, and The Ideal Man, as narrated by Christina Traister, did not disappoint!! The characters are well developed, and although it is a relatively short novel, their relationships are well established. I only wish that JA had turned this book into the first of a series. I thoroughly appreciated this listen. Definitely Credit Worthy! Enjoy!
