"She'd been dropped right into a Salvador Dali painting, where everything she knew was still there but distorted in new and mostly disturbing ways."
The only silver lining was the man standing in front of her, the man who had walked straight into the worst moments of her life like a knight in shining armor, the man who had once been her best friend, the man who softly uttered the following words with utmost assurance and confidence, "Don't count on me protecting you from me for long, Buttercup".
And with that declaration, Dr. Ivy Collins knew in her heart that U. S. Secret Service Agent Gil Dixon might just be back in her life for good. In spite of all her past mistakes, Gil still believed in her. A girl needed a man like that when her life was in danger, for he brought along a host of high-octane friends who were determined to keep Ivy safe and preserve the integrity of her company, Hedera, Inc., from those who sought to destroy it from within and without.
It was incredibly refreshing to read a fast moving suspense that was at times more romantic than suspenseful. And romantic it was. Gil's love and affection for Ivy was founded on years of childhood friendship that had unfortunately been severed, and partially destroyed, only to be restored at just the right time. However, don't be lulled into amorous bliss, this book begins and ends with a mother-load of "malicious intent".
"Lord, I don't know what to do, so my eyes are on you."
