Book Review – Malicious Intent

Malicious Intent by Lynn Blackburn

Dr. Ivy Collins, founder and CEO of Hedera, Inc., is ready to begin clinical trials of her company’s cutting-edge prosthetic. Her work has been heralded by government, medical, and advocacy groups and everyone hopes the device will be a success. Well, almost everyone. Someone is trying to sabotage Hedera and the launch, but to what purpose–and how far will they go to get what they want? 

Meanwhile, U.S. Secret Service Agent Gil Dixon can’t believe he’s finally been reunited with Ivy, his childhood best friend. Now that he’s found her again, Gil intends to spend the rest of his life with her. But it will take all his skill to uncover the truth in time to save Ivy’s life’s work, her own life, and the innocent lives caught in the crossfire.

Perfectly balancing chilling suspense and uplifting romance, award-winning author Lynn H. Blackburn delivers a story of revenge, greed, and overcoming that you won’t want to put down no matter how late it gets.

My Thoughts

Well, this one’s intense!! Lynn Blackburn continues to amaze with her action-packed, suspense-filled novels. This one is a stunner!

I loved this sequel, the second in Ms. Blackburn’s Defend and Protect series. This is Gil’s story.

The story begins with Gil visiting his childhood best friend about some counterfeit bills. Only, when he & his partner get to Ivy’s house, she requires rescuing from some villains who were torturing her.
This is only the beginning of the many attacks that are made on Ivy’s life.
Seemingly, someone is after information that she has on her computer. Perhaps it is something to do with Hedera, the brilliant prosthetic company she founded.
This story is just FULL of action. So much going on. Ivy is in constant danger. Gil is determined to have her under protection around the clock.
I loved the twists and turns, and not being able to guess what would happen next.
I also loved seeing the relationship between Gil & Ivy progress….

If you enjoy romantic suspense, this is a story you definitely won’t want to miss!
