Some Kind of Hero Book Summary

The Troubleshooters return in the latest thriller from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann! Some Kind of Hero showcases Brockmann’s signature white-knuckle suspense, romantic twists, and sexy Navy SEALs.

Navy men don’t come tougher than Lieutenant Peter Greene. Every day he whips hotshot SEAL wannabes into elite fighters. So why can’t he handle one fifteen-year-old girl? His ex’s death left him a single dad overnight, and very unprepared. Though he can’t relate to an angsty teen, he can at least keep Maddie safe—until the day she disappears. Though Pete’s lacking in fatherly intuition, his instinct for detecting danger is razor sharp. Maddie’s in trouble. Now he needs the Troubleshooters team at his back, along with an unconventional ally.

Romance writer Shayla Whitman never expected to be drawn into a real-world thriller—or meet a hero who makes her pulse pound. Action on the page is one thing. Actually living it is another story. Shay’s not as bold as her heroines, but she’s a mother. She sees the panic in her new neighbor’s usually fearless blue eyes—and knows there’s no greater terror for a parent than having their child at risk. It’s an ordeal Shay won’t let Pete face alone. She’s no highly trained operative, but she’s smart, resourceful, and knows what makes teenagers tick.

Still, working alongside Pete has its own perils—like letting the heat between them rise out of control. Intimate emotions could mean dangerous, even deadly, consequences for their mission. No matter what, they must be on top of their game, and playing for keeps . . . or else Pete’s daughter may be gone for good.

  • Never Disappoints

    Ms Brockmann never disappoints. The SEAL 16 team characters are always fascinating and real. Izzy never fails to make me laugh! Can't wait for the installment when Izzy & Eden's offspring makes his/her debut. I hope there will be more to Shay & Peter's story in upcoming books. Shay is a RIOT!!'
  • A wonderful single dad military romance

    received a free copy (from NetGalley) of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it. All I can say is WOW!!! This book took some time to get through. WHY you may ask?! Is because there were times that the conversations were so hilarious that I had to put the book aside. Shayla is a romance writer and her main character Harry has a great comical dialogue throughout the story. Five stars doesn't do the book justice. It deserves at least a perfect 10!!! The book contains POVs from several characters not just the two main ones (Shayla and Peter). You get more of an in-depth view of the characters and plot this way. The book evolved in a way that keeps the reader glued to the pages. You can't help but stay tuned for the action and hilarious interactions of the characters. I highly recommend this book to anyone you loves suspense, adventure and laughter along with their romance!!!!
  • Suzanne Brockman is the bomb!

    I'll confess. I'm a busy, high powered female marketing executive and SB is my escape and not-so guilty pleasure. Loved this story as I do all her books. The blend of hotness and humor is always a winning combo. There's really only one problem. Not enough time. Mine or hers. I want more books as fast as she can write them. My days are stressful and I need my escape. Help me SB, you're my only hope!

    This book is hard to put down. The suspense is riveting and the love stories also. The hero turns out to be someone you wouldn't suspect and maybe he can be a hero of another story too. I'd like that. Seal dad trying to find his runaway daughter with the help of his romance writer neighbor turns out to be a great story line. I recommend this book highly.
  • Once again, great characters from TS

    By SlothSinBestSin

    First thing's First, if you're here to check in with all the heroes from the previous TS books, you'll be a little disappointed. Izzy, Adam, and a few others feature prominently, but this entry seems to be turning its sights on a new wave of characters with Boat Squad John going through their training. The one thing that stuck out most to me (aside from the well done romance) is the way Maddie, the daughter of the male lead, was written. Without giving too much away, Grunge's daughter gets in way over her head thanks to a crowd she's running with in school and is given a very short grace period to fix the situation, or sleep with the fishes. When presented with this situation, most high schoolers would probably run and scream for help from their family, and a handful would actually think they're capable of fixing things themselves. Grunge's daughter definitely comes across as the stubborn and headstrong type, and it's written convincingly. I still hated her every time she refused to call Grunge and Shayla for help, but I never wanted to skip her sections of the book either. All in all, I loved this entry and can't wait for another TS entry!
  • Love the Troubleshooter series

    This is my all time favorite series and this book doesn't disappoint. The new characters are great and I love that she added a little history like the earlier books in the series. I love Izzy and was happy to see him as a POV character. Also intrigued about the new boat squad Johns and looking forward to their stories.

    This is the 17th book in the Troubleshooters series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and for reader enjoyment and understanding of this fabulous 5* series I recommend reading in order. Shayla helps her neighbor Peter, when she sees him on the side of the road trying to flag help down. Then they get to know one another and the heat is on! The attraction is mutual, if not surprising. Peter cannot find his daughter. With her missing his life feels out of control. His neighbor comes to his aid, and he is attracted to more than her body. Her mind is such a sexy thing. This is such a great addition to the series. This story has it all. I loved the character interactions, the sexy times, the recurring characters visiting & more! Hard to put down a Troubleshooters book, and this is no exception. If you were looking for a summer read, look no further! ***This ARC copy was given in exchange for an honest review, by Netgalley and its publisher.
  • Romantic Suspense Awesomeness....

    By Cali Jewel

    Highly exciting, action packed and extremely emotional romantic journey for a newly single father and awesomely insightful writer. Entertaining late night, not really wanting to sleep, cuddled in a nice warm bed read. Lieutenant Peter Greene is a hotter than hot elite SEAL instructor who is also a newly single father of an angry fifteen year old daughter after his ex-wife passes away. Shayla Whitman is a awesomely sassy, sweet, sexy and insightful romance writer living across the street from a real life hero Peter Greene and his head strong teen daughter. Sparks fly between these two as they face danger and work as a team to rescue Peter's daughter. Loved it.
  • Good reading

    Typical Brockmann which is very good. The protagonists are a fortyish writer with writer's block, a slightly younger Seal and his many teammates along with his recently acquired teen age daughter who has gone missing. There is lots of action and romance (it is a chick lit special) and, all in all, it is good, fast, entertaining reading. Thanks to Net Galley and Ballantine for an ARC for an honest review.
  • extraordinary romantic suspense

    By Tome Tender

    Every once in a while you come across an extraordinary romantic suspense. Its a story with resilience, that ability to stick with you long after you are through. SOME KIND OF HERO has that special something and it comes in the way Brockmann creates her characters. Relateable, likeable and oh, so human. Fast paced, fun and packed full of everything that I've come to love from Brockmann brand of writing. SOME KIND OF HERO is an example of contemporary romance at its finest with a good dose of suspense on the side. I received this ARC copy of Some Kind of Hero from Random House Publishing Group - Ballantine. This is my honest and voluntary review.
