Review: Some Kind of Hero (Troubleshooters #17) by Suzanne Brockmann

Some Kind of Hero 

Some Kind of Hero (Troubleshooters #17) by Suzanne Brockmann 


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 to 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 a 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.


3 out of 5 stars

This was a fun, chaotic read. Nothing like jumping into a series with book 17! I loved the sound of the synopsis and decided to give it a try.

Some Kind of Hero was a fun, light, romantic suspense story that was rather light on the suspense. I enjoyed the overall storyline of Shayla and Peter, Peter and his daughter Maddie, and even with Maddie and her friend Dingo. There were some entertaining moments, some sweet and heartfelt ones, some drama, and action. It was a good read and I liked it well enough that I read it to the end because I wanted to know what happened and to get to the HEA. I thought Shayla and Peter had a decent romance happening but it all felt very fast paced and not very deep, but definitely sweet.

The first half felt drawn out with everything and everyone being introduced and I was having a hard time being fully invested because there was just so much information being given. It was easy to put it down and walk away. The second half came around and it totally picked up. The pace and flow were better, and it became exciting to read. Great ending which had a nice amount of action. It ended nice and neat and clean.

It was good but I had some issues. There were multiple POVs, so many that I felt it was confusing. Lots of characters were introduced and since this is book 17 in the series but the first one I’ve read, it felt like a lot and it gave it a very cluttered feel. Shayla was a writer and her main character talked to her in her head, it was pretty much her conscience but it happened so much that it felt like over kill and got old pretty quick.

I liked it well enough but I honestly don't know if I'd back track and read other books in the series. It was good but I wasn't blown away. I really enjoyed the light and fun aspects of it that made it entertaining however, I loved those moments. A solid 3 stars.
