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.

  • Love the Troubleshooter series

    By BB5535
    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.
  • Fast

    By 2kasmom
    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

    By SudukuSue
    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.
  • Classic Brockmann

    By Blonde Betty2
    Suzanne Brockmann is one of my go-to authors. She tells great stories and always hooks me from the very beginning. It has been a while since we had a new Brockmann book to read, but the wait was well worth it. Some Kind of Hero reads like classic Brockmann. The dialogue is witty and fast, there is a historical subplot (though it could have been expanded), as well as a series of flashbacks to when Pete met Lisa. Long time readers will love seeing favorite characters again. Readers of Ready to Roll will enjoy catching up with Boat Squad John, I know I did. This book is fun, funny, and a great summer read. I read it in one sitting. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.
