Review: SOME KIND OF HERO: A Troubleshooters Novel by Suzanne Brockmann


SOME KIND OF HERO (Troubleshooters Book 19) by Suzanne Brockmann

Publication Date: July 11, 2017

Genre: Romantic Suspense


IMG_0009The 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 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.


Donna review 4.5 stars

I had fun reading this romantic suspense story. It was a fast paced and sexy little mystery. Peter (Grunge) was any woman’s military dream guy; smart, strong and sexy. I also liked that he was alpha, but not overbearing. Shayla was likeable and relatable. My only comment about her, was the male voice in her head. It got a little distracting at times. That being said – it was a fun read with plenty of military hunks that I can’t wait to read about.

Review: Do or Die: Reluctant Heroes by Suzanne Brockmann

Do or Die: Reluctant Heroes by Suzanne Brockmann
Publication Date: February 4, 2014
Reviewed by: Reading In Pajamas/ Dawn
Rated: 4.5 Stars


Suzanne Brockmann’s seamless blend of heroic military action and intense passion inspired USA Today to call her “a superstar of romantic suspense”—and for years her award-winning Troubleshooters books have been must-reads for fans of sizzling stories of action and adventure. Now the New York Times bestselling author shoots to thrill again with Do or Die, an electrifying new novel that is certain to win Brockmann new readers and delight devotees.

Navy SEAL Ian Dunn went rogue in a big way when he turned his talents to a lawless life of jewel heists and con jobs. Or so the world has been led to believe. In reality, the former Special Ops warrior is still fighting for good, leading a small band of freelance covert operatives who take care of high-stakes business in highly unofficial ways. That makes Ian the hands-down choice when the U.S. government must breach a heavily guarded embassy and rescue a pair of children kidnapped by their own father, a sinister foreign national willing to turn his kids into casualties. Shockingly, Ian passes on the mission for reasons he will not—or cannot—reveal.

But saying no is not an option. Especially not for Phoebe Kruger, Ian’s beautiful and unexpectedly brash new attorney. Determined to see the abducted children set free, Phoebe not only gets Ian on board but insists on riding shotgun on his Mission: Impossible–style operation, whether he likes it or not.

Though Phoebe has a valuable knack for getting out of tight spots, there’s no denying the intensely intimate feelings growing between Ian and Phoebe as the team gears up for combat. But these are feelings they both must fight to control as they face an array of cold-blooded adversaries, including a vindictive mob boss who’s got Ian at the top of his hit list and a wealthy psychopath who loves murder as much as he loves money. As they dodge death squads and play lethal games of deception, Ian and Phoebe will do whatever it takes to save the innocent and vanquish the guilty—or die trying.


Wow! Loved it! I had never read Suzanne Brockmann so I wasn’t sure what to expect. What I found was complete alpha man Ian. Ian was a Navy Seal and is now on the public side of special ops. Ian was serving time working on the inside in prison when the feds show up offering him immunity for him and his family if he could pull off the con of a lifetime. What Ian didn’t expect was to be attracted to Phoebe, the attorney that was sent to represent him. Ian also didn’t expect a lawyer to have the charm, sense of humor and street smarts Phoebe had. I loved reading about the chemistry between these two. They both fought their simmering attraction. Several life and death situations made them wonder what would happen if they gave into it. This book was action packed and there was such a range of emotions throughout the book. I loved it and will absolutely read more Brockmann books.
