Navy SEAL Lieutenant Peter Greene is suddenly a single father to a sullen fifteen-year-old daughter. Romance novelist and divorced mother to two teenage boys Shayla Whitman’s life is in a rut. When Peter’s daughter disappears Shayla is in the right place at the right time as she teams up with Peter to find his daughter and maybe even find the elusive love they both crave.
When two single parents search for one’s missing daughter they set out on a danger fraught and anxiety driven quest that took this book to its conclusion with steady and intriguing advancement. Between Ms. Brockmann’s wonderful humorous dialog, her musclely vulnerable Navy SEAL dad and her sharp and beautiful romance novelist mom this book was a lively and memorable adventure. The heightened awareness and sweet hesitancy of the leads to not act on their attraction to each other for fear of risking their budding friendship was refreshing and spoke volumes to the plausibility of this being more then a heat of the moment hook up. Shayla and Peter worked well together in and out of the bedroom and this made their relationship smoldering and interesting as they pieced together clues regarding Peter’s missing daughter. Strong writing and a story that hit multiple vital interest points Suzanne Brockmann’s Some Kind of Hero was a mission successfully accomplished.
