But that leaves Peter and Shayla as a couple without conflict, and that makes them extremely boring in my opinion. I'm almost finished with this book and I don't even know what Peter looks like. Grunge has barely been in the series anyway, so why should I care so much about his HEA?
And now, let me complain about the rest of the book:
I like Izzy, but I don't love Izzy. Izzy is no Sam. And Eden certainly isn't Alyssa. And Ben is boring. I don't care if we never hear from the three of them ever again in this series. At least Lindsey is useful because she's got connections with the police force, but she doesn't do much to move the plot along. And Adam...
Suz, I hate to say it, but I seriously, seriously doubt that a movie star like Adam would just be hanging around with the Team wives. I get that Adam is married to one of the guys on Team 16, but it just seems a tad too far to expect us to believe that he'd just drop everything to help them locate a missing teenager. And this is like the fourth or fifth time Adam has helped out with something like this, which...is kind of a lot for anybody.
Suzanne Brockmann is a great writer, but in the end I got the feeling that Shayla's words about writer's block and the lack of enthusiasm are actually straight from Suz's own thoughts. She's been writing about Navy SEALs for a long time and maybe this whole thing has run its course? Or not. I'll probably always buy Troubleshooters novels out of tradition and loyalty--but I get the feeling that I'll always be disappointed.
I’ve enjoyed all of the Troubleshooters novels a great deal. My favorites tend to have a modern storyline as well as a secondary historical storyline. That’s how I first learned about Dunkirk, actually (sad to say my education didn’t include very much world history, but I’m working on it!) Some Kind of Hero didn’t exactly have a full blown second storyline, but the historical information was important. My US History education wasn’t too great, either, because I didn’t learn about the internment camps in the US until I was out of school. I was maybe 19 and I was furious that we hadn’t been taught about the camps in school. It is something that needs to be taught to keep it from happening again, which is something I’ve come to fear in the last couple of years.
Ok, no more politics.
Some Kind of Hero is the sort of exciting story that I expect from Brockmann. I’d probably cry if it hadn’t been. Even better, every book is definitely original enough that you can spend a while doing a whole binge read of the series without getting bored.
My husband is former military and a retired big city patrolman, so I especially appreciate that she gets the details right. I know they have to be bent sometimes to fit the situation, but you won’t find mistakes like “Glock revolvers” or someone taking the safety off a pistol that doesn’t have one (I’m looking at you, Walking Dead).
I especially appreciate that her heroines are not idiots. There’s long been a trope that the love interest of the leading man in action movies does stupid things that put them both in danger. I hate that. When the heroines in these books take a dangerous risk, it’s because it’s necessary, not because they’re trying to be someone they aren’t or they’re trying to show the man that they can do anything he can do.
Just buy the book already.
