satisfying romance suspense novel with plenty of intrigue and interesting secondary characters The main story centers around Tom and Kelly, who are reunited in their home town after 16 years What makes this book really good is the character development and the suspense storyline, but the romance itself is typical stuff with them getting to know each other again, a few small misunderstandings, and them dealing with some minor past issues There is a secondary romance between David and Mallory that I thought was muchriveting, and IMHO the secret stars of this book There was also a storyline with Tom s uncle and Kelly s father as they retold their story of events in WWII I could have done without that bit, but it did help make for one tear jerker of an ending I have already read books 7 13 in this series, so it was interesting reading book 1 after already knowing much of what will happen later on This may not be my favorite book in the series, but it was really enjoyable When will I learn that romantic suspense and I don t get along This ended up being an okay read for me I enjoyed it enough to keep going back to it and wanted to know what was happening, but it wasn t my favourite The main couple in this were horrible Kelly and Tom were insufferable and I didn t particularly want them to end up together The secondary romance story of David and Mallory, though YAS I was all about their romance Their love story is what kept me coming back to this book YOU When will I learn that romantic suspense and I don t get along This ended up being an okay read for me I

LOVE It s so adorable and sweet and fluffy and DELICIOUS I wish they were the focus couple instead of stupid Kelly and Tom I didn t find this book particularly suspenseful, but I did keep coming back

seeing rave reviews for Suzanne Brockmann s Troubleshooters series, so I finally decided to pick up The Unsung Hero Unfortunately, when I finished reading it, I was left with very mixed feelings about nearly every aspect of the book Rather than being a romance in which there is one primary hero and heroine with secondary characters to support them, it felt like there was an ensemble cast The book has three separate love stories going on at the same time written from no less than six points of view POV The narrative alternates between the three plots with a fourth suspense thriller plot and a few other minor points tying the trio of stories together Normally, I don t have a problem with multiple plot lines, but I usually prefer for them to be part of a larger story arc within both the book and series In this case, the ties between them were so minimal that I felt each story could have been told independently of one another I would no sooner be getting into one storyline and then it would switch to a different one which made the book feel rather choppy to me I also typically have no difficulties with following multiple POVs, but some of the scene transitions were written in a way that was confusing to me I occasionally found myself several paragraphs into a scene before I even realized in whose POV it was being told Another thing that bothered me about The Unsung Hero was the dreary, depressing overtone that permeated nearly the entire book I usually enjoy emotion laden stories with characters who have difficulties to overcome on the road to finding their HEA, but in this case, there were, in my opinion, too many characters going through challenging circumstances with an overabundance of repressed emotions and virtually no humor to ever lighten the mood I also prefer for the characters to grow and change while overcoming their challenges as the story progresses rather than making peace or having an instant epiphany at the eleventh hour Even the ending was pretty bittersweet and didn t exactly leave me with warm, fuzzy feelings.Tom and Kelly were the supposed main hero and heroine, but in my mind, they never emerged as such, but instead were just 1 3 of the whole picture In many ways, I didn t feel like I ever got to know them well enough for them to truly stand out For me, they ended up being mostly likable but rather bland characters in spite of Tom s profession Tom is a Navy SEAL in charge of an elite special ops force who received a serious head injury while on a mission He is now on leave and has returned home to recover Kelly is a caring pediatrician, but she had a lousy role model in her dad who was an alcoholic that shut out everyone, making Kelly feel like she couldn t express her emotions around him or anyone else Her dad is now dying and she has moved home to care for him, hoping that perhaps they can reconcile before it s too late Tom and Kelly were teenage friends who fell for each other, but when things started to heat up between them, Tom skipped town to join the Navy with hardly a word of explanation to Kelly Now that they re back together in such close proximity, they realize that their love for one another never died, but rather than embracing those feelings, they fight them tooth and nail for the entire book which is always frustrating to me The thing that annoyed me the most though was that Kelly decided she was going to live on the edge and have the summer fling with Tom that she had wanted all those years ago Once things heat up between them, she flat out tells him it s just about the sex, but then gets upset when he reacts badly to that declaration As it was, Tom and Kelly had few enough scenes together to rebuild their relationship, but then they had to go and have some serious communication issues on top of it all In some ways, I thought they still acted like the teenagers they once were, dancing around one another and being too afraid to express how they really felt which just aggravated me to no end I can t even say that I was left with 100% certainly that this couple was going to make it for the long haul.The second plot, and the saddest, revolves around the sixty year friendship between Kelly s dad, Charles, a wealthy man who is dying of cancer and Tom s uncle, Joe, who works as his groundskeeper They met each other during World War II in France where they both served in the military and both fell in love with the same woman, Cybele, a member of the French Resistance A large part of their story is told in flashbacks to the time when they all first met It was very difficult for me to like Charles at all He s extremely emotionally repressed and a hardened, grouchy old man who can be very rude and abrasive He spent most of his life after the war as an alcoholic, ignoring his only daughter, and running through a string of failed marriages As a young man in WWII, he was pretty cocky and for some reason I couldn t seem to fathom, he didn t want to take credit for anything good he did accomplish I adored Joe, a caring, mild mannered man both in the present and the past He is a loyal friend to Charles, but it took nearly the entire book for me to figure out why Joe would want to hang around with someone like him Joe was also a very courageous young man to volunteer to be a spy behind enemy lines during the war I sympathized with Cybele because of the terrible tragedy she endured, but I didn t feel like it excused what she did to Charles and Joe, especially Joe, because he was such a good man who wanted nothingthan to love and protect her I admired her pluck in going up against the Nazis, but she was a serious psychological mess who sadly, only seemed to be living to see their downfall I also found it very depressing that Charles and Joe were both still affected so deeply by her actions that they had, in my opinion, essentially wasted their lives The whole tale of these three friends was an interesting one but also an extremely morose one.The final romance, and also my favorite, was that of Tom s young niece, Mallory, and a geeky comic book artist named David who wants her to model as his latest super hero character, Nightshade Suzanne Brockmann gets a few extra points for writing a true geek hero who actually looks and acts like many geeks I know Intelligence is sexy to me, and not only is David smart, he s also very sweet and gentle He takes the time to look beneath the surface with Mallory and break down the walls that hide her vulnerable heart, while behaving like a true gentleman David was my favorite character in the book, and the only thing about him that I even found questionable was his choice of friends It took me a while to warm up to Mallory, because she treats David rather rudely in the beginning With every thoughtful little thing David did for her, I could see the wheels turning in her head, but even after she agrees to model for him, she could still be rather icy and condescending toward him It isn t until David comes to her rescue that she really starts to see him for what he truly is inside rather than just his nerdy exterior At least, I can say that Mallory changed throughout the story, but she was the only character who really did, in my opinion Her romance with David was a sweet, tender one, and although a few days isn t very long to fall in love, I came away feeling like they had as much or better chance of still being together down the road as the main couple did.The suspense portion of the plot involving Tom s sighting of a presumed dead terrorist and his struggle to get anyone in authority to believe him was scattered throughout the book and led to a literally explosive finale Once again, it wasn t the focus of the story, but it did bring into play a few of Tom s fellow officers, some of whom get their own books later in the series, mainly Sam Starrett and Alyssa Locke Gone too Far and Ken WildCard Karmody Out of Control John Nilsson The Defiant Hero and Mark Jenkins Into the Storm were briefly introduced in the prologue as part of Tom s SEAL team but didn t have anything to do with the terrorist plot The one team member who did have a decent supporting role but doesn t appear to have a book of his own yet though, is Casper Jazz Jacquette which is a little disappointing, because I though he was a rather interesting character.Overall, The Unsung Hero was a decent and worthwhile read Each plotline had it s own intriguing points, but I felt like they were spread too thin with too little of each one, especially Tom and Kelly s story, to be truly satisfying It was also difficult to connect on an emotional level with many of the characters because of their intensely guarded feelings The love scenes weren t as steamy as I was expecting either, although the lack of hot sex wouldn t have been a detractor for me if the emotional connection had been stronger The love scenes also got a little too chatty for my taste which I thought interrupted the flow of sexual tension Some of the dialog in general, could get a little long winded too and occasionally repetitive, which made things drag a bit, and the author used some military abbreviations and lingo with which I was not familiar, making me think that perhaps a glossary might have been helpful I guess the bottom line for me was that sometimes I enjoyed what I was reading and wanted to know what would happen next, while other times, I couldn t muster much enthusiasm for it The Unsung Hero is the first book in the Troubleshooters series and my first read by Ms Brockmann I ve heard from other readers though that it isn t necessarily the best, so with this in mind, I do intend to continue with the series and hope that it only gets better from here on out There are currently fifteen books in the Troubleshooters series, with at least onein the works Readers can find a complete list of the titles and their recommended reading order on Suzanne Brockmann s website 4 A buddy

little speck of a human, I shared a bedroom with my baby brother and my older than G d gypsy grandmother The bane of my existence, that is my brother of course, was very small and had a baby cradle, but my grandma and I shared a double bed I loved the evenings when we would go to bed at the same time, because I knew I would get a story about the wars through which she and the grandfather I had never met had lived Before spy movies and action thrillers, my grandma filled my head with the stories of resistance against the Nazis, about the time when Greece took Bulgarian lands from around the Aegean Sea and she and her husband, with a baby on their hands, had to uproot once again and move to a new city and start all over again Many thought of my granny as a seer, a fortune teller, even a country raised psychologist, but to me she was the woman with the thousand stories, always new and fresh, and so very exciting, knowing that I come from a family of rebels, of brave and honorable dreamers, never mind that the results of those dreams were not always what they had hoped for.Granny had a way of telling a story, and this book, the whole thing, reminded me of her and her tales, which she would tell me every evening until she was gone I think the strong emotions the book provoked in me were most influenced by the ark of the two older men who remembered the time they spend in France during WW2, behind enemy lines, and the woman who stole their hearts It was way to similar to those late night stories grandma loved to tellYes, it was Joe s story, but it was his story, too It was his life, his secrets, his failures.His grief.Nearly sixty years of running from himself, from all his pain, all his heartache, and here he was Still here.Still achingThe book has three story arcs The main one is about Tom Paoletti and Kelly Ashton Tom is a Navy SEAL yay SEALs and is going home after a head injury for about a month Home is where his Great Uncle Joe is, and that is in a town near Boston, where he is the grounds keeper of the estate of his rich war buddy Charles Ashton Joe and Charles made it back home together after WW2 and have been best friends ever since Dr Kelly Ashtom is Charles s doughtier and only child, who has come back home to take care of her dying father It just so happens that Tom and Kelly had always had a thing for each other, just never got it on Now they are older, have had some life behind them, and are very weary of starting anything with anyone They were the sexy sizzling times coupleYou can t choose who you love, Kelly, but you can waste it Why on earth would anyone want to waste itWhile contemplating his waning life, Charles remembers the time he was hiding in Paris, a place where he met Joe, in a house belonging to the French resistance fighter Cybele, a tragic figure full of contrasting passions and making an impression on the two young Americans, which will stay with them for life This is the arc which had me an emotional wreck, I was so fascinated with the two old guys and the way the love for this woman kept them together until the end It was beautiful, and painful, and wrong, but so very strong and right in all the ways that mattered I couldn t wait for the little moments we got to learn everything about this arc This was the love triangle in flashbacks arcJoe had been a good looking man, too, but Charles had had a magical air about him He still had it, even at eighty Even back when he was drinking and at his most cruel and verbally abusive, even then, the spark didn t quite go outAs I said, it was ugly and harsh at times, but very poignant The sweet, although at times dumb teenage ridiculous couple arc was about Mallory Paoletti, Tom s 18 year old niece, and a geeky, but gentle, talented and very persistent artist, the 20 years old college student David David steels your heart, want it or not He is just adorable and I hope Mallory deserves him, because she was a total judgmental ass when they first met They are the sweet, new love arcAs long as I ve got a book, it doesn t matter where I am I can instantly be a million miles away, in a completely different place, on a different planet even I can be someone else, you know When it gets too complicated to be myselfAmen, brother This is the reason most of us are book addicts So, these three stories coalesce around a possible terrorist bombing plan, which is a bit of a second thought as far as the plot is concerned It becomes a catalyst for the characters to move forward with their life choices, but it was not what the book was truly about It is a romance, character driven and old school, and I would recommend it to all who love romance in all of its forms I personally would love to continue with the series Now I wish you all Happy Reading and many wonderful books to come Quick summaryDuring a mission, Navy SEAL Tom Paoletti suffers a head injury that sidelines him While recuperating at his New England hometown, he catches a glimpse of a notorious terrorist but no one believes him See, Tom was the leader of SEAL Team 16 and no matter the injury, his instincts are stellar He puts together a bare bones team to help him figure out what s going on In the meantime, he s also reconnecting with Kelly Ashton, his teenage crush and the woman who got away.Why this book Quick summaryDuring a mission, Navy SEAL Tom Paoletti suffers a head injury that sidelines him While recuperating at his New England hometown, he catches a glimpse of a notorious terrorist but no one believes him See, Tom was the

Ashton, his teenage crush and the woman who got away.Why this book is specialTom is the consummate hero If you were to outline the qualities you d like to see in one, you d find them in this character His subordinates respect and admire him and it was no wonder that Kelly fell for him all over again This book is also the first in one of my all time favorite series It s not as exciting and suspenseful as those that follow but it s important in that Tom creates the Troubleshooters group, setting the stage for all that comes next It s romantic, funny, suspenseful and downright frightening at times The bottom lineTom Paoletti exemplifies all that is honorable about our armed forces It s a wonderful story to begin an incredible series written by one of my most favorite authors I listened to this on Overdrive I thought the narration was excellent, but this book may have been better served read vs listened to It was my first Brockmann book so I had no idea what to expect.This was a BIG book A TON going on No less than 3 separate but linked plots that could have been their own books This was like reading a movie It could be a movie If you lose focus listening you could miss something important and find yourself in the middle of a different plot with no idea wha I listened to this on Overdrive I thought the narration was excellent, but this book may have been better served read vs

like reading a movie It could be a movie If you lose focus listening you could miss something important and find yourself in the middle of a different plot with no idea what happened I found myself rewinding a few times.Basically this story was about Tom and Kelly He left his small town behind 16 years prior at almost 19 Leaving behind Kelly who had a monster crush on her neighbor But Kelly was only 15 and after one kiss, Tom knew he needed to leave both because she was too young and because he did not want to be trapped there living with his Uncle Joe after his Mom kicked him out when he was 14.Tom joined the navy and became the commander of the most elite SEAL team He has never been in love He is married to his career, which he loves He was hurt on a mission and is home to visit Joe briefly He had a head injury and is worried he is having bouts of paranoia and seeing things that are not true Even though he knows they are.While Tom broke Kelly s heart, she did not sit around waiting She became a doctor, married and divorced 2 years prior She has just moved home to her Dad s from Boston because he has been diagnosed with cancer and has less than 3 months to live Her Dad Charles is best friends with Joe, since they served together in WWII.Tom and Kelly reconnect after 16 year separation Knowing it can only be short term But feelings change At least on his side Kelly pissed me off at times, but I also felt Tom was a bit too whiney This book is also about Kelly trying to have some connection to her dad before he dies.And Charles relationship with Joe What really happened in France during the war We get a ton of flashbacks They both fell in love with the same woman It was a heartbreaking story that you know had no good outcome.Lastly, Tom s 18 year old niece, Mallory, meets and falls for David This was my favorite storyline David was such a lovable nerdy, geek and Mallory was hiswarrior princess It was not a perfect match on paper, but I cheered for them from the first time they met and loved their parts All of this is going on underneath an overarching suspense plot involving an international terrorist Whew I skipped so much but feel like I wrote a novel just trying to describe the plot so I will keep my comments fairly brief.I enjoyed the overall story There were parts that interested me less than others, but they all were engaging I believe this is best described as a suspense novel because that part overpowered the romance At least the romance between the H h I felt a lotromance in the David Mallory relationship But it was a very enjoyable story The suspense plot wrapped up in a sad but kind of too neat to be believed way And we did not really get closure on the after effects Those are probably revealed in future books in the series I am sure I will readbooks in this series, but I may search for ones with a bitromance Safety gang safe Disclaimer This review is done by someone who does not LIKE romance novels It s not that

longed for Kelly Now he has one final chance for happiness, one last chance to win her heart, and one desperate chance to save the day.Does it promise a thriller, action, suspense Or does it promise romance and that too the puppy love types Here I was getting ready to save the world and ALL I saw was everybody was falling in love with everybody , everyone was kissing everyone , everyone made out with everyone , everyone wanted to marry everyone , etc I mean even the old men in the book had to GO BACK in time as flashback and take me through how again everybody was falling in love with everybody , everyone was kissing everyone , everyone made out with everyone , everyone wanted to marry everyone , status during their times.ONE single question haunted me throughout, and that was Gosh, these people are kissing away, making out, holding hands all the time Who is going to catch the terrorist I did feel sorry for the terrorist He was risking his life trying to blow away a whole town and NOBODY bothered I mean, don t get me wrong, I DO BELIEVE IN LOVE, but when it comes to love oozing out of every available orifice and that too in the gooiest and mushiest form, it gets kinda risky I was scared to even go out during this reading period because my entire vibes were so mushy, strangers would have probably kissed me, made out with me, married me Shudder anything could have happened But I didn t give up, I finished it Ladies, see I DIDN T GIVE UP ON LOVE bats eyelid and smiles the cutest smile I have finally finished It is time to watch Spy Game , Scarface , The Godfather , a few Bond movies to get back on track My legs are like jelly now, so much mush , and I truly hope that these movies heal me completely.For all you romance lovers this is your book But I must say, I have found an awesome gift to be given to all the ladies in my life Heck, I will even go down on my knees when I am gifting it It will probably help me transform my wicked self into

learns that his uncle is being honored as a WWII hero, he begins a romance with Kelly Ashton, the sexy doctor from next door and he catches glimpse of a long pursued,international terrorist known as

he is suffering from delusions and paranoia Tom himself isn t so sure that he s not going crazy But repeated sightings convinces him there is a real threat Knowing he is on he own he calls in a few members of his team to help him out.In the meantime, Kelly s father who is best friends with Tom s uncle Joe is dying from terminal cancer The two friends met while both were behind enemy lines during WWII The two men share years of memories of a very special French Resistance fighter with whom they were both in love and still are.And Tom s niece Mallory embarks upon a sweet romance with a nerdy graphic novelist who wants to use her as his muse for his latest book.I decided to do a re read of Suzanne Brockmann s Troubleshooters series in honor of the most recent and 13th book of the series, Into the Fire That and the fact that I really hadn t re read any of the books.I remember when I first read this book I had never read a Brockmann book before and, at the time this book was produced, I hadn t encountered any other books that used the military as a backdrop so thoroughly I like her use of the salty language, the military argot and the camaraderie and trust that is built within the team I also like the multiple storylines As the series went on, I soon learned that this was a hallmark of Brockmann s storytelling She writes a main romance pairing the primary H H And then she includes a secondary romantic couple, one that usually runs as an arc through several books before culminating in a book of their own, and finally she includes a flashback story the centers on a WWII romance that has a connection to the people in current time The multi line long arc storytelling is right up my alley I always likes series because I enjoy re visiting characters I also think it gives the author the luxury of building a depth of character that they simply can t achieve usually in a single volume Having Tom, the CO of the SEAL 16 team feature in the first book is a great choice Tom is the center around which they all revolve He is the one they all love and respect In this first book we get first glimpses of characters who will over the course of the series become very familiar Jazz, Wildcard, Johnny Nilsson, Chief Stan etc.And this brings me to Sam and Alyssa This is the book where we first meet Sam and Alyssa, the breakout couple of the series Their angsty romance runs in the background for the next four books until book six when they get their own story Even back when I read the book for the first time, not knowing what Brockmann had in store for SA, I knew these two had chemistry I like it when a writer plants these little seeds early on so that you can watch something grow over time Brockmann is great at that and it is part of what makes this series a must read for me.I highly recommend It s not often that I call a romantic suspense novel beautiful and moving, but that s exactly what The Unsung Hero was Really, this was three separate stories weaved together into one a second chance romance between Tom Paoletti and Kelly Ashton, a longtime friendship between two WWII veterans Tom s great uncle, Joe Paoletti and Kelly s father, Charles Ashton , and a

the main house When Tom was in high school he couldn t ignore Charles s beautiful, but underage daughter, Kelly They were good friends, talking under her tree house many a summer night, their attraction growing and growing until they shared a night of passion filled kisses Sixteen years later Tom still thinks of Kelly and she is still hurt by Tom s sudden, unexplained departure Now that Kelly s father Charles is dying, she s back home, and with Tom back as well, all the old feelings and attraction come rushing back full force There was massive amounts chemistry between Tom and Kelly Their longing was palpable, making their romance fiery once they finally get together It takes a bit for them to sort out exactly where they stand hot temporary fling or forever But I loved their journey Joe and Charles fought together with French resistance fighters back in World War II They were lauded as heroes after the information they carried back to the Allied forces saved Charles company of troops the Fighting Fifty fifth After the war, Joe came back with Charles and became his grounds keeper, and reluctant best friend, but Joe s hit hard with the news of Charles terminal

between the present and their dangerous time in France Love, tragedy, and heartache had me in tears several times over their story Mallory Paoletti meets David, a geeky guy determined to get to know

defenses they form a bond, and Mallory starts to see the attractive man, inside and out, under all the geek trappings I swear, this was the sweetest romance I was rooting for the geek from minute one The suspense part was actuallyin the background in my opinion Tom thinks he spots a terrorist called the Merchant at the airport and then again in town He s worried the Merchant has targeted the Fighting Fifty fifth s award ceremony since foreign dignitaries and important government representatives are attending Convincing the higher ups that the Merchant is back and poses a plausible threat is quite another thing Tom enlists the help of some of his SEAL teammates, and even Uncle Joe and Charles join in on the mission It does seem like a lot going on, but these stories converge and intersect seamlessly through Suzanne Brockmann s talented and beautiful writing Each story was emotional and I was moved to tearsthan once while reading I ll definitely be reading the rest of this
