When his three-year-old daughter is kidnapped, Eric Wilson doesn’t have many options, and time is running out. With nowhere else to turn, he reaches out to his ex, influential businessman Brock Vencenza, whose money and contacts might be able to save Josie.
Brock never got over Eric’s loss, and he’s more than willing to help when Eric needs him most. Together with law enforcement and private security, they embark on a twisting investigation to find the little girl—and who wants to hurt her and destroy both men in the process. Under the circumstances, confessing he still has feelings for Eric would be inappropriate, but Brock can’t deny what’s in his heart. He doesn’t know if their love can be rekindled or if he can even protect Eric and Josie. But one thing is certain: Brock’s determined to be the hero in reality that he is in Eric’s eyes.
Unlikely Hero by Sean Michael was a different read to many of the things I had read by her in the past. This story really focus’ on the safety of Eric’s little girl, Josie and how Brock can ensure that. Eric believes that Brock is his hero. And the word hero is overused a huge number of times to prove the point.
This story starts 9 years after Brock and Eric have broken up because they want different things and although they love each other Eric is going to chase his dream of having a family. 9 years on and Eric’s little girl is kidnapped and he turns to Brock for the money to get her back.
The things I liked about the story was that it was well paced. And plenty happened throughout the book. The people responsible turned out not to be a surprise to me, but it was still well written and I enjoyed the tale.
Things I didn’t love was the fact that every female (besides the babysitter) was a baddie. I find that rather annoying. I also didn’t love the use of ‘baby’ as a pet name for someone who you haven’t seen in 9 years. The two men do fall back together very easily and quickly which worked for the story, but I found a bit unrealistic. I also feel the end of the book leaves me with some things unresolved. Nothing major, just little bits and pieces.
Overall this was an easy, enjoyable read. And I think it was well worth the evening curled up on the couch enjoying it.
