The Unsung Hero by Suzanne Brockmann

Hero: Tom Paoletti
Heroine: Kelly Ashton
Grade: B+
Date: 2/22/06

After a near-fatal head injury, navy SEAL lieutenant Tom Paoletti catches a terrifying glimpse of an international terrorist in his New England hometown. When he calls for help, the navy dismisses the danger as injury-induced imaginings. In a desperate, last-ditch effort to prevent disaster, Tom creates his own makeshift counterterrorist team, assembling his most loyal officers, two elderly war veterans, a couple of misfit teenagers, and Dr. Kelly Ashton -- the sweet "girl next door" who has grown into a remarkable woman. The town's infamous bad boy, Tom has always 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....

Someone in my book club is buying this series and will be reading it for the first time, I think she is mighty lucky, because I would give my right foot (or wait, maybe my left foot, or maybe just a toe on my left foot, *sigh*) to be able to read this series for the first time. I absolutely LOVE this series, so because my friend picked it up, I'm picked it up too and started a thorough reread of the books, I'm so loving life again right now. This book was fast paced, action packed and the main romance between Tom and Kelly was sweet, even though a few times throughout the book I wanted to smack Tom upside his head and tell him to get on with it, DO HER already! It was great to become reacquainted with characters I have come to love so very much. Suzanne Brockmann does a wonderful job of wrapping you up in the storylines between Kelly and Tom, Joe, Charles and Cybele and then with Mallory and David. Each storyline really took off and only added more goodness to the entire story as a whole.

Suz was the very first author to make me realize how hot, nerds can be. David Sullivan will forever hold a special part of my nerd heart. Loved his storyline with Mallory, they were perfect for eachother. They kinda stole a bit of Tom and Kelly's thunder but that's okay, because we see a lot more of Tom and Kelly throughout the series so I'm not too worried about it.

If you haven't read this series, you have to...I demand it. LOL. Just kidding, but seriously, this is a really great series and I'm loving my reread of this story so very much!
