This book's one saving grace is the developing romance between Alyssa and Sam.
Nils and Meg are not an appealing couple - the constant reminder of the age difference between them is a complete turn off and the suspense plot is completely contrived. In real life, the terrorists would have killed her family the second she took hostages.
Hopefully, the next one will be better. ( )

A little too much romance, not quite as much story. Still, it was an easy read. ( )
  SMBrick | Feb 25, 2018 |
The heroine's continued insistance to do things her way when she is clueless as to how to handle terrioist is, frankly, rediculous. It's impossible to enjoy a romance when you spend 80% of the time wanting to struggle the heroine. ( )

I love Suzanne Brockmann. While this was a good read, I was more involved with the secondary romance of Sam and Alyssa than I was by the main romance of Nils and Meg. ( )

Didn't hold my interest as much as the first one nor was it as good. I loved John and all the backstories, but Meg just got on my last nerve. She made this rushed decisions and then screw the consequences, and she was quite annoying too. Those three stars that I gave was basically for the secondary stories which focused on Locke/Sam and Eve/Ralph that were just awesome story points. Still, I'll be reading the next book in the series.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0804119538, Mass Market Paperback)

In The Unsung Hero, award-winning author Suzanne Brockmann dazzled readers with her remarkable cast of tough and tender U.S. Navy SEALs. Now her daring men in uniform return for THE DEFIANT HERO—a thrilling novel of steadfast courage, intimate passions, and the profound risks that are taken in the name of love. . . .

"The United States refuses to negotiate with terrorists." Meg Moore remembered the warning from her job as a translator in a European embassy. Those same words will spell out a death sentence for her daughter and grandmother who have been kidnapped by a lethal group called the Extremists. Meg will do anything to meet their unspeakable demands; anything—even kill—to save her child.

When Navy SEAL Lieutenant, junior grade, John Nilsson is summoned to Washington, D.C., by the FBI to help negotiate a hostage situation, the last person he expects to see holding a foreign ambassador at gunpoint is Meg. He hasn't seen her in years, but he's never forgotten how it feels to hold her in his arms. John could lose his career if he helps her escape. She will lose her life if he doesn't. . . .
