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.

Wow. What a completely unexpected read. There is definitely danger, there is intrigue, and there is love. Sean Michael has a winner with this book that is for sure. I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through this read and you definitely do not know who the bad person is until Sean is ready to reveal them. That is what made this read so good.

Eric is frantic the first time Brock sees him after so many years. Brock has always been in love with Eric so for Eric to come to him in his time of need he is not going to turn him away.

Eric did not know what to do when he found the note that said his daughter had been kidnapped. The only one he knew to turn to was Brock. His daughter Josie is the reason he walked away from Brock to begin with. He wanted a family and he knew that the life that Brock led was not for a family. So he left.

Now that Jo is endanger there is no one else he wants on his side. Brock and Eric have to work together to put together all the clues that will hopefully lead them and the investigative team to Jo before something happens to her. Time is running out and the closer they get to finding her the more dangerous things become. Brock and Eric have both realized through this crisis that they still have feelings for one another but now is not the time to explore them. Will they have the chance to see if they are still good together or will time run out for one or all of them?

This book is an exciting read with a lot of danger and mystery. It will leave you in the edge of your seat through the read. This is definitely a book that I would recommend. Sean Michael did an incredible job on this book.

Advanced Review Copy

Galley copy of Unlikely Hero provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time.

I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books.

Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
