Meh is about all I can say. Weak and predictable. Not her best work. Don't waste the credits. The next two are just as meh IMO.
The characters were idiots
The white queen by Phillippa gregory
The narrator did a great job. He had a wide range of voice styles.
Well none of it was good but the ending was the most brutal.
I feel like I was misled by good reviews. This book made me roll my eyes a lot but the narrator did a great job.
Not so much bad launguage. Stopped listening after the 2nd chapter it was so ridiculous. There was no need for that much foul language. It makes you wonder if they couldn't think of anything better to say just throw in a whole bunch of cussing! I'm only 35 and I thought Really!!! That was so disappointing!
Widen her vocabulary!
The reader was fine!
No I won't be purchasing any more Nora Roberts books. Waste of a credit!
The story line was sweet.
When Cam started to love Seth, but he didn't even know it.
It made me both laugh and cry.
Had a difficult time trying to stop listening to this book.
I LOVE books. And dogs & quilting & beading & volunteering.
I honestly thought this series of 4 books was written 15-20 years ago..it seems to be a classic in her genre.
David Stuart is an excellent narrator who gave a typical and not always touching Roberts book a touch of class. Both the first and second book in the series are narrated by Stuart, the 3rd and 4th novels in the series are good, narration wise, but not of the same quality.
The 4 books in this series take place in the Chesapeake Bay part of the eastern seaboard, the 4 protagonists, all adopted step brothers whose early childhood years were those of abuse and terror. Novel 1, Sea Swept, tells the story of European playboy and fast car and/or boat driver Cameron Quinn. A man whose life is now one of supermodels, road races, winning tickets and a future of fun and sex. As I said...a typical Roberts story arc that manages to excite and enthuse readers.
However it turns out that this novel is of excellent Nora Roberts style and between the 3rd and 4th novels the quality remains 5 star
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
yes as David Stuart made Cam come to life
all of the brothers and of course Foolish, the dog
he is just plain sexy as all get out. Some listeners have not always appreciated his style, but I have re listened to this story many times. Makes you feel good
this is a series, so if you like them, then this is a classic not to miss. Remember these stories are from N.R. early good writing days. 4 books in all not to miss if you are a classic NR fan. Simple enjoyment, No FSOG at all.
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
This was a great story about how 3 VERY different foster [now adult] brothers, the Quinn's, must work together for their father's dying wish to keep their dad's latest 'charge' as part of the family.
Along with trying to make everything work to keep the deathbed wish, there is mystery about the father's auto accident, Seth (the latest charge's paternity), social worker, foster home, etc. There is a lot here and was a bit frustrated as the end came and there were so many ends to be tied up and the minutes were flying by...so I was PLEASANTLY SURPRISED to find it was the beginning of a series.
This is Cameron's story...
A champion boat racer, Cameron Quinn traveled the world spending his winnings on champagne and women. But when his dying father calls him home to care for Seth, a troubled young boy not unlike Cameron once was, his life changes overnight.
After years of independence, Cameron has to learn to live with his brothers again, while he struggles with cooking, cleaning, and caring for a difficult boy. Old rivalries and new resentments flare between Cameron and his brothers, but they try to put aside their differences for Seth's sake.
In the end, a social worker, as tough as she is beautiful, will decide Seth's fate. She has the power to bring the Quinns together - or tear them apart...
His diversity of portraying the adult men in the story shows his talent...he also did well with the younger and female characters.
I don't know why, but it seems Nora Roberts has a need to stick a degree of paranormal in every book. I'm not a fan, I like to stay in the 'here and now'. However, there were only 3 brief conversations between Cameron and his deceased father.
Personally, I don't think they were necessary to the story and I almost turned it off after the first scene (I dislike those sorts of stories THAT much) but I'm glad I stuck through.
Creditworthy...4 Solid stars
Definite good choice. I am a big NR listener..this is Nora at her best
Read the complete series...Excellent...loved all the characters and stories
Roberts is a prolific and popular writer. I was interested to check out some of her work. So, of course, this was a well presented story. But I certainly was not one of her target readers. Rare for me, lots of fast forwarding, well, to see if what happens in the end is what is clearly going to happen in the end! It just went on and on. However it is an optomistic read for women who need the hope imbedded in a saga of tough no-housework, no-children, no-settling-down men being converted into dedicated and skilled family men.
