Publisher's Summary

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...

    "Great traveling story"

    I've enjoyed reading all of Nora Roberts books. I'm using this series as I drive to and from my vacation home. Makes me look forward to the drive even if there is heavy traffic.

    "Typical Nora Roberts"

    Typical Nora Roberts love trilogy. Can't wait for book two to continue the saga of the four Quinn brothers.

    "Didn't care for the performance"

    I didn't care for the southern accent of the performance. Somehow I don't figure Phillip, a strong city guy, having a weak southern accent or Ethan as pathetic and weak as the accent makes him.

    "It was ok"

    Bad ending and a little hard to relate to the characters. But, I have read worse and I was entertained.

    "Not one of her best"

    Too much sex and poor storyline. I have listened to quite a few of her books and really enjoyed them. Bought this one because it was a Nora Roberts and the description looked interesting. More than once I thought about returning it. Would not recommend this book to anyone.

    I wish the story of the boy would have been wrapped up. I was left with questions.

    "Meh"

    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.

    "Awful"
    What disappointed you about Sea Swept?

    The characters were idiots


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The white queen by Phillippa gregory


    Did David Stuart do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The narrator did a great job. He had a wide range of voice styles.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sea Swept?

    Well none of it was good but the ending was the most brutal.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Disappointed"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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!


    What could Nora Roberts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Widen her vocabulary!


    Would you be willing to try another one of David Stuart’s performances?

    The reader was fine!


    Any additional comments?

    No I won't be purchasing any more Nora Roberts books. Waste of a credit!

    It made me both laugh and cry.

    Had a difficult time trying to stop listening to this book.
