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...

    "Three men and a baby..."

    Ok, the baby is actually a 10 year old boy named Seth and the men are his three older brothers, Cameron, Ethan and Philip. This was a heart warming story of the importance of family and as well as an entertaining romance. I really look forward to the rest of the series.

    "Terrible Narrator"

    I love the Quinn brothers and this series and the narrator completely butchered it for me. I'm going to try the 3rd one with Phillip since it's a new narrator and hopefully it won't be too terrible. Phillip sounds like a girl right now....

    Story
    "Not what I expected"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have many Nora Roberts books. I generally like them a lot. For me there was too much sex. The story wasn't as good. The characters were a bit rough and angry. This won't stop me from getting more because this is the first one I haven't liked


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Roberts again?

    I already have two more ready to listen too.


    What three words best describe David Stuart’s performance?

    David was Okay. Not remarkable but not bad.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I guess it was full of hope and personal change.


    Any additional comments?

    I have to realize this was her first, I think. She sure got a lot better

    "I'm becoming a Nora fan"
    Where does Sea Swept rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Nora Roberts seems to have a good formula for romantic stories, yet the plots are so different each time. It's similar to, yet different from, her other books.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book and plan to look up others in the Chesapeake Bay series

    Story
    "Nothing unique - very predictable."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If my friend likes light, predictable soap opera-esque books then, yes.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Roberts? Why or why not?

    I have liked Nora Roberts' books in the past but feel I have outgrown them. This book offered nothing unique, thought provoking or educational.


    Was Sea Swept worth the listening time?

    It kept me entertained enough while painting my walls but wouldn't listen to it again.

    Ana, the social worker.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Seth falls off the roof.

    Story
    "Too Much Drama"

    I would have enjoyed this book more if the main characters were not portrayed as people who feel the need to do dramatic things such as throw dishes at each other. Nora Roberts seems to be confused about how to portray someone as a fully living human unless they get stupid and act in ways that I would not let my kids act in! She also seems to think they need to get violent with each other to prove their love. I am not buying it! It is a shame because I liked the basic story line if it could have had less drama.
