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...

    "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.

    "Just so-so"
    Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or David Stuart?

    The story lacked a connection with the young boy Seth. I get it is supposed to be a romance novel, and focus on the romantic parties, but really didn't feel a strong connection to the characters.

    David Stuart has an annoying habit of snapping his jaw creating a clashing of teeth during the narration.

    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.

    "Great start to the book and kept on going"

    Cameron Quinn was my favourite character of the four and stayed that way throughout the four books. Ms Roberts gave him real grit and dimension.
