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...

    Audible started me reading fiction again. What a treat to have professional actors narrating a book I may not have had the time to "read".

    "Boring and predictable. Save your credit."

    Disappointing overall. Story was hard to believe. Characters uninteresting and unlikable overall. Not up to other Nora Roberts books.

    "Great story...voices..eh"

    I have this series in print, but I do a lot of driving and need some great books to listen to. Nora always provides great storylines! However, this audio has some not-so great voices for the male characters. Cameron was great, but Ethan and Philip are so very feminine. I am going to listen to the samples of their books in this series before buying, because I can't imagine listening to either of those girly voices for a whole book! Especially Ethan! He should sound very rugged, not soft and girly! 😂

    "Better than I thought, sweeter than I remembered, more "intimate " than imagined...loved it"

    Kept me wondering and can't wait to read the next one. I didn't think it would be this interesting: it has a little of everything in it and the suspense is pretty sweet.

    "One of Nora's Best: love the romance & brotherhood"

    Book 1 of one of Nora's best series. Lovely romance; great relationships between the 4 brothers; some suspense. So very worth the cash or credit, both book or audio. Stuart's narration is decent.

    "Really??"

    So I got this book as part of a sale. I liked the story, that's why I gave it 3 stars. What I absolutely hated was the violence between Anna and Cam. She's a social worker who works with battered wives and kids yet she thinks it's ok to punch or throw things when she's mad? Cam and his brothers fist fight. Unbelievable.

    I have listened to the series before. There are some stories you just have to revisit. This is one.
