    Rising Tides is the second book in Nora Roberts Chesapeake Bay Quinn Brothers saga It features the middle brother, Ethan, who was the 2nd boy rescued by Ray and Stella Quinn and given a new life He s the epitome of the saying still waters run deep Ethan may be able to hold his own in a fight with his brothers, but he prefers to take things slow, to think them through and doesn t see the need to chatter unless there s something that really needs to be said He s battered and scarred from Rising Tides is the second book in Nora Roberts Chesapeake Bay Quinn Brothers saga It features the middle brother, Ethan, who was the 2nd boy rescued by Ray and Stella Quinn and given a new life He s the epitome of the saying still waters run deep Ethan may be able to hold his own in a fight with his brothers, but he prefers to take things slow, to think them through and doesn t see the need to chatter unless there s something that really needs to be said He s battered and scarred from a tragic childhood that haunts him to this day The abuse he suffered has kept him from acting on his feelings for young single mother Grace Monroe, but with Seth in the picture, Ethan finds that not only has his life drastically changed, but he can t keep his feelings for Grace a secret any longer.This is yet another highly enjoyable book from Nora Roberts I liked it almost as much as book 1 in the series Ethan is such an interesting character At times he s just as rough and tumble as Cam but at other times, he s a quiet loner His tragic childhood is heartbreaking and it makes you just want to give him a big hug and maybe a kiss or two When it comes to his relationship with Grace, you can really see how the past still haunts him and causes endless conflict Roberts played that out perfectly, especially the resolution.Normally I don t enjoy books with kids in them, but Grace s daughter Aubrey is just too cute for words I really liked her small parts in the book And I liked Grace as well She was a real sweetheart.One of the great things about this book, and common to NR trilogy books, is that even though the book focuses on one couple in this case Ethan and Grace you still get plenty of the other characters They are still a basis of the story It really helps you to know them better and develops this amazing sense of family and togetherness.And another great thing about the book is the progression of Seth s story It was touching to read about how much he s improved since the Quinn s took him in He s growing and starting to put the past behind him I love the interactions he has with everyone For a 10 year old, he s a really strongly developed character.If you read and enjoyed Sea Swept then you should definitely read this book, and you ll most likely enjoy it It is a great continuation of the series and just an all round nice romance to read

    Final rating 4.75 5 starsAnother great book in the series And another sudden ending, but I m getting used to it since all stories are connected and the character stories don t end with each book as they appear through all 4 books This time story focus is on Ethan, the second brother, continuing directly after the last book ended And I loved it I admit I was frustrated sometimes with the beating around the bush thing going on between the two center characters but I also loved it and I m glad Final rating 4.75 5 starsAnother great book in the series And another sudden ending, but I m getting used to it since all stories are connected and the character stories don t end with each book as they appear through all 4 books This time story focus is on Ethan, the second brother, continuing directly after the last book ended And I loved it I admit I was frustrated sometimes with the beating around the bush thing going on between the two center characters but I also loved it and I m glad I read this story too The other side of the story was focused on Seth, although a bit less than the first book There is a lot of darkness in each one of the brothers pasts and whenever they are happy, it makes me happy as well Nora deals with some heavy themes in these books as each and every single brother in Quinn s household went through many traumatic events of each kind But they went through the worst and darkest parts in their lives and stepped into the light with the help provided by two people who only wanted to save lost souls And Ethan has definitely one of the worst pasts out of everyone And Nora dealt with his traumas as it should and concluded his story as was necessary And Seth is strongly developed character for a 10 year old kid and whenever he is happy, it makes me happy All of the brothers and the people around them deserve to be happy STORY The story continues right after the wedding of Cameron and Anna After leaving on the honeymoon, Ethan Quinn was left to deal with Seth most of the days Phillip works during the work days in other city, and comes only at weekend But Ethan doesn t mind that he could use some peace and quiet The boat building business the three now four of them started was going smoothly and the situation settles down for a bit.Ethan has admired their housekeeper from afar is in love with her for years, but his traumatic past makes him unable to approach her and tell her the truth And Grace Monroe is a single mother of a child, divorced and alone But doing fine, quite fine, despite being in strained relationship with her own father If only Ethan would realize she set her eyes on him years ago Seth is doing fine, much better than before, but there is still a looming threat above their heads concerning Seth s mother and her schemes to get what she wants The plot takes place 3 months after the death of Ray Quinn CHARACTERS Ethan , 30 years old, was saved when he was 12 from the past that brutally broke him physically as well as mentally He was saved by the kindness of Quinns, but they could never fix him completely He still has nightmares and the emotional scars left have scarred him worse than anything Afraid of perusing relationship, he could only stand by and be friends with the woman he loves Afraid of ruining her and tainting her because of what happened him, he stays calculated, calm, patient and alone Painfully alone His past affects everything he does making him a person who would rather be alone that hurt anyone unwillingly He is painfully shy, very concerned and overly protective when it comes to people he loves, but when it comes to Grace Monroe, he just loses it whenever something bad happens Which often leads to saying things that definitely sound wrong in her ears the exact things she really, really doesn t want to hear Ethan has known Grace for years Having almost 8 years difference only made him wait for longer but he is still very afraid to approach her on that matter and say three simple things i love you He is absolutely captivated by her daughter and loves her a lot While he can express himself wrongly, he does know when to say things at the right time, no matter how much it hurts him Grace , 22 year old single mother, is a family friend of Quinns for years Being their house keeper and cleaning up whenever she can, that being her job, she took onjobs to survive Having a strained and difficult relationship with her own father after she got divorced after giving birth to her beautiful daughter Aubrey, made her onlydetermined to show that she can do everything alone Her pride wouldn t take no for an answer And her stubbornness evenso Despite her pride and stubbornness, she takes everything said to her to heart and is quick to come to conclusions, but is also strong and very defiant and when she needs to prove a point, she doesn t back down from the fight But, she is now very afraid that she would lose her job to Anna, having just married into the family and being concurrence for the house touches And that would make her unable to find excuses anywhere near Ethan whom she admired for years Seth is gettingandrelaxed after finally realizing that the brothers, now his brothers, won t give up on him and that he would not return to his mother by their choice Making friends and rocking at school, and drawing the ships for his new brothers, he is getting accustomed to his new life nicely, but nightmares still come to him and he has still that wary look in the eyes What he needed the most was someone who had survived what he had and Ethan, despite the pain it brings him to share his past with anyone, would tell him about it rather than let the guilt and fear stab Seth from the inside He needed to know, so he could connect with someone who went through something similar and open up a bitI am so, so damn glad he view spoiler managed to escape each time and was not subjected to that horror of what Ethan s own mother did to him hide spoiler Quinn familyCam and Anna function greatly together and they are wonderful that way They complete each other up Anna shows her support many times through the book, knocking the sense in Ethan and Grace and being a little Cupid Cam and Phillip are quite supportive over Seth s situation and are still fighting for him, no matter what and are getting to enjoy their new business evenso Monroe familyWhile the relationship is quite broken between father and daughter, it s not so strained between mother and daughter who shows support to her whenever she can OVERALL Wonderful book I can t wait to read the other two book left in the series All of these babies deserve a happy endingLIKEDRelationships of the Quinns and that of Ethan and GraceDISLIKEDsudden ending, but now it s becoming a pattern sometimes being frustrated by Ethan and Grace trying to get a hang on the situations OTHER IMPORTANT INFOStandalone No Part of a series DO NOT READ AS STAND ALONE BOOK,

    The second book in the series picks up right where Sea Swept left off Anna and Cam are on their honeymoon, Phillip is commuting to the house on the bay every weekend to help build the new boat and care for their new brother, Seth Seth is finally blending into his new family with help from Ethan, the steady, thoughtful, fisherman craftsman who now has his eyes set on somethingthan just the next crab pot But can he let go of his past in order to finally move forward What I Liked The The second book in the series picks up right where Sea Swept left off Anna and Cam are on their honeymoon, Phillip is commuting to the house on the bay every weekend to help build the new boat and care for their new brother, Seth Seth is finally blending into his new family with help from Ethan, the steady, thoughtful, fisherman craftsman who now has his eyes set on somethingthan just the next crab pot But can he let go of his past in order to finally move forward What I Liked The character development Ethan and Grace are clearly the focus of this book, and we learn about their depth of emotion and past struggles And we also continue to learnabout all the other characters that were introduced in the first book as well The series continues to build on itself without feeling crowded or rushed The little nuances of NR s writing We get to see, hear, and smell everything Grace s bruised leg, the clumsy puppy chasing balls, the manic bird closing out the day, the lemony scent of perfume in the air, the warm colors of the sinking sun These small touches are what makes good books even better What I Could Have Done Without The cigar smoking by the MC This is a personal thing and doesn t have any bearing on the story itself however, since it s my review What I Wanted More Of I am trying so hard to be patient with learning about Seth s true paternity Common sense tells me that this all too important fact won t be revealed until the 4th book in the series, Chesapeake Blue where Seth is the focus , but I m still chomping at the bit to getdetails hints clues than we have been given so far.A solid 3.5 star book I would know this was Nora Roberts book even if her name wasn t on the cover A few points kept it from a higher rating, but those were personal and did not take away from the overall experience of the book On to Inner Harbor

only intended to sneak a quick glance Really Just one innocent little peek But then Ethan had peeled off his shirt and Another multiple re read I don t tire ofThis book picks up where the first ended but the pace is different, matching the MCs personalities Ethan is a waterman He literally breaths and lives the sea Come hell or high water, everyday at dawn he is out on his fishing boat He is the solitary of the three Quinns brothers The quite one Contrary to Cam, he likes to think things thoroughly before making his movesYou were meant to be ours Meant to be here Took to the water like you d been born in it Cam, he always just wanted to go fast, and Phillip preferred to sit back and enjoy the ride But you He turned back again, his gaze thoughtful You studied every inch of the boat, every wave, every turn of a river You d practice tying knots for hours, and nobody had to nag you into swabbing the decks It came easy for me, right from the start Christ, you were a spooky kid, Ethan Quiet as a shadow, deep as a lake And that smile It takes, like, ten minutes for it to finish moving over his face, and by then, man, you are drooling But when he let goBut, oh, he had a need, one that swamped him like a storm surge and left him floundering.The gentler, sweeter emotion that shimmered from him was so calmer than that first whip of greed it only gilded the edges of the yearning he d stirred Grace is a young single mother She is fiercely independant and working hard to built her baby girl a beautiful future, juggling with as many jobs as she can take She had a sheltered childhood and it s seems like she always was in love with EthanBecause she s rock steady, pretty as a picture, patient as Job, and she s got enough humor about life to tickle out yours But the fact was, growing up, there had only been two things she d wanted The dance, and Ethan Quinn Damn, she s the best thing that ever happened to you I don t just mean the sex, though that s got to be part of what s perked you up around here lately The woman fits you like the proverbial glove Her feelings for Ethan are mutual The problem is Ethan believes he s too damaged for someone as bright and pure as GraceThere were shadows in those eyes that Ethan also recognized The wounded recognized the wounded He knew that Seth s life, before Ray had taken him on, had been a nightmare He d lived through one himself Sometimes it still comes back on me Pain and shame And the sweaty fear of knowing what s going to happen And between Ethan stubborness and Grace shyness, they most certainly need all the help they can get and that was funnyNot saying different Just saying slow Seen them moony eyed over each other since before that boy got his own workboat Has to be nearly ten years passed Stella and I bless her soul had a conversation over it a time or two Rabbits, he said slowly Probably Rabbits Yeah He shifted uncomfortably, wishing to Christ he d at least gotten his pants on before she burst in Rabbits can be a problem with gardens They just hop up and help themselves Rabbits, she said again Could be deer, he added, just a little desperately They d graze over and eat every damn thing down to stubs Counting on pity, he shot a look at Cam RightLMAO Seth is still in the heart of the story Grace is the first woman, he trully trusts and loves and he hasthings in commun with Ethan that he thinks The way he settles in his new life is thrilling as well as heartbreakingHe didn t want them to know he was waiting for them or that he was excited that they would be home any minute But he was He couldn t understand why he was all pumped up about it They d only been gone a couple of weeks, and Cam was a pain in the ass most of the time anyway.Seth grabbed his sandpaper and began to work furiously And blindly His eyes were dazzled, his heart in his throat It happened whenever one of them referred to him as a Quinn.Well, he was going to watch and he was going to see He could still run if things got sticky Though the idea of running made his stomach hurt in a way it had never done before He d discovered that the Quinns kept their word It was a new and wonderful concept to him, a promise kept If they probe it now, he knew it would hurtthan anything had hurt him before

    This book needs a major trigger warning there is child abuse Although it s in the past it is still very disturbing Ethan had a horrific childhood By the time the Quinn s saved him he was almost dead and completely without hope They helped him to heal but he still carried a hurt on his soul and never saw himself worthy of love, marriage and especially children Grace always loved him A strong single mother She is willing to work hard and gives heartily to others, but her pride keeps her This book needs a major trigger warning there is child abuse Although it s in the past it is still very disturbing Ethan had a horrific childhood By the time the Quinn s saved him he was almost dead and completely without hope They helped him to heal but he still carried a hurt on his soul and never saw himself worthy of love, marriage and especially children Grace always loved him A strong single mother She is willing to work hard and gives heartily to others, but her pride keeps her from Ethan This is a beautiful love story and hard to put down

    Better than the first book, I think, but not by a lot Ethan isn t the demanding jerkwad that Cam is, but he has his own neuroses and it was layered on rather thick The whole I m tragically flawed and must be alone thing was rather self indulgent and that stood against every other aspect of his life.That said, Grace was nine kinds of awesome, even if view spoiler she did go kind of stupid with the whole assuming Ethan just needed her to take the steps to advance their relationship She shou Better than the first book, I think, but not by a lot Ethan isn t the demanding jerkwad that Cam is, but he has his own neuroses and it was layered on rather thick The whole I m tragically flawed and must be alone thing was rather self indulgent and that stood against every other aspect of his life.That said, Grace was nine kinds of awesome, even if view spoiler she did go kind of stupid with the whole assuming Ethan just needed her to take the steps to advance their relationship She should have known he wasn t that kind of stupid, I think hide spoiler Anyway, this is a series where I wouldn t skip and if you read the first, you know pretty much what to expect with this one I think this one is marginally better, so at least it s moving in the right direction.A note about Steamy Medium for me, so Roberts standard, though I think this one ran to three explicit scenes I finished a few days ago and sadly, I don t remember exactly While it was a little cheap how the scenes played into Ethan s insecurities in certain ways, view spoiler I also appreciated how Grace was able to turn that into a positive by owning her appreciation for and participation in their very mild demand surrender sex play as an equally responsible partner hide spoiler

    Awwww you know,until I discovered this author I considered myself a practical, levelheaded and down to Earth kind of woman Not all the time, but most of it I try to be reasonable and sensible when I have to make a decision I never fuss or get distressed on situations that tend to make most people altered and upset What I m trying to say is that I m not of the emotional type,the analyze every freaking detail before making a decision type of girl So then why do I keep getting surprise Awwww you know,until I discovered this author I considered myself a practical, levelheaded and down to Earth kind of woman Not all the time, but most of it I try to be reasonable and sensible when I have to make a decision I never fuss or get distressed on situations that tend to make most people altered and upset What I m trying to say is that I m not of the emotional type,the analyze every freaking detail before making a decision type of girl So then why do I keep getting surprise when I end up all teary eyed about Nora Robert s books Where is that woman I just described Where s the practicality when you get all mushy and soft by reading a book LOL All I have to say is that I adore the way this author writes cont romance and I truly hope she never stops.While I was worried sick I wouldn t like this book because Ethan and Grace seemed a bit boring and steady, I was thrilled to see I was completely wrong and both of them had temper It just took them a bit long to find it but it was definitely there And I adored both of them evenbecause they ended up being who they were after all the terrible things that happened to them both It takes a strong person to become a good one after all the 4 brothers went through, so how not to love them Seth is becoming an amazing boy as well and even though some trouble will definitely be coming on the next books I have no doubt the 4 of them will be able to solve everything if they stick together They are an amazing family, brothers of the heart and I respect them evenfor having such strong feelings for each other even though they are not blood Can t wait to read

    Another sweet read I liked Ethan and Grace although Ethan was a bit stubborn at times I know he had a tough upbringing prior to meeting the Quinns, but Interesting storyline about Seth Want to keep reading so that I find out what the little mystery is but might wait a while I really think some of these older kindle books should be a bit cheaper But that is just me, probably.Nice to catch up with the characters from the first book Another sweet read I liked Ethan and Grace although Ethan was a bit stubborn at times I know he had a tough upbringing prior to meeting the Quinns, but Interesting storyline about Seth Want to keep reading so that I find out what the little mystery is but might wait a while I really think some of these older kindle books should be a bit cheaper But that is just me, probably.Nice to catch up with the characters from the first book
