Rising Tides (Chesapeake Bay Saga #2)
There is young Seth, who needs him more than ever. And there is a woman he has always loved but never bel...more
Ray and Stella had taken them in, three half-grown boys, all wild, all damaged, all strangers. And had made them a family.
Oh, my, Grace thought with her nose pressed up against the window. Oh, my. If she’d ever seen two more impressive examples of the male form, she couldn’t say when. She’d 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 of...

Rising Tides continues the story of the Quinn brothers, though focusing on Ethan (the second kid Ray and Stella Quinn adopted) and Grace, a single mother who's been in love with him since always (and who Ethan has been in love with since always as well).
The book is actually too focused on them, on their romance. I would've loved that because I'm a sucke...more

Tooling down the road with my dear hubby on a long trip to Colorado, I had big plans to introduce him to romance by listening to Nora Roberts’ Rising Tides and prove to him that romance could be as good as or better than the occasional Nicholas Sparks book he read. After all, the book is told more from a male perspective and is part of a series abo...more
Rising Tides is the 2nd book in this series. Each book focuses on one of the 4 brothers adopted by Ray and Stella Quinn. Each of the boys had a horrible childhood until they were taken in by the Quinns.
This book tells the story of the 2nd boy, Ethan. Due to the awful things Ethan's bioligical mother allowed to happen to him, Ethan made the decision early in life that he would never allow her genes to be...more
Pero ni con eso me imaginé que esta segunda parte me fuera a gustar más. Bueno, lo hizo. Es más intensa emocionalmente y ya con eso tuvo para agradarme.
Los ojos deslumbrados por el amor eran capaces de ver ciertas cosas con total claridad.
Además me encontré con dos o tres frases que me llegaron, por muy cursis que suenen. Vaya, de sobra está mencionar que son libros dirigidos a entes hormonales.
—Cuando la gente te rompe el cora...more
Ethan's a strong, quiet man and his quietness is so very attractive. I loved how I got to see the many sides of his character, each one showing a glimpse of the real man. Quite simply, you can't help but adore him.
I loved his interactions with...more
The general consensus seems to be that this book isn't as good as the first one, but I have to say I disagree because I totally loved it. I liked the first one a lot but this one really got me.
Our hero Ethan had such an awful past that I really felt my heart breaking for him. I agree with Grace he IS very stupid, but his stupidity is the result of the very best of intentions. Yes, he hurt our poor heroine but I think he honestly didn't see another way ar...more

Set on the windswept shores of the Chesapeake Bay, Nora Roberts's Rising Tides, the second book in the Quinn Brothers trilogy, continues the story of the lives and loves of adopted brothers Ethan, Cameron, and Philip Quinn. Eager to honor their father's dying wish that their other brother, Seth, be cared for, the three settle into life with a 10-year-old. Of all the brothers, it is Ethan who finds himself drawn to the young boy, because both suffered horrific abuse before being a...more
A really really slow paced book just like Ethan
Slow and steady is Ethan virtue but God he is just so damn freaking SLOW
Ethan's a good responsible steady think-through-everything man but he really is dumb sometimes
Cam and Philip is more fun than Ethan
but after reading Ethan's childhood I understand how he got this personality
Rising Tides is the sequel to Sea Swept
we see how the Quinns continue looking after each other especially Seth
I love watching how the Quinns bond with Seth and seein...more
Grace and Ethan,were okay I guess.They were a nice couple,but not one I'll choose for the main one.The whole loving each other from a small age but never saying it out loud business can be cute,but that's not how it was in Rising Tides.It was really annoying.
Okay,I get it.You guys are already in love with each other,so when...more
Nothing much happens here. Seth is even more annoying than ever. He punches Ethan in the face twice, and a few more times in the stomach. Actually punches him, with all his might! The stupid little kid! Yeah, he had a sucky few years of childhood, but that doesn't give him the right to punch his guardian! And not even get in trouble for it! I'm sorry, but Ethan should at least have yelled a...more
Mais uma estória linda acerca dos irmãos Quinn, desta vez com Ethan como foco principal. Tal como os seus irmãos, teve uma infância conturbada, vítima de abusos verbais e físicos, o que o tornou inseguro e cauteloso. Ethan é um homem sereno, calmo e ponderado, mas profundamente apaixonado por Grace, uma mulher lutadora e mãe solteira que fará tudo para garantir um futuro para a sua pequena filha. Contudo, Ethan não deixa transparecer os seu...more

However, though they may not be bound by blood these brothers are bound by love and loyalty and the legacy their adoptive parents left for them. Now together again they are doing right by their father and cooper...more
Apesar de dar 4 estrelas, estas 4 estrelas são mais pequeninas que as que dei ao primeiro volume. Estou a adorar a saga, no entanto preferi o livro anterior. Este foca-se mais na história de amor de Grace e Ethan, que achei lindíssima e ainda me arrancou umas lagriminhas no fim. Aprofunda também mais a história de vida de Seth e isso deixou-me com muita curiosidade quanto ao próximo.
Obrigada Ne pelo empréstimo :)
