Coming-of-Age / Family Saga
Standalone in the Kingsbrier Quintuplets series
Series number: 4
Since quitting med school, Adam Cavanaugh has lied about everything, and the truth is catching
up with him. He knows it’s time to prove he’s someone his family can be proud of.
Temple has high standards—ones Adam will never reach. But he wants a woman like her in his
life someday and is willing to let Temple teach him how to be a better man. That is, if he can
keep his heart out of the equation.
Who would have guessed that her perfect life was an illusion? Or that she was falling for him
too? And when Adam’s conscience compels him to tell the truth about his past, will his deceit
stop Temple from trusting anyone ever again?
“No bridesmaid to hook-up with tonight? Let me guess.” Temple lifted a finger. “Daveigh’s
friends are smart enough to not let you anywhere near them?” Temple glanced around the bar
as if she was looking for someone with loose morals whom she could direct his attention to.
“It’s the other way around. I know not to get involved with my sister’s friends.” He leaned in,
mocking her and whispering in her ear over the noise of the crowd. “They’re too good for me.”
Temple’s eyes were wide when he pulled back. Then she shrugged it off, placing her elbow on
the bar and propping her knuckles up under her chin. “Glad you know your place.”
She really didn’t like him and Adam was torn between being a nice guy and a full-on douche.
“You might want to watch out for the glass,” he reminded before inquiring, “Why are you here
“I needed dinner and was out of wine.” The drink seemed like the most important part so he
asked her how many glasses she’d consumed. There wasn’t a plate on the bar and, luckily, the
guy on the opposite side was with a date. However, his training made him keenly aware that
Temple attracted attention from other dark corners. “Two, no three. I ordered a third when I
“Where’s your husband?”
“Out of town.”
“How are you getting home?”
“I have a car…Wait!” She smacked her forehead. “Are you propositioning me? For some
reason, I figured you’d be smoother than that. Kingsbrier, you have a reputation to uphold. I’m,”
she was pensive for a second, rubbing where she’d hit, “disappointed.”
Disappointed, he mouthed. Considering who was saying it and that the comment was about
him, it made perfect sense.
“I’m going to drive you home. That’s all.”. She frowned. “I need my car.”
“Not tonight you don’t.” They’d figure a way to get her back here to pick it up once she was
Temple looked away. She placed a finger on the smooth part of the broken base, sliding it
toward her. “If I’d cut myself would you’f sewn it up?” She slurred and he was glad he offered.
“Yeah.” He snagged her purse off of the chair back and placed it on her shoulder so Temple
didn’t absently forget it. As they stood she lost her balance, catching herself with a palm to his
chest and patting him there distastefully.
“Gotta love the Hippocratic Oath. I’d save you too, Kingsbrier. Even if I hate you.”

I am a HUGE fan of Jody Kaye! I was hooked the instant I started reading Cavanaugh, the precursor story to the Kingsbrier Quints series, and nothing I have read since has disappointed me!
Adam, book 4 in the series, is Adam’s story. The oldest of the Quints, by only minutes, and heir to the Kingsbrier fortune, Adam has been running from his family, his legacy, and the expectations that come with being the eldest and heir. Expected to take over the family business, Adam chooses instead to go to medical school and become a doctor; however, that didn’t happen. He left med school for the military, and never clued anyone in. Now, Adam has been discharged and his family is still none the wiser. Adam keeps up the facade, while working for a security firm far, far from home.
Unsettled, and unsatisfied with the man he has become, he knows he needs to come clean with his loved ones, but he wants to be able to show them proof that he is becoming a man that they can be proud of before doing so. Of course, that never works, as lie piles upon lie, and just digs Adam further into the hole.
I really loved Adam’s story. I laughed and I ugly cried. Jody has that effect on me. Her story-lines are engaging from the start, full of emotion, and you never know what is coming next.
The characters are so well developed that I feel as if I know them. It is fun coming back to this series and the characters that I love so much – in fact, I am going back through and reading them again.
I believe that while Adam is book 4 in the series, it could be read as a stand-alone. There is a backstory that would be missing; however, Jody does an outstanding job of weaving the stories together, and allowing you to understand the intricacies and dynamics of the relationships without having to go back to the start. I highly recommend reading the entire series, though, as I know you will love the family as much as I do! ❤️❤️
