I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Okay I admit I had a hard time with the heroine being named Ginny since that is my sister's name. Let's face it's hard to imagine a sibling in any sort of romance book role and every time I read her name my sister is all I could think about. That being said this is still a really sweet read.

Eric and Ginny have a plan which includes Eric working in the family con

Oh, how I love this series! I first “met” Jody Kaye when I read Cavanaugh, the story of Ross Cavanaugh and Rose Kinsbrier. I fell in love with everything about the story!
Eric is the story of one of the Kingsbrier quintuplets - Rose and Ross’ children. The quints are now eighteen and cut off from the family fortune until they are twenty-five. They must make their way in the world, before they can receive their inheritance.
Eric and his girlfriend, Ginny have a plan - a four year plan. Eric will

Eric and his siblings (a set of quintuplets living on a Texas ranch) have just graduated high school - and are all on different paths. What one planned in the naive land of high school is not always the the future that will happen. Eric and his girlfriend, Ginny, have their lives ahead of them. Through his eyes and others, we are drawn quickly and deeply into the quints' lives. As the high school sweethearts deal with an unexpected pregnancy, we see the couple grow up suddenly before our eyes.

The Kingsbriers are a set of quintuplets who the reader meets as they are about to graduate. They come from a good family, and from money, but their inheritance will be kept in trust for a few years so they can learn to get out into the world and support themselves. While we meet all of them, and start to get to know them, this first novel in the series focuses on Eric and his girlfriend Ginny. They have their whole lives planned out for them...until those plans get thrown off track by a surpris ...more

What a great start to a series. I really enjoyed this book. It had so many twists and turns. And we got to know each of the Quintuplets.

I loved Eric and Ginny together, you could tell they had an forever love. Even with secrets from beginning.

They may of been young, but they made it work.

Jody Kaye did amazing job on this book.

This book was more than just the first in the series, it sets the entire series up and gives us more than just Eric's story. To truly understand the family and Eric, you have to know the rest of the Quintuplets and it was a great start to the book. I am not usually a huge fan of 3rd person point of view, but it was a sweet romance that sets the stage for an unforgettable series! ...more

It took me a little while to get into the book Eric as it was very dialogue rich. I had to take a few notes on who everyone was. The four quintuplets and another sister plus their partners. But after Chapter 5, I got the story and it was easier to follow.

This is a story about growing up. Without giving away too much it tackles the issues of pregnancy before marriage and going to University.

I enjoyed the sections on Brier and related to her the most throughout the book. Her comments about cuttin

I really enjoyed Eric and Ginny's story. It brought so many emotions out of me. Happy, sad, scared, love, and romantic. It was reality. It was a page turner, wanting to find out what happened next. I loved how Eric's two sisters and two brothers were there for each other. To be quintuplet teenagers and have the love of family but responsibilities. I loved how Eric stepped up to his responsibilities as did Ginny. Wow! I am looking forward to reading about this family more. A 5 star book for sure. ...more

This story is told from basically nearly all of the characters’ points of view, which I love because you get the thought processes. Ginny panicked about leaving her boyfriend behind when she was to go to college and went off birth control without telling him, changing all of their plans when she got pregnant before graduating high school. This is about growing up and moving on for all of the family as they go forward to college, work, and (for Eric and Ginny) parenthood.

I just loved the characters in this book from the very first chapter. This is not the type of book I usually read but I really enjoyed it, it was quick and easy to read and well written. I think everyone can relate to one of the quints and I can't wait to read more about them! ...more

What an interesting read. The title of this book is Eric, but it is so much more than Eric and Ginny's story. Eric is one in a family of five, but the fact that those five are quintuplets makes the novel all the more interesting. The author does a good job of the individual personalities. Sure there are a lot of characters, but they are well written.

I especially like Coulton. He is a bit of a bad boy initially, but certainly has a story to tell, and I suspect, a heart of gold deep down.

Interesting family saga. What a unique idea to write about quintuplets. They are all so different yet so close and protective of each other. Eric is the main character of this story. He turns into quite a great man at such a young age. Jenny, his girlfriend/fiancé/wife is a character you just want to hug and comfort. The author did a good job of giving a little bit of insight into each character while still focusing on Eric and Jenny.

Nice book

I would say definitely a young adult book. Story about quintuplets who graduate high school and start to spread their wings. This one was Eric's story but all the siblings are present w/ some stories started more than others. Appears to be a great start on a family series.

A great start to the Kingsbrier Quintuplets. Eric had to let go of the hurt from what his girlfriend did. And Ginny had to except that she did something wrong and figure out how to move forward. They store was really good and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

I have read this book twice now and both times it was excellent. The book is steamy without being trashy. It has romance without being cheesy. Jody Kaye hit just the right balance of what I feel a book should be. The story is easy to follow and easy to lose yourself in.

The story was cute, but a little cliche. It moved well enough but could have used a professional editor. I'm on the fence about reading the next one, but recommend this for youth late teens/college age. ...more

The Kingsbrier Quintuplets

This story introduces you to the lives of quintuplets as they graduate from high school

The key focus is Eric. Who is also a twin. And follows how he deals with a surprise that throws him off his original ‘life plan’,

However this book also introduces Eric’s siblings, parents, friends and colleagues.

Despite the number of ‘cast’ introduced, time is given getting to know each individual, their background, POV and characteristics. Fueling the desire to keep reading.
