—JOE—
I was doing my job when I rescued Gracyn. But I should
have known better than to bring her back to my cabin.
She has a reputation for getting whatever she wants. I’d
never considered she’d be interested in someone as old
as her father. I wasn’t attracted to anyone so young until
that night. Now I’m in bed with the devil, trying to keep
my buddies from finding out that she’s

This is my first Cavanaugh book and I really liked it. The family’s closeness, the way they can tease and support one another, drew me in. Gracyn was a great heroine - sweet, headstrong, sassy, loyal and hardworking....kind of the perfect woman. Joe had that silver fox vibe going on without too much silver - confirmed bachelor, hardworking, loyal...you see where I’m going with this. They just fit. Make sense...even though they are almost twenty years apart. Although we have a little angst in thi ...more

I loved the instant lust that both Joe and Gracyn had for the other one and how much they tried to fight their most basic instincts. Love is love no matter what age you...age is just a number! Gracyn is definitely the type of woman who can keep Joe on his toes and make him picture a future he never knew he always wanted.

I also enjoyed the family dynamic and Gracyn having two fathers and though I was totally prepared for both of her dads to go all alpha and domineering over the fact that their da

Wow, what a story. I couldn't put it down once started.

Jody Kaye did amazing job on this book. And played with my emotions.

I loved Graysn and Joe together, even though they had everything against them. They still loved each other.

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.This is an older man younger woman story told in a way that is totally original. I love how it comes about that Joe and Gracyn come together even though they have connections through her family/ his friends. It makes it much more complicated when you aren’t a hundred percent sure yourself to then have to keep it secret till you figure it out.

Really the way it is

I love age gap romances, so this book looked really interesting. Beyond the delicious forbidden love factor, I really enjoyed the continuing family drama that surrounds the Cavanaugh family.


First I want to start with Joe because he was a guy I wanted to love but I felt so disconnected with him. He's a close family friend of the Cavanaugh's but his interactions with Gracyn were of strangers meeting for the first time. These two are definitely hot together, don't get me wrong, but I wanted to know

Joe is a police officer who comes to the aid of woman who is stuck on the side of the road only to find out she is his friend’s daughter Gracyn. Due to the weather he brings her back to his home where the chemistry between them ignites. They agree that this evening is all they would have but can they stick to their agreement?

When Gracyn is rescued by Joe she wasn’t expecting the feelings she would have for him or the fact that she couldn’t stay away. What started out as casual, turned into a fri

Oh my holy hotness! Joe and Gracyn are acquaintances. Joe is friends with Gracyn's parents and comes to her rescue during a storm. It quickly escalaltes into a lot more than just acquaintances when they find themselves alone in Joe's cabin.

Joe and Syn are HOT together! Their chemistry and banter keep you pulled into the book. They find themselves keeping their relationship a secret and that ends up blowing up in Syn's face when it comes to her parents, one in particular.

I know that I say this every time I read one of Jody's books, but it is true! I think she can't possibly do better, and then she blows my mind!
Gray Sin is the story of Joe (Brier's former partner and Drew's best friend)and Gracyn (daughter of Adam and Colton), part of the Kingsbrier legacy, but not part of the Kingsbrier Quintuplets series. It could be easily read as a stand-alone; however, having read the books in the series, this story was more like a reunion of old friends.
It is very diffic

Three and a Half Stars ⭐️
“Gray Sin” Was my first book by Jody Kaye. As a huge, huge fan of Forbidden Romance reads I jumped at the chance to read an ARC of this book. Gracyn is a motivated albeit young, businesswoman. She is determined and hardworking. Joe is in law enforcement and her fathers’ good friend. The sparks fly between these two and they end up hooking up. But nothing is simple, especially their attraction to one another. Giving into it leads to all kinds of upheaval and confusion bu

Another first for me with this story and coming across this author. The fun of reading at times is not just reading your favorites but discovering the ones still out there that snare you. This is centered around Joe and Gracyn whom in no time at all have your undivided attention. What started out as one thing turns into something else unfolding for us to see. You do not skip a beat having to see where this goes and if it stays.

This was a great read that kept my interest from the very beginning all the way till the end. It moved along at the perfect speed making it a nice comfortable read. The characters are very well written and you feel as though you know them personally and no matter what you want to see them succeed. The story is great and will you wanting more.

Another amazing story by Jody Kaye! I am a huge fan of the Kingsbrier Quintuplet series, and Gray Sin was the icing on the cake! This is one of the best Older Man/Younger Woman romances I've ever read! Beautifully written with amazing characters, this is another FIVE STAR read for me!

Gray Sin was the first book that I have read from Jody Kaye and I absolutely loved this was the one that introduced me to her writing style because I love a good older man/younger woman story. Joe and Gracyn's banter instantly pulled me in and their chemistry set my heart on fire. Their forbidden romance sent butterflies throughout my entire body and I was on the edge of my seat waiting for their bomb to drop...

Gray Sin by Jody Kaye

Gracyn gets caught in flood waters during a storm. Joe is on his way home and rescues her. Despite having been on the periphery of one another’s lives for years due to mutual friends and family. This is this first time they find themselves thrown together. Alone. For one night.

Overall a great read, with lots to enjoy.
However the descriptive start made it difficult to get past the first few pages and felt the main story line was drawn out with a rushed ending.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Gray Sin by Jody Kaye is part of the The Kingsbrier Legacy Series. This is the story of Joe and Gracyn and the first book I have read by this author...so for me a standalone book.
Joe and Gracyn have known each other via friends and family but never actually been alone or interacted with each other. Joe is the older man to her young self so that added to them never really mixing it up together. But then Gracyn needed saving which Joe was there to save her and they ended up seeing there was a str

Gray Sin is a May-December romance with all the twists and turns you might expect from the Cavanaugh family of the Kingsbrier Quintuplets series. Graycen leads the next generation of the family into love, but that love comes at a cost. Joe is torn between what is right, and what is fate. I love the reveals, the unexpected events, and how the story all comes together in the end. The Cavanaugh legacy lives on!

My first book from this author and I am not disappointed.



There’s so much that I adore about this book I can’t even. This book is big on family. The family tree is definitely complicated and the whole list of character introduction at the beginning was definitely a bit daunting and turn offish for me but it wasn’t hard to piece the characters as you delve into the story. This book definitely pulled me right in, I had no issue with the pacing and loved the dialogue. I devoured it all in one sittin

This book is set after the others, but fits seemlessly in the family.

Gracyn Adair has always been trouble for Joe. As a member of the local police force, he should have been harder on her as a crazy teenager. He just couldn't do it to Temple and Ross's daughter.

Now Joe is saving her again when Gracyn returns to town and manages to get stuck. She has grown up and the attraction between them is strong.

They can't stay apart. Joe is worried about what people will say about the age differance. They

At first I wasn't sure how I felt about Gracyn and Joe's relationship - it was a little because of the age, but more because of Joe's friendships with the quints - it just felt weird. Granted, I'm not usually into books in this genre. No matter what, though...Jody made it work. She convinced me the same way Gracyn and Joe had to convince their friends and family that they should be together. And...like usual...she brought in all of the family and twisted in some other family members' stories, an ...more

First book by Jody Kaye! Probably that’s why I was a bit confused about some events and people, but the author took her time and explained the family tree and who’s who, which helped.
Gracyn and Joe - those two, especially Gracyn fought for them and stood her ground. Joe as well, but Gracyn showed maturity, passion, and devotion, and that age difference is no big deal when it comes to love and family. With Joe they fit, and make perfect sense.

This book was amazing. An emotional roller coaster with a couple unexpected turns. It's not your average love story. While still hot and steamy Gray Sin is also suspenseful, emotional, and full of real life love.
