Give and Take (The Thorne Brothers #2) by Lee Kilraine was a okay read that has those good feels and some good chucking moments.
My first read by this author and for this series, they read as standalones so no worries about reading out of order. This was a fun, light heart read that had me sort of hooked. I’ll tell you why, it just felt like something I’ve read before that and, there was just something bothering be about our female MC.
I’ve read a lot of these types of books this year, and you start to see a pattern. And as much as the writing is witty and the feels are good, I just wasn’t fully sucked into the story. There was this far-fetchedness to it that just kept pulling me out. Our female MC Rhia, she was a good character, but at times I felt like she was, too much, just a little. I didn’t care much for the way her family acted, especially her older sister. Maybe because I come from such a supporting family, that I just don’t get how people that are suppose to love you just, are so disapproving and mean. I didn’t like the the way it was implied that Rhia wasn’t as smart as the rest of her family. I mean, starting a business, an event planning one, isn’t anything to laugh at. Rhia is just as smart as her overachieving sister/family. She just using her brain and intelligence in a different, more creative way, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
As for Wyatt, I liked him very much. He had this spark and really stood out. I don’t want to call him a alpha, because though he showed those cliché’s, he also didn’t. He is what kept me reading, I loved it when it was his turn to tell the story. I think if this whole story was told in his POV, it would have been just… bamd! Just my opinion. Or maybe even starting with him, instead of Rhia.
Overall this book is as I said, a fun, witty, light heart read that is packed full of good feels, frustrating moments and all that romantic drama we romance lovers crave. This books gets my high recommendation and my stamp of approval.
