Give and Take (The Thorne Brothers Book 2)
By Lee Kilraine
5 Stars

Lee Kilraine knocks it out of the park with this fab book! Give and Take is an opposites attract book. From her witty one-liners to the steamy romance. This book delivers it all!

Wyatt Thorne is the quiet brother. With his mother’s abandonment, Wyatt was severely traumatized and it took a lot for him to get back on track. He loves his job and the quiet rhythm it provides to steady his life. But a helping hand his brother delivers to Rhia shakes up his world more than he is comfortable with.

Rhia has a reputation for being reckless. And yes, when she was younger that was true. But she has grown up and now wants to prove that she has put that recklessness in her past. A helping hand from one of the owners of Six Brothers Construction is just what she needs to get her new business off the ground. But opposition in the form of Wyatt Thorne is not making it easy. His annoying ways make her want to do reckless things. Can Wyatt learn to appreciate the quirks and outspokenness of Rhia and see what she is hiding inside? Can Rhia get past Wyatt’s gruff exterior and help heal his wounds and show him that a little recklessness can be good for the soul?

I really enjoyed reading this book. The chemistry between the main characters was awesome. The witty banter and one-liners made for great reading. The sub-characters were also enjoyable and fun to get to know in this book. Ms. Kilraine gives us complex and well-rounded characters that make them easy to love. The book had a good pace and was very quick and easy to read. Although this is book 2 in this series, it can be read as a stand-alone. But with such wonderful characters, I will definitely be buying books 1 & 3! Highly enjoyable. I recommend everyone pick this up and add Ms. Kilraine to your favorite author’s list!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Give and Take by Lee Kilraine is book two of the Thorne Brothers Series. This book can be read as a standalone, which I did, but I get the impression you get more background on some of the other characters I’m book one so I suggest reading book one first.

Rhia isn’t like the rest of her family and she’s well aware of that. All she wants to do is prove to them she can be successful even if she doesn’t follow their chosen career path. For that reason, she is determined to make her business thrive. Step one is free office space which is how she meets the Thorne brothers and most notably Wyatt. Wyatt is quiet and is quite particular about things around the office. When he meets Rhia, she is the exact opposite of him and it truly grates on his nerves. Soon however, he realizes he quite enjoys her outspoken, colorful personality. Will Wyatt be able to step outside his perfectly constructed box and let Rhia into his life or will he keep everything tidy and Rhia at arms length?

I truly enjoyed this book. I was pleasantly surprised with the fun banter and I even got a good laugh a couple of times. Rhia knows who she is and for the most part, she’s not afraid to embrace that. Her family isn’t always in her corner and that was so frustrating to witness but she pulls herself back up and takes care of business. Wyatt had a bit of growth throughout the book as well. At times his growth was subtle but it was still nice to witness him making some changes even if he didn’t realize it at the time. I love how close the Thorne brothers are in the book. The relationships were so fun to read. I’m definitely going to read book one and see what I missed!

Give and Take (The Thorne Brothers Book 2) By Lee Kilraine is the second Book in The Thorne Brothers series.This can be read as a standalone but I do recommend reading the first book as well. I loved this book and couldn’t put it down once I started reading. I love the characters Wyatt,and Rhia.Wyatt likes things to be in order and is very determined to stay focused on his job and doesn’t really have much time for a social life.Rhia feels like she doesn’t belong like she’s a outsider ,She is determined to make her buisness a success .These two have chemistry but are completely the opposite of each other. Can opposites attract?Can they make a relationship work?To find out the answers to these questions I highly recommend this book and I can’t wait for the next boom.

Give And Take (Thorne Brothers Series Book 2) by Lee Kilraine – Review by Karyn Taylor

Give and Take (The Thorne Brothers, #2)Give and Take by Lee Kilraine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Give and Take is the 2nd book in The Thorne Brothers Series by Lee Kilraine. There are 6 Thorne brothers and I’m sure that each will have their own book. Although the series revolves around the 6 brothers and their construction company Six Brothers Construction, each book can be read as a stand-alone. I hadn’t read the first book and did not feel that this hampered my enjoyment or understanding of this book.
The six brothers had an awful childhood and spent most of it split up and living with foster parent. They set up their company as a way of them all being together.
In Give and Take we have the story of youngest brother Wyatt. Wyatt feels that he owes his brothers so much as, being the youngest, he was shielded from much of the horrific life they lead. He is training to become an architect as this would save their company a lot of money and he feels that this is his way of paying his brothers back. When the brothers decide to help out a new company by giving them office space, we are introduced to Rhia Hollis. Rhia is everything that Wyatt is not. She’s loud, full of fun and a total scatter brain. It’s a match made in hell. She’s the family black sheep in a family full of scientists and she’s trying to prove to her family that she can be a successful business woman.
I loved reading Rhia and Wyatt’s story. Their interactions when they have to share an office are hysterical. They could not be any more different if they tried. I also loved the interactions of Wyatt’s brothers. The way that they do everything to get a rise out of him is so endearing.
I was gripped to this story right from the very beginning. I adore the characters in this book and really want to read the rest of this series to see what the author has in store for the rest of the brothers.

Give and Take (The Thorne Brothers, #2)Give and Take by Lee Kilraine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Give and Take is the second book in Lee Kilraine’s Thorne Brothers series and my first experience with both the series and Lee Kilraine’s writing. Despite being the second book in the series I didn’t find it difficult to follow the storyline at all having not read book one.
Give and Take was a really strong read for me, I felt that both the main characters were fantastic with the kind of substance that really makes you want what is best for them, you feel invested. Coming from a close knit family that has always been supportive Rhia’s family infuriated me and I really felt an emotional connection to her character, if that isn’t a sign of strong writing I don’t know what is. I loved the character development throughout the storyline and most of all the sincere relationship between Wyatt and Rhia. Both characters are very similar and at their core want what is best for each other, it was nice to read a story with chemistry, wit and emotion while being completely realistic.
I really enjoyed Give And Take and will be going back to read the first Thorne Brothers book in the near future.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Give and Take (The Thorne Brothers) by Lee Kilraine had me hook, line and sinker. The story is well paced, flowed easily and packed a punch. Emotions run high in this book and at times I wanted to cry and others I was laughing out loud. The characters mad me love them all and just cracked me up. This story shows that families come in all shapes and sizes and even broken ones can be more than “whole” ones. The hurt and suffering and vulnerabilities that each and every one of this family of Brothers endured, are both heart aching and heart wrenching but together they are whole, well as much as they can be, as long as they have each other. ​I loved the bonds between them and their different, yet winning personalities and their playful and heart warming crazy banter. When opposites attract, coming together makes sparks fly and hearts fill. Can’t wait to read the rest of this series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Give and Take is the perfect title for this book by Lee Kilraine. Every person who likes color in their life needs some beige to balance them out and the same can be said for a person who likes too much beige. We all know what happens when you put two people who are like night/day in a small space together; they banter like children and you could cut the sexual tension with a knife. And that was Wyatt Thorne and Rhia Hollis. I really like both of these characters, but the first two times they meet were awesome. I loved how Rhia would add touches to Wyatt’s office just for color. Wyatt’s brothers were always good for some extra comic relief too.
Even behind all the drama you still get the hint of family togetherness and the bond between these brothers. I will defiantly be going back and reading the first book to find out how they learned about the sister and really looking forward to continuing this series – I need more Thorne brothers!

Give and Take (The Thorne Brothers, #2)Give and Take by Lee Kilraine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Give and Take by Lee Kilraine is the second book in the The Thorne Brothers series and follows the relationship of the youngest Thorne brother Wyatt and the colourful Rhia.

Wyatt is a quiet, orderly man, so when his work space is invaded by a young women who has been given a chance to have an office rent free for a year within the offices of the brothers construction company, the only problem is the office is in use and she will have to share with the quiet, serious brother.

Rhia has been always been the black sheep of her family, she has tried all sorts of jobs but now has started her own business as a event planner. She applied for the grant from the Thorne brothers to be able to have office space rent free for a year which would be a great help to her as she is short on funds at the moment but did not expect to be sharing an office with the bland, serious brother Wyatt.

As the story goes on you get to see the dynamic between Rhia and Wyatt grows throughout the story and it becomes a great chemistry. I loved the character of Wyatt as a main role, he was not a alpha male but a sensitive soul with a big heart and a loyalty to who he loves and respects. I loved the slightly scatty character of Rhia, especially as she had a poor relationship with her family and that Wyatt saves her in the end. The story was great and this story can be read as a stand alone, but as this is the first story I have read by this author I would love to read the first book relating to Beck and Sam’s story. I would also love to read the other books in the other series Lee has written also.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Give and Take by Lee Kilraine is the second book in the Thorne Brothers series. I had not read the first book but was easily able to follow the story. This book focuses on Wyatt and Rhia. The two are polar opposites. Wyatt is quiet and very meticulous with everything in his life. Rhia is outspoken and a free spirit. The two personalities crash together but will they mesh? This is a fun read with no unexpected craziness. This was a welcome distraction from my daily life and gave me a little smile. I will be catching more from this writer in the future. Everyone can use a good, happy story from time to time.

Give and Take is book two in the Thorne Brothers series. While I have not read the first book, I had no problem following along with book two. It can be read as a stand alone. Although after reading this one I do want to read the rest of the series. This is the first I’ve read of Lee Kilraine and I was not disappointed. Great story!
