15 Days until GIVE AND TAKE!

I'm so excited for you to meet Wyatt and Rhia!

This author has an amazing way of spinning a yarn that keeps you totally hooked and turning the pages. This is the first book of hers that I have read. If this is any indication of what is hidden between the covers then call me hooked. I am so in. Her humor during some of the tense and delicate moments is so real of a lot of people who get nervous so it made it feel real.

She makes you see that families are real and go through horrible times. They come out on the other side too. Yet, there are

Book 2 and I am so in over my head with these brothers! This is Wyatt's story and what a story it is!
Rhia is the youngest in an overachieving, driven, mensa gene pool family. Rhia inherited none of those family traits. Rhia is a live out loud, day dreaming young woman who just started her own business and needs a leg up. The leg up would be from Six Brothers who are offering free office space for a year to someone who needs that hand. Rhia is determined to get her application in, despite her suf

Give and Take by Lee Kilraine is book Two in The Thorne Brothers series. This is the Wyatt Thorne and Rhia Hollis. I have read the previous book, but I feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Wyatt is a quiet, no frills hardworking man who along with his siblings had a tough childhood. When Wyatt mother left it hurt him so much that he was unable to speak until he was older around 6. So this has lead to him being reserved. Wyatt and his brother's started a construction com

I loved this novel and the Thorne Brothers. Wyatt was quiet and a bit fastidious – Rhia was a free spirit and a little quirky. I loved that neither one went to a stereotype or overboard on their personalities. They were both real and relatable – then you add in the brothers, and you have a place you

I picked up this book because it sounded fun, and it's nominated for a RITA. Now, Give and Take is diverting, but I can't really call it the best of romance. The author's writing style is breezy and does pull the reader in quite well. I could almost get sucked in without noticing how bonkers some of the plotting was. Almost.

So here's the premise: Rhia Hollis is the flighty and supposedly irresponsible member of her rather accomplished and academic family. She is in the process of starting an eve

Give and Take is the second book in the Thorne Brothers Series by Lee Kilraine. I have loved Ms. Kilraine’s Cates Brothers series, so when I saw this pop up in my feed I knew I had to read it too. Even though this is the second book in the series, it can be read as a standalone without missing part of the storyline. Although it has definitely quirked my curiosity about the other characters, so I will absolutely be going back to get books #1 and #3 too, so I can catch up with this series.

GIVE AND TAKE is Book 2 in the Thorne Brothers Series and I think it would be helpful to read book 1 just to understand the amazing dynamic that takes place in this family. If you don't have time - that's ok because you will still enjoy this one.

The author does such a fantastic job of giving each character individual traits while keeping the main thread of relationship going along. This series is building off each siblings experience growing up and how they now contribute to the family and world

Within this one story you have humor, witty banter, wry dialog with a truly smart edge to it, I was thoroughly engrossed from page one. The author demonstrated just how well she excels at her craft with her ability to pull the reader into the lives of her characters. Bringing the story to life through the eyes of her characters transported me into story...the emotions were palpable, every movement portrayed so realistically. I have become a true fan of Ms Kilraine’s writing.

Lee Kilraine just keeps getting better and better. She knows exactly how to write families that work together and are close and fun. But she can also pull the emotion from you. This story was another great example of an interesting couple who shouldn't have worked but absolutely did. Opposites in every way, they came together and combated their differences while eliciting feeling and making you cheer them on. Can't wait to see more from this series. ...more

Loved it! These Thorne Brothers are a fight knot group and as the youngest of the brothers Wyatt has a lot to live up to. He likes his world quiet and orderly. That gets blown up when his brother agrees to let party planner Rhia Hollis share his office space. She's loud, chatty, and total chaos. Everything that normally drives Wyatt nuts. So why is he so attracted to her?? Don't miss this book and entire series. I highly recommend. ...more

This was a great story and I plan on going back to read the first story in The Thorne Brothers series before moving on to the next chapter as this was great. Rhia was a brilliant character, she was the perfect compliment to Wyatt and his crazy hotness/urrggness.

Give & Take is is book two in The Thorne Brothers series by Lee Kilraine. My first read by this author. It's just the beginning of something beautiful. I was impressed beyond my wildest dreams. Elation at finding yet another epically talented author was an emotion that I became very familiar with. I don't know where they get all this talent. My talent can fit into my pinky nail. I am forever thankful for the time, effort and heart that goes into these stories. I just can't get enough of them.

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!

Great fun book about opposites attract.
Rhia Hollis is fun loving, eccentric, colorful, friendly, kinder hearted. She loves to rescue animals but in the eyes of her family, she wasn't enough.. All of her family were smart, geniuses without empathetic nor sympathetic gene on them. They constantly ridicules her for being flighty and not settling down and they keep setting her with all these geeky man.

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.

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.

“Give and Take” brings an even more interesting brother. Wyatt has had a rough childhood and has lived with the trauma most of his life. He likes order, control, he has OCD. But here comes Rhia Hollis with her “Seize the Day” start-up business and that means chaos and bye-bye silence. Wyatt’s life is turned upside down and there is no chance to make it right.
