As I am a big fan of a good series, I picked up this book with high hopes. This story delivers exactly as advertised. The chemistry between Beckett and Sam dripped off of the page while they were expected to work together which resulted in enough tension and drama to create an interesting story. The highlight for me was the brothers story and I can feel that as each story is told, more light will be shed on their backstory. As one brother is currently MIA, the potential of this series is endless. I hope this remains a focal point as each of the brothers (I am assuming) get their own story. I love when there is a good backstory and I feel that Kilraine is off to a good start. Fans of this genre should pick this book up and enjoy the ride!

    Another great book by Lee Kilraine! This one was a bit steamier than her typical but just as satisfying! I loved the backstory these two had and how they fought their desire and attraction regardless of how hot it burned. The story, along with the characters, was well developed and enjoyable. And Kilraine has a way of weaving family into her stories, making you want more of them. Can't wait for the next book in this series!

Sam and Beck, Beck and Sam. Add in their respective businesses, Becks brothers who are partners with him in their construction company, Sam with her own design business, toss in a hockey team owners esoteric, feng shued, chi loving wife who hires them both to work on their new home because she things their yin and yang will compliment each other, with a deadline of 5 months and their reputations riding on it, not to mention finances and there you have book one of the Thorne Brothers and I just couldn't get enough. The book gives us nice peeks at all the brothers, Ash is a pro hockey player, the only one who isn't fully hands on in the business. Beck is the oldest and has been basically parenting his brothers all their lives, with a really rough upbringing and being split up at a young age Beck carries the weight of the world on his shoulders and still feels the need to take care of his brothers. Which also means not telling them everything. Beck and Sam have a bit of history. One night because that's all Beck can manage and left Sam a little what's the word? You fill in the blank on that one. She needs this job, the daughter of a famous builder and designer her father is garbage I'd scrape off the bottom of my shoe. The crap he throws at her, she at one point worked for him and left to start her own company with her best friend; the only way to survive and come out and away from that mostly intact. When she gets the offer for this job she knows she's up against Beck, what she wasn't planning on was having to work together. Neither was he. Neither of them were anticipating the attraction they still felt toward each other so deciding it would be less distracting if they went ahead and burned off a little steam it would make the job easier they jumped right into it. It definitely made the job easier. It also made them enjoy being around each other a lot more and spending time together, Beck gets an idea of what Sam's life was like with her father and how terrible he was. Beck isn't as open about his past as she is, but it's something he'd rather not go back to. He's also keeping secrets from his brothers. Beck falls pretty hard for Sam and she for him. I loved them as a couple. When Sam doesn't show for Thanksgiving due to an emergent call from her baby sister, she rushes off for a couple days and drops off the radar from the guys. Beck takes that way to personally and instead of talking about it... blows her off. Think his line was "it was just sex right?" That pulls the shutters down for Sam. Once again feeling that she's less that because she doesn't have a penis. That's a classic line from the book and I love that Lee wrote that. It comes up more than once. I loved the brothers too. Each have their own personality quirks and with the exception of Wyatt are total flirts. When they make the deadline for the open house and hockey gala everyone is over the top happy and this is the break they've both been waiting and hoping for. The event is not without a couple pretty lousy twists. So these two, and everyone else in between; can they find their way back to each other or will Beck resort to being Beck? Then there's Sam. The brothers and everyone has an opinion. This was a great read. It's the one that pulls you in at the first page and doesn't let you go until the end. It's a stellar read. I look forward the next brother's book! *arc from NetGalley and Publisher for an honest review*

Beckett (Beck) is the eldest of the Thorne brothers. He's been the "leader" of the group since before he turned double digits and he's carried the "burden" ever since.

I mean, 6 brothers and a twist....sounds pretty perfect to me. Beckett (Beck) is the eldest of the Thorne brothers. He's been the "leader" of the group since before he turned double digits and he's carried the "burden" ever since. Being in control is something he needs in order to get through. Something he's learned from a very young age. So when the opportunity arises to land a huge construction/design contract, imagine he shock when he's pitted against the one woman he lost control with two years ago. A woman he's thought of since, but never acted on his thoughts...until now. Samantha Devine is the new designer in town. Well, it's been two years, but that's still new. She's worked extra hard, not only building a name for herself, but proving to her father that she's worth more than the secretary job he's belittled her with. Another way to prove her father wrong would be to land the huge contract up for grabs. But when she walks in to the meeting, the only thing up for grabs are her memories of that one unforgettable night with Beck. And now she has to work with him? Uh oh... I think it's safe to say that this one was a pretty straight forward story line of man/woman lust. But the background stories of each character and family history is what makes this so good. Not only do we get to meet the rest of the Thorne brothers, we meet friends along the way. So, was the chemistry between Beck and Sam hot? Duh. This story was more than that. It was about letting go of control and allowing yourself to trust and feel. It was about family, both the good and the bad. And yes, it's about love. Did I mention how excited I am to get my hands on these brothers? I mean, to read more about these brothers....

    I really enjoyed Beckett Thorne and Sam(Samantha) Devine's love story. Beckett runs a construction company with his many Thorne brothers. Samantha runs a design business with her best friend Margo. I enjoyed the inner dialogue that each character had throughout the story line which at times gave me a good laugh. A little steam, romance, family discord, combined with some rough aspects of growing up made this book a 5 star intriguing read.

With the example his parents set he doesn't believe in relationship or love. That is until Samantha Devine crashes into his life and heart like a freight train. I loved everything about this book especially that ending! More please. Now!! I highly recommend this one.

    Strong story of love and family Give it Up is the first book and an impressive start for Lee Kilraine's Thorne Brothers series. The story grabbed my attention from the very start and kept it through to the Epilogue. Sam and Beck are both well developed likable characters as were all of the Thorne brothers and I look forward to their stories. I received an advance reader copy from Netgalley.

The Roughnecks are a baseball team in Dallas. If you are going to rename the Carolina Hurricanes, pick something that is totally original or put a smug note in the front saying that any resemblance to the Hurricanes is incidental. On the other hand, she really captured the spirit of the good old boy community in Raleigh. She had this quote about choosing a designer I loved. It went something like, "If you had to choose between someone with a great portfolio and someone your sister's friend's aunt who won first prize at the state fair for her peach cobbler you are going to pick the cobbler." That is dead on! I would happily read the rest of the series!

Together, the Thorne brothers own a turnkey construction business, and each book focuses on one of the six siblings. This story is about Beckett Thorne, the eldest brother and financial manager of the company. Beck also has amazing design skills. Due to shocking circumstances, the company's business loan has become due, so winning the project to design a sport team owner's mansion is a definite must. Samantha Devine and her best friend Margo are business partners. Their interior design firm is on the cusp of being well-known in the Raleigh area, after only two years of being in business. Sam left her father's very successful and nationally known construction company after years of her talent being overlooked because of her sex. Now she has the chance to truly shine, however, working with Beck will be a challenge, especially since they have a history together. This is quite an earnest read. Beck's back story tugged at my emotions, so I was especially happy that he and his brothers turned out to be successful and kind men. I loved Sam's independence, but disliked how and why she turned out to be so strong. Beck and Sam are two people that truly belong together, but needed some time to realize how much they compliment each other. Their sexy times are hot, both in and out of the bedroom. Overall, this is a well-written romance about two characters that I could not get enough of. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

There is one brother still unaccounted for that they are looking for but otherwise they work together well, are close and take care of one another. They are also charming, attractive and eagerly sought out by those looking for a bit of time between the sheets. In book one we meet the brothers and hear the story of Beckett, the oldest brother. He and a woman he had a one night stand with, Samantha “Sam” Devine, are hired to work together on a large lucrative job redesigning a home for a wealthy couple. They are forced into close proximity, have to make compromises and begin to care for one another…though it takes a bit of doing for them to reach the HEA conclusion hoped for. There are no real big surprises in this story and the romance is fairly straight forward. I am interested in finding out more about the other brothers and also about the twist their private investigator brings to them near the end. Did I enjoy the book? Yes Will I read more in the series? More than likely Am I willing to read more books by this author? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Publishing ~ Lyrical Press ~ Caress for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

When the pair are forced to work together, their professional rivalry and personal chemistry come head to head with explosive results. This was a fine book; however, I wasn't bowled over by this particular storyline. Their client was kooky to the point of caricature (same with her father's cruelty) and I'm not sure I ever felt love develop between the Sam and Beckett. Hot sex? Absolutely. Emotional connection? A bit less so. However, I'm more interested in the rest of the series, which will clearly set up love stories for the other brothers in the future. I liked that Ash is gay, as it's not a theme of "typical" mainstream romance novels, and I'm excited for the possibilities that the series at large might hold.

When the eccentric owner of the project they are vying for makes them work together; things get interesting. They share a past that keeps them sweating in the heat.

Their chemistry was hot. all the characters added to the story. the brothers and best friend will make interesting stories to come.

Although as they both were forced to work on a designing project together the attraction between them seems to take on a whole new level. They finally started to work like a well oiled engine. They both have got trust issues from their past and have to learn to trust again. They haven't grown up in a normal families. Neither of them was material for committed relationship but there was so much more between them than just a physical attraction. I must admit when I read the blurb and was instantly interested. With reading the book I was smitten. I loved every single word and have to say I want more of these series. And believe me there is more. Wyatt's story (one of Beckett brothers) is coming. Yay

    This book is the perfect beginning to a series. Romantic, sexy, sometimes sweet, and with characters you just have to root for. The backstory of the brothers and what looks to be a continuing story through the books is captivating as well!

    DNF at 50% - I really tried to make it through this book. It wasn't a bad story, there is as good plot, I just couldn't connect with either of the main characters.

    I had a hard time with this book. I couldn't connect with the main characters and I felt the ending could have been a little better. I received this book free from a Goodreads.com giveaway.
