Try (Temptation #1)

Try – verb: to make an attempt or effort to do something or in this case…someone.

Sex. Logan Mitchell loves it, and ever since he realized his raw sexual appeal at a young age, he has had no problem using it to his advantage. Men and women alike fall into his bed—after all, Logan is not one to discriminate. He lives by one motto—if something interests you, why not just take a chance and try?

And he wants to try Tate Morrison.

Just coming out of a four-year marriage with an ex-wife from hell, a relationship is the last thing on Tate’s mind. He’s starting fresh and trying to get back on his feet with a new job at an upscale bar in downtown Chicago.

The only problem is, Tate has caught the unwavering and unwelcome attention of Mr. Logan Mitchell – a regular at the bar and a man who always gets what he wants.

Night after night Tate fends off the persistent advances of the undeniably charismatic man, but after an explosive moment in the bar, all bets are off as he finds his body stirring with a different desire than his mind.

As arrogance, stubbornness and sexual tension sizzles between the two, it threatens to change the very course of their lives.

Logan doesn’t do relationships. Tate doesn’t do men. But what would happen if they both just gave in and…tried?

Take (Temptation #2)

TAKE – verb: to reach for and hold in one’s hands or get into one’s possession, power or control.

Logan Mitchell is a man who’s always been more than happy to take what he wants. It’s a philosophy that’s proven lucrative in both his business and personal life, and never was it more apparent than the night he laid eyes on Tate Morrison. After pulling out all the stops and convincing the sexy bartender to give him a try—he’s hooked.
Now, Logan finds himself in a predicament that demands more from him than a smart-ass answer and his innate ability to walk away when things get too deep.
He has a choice to make, and it’ll force him to do something he’s never done before—take a chance.

Tate Morrison knows all about taking a chance. He took the biggest one of his life the night he showed up at Logan’s apartment to explore his unexpected reaction to the man.
Ever since then, he’s thought about little else.
At first he was convinced his attraction was based solely on his body’s curiosity. But the more time he spends with the silver-tongued lawyer, the more Tate realizes that their physical chemistry is only the beginning.
He’s starting to catch a glimpse of what life with Logan would be like, and it’s one full of excitement and satisfaction—a far cry from what he had in the past with his soon to be ex-wife.

Each man will face their fears as they begin to understand the true meaning of give and take. Their feelings for one another will be tested, as will their very beliefs. But now that they’ve found love where they least expected it, will they be brave enough to reach out and take it?

Trust (Temptation #3)

TRUST – verb: to believe in the reliability, truth, or strength of another.

Up until now, Logan Mitchell has never had much of a reason to trust anyone.
Having struggled with a self-identity crisis throughout college, he’s spent the years since then creating a sophisticated facade to present to the world.
It’s an armor he thought was impenetrable—until he met Tate Morrison.
The gorgeous, headstrong bartender he’d sat across from only months ago has taken a tight hold of his heart, and Logan is discovering that it’s time to let go.
It’s time to let someone inside.

After years of placing his dreams on hold for his family, Tate has finally chosen to do what makes him happy and follow his heart.
The one thing he never would’ve imagined was that it would lead him into the arms of a man—and not just any man—the striking, never-takes-no-for-an-answer Logan Mitchell.
Tate has fallen hard, and as his world is turned on its axis and they move forward together, he finds his life becoming more entwined with the confident, successful lawyer.

Even though neither man expected the other, it’s time to trust in their relationship—but not everything comes so easily…

review v2

Book #1: Try 5+++ stars

This is my first M/M book I’ve read. A lot (Yes A LOT) of people recommended me to start reading this gender with Ella Frank’s series, so I said to myself ok, let’s TRY it…. Well they were ABSOLUTELY right. Since the first chapter I got into the story, it’s all about feelings, it’s about two (sexy as hell) guys… Tate is a straight bar tender who will surrender to the these new feelings, all his entire life will change because he can’t deny the attraction he feels for Logan, the sexy lawyer that will pursuit Tate. He wants Tate to “TRY” just try…..

“It’s like you expect me to flip a switch and just accept that everything I ever believed about myself has changed, and that I should be okay with that.”

I love this book so much, both characters are sexy and hot, you can’t deny the chemistry that Logan and Tate shared, it was burning HOT!!!

The dialogues are witty, full of humor and Logan is just perfect, he can’t never have his mouth shut (well unless… you know when… LOL). I highly recommend this series for those who love M/M, and for those who haven’t read any, this is a perfect way to start with. A must read! Just give it a TRY!!!

“What’s wrong? Afraid you might like it? How do you know unless you TRY?”


Book #2: Take 5+++ stars

I have to start my review telling that I’m so in love of Ella’s writing, the way she tell us the story is remarkable and how she develop it is just amazing.

Butterflies… yes, butterflies on my stomach is what I feel while I’m reading this book, the whole series, I loved TRY and I loved TAKE as well, this second book is about knowing how Tate and Logan’s relationship develops. They are getting to know each other, their feelings, there is nervous, anxiety, insecurity, a lot of romance and of course all the hot, steamy and sexy scenes we got on TRY too.

You will fall for them immediately if you’re not already. This is a win win thing, two book boyfriends to fall for……

“What are you trying to do, kill me?

No. I’m making you mine.

Don’t you know? I’m already yours.”

I can’t wait for TRUST I know it will be perfect, perfect for this couple who deserve to be happy and to have their perfect HEA, more and more of sexy Tate and smart mouth Logan.

“Get in the car and unzip your jeans. I’m fucking hungry.”


Book #3: Trust 5+++ stars

I have huge expectation for this final statement and TRUST me when I say that it really fulfill all of them. I can’t believe I ended loving this kind of gender, don’t get me wrong, this is my first M/M series and I absolutely love it. I can say now that I can’t wait to read more and more.

About TRUST, since the beginning of the book you fell for Tate and Logan again, I’m a hopeless romantic and get to know how Tate and Logan find out that they’re so in love for each other is just amazing, the evolution of both characters is amazing, you find a more confident Tate, he has evolved and now he does the dirty talk too and the dialogues between this two guys makes you want to be just right there with them…. Tate is more protective and strong and he will fight for his relationship no matter what… fight for Logan.

Logan {sighs} I just love him… he struggles for this relationships, he can’t even think of losing Tate, he still being the same smart ass, funny, sexy and caring for the ones he loves.

Logan and Tate relationship now is strong, solid and deep.

“His motto of “try, take, and top” had changed…..

What he wanted was Tate’s trust- his absolute TRUST.”

I’m kinda sad because now it’s over but very pleased of reading this series. Tate and Logan are my favorite M/M couple, it will be hard to find guys like them, I will miss him, specially Logan’s smart mouth!! Thanks Ella for this amazing story and thanks for give these guys a beautiful ending.

500% Highly recommended!!!!
