TRY (THE TEMPTATION SERIES #1) BY ELLA FRANK
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?
Try by Ella Frank is the first book in the Temptation Series which follows Logan, a confident lawyer who will fuck anything that moves, and Tate a self proclaimed straight bartender in the middle of a nasty divorce from his soon to be ex wife of four years.
From the beginning, I just didn’t like Logan. His confidence usually came off as arrogance but I couldn't stop reading because from the moment he met Tate at After Hours—the bar Tate works at—Logan was hilarious. He had no filter and everything he said was sexually suggestive. He didn't know when to back off as Tate pointed out but Logan needed just one night with Tate and wasn't willing to walk away.
These two had explosive chemistry from the second Logan's ass found a bar stool in After Hours which lead to some hot on page sex.
Tate was a complicated well built character I really liked from the moment he opened his mouth to verbally spar with Logan. He wasn't a push over by any definition of the word but there was just something about Logan that made him feel and desire things he never had before.
When Tate decided to, "try," all bets were off for these two but its never that simple, is it?
Personal baggage weighed both these men down, making for some bumps along the way. Tate had to confront some internalized homophobia. Logan couldn't give a sincere apology to save his life.
By the end of Try, I had more questions than answers, which is to be expected considering Try is lead up to Take, the second book in the Temptation Series.
Logan and Tate might have been together by the last chapter of Try but only by the loosest definition of the word. Their relationship is on a fragile foundation and even the slightest shake will have them collapsing.
I absolutly plan to read Take to see if these two can go the distance!
