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: – verb: to make an attempt or effort to do something or in this case…someone. HOLLA!!
Ain’t that the truth. When we heard about this book, we knew we had to Try. We had never read a true M/M book before, and figured what the heck. Well, holy fricking moly did we get a fucking M/M story that blew us away. We couldn’t believe that this book could be so freaking HOT!
Okay so yeah the sex and foreplay were amazeballs. But it wasn’t just all the juicy stuff that gets you. (I will get to that stuff a bit) It was the story; the plot; the writing; the connection between Logan and Tate. Everything. We really had no idea where Ella was going to take us. But Logan, Jeez…that man will knock you the f*ck over!! Don’t play with him… or Play with him, if he fancy’s you. Not sure what he fancy’s; could be what’s in between a woman’s legs or a man’s!!
Just when he figured life was going to be easy and hand him a woman to bend over his desk, it threw him a nice fucking curve. Batter up! I want to play with some balls.
And if he wants it, he gets it. Dude he’s fucking HOT!! Just take a look below…
Can you imagine this man walking up to you in a bar, or a freaking airplane?? AIRPLANE SEX HOLLA!! Ya gotta read the book to know about that!!
As freakin gorgeous as he is, I will admit, I was NOT a fan in the beginning. Maybe even the middle. He’s so freakin cocky, and arrogant. He has an answer and comeback for everything. I guess those can be pros, certainly makes you drawn to him; because he’s very intimidating.
Logan loves the women but I am thinking he loves the men more. It is definitely the case when he lays eyes on Tate, resident hottie bartender. Logan is drawn to him like a moth to a flame. He stalks him like a fucking Lion would stalk his prey; watches him. He’s intrigued and more than that, really fucking turned on. Logan is so hot for him and hard for him. He wants him in his bed.
Check this out. Tate, is very straight. Straight as an arrow. He is currently single but getting divorced to a woman he no longer has a connection with. (His family is definitely not happy about this breakup)
How do you convince a straight man to fuck another man??? I am thinking its harder than Logan’s cock. HOLLA!!! It can happen, and it does happen. And how does Logan pull this off you ask?
Because (and this is why I wasn’t a Logan fan), he is so goddamn pushy.
“What? Its inappropriate to tell you I want to fuck you? Would it have been better if I were drunk?”
Tate completely lost the ability to form words at that blunt declaration. As he looked around quickly, he heard Logan laugh.
“Jesus, would you keep your voice down” I don’t give a shit what you want to do. I have a brain and a mouth, and no has worked so far on people like you.”
Logan placed his palm on the counter and stroked the wood with his fingers. “People like me?”
“Yes, as in pushy, arrogant, and full of themselves.”
See what I mean? Not sure if I wanna punch him or kiss him. Leaning toward kissing him because as we get further into the story, he becomes seriously appealing to our straight friend. OMG…Logan doesn’t give up. He wants him, he’s gonna have him. He’s HOT, and so fucking alpha, and the things that come of his mouth; he has no filter. I swear he is very entertaining.
But Tate Morrison, he’s such a different man. Oh God I love him. He puts up a good fight for a while I’ll give him that. But even being straight, sometimes you can’t fight the pull between two people that are clearly meant to be together. Whether it is lust or love. If its there, then its there. And I think Tate knows at some point, he’s a goner. He has to try.
You can see why Logan is so hard for him. Yeah HI!! Nice to meet you oh so fucking hot with the fuck me hair bartender. So, imagine walking into a bar and seeing him behind the bar pouring drinks? Woman are swooning…and Men clearly…
He’s so innocent. And what really pissed me off is that I am sure that Tate would have never ever put himself in the situation where he would allow a man to come on to him. Logan is that pushy and that persuasive. But we can’t deny the level of hotness. Even Tate acknowledges that he’s a good looking man. I can’t sit here and bash Logan, because at some point you fall in love with him. You do!!! Tate is one lucky bastard!! The sex between them is insane, its hot, its rough, its fucking kinky, OMG I can’t believe I am actually typing this. I was so turned on by the intimacy between these two men. It was beautiful love making and a twist of hot ball slapping bedroom antics. Ella Frank gets 5 stars from me that’s for sure. And I can’t wait for more of Logan and Tate.
You know I can go on and on about this. Jesey and I recently had a conversation about Logan and Tate.
Trish: Hey Jesey
Jesey: Hi Trish!
Trish: So we gonna talk about Logan and Tate or what? So glad we read this together
Jesey: You know we are….I’ve been wanting to talk about this forever!!
It was nice to have a buddy to try something new with wink wink
Trish: Ya think??? I’ll say I wasn’t sure about a M/M book…But wow!!!! I was fucking BLOWN away!!!
Jesey: When I heard it was M/M I was SCARED!!! Never in a million years did I think I would like something like this!!
Trish: I mean Logan….Let’s start with that cocky arrogant ARSE!!!
Jesey: What a fucking PRICK – that was my first impression…
although I would not have minded joining the mile high club with him
Trish: Mile High!! LOL Yeppers!!! Alpha prick!!! But he’s so HOT!!! I mean, if I saw that fucker walking into a bar in that suit, I would want to fucking throw him against a wall
Jesey: You would have had to fight your way through me….and I don’t play fair LOL
Trish: Fine you can have Logan. I will glady take Tate!!!
Jesey: That can be arranged…Tate was just AMAZING! I loved him from the very start
Trish: But seriously Jesey, Logan pushed his way on him…don’t you agree??? I feel like Tate would have never done this…..He’s pushy and he pissed me off.
Jesey: It was almost like watching a bad movie where the guy won’t take no for an answer and is completely relentless. I wanted to strangle him and tell him to back the eff off from Tate…I wanted to protect Tate from the manipulations
Trish: OMG I know. I felt the same way. But seriously, Logan fucking does it! He shows Tate that a cock is just as good as a pussy!! OMG shut me up right now!!!!! AWWWW!!! Sensor this!
Jesey: LMAO NO sensoring – this is what we feel….the ladies need to know that this was HAWT!!! I mean, at times I almost forgot it was 2 guys in bed…..Ella Frank’s descriptions and development of their relationship had me so enamored that in my head it could have been a man and a woman at some points….I wasn’t focusing on the M/M
Trish: Agreed Jesey! But, when they were having sex, or anytime they were sneaking around the bar, didn’t you feel like you were invading their privacy?
Jesey: Totally!! I felt like I was there hiding in the shadows…I felt like a perv for watching them and stealing peeks at their special moments!
Trish: LOL!! Me too!!!! The sex was soo hot!! I can’t believe how fucking turned on I was…OMG!!! Fucking Logan and his filthy mouth…And Tate!!
Jesey: Oh Tate…
Trish: He learned really quick. Watching porn. I was surprised to see how much Tate was interested in learning. I was kinda happy he was getting into it though. Hehehe!!
Jesey: That he did….he learned to take control and face his feelings head on
“I want you as hot hard and desperate as you’ve ever been before, and once you’re there, then I’ll take you okay??”
Jesey: YES….wow – that’s taking me back…gimme a minute…I loved it when Tate was finally strong enough to tell Logan what he wanted and the things he wanted to try.
Tate shook his head, brushing their noses together. “Shut up for a change would you? And just kiss me.”
Trish: Omg jesey loved that part. You fucking tell him Tate. Shut…him…up. Hahahaha
Jesey: OK Trish – so if you could wrap this book up in one sentence to tell the fans how great it is…what would you say?
Trish: Try is hot, naughty, sexy and down right wicked which is why you need to read this with a change of panties in your reach.
Jesey: My parents always told me that I had to try something to know if I would like it, I really don’t think THIS is what they had in mind but I am not ashamed to say that Try is worth the read! So glad we could chat! Night doll ;)
Trish: Night!! HOLLA!!
