To those who don't like pics and gifs: Just look away. Problem fixed. I enjoyed this book and I'm entitled to review it any way I please. You know I see fangirl previews all the time that don't interest me in the least. So what? I can ignore them and the issue is solved. I don't get it why people have a cow because of those previews or pics and gifs in general. Plus, I'm all for live and let live. Now we can all take a deep breath an ...more
The hype! No really, I love it.
I'm thrilled that an m/m book is attracting so much attention and enticing a whole lot of new curious hetero readers to explore the genre. I absolutely love that, and for that reason I really, really wanted this book to be a shiny sparkling example of what new readers can expect from this genre. Ella Frank is not an author I have read before but she comes with a reputation for writing good hetero erotica and so I thought if Joe ...more
Try is the first MM book by Ella Frank and I sure as hell hope is not the last one. I have read all her books and I thought she couldn’t top Blind Obsession. Oh well, hello Tate & Logan! You guys sure gave Philippe a run for his money.
If you guys check the blurb you’ll know what this book is about, I won’t talk a lot about the story, this will be about my feelings when I was reading the book.
I need to say I was excited when I heard Ella was writing her first MM book. I know s ...more
Just as good as the first.
Never got bored.
Logan and Tate are still one of my favorite couples ever!
This book is hella hot
Re-read in anticipation of Take on the 8th!
Tate and Logan were H.O.T.
So ready for more....
This book made me
Logan is what I like to call an equal opportunity lover. Man, woman, both....

Try is Ella Frank’s first go at an m/m novel, and I feel that she knocked it out of the park. I really loved the characters, the humor, the steam, just everything about this one!
After reading Edible, I knew I needed more of Cole’s half brother and partner at his law firm, Logan. When Logan Mitchell first sees new bartender Tate Morrison, it is lust at first sight. Logan doesn’t know if Tate is gay or straight, and Logan could care less. When he wants someone, he wants them. H ...more
When I saw Ella Frank was coming out with a new book on the month of my birthday...
Then I found out it is a M/M Erotica book...
Then I really thought about it...
AND now that I've finished it:
In this story we are reacquainted with Logan, Cole's brother. He's sexy, confident, and will f*ck anything with a hole that sparks an interest. He's not afraid to go after he wants and when he wants something he attacks, and won't stop until he gets it. One night after work, he pops ...more
I had no idea what to expect with this book. My M/F reader friends pretty much all loved it and my M/M reader friends pretty much all hated it. I am a hard-core M/M lover with hundreds of M/M books under my belt. I honestly was prepared to hate this fully and completely.
Surprisingly, I didn't. But you might.
Does this book work as a convincing romance? No. The main characters literally spend no time getting to know one another. None. Logan is a pushy jerk and Tate is practically fo ...more
I did TRY.
And I failed.
To this book, I say:
This smacked of PORN WITHOUT PLOT as played by CHICKS WITH DICKS.
There was TOO MUCH PUSSY. There is a reason I read M/M, Ms. Frank. Cut that shit out.
And TOO MUCH REPETITIVE SEX.
And TOO MANY POV SHIFTS. Every couple paragraphs, it flipped, and since the MCs were interchangeable, I couldn't even bring myself to care who did
And the MCs were TOO PERFECT and TOO GOOD LOOKING and talked about h ...more

Oh dear. At least,
This book was too excessively hot. And I mean it: TOO HOT. Not in a good way. The repetitive sex was omnipresent, past the sexual tension in the first chapters, and it annoyed the hell out of me.
Not at first though. Oh, not at all. When Logan met Tate, I was oh so hooked and clutching my tablet hard as if I thought that would make me even more connected to the whole story and everything inside it.
I LOVED the beginning: overconfident, cocky and full of libido Logan m ...more

"You know what you want to do. There's no one here, and no one is going to come in. Just do it,” he whispered, "Try."
Ella Frank's books need to come with a damn warning.

★★★★! Try, book 1 of 3. Attorney Logan Mitchell’s very sexy & persistent seduction of straight bartender Tate!
Thanks to all the lovely ladies for buddy-reading! It was truly EPIC!
“I want you. Tell me how I can have you.”
Books in The Temptation Series should be read in order:
Book 1: Try
Book 2: Take
Book 3: Untitled
Try (book 1) is the story of successful attorney and man-whore extraordinaire Logan Mitchell in his pursuit of Tate Morrison, a straight bartender fresh out of a divorce.
OMG WOW THIS BOOK IS AMAZING!!
This book totally hooked me from the first page until the end!!!
I love Ella's writing and with this challenge writing a M/M she proves how great author she is!
This is my first M/M from a woman author and I didn't know what to expect...Ella didn't disappoint me!!Try is amazing!!!
"There's no one here and no one is going to come in. Just do it,"
Logan is a confident, sexy and arrogant guy who likes sex and he doesn't care if it's with women or m ...more
** 5++ “cinnamon gum” STARS **
“Congratulations,” Logan heard whispered as Tate’s hand snaked down between them, and his fingers wrapped around him.
That was HEAVEN!
I loved EVERYTHING about this book. I wouldn't change a single sentence, a single word, a single comma! I'm a newbie in the M/M Romance world, but Tate and Logan just made it into my all-time favorite book couples, so there's THAT... This book will be one of those that I reread a 1000 times like a lunati ...more
DNF at 50%, so no rating! All sex, no substance...it did not work for me at all!!
I did try again to skim to the end, but nothing seemed to change, one sex scene after another. No character or story development, nothing pulled me in. I hated Logan, his mind games, manipulation and pushiness. It made no sense to me. Tate...he was just there, I was as confused about him as he was about his sexuality, he was Logan's toy, there was no depth to his character.
I really enjoyed Ella Frank's Exquisite se ...more
5++ **my kindle just caught fire** STARS
“There's no one here and no one is going to come in. Just do it,” he whispered, eyes locked on to conflicted brown orbs, “Try.”
I...this book...this series...Logan...Tate...speechless.
We throw things like binge reading around quite liberally. When I say I couldn't put these books down I actually mean it. Three days with no more than three hours of sleep per night. I got absolutely nothing done in the meantime ...more
*Book 1 of 4*
Logan: Delish. Bi-sexual
Tate: Double Delish. Straight. Seperated but in the process of divorcing the wife.
Plot: Who needs a plot when you've got 2 alpha males...I kid. I kid (maybe).
This was a deliberate obliteration of boundaries, with Tate being the object of Logan's attention, leaving Tate strangely attracted but bewildered. I'm not GAY (he says). Well, that argument got old rather quickly (and who could blame him) as Logan's overwhelming sex-appeal brought Tate's walls tumbling.
Re-reading Sept. 2016: 4 stars? Um, I don't think so. Must read again to be sure.
Ok, so these boys drove me crazy! Drama, drama, drama! But it did make for some pretty intense sex, so bonus points. I will wait to review this book as part of the series.

Let me first start of by saying that this was my first venture into a full m/m romance. I fell in love with Ella Frank with her first release and knew that if there was an author out there that would be gentle with this m/m-virgin, it was her. I had no idea what to expect or what kind of experience this book would leave me with. Now that I've had a moment to reflect…
We met Logan Mitchell during ...more
Yes, this book needs to come with a health warning. Spontaneous combustion of girlie bits! Consider yourself warned.
When I read about the upcoming MM book by the awesome Ella Frank, I was ecstatic. As a seasoned Ella fan, I know the woman can write some seriously awesome love stories, holy hotness sex scenes.... Add the MM genre to her resume? Fantastic! She did not disappoint. I feel like MM has to be written in a certain way for it to work for me...it has to capture the strength, power and ...more
Alright Mrs. Frank, I want a list of "research" videos ASAP! <--- I'm not kidding. People, there's not much I can say that hasn't already been said about TRY. This review is going to be short and to the

The book page looks like a flashing advertising pillar, or - as my friend stated it so nicely - someone ran amok with gifs of nekkid men.
Is that supposed to make me want to buy the book? And who is Ella Frank?
I`m not one of Pavlov`d dogs...
Apparently I am - so many pics and gifs and squees - my siren call for an honest review - books pushed like this are NEVER good....(and I was told the review above isn`t a rev ...more
This is a reread for me, also it was my first book read by Ella Frank and my second male/male read, and wow it was an amazing ride.
I think in all of us there is, THE WHAT if scenario and these books clearly indicate just that theory!
Logan Mitchell is an alpha bisexual male, he is cocky, and an arrogant bastard - he loves the human body, male or female he doesn’t care, but he doesn’t do relationships. Tate doesn’t do men, or do he ...more

“Except for the fact that I’m straight,” Tate finally announced.
Logan toyed with his glass for a moment before he conceded. “Yes, well, I don’t let little things like that stand in my way.”

Tate raised a hand, and before he shut the visor, he promised, “I’ll look even hotter in fifteen minutes when I’m naked. So, quit bitching, and get on the bike, Logan.”
