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

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

You know what I love about this book?

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

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

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

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

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 what to whom.

And the MCs were TOO PERFECT and TOO GOOD LOOKING and talked about h

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.

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.

*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.

So when you hear that a traditional male/female romance writer is diving in the male/male genre you are curious. When you hear that it’s an author that has a dedicated following you are a bit excited that they will be introducing their fans to the wonderful genre that you are saturated in and loving. When you get the book, you are confused from page one when the MC is balls deep into a wet pussy. Oh yeah.

Let me first start of by saying that this was my first venture into a full m/m romance.

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…

One thing I really hate about Goodreads is pre-release fangirl-squeeing!
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.

She wrote the scenes so well, that most of the time I forgot it was male/male and supposedly somewhat forbidden!
