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 c

Take is book two in Ella Frank’s Temptation series. In this continuation of Logan and Tate’s journey, this author once again takes us into the minds and hearts of two very different, powerfully potent men. However, this time, we get to see them risk it all as they grab hold of the reigns and take what they want

I'm going to lower my rating a smidge after my re-read. While, I still loved this one hard I didn't love it as much as Try.

There's just something about the build-up to Logan and Tate becoming a couple. Logan's insistent pursuit of Tate. Tate's resistance to Logan.

It was delicious!!!



Was this book HAWT as hell??? Um....

Did I love it just as much, if not more than, Try?

Take picks up where Try left off....literally, like minutes later. I had

So now it was his turn. His turn to convince Logan that he, Tate Morrison, was worth it. When he wanted something, he was stubborn enough to wait it out and take it.

Well fuck me sideways and consider me officially hooked. Wow. Ella Frank managed to do what no other author has accomplished for me before; she managed to make me love Take even more than Try. And I fucking LOVED Try. While I love me some delicious M/M loving, I do want a great story to go along with it.

Take is the second installment in the Temptation Series by Ella Frank. In this follow up, the story pick ups right where the first book ends. The first book was about the beginning of a relationship- or I should say "the chase" or going after someone you're interested in. Here,we are in the second stage. Feelings and emotions are now involved. Logan and Tate must now deal with the opinions of others regarding their new romance. We are also given ans

It's been 2 days since I've finished this book. I've tried to start reading something else, but you know what happened?

While I really liked Try, I simply loved Take! While Try was mainly about lust, here, we have both lust and feelings. And what a great combination that is. The book is still hot, like melt my panties or rip my clothes off hot. Logan and Tate are one helluva sexy couple and they can play around the sheets all right.

But in addition to all the messing around, we have an actual relationship between those two. And let me tell you, they are so wonderful together. You can feel the connection, the devo

There's also a lot of good reviews out for this already so I'm just going to explain some of my thoughts with you. I don't know why its taken me so long to pick this one up probably because I was scared of it leaving me on a cliff-hanger but this one didn't it left me with a HFN feeling and a BIG smile on

Logan and Tate were finally together - but they still didn't have a name for whatever they were to each other... Both never had a boyfriend before - Logan, because he only had flings and Tate, well, because he has always only been attracted to women before....

But now they're starting something serious - and serious means meeting each others families and friends...

“Yes, I know,” Tate answered. “I found out the hard way.”
Logan laughed at that. “There is so much that could be said right now, but yes, Tate, you were my hardest challenge yet.”

That pretty much sums it up for me! I loved this book so hard that when I was done, I could have easily went to the beginning and started all over again.

A phenomenal continuation of Tate and Logan's story. It was hot. It was a little angsty. It was sweet. It was everything you want in a follow up

When I finished:

Ella's second installment in this series far surpassed any expectations I had. I loved every damn word of it, and I could barely put it down. I actually had to stop reading just when I reached the scene. You know...the one depicted on the freakin' cover. I thought I would go nuts when I had to step away from the book.
It was just sooooooo good.

Devoured this! Can't get enough of this couple, OMG!!! This was still beyond hot with the sex between these guys. And there was A LOT of it.

I also loved the emotional side of this read with both Logan and Tate digging deep, facing their fears, being vulnerable and real with each other. Hot damn!!

Can't wait for the conclusion of this hot series.

And thank you Maida for bingeing on this together!! xo

I’m not going to lie, one of the top three reasons I decided to read Take was because of all the HOT SEX I knew I’d get from reading about Logan and Tate. And ladies there was nothing lacking in that area at all!! Seriously, I was in constant arousal mode and I think I am getting to old for this stuff! LOL

The other two reasons were I wanted to know how they would weather the shit storm that I knew was coming and whether Tate was just testing the waters or was his life about to change forever.

Tate & Logan's journey continues in Take, the second installment of the Temptations Series by Ella Frank. As Tate deals with not only discovering that he's attracted to Logan he has to deal with exposing this new self to his family. Already caught in a moment of intimacy, Tate knows he can't put this off any longer.

But Tate isn't the only one that is feeling more exposed by this new relationship. For Logan Mitchell, he's always hidden his heart behind a wall of casual sex with any man or w

Book #2

Ella Frank's first M/M romance in her Temptation Series started with #1 -Try (4.3). A very "hyped" book a year ago which was a funny joy to read now in May.

RATING: 5++ Sexy AF Hearts!! <3 :D

Take is hands down my favourite book in this series. I absolutely adore Logan and Tate - their banter, their sexual chemistry and their devotion for each other is beyond beautiful and exciting. While I loved the first book, I really loved this one, and am so proud of my boys (yes I'm claiming them as mine!) for finally accepting and claiming their happiness and facing their fears. A perfect combination of sweet, sexy and emotional!

Reread September 2017

I'm still in love with these guys so much. I love seeing them come together as a couple and work on their relationship and they're so supportive of each other. And, I still despise Tate's family. This quote stood out to me this time:
"The complete and utter lack of tolerance from his parents had shown him one very important thing—love was not something that was simply there because you were born of the same blood, and it should never come with a fucking disclaimer."

-He'd never been as strongly attracted to anyone as he was to the man currently eyeing him.

-Logan wanted him, and if this was his fall into corruption, then he planned on making one hell of an impact.

-Logan would be his, and he wasn't going anywhere until he had him.

This one picked up right where the last one ended and there is a lot going on. Logan is facing his fears of being in a relationship and Tate is finding his way through the new desires he is having for a man. Well, one pacific man. Both are determined to make this work and they go through many highs and lows in this one before things finally become settled between them.

Tate's family plays a big role in this one. The confrontation was brutal and sad. It

Well, hotness aside...

I think where Try gave us the butterflies in the stomach, and the LUST, Take gave us the lump in the throat, serves up the ANGST, the acceptance and the overcome of issues that comes with change.

Was a very entertaining read, love Logan … and is dirty mouth, also love Tate boldness!!

So, this book is not for me--ever. Only reason I actually bothered to finish reading it, and never have I thanked my speedy ability in that area so much, was because it is a challenge book.

This book had too many impediments that even sweet and sultry sex couldn't overcome. Endless internal waffling that just wasn't cool enough to be emo. POV switching, not by paragraph, but sentence by sentence at times. And while contemporary romance is rarely a big win, scenes that revolve around people
