TRUST – verb: to believe in the reliability, truth, or strength of another.

Up until now, Logan Mitchell has never had much of a reason to trust anyone.
Having struggled with a self-identity crisis throughout college, he’s spent the years since then creating a sophisticated facade to present to the world.
It’s an armor he thought was impenetrable—until he met Tate Morriso

The Temptation trilogy absolutely fucking ROCKED! All three books were incredible. Was there a plot? Fuck if I know! I just know that I consider it the pinnacle of dirty, delicious man-on-man action. The number one reason is because of the intense lust and chemistry and eventually love between MC Tate and MC Logan. This is definitely a one-handed read and I HIGHLY recommend it to all M/M romance enthusiasts looking for some good old fashion porn with emotion. As far as I'm concerned, that's the

This review feels awkward to write. Why? Well, because I went into this books with high expectations, but I didn't end up loving it as much as I wanted to. The first half of the book I loved. It felt great to be reunited with one of my most beloved couples. I loved their personalities, banter, and sexiness. After a bit though I kept waiting for something to happen- which it did---> I won't put it under a spoiler because it's a biggie and I don't want to tempt anyone to read it. Once that wrap

Oh man, Tate and Logan.

I love you.

I just wanna gnaw on you.




And ever...


And evermore...


For serious though, the places this book went were very unexpected - for me at least - and I just loved it.

There were feels and anguish and it was like crack to an addict.

Granted, there were some unnecessary plot threads and some friction points that were presented and left dangling, but honestly?

...I didn't know you were essential for me to feel alive.

Ella Frank's books are like a one-two punch. One to the ovaries and the other straight to the feels. She has this incredible ability to combine heart wrenching emotion with panty-melting eroticism. It makes each and every single one of her books unputdownable reads. When I first read Try I knew I had one of those books on my hands. I was head over heals for Tate and Logan.

I devoured this book! It was everything I wanted and more!! Yet again Ella Frank has proved what an amazing author she truly is! Whatever type of book she writes you just know it's going to be brilliant! I'm not big fan of M/M books but I loved Tate and Logan, they made my heart melt!! Their story is intense, sensual, hot, funny and sweet!


I will refrain from giving too much away and spoiling the fun. As I said before the story is so beautiful and it made me feel so

Maybe I shouldn't have read all three books back to back?

But this book just wasn't needed. I stand by my thoughts on the first book being the best!

Why was he even in this book?

“His motto of “try, take, and top” had changed.
Oh, he’d tried Tate all right, and they’d both done a helluva lot of taking, but for once in his life, Logan didn’t feel the desire to win. He didn’t need to come out on top.
What he wanted was Tate’s trust—his absolute trust.”

Temptation really has been an amazing series. I know I only gave TRUST 3.5 stars but in the end I only ended up liking it and not loving it. As a whole though, Logan Mitchell and Tate Morrison’s story was pretty freaking amazing.

When I decided to read Try (book #1) I was more than a little nervous. I was VERY nervous. I had never read an M/M book and I didn’t think it was going to be my cup of tea. Well, I am happy to report that after finishing this series I am now a fan and will

A series really is something special when you find yourself loving each book just as much if not more than the one before it. That happens to be true with this one. I have enjoyed each book in this series so far and I am looking forward to what is to come from these men now that I know there will be more books.

Tate and Logan are one of my favorite couples. They have an epic kind of love that slays through all the bullshit that life has thrown their way. They love hard and encourage each other w

The Temptation Series is wrapped up with Ella Frank’s final installment, Trust. We were left with a bit of a shocking end to Take and I know I was dying to see how everything was going to play out.

I am not going to tell you about the story. I think the blurb speaks for itself. What I am going to do is tell you all about my feels. And there were a lot of feels.

I think starting at the beginning might help me explain this best. It was June of 2013 and I was reading Edible. A character (that althou

Well, this is awkward. Ella Frank is one of my very fave authors and this series was my first M/M series ever. The first two books blew me away. I own signed copies of both. As much as it breaks my heart though, I still have to be honest. This book was not her best. Although there were some good parts, I spent the majority very BORED.

This series should have been a duo...there was not enough story to sustain a trilogy, in my opinion. Most of this read like a novella or ep

Trust is the third and final book in the Temptation series by Ella Frank. How much have Logan Mitchell and Tate Morrison evolved since Try.

I would never have believed that Logan the once cocky arrogant sleeps with anyone would turn into such a loving caring emotional man who wears his heart on his sleeve were Tate is concerned, there is nothing he won't do for Tate.

Tate has become this confident gay man who is happy and comfortable in his relationship with Logan and no longer scared of showing h

I hope you all remember what happened in Try & Take ?

Towards the end of TAKE we finally could've had our HEA - because Tate was finally willing to let the world know he had a boyfriend ...and Logan was willing to take him to the work-party as his date.
But unfortunately a new client turns out to be Logan's idiot-ex Chris :( And he's kind of trying to proposition Tate at the party. o.0 That's how TAKE ends.......

RATING: 4.5 Forever Logan and Tate Hearts!! <3 :D

Trust is the perfect conclusion to this sexy and highly entertaining series. Loved Tate and Logan in this one; their vulnerable sides exposed and of course their off the charts HOT sexual chemistry. My only very minor complaint, I would've loved an epilogue, but oh well, I can deal.

Going to miss my boys! <3 <3

Reread in June 2019 and LOVED it to pieces!!
The first time I've read this series I was new to the MM genre and as much as I adored it, I wasn't ready to write my thoughts.
After 3 years, rereading this story got me hooked again, and I just couldn't put it down. So much happens in this third book. We get more angst, we get some terrifying scenes, and unexpected guilt from a parent who before disowned Tate. I won't share more because it was a pleasure in discovering this story, again, on my own.

Here's what happens in this book: Everyone they come in to contact with wants them/lusts after them. They stare at each other while thinking how perfect they are for each other. They have sex, say lot's of "I love yous" and cry. They constantly look at each other in "dirty" & "filthy" ways. (and apparently I'm a big ole perv cuz I only found a few scenes dirty and none filthy and if you're going to use the word "depraved" I'm going to need A LOT more than a blow job in a parking garage).

Ella Frank did what she did best for her Temptation series. Hmm... I wonder is this one of the hottest m/m read around, although I only read a handful. So my opinion is totally biased. Logan and Tate popped my m/m cherry after all. They are forever gonna be my favorite boys.

My favorite part of the book is definitely the smut. It was hot as fuck and it make me want to stream for gay porn just to have some visual aids. If I'm caught by my hubby, I know he i

I must say here and now, Logan and Tate are my favourite MM couple. I can't get enough of these two. This was the conclusion of this unforgettable couple.

Loved the growth and depth of these two. Especially the vulnerability of Logan and Tate's acceptance of himself and his relationship. This was emotional but also off the charts scorching!! I didn't even bother with panties. I'd learned my lesson from the last two books!

Since second book was a successful (of sorts) re-read, I of course, decided to re-read this one as well. It turned out to not such a bad idea. Sure, it wasn't a great read, but it wasn't as bad as I remembered it. It's so strange how, in my re-read, I liked the second and third book in the series, yet disliked the first one. Quite much. I barely got through it. But this one was alright this time around. Overall, I didn't mind the cheesine

"See the corner of the mattress over there?"

Tate focused on the edge of the bed and wondered what he was getting at - then Logan told him.

"Feel free to bite it when I'm fucking you so hard your throat is hoarse from shouting."

Oh fuck. Trouble had most definitely found him, and its name was Logan Mitchell.
