5 STARS!!!!!!!!

It has been quite the ride with these two men. They were my introduction into the MM world and I fell head over heels in lurv with both of the men and the genre. Since then I have been drowning myself in this genre and enjoying every minute of it. So when I read there were going to be more books with my first MM couple I kind of flipped my lid. I was extremely excited. Who doesn't want more books with one of their favorite couples? And so far what I've read in the last two books I

I was a nervous wreck going into this book. I will admit, I read some spoilers and saw all the status updates so I knew the dreaded "53%" was going to be tough. And while it was, and I cried some tears here...I mean it was sad and my heart was breaking, anybody who has read these books knows Logan and Tate are solid.

✮✮✮ 5 STARS ✮✮✮

I think I can't hide how much I love Ella Frank's boys Tate and Logan. They are so very special, each in his own way. I was really excited to find out how Logan would explore these new thoughts about his relationship with Tate.

The first sentences of the story say it all and it's pretty much the central theme of the whole book:

IT WAS STRANGE how a life could change in the blink of an eye. How someone’s perception of things could alter in a nanos
As I get ready to write this review, I feel like I might want to bring out my battle gear and get into my box of shame...

I just don't think these books are necessary and they are killing me because they are taking a power couple, Logan & Tate, and re-hashing old wounds, dragging their relationship through the mud and creating angst for us all, when we had previously tucked these beloved men away in a "Safe & Secure" HEA box. Now, we are reading books that really are not adding to the rom

Forget five stars. This book (even though I put out a Contract on Ms Frank and had to call the Paramedics when I stopped breathing at 52%) is a five million, trillion, billion, zillion, sextillion, Loganillion, Tateillion stars.

Do I need to add anymore to get you to understand how much I love this whole Series? I don’t think so - especially with nearly 6,000 reviews on GR alone for this book. Yes. Nearly 6,000! How many authors harvest that amount of reviews? Not many.

WOW this was an emotional read for me with all the emotions that both Logan and Tate feel throughout this instalment, I must admit I was scared there for a while. I wanted to give them both a hug and help them get sorted.

Lo sé, lo sé, que nadie me diga nada xD. Pero, son Tate y Logan, y salen y yo ya disfruto aunque debemos admitir que Shakespeare no es xD, tampoco lo trata.
Es un libro con lo mismo que nos han ofrecido los protagonistas en libros anteriores, no hay más y no hay menos, no es aburrido, pero tampoco tiene nada nuevo. Para gente amante de la pareja, como es mi caso (lo sé, lo sé xD) creo que se disfruta.
5 stars

I can’t begin to express my love for this series and these two men. Sure, this series isn’t for everybody, and that’s more than okay, but I’m so damn happy that I discovered Ella Frank all those years ago, and subsequently, because of her, the wonderful world of M/M romance. Seriously, just thinking about an alternate universe version of me out there, walking around completely unaware of this book genre, makes me so god damn sad! Thank fuck for my reality, right!?

But I digress (again)…

"To Tate,
From the very beginning I had a plan for my life.
But it wasn’t until we met that I knew it was you.

Another book and another emersion into the love between Logan and Tate. Who would have thought that Ella could continue to grow and expand on this couple so beautifully and so successfully. I am in awe.

Oh how I love my boys Logan and Tate! They are polar opposites, but fit together perfectly. Their dynamics always keep me coming back for more, even though I felt their love story became rather stagnant in the previous book, Tease. Now five books into the series, and things are back on track. I’m really happy with the way their relationship is progressing.

Tate’s interactions with his family have been all kinds of messed up throughout the course of the series. It is necessary and satisfying to co

Oh, how I love Logan and Tate. Their relationship is never boring and this installment had everything the previous book Tease lacked. Five books in and I found new sides to Logan and Tate. They keep evolving as people and in their relationship.
Their love and chemistry is so palpable and is just one of the things I love about this series. Also their trust and how comfortable and supportive they are of one another is heartwarming and so beautiful.

5 Brutal but Glorious Stars!!

My gawd. This sucker punched me. Hard.

I'm not saying that's necessarily a bad thing. Just be forewarned that this is kinda a 180 from Tease. Tease was just that - a peek into these two that was fun, sexy dirty, and just fabulous.

Here, though, it’s all emotions. Some were good, others were not. Be reassured that despite the tears, I was one happy reader at the end.

Overall, I just want to say that Tate and Logan have always held a special place in my heart, mostly be

Sigh... I just love these men. And although this book is called Tate, I'm such a sucker for Logan. As arrogant and inappropriate he still is, he has become so much more....

The last book was sweet all over but this installment was so not. Ms Frank sure threw out a punch. Well actually Tate did.

There, in a bathroom that was built for sin, the passion eased and the fever simmered until the deeper, scarier feelings began to consume the two of them.

Tate, bad-boy bartender and Logan, the sophisticated, sexy attorney, are one of the“celebrity” book couples of MM erotic romance, in my opinion. The GFY/OFY/BiFY trope was taken to new heights in the first trilogy and it's fun returning after 4 years to have Ella Frank tease us about an ultimate HEA for these two. This novel includes a lot of changes in Tate and Logan’s lives with new people and new locations, plus issues appearing from the past, that Tate has to face. It can be difficult for an ...more

One of the things for me which makes a good romance is how much of the time reading it I have a big smile on my face.

Well, with the exception of one moment where the smile dropped and I actually gasped out loud, this book just made me smile.

I wasn't sure if Ella would be able to match the intensity of the first three books in this series but with this new trilogy the lives of Logan and Tate are simply gaining more flesh.

There's no great storyline being revealed, no huge adventure or gripping ten

Ella Frank did it again and brought back one of the hottest couples I’ve read with off the charts chemistry, dirty talk and great banter.

The intensity and pleasure I had reading the first 2 books of this series was there is spade again. And while I liked the previous book Tease as it was nice to reacquaint with Tate and Logan 4 years after their HEA, I found it a bit bland. No worry here and no absurd drama either.

Tate is as arrogant as ever, although he’s brought on

But THIS book. So good. Really. It’s really about Tate (the title 😂) but Logan is just the center of it. And they are cute as hell (I was crying in the end 😍). Logan is adorable as ever.

We are now on the fifth book of Logan Mitchell (37, turns 38) and bartender Tate Morrison (32-33-34?). One of them is ready to take it to the next step, shockingly the other one is taken by surprise. Not a good one. This twist was alright (it didn't shock me, in fact I expected that it would happen), I liked to feel something other than lovey-dovey that the couple is feeling, I just didn't like how short it lasted. It should've lasted more than a couple of

Falling into a relationship he'd always wanted but never dreamed he would have.
But most of all, he was falling in love with Logan all over again, just as he'd done every day since he'd known him.



This book was perfection, ok maybe that's just me, some readers might like this series some might not but when it comes to Logan and Tate, i will always be in their favor.

It is not about the story or the plot anymore for me. IT IS ABOUT LOGAN AND TATE.

It is about the chance to read about them again. It is about getting a small glimpse in their life through these few pages that the author writes.
I wish I could get an everyday snippet on what they are doing, but well.. Beggars can't be choosers.

Thanks to Christelle I actually 'tried'. I wasn't going to after the disappointment of book 4.
But I am glad I did. I 'took' the book and 'trusted'. (Sorry, I just had to go for this... XD)

This was Logan and Tate at their best. The naughty banter and the essence of their relationship (lots of heat and intensity, nicely mixed with playfulness and genuine feeling), just as we remember it from the first tree books, is back. Thank you, Ella Frank! Big sigh of relief!

Tate is at a very exciting stage

This book was everything!! I loved it!

The 53% mark broke my heart, but I am just so happy they sorted everything out! I love that they communicate with each other and trust so deeply in their love.

Also I need a book about Priest and Robbie. Those two are so fun to watch.
4.5 stars

I think by now you all have seen quite a few reviews of this talking about the 53% mark, and it is fairly brutal, I have to say. We've been with these two for four and a half books, we've seem them fall absolutely head of over heels in love, we've seen them endure a lot of shit, and we've seen how ridiculously happy they are together. So what Tate says at that point is completely a surprise, and it feels like it makes no sense, to me at least, until we get Tate's explanation of why he s

Logan and Tate are the real deal in MM world and after knowing them so long I wish them all the best,but is it realy necessary to drag this series for so long???
Somehow, it destroys all the charm that was until now.

This is one of the most vague reviews you will ever read in your life. I believe that Tate was the best book in this series. I absolutely loved it despite the fact that it kind of broke my heart.

From page one to the last, there was so much growth in this story. And I couldn't be happier for Tate and Logan. Their relationship is so strong and when you read the story you'll know why.

I cannot wait to see what happens in the last book. I need it asap. Because this s

What can I say but after four books about Logan and Tate, I still can’t get enough of them and when I found out that Ella Frank was gonna continue their story, the inner fan girl in me was super ecstatic. Tate is the on-going love story and journey of my favorite couple. And this time, Logan and Tate have a few hurdles to overcome. And so in this book, Frank continues to take her readers on an epic journey of this couples relationship. We se
