Review: Try ( Temptation #1 ) by Ella Frank

Temptation #1
by Ella Frank
Release Date: Nov 12, 2013

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 a chance and try?

And he wants to try Tate Morrison.

Just coming out of a four-year marriage with an ex-wife from hell, a relationship is the last thing on Tate’s mind. He’s starting fresh and trying to get back on his feet with a new job at an upscale bar in downtown Chicago.

The only problem is, Tate has caught the unwavering and unwelcome attention of Mr. Logan Mitchell – a regular at the bar and a man who always gets what he wants.

Night after night Tate fends off the persistent advances of the undeniably charismatic man, but after an explosive moment in the bar, all bets are off as he finds his body stirring with a different desire than his mind.

As arrogance, stubbornness and sexual tension sizzles between the two, it threatens to change the very course of their lives.

Logan doesn’t do relationships. Tate doesn’t do men. But what would happen if they both just gave in and…tried?




I finally understand what is all the fuss about m/m.

I first met Logan Mitchell when I read Edible. Since I love that series so much, I had Tryin my TBR even before it was published. But I was shocked to find out Ella Frank make it into a M/M instead. So now finally I decided to 'TRY' to pop my m/m cherry with one of my favorite author. Also thanks to Eda's gushing in her reviews. 

I think the title is ingenious. For those who have not try any m/m, I think this is one of the best book to introduce and ease you into it. We have Logan who play for both teams and Tate who is a straight guy.....erm, I mean used to be straight. One look at Tate, the sexy bartender, Logan knew he must have him. And what Logan wants, he will get it no matter how hard he had to work for it. Tate is the guy in a moral dilemma. I mean, the guy just got a divorced and never once questioned his own sexuality. But damn, Logan manage to make him questioned everything. It feels so wrong and right at the same time.

Seriously, I had never felt more aroused when I read a smutty book. Sometimes, the sex can be such a chore and mundane in some books. But this one really hit all the right button for me and from two men no less. I think I need to douse some water on my kindle to prevent the fire. Who needs a pussy now when we got an extra dick! It not just smutt on paper either, when the emotion and social pressure come into place to burst their happy bubble, they make me root for them. I'm so glad I finally read this. Although all these 'his', 'him' and 'he' references can get confusing at times, I think Ella Frank tried to make it as clear as possible.

Rating 5/5
