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 Morrison.
The gorgeous, headstrong bartender he’d sat across from only months ago has taken a tight hold of his heart, and Logan is discovering that it’s time to let go.
It’s time to let someone inside.
After years of placing his dreams on hold for his family, Tate has finally chosen to do what makes him happy and follow his heart.
The one thing he never would’ve imagined was that it would lead him into the arms of a man—and not just any man—the striking, never-takes-no-for-an-answer Logan Mitchell.
Tate has fallen hard, and as his world is turned on its axis and they move forward together, he finds his life becoming more entwined with the confident, successful lawyer.
Even though neither man expected the other, it’s time to trust in their relationship—but not everything comes so easily…
“What’s wrong with my hair? Are you saying I need to cut it?”
“No, I’m fucking not,” Logan said as he fingered the curls by Tate’s ear. “And you know it.”
“What would you do if I did shave my head?”
“Kill you? And likely get away with it since I have connections to a very reputable law firm.”
Tate chuckled and shoved Logan until he was on his back beside him. “Be serious.”
Logan turned his head on the pillow and ran his eyes over Tate’s full head of hair. Then he returned his gaze to the eyes watching him. “I would quite possibly cry. For days.”
“Over my hair? It does grow back, you know.”
“Yeah, but not for months,” he grumbled. “Can you please stop talking so calmly about this? You’re making me nervous.”
Tate shifted until his long, lean body was stretched out above him, and Logan widened his legs to allow him to settle in between.
“Don’t worry,” Tate assured him as he lowered his head to kiss the corner of his mouth. He then moved those teasing lips to Logan’s ear and whispered, “I like your hands in it too much to cut it off.”
Logan threaded his fingers through the thick waves and asked, “Like this?”
With a groan, Tate rocked his hips against him, and Logan twisted his fingers tighter.
“Exactly like that.”
“Good,” he said as he wound his legs around Tate’s. “Because this way, I can have a tight hold on you when you’re trying to distract me. I’m onto you, Mr. Morrison. Don’t try to use your body against me.”
He almost lost his willpower when Tate, the cocky fucker, placed his hands on either side of his head and rubbed their erections together.
“You don’t want me to use my body on you?”
“Fuck you,” Logan said, knowing full well that, if he didn’t change the subject or get Tate the hell off him, he was going to roll him over and cease talking altogether.
Usually he’d love nothing more, but right now, he wanted to know why Tate had reacted so strongly to his question from last night—well, early morning .
“We need to talk.”
…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. Hell, who am I kidding? I was basically all
Their story has been an exercise in control for me. While each book in this trilogy had a satisfactory ending it also always left you begging for more and the wait for the next book was absolute torture. So to say I was anticipating the conclusion to their story would be a HUGE understatement. I was downright dying for it.
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.
If you’re going into this expecting that same ovary devastating chemistry, let me put you at ease because boy will you get that. A whole lot of it. Logan will melt every panty within a 20 mile radius. Guaranteed.
The man who was plowing into him over and over had lost any decorum his suit and tie afforded and had morphed into a man who was taking exactly what he wanted, HOW he wanted- and Tate fucking loved it.
But this was not just a whole lot of hot sex. Well, don’t get me wrong, because there was still plenty of that. But beyond that it was an incredibly emotional story and you get much more depth to both these characters in the process. Now I would advise you to read as little reviews of this book as possible before reading it because you really want to be heading into it as blind as you can. And for that reason, my review will also be quite vague in terms of details.
I devoured, absolutely devoured the first half of this book. It brought out such a wide array of feelings in me, from lust to heart wrenching emotion. I couldn’t put it down.
Frustrating?” he mocked. “No, you know what’s frustrating? When you see someone you really want to fuck and can’t because they keep saying no. I’ve been frustrated. This….this is agony. Torment beyond anything I’ve ever felt before.
Get ready for a roller coaster of emotion with this one. And that’s all you’ll be getting from me.
So why am I not rating this as highly as the first two books? Well, a couple of reasons. The main one, is even though I really enjoyed it, I just didn’t love it as much as the first two books. Somewhere around the second half I found myself growing a little bored. I still read it in one sitting because I just had to know how it all came together, but it just didn’t grab me as much as the first half. See I’m one of those ridiculous readers that has terrible book ADD when it comes to reading about the same couple in several books. So perhaps that may have been the biggest reason for my disconnect? There were a lot of things addressed that I had hoped would be and I was extremely satisfied with that. But there was also a character that made an appearance in this book that quite frankly I wasn’t quite sure of the purpose of. This character made an appearance, stirred some shit up (kinda), and then left. I’m not even sure their appearance was necessary at all really. But that’s just me.
Aside from those reasons, I truly did enjoy this conclusion to this incredible romance. Tate and Logan are definitely going to remain in my top favorite list of MM couples I’ve read for a long while. I fell in love with these boys in the very first book, and I just fell for them all over again if not harder in this book. So while it may not have been a 5 star read for me, it was still a fantastically solid 4 stars and one I’d definitely recommend to any lovers of MM romance. You just haven’t lived until you’ve met Tate and Logan. Trust me. Your ovaries will thank you.
