Take by Ella Frank Blog Tour

TAKE – verb: to reach for and hold in one’s hands or get into one’s possession, power or control.

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 convincing the sexy bartender to give him a try—he’s hooked.

Now, Logan finds himself in a predicament that demands more from him than a smart-ass answer and his innate ability to walk away when things get too deep.

He has a choice to make, and it’ll force him to do something he’s never done before—take a chance.

Tate Morrison knows all about taking a chance. He took the biggest one of his life the night he showed up at Logan’s apartment to explore his unexpected reaction to the man.<

Ever since then, he’s thought about little else.

At first he was convinced his attraction was based solely on his body’s curiosity. But the more time he spends with the silver-tongued lawyer, the more Tate realizes that their physical chemistry is only the beginning.

He’s starting to catch a glimpse of what life with Logan would be like, and it’s one full of excitement and satisfaction—a far cry from what he had in the past with his soon to be ex-wife.

Each man will face their fears as they begin to understand the true meaning of give and take. Their feelings for one another will be tested, as will their very beliefs. But now that they’ve found love where they least expected it, will they be brave enough to reach out and take it?

“That’s your truck?”


“It’s so…”

“So what?” Logan challenged as he pulled his keys from his pocket.


“Excuse me. I’ll have you know I was driving this baby all through college and she still runs like a dream.”

Tate watched as Logan walked over to run his hand over the scratched-up tailgate, and he was amazed that he even made that look sexy. Like he was stroking a lover.

“And it’s a she, huh?”

Now around at the passenger’s side, Logan opened the door and looked at him over the bed of the truck. “Yeah. Jealous?”

Laughing, Tate walked over to where Logan stood with a hand on the door and kissed him slowly on the mouth.

“I’m jealous of anything you stroke like that.”

“Get in the truck, Tate.”

“Or else?”

Logan stepped forward, crowding him back against the inside frame of the vehicle. “You’re not ready for the or else…”

This is the second in the series, and you should read Try first, as it is a fabulous book, and makes this an even richer read.

Try was off the charts hot, as we saw Logan break down Tate's resistance. Take is off the planet hot as we see them both break down each other's walls, and build new support mechanisms together. I love that characters from Ms. Frank's Exquisite series also feature, as it makes for an even richer experience - games night in particular comes to mind!

I cannot wait for book three, as this couple moves forward so much in this book, but there is still much to resolve.

Take is the second installment of Logan and Tate, the follow-up to Try. I love these characters. I can't seem to get enough of Logan and Tate.

Take starts where Try ended. Tate has admitted his interest in Logan, Logan has been more than clear about what he wants from Tate. Take takes you on the emotional journey between Logan and Tate. Is Logan ready to be with only one person? Are they ready to label what they are? Can Tate tell his parents about Logan? What will be their reaction?

I loved this story, love the sarcastic playfulness between the two. The HOT sex scenes are worth the price of admission! If you are a fan in the m/m genre this definitely is a MUST READ!

I pray there is another installment coming!! I need more!

Logan and Tate are back and hot as ever! Take definitely describes this book! I loved the first installment of the Temptation series, and I can honestly say that Ella Frank did not disappoint me in the second one. Take was full of the honest chemistry and delicious sexy scenes I loved between Logan and Tate, but this book takes it to the next level. Logan and Tate know they are attracted to one another, but can they make it out of the bedroom where reality sets in? This book throws real struggles in their path and shows how they deal with it. I personally loved it. To me it was a well-rounded M/M story with more than just sex. I will definitely be waiting for the next book. I would recommend this book to anyone opened minded about sexuality and looking for a sexy romance story.

Take picks up right where Try left off. If you loved Try, you will love Take even more. I can’t even put into words how fabulous this book is. Logan and Tate are both so hot and lovable. Once Tate decided to give Logan at try he can’t get enough of him. Their relationship is passionate and the banter between the two of them makes you laugh out loud. I can see this same exact thing happening in real life and I am sure it has a million times, it makes the book more real because it does deal with real topics and real situations. I love this series, I love the relationship between Logan and Tate and I can’t wait until the next book. No one will ever look at bruschetta the same way, or a shower the same again, both smoking hot scenes in the book. You WILL need a shower after this one!

Characters: The characters were well written, loveable and believable.
Sex: Yes and so flipping hot!!!
Religious: It is talked about and brought up
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: M/M Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

Also Available in the Temptation Series

TRY – verb: to make an attempt or effort to do something or in this case…someone.

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?

This is the first in a series, and is so hot that even my Kindle blushed!

For me (and probably for Logan and Tate) this book is a sharp reminder that it is the person you fall for, not the gender. Undoubtedly the fact that these are clearly two of the hottest men on the planet, even if one of them is unaware of their appeal, makes this book off the scale hot. Ms. Frank is very clever at introducing another problem to upset the dynamic, yet resolving it before one's finger nails are bitten to the quick. For that I am most grateful!

This is a brilliant story about attraction and about knocking down preconceptions. Read it!

WOW can that woman write some m/m! A must read!

When I read this book I was new to the m/m world. This was one heck of a way to jump into this genre. It was so well written, HOT, SEXY but unlike some that I have read there was a fantastic story line. There was plot with sex thrown in.

The sexual tension and build up between Logan and Tate is off the charts. Logan the super sexual, sleeps with anyone, male or female, Alpha male and Tate, the straight but slightly curious bartender.

I loved this story! Can't wait for the story to continue! A MUST READ!!

Jacki – ☆☆☆☆
Hot! I definitely enjoyed this book. Tate and Logan's story is a hot mixture of chemistry, sex, power struggles, and emotions. It was a wonderful blend of M/M fun and romance. I can't wait for book two! I would certainly recommend this to M/M lovers and those looking to try it.
