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?
Holy hell. This is my first real foray into M/M fiction and I am now a convert.
Once I saw that Ella Frank was the author, I immediately one clicked. Ella wrote one of my favorite erotica books- Blind Obsession– so I knew I was in for one hell of a adventure…
and when I say adventure, I mean melt-your-panties-take-cold-showers. This book is arousing. sensual. carnal.
Told in duel POV, Try centers around arrogant, charismatic, drop-dead-sexy lawyer Logan Mitchell
Try a sample, take the goods, and then come out on top. Never let things get messy.
and bartender Tate Morrison.
Logan and Tate couldn’t be more different. Logan has no problem saying whatever pops in his head (or his pants) while Tate keeps things close to his chest. Logan does whatever (and whomever) he wants, while Tate is still reeling from his imploded marriage.
But things start changing for both of them once Logan decides to actively pursue Tate…a straight man.
I don’t care if I have to be here every fucking night. I’m going to have him.
Between the heated glances, open innuendos, and casual banter, Logan starts to break down Tate’s resistance…
Because if you try, you better be ready to…take.
and Tate starts to get under Logan’s skin.
So…what’s your truth, Logan?’Logan stared at him so intently that Tate wondered what was going on inside his head before he replied,’I think you are,’ leaving Tate speechless.
What transpires between these two is not only a sexual awakening of sorts, but self discovery as well.
Try is one of the only M/M books I have ever read and I’m far from disappointed. One of the HOTTEST, most arousing scenes I have ever read, plus tons of heart.
What I love most about this book, and what I’m looking forward to in this series, is that despite Tate’s confusion and resistance towards Logan, it doesn’t come from a place of hate. There is no homophobia going on. Instead Tate and Logan’s behaviors stem from a place of fear, not hate. There is a moment between them around the 80ish% mark that is so raw and heartbreaking that I had to put my kindle down because of the tears flowing. I am a fan of these two and will be rooting for them.
If you’re looking to spice up your reading life, try something new, and go on a sensual, raw, and erotic story with plenty of feels, then Try is the perfect book.
