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?
Logan stroked his slippery palm up Tate’s engorged length, watching his face go from sexual torment to one of pure, unadulterated lust while his hips moved, driving his cock through Logan’s fist.
“Open your eyes,” Logan demanded as he continued to pump his hand up and down.
Tate’s brown eyes opened, catching on his, and Logan could tell that he’d finally let go of all thoughts and was just feeling in this moment.
“Fuck yes,” Tate rasped, right before he cupped Logan’s face and tackled him backward onto the bed.
HOLY. CHRIST. ON. A. CRACKER.
This book not only knocked my socks off. It knocked my freaking underwear off. Not once, not twice...nuuuumerous times.
Try is the first M/M romance I have ever read. I’d be lying if I said I wasn't nervous; not because I was worried it would make me uncomfortable. I’ve always been one of the “whatever tickles your pickle” kind of girl. Just be with whoever makes you happy. So, why was I nervous? Because I was worried I wouldn’t be able to relate to the story. I kept thinking, “It’s a man on man erotic novel. As a girl, how is this going to be erotic for me?”Well color me a naïve; I was one hundred percent wrong. This novel revved my engine and made my lady bits tingle every bit as much as the F/M erotic books I’ve read. EVERY. BIT. AS. MUCH.
Logan is, well, let’s call him an equal opportunity sex machine. Man or woman, he doesn’t care. As long as it feels good, why should it matter who is sharing his bed? As a drop dead sexy, very successful lawyer, he never has a problem getting anyone into bed. Until he met Tate, a straight bartender going through a nasty divorce. Logan starts making it more obvious to Tate that he’s not just being friendly…he’s coming onto him. As a guy who has never even entertained the idea of being with a man, Tate tries to push Logan away and make it very clear, he’s not interested. But much to his surprise, Tate is somewhat interested. And with Logan’s persistence and inability to take no for an answer, he finally convinces Tate to just... try.
I don’t know why I’m surprised I loved this novel so much. I was instantly intrigued by Logan for the short time he was in Edible, and let’s be honest, Ella Frank has never disappointed me. Her writing is out of this world. She weaves the sexy moments in with the heart touching moments flawlessly, and makes you want more of both. This particular story line between Logan and Tate is one of my absolute favorites. I fell head over heels in love with both guys, and my heart felt for Tate as he tried to work through these “taboo” feelings for Logan that he didn’t know how to deal with. But when he finally gives in?? HOLY WIPE ME DOWN WITH A FREAKING STACK OF BEACH TOWELS!!! The sex scenes are...mind blowing. (Pun maybe intended.)
As does every couple, they go through their fair share of issues. At around 70%, I wanted to strangle one of them and give the other one a huge bear hug. My heart broke for them in that moment, and I’ll be honest, that wasn’t the only time. Ella made me care so much for these two men and their well being...I just want them happy. Together and happy. And for now, it seems as though they are. I will just give y’all a tiny tidbit of information though – this is only the first book in the series of Logan and Tate, so don’t expect everything to be wrapped up in a nice, little dick-shaped box when you reach the end ;)
If you are hesitant about reading a M/M romance or you’re not sure which one to start with, this is it. Read this book. And because I can’t possibly pass up on being a little cliché, I’ll leave y’all with this: I gave this book a try , and I’d do it again...and again...and again without even blinking.
