Review—Try by Ella Frank
“’I don’t understand you. You pick a woman one week and a guy the next? So…” Tate trailed off, wondering what exactly he was asking. When Tate felt Logan’s hand finally move away from his own, he quickly released the glass as if it were on fire. He watched Logan intently as he lifted the drink to his lips, seemingly contemplating the question. After taking a sip of the liquor, Logan lowered the glass slowly. “So…I like to try a little bit of everything and everyone.” The words sank Tate’s head, settling in, and then they started to make a whole lot more sense—until Logan, as usual, threw another can of gasoline on the fire. “I’d like to try you.’”
Logan Mitchell is a man whore. He will sleep with anything and everything as long as it has two legs and a mouth. What he doesn’t plan on is finding the object of his affection, or should I say, obsession, to be a man. A very sexy man. Tate Morrison.
Being the new bartender at the local pub is nothing new for Tate. He’s used to flirting his way with anyone for bigger tips, and it usually works. Even though his tastes are focused on the opposite gender, Tate can’t help but notice the extremely attractive man sitting at the end of the bar shamelessly checking him out. If he wasn’t so uncomfortable by the attention, he may even admit that he is checking Mr. Gin & Tonic out too.
“’I want to see you tonight.” Tate was positive on that answer. “No.” “You can’t stop me from having a drink after work.” Are you an alcoholic?” Tate just wanted to annoy him now. “No, but I would become one if need be.” “Why are you pushing so hard? Is it because you’ve finally met someone who’s told you no?” Tate found himself picturing the way Logan’s mouth might move as he thought over—Shit. “Maybe,” Logan surmised. “But I think it’s more because you just slammed me up against a wall and kissed my f**king brains out. And whether or not you will admit it, you loved it.”
So, now the game is on. Logan wants Tate and Tate can’t understand what it’s going to take to get Logan to see that he isn’t interested…or is he? Going back on everything he ever knew or thought he knew, Tate fights the urge to succumb to Logan’s advances. But, Logan is persistent; and Tate finds it difficult to deny that he is more turned on by Logan then he ever thought possible.
“’What scares him the most is that this is just something temporary for Logan, when Tate’s entire life will be turned upside down.’”
“’You’ll get exactly what you want from me, they you’ll be done, and I’ll be stuck on my own, trying to decide what on earth I just let happen.’”
“’I see reckless. I see untrustworthy. I see someone that I’m terrified to take a risk on because I don’t know if he’ll be there to grab my hand if I just off that cliff.’”
HOLY HELL…this book is probably one of the hottest books I’ve ever read, and I don’t know if I should feel dirty about that. Oddly, I don’t. Being that this is the first book in the M/M genre that I have read, I didn’t really know what to expect or what I would think about it. The feelings that came about, definitely not expected. Ella Frank weaves a beautiful story and her characters…amazing. The sizzle/steam factor…off the freaking charts. Reading about a relationship between two me is completely foreign to me, but I just think I found a new genre to enjoy!
