Blog Tour and Giveaway for Try [Temptation #1] by Ella Frank

TITLE: Try by Ella Frank
RELEASED ON 11/12/13

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?



Try is the first MM book by Ella Frank and I sure as hell hope is not the last one. I have read all her books and I thought she couldn’t top Blind Obsession. Oh well, hello Tate & Logan! You guys sure gave Philippe a run for his money.

If you guys check the blurb you’ll know what this book is about, I won’t talk a lot about the story, this will be about my feelings when I was reading the book.

I need to say I was excited when I heard Ella was writing her first MM book. I know some of you guys are reluctant when MF authors decide to write MM but I guess we need to TRY their books before judging, right? So I added it to my TBR without even knowing what this book was about. When I read the blurb and realized this was about a “straight” guy I was happy dancing in my desk. Yes, I love GFY stories, I can’t freaking help it and let me tell you this, ELLA FREAKING DELIVERED!

This is a light and hot as hell read and even though I am not a huge fan of erotica lately, I loved this one. We have two completely different male characters. We have Tate who is a confused bartender who crosses paths with Logan, a lawyer who will make him question his own sexual tastes. 

But what happens when you think you know everything about yourself and suddenly you start questioning your feelings? Are you able to accept it or will you fight against yourself?

You need to read the book to know what happens but trust me when I say this is a book that will make you feel those butterflies in your tummy. I loved the banter between them, I loved how they were fighting each other with their words but they were eye fucking each other with their eyes. You could cut the sexual tension between them.

And yeah, this book only spans over two weeks of their relationship so you guys need to have this into account. I absolutely HATE reading books where characters love each other after one kiss or one quick fuck. That’s NOT real. So I am very grateful that Ella stuck to reality and showed us a real relationship during their first two weeks. I can’t wait to get into more emotional stuff in the next book.

That being said, I must also admit there were two emotional moments that were completely outstanding for me: their moment in the kitchen when they intertwined their fingers and that TERRIFY ME moment that is my absolutely FAVE part of the book.

And the most important thing, Ella has a huge number of ‘MF readers’ fans who are willing to give this genre a TRY. That is just AMAZING, I can’t wait for them to discover how completely AWESOME is this genre.

I can’t wait to TAKE that second installment, my body is more than ready for more Tate & Logan.
So, are you ready to TRY?
