Try by Ella Frank



Recommended for readers 18 years of age or older

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?



My Review:

It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve read this book, so my review might not be perfect and in depth.


The one thing that absolutely stands out about this book is Logan. Oh my goodness. Hello, Logan! He is the definition of sexy. And he had this bad boy attitude, yet with a sensitive side that he tried to hide at all possible times, that built him up that much more. I thought that his relationship with Tate could be a little awkward at times. That’s probably because I didn’t overly love Tate, though. Discounting that slight hiccup, Logan made this story.

On a negative note, it seemed pretty far fetched for Tate to all of a sudden realize that he was gay. No, that doesn’t sound right when I read it on the screen because that sort of stuff does happen. Let me rephrase: It wasn’t far fetched that Tate realized he was gay so late in life, it was how quickly he acted on it after being so against it for like a week. I would have liked to see more of a building chemistry romance between Tate and Logan. Their actions and routines started to get repetitive within the story. Some editing and character building would have fixed that right up.

Another thing is that I thought there could have been more of a plot. Don’t get me wrong, the sex was hot, but I really wanted to see more cute moments between Logan and Tate. Since Logan was such a strong character, I really wanted to see more of his vulnerability and more moments that made me want to grab my heart and swoon. There were moments like that! I just wanted a little bit more to the storyline.

Overall, I actually really enjoyed this book. I can’t wait until the second book comes out this summer. It’s definitely a hot and powerful read, and I dare you not to fall in love with these men!
