TAKE – verb: to reach for and hold in one’s hands or get into one’s possession, power or control. 

Logan Mitchell is a man who’s always been more than happy to take what he wants. It’s a philosophy that’s proven lucrative in both his business and personal life, and never was it more apparent than the night he laid eyes on Tate Morrison. After pulling out all the stops and convincing the sexy bartender to give him a try—he’s hooked. 
Now, Logan finds himself in a predicament that demands more from him than a smart-ass answer and his innate ability to walk away when things get too deep. 
He has a choice to make, and it’ll force him to do something he’s never done before—take a chance.

Tate Morrison knows all about taking a chance. He took the biggest one of his life the night he showed up at Logan’s apartment to explore his unexpected reaction to the man. 
Ever since then, he’s thought about little else.
At first he was convinced his attraction was based solely on his body’s curiosity. But the more time he spends with the silver-tongued lawyer, the more Tate realizes that their physical chemistry is only the beginning. 
He’s starting to catch a glimpse of what life with Logan would be like, and it’s one full of excitement and satisfaction—a far cry from what he had in the past with his soon to be ex-wife.

Each man will face their fears as they begin to understand the true meaning of give and take. Their feelings for one another will be tested, as will their very beliefs. But now that they’ve found love where they least expected it, will they be brave enough to reach out and take it?

I've probably said this before, and I'll probably say it again, but Ella Frank does not disappoint. I feel as though I have been waiting on this novel forever--that is how strongly Tate and Logan captivated me in Try, the first book in this series.

And their story continues to captivate me. Ella Frank's style is light and easy to read, and yet it draw you into the story of this sexy, passionate couple. Neither one of them are holding back on their feelings in this novel, and both are putting their hearts on the line for one another. It was wonderful to see them grow in their relationship, become more emotionally intimate and open up to one another about their thoughts, feelings, fears and pasts. This is what hooks me in romance--the emotional, raw side of it. And Tate and Logan go through a lot in this book, and yet come out stronger than ever before as a couple by the end. 

Heat level?  
Start at the beginning, with Book One.
All of you out there who love the steamy, you're sure to get your full in this novel. These two don't hold out on one another from beginning to end, and knowing how connected they are, how emotionally invested they are in their relationship makes it that much more hawt in my opinion. That's the thing that I truly love about Tate and Logan, they don't hold back anything. If they are angry with each other, they let it be known. If they want to kink it up, they let that be known too. If it's time to bear their heart and souls, well they take that plunge even if it might cost them. It was a delight to read these stubborn, passionate and sassy characters again.

The best thing about this book? There's more of their story to be told! I'm all squeee to know that because I honestly cannot get enough of these two. There's something about them facing the world proudly, together and united that just puts me in a happy place because I know these two are going to be able to face down anything together. Ella Frank has once again blown my socks off.
I would like to thank the author for providing me with a copy of the novel, in exchange for an honest review.
