Tryverb: 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?


This is the first book of Ella Frank’s that I’ve read, and to say I struggled with it would be a small understatement. The book was good, but it doesn’t need to take 20 pages to tell all about a blowjob. Maybe that’s just me, but that’s what I think. Logan was a dick. I didn’t like him from the beginning and at the end of the book, I was starting to change how I felt about it. I have to read book #2 because I felt like this ended on a cliffhanger. Please, for the love of PETE, don’t start a m/m erotica book with “her creamy thighs where spread wide apart with his cock sliding in and out of her soaking wet pussy”. That’s not something that would appeal to an audience who is looking for a m/m book. “All of that honey-colored skin, naked under me, your curls all over my pillow as I drive my cock inside you—oh yeah, Tate, that’s going to happen. Mark my words.” is not realistic in my opinion. This book is labeled erotica and yes, there is a LOT of sex in this book. This was a book that I found at the library and honestly, the cover drew me in. I’m big on the teal on dark covers. Once I found out it was part of a series, I figured I might as well put the rest on hold. So, I have all books in the series (except the last one I think, because they didn’t have that one at any of the branches.) I’m going to give book 2 a shot and hopefully it doesn’t end in unanswered questions.
