Blog Tour: Take by Ella Frank


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?

My 4 star review

Logan raised his arm, and Tate found himself moving in toward his side. It was amazing that something so simple had once felt so complicated.
When, now, all it felt was right.

Logan Mitchell has never really done relationships. Especially after the ordeal he suffered in college. His motto was pretty much love them and leave them. That is until Tate entered his life.
Tate is going through a not so clean divorce. Not only that, his ex-still hangs around his family making things a bit complicated. Still trying to figure things out with Logan. Tate continues to explore the attraction he feels towards this man. An attraction and intensity that was missing from his marriage.

He’d been so controlled and gentle but then fierce and passionate when he’d told him he was ready for more. He’d taken everything Tate had feared and made it acceptable. In fact, he’d made it desirable.

Both wanting more together but at the same time both men have to face their fears head on. One from the past and the other the present. They learn to give and to take, they also learn that together that can get past any obstacle they may face.

“No. I’m done pretending I don’t understand what’s going on here. It’s crazy and intense, but Logan, it’s real. Every time I’m near you, I feel alive.” He closed his eyes and whispered, “what they did and what they said…that’s their choice, and you are mine.”

I have to say that m/m isn’t really something I have read before. Ella did such an amazing job with Try that I just has to see where Tate and Logan ended up.

She wrote their relationship so beautifully. It was hot, sexy and she did it with class. The issues that they faced are real every day issues that couples face every day with assumptions, criticism and cruelty. You can’t help who you fall in love with no matter the gender.

I love how Logan and Tate supported each other through the rough times and compromised during others. That is how ALL relationships should be. It is all about communication, compromising and love.

This was a beautiful story with two great characters that I absolutely adore. The temptation series is a fantastic and sexy read.
As always, Ella did an outstanding job!

“That’s your truck?”


“It’s so…”

“So what?” Logan challenged as he pulled his keys from his pocket.


“Excuse me. I’ll have you know I was driving this baby all through college and she still runs like a dream.”

Tate watched as Logan walked over to run his hand over the scratched-up tailgate, and he was amazed that he even made that look sexy. Like he was stroking a lover.

“And it’s a she, huh?”

Now around at the passenger’s side, Logan opened the door and looked at him over the bed of the truck. “Yeah. Jealous?”

Laughing, Tate walked over to where Logan stood with a hand on the door and kissed him slowly on the mouth. 

“I’m jealous of anything you stroke like that.”

“Get in the truck, Tate.”

“Or else?”

Logan stepped forward, crowding him back against the inside frame of the vehicle. “You’re not ready for the or else…”
