SPOTLIGHT REVIEW – Try (Temptation #1) by Ella Frank

Try Cover

ALP Synopsis1

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?

ALP PatriciaReview OwlNote to Reader: I listened to this title via audible. As such, my review reflects that experience.

I finally stepped outside my comfort zone to give this book a “try” and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. While I had only read one m/m prior to Try, this book was far superior in intensity, hotness and overall enjoyment.

The characters were great guys with fabulous chemistry which made them easy to love. It was difficult to watch them both struggle with their insecurities about the feelings they had for one another. But the connection they shared was nothing short of beautiful and I was thrilled with the experience of watching them fall for each other.

While there were an abundance of memorable moments, I’d like to take a minute to appreciate the EPIC HOTNESS of the phone sex. That scene was EROTIC & UNFORGETABLE. I never knew two men could be such a turn-on, but let’s just say that tumblr is your friend when your imagination is lacking.

This is book one in the series and the remaining books are currently available. So if you have been looking for your next erotica read, give these boys a try. Tate & Logan will make sure you don’t soon forget them.

Overall Rating 4-4.5 Stars

ALP AuthBio1 Owl


I am first and foremost a proud Australian, but currently reside in Texas with my husband.

I love to read and write contemporary and erotic romances, but I also like to step outside of the box at times when it comes to telling a story that really speaks to me.

I absolutely adore dessert. I could skip the main meal and head straight to the dessert line every time…especially anything that is covered in caramel.

I am a GLEEK (yes I admit it… So? It makes me happy), on the other hand I love Dexter and he makes me happy too, so analyze that!

I love to sing really bad at the top of my lungs, and I often have conversations with myself.

Some of my favorite authors include; JR Ward, Tiffany Reisz, Nalini Singh, Lori Foster, Lauren Dane, SJ Frost and many more.

Last but certainly not least, I am the author of The Exquisite Series, Blind Obsession and most recently Try.
