Amy and Angela’s Top Ten Reasons Why Take by Ella Frank Rocks Our World

Better yet, why LOGAN and TATE rock our world! Take is book two in the Temptation series from Ella Frank. We couldn’t wait to get back to this couple after experiencing all the scorching heat these two created in Try. If you are a reader of the m/m genre and enjoy sizzling, emotional, desperate man on man loving, you NEED to be reading this series!


Top 10 Reasons Logan and Tate ROCK OUR WORLD!


10. Logan is cocky. Pun intended. Cocky between his legs and out of his mouth. His heart is vulnerable, but to the outsider, he’s all confidence.

“So fucking what? We were together after the fact, not before. Although, let’s face it, she never would have stood a chance against me. I give really good head.”


“He knows my last name. He called me Mr. Mitchell. Even I’m not that kinky. When I fuck someone, he’s gonna scream my name. Not Mr. Mitchell like I’m his father…Although…can you call me that for the rest of the night? I want to hear how it sounds out of your mouth.”

9. Tate is direct and has no problem relaying to Logan what he needs. Especially when he’s agitated, horny or both.

“You know what I need? I need you to eat dinner with me so I can tell you what happened and then suck my dick like you promised. Is that okay with you?”


“I was hoping you’d…” he trailed off and had Logan instantly curious.

“That I’d…?”

“You know…”

Logan wondered what he was trying to say. Yeah, they’d definitely come a long way in the past few days, but they still needed to be–

“Use your tongue.”

Oh, that’s what he wants. Dirty, dirty Tate.

8. It’s really Logan that has a dirty, dirty mouth and Tate is not afraid to use it in all sorts of ways.

“I can’t wait to give your mouth a reason to be so fucking dirty.

7. Logan and Tate are both possessive and jealous. It made for some quite humorous and HOT moments.

“Know him well?” Logan’s eyes found his, and when they crinkled at the sides behind his glasses, Tate knew he was laughing at him.

“Well as in…?”

“As in, does he suck like a Hoover too?”


“But being dirty with you is so easy.”

“Kind of like the smartass staring at me?” Tate asked.

“You saying I’m easy?” Tate grinned across from him and knew that this would drive him nuts, so he moved in and lowered his voice.

“No…I’m guessing you’re hard. Really fucking hard.”

6. These men are insatiable for each other and it makes for some smokin’ hot as hell foreplay and sex!

“I’ve been waiting and wanting, and when I’m finally back inside you, I’m not gonna leave until I’ve fucked you so hard and long that we can barely move. And we need to be inside for that.”

“Yes…goddamn, Logan.” he cursed, his breathing erratic, and then he was released.

“Now get in the fucking truck before I change my mind.”


“I wanted to touch you so bad when you sent me that photo this morning.”

Logan swallowed as his eyes closed against the pleasure of Tate circling him with his fist. “Yes,” he hissed out as Tate’s warm breath floated over his lips.

“But you know what I wanted more?”

“Tell me,” he demanded, hoping for– “I wanted to taste you.” Exactly that.

Logan grit his teeth as Tate ran his fist up his turgid length.

“This,” Tate told him, swiping his thumb over the head of his cock, “was all shiny and wet, and I wanted to lick it clean. I’ve become hooked on everything when it comes to you. Everything, Logan.”

5. Then there’s the sweet sex. Right in the middle of the sexy as hell times they go and say stuff like this:

“What are you trying to do, kill me?

Tate shook his head. “No, I’m making you mine.”

Logan released his hard-on and grabbed Tate’s ass, pulling him up so he could rub their cocks together. “Don’t you know? I’m already yours.”


“What do you want?” Tate whispered over the running water. “Be honest.”

When he stepped closer and cupped either side of his neck, Logan’s heart ached as it pounded in his chest. Then he raised his hands to circle Tate’s wrists.

“I want to know where you are when you aren’t with me, and I’ll wish I’m there.”

4. Tate confronts his family and Logan is right by his side when he does.

“It was stupid of me to think you would try and understand my side of things instead of the gossipy bullshit that Diana and Jill brought back to you. But yes, since it seems like that fact needs confirming. I am having sex with Logan, and you know what? I’ve never been more satisfied in my entire life.”

3. These two are so freaking emotional and angsty while they are trying to figure out what they want from each other.

“You don’t get it, do you? It wasn’t that I didn’t want you,” Tate confessed. “It was because I wanted you so much. I needed space to be able to think. Because around you, all I want to do is fall without thought.”


“You make me crazy and furious and out of my mind with need, but in the end, you make me so fucking happy. I can’t ever remember feeling this way. And no one is going to tell me it’s wrong. No one.”

2. Logan and Tate are one of the most engaging m/m couples to witness falling in love. The funny, tender, sexy, vulnerable, desperate, desirable moments they share only make you greedy for more.

“Ahh, fucking hell,” Tate cursed, and as his hand loosened in his hair, Logan reached up and ran his finger through the sticky liquid that had hit his nipple. He looked right at Tate as he brought his finger to his mouth and sucked it inside.

“Not so sweet after all.” Logan commented with a wink.


Logan shook his head. “There’s a hint of sweet with a full helping of stubborn and dirty as fuck.”

Tate raised a brow as if to say, “And?”

“In other words, just right.”


“Logan?” He refocused on Tate and felt his heart just about stop when he said, “I will never take advantage of you. Not ever. Thank you for trusting me enough to tell me.”

That right there was what the words “I love you” meant to him–trust–and he had entrusted Tate with every secret he had, even the one he was most ashamed of.

1. These guys. How in the world are we ever going to survive the wait for book three? HOW?

He dreamt about this moment.

The moment he’d be making love with someone.

As Tate stared up at him, Logan knew that this was that moment.

He moved over him, positioned his cock, and slid home.


Now you have a taste of why LOGAN and TATE rock our world. So what are you waiting for? Just give them a Try and we bet they will rock your world too! 😉

    Loved these books. The way they talk to each other. Omg so good. The wait for book 3 will kill me

  2. says

    I really liked this one too (duh). I was especially happy the end wasn’t a dramatic cliffy. I can live with where it stopped this time.

  3. KellyM says

    Really great post. Made me laugh too. I do love this series. I am also anxiously awaiting book #3. I am praying it comes out by Christmas. I hate having to wait ! I love Logan and Tate almost as much as Zane & Ty. It’s a close one.

    • says

      I”m with you Kelly. Logan & Tate are right there in my top faves along with Zane & Ty. And yes, wouldn’t book #3 be and awesome present from Santa!

  4. Amy says

    Try was so so good. I read it when it first came out and fell for the dirty, sweet goodness of Logan & Tate. I can’t wait to read Take! I also will listen to Audio books at work and in the car and I was excited and a little worried when I saw Try had come out on Audio a couple days ago. I love them so much I hope they found a narrator that will do their voices and the book justice.

  5. Kathmandu says

    I gave in and got the audio version to listen to at work. I may still be working but I will be entertained.

    I love Zane & Ty too but Ella Frank really made this story great. Absolutely loved how Tate just flipped Logan’s world.

  6. says

    Loved this one, Try & Take are on the my favorites MM book list, I adore the GFY aspect, so well done, if you girls have other GFY books like this one to recommend, I’m all ears =). Ty & Zane, Griff & Dante (Hot Head) , Jared & Matt (Promises), Jake & Brandon (Caught Running) and now Logan & Tate are my all time favorites gay couples.

  7. says

    These quotes have really whetted my appetite for this! I wasn’t told sold on the cover or the blurb, but hearing more about it makes such a difference. Thanks :)
