BLOG TOUR ~ Take by Ella Frank!

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?

“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…”



I love this series but I have a confession to make, when I read Try, I was thinking to myself -really??? Would a guy who had never questioned his sexuality really fall for another man, albeit a handsome, charming lawyer who happened into the bar he worked at one night? Not that I didn’t love Try, I did but it just nagged away in the back of my mind that I wasn’t 100% invested.

Well Take blew away any doubt I had, where Try saw them struggle to be together, Take is all about them staying together. We see a whole different side to Logan, his vulnerable side and in finding out about what happened to him in the past we learn why he won’t let Tate hide their relationship.

Tate grows so much in this book, he’s had so much to contend with emotionally but that was just the tip of the iceberg to what he faces in this book and face it he does, with Logan at his back he stands up to everybody he loves and what happens to him is truly heartbreaking.

I love how the guys are with each other, the banter, the emotion, the sincerity and the sex is HOT! They tie each other in knots and end up on a more level footing, seeming to know who needs to be strong for who as the situation dictates.
We also see more of the old gang in this book, game night was genius and Tate is accepted into the fold without any hesitation on anybody's part and it was a hoot to read. 
And Cole *sigh* Cole was just a sweetheart in this book, he was truly there for Logan, pointing out the obvious and not letting him self destruct, it was heart warming to read and made me love Cole just a little bit more.

The ending is abrupt but perfect and left me hankering for book 3, I cannot wait!
