REVIEW: Take (Temptation #2) 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?

5+++++ Sexy Love me some Logan Stars

I can't tell you how much I LOVED this book, no LOVE these BOYS. There's something unique and special about them that just grabs your attention from the get go. There's also a lot of good reviews out for this already so I'm just going to explain some of my thoughts with you. I don't know why its taken me so long to pick this one up probably because I was scared of it leaving me on a cliff-hanger but this one didn't it left me with a HFN feeling and a BIG smile on my face for what's to come. TRUST is on its way too so NOW would be a good time to grab it if you haven't already.

A Small Recap
In Try Logan temped straight Tate to delve into the M/M world, to have a night with him to TRY HIM and there was something so 'alluring' and sexy about Logan that Tate couldn't say No he tried and then soon got addicted to him, he couldn't say NO No-longer and kept saying YES, but with Tate coming from a good ole Catholic family and a man who's also going through a sticky divorce that left Try with questions on how Tate would deal with the questions in his head is he gay? is he bi? Those questions I suppose in some respects kept on in Take but Take takes you on a much deeper emotional ride where I was hooked and enjoyed the journey of more. I liked Try I gave it 4 Stars you can read my Review of Try here. Try was sexy and all kinds of naughty so that gave me my smut tastes a lick but TAKE was sooo much more I LOVED it in every way possible.

Logan ahhh what a beautiful sexy classy man from the outside he seems goal orientated, STRONG and somewhat head strong, he is the BEST at his job and always gets what he wants and he WINS in the courtroom. Except with Tate he feels a little unsettled that the one person who he is starting to depend on could walk away any moment.

"All he'd once dreamed of was right there within reach. All he had to do was reach out and take it."

Logan I suppose seems to be that strong doesn't give a shit kind of feel in Try but here in Take I completely fell for him hook, line and sinker because he is holding his emotions close to his sleeve he's scared of getting hurt he's scared of being treated like the outside man basically above all he just wants to be loved and he wants TATE to be the one to do that. Saying all that he does nothing but be there to support and love Tate, here in Take he really does take all and strive to move forward with what he wants.

What I loved about this instalment was their fierce love for each other that just grabs a hold of you, you just can't walk away from it, its so much more deeper and in that it also scares the shit out of Logan. But also Tate and what this means for him as a person and who he is, also what it means for THEM? because he has NEVER felt the longing and pure not only LUST but love he feels towards Logan this whole situation that they both are in is so very scary. Except that's the kind of love we all want right? The scariest of emotions are the ones worth fighting for.

"I didn't even stop to think how old you were, I just had to have you. That should tell you everything."

"As he drifted off to sleep, Tate felt for the very first time that he was exactly where he was supposed to be, and he didn't care what anyone else thought." 

The guy had him a second away from confessing his very soul there in the fucking hallway. "I swear you make me lose my mind. I feel like I'm going crazy." "Logan.?" He put his mouth to Tate's ear. "yes?" "I fucking love that." 

"Stop what exactly? Touching? Talking? Or inviting you to have me any way you like, anywhere you like? Because all you have to say are the words and I'm yours."

Logan has insecurities because of his past and the people who have hurt him, made him feel inferior. He has some secrets that only Cole knows about, and Cole (his brother) doesn't know the whole story either. I'm going to leave you to enjoy the rest concerning that tidbit of information just understand it takes a lot to let someone into his heart.

And then we have Tate. Tate is uneasy concerning his family and ex-to-be-wife who are very un supportive in my eyes if there ever were a family I didn't like it would be these I mean HOW DARE THEY treat him with so much disrespect and not love him unconditionally is beyond me, saying that in turn this is Tate's chance to make Logan his home and to Let Logan in. This is Tate's opportunity to show Logan how worthy he is off Logan's love and to put LOGAN first.

My Final Thoughts
I can't tell you how much I loved every word, I FELT every emotion, enjoyed the plot and how the pages took me in till I finished. I actually finished this Monday its now Thursday and I'm still thinking about L&T and all the yummyness that surrounds them both. This book is all kinds of sexy you take out the bitchy women and your left with two very strong Alpha Males in their own right, as individual and put them together you get a whole lot of fireworks and Chemistry. There's a lot of sex as expected but honestly in this one there was never too much it never dragged, I never skimmed I wanted more and when the next scene appeared I was at the edge of my seat loving the feelings of joy I was experiencing by living it with them 'together' and the power they both held in who was the Alpha at that moment.

Overall this was a joy to read and I can't wait for Trust.
