Take (Temptation Series #2) by Ella Frank blog tour with review


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 Review

We couldn't wait to get our hands on Take. We pick up where we left off in book 
1, Try. The dynamics have changed for Logan and Tate.
Logan's mind is in over drive as he tries to piece together what it is about 
Tate that has changed his view on relationships. 

"With this man, he wanted it all. All he’d once dreamed of was right there 
within reach. All he had to do was reach out and take it.”

Tate was nervous, never did he think that a man would capture his heart but just 
the sound of Logan's voice put him at ease, it also helped that Logan was a 
gorgeous man. 

“I didn’t even stop to think how old you were. I just had to have you. That 
should tell you everything.”

Like all new relationships you get to know one another, of course Logan and Tate 
do it with a sexiness and banter they keep you wanting to know more. 

“We’re hardly strangers. But then, you might have forgotten all the dirty 
details at your age”

When Tate tells his family he is dating a man things don't go smoothly and 
they're against his new relationship. While Logan's brother Cole is accepting, 
he is bringing things to light for Logan and he's not sure how to deal with 
these things. 

While Logan is comfortable in his own skin he isn't so comfortable with deep 
feelings and relationships, for Tate it's still new to him and now to his 

“Breathe and give him what he wants. He’s right there asking for you. So reach 
out and fucking take him”

They are both still struggling with what they are feeling for each other, coming 
to terms with it and admitting it is hard for both of them.

“The lock that had kept his heart firmly shut away had finally found its key.”

What happens when Tate takes Logan home to meet his family? Let's just say his 
mother needs to be bitched slapped. With Logan by his side Tate confronts his 
family head on and says things that surprised even Logan. (Kristy - I just want 
to wrap Tate and Logan in a Mumma Bear hug). Logan being the sexy alpha male 
that he is has a few choice words of his own. 

“There’s a hint of sweet with a full helping of stubborn and dirty as fuck”

With the words of his parents still fresh in his head he does the one thing that 
is going to break Logan...(Kayla- I wanted to scream at Tate to not shut Logan 

Just when things go back to better than ever a person from Logan's past makes an 

Kristy - Ella Frank is an amazing author she pulls you in right from the very 
start, hooks you and doesn't release. Ella does a fantastic job taking you 
through the eyes of another with self discovery, acceptance, trust, self doubt, 
denial, hurt and love. This is a beautifully written story that touches you on 
so many emotional levels. Every person deserves to love and be loved regardless 
who that person is. Having a family that is unsupportive of your life choices is 
heart breaking, poor Tate my heart broke for him. I love that Logan was 
outspoken and taking care of what's his. 

Kayla – It’s been two days since I’ve finished Take and I think I’ll need 
another few to get over this book. While I have no firsthand experience with 
what a same sex couple faces, Ella portrayed what I believe many people that are 
in a same sex relationship go through. Bravo on another fantastic book Ella. I 
cannot wait to see where Tate and Logan take us next.  

Emma - I feel like I have waited forever for this book so when I received an ARC 
I almost wet myself and dropped everything to get it on with my favourite boys. 
Ella has an amazing writing skill that pulls you right in holds onto you and 
won't let go. Be warned you will be in a book funk after this for one reason or 

We want more Logan and Tate so Ella, get writing!

“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…”
