Take 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?

Take is the second book in the Temptation series. You should read Try before you take on Take.
Hooked on Tate and Logan from having loved Try, I dived into Take. This story takes Tate and Logan deeper into their relationship. Whereas during the first book, it was mostly about their getting to know one another. Now, their families and friends find out. I found this a very good look into how closed-minded some people are. For one of them, their family is completely supportive. For the other, the exact opposite. Thankfully, when all is said and done, they at least have each other.
In this part of the Temptation series, we come face-to-face with a horror from Logan’s past and truly see why he closed himself off from relationships for so long. And even though the book ended on a cliff-hanger, it wasn’t a worrisome one. Yes, it left me drooling for book 3. (*cough* Ella, book 3, please!) But I also knew where Logan and Tate stood at the end of Take.
Once again the erotic scenes are delicious, the sexual tension between the men still pops off the page, and it has the added spice of true feelings popping up. Definitely another 5 stars for Ella Frank.
