verb: to believe in the reliability, truth, or strength of another.
Up until now, Logan Mitchell has never had much of a reason to trust anyone.
Having struggled with a self-identity crisis throughout college, he’s spent the years since then creating a sophisticated facade to present to the world.
It’s an armor he thought was impenetrable—until he met Tate Morrison.
The gorgeous, headstrong bartender he’d sat across from only months ago has taken a tight hold of his heart, and Logan is discovering that it’s time to let
It’s time to let someone inside.
After years of placing his dreams on hold for his family, Tate has finally chosen to do what makes him happy and follow his heart.
The one thing he never would’ve imagined was that it would lead him into the arms of a man—and not just any man—the striking, never-takes-no-for-an-answer
Tate has fallen hard, and as his world is turned on its axis and they move forward together, he finds his life becoming more entwined with the confident,
Even though neither man expected the other, it’s time to trust in their relationship—but not everything comes so easily…
“What’s wrong with my hair? Are you saying I need to cut it?”
“No, I’m fucking not,” Logan said as he fingered the curls by Tate’s ear. “And you know it.”
“What would you do if I did shave my head?”
“Kill you? And likely get away with it since I have connections to a very reputable law firm.”
Tate chuckled and shoved Logan until he was on his back beside him. “Be serious.”
Logan turned his head on the pillow and ran his eyes over Tate’s full head of hair. Then he returned his gaze to the eyes watching him. “I would quite
possibly cry. For days.”
“Over my hair? It does grow back, you know.”
“Yeah, but not for months,” he grumbled. “Can you please stop talking so calmly about this? You’re making me nervous.”
Tate shifted until his long, lean body was stretched out above him, and Logan widened his legs to allow him to settle in between.
“Don’t worry,” Tate assured him as he lowered his head to kiss the corner of his mouth. He then moved those teasing lips to Logan’s ear and whispered, “I
like your hands in it too much to cut it off.”
Logan threaded his fingers through the thick waves and asked, “Like this?”
With a groan, Tate rocked his hips against him, and Logan twisted his fingers tighter.
“Exactly like that.”
“Good,” he said as he wound his legs around Tate’s. “Because this way, I can have a tight hold on you when you’re trying to distract me. I’m onto
you, Mr. Morrison. Don’t try to use your body against me.”
He almost lost his willpower when Tate, the cocky fucker, placed his hands on either side of his head and rubbed their erections together.
“You don’t want me to use my body on you?”
“Fuck you,” Logan said, knowing full well that, if he didn’t change the subject or get Tate the hell off him, he was going to roll him over and cease
Usually he’d love nothing more, but right now, he wanted to know why Tate had reacted so strongly to his question from last night—well, early morning .
“We need to talk.”
Interview with Logan & Tate
We were lucky enough to sit down with these gorgeous guys. Thanks for joining us boys.
Both: Thanks for having us.
We’re excited to have you…we don’t like to fuck around so let’s just get started.
Logan: Wait…wait…you don’t like to fuck around? Now, that’s a shame. Fucking around is one of my favorite past times.
Logan: What? It’s the truth.
Tate: Please, go ahead (Tate winks)
First things first, Tate, don’t ever cut your hair. Not a question but it needs to be said.
Logan: Damn right it needs to be said. And often.
Let’s talk piercings. Would you get one? Or more? If so, where? We’ve heard the Prince Albert is pretty amazing during sex…
Logan: Okay, I happen to know someone who has one of those (cough) Cole. And I say, good for him, but personally I don’t want anything through my cock. I only relate to my dick for pleasure, and I want to keep it that way. (Turns to Tate) Do you think I need a piercing to make sex more amazing?
Tate: (Shifts on the seat) You don’t need anything at all.
Logan: Mhmm, and you?
Tate: I don’t want any fucking piercings.
Logan: Good. I like you just the way you are.
Family game night was pretty fun…can we go to the next one? Do you have any ideas for games?
Logan: The kind of games I like to play, would NOT be played with relatives. Only with, Tate.
Who’s the better bottom? Your power exchange seems pretty equal since Tate “came” into his own in the relationship.
Tate: Jesus, you guys aren’t shy are you?
Logan: We’re fucking awesome in either position. We’re as equally bossy as we are at being needy, so it tends to work out for the best in the long run that we like to switch it up.
Do you consider yourself gay or pansexual?
Tate: I’ve never really considered a label for myself, however, having said that I have been attracted to both women, and now, a man. So I would say by most people’s standards I would be bisexual or as you stated pansexual which is a subset of bisexuality.
Logan: I’ve said from the beginning I was bisexual. I’ve enjoyed men and women. I just know that Tate is it for me. So that’s where my heart decided to land in the end.
So….you cool with Missy kneeing Chris in the balls? It would be a totally random hit.
Tate: I sure as fuck am.
Logan: I’m pretty sure Chris has gotten enough of a pounding from all those who know me.
We’re going to get a bit serious for a minute…hope you don’t mind.
Both: Nope we don’t mind…
Tate, have you heard from your sister? No I haven’t, and I don’t expect to.
Describe how your relationship has changed since coming out as a couple.
Tate: Not much. We were pretty connected from the get go. The only real difference is now everyone knows that Logan’s mine, and they should look elsewhere.
Logan: How has it changed? That right there. Tate gets so possessive. That’s so hot. Before, I think he was afraid what people would think, but now…now he has no problem getting in someone’s face and laying claim.
Tate: You should never be ashamed of who you love, and I love Logan. To be able to tell, and show, the world just makes it that much stronger. It solidifies it.
What makes sex more than a physical act for you?
Tate: I love that answer, and it’s true. What makes this different is that it’s with Logan.
Do you think you’ll get married one day?
Tate: We just moved in together, let’s not rush these things. I like the notion of one day at a time. Although I do see Logan in my future, for the rest of my life.
Logan: I agree with Tate, why rush these things? If it happens, it happens.
What about kids?
Both: (Laughs) No, everyone keeps asking. But just…no.
Where do you guys see yourself individually – personally and professionally – in 5 years?
(Look at one another and then grin)
Logan: Well I think that answers that.
Did you expect your story to resonate with so many?
Tate: Honestly, no. I was shocked that so many people were so…moved by our story. But I’m also happy to tell it, because I am extremely proud of who I love, and you should never feel the need to hide that away.
Logan: It doesn’t shock me that much. In the end, this is a love story. And who doesn’t like a good love story? Especially one with hot sex?
Tate: Of course you went there…
Logan: Of course I did.
Now we have some quick hits. Let’s see how well you know each other. We’re going to separate you…
Logan with Christina and Tate with Missy.
Logan: Do I have to go? Really?
We’re giving you the same quick hit questions but Logan, we want you to answer as Tate and Tate, we want you to answer as Logan. Then, we’ll compare answers and see who knows each other best…ready?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
november 2013 was the month of a couple of firsts for me. i read my first m/m book (i had previously read a couple of menage books but not strictly m/m books) and i read my first ella frank book. i’ve since read that m/m book 4 times and read every book ms. frank has written.
and i have one thing to say to ms. frank — THANK YOU!
thank you for the wonderful books you’ve given us. thank you for all the good times we’ve shared through your words. but most importantly, thank you for logan and tate. i’m not sure i can fully express how much i love these men and their story.
i fell immediately in love with logan in the first chapter of try – book 1 of this series. and that love has only grown with each book. simply put – logan is THE MAN. i absolutely love everything about him – his arrogance, his confidence, his bravado, his vulnerability, his compassion, his sarcasm, his wit and his absolute, soul deep love for tate. tate who was so vulnerable and sweet and confused when we met him. who is now strong, arrogant, confident, compassionate and so in love with logan that you can’t help but love him just as much.
this is absolutely one of my most favorite series ever. it is one i will read again and again and fall in love with again each time. am i sad these guys are done? YES. would i read more if ms. frank decided to grace us with more? YES. do i recommend you read not only this book but the whole series? YES.
so i say again, thank you ms. frank for sharing your boys with us and making us fall in love with them over and over and over again.
