Logan Mitchell has always TAKEN what he wants and the word NO is not something that he is accustomed too. This way of thinking has always been very successful for Logan in his personal and professional life and this also worked wonders the night he meets beautiful bartender Tate. Logan in the first time in a long time has found himself in a conflict and he has to make a choice and this decision will force him to take a chance on something real.
Tate Morrison has always TAKEN chances in his life and this one night he took one of the biggest chances he has ever taken and that was in meeting Logan. He has thought it was just simply a physical attraction to Tate but he soon realizes that this is just the tip of the iceberg. He is now dreaming of what their life would be like together which would be the most amazing and beautiful relationship. Now the questions for both men start and will they make it as a couple? Will their own issues and baggage be too much for them to handle? Can they love each other for exactly who they are? Will Logan and Tate have an HEA?
This story starts off where TRY left off with Logan waking up in the bed of the not so straight Tate. I was overjoyed that Logan wanted to TAKE a chance on something that could be amazing and beautiful with Tate. The author takes us on a beautiful view of this new and fragile relationship that they guys are starting. I thought how the author wrote about Tate's attraction to Logan and how new this was for him considering what his sexuality has always been was so brilliantly done. Ella wrote so realistically when dealing about Tate's inner struggle with his sexuality and coming out to his very Catholic family. The bigotry that follows him opening up to his family is very real for many gay men with dealing with acceptance. I was thrilled how Ella wrote it in such a beautifully and heart wrenching way. Then comes the famous ex-wife finding out but it gave Logan more reasons to use his smart mouth when putting Diana in her place, I loved these scenes and was grinning like a Cheshire cat. The coming to terms with being gay that Tate had to deal with was some of the most brilliant and beautifully done writing. His internal issues has so many different variables to it and Ella again got it spot on.
I loved the character of Tate and all his struggles and waiting for him was the man who loved Tate more than anyone else is the beautiful Logan. I completely felt these men so much and their love for one another was some amazing reading. I can't recommend this novel TAKE by Ella Frank enough as it was one of my favourite gay novels in a long time and you will love reading about the love that Logan and Tate share!!!!
