Blog Tour (Book Review, Excerpt & Giveaway): Trust by Ella Frank

Title: Trust (Temptation #3)
Author: Ella Frank
Genre: M/M Romance
Rating: 5 stars


TRUST – 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 go.

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 Logan Mitchell.

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, successful lawyer.

Even though neither man expected the other, it’s time to trust in their relationship—but not everything comes so easily…

Michelle's Review

I cannot believe this is the last book.  This is not my first M/M book, but I know this was the first time Ella Frank has written an M/M book and for me, she did Logan and Tate justice.  I’ve been a fan of Ella’s work since the Exquisite Series.  Ella can write erotica, contemporary, even some dark romances so adding M/M to her repertoire is just an extra bonus.

Let me recap the series a little, in Try, Logan was in hot pursuit of Tate, Tate who has never been with a man, but found himself really attracted to Logan, gave it a Try, get where I am going with this?  In Take, Logan and Tate are giving their relationship a go even though Tate has now been disowned by his own family.  Their relationship is relatively new, so Tate wants Logan to Take him and move forward with their relationship, oh boy and the cliffhanger after this book had me reeling.  Now on to Trust, ah that nice five letter word.

Trust picks up where Take left off although you will assume that this situation would put a damper on Logan and Tate’s relationship, it did not.  Logan and Tate are really making their relationship stronger.  Talk about full circle people!  Although Tate’s family will have nothing to do with him, Logan’s brother and his friends are now a part of Tate’s family.  Logan wants Tate permanently in his home, not that Tate doesn’t want that, but he wants to bring more to the relationship not has Logan’s lover, but as an equal partner.  Somewhere at the half way point of this book, my heart was about to shatter.  My heart was pounding, I was screaming at my IPad, but Ella did not disappoint me.

I could go on and on, but I want you to one-click this book and enjoy the ride.  As I am sitting here typing up this review, I am so sad to see this book end, but so happy for the story.  Logan and Tate’s relationship, at first not conventional, but through it all has really come full circle.  I had to PM the author after my read to let her know, how sad I was, but that I really loved the series.  I think I might have begged her for a novella because Logan and Tate has more stories up their sleeves.  Ella hinted there might be.  Ella did an awesome job with her first M/M series and I hope and pray that she writes some more in the near future.

I will leave you with some of my favorite quotes:  Dirty talking Logan to Tate:  “I can’t decide if I want to love on you or fuck you until you’re too weak to walk.”  Tate to Logan expressing his love for him:  “I had no idea when you first sat down across from me that night-no idea what I’d been missing,”  Tate whispered.  “It was you.”

“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 talking altogether.

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.”
