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?

I have said this before and I'll say it again--it was torture waiting for this book to become available. That is the penance we pay for having had started reading ongoing series.

I can count in one hand the M/M stories I have read so far. But I'm not exactly saying no forever for more. (I'm too much of a Brokeback Mountain fan for that to ever happen.) But this series right here is fast becoming one of my all time favourites, M/M storywise or not.

So the story of Tate and Logan continues. This time it dealt more with how Tate had to tell his family about his relationship with Logan. Not to mention, that his family was the hypocritically religious type plus the fact that it wasn't him who broke the news to them. Instead it was his vindictive ex-wife. To cut the story short, it wasn't a pretty picture.

This book touched more on the realistic side of relationships like Tate and Logan's. Although there are beautiful stories of acceptance out there, there are equally the same of the opposite. It's a sad reality but I don't think that it is anyone's business to tell anybody who they can spend their lives with...unless it's a hurtful relationship. Which is an altogeher boat altogether.

Nevertheless, this was another great work from EF. I cannot wait to get my hands on the third book as Logan and Tate faces another demon: Logan's past. Bring it on!

Final verdict: 9/10. Great read.
