Blog Tour Stop, Review and Giveaway: 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?

Denise’s Review:

TRY was my favorite book of 2013.  I read it no less than 6 times–no really SIX!!!!  I love Logan and Tate.  All the stereotypes of crazy readers, I was that person.  And waiting for TAKE seemed interminable to this crazy reader.  I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect.  TRY was all about the men meeting, and Logan getting Tate to TRY something new.  TRY was about the men having hot steamy sex, and learning about each other.  It also was about learning about Logan, how mouthy he could be, what he was willing to do or say to get what he wanted from Tate.

So, with TAKE I wasn’t sure what expect.  I knew there would be hot steamy sex, because, well, it’s Logan and Tate, and those men are seriously HAWT together.  Ms. Frank wrote this book beginning right where TRY left off, and you find the men beginning to find a relationship with each other, despite the obstacles ahead of them. And there are some pretty heavy obstacles.  Finding their way together becomes challenging, as they try to figure out what their relationship is, and how to TAKE what they need from it.   It was also Tate’s turn in this book.  He was able to realize that this was what he wanted, and he was willing to TAKE charge and go for it, leaving Logan slightly confused, but game for whatever was ahead.

I will say this book put me through many emotions, as I think it was intended to.  I felt surprise, joy, sadness, extreme anger, and shed quite a few tears.  And the ending, well, you will love it, and you will be screaming (as I was!) ELLA FRANK, HOW COULD YOU DO THAT TO ME!!!! But in the end, you will be happy to know that our boys find their way with each other.  Oh, and they still continue to have some seriously hot steamy sex.  The cover, by the way….you will LOVE that scene!!!!  You will be able to see that scene come to fruition before your very eyes, and it is all worth it.

This book earned 5 pieces of eye candy from me.  But for very different reasons than TRY (which was also 5 pieces of eye candy, if you couldn’t tell by my many re-reads).  TRY was all about the men meeting, and convincing Tate to give this a chance.  TAKE was about emotions and the reality that happens when you can’t control circumstances around you.  It’s a roller coaster ride, and I loved every single minute of it.  I got off the ride, and am already ready to get back on the ride and go again!  Well done Ella, well done!

Val’s Review

Take is the sequel for the amazing book Try by Ella Frank. It starts off right where we left off in the end of Try.
In this book you get to experience so much more emotions between Logan and Tate . Oh, we still get that quick wit banter between them both, but we also get to experience the growth between both Logan and Tate from hot lust to love.
Logan who is normally very comfortable in his own skin, and life, is finding it very hard to get a hold of his emotional feelings, while his brother, Cole, tries to shed some light. Cole is very supportive of Logan and tries to make him get a grip and put his past hurt behind him so he can go and “Take” what is right there waiting for him.
We see a different side of Tate also in here and the decisions he has to face with his not so understanding family and even Logan is surprised to say the least on how everything unfolds .
There is times in this book you just want to smack some people senseless and then also times when u will be at the edge of your seat feeling their individual pain but Ella wrote this so brilliantly that everything just fits in so smoothly. I’m not going to give away anymore because this book is just so amazing that everyone has to experience the feel of how beautiful it was written. All I can say is Game Night was epic omg you will absolutely love this part sooo much.
“Can you sharpen this for me?”
“You want me to play with your pencil, Tate?”
Hilarious. “The sharpener is right by you .
You just have to pick it up and slide it in.”
So you see we still get to witness all the great banter between Logan and Tate but also how much they grown with each other and how they both help to ease each other’s insecurities .
“You saying I’m easy?”
“No…. I’m guessing you’re hard. Really f***ing hard.”
If you haven’t read these great books yet you are missing out on an amazing story. I highly recommend this book, and all I can say is Ella blew us away with this story she is brilliant in all her writing and I cannot wait to read more from Logan and Tate. If I could give it more than 5 pieces of eye candy, I would.

Denise and Val’s Favorite Quotes:
“If I die, I just want you to know, that you have never looked hotter than you do right now, and that is the only reason I am about to risk my life.”
Tate raised a hand, and before he shut the visor, he promised, “I’ll look even hotter in fifteen minutes when I’m naked. So, quit bitching and get on the bike Logan.”
“Fuck you”, he responded.
It was time to move on, time to go to his new safe place. It was time to go to Logan’s.
“But yes, since it seems like that fact needs confirming.  I am having sex with Logan, and you know what? I’ve never been more satisfied in my entire life.”

“That’s your truck?”
“It’s so…”
“So what?” Logan challenged as he pulled his keys from his pocket.
“Excuse me. I’ll have you know I was driving this baby all through college and she still runs like a dream.”
Tate watched as Logan walked over to run his hand over the scratched-up tailgate, and he was amazed that he even made that look sexy. Like he was stroking a lover.
“And it’s a she, huh?”
Now around at the passenger’s side, Logan opened the door and looked at him over the bed of the truck. “Yeah. Jealous?”
Laughing, Tate walked over to where Logan stood with a hand on the door and kissed him slowly on the mouth. 
“I’m jealous of anything you stroke like that.”
“Get in the truck, Tate.”
“Or else?”
Logan stepped forward, crowding him back against the inside frame of the vehicle. “You’re not ready for the or else…”
