Trust (Temptation #3) by Ella Frank: Blog Tour Review, Excerpt & Giveaway


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…

“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.”

Review by Yvette:

Can Ella Frank please write more M/M Romance? I mean, I've read and loved a number of her books but her Temptation series is by far my favorite. Not only are Logan and Tate the sexiest, the most captivating, and the most memorable of the author's couples, but you'd be hard-pressed to find another fictional couple with a connection so palpable that it gives you goosebumps and will make you want to read their story again and again to recapture the magic. The chemistry between Logan and Tate is incomparable in its sheer intensity and, impossible as it may seem, it's only grown stronger over the course of the series. The romance between the couple is hands down the steamiest, most passionate, and most electric that I've had the pleasure of reading and the third and final book in the series, Trust, takes this romance to an even greater level.

Despite how far Logan and Tate have come as a couple, they're still in the process of getting to know one another, unveiling each other's hopes and fears and having to overcome lingering insecurities. Tate and Logan have their moments of possessiveness but there’s a newly developed emotional depth between them that raises the stakes in their relationship. The narrative has them facing a few unexpected roadblocks and I loved that the author stayed true to their characters with the ways they each dealt with adversity. The connection between Logan and Tate has always been strong, but Trust showed a more vulnerable side of each character that leant sincerity to their actions and to their words. 

If Try was all about the chase, and Take was about Logan and Tate finding their footing in their relationship, then Trustt is about settling down a bit from their whirlwind romance. I was glad to see that, with all the changes they’ve encountered, Logan and Tate are still the same fun-loving characters I got to know and love throughout their journey. They have an easy rapport that, when mixed with their overwhelming attraction to each other, turns their explicit innuendo into an aggressive consummation of the sexual tension that constantly simmers between them. Their insanely hot sexual encounters are even more intimate because of the newfound trust built between them – a trust which allows them to indulge in fantasies and keep the spark between them burning just as brightly as ever. As the conclusion to the series, Trust is the perfect sendoff for Logan and Tate but even after three phenomenal books, I still can’t help but want more.
