Try (Book 1 of the Temptation trilogy) was my first ever strictly M/M read. Before meeting Logan and Tate, I’d only read ménage stories with male-male love which included a female in on the action too. I was already a fan of Ella Frank from her Exquisite series, so I eagerly hopped on this M/M bandwagon.
Despite the fact that I had to suspend disbelief on the gay for you nature of Logan and Tate’s love affair, I fell in love with these two men and was invested in seeing this trilogy through to the end. Having read the full story now, I feel like the love story really hit its peak in the second book, Take. That’s when we really see what Tate and Logan are made of as a couple. There’s a perfect mix of sexy hotness and story.
That being said, Trust was lackluster compared to the first two novels for me. Here, Logan and Tate are firm in their relationship. They’ve weathered the storm of Tate being outed and disowned by his family. Logan has dealt with his past and knows Tate is IT for him. They are truly, madly, deeply in love with one another. They have hot, dirty sex every chance they get. We get it — they are committed!
Trust wasn’t a bad book. It is definitely well-written. It pains me to say it but I felt Logan and Tate had just run their course. The story dragged on at parts; thus, the two incidents that were supposed to be tests to prove to us — AGAIN, I might add — that Tate and Logan are each others’ one and only, just fell flat for me.
Overall, I satisfying conclusion to the Temptation series, just not the best ever for me. If you’ve loved this series, Trust will leave you feeling just as in love with Logan and Tate, if not more so, with a heartwarming end.
