Publisher's Summary

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?

    "TEMPTATION SERIES: TRY - - TAKE - - & - - TRUST"
    Any additional comments?

    Ella Frank is by far the best author of the M/M romance genre dialog that I have ever read or listened to in her temptation series. Her mastery of word play is nothing short of literary art. Reading and / or listening to her books is like watching a fencing match; two friendly opponents thrusting, attacking, pairing the point of the words, with a counterpoint phrase, is nothing short of that the crystallized contained violence of classical music. It is fierce, violent, scary, and utterly festinating. It is like watching two people engaged in the stylized movements of a tango. It begins in a slow rhythmic approach of the two bodily magnetic forces of the dancers as they first attract, capture, and then spiral around each other until they touch, embrace, then fly apart but not too far to as to brake the power of the gravitational attraction of raw emotion, that will draw them back together for the next round of poetic movement. I simply could not put it down.

    Shannon Gunn is one of the best narrators of audio books. I have only been disappointed once in his interpretation of an author’s intent but not in this series; and not this time! He is spot on and a perfect fit for the temptation series. His range of character interpretation is in a word . . . superb! He captures all the whit, whimsy, drama and explosive flash of the author’s words. It is like a kid driving glove finely fitted to the driving force of the author’s hand.

    My only disappointment at this point is with Amazon and their Audible division for not having the whispersync audio ready and available, as of the date of this review, for the third part of the temptation series TRUST. To borrow a phrase from the author “F. . . ing Unbelievable!”

    "TAKE" will definintly get you there"

    Oh geez, book 1 was really good this book is really good. Its always nice to have another look at characters you like. This is indeed an erotic series, these guys are classically hot and could easily get anyone they want. Yet when they choose each other they keep you informed as to why. Its raw attraction at it's best. Learning curves with sex is a fun part of this series too.
    Just enjoy its for your listening pleasure.

    "Deserves more than 5 stars! Even better than book 1!"
    If you could sum up Take in three words, what would they be?

    Sexy.Sweet.Heart-breaking.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The evolution of Tate and Logan's relationship was very realistic, in that it wasn't insta-love and it showed the real-life effects (or fall-out) of being true to yourself.


    Which character – as performed by Shannon Gunn – was your favorite?

    Logan.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I'm not really into movies, so I don't know.

    "Another fabulous read by Shannon Gunn"
    If you could sum up Take in three words, what would they be?

    Hot, Steamy, Unputdownable (It's my word - deal with it ;) )


    What other book might you compare Take to and why?

    Well, definitely Try as Take is the sequel.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Originally the first one that popped into my head was "game night" but when I truly thought about it, the scene that really stood out was when Tate needed some space and Cole found Logan at home with his coffee table busted and his brother a bit out of his mind. When Cole reminds Logan "He's just scared" and Logan replies. "So...Am...I." We finally see the worried boy in the man, the Logan who wants to love and be loved but doesn't believe it's actually possible.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes - so even though I couldn't sit for 11+ hours, I did my best with my earphones in my ears everywhere I went yesterday and today.


    Any additional comments?

    When is the third one out? *grins* I want more Logan & Tate! And definitely more Shannon Gunn.

    Story
    "As Great as Book 1!"
    What made the experience of listening to Take the most enjoyable?

    Several things: the writing, the story, the narration, and the characters.


    What other book might you compare Take to and why?

    Lee James' "Errors and Omissions: both are on the noir side, both have handsome, hot and randy main characters who are wrestling with relationships, and both have villains whom you love to hate. Last but certainly not least, both novels are compelling and incredibly well-written.


    Have you listened to any of Shannon Gunn’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. Shannon Gunn has a voice that's perfect for this series. He makes the characters come to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Tate's comebacks to Logan's smart-assed comments and arrogance always made me laugh. I got a little verklempt when Tate's blue-collar parents disowned him after he outed himself. The return of Logan's ex BF and the climax had me on the edge of my seat.


    Any additional comments?

    "Take" is an outstanding follow-up to "Try." Do not miss this series!

    "I still can't cope with the narrator"

    I will never listen to something narrated by Shannon Gunn again. It's embarrassingly bad.

    It's a shame because the story is hot.
