Publisher's Summary

Try - verb: To make an attempt or effort to do something or in this case…someone.

Sex. Logan Mitchell loves it, and ever since he realized his raw sexual appeal at a young age, he has had no problem using it to his advantage. Men and women alike fall into his bed - after all, Logan is not one to discriminate. He lives by one motto - if something interests you, why not just take a chance and try?

And he wants to try Tate Morrison.

Just coming out of a four-year marriage with an ex-wife from hell, a relationship is the last thing on Tate's mind. He's starting fresh and trying to get back on his feet with a new job at an upscale bar in downtown Chicago.

The only problem is, Tate has caught the unwavering and unwelcome attention of Mr. Logan Mitchell - a regular at the bar and a man who always gets what he wants.

Night after night Tate fends off the persistent advances of the undeniably charismatic man, but after an explosive moment in the bar, all bets are off as he finds his body stirring with a different desire than his mind.

As arrogance, stubbornness and sexual tension sizzles between the two, it threatens to change the very course of their lives.

Logan doesn't do relationships. Tate doesn't do men. But what would happen if they both just gave in and…tried?

    "Sexy, very sexy. And a story too."

    So often, really sexy books are in danger of descending into smut. Happily, this is not he case with this book. And boy, it's hot! Have fun!

    Where does Try rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    #1


    What did you like best about this story?

    I rated this my best read of 2013 and after listening to it I'd definitely rate it even higher if that was at all possible!
    Logan and Tate have so much chemistry it is amazing. The story is interesting and the sex scenes are HOT.


    What about Shannon Gunn’s performance did you like?

    Shannon has become my favourite narrator. He has a really easy voice to listen to and puts plenty of emotion and nuance into his work. He also is consistent in how he portrays each of the characters speech throughout the book.


    If you could rename Try, what would you call it?

    It couldn't possibly be anything but TRY


    Any additional comments?

    can't wait to hear TAKE!!

    "Incredible!"

    I'll just straight up admit it: I'm totally in love with Logan and Tate. I cannot believe how amazing this story is. It has everything I want in a book. Creative characters that I can't get enough of, a story that's original and interesting and keeps me fascinated. And let's be real, Ella Frank is a phenomenal author. Her writing style is clean, she makes the story flow and doesn't fill up her stories with useless scenes and details. Shannon Gunn is the perfect narrator for this book. His voice is exactly what I imagine Logan and Tate would sound like. So incredibly sexy. Wow. Just wow.

    "Loved the book; not so much the narrator"
    Would you listen to Try again? Why?

    No- I really didn't like the voice of Tate- he sounded like an old man!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes-not to reiterate but the voice of Tate was awful. I almost didn't finish and this is one of my favorite books!

    Story
    "Sex puns and more sex puns"

    It's basically all about sex puns (quite a few awful ones) and innuendos with hot and steamy gay sex scenes. It's a story that gets you off and plays with your fantasies which is great if you badly need one on a lonely Friday night. But if you're finding for something with more depth and background, better look elsewhere. For me, I find myself questioning the main characters' believability - not because of the idea of turning a straight man gay or bi. But because of the way they think, talk and act - it comes off as unnatural, manufactured and incredulous. I can't even make sense of the other people in this story. The entire thing seems to be stuck on the premise of 'getting the straight guy' and never really developing anything else beyond that.

    Story
    "WOW!"
    If you could sum up Try in three words, what would they be?

    *pant* *pant* *pant*


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the story of how Logan convinced Tate to "try" and that neither character is overly whiney.


    What does Shannon Gunn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He really is the voice of Logan, it was great to actually "hear" the character's thoughts and emotions.


    Any additional comments?

    This is my first erotic audio book. There is something about people reading hot steamy sex scenes that just cause me to giggle, and that is so not romantic or erotic. I had this book on Kindle and could not pass up the $2 price to have it in audio as well. Shannon Gunn did an amazing job with Logan's voice. Tate took some getting use to, but eventually it really worked. The book has a good portion of inner dialogue that I thought was clearly portrayed. The only issue I really had with the narration were the chapter breaks. After becoming emotionally invested in an argument or one of the many steamy sexy connections between Logan and Tate, you get this annoying/ cheerful "Chapter 23" message. It was so noticeable that I actually started a list every time it pulled me from the story. (Over half the chapters were listed) The other narration quirk that might grade on your nerves would be the female voices. This story is not too bad (3 minor female roles) but after reading Take and Trust, I'm a little worried. If you have not read Try, here is a small recap. You follow the meeting of Logan ( attorney and all around sex God) and Tate (straight divorcé). Logan, with prey in his sights starts to ensnare Tate and convinces him to "try" something new with Logan. But once Tate has released all inhibitions, Logan is the one tangled in the web of Tate's lust filled eyes and wild curls. The ultimate question is whether they will allow the past to be the past and take the step to be more than just a conquest of fear and desire. If you love sex, and don't mind two awesomely built guys dominating each other against a wall, couch, wall, wall, bed, shower, bed, wall, ect., then this is a book for you!!

    "Sexy Characters - Sexy Story"
    Would you listen to Try again? Why?

    Absolutely - the intensity of these characters was fabulous


    Any additional comments?

    I finally stepped outside my comfort zone to give this book a "try" and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. While I had only read one m/m prior to Try, this book was far superior in intensity, hotness and overall enjoyment.

    The characters were great guys with fabulous chemistry which made them easy to love. It was difficult to watch them both struggle with their insecurities about the feelings they had for one another. But the connection they shared was nothing short of beautiful and I was thrilled with the experience of watching them fall for each other.

    While there were an abundance of memorable moments, I’d like to take a minute to appreciate the EPIC HOTNESS of the phone sex. That scene was EROTIC & UNFORGETABLE. I never knew two men could be such a turn-on, but let’s just say that tumblr is your friend when your imagination is lacking.

    This is book one in the series and the remaining books are currently available. So if you have been looking for your next erotica read, give these boys a try. Tate & Logan will make sure you don’t soon forget them.

    "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!”

    "Good story, shame about the comedy narration"

    This story is super hot and really hits the spot.

    The only fly in the ointment is the narrator. Narrator, Shannon Gunn, must also be movie trailer voice over guy as well because he has just the voice for it. It was way too over the top for this kind of job.

    Also, the way he voices Tate is hilarious and as sexy as my big toe.

    I'll listen to the sequel as I want to know what happens but I won't order any more books narrated by the same person. I can't go through it again!
