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?

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.
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.
It couldn't possibly be anything but TRY
can't wait to hear TAKE!!
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!
I am addicted to J. Frost the most. Illiona Andrews, Jaqueline Frank.
I loved the trueness of the story. The giving in and trying something because it feelt good and made them happy. Both trying something new.
The scene when Tate sees Logan telling his coworker to stay away from Tate. Tate thought he was hitting on her. The end result of Logan getting his attention was memorable.
I love, love, love, Shannon Gunn's voice and narration. I didn't care much for male narrators before him. He hits the additudes and emotions wonderfully.
Logan's hardest challenge. Haha
I love this book and the narration is perfect. You feel as you are right in the middle of it all. Not just a narration. He hits it all perfectly. The story is great. Can not wait for take to be out on Audible. This bok is SO NOT ONE TO MISS OUT ON. Well worth a credit or a purchase.
Sex. Angry. Sex.
Uh, probably Logan. I love Tate but Logan is my homeboy. He is completely uninhibited and almost nothing fazes him. Also, he has an interesting way of dealing with Tate's reservations.
Sadly, no. He did a good job, although I really hate how he states the chapters like a robot. It's a little strange.
The only reason I didn't give the story five stars is because it actually had too much sex for me, which is shocking. I never thought I would say those words. However, I found myself wishing there was a bit more plot and less angry sex. I say this, but I apparently liked it so much that I immediately read the second book, and am sad that there is no audiobook for that one. The second book had a better sex/plot ratio and really cemented Tate and Logan as an awesome power couple.
The plot, the characters, the love scenes (kowabunga), and the narration.
Without a doubt, the two main characters: one of whom is a drop-dead gorgeous and "out" lawyer/partner of a prestigious firm, and the other a "straight," drop-dead gorgeous bartender wrestling with his deeply closeted homosexuality. (Contrary to some beliefs, you do not get up one morning and decide you're switching teams.) And the erotica will have you fanning yourself or spanking something...
Both the main characters.
Again, the two MCs. Their dialogues, anger, arrogance, frustrations and the love that slowly grabs both of them by their balls makes this a memorable listen.
Of course Logan... he is funny, uninhibited and above all unrestricted. He went for what he wanted relentlessly, poor Tate had no chance....gay or straight.
Overall his narration was OK; however, his crescendo leading to sex scenes is like those you hear from a sports announcer right before a goal is scored. His over excitement while narrating took away from the scene.
I was pleasantly surprised. As a straight female listening to a gay story, I was not sure what to expect. It speaks to the quality of the storyline and genuineness of the characters.
Try is one of my top 10 books of all time.
Tate is my favorite character. He is strong, sexy and honest.
Mr. Gunn's narration was wonderful. His voices were clear, distinctive and in some instances sexy as sin.
Tate is most memorable but Logan was awesome too. Its hard to chose because Ella Frank wrote a fantastic book with two strong, real men.
I do not usually write reviews but I felt complelled to do so because this book was fantastic. I wanted to start re-reading the book as soon as I finished it. If you think you won't like it based on the synopsis I promise you your wrong. It was worth 3 credits!!! Book 2 better come out on audible soon.

My main complaint was the narrator. Just way over the top. His voice for Tate sounded like an old man. Logan's voice was okay. The narration during almost all the sex scenes sounded like a sportscaster on ESPN during a really competitive football game.
The sex scenes were also beyond sexy. Graphic to the point of being gross.
The storyline itself was okay. Maybe this is one of those books that would have been better if I had read the e-book (or if it had a better narrator).
Don't think so.
Sebastian York is my go-to guy. He can read the phone book and make it sound sexy.
My main reaction was frustration because the story had potential, but the narration was just ridiculous.
Even though I know this is a series (and the cover art is very clear that this is part of a series), I still HATE CLIFFHANGERS. Granted, this one was fairly obvious (and you can read the synopsis of the next book on Goodreads), but I still hate cliffhangers. The author could have tied up that last detail in this book, and then end it with some teaser for the ongoing story.Cliffhangers are an attempt to manipulate the reader into buying the next book in the series. If a book is well written and the characters are memorable, cliffhangers aren't necessary in order to sustain your readership.
