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?

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 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!!
Like to read all kinds of books. Some of my go to authors are Elizabeth Hoyt, Joe Abercrombie, Kresley Cole, Sanford and Slaughter.
This book took the plot of "gay man turning straight man gay" and turned it on its ear. The two protags are vividly drawn and lovable. A character driven story that was believable and just refreshing. Worth a credit yes. The narrator made this book. What a bloody great talent and I loved his character voices. I want him on my GPS. I would not mute him or ignore his directions.
I had already read this wonderful book and was captivated by Logan and Tate story. So of course I was skeptical about having it narrated for audio. I should mention that this is my first audio book. So hearing Shannon Gunn's voice tell their story was so much better than what I expected. He killed it and did my men total justice.
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.
I loved this story for one major reason. The two main men started their relationship early in the book and we enjoyed them right away. I hate OTHER BOOKS that half way through the book they are still fighting their attraction and blah blah blah. NOT THIS BOOK. I REALLY ENJOYED these two men.
First let me start off by saying I already loved the book. I'd read it many times before I found the audio. As I love audiobooks, downloading it was a no-brainer. Listening to it was mind-blowing. As for what I loved best? I'm assuming you mean the audio version, and it's the fact that the narrator - Shannon Gunn - gave each character their own voice. I knew when Logan or Tate or Cole was speaking. And he added passion to his voice so you heard the emotion in it. It was like taking the world's most fabulous dessert and adding a fountain of chocolate with it. Seriously scrumptious.
Strangely enough, the two that pop into my head are not M/M nor erotica. Harry Potter and the Outlander series. In each of those, the narrator truly got into the books, the characters, and you felt like you were living the books along with them. It means I will be listening to Try for a long time to come.
Unequivocally I would have to say Logan. I'll admit, at first Tate's voice threw me. It wasn't what I was expecting (though it did grow on me). But Logan? Fit him so incredibly perfectly. I have to say, I'd line up just to hear Logan say a few of those luscious words that pour out of his mouth.
Hmmm, interesting question. I think I'd choose Cole. Logan's brother fascinates me. Too bad he's married *grins*.
Most audio books, unfortunately, are okay but not great. This, however, fits in with the greats. Amazing voice, great emotion, strong characterization. Added to the fact this is a fantastic M/M erotic romance - I'd give it 10 stars if I could.
No- I really didn't like the voice of Tate- he sounded like an old man!
Yes-not to reiterate but the voice of Tate was awful. I almost didn't finish and this is one of my favorite books!
I'm proud of myself for getting this audio, what a smooth and sexy ride it was. Logan and Tate hummmmm this could easily be the classic "gay for him" book but it's a very good story. You will like these guys. As a straight woman (whatever that means) I go to gay listening for a different taste of the relationship pool.
The narrators was so pleasant to listen too, you always knew who was who even with the female voices.Nice work Ella Frank - I am heading to book two.
Lose yourself in Tate and Logan's world. Wonderful audio! Will listen time and time again
"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!
