– verb: to believe in the reliability, truth, or strength of another.
Up until now, Logan Mitchell has never had much of a reason to trust anyone.Having struggled with a self-identity crisis throughout college, he’s spent the years since then creating a sophisticated facade to present to the world.It’s an armor he thought was impenetrable—until he met Tate Morrison.The gorgeous, headstrong bartender he’d sat across from only months ago has taken a tight hold of his heart, and Logan is discovering that it’s time to let go. It’s time to let someone inside.
After years of placing his dreams on hold for his family, Tate has finally chosen to do what makes him happy and follow his heart. The one thing he never would’ve imagined was that it would lead him into the arms of a man—and not just any man—the striking, never-takes-no-for-an-answer Logan Mitchell.Tate has fallen hard, and as his world is turned on its axis and they move forward together, he finds his life becoming more entwined with the confident, successful lawyer.
Even though neither man expected the other, it’s time to trust in their relationship—but not everything comes so easily…

The Temptation Series is wrapped up with Ella Frank’s final installment, Trust. We were left with a bit of a shocking end to Take and we were dying to see how everything was going to play out.  We are not going to tell you about the story. The blurb speaks for itself. What we will tell you all about is the feels. And there were a lot of feels.


Wil: All the FEELS!!!!! This series was so good and so hot! Loved Logan and Tate and their love story. This series was just epic, an absolute favorite. Would’ve loved an epilogue though.


“His motto of “try, take, and top” had changed. Oh, he’d tried Tate all right, and they’d both done a helluva lot of taking, but for once in his life, Logan didn’t feel the desire to win. He didn’t need to come out on top. What he wanted was Tate’s trust—his absolute trust.”


Christina: I devoured this book! I could not read it fast enough. This book made the trilogy complete. I would have loved an epilogue from the future, but it did wrap up nicely with a pretty sexy bow on it. Tate and Logan are perfect for each other and I loved their progress, accomplishments, and love in this book.

I have a serious book hangover right now. It makes me sad that Tate Morrison isn’t real. I just want to look at Tate, looking at Logan. These books were so intense and so sexy that I had to keep taking breaks to cool off, lol. I know that I will visit Tate and Logan again in the future!


“No,” Logan finally said, and Tate felt his heart sink. “I’ll never see you that way again. Because before this, I didn’t know you were essential for me to feel alive.”


Angie: WOW! I have to say that this series, and this book especially, has had me sitting on the edge of my seat and has definitely been a page turner for me! I was so sucked into this story by the time I got to book 3 I found myself shutting out the “real” world just so I could read. In this book the name says it all. Tate needs to trust in his decisions and in Logan and their relationship and Logan needs to trust in Tate and in their relationship, and coming from a man that has never had an actual relationship nor has he ever believed in them. The twists and turns are mind-blowing. There were a couple twists that she put in the book that I did not see coming but I have to say they certainly made the story! I definitely recommend this series to anyone that like a great love story that is packed full of laughter, tears and smoking hot sex! I most definitely WILL read more by this author!


“I love you,” he said, and as Logan looked at him, he reached for his hands. “I had no idea when you first sat down across from me that night—no idea what I’d been missing,” Tate whispered. “It was you.”     




“What’s wrong with my hair? Are you saying I need to cut it?”

“No, I’m fucking not,” Logan said as he fingered the curls by Tate’s ear. “And you know it.”

“What would you do if I did shave my head?”

“Kill you? And likely get away with it since I have connections to a very reputable law firm.”

Tate chuckled and shoved Logan until he was on his back beside him. “Be serious.”

Logan turned his head on the pillow and ran his eyes over Tate’s full head of hair. Then he returned his gaze to the eyes watching him. “I would quite
possibly cry. For days.”

“Over my hair? It does grow back, you know.”

“Yeah, but not for months,” he grumbled. “Can you please stop talking so calmly about this? You’re making me nervous.”

Tate shifted until his long, lean body was stretched out above him, and Logan widened his legs to allow him to settle in between.

“Don’t worry,” Tate assured him as he lowered his head to kiss the corner of his mouth. He then moved those teasing lips to Logan’s ear and whispered, “I
like your hands in it too much to cut it off.”

Logan threaded his fingers through the thick waves and asked, “Like this?”

With a groan, Tate rocked his hips against him, and Logan twisted his fingers tighter.

Exactly like that.”

“Good,” he said as he wound his legs around Tate’s. “Because this way, I can have a tight hold on you when you’re trying to distract me. I’m onto
you, Mr. Morrison. Don’t try to use your body against me.”

He almost lost his willpower when Tate, the cocky fucker, placed his hands on either side of his head and rubbed their erections together.

“You don’t want me to use my body on you?”

“Fuck you,” Logan said, knowing full well that, if he didn’t change the subject or get Tate the hell off him, he was going to roll him over and cease
talking altogether.

Usually he’d love nothing more, but right now, he wanted to know why Tate had reacted so strongly to his question from last night—well, early morning .

“We need to talk.”
