TAKE verb: to reach for and hold in ones hands or get into ones possession, power or control.

Logan Mitchell is a man who
s always been more than happy to take what he wants. Its a philosophy thats 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 tryhes 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 hes never done beforetake 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.
s starting to catch a glimpse of what life with Logan would be like, and its one full of excitement and satisfactiona 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?

To Logan,
Because around you, all I want to do is fall without thought.

I hope you remember what happened in TRY? ☺ If not - read it again!!!! ☺
Logan and Tate were finally together - but they still didn't have a name for whatever they were to each other... Both never had a boyfriend before - Logan, because he only had flings and Tate, well, because he has always only been attracted to women before....
But now they're starting something serious - and serious means meeting each others families and friends...
Which in Logan's case is no problem at all - they all immediately fall in love with Tate.
But Tate's family won't be as easy. They hated it when he divorced their beloved daughter-in-law Diana and now he's dating a guy??? NO WAY!

That's basically what happens in TAKE.
Logan and Tate trying to deal with everything that comes up when you're in a brand new relationship with a guy. Decisions. Family issues. Trust issues. Fear of/for the future etc.

There will be lots of VERY SEXY Scenes ☺☺☺

...sad and moving and frustrating scenes ...

...and lots of talking and being mad/sad/frustrated at each other....


 NOPE..... I'm not telling you ☺

I don't want to spoil anything!!!
(OK, there will be a third book - so there's no HEA yet - and Cliffhanger? Yeah, kinda :( It's not that someone is literally hanging from a cliff - but book #2 kind of ends mid-conversation ☺)

Ugh - we had to wait soooo long to finally read about Tate & Logan again!!

It took me 3 days to read it - I could've read it in one night, but I wanted to make it last longer!!!!!

 Logan & Tate's story is sooo amazing! So romantic and adorable and sweet and frustrating and heartbreaking and moving and sad and most importantly
☺ EFFING EROTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Phew!!! I still need hourly ice-creams to keep my body temp down!!!☺☺☺

Just like book 1 - book 2 does not disappoint.
In book 1 we had this funny side of Logan trying to get into Tate's pants...that's a bit missing here - there are funny moments, but it's more about finding their way, now that they're a couple. And facing all the problems that come up when you're suddenly gay....
Ugh, I hated Tate's family!!! No sympathy at all for them!
I kinda thought people these days were more open for anything gay! But Tate's mom probably didn't get the memo! So sad!

Well - if you loved book 1 - like I know you did - you will definitely love this second one too.

TAKE: Book #2 in the most perfect m/m Romance Trilogy ever! You think you know what Erotic Romances are because you've read Fifty Shades of Grey? Think again!
P.S. - no offense FSOG - I still love you Christian!!!! ☺

now please hurry with book #3 Ms Frank!!!!

ARC received for an honest review

It has been a while waiting for Take, and for me it was a very impatient wait!  From the minute I first read Try (the first time!) I knew I just had to get my hands on Take ASAP.

Ms Frank, you have definitely not disappointed me.

You will need to have read Try first, as Take starts up where Try finishes (and besides, who would want to miss a minute of Logan and Tate by not reading it).

Where do I start with Take?  Well, I just have to say that I didn't think I could love Logan and Tate any more than I did in Try.... until now!
Where Try was a bit more lighthearted as Logan tried to get into Tate's pants, and Tate came to terms with his feelings, Take is a bit darker, as Logan and Tate come to terms with their "relationship".    

Logan is all in, his family and friends love him and Tate and accept them for who they are.  I loved his friend's reaction to the way Logan is acting.  There are some truly funny moments with that.

Then there is Tate... his heart knows what it wants - Logan.  But his family - who I can honestly say I don't like one. little. bit - are just horrible.   And don't get me started on the bitch of the ex-wife - remember Diana from Try?  Yeah, she doesn't get any better!
While there are some smoking hot sexy moments between Logan and Tate (did someone turn up the heat??  I think my Kindle was about to combust!!), there are some sweet, tender moments, as well as some flat out sad moments. 

OMG I wanted to slap the crap out of them, and hug them at the same time sometimes.  And they may or may not have made me cry at others, but that cannot be confirmed nor denied!

I am Logan and Tate's biggest cheerleaders, they just have to get their shit together, don't you think?

So, do things end on a happy note for our sexy duo?

Uh uh, you are going to have to read for yourself.

Now I am impatiently waiting for the 3rd book to come out **taps toes** I'm looking at you Ms Frank!

Oh... and sorry (not sorry) for all the gifs... but really, is there anything sexier than two guys kissing?

So for now, Logan and Tate send their love

I am first and foremost a proud Australian, but currently reside in Texas with my husband.

I love to read and write contemporary and erotic romances, but I also like to step outside of the box at times when it comes to telling a story that really speaks to me.

I absolutely adore dessert. I could skip the main meal and head straight to the dessert line every time…especially anything that is covered in caramel.

I am a GLEEK (yes I admit it… So? It makes me happy), on the other hand I love Dexter and he makes me happy too, so analyze that!

I love to sing really bad at the top of my lungs, and I often have conversations with myself. 

Some of my favorite authors include; JR Ward, Tiffany Reisz, Nalini Singh, Lori Foster, Lauren Dane, SJ Frost and many more.
