**Review & Giveaway** TRUST (Temptation #3) by Ella Frank @EllaFrank2012


TRUSTverb: 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…


“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.”



Ella Frank has created a stunningly beautiful series with Logan and Tate, their journey to Trust has been one of the best series I have read all year.  I read Try back in 2014 (and it was one of my Top 20 of 2014) and then I waited to read Take until I knew I could read Trust right after.  While it was hard to wait that long to dive back into the world of Logan and Tate, getting to read Take and Trust back to back was a fantastic experience.  Ella Frank was a new to me Author when I picked up Try, and now she is on my "must-read-all-books" fangirl list.  Trust is the third (and I hope not final) book in the Temptation series and MUST be read in order, as the books are a continuous story.

The Temptation series really touched my heart and resonated within me.  The emotions that Ella Frank was able to bring out in me was crazy, she has wowed me with her writing and continues to surprise me with the strength of feelings she can put in her books.  I was (still am) connected to these characters and I hurt when they hurt, cried with them and felt their intense connection throughout this series.  Logan and Tate are two characters that will stay with me for years to come.  I can't recommend this series enough!

Since Trust is the third book in a series that needs to be read in sequential order, I am not going to touch the plot of this last story, you need to go into this blind.  I will say that while Try blew me away, Trust is the best book I have read this year!  You are going to NEED to read this very soon.

Ella Frank not only created a wonderful series, she took the M/M genre to a fantastic place.  While I don't read a lot of this genre, what I do read sometimes doesn't have the thread of "real" that Ella Frank's books have.  Logan and Tate face real life struggles that I am sure MANY people in their situation have to deal with.  I liked the realism that was brought into this series.  While it was heartbreaking to read some of the "realistic" stuff, and I would never wish any couple to have to go through that, it was beautifully handled and written in a way that both enrages you and breaks your heart but ultimately leaves you completely satisfied.  

I can't say enough wonderful things about this series and Trust.  Logan and Tate's story was an emotional and beautiful story that I hope isn't over, but if it is I am satisfied with how is all plays out.  Ella Frank has touched my heart with these books and I hope that when you read these books you see how special this series really is.  Tears, goosebumps, sighs of contentment and crazy HOT connections sums up all the feels I had while reading Trust.  

If you are looking for a new series to dive into I HIGHLY recommend the Temptation series.  If you have been reading Try and Take then Trust is going to already be in your Kindle, but if it is not 1-click and start reading this immediately!  Ella Frank wrapped up Logan and Tate's story beautifully and you MUST read Trust!
