Trust (Temptation #3) by Ella Frank

Trust Disclaimer MaleTAG

TRUST – 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… addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16 A-nony-mouseTAG

Trust is the third book in the Temptation series. You should read Try and Take before you take on Trust.

As many other Logan and Tate fans, I’ve been waiting impatiently for the third book in the Temptation series to arrive. When it did, I hopped and downloaded it so fast, along with thousands of other people, that I think we made Amazon’s head swim.

There are three things I would like to discuss in reverse order – the story, the returns, the plot holes, and the mistakes.

First off, the mistakes – there was, unfortunately, a tremendous amount of head hopping. In Logan’s POV, suddenly it would sound like Tate’s and vice versa. Plus, there were several sentences where ‘he’ was used four or five times until I had no idea which ‘he’ she was referring to.

Second, plot holes – What happened with Chris? Still not sure. What’s going to happen with Tate’s dad & Family? Not sure, though at least things are looking up on one side of that.

Third, the returns – it was so wonderful what Ella did with popping in characters like Robbie and Daniel—now that one made me laugh—out of the blue. Also, what she did with Diana was a very nice way to end that part of the plot. And I loved the interplay between Logan and his PA. It’s those little things that truly round out a book.

Fourth, the story, and why the first two points DON’T MATTER – OMG, where do I start? We have watched Logan and Tate go from adversaries to lovers to boyfriends. In this installment, we see their status go far beyond that. I don’t want to blow the story, but have a hanky by when you read it. The author handles a very distressing scene really well and that short scene shows more of Logan’s depth than had ever been done before. Tate grows beyond what we’ve seen. Their relationship has gotten to the part where they are solid. It’s just the outside influences which cause problems until you do wonder if they will get their HEA or if fate just won’t let it happen.

While I’m glad Ms. Frank chose to end the series, as sometimes series go on too long and I think it’s good to end it so perfectly, I so don’t want to say goodbye to Logan, Cole, or Tate. I truly don’t. I’m going to be re-reading and re-listening to this series for years to come to gain more time with these three men. And maybe she can pick up stories about Daniel and or Robbie and or…well, she knows the wonderful men she has at her disposal.

Thanks, Ella Frank, for giving us such a wonderful, hot, sweet, romantic, intense love story as that of Logan and Tate. Much appreciated.fourstars Purchase LinksTAG
