Tease (Temptation #4) by Ella Frank
Four years ago I met a man
who forever changed my life.
He dared me to try.
I dared him to love.
And while that’s where our story began, it’s certainly not where it ended.

Omggggggg how I've missed these two men. I mean, they will always be one of my favorite couples in ALL of the romance genres, but revisiting them again after all this time was the best gift EVER!! I read EVERY word, no skimming because WHO WOULD DO THAT?! Like seriously, if you don't soak up every word of this book, I question your sanity because hello, it's Logan and Tate!
We started this journey with Logan and Tate four years ago, when they first crossed paths and broke through barriers to start a beautiful journey together, I also joined on this journey with them as a reader. So it's kind of crazy that Tease takes place literally four years after the first book was released.
With both Logan and Tate's careers at their peak, they're feeling pulled too much in the wrong direction. Realizing how hard it is to make their relationship a priority, they make strides to rectify this immediately! It's hilarious how after all this time that Logan is still surprised at the fact that Tate knows him so well, like he's shocked that he's still in a committed relationship. His insecurities still linger just below the surface and Tate handles him SO well. They really are perfect for each other, like when bossy Tate comes out it makes Logan crazy(in the best way!) and I just ADORE how balanced they make each other!
Omg can this woman write a sex scene or what?! Talk about the best slow burning, sensual, sexy as hell, hot and bothered thing you will read between two people! The pure carnal desire that these two have for each other is like some sublime force that will never die and never get old. Never. Ever. Tate with his silky curls and Logan and his smart mouth, and their sexy banter filled with sexual innuendos and puns. NEVER. GETS. OLD.
All of the characters you know and love are back, along with some we don't love so much, and some newbies too! We get to really see who they are today and how they've grown and evolved, and how that intertwines with Logan and Tate's life present day. One of these moments was extremely emotional for me and that just proves what the power of a fictional story can do for a very real life, I was surprisingly moved by a certain scene and I found it to be very therapeutic for me personally. And I think with this book specifically, that will happen for a lot of readers for several different reasons. That's why I love books so much, because reconnecting with these characters feels just like coming home.
When Ella Frank announced that we were getting THREE more books in the Temptation series, I just about had a heart attack, and I cried tears of joy, like legitimate tears running down my face. Tease was done SO well, and in my opinion, was a great beginning of a continuation-story that promises to be a great ride! I'm beyond excited to see what the next book in the series has to offer us lucky readers. So thank you Ella, for taking me back to my happy place with Logan and Tate, it was such a warm comfy place to be (and totally hot too). True fans of these guys will absolutely devour this book, and you should because it's AMAZING and wonderful and ALL the adjectives.
I will never forget when my best friend told me I needed to TRY, a new book she loved. That book happened to be the first in the series. My FIRST M/M. It changed EVERYTHING for me. I saw love in a way I never thought possible. I had no idea that love existed so deeply. I learned that love was hard, never easy, but it also was the best risk in life. No matter the circumstances. Logan and Tate? They have remained with me. YEARS later. I’ve never forgotten them. Never wanted to. Never could. So this continuation? This book? This series? It felt like home.
“I love you so damn much. I can’t believe there was ever a time when I didn’t.”
The story takes place four years after the last book, Trust. Logan and Tate are now an established couple. A couple that have been through trials and tribulations. They’ve faced adversity and heartbreak in every sense of the word. But those barriers made their love stronger. Their challenges were nothing short of a testament to the depth of their love and devotion to each other. At this time, they are both at the height of their careers. Busy with little to no time for each other, they do not want to get into this kind of routine. So they make time for each other…in the way they know how.
“Where else would I be? You’re where my heart is. So that’s where I stay.”
I was absolutely captivated by this book. I never wanted to put it down. Just when you think their story is over, this book comes along and simply astounds you with the depth of reverence that exists between these two. Their story is far from over. So much more is to come. As we are caught up on the lives of Logan and Tate, there are some characters I won’t mention that we also get updates on. I cannot simply tell you about this story. It’s one that must be experienced first hand. I love that the author does not bring up unnecessary drama. The story flows effortlessly.
“And just so we’re clear, we’re not talking about you on your knees worshipping me until I shout, ‘Oh my God’.Are we?”
I’ve said this before, but seriously? Miss Ella Frank you SLAY me with your words. Your talent to execute a passionate, heartfelt, yet intense story is simply unmatched. Can never be duplicated. I am forever in awe of your innate ability to write love in its most raw yet purest form. Logan and Tate have never been steamier. And you know just how HOT these boys are. The author stays true to this. Their love and adoration takes them to a whole different level in their most intimate moments. But nothing is perfect in love. Insecurities are explored and addressed. But their love? It’s never questioned.
“Forever’s a long time.”
“What? Worried you couldn’t put up with me for that long?”
“No. I’m worried it won’t be long enough.”
Will there seriously be enough words for me to truly make clear just how much I loved this book?! Tease was simply EVERYTHING. Logan and Tate, I’ve missed them so much. Their love is inspirational. It reminds you to love loudly. Deeply. Without regard. I love that the author is allowing us to reconnect with these two again. Stimulating and erotic, the continuation of this series is everything your heart could ever dream of. I cannot adequately describe my excitement for what’s to come. Well done, Ella!
“Hello, counselor. How’d the big case go today?”
Tate had been eyeing the clock all afternoon waiting to hear the outcome of the Berivax trial, and while he was happy it was finally going to be over, he also hoped all of Logan’s hard work had paid off.
“When was the last time we had sex?” Logan’s question was so blunt and unexpected it had Tate stumbling over his response for a second, and when he didn’t answer, Logan continued, “You don’t know, do you?”
The side of Tate’s mouth twitched at Logan’s disgusted tone. “Well, to be fair, you caught me off guard. I had to think for a minute.”
“And now that you’ve had time to think?”
“Oh my God. You can’t remember,” Logan said, and Tate couldn’t stop his laugh then. “That’s fucking shameful.”
“We’ve just been—”
“Don’t say it—”
“—busy.” Tate headed over to the door that separated the bar from the tiny foyer and stairwell that went up to their loft, shut it behind himself, and took a seat on one of the steps. “Well, we have been. This case of yours has taken up most of your time, and with the bar hours we just got…busy.”
“Yeah? Well, that shit needs to stop. Right now.”
Tate leaned his shoulder against the wall and shut his eyes, picturing Logan with his jet-black hair, those piercing blue eyes, and that full, sensual mouth. Tate had barely had time to say goodbye to him this morning, and no matter how much he was laughing it off, Logan was right—this not seeing one another was bullshit. They needed to sit down and work something out, now that Logan’s schedule would be returning to something more manageable.
“Agreed,” Tate said. “Something needs to change.”
“Good. How about we discuss it at dinner?”
Tate winced. “I’m here until one.”
“Can’t you beg Amelia to stay and come meet me?” Logan asked, and if he hadn’t sounded quite so desperate, Tate might not have caved.
“What am I going to get if I come to you?”
Logan’s voice lowered to a tone that never failed to make Tate hard. “Me. All night. And maybe again in the morning. I’m in a giving kind of mood.”
Tate swallowed and stretched his legs out in front of himself, suddenly needing a little more room in his jeans. “All night, huh? It’s been a while since that happened.”
“It has. So come find me and I’ll rectify that little issue you’re having with remembering our weekend away at the cabin. That was the last time my cock was inside you.”
“Jesus, Logan.” Tate pressed a palm to his erection, recalling the weekend trip they’d made around three weeks ago. Or maybe it was four. Shit, okay. They did need to work something out if he was having trouble remembering that. “Let me get things settled here and I’ll be at your office in”—he checked his watch—“an hour? Hour and a half?”
“Perfect,” Logan said. “I’ll be waiting.”
