This book is an exercise in marathon sex. Sex in incremental intensities and formations and explorations. It’s all about the sex. And damn, the guys are hot, sexy and good at sex. But there isn’t really anything new here. Don’t get me wrong, I mostly enjoyed it even if I didn’t really connect with the characters. I just chalked it up to being an erotic series and figured that’s what I would get. And I did. So, on that note, the book did achieve its goal of being erotica. It's not a romance. Yet. Maybe that will develop as the series progresses.
My problem is that the characters told me they had an emotional connection, but they never showed me. I have no idea why they think they're in love.
It's another book that falls into the insta-love-for-no-reason category.
Logan Mitchell - The definition of player. He’s in it for the chase and conquer. And then he’s out. He’s also kind of a bully.Logan always went after what he wanted though. That was half of his problem. He had no boundaries. […]But wanting this guy? That was a stupid choice in every way.
Tate Morrison - Once he decides to turn the tables on Logan, whew, it gets hot.He made a living off of it. He was always the cat that never caught the mouse, but he sure played with it for a while to make good money. But in the scenario, with this guy, Tate found himself feeling a lot like the mouse – and that pissed him off.
Try – verb: to make an attempt or effort to do something or in this case…someone.
Sex. Logan Mitchell loves it, and ever since he realized his raw sexual appeal at a young age, he has had no problem using it to his advantage. Men and women alike fall into his bed—after all, Logan is not one to discriminate. He lives by one motto—if something interests you, why not just take a chance and try?
And he wants to try Tate Morrison.
Just coming out of a four-year marriage with an ex-wife from hell, a relationship is the last thing on Tate’s mind. He’s starting fresh and trying to get back on his feet with a new job at an upscale bar in downtown Chicago.
The only problem is, Tate has caught the unwavering and unwelcome attention of Mr. Logan Mitchell – a regular at the bar and a man who always gets what he wants.
Night after night Tate fends off the persistent advances of the undeniably charismatic man, but after an explosive moment in the bar, all bets are off as he finds his body stirring with a different desire than his mind.
As arrogance, stubbornness and sexual tension sizzles between the two, it threatens to change the very course of their lives.
Logan doesn’t do relationships. Tate doesn’t do men. But what would happen if they both just gave in and…tried?
