Series Temptation #1

 ~ ~ ~ 

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 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.
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.
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.
Tate Morrison - Once he decides to turn the tables on Logan, whew, it gets hot. 


Logan is a sexy sex machine and is out to have it all. He does women, he does men and he does women and men. He likes the game, but when he sets his sights on

The Blurb:

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?

Tate, the sexy bartender, there’s no stopping him. If Tate had just said “yes” from the get go the story would’ve been over. But no, Tate is straight and doesn’t that make the game more fun for Logan? Tate is a natural tease and that just leads to chapters of flirtatious flirting and flirtiness. I think Tate just can’t help himself. 



Sexy, dirty, vivid details. Yup, it’s all here. You get to ALL the bases and then some. It's almost written in stages of how to initiate the new guy.


Not so much. It’s just two guys attracted to each other and then doin’ it. I don’t know why they think they have an emotional connection. There was so much sex time on the page that there wasn’t any time to develop a relationship. Wait, what? 350 some pages and there wasn’t time for relationship building? Hm. Well, when you figure it out, let me know. There were a few attempts to make a bond between these two guys, but it just didn’t go anywhere. I realize this is a series, and I suppose there’s more to come on that front, but I don’t know if what I’ve read so far is enough to keep me around for book 2. 

Listen, if you want a hot, sexy romp with every erotic detail s.p.e.l.l.e.d. out for you then this is your book. If you’re looking for a male male romance, keep looking.
