Tease – verb: to tantalize especially by arousing desire or curiosity often without intending to satisfy it….unless your name is Tate Morrison.

It’s been four years since Logan Mitchell walked into Tate’s life and irrevocably changed it. Four years since the sexy as sin lawyer dared him to try, and four years since Tate won his love.

Now, as they approach the next chapter of their lives Logan is determined they won’t end up like many of their friends. Settled. Domestic. Boring. However, that’s easier said than done. With busy careers and working odd hours, finding time for one another is becoming increasingly difficult.

But that sh*t isn’t going to fly with Logan or Tate.

The two of them are determined to compromise to get what it is they want, and what they want is each other.

Tease is the sexy, tantalizing continuation of the two men who stole your heart… and popped your cherry.

This book makes me sad. Just like for many Logan and Tate are one of my favorite couples. I loved Try and Take and as for Trust that was just ok for me. The story had kind of petered out by the time book 3 came out. That should’ve given an indication that Tease wasn’t for me but because I do love these guys, and I was interested to see what the author would do with their story I gave it a shot.

What did I think? That it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great. It was just ok. It takes place 4 years after Trust and there wasn’t much going on, to be honest- besides work. I understand not wanting to add contrived drama, but there has to be something new happening. This was basically rehashing some stuff, catching up with past characters, and sex- lots of sex. Not even the sex was enough to keep me captivated. They were basically just living there lives. And the end, we’re kind of just left there. **For peace of mind to future readers: this doesn’t end in a cliffhanger, it leaves it open for more story. I did appreciate that.**

This will likely be my last Logan and Tate book. They will always hold a special place in my heart, but you have to know when to quit. I’ll take the great memories from books 1 and 2 and look forward to other story-lines from Ms. Frank. I will say, I’m sure I’ll be the minority and know fans of the series will love this addition to the Temptation Series. 3 Stars
