William Tate Morrison – The man who came into my life and turned my entire world—and me—on its ass.

Logan Mitchell has always been a man with a plan.
One for work. One for his relationship. And one for his life. Which is exactly the way he liked it—until recently.
Now with words like marriage and weddings floating around his head, Logan’s plans have suddenly changed course, and where they want him to go has him feeling somewhat distracted.

Tate Morrison knows Logan better than anybody else—or so he thinks. So when his lawyer is finding it hard to sleep at night, he chalks it up to the craziness that has recently descended on their lives.
Never in a million years would he guess what’s really on Logan’s mind.

Tate is the fifth book in the Temptation Series, and the next chapter in the lives of the two men we have all come to know and love.

And AGAIN, Ella Frank Makes Me Wish I Was Gay


Don’t look so scandalized people, it’s true. It’s also a regular occurrence when I read these books. It happens every time Logan and Tate have sex. Don’t worry! I’m not going to do anything drastic like schedule a reassignment surgery … yet. I really am just kidding on that little bit, but sheee-it! Can you blame me for the thought crossing my mind? Seriously. Is there one thing about those two getting it on that’s not fucking fantastic? Pun intended.

Logan and Tate

I was fangirl-waiting for this book and it didn’t disappoint. None of the books in the Temptations series ever have, at least not until the sad moment where they run out of words for me to read. That, ‘The End’ feeling always sucks. It takes a minute to get over the gut punch, but knowing when the next book is coming helps a little. January can’t get here soon enough.

I can never decide which of these two characters I love more. One minute it’s Tate, and then it’s Logan, and then it’s Tate again … and on and on. I realize today it doesn’t matter because they both deserve it. These guys love fiercely, they love completely, they love when broken, when afraid, and when things are joyful or shitty, and they do it balls-to-the-wall unconditionally. Balls up against the wall, and on the floor, and on the desk, and in the shower, from pillars to posts … Mmmmm.

There were a couple of capital Oh Fuck Moments in this book, I mean, gimme a freaking heart attack why don’tcha?! I almost cried a couple of times until I realized that Ella was not going to start letting us down now. Thank the book gods, I was right. I challenge people to find a single thing—just one damn thing—not to love about this book. Good luck. You’ll need it ‘cuz … It. Ain’t. Gonna. Happen.

Tate and Logan continue to grow both separately and together. When problems arise, they face them head on. Their relationships, both with each other and with friends, family, and peripherals continue to adapt and progress. Priest and Robbie are too fucking funny for words. The timeframe always works, the pacing is great, the flow is spectacular, the sex is beyond scorchin’ and everything always, always makes perfect sense at the end of the day.

Again, January can’t get here soon enough. This is a no-brain(er) recommendation, as in, if you don’t read this book you must not have a brain.

  • Great review and I agree almost with everything you said. 😉 I LOVE Logan and Tate – they are my comfort read, books to get me out of funk or when I just wanna read about two people falling in love. 🙂 But when my heart broke and I cried after the big Oh Fuck Moment there never was a real comfort/healing part. Maybe they did not really need to deal with the hurt, but I never got my comfort after the emotional rollercoaster. And that’s the one thing I did not love about this book. 🙁

    • I think the end was the comfort moment. Maybe we’ll get the rest of that in book 6. I expect a Freak Out Moment or two lol. Thx for the comment. Glad you liked the review.


Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
