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?

~ My Thoughts ~

I had read a M/M book years ago and while it was an enjoyable story it wasn’t a genre that I returned to. I think the reason behind this was the lack of character development and connection. The story line while good just didn’t suck me in making me want more. So I stepped away from M/M and returned to my favorite genres which are vast.

Last week I bought a book and as I started reading the story kept referring to characters who weren’t actively involved in the story line. So I started to wonder, have I started a series in the middle? What facts am I missing and after talking to a friend I was set straight which led me to Try.

Written with humor, ease, intense sexuality and a story line that kept me curious, I have to say I’m so glad I decided to backtrack and start the series where it first began.

The emotions and confusion these characters go through add such a human element to the story. Their inner battles, their thoughts of right, wrong and public perception are so deep and profound. The additional characters who round out the story are one’s you love, hate and everything in between. The dialogue is great. The push and pull had me angry, laughing and sighing.

A perfectly constructed love story of two men. One who knows what he wants and the other who fights his feelings and desires while trying to make sense of the situation.

I more than enjoyed this story and have already started the second book in the series. I have a feeling that both Logan and Tate will reside in my heart and mind for a long time.
