REVIEW: Tease by Ella Frank


"The Temptation Series by Ella Frank was proof that if we open our minds and our hearts to love without boundaries, the result is nothing less than extraordinary."

-- Audrey Carlan, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author



Shel: First,  I should mention that you should definitely read the first three books in this series to fully appreciate what Tease shows us with Logan and Tate otherwise, you'll enjoy this novel but I think it won't mean as much. Let me explain why: 

Shel: In Tease we get to see Logan and Tate 4 years after they've achieved a happy ending--an ending we'd been hoping for after the many heartbreaks they had to endure in the first three novels in the series. Now, 4 years later, we get to see that they've had time to really know each other and fall more deeply in love. We get to see what normal is for them--and laugh as Logan works through the idea of normal means to him, once he gets over the idea of being normal, lol. Tease shows us the evolution of these characters and is setting us up for what I believe will be a few more internal (and possibly external) struggles before they find their next new normal. I say that because in Tease there were plenty of hints at what direction Ella Frank could go in but she chose to let those hints stay in the background so that we could really just sit back and enjoy the relationship Tate and Logan have developed. These two are playful and sexy and fun. They know how to push each other's buttons and support each other --they're the epitome of "team". They're what I think happy couples want to be--loving and supportive and thoughtful and kind. Court: What I loved the best though was that these characters are loved, and fan favorites...obviously....but that there is so much story to tell in a way that is true to them. When I heard we were reading this I was ecstatic, and now...just so happy to have been invited back into this world that Ella has given us. It is a beautiful place...and Cole. Shelley....COLE!!! GAH! So happy for what we've been given, and, beautiful banter between the two really makes them developed and deep characters that really makes our reading experience one of the best ever. 

Shel: I think readers of this series will enjoy this fun emergence into the lives of Logan and Tate and, like me, wonder what Ella Frank has up her sleeve when it comes to the next two books in this series. With the reintroduction of characters from other books and possible major conflicts ahead, I love that we got this happy and more settled and completely in love with each other Logan and Tate to use as a basis for what's to come. Court: Right? Or, it is a precursor to lull us into a false sense of security before she rips our hopes and dreams into tiny little pieces...? HAHA! Okay, so maybe I'm having a flashback to the absolute beauty that is Blind Obsession but you get what I am saying. Even if that turns out to be true, we will love every single second and you should get this series...and the first books all the way back to Exquisite because every word Ella writes is worth it! 

Tease, the sexy new installment in The Temptation Series by Ella Frank is available now!!!

Tease (Temptation #4) by Ella Frank

Four years ago I met a man
who forever changed my life.
He dared me to try.
I dared him to love.
And while that’s where our story began, it’s certainly not where it ended.
-Tate Morrison


“Hello, counselor. How’d the big case go today?” Tate had been eyeing the clock all afternoon waiting to hear the outcome of the Berivax trial, and while he was happy it was finally going to be over, he also hoped all of Logan’s hard work had paid off. “When was the last time we had sex?” Logan’s question was so blunt and unexpected it had Tate stumbling over his response for a second, and when he didn’t answer, Logan continued, “You don’t know, do you?” The side of Tate’s mouth twitched at Logan’s disgusted tone. “Well, to be fair, you caught me off guard. I had to think for a minute.” “And now that you’ve had time to think?” “Umm…” “Oh my God. You can’t remember,” Logan said, and Tate couldn’t stop his laugh then. “That’s fucking shameful.” “We’ve just been—” “Don’t say it—” “—busy.” Tate headed over to the door that separated the bar from the tiny foyer and stairwell that went up to their loft, shut it behind himself, and took a seat on one of the steps. “Well, we have been. This case of yours has taken up most of your time, and with the bar hours we just got…busy.” “Yeah? Well, that shit needs to stop. Right now.” Tate leaned his shoulder against the wall and shut his eyes, picturing Logan with his jet-black hair, those piercing blue eyes, and that full, sensual mouth. Tate had barely had time to say goodbye to him this morning, and no matter how much he was laughing it off, Logan was right—this not seeing one another was bullshit. They needed to sit down and work something out, now that Logan’s schedule would be returning to something more manageable. “Agreed,” Tate said. “Something needs to change.” “Good. How about we discuss it at dinner?” Tate winced. “I’m here until one.” “Can’t you beg Amelia to stay and come meet me?” Logan asked, and if he hadn’t sounded quite so desperate, Tate might not have caved. “Depends.” “On?” “What am I going to get if I come to you?” Logan’s voice lowered to a tone that never failed to make Tate hard. “Me. All night. And maybe again in the morning. I’m in a giving kind of mood.” Tate swallowed and stretched his legs out in front of himself, suddenly needing a little more room in his jeans. “All night, huh? It’s been a while since that happened.” “It has. So come find me and I’ll rectify that little issue you’re having with remembering our weekend away at the cabin. That was the last time my cock was inside you.” “Jesus, Logan.” Tate pressed a palm to his erection, recalling the weekend trip they’d made around three weeks ago. Or maybe it was four. Shit, okay. They did need to work something out if he was having trouble remembering that. “Let me get things settled here and I’ll be at your office in”—he checked his watch—“an hour? Hour and a half?” “Perfect,” Logan said. “I’ll be waiting.” Tease-AN
