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.
“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?”
“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.
“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.”
OMG! —Awesome! Fantastic! – and smoldering HOT!
Tease, the next book in Ella Frank's Temptation series is exactly what happens for us readers, bringing us back into Logan and Tate’s world and it was magnificent. It’s basically drama free and I was so good with that. We are reconnecting, catching up, seeing where they’ve been and how they’ve grown in their relationship and I loved it.
It’s been four years and while their friends are becoming domesticated, settled, and eeek…married, Tate and Logan are still completely consumed and head over heels—in love—and exploring each other.
They both are working long hours, they both have thriving businesses that require their time and attention and that’s when they realize they need to put on the brakes and reconnect.
I love the small and infrequent moments of Logan’s insecurities when he still doubts the depth, or sincerity, of Tate’s love. I love that Tate knows every-single-time Logan has those doubts and puts them to rest. . . immediately. I love the confidence Tate has found within himself over these past four years, but more so, in their relationship.
They prove over and over to each other—their commitment and the strength of their bond—and they never hesitate to let anyone know—family, friend, or stranger—that their love will not be broken or penetrated.
Tease takes us on a journey, of sorts, refreshing our memories of situations that took place over the years as Logan and Tate have solidified their relationship and now, as they stand together, stronger than ever, it’s time to put some of those bad memories to rest. Either forgive or forget.
We meet new friends who are sure to liven up the place, and old ones come back that—in time—I have a feeling will have a story to tell, and I’m excited to see where their place will be in the Temptation world.
Tease was everything I had hoped and more. It reminded me of why I love Logan and Tate so much, and if possible, why I love them even more... now. They are amazing together, their chemistry—in and out of the bedroom—is sizzling and toe-curling and they can’t be in the same space without touching, kissing or winking at each other leaving no question to those in their space that these two are a match made in heaven.
And speaking of heaven—Whoa! Hilarious!! Take me church scenes are priceless and I’m not going to spoil it. I laughed so hard and, at the same time, fell head over heels in love with these two more than ever.
Too many awesome things happen here from Logan being his bad-ass, yet charming and sexy self, to Tate being sweet and thoughtful—but don’t let that fool ya—cause he’s one hot, smoldering and unbelievably kinky man who loves to get down and dirty with his man, and then to being amazing uncles.
Read it! You won’t regret it!!
