“I love you so damn much. I can’t believe there was ever a time when I didn’t.”

Logan and Tate are one of my favourite M/M couples so when Ella Frank announced that she would be revisiting them I was over the moon. Such is the bond that I have with these characters that I then began to doubt whether this was a good idea or not because what would happen if it all went tits up and destroyed everything before it? I was hesitant to read because I didn’t want those memories tainted but then when the book appeared on my kindle I was like, hell, I cannot not read this, so in I went…and I needn’t have worried, reading Tease was like coming home.

“There’s only one thing I regret. And that’s that I didn’t meet you sooner.”

Tease picks up with the guys four years on, both settled in themselves and in their jobs. Their respective successes though means that these two are spending less and less time together and this is a situation that needed to be remedied stat.

“This was what they’d both needed. What they’d both craved. And the furious way they moved atop their bed was a testament to the fact that while they may have both been busy these past few months, weeks, and days, never had their attraction subsided. Never had their love.”

Logan had really matured in this book, yes, he was still cocky and arrogant but that is…Logan, but in so far as his relationship with Tate he was the one that had the insecurities and that was a huge turnaround. Such is the love that he has for Tate his biggest fear is losing the one man that he loves more than himself and this side of Logan made me extremely emotional. But, I was glad we saw his vulnerable side, it made him more human and if possible, even more real.

“Oh, don’t worry, Tate can’t get pregnant. We don’t need to use protection.”

Tate was adorable as ever but his family is the one thread of storyline that was never truly resolved in books one to three. I was glad that Ella Frank revisited this and while things are definitely not settled it was great to see roads taken to pave the way.

“I thought about you even before you touched me, and considering I was adamantly straight, I’d say that’s one hell of a presence.”

Ella Frank is the queen of steam and these two men, well, let’s just say that side of their relationship is doing just FINE!! Seriously though, my kindle definitely needed freezer time with this book and their interaction between the sheets just brought back how natural these two were together. These two are effortless, their love for one and other radiated from the pages and their intense sexual chemistry was once again, seriously off the charts.

“Forever’s a long time.”
“What? Worried you couldn’t put up with me for that long?”
“No…I’m worried it won’t be long enough.”

It was great to catch up with Cole too and especially one other character that has appeared before. I am hoping that Ella Frank will regale us with his own book. My only complaint with this book and I cannot believe I am going to say it was that I wanted more meat and substance. While I hate angst for angst sake I just think this needed a little something extra. For me, this book was all heat when at times I needed a little meat. However, that did not deter from my enjoyment of this book. As I said above, this was like coming home with two characters that bore themselves deeply into my heart and soul. They be older, a little wiser, but these two have not lost that spark and after the ending of Tease…I am salivating for the next one.


“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.”
