Story Overview:
TAKE – verb: to reach for and hold in one’s hands or get into one’s possession, power or control. 

Logan Mitchell is a man who’s always been more than happy to take what he wants. It’s a philosophy that’s proven lucrative in both his business and personal life, and never was it more apparent than the night he laid eyes on Tate Morrison. After pulling out all the stops and convincing the sexy bartender to give him a try—he’s hooked. 
Now, Logan finds himself in a predicament that demands more from him than a smart-ass answer and his innate ability to walk away when things get too deep. 
He has a choice to make, and it’ll force him to do something he’s never done before—take a chance.

Tate Morrison knows all about taking a chance. He took the biggest one of his life the night he showed up at Logan’s apartment to explore his unexpected reaction to the man. 
Ever since then, he’s thought about little else.
At first he was convinced his attraction was based solely on his body’s curiosity. But the more time he spends with the silver-tongued lawyer, the more Tate realizes that their physical chemistry is only the beginning. 
He’s starting to catch a glimpse of what life with Logan would be like, and it’s one full of excitement and satisfaction—a far cry from what he had in the past with his soon to be ex-wife.

Each man will face their fears as they begin to understand the true meaning of give and take. Their feelings for one another will be tested, as will their very beliefs. But now that they’ve found love where they least expected it, will they be brave enough to reach out and take it?

My Review:
Overall: 4.25
Performance: 4.25
Story: 4.25

Aww, I'm so loving Tate and Logan and am happy to report that they are in such a good place after this book...that makes me really worried since there are four more books to come...eeps. 

This story was so good, but I understand why Tate was so reluctant to go along with Logan in the beginning. My heart broke for him in this book. He lost so much and that made me a little angry with Logan just because he pushed so freaking hard and cost Tate that. BUT at the same time, I adore them both so much and they are incredible together. I like where they are together in this book overall. Their emotions are getting deeper and they're accepting that this is more than just sex now. That's a beautiful thing to watch. 

I'm so excited that there are six total books to this series. There's nothing better than binging on a truly great series and this is definitely a good one!

Note for the narration...the narrator changed Logan's brother, Cole's, voice between book #1 and #2. I did NOT like the change. There was an inflection in this book that made him sound like a jerk that wasn't there in the first book, but that was my only complaint. I love his voices for both Logan and Tate and those are the ones that count.
