TRUST – verb: to believe in the reliability, truth, or strength of another.Up until now, Logan Mitchell has never had much of a reason to trust anyone.Having struggled with a self-identity crisis throughout college, he’s spent the years since then creating a sophisticated facade to present to the world.It’s an armor he thought was impenetrable—until he met Tate Morrison.The gorgeous, headstrong bartender he’d sat across from only months ago has taken a tight hold of his heart, and Logan is discovering that it’s time to let go.It’s time to let someone inside.After years of placing his dreams on hold for his family, Tate has finally chosen to do what makes him happy and follow his heart.The one thing he never would’ve imagined was that it would lead him into the arms of a man—and not just any man—the striking, never-takes-no-for-an-answer Logan Mitchell.Tate has fallen hard, and as his world is turned on its axis and they move forward together, he finds his life becoming more entwined with the confident, successful lawyer.Even though neither man expected the other, it’s time to trust in their relationship—but not everything comes so easily…
Over the course of the Temptation series, Logan and Tate became one of my all time favorite literary couples. Seriously, they are right up there with Scarlett and Rhett. << Those are extreme words right there, people.
I think what draws me in is that they both come from such very different places, they both bring some strong insecurities to the relationship but they both fought so hard for each other and to find the life that works for them both.
Trust closes this series with some heavy emotions, some extreme turmoil, some tears...yep, I shed one or two. It touches on a real life subject that happens to many partners and I got very emotional about it. I won't explain in order to keep this spoiler free, but it really is a heartbreaking situation.
On top of that, there are still those insecurities I spoke of that need to be handled once and for all. It's not been an easy road for either of them, but the hard road is easier to walk when you have true love holding your hand along the way.
Frank handles the situations she creates for these two with such a unique voice though, she evens out the drama and sadness with Tate and Logan's signature banter. They never fail to put a smile on my face, that usually melts off by the steaminess their snarky talks lead to.
This is such a vague review but the bottom line is this - read this series! Read about two men finding themselves in someone else, learning to trust and love in an absolutely unconditional way, all while having witty conversation and super fucking hot sex. What more could you ask for?
