Publisher's Summary

Try - verb: To make an attempt or effort to do something or in this case…someone.
Sex. Logan Mitchell loves it, and ever since he realized his raw sexual appeal at a young age, he has had no problem using it to his advantage. Men and women alike fall into his bed - after all, Logan is not one to discriminate. He lives by one motto - if something interests you, why not just take a chance and try?
And he wants to try Tate Morrison.
Just coming out of a four-year marriage with an ex-wife from hell, a relationship is the last thing on Tate's mind. He's starting fresh and trying to get back on his feet with a new job at an upscale bar in downtown Chicago.
The only problem is, Tate has caught the unwavering and unwelcome attention of Mr. Logan Mitchell - a regular at the bar and a man who always gets what he wants.
Night after night Tate fends off the persistent advances of the undeniably charismatic man, but after an explosive moment in the bar, all bets are off as he finds his body stirring with a different desire than his mind.
As arrogance, stubbornness and sexual tension sizzles between the two, it threatens to change the very course of their lives.
Logan doesn't do relationships. Tate doesn't do men. But what would happen if they both just gave in and…tried?

Just no.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A plot. The sex was well written and scorching. And sometimes you just want some plain old porn. It's just I like a plot with all that butt sex!

Has Try turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. I think I'm even going to TRY the second book, as there seemed to finally be a connection between the characters. However, the 8 chapters of sexual harassment almost did me in.

Would you be willing to try another one of Shannon Gunn’s performances?

Not by choice. Voices were odd, but the outright screaming every time someone came was over the top. Screaming doesn't make it better. Just loud.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Try?

I would have slashed the first eight chapters or at least made Logan less of a almost rapey asshole.

If you like m/m erotica, it's a great book - but not the best audiobook.

I am fan of erotic romance and erotica. "Try" is a good example of m/m erotica done right. Flawed but relatable male characters, plenty of internal conflict, hot sex scenes. The best part of this book is that the first third or more is one long, delicious tease. By the first time of actual sex, the reader can feel the desperate relief. The first book in the series, much of the conflict is internal or between Tate and Logan. I would have liked some external conflict as well, but that comes out in the next book in the series.

The audiobook performance, however, is awful. The reader has two distinct voices for Tate and Logan. His voice for Tate sounds like Worf from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Very distracting. He over-acted the sex scenes and made them more porn, less hot passion. If you can call an M/M sex scene melodramatic, he did exactly that. His female voices were almost offensive. They all sounded like whiny empty-headed co-eds, and they all sounded exactly the same. I was disappointed with the performance overall.

My recommendation: read the book instead of listening to it.

Great story - but I prefer the print version

What did you like best about Try? What did you like least?

I have read the book many times, so I thought the audiobook would be a good addition to my library. However, the narration and I just didn't mesh, and it was all a little too much. Yes, I know it's an erotica - but I like my erotica a little less salacious.

How could the performance have been better?

It just felt a little too over the top for me - too many 'crescendo' sounds in the audio that let me create less of my own world and felt like too much of it was created for me.

Do you think Try needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Well....there's Take and Trust, so yeah!

Any additional comments?

Although the audio didn't work for me, I absolutely love the book and would happily recommend.

Ella spins her magic!

I've done a re-read/listen of this book because the sixth and final book of the series has just come out. All six books are about Logan and Tate and their journey to a HEA. Tate starts out as a straight, about to be, divorcee. Bi Logan walks into the bar where Tate works, hones in on Tate and makes it his mission to "own him". So from that premise, we go on an emotional, drama filled, only slightly angsty, beautiful journey to get an ending Tate had no idea was even a possibility and for Logan, it was never on his horizon. An excellent series and great audio by Shannon Gunn too.
