Excellent story that I have read many times and Shannom Gunn added to the story with perfect narration! 5 stars!!

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.

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.
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.
If you think reading try was good
This audio is even better
Total mind blowing
Go ahead and try
