"We need to be more Christian than Afro-American" - Pastor George Thomas
This book has hit so many points about the things & areas God is growing me in, that I have been truly encouraged to be a better disciple. Not a better human or American or Woman, but a better representative of Christ himself! Walking as we are called by God, doesn't mean we neglect the plight nor oppression of those around us. It means that regardless of the issue, we align ourselves with God 1st! We should always be standing with God, regardless of how counterintuitive it seems to the world. I thoroughly enjoyed all the lessons, transparency & open hearted honesty of the journey for Kim.
If God is calling you deeper or you just need to know how you can walk the straight & narrow from right where you are, then this book is for you! Kim Cash Tate doesn't use shame, guilt or condemnation to encourage you to let go of the labels/conformity of this world that hinder you. Instead, she is honest & loving in her personal story showing you how to follow God to the life He purposed for you!
Sigh... I just love these men. And although this book is called Tate, I'm such a sucker for Logan. As arrogant and inappropriate he still is, he has become so much more....
The last book was sweet all over but this installment was so not. Ms Frank sure threw out a punch. Well actually Tate did.
There, in a bathroom that was built for sin, the passion eased and the fever simmered until the deeper, scarier feelings began to consume the two of them.
... he was falling all over again.
Falling for the charm of the silvertongued lawyer who'd picked him to sit down opposite that first night.
Falling into a relationship he'd always wanted but never dreamed he would have.
But most of all, he was falling in love with Logan all over again, just as he'd done every day since he'd known him.
NOW Tate understood.
"I dare you to try.
I think you're my truth
(spoiler show)Marry me
"The Temptation Series by Ella Frank was proof that if we open our minds and our hearts to love without boundaries, the result is nothing less than extraordinary."

William Tate Morrison – The man who came into my life and turned my entire world—and me—on its ass.
Logan Mitchell has always been a man with a plan.
One for work. One for his relationship. And one for his life. Which is exactly the way he liked it—until recently.
Now with words like marriage and weddings floating around his head, Logan’s plans have suddenly changed course, and where they want him to go has him feeling somewhat distracted.
Tate Morrison knows Logan better than anybody else—or so he thinks. So when his lawyer is finding it hard to sleep at night, he chalks it up to the craziness that has recently descended on their lives.
Never in a million years would he guess what’s really on Logan’s mind.
Tate is the fifth book in the Temptation Series, and the next chapter in the lives of the two men we have all come to know and love.
When Logan came to a stop in the doorway, he spotted Tate seated cross-legged on the floor in amongst piles of books, DVDs, and paperwork in various files and binders. There was stuff everywhere, and when Tate looked over his shoulder at Logan, he couldn’t stop himself from smiling at the picture he made.
Tate was wearing grey sweats and a faded green t-shirt with some band he’d seen years ago printed on it. But that wasn’t what had Logan crossing to him, wanting a kiss. No, that’d be all those damn curls. They were sticking out all over the place and framing his face as Tate aimed that charming grin of his up at Logan.
Logan bent down and pressed a kiss to those curved lips, and Tate hummed and gladly returned it. “Looks like you’ve made some progress,” Logan said.
Tate looked around and nodded. “Yeah, a bit. God, that smells amazing.”
“Here.” Logan handed him the box. “No point in moving. I’ll grab some paper towels and drinks. What do you want?”
Tate put the pizza box down in front of him. “A water.”
Logan shook his head and then headed out to the kitchen, calling over his shoulder, “I’ll never understand how you drink water with your pizza. That’s just wrong.”
“I’ve always had water with it. Habit, I guess. Oh, hey? Are you still okay with going to Jill’s this weekend?”
Logan grabbed the paper towels, a Coke and water from the fridge, and then walked back into the study, tossing the bottled water. “Yeah, of course. I assume you decided it would be a good idea?”
“I don’t know that I’d go that far. But I want to see my nephews, and I’d really like you to meet them and my friends.”
Logan tried to keep his face neutral as Tate’s words went straight to his heart. But damn, not only was he proud of Tate, he felt incredibly loved by him in that moment. “Then we should go.”
Tate flipped open the pizza box and scooted over to make room for him, and as Logan took up the vacated spot, he let his eyes wander around the disaster zone and cleared his throat. “This room is a mess.” Tate tore off a paper towel and then picked up a slice of the deep-dish pepperoni they’d decided on. “I’m thinking it’ll probably take us the longest. Who knew we had so much junk in here?”
Logan reached for a DVD set sitting on the top of the pile and screwed his nose up. “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe? Really? I think we need a trash pile. Have you started one of those?”
“Hey,” Tate said around a bite of his pizza. “Don’t even think about it. I grew up watching that.”
“The important part of that sentence is you grew up.” Logan flipped the DVD over in his hand, read the back of the box, and then raised a questioning eyebrow. “This might actually explain a few things about you.”
“Really?” Tate rolled his eyes. “Then it must also explain a few things about the majority of young boys in the eighties. That was a popular show. You aren’t throwing it out; it’s nostalgic. Plus, you never know, if you sat down and watched an episode with me, you just might like it.”
“Highly doubtful.” Logan put the box down and reached for a slice of pizza.
“Okay. Okay. I know you were more into books than TV,” Tate said, as his eyes went to the mountains of literature stacked in piles against the far wall. “What was something you read as a boy? Is it in one of those piles?”
Logan swallowed his mouthful of food and looked over at the books while Tate kept on talking. “I mean, there are some pretty old-looking ones mixed in there with the autobiographies, textbooks, and National Geographics.”
Logan looked back to Tate and narrowed his eyes. “Pretty old ones? What am I, sixty?” Tate unscrewed his water and took a long gulp, draining half of it, then put the lid back on and set it down. “Nope. About to turn thirty-eight, last time I checked.”
“How about you stop checking?”

Tate by Ella Frank
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the 5th book in the acclaimed Temptation series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this fabulous series in order.
Logan & Tate's story picks up with a bang! This story shows them moving on and more settled in this book. Logan is a man with a plan, and Tate stirs the pot a little by having a plan of his own.
Tate does not want anything to mess up what he and Logan have. He is more cautious and aware of what he has and holds it dear. Then Logan turns him on his butt with a whole new idea.
I really love this series! This is such an incredible installment. This story made me feel all the feels. I cried, I laughed, I devoured every page.... I cannot wait to read the next book!!
