This was my first book by Tate James, and the first in the Madison Kate series, and I was certainly NOT disappointed.


What a way to start this series. Hate totally consumed me. Tate James has an incredibly immersive and engaging writing style, that kept me on the edge of my seat, and wanting more.


I loved the growth between the characters, and absolutely loved the way Tate was able to articulate individual depth into each of them. They each have their own distinct personalities and unique stories that shine through... and holy moly they are hot as sin! Woah!


This is a relatively slow burn on the sexual action, however there is a crazy amount of sexual tension right through the book, and itโ€™s the perfect pace to setup the plot for the future.


Overall, a very intriguing plot, with fantastic writing, well defined characters, and more than enough sexual tension makes it one of my favourite RH reads of the year, and I cannot wait to get into book 2 Liar.


โ€œIt was a shame they'd tried to screw me so hard a year ago because I might have just found my soulmates.โ€
