Series Review: Madison Kate Series by Tate James

I only have Rachel (@fitteacherrachel) to thank for introducing me to this series. You see, ya girl doesn’t do reverse harem very often. Honestly teenage Whitney would probably visibly gag at the idea of one woman with multiple men. I have read a few reverse harem romances before picking up the Madison Kate series by Tate James, but never loved them. The need to see how the relationship dynamics worked was the only reason I picked up a RH book. Madison Kate was the first series that actually intrigued me more – past the curiosity of what happens in the bedroom.

“Madison Kate Danvers was murdered tonight.”

Those words changed my life, and not for the better.
They were wrong, of course. I wasn’t dead. But I was set up.
After being charged with a string of offences–and made an example of by my political minded father–I’m eventually released back into Shadow Grove with one thing on my mind.
Someone is going to pay for derailing my carefully laid out future. Someone is going to catch the full force of my hate. How very convenient that someone just moved into the bedroom down the hall from me.
Archer D’Ath and his boys messed with the wrong chick and they’re about to learn just how cold Madison Kate’s hate can run.

HATE is a full length mature college/new adult romance with enemies-to-lovers/love-hate themes. This is a reverse harem novel, meaning the main character has more than one love interest. This is book one of four in the series.

Tropes Include:

  • Reverse Harem
  • Bullying
  • Enemies-to-Lovers
  • Not like other girls/every guy wants the heroine

I was so captivated by every little detail in this series. I loved the town, Shadow Grove, and all the characters that resided there. I knew this was something special when I didn’t mind things I typically hate in other romance novels – like intense bullying, overdramatic reactions, and the infamous not like other girls trope. And let’s not forget – cliffhangers! The author’s ability to seamlessly completely tie up a loose end in every installment yet leave us with a tasteful cliffhanger that has us begging for more was just chef’s kiss.

I really wish I could talk in greater detail about every thing I loved in this series, but I don’t want to potentially spoil anyone. Just know that this series is absolutely superb; the best RH series I have ever read. It truly is the perfect mix of spice and plot with heaping helping of twisty turns. Trust me when I say that you will NEVER guess what is lurking on the next page. Tate James is brilliant!
