Audiobook Review: Hate (Madison Kate, #1) by Tate James. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Hate by Tate James

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“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. 


So good!

The heroine: Madison Kate Danvers – her father is one of the most influential people in town. MK goes to an illegal fight in the big top of a closed amusement park when shots were heard. A girl was trampled in the crowd and MK was framed for stealing the key and letting everyone into the big top on what is now known as “riot night”.

The Hero(es): Archer D’Ath (a.k.a. blue eyes) – he was fighting in the illegal fight at the big top. He basically delivered MK to the cops that night. He is also half brother to Zane D’Ath who murdered MK’s mom when she was 11 years old and locked in a closet 20 feet away.
Max Steele (a.k.a. grey eyes) – he could play concert piano but hasn’t decided if he wants to yet. He and the other two guys are part time models. He works on cars in the garage in his spare time
Kodak “Kody” James (a.k.a. green eyes) – Gave MK the hoodie with the key to the big top which made her look like the guilty party. He is now a personal trainer to the stars and has the body to match.

The Story: Madison is framed for the events that happened at the Laughing Clown on riot night. She is put in jail and put on trial, though eventually the charges are dropped and her father sends her away to live with an aunt until things die down. M.K. returns to find out the three guys that framed her are now living in her father’s new house and her father goes away on vacation without waiting for her to get home.

I loved the narration in this one. It was done by Brooke Daniels and Lucas Webley. Brook Daniels voice reminded me of character actress Samaire Armstrong who has been in a ton of movies and TV shows. She has a very pretty voice which is perfect for Madison Kate. Lucas Webley has a nice deep voice which I enjoyed which he made even deeper for Steele.
