The second time, he kissed me.
Now, he’s warning me to stay away.
I thought I left the pricks behind when I went to college. Then, like a rash I can’t get rid of, Chase Mathers shows up. He thinks he’s bad, rolling down the street on his Harley with his little gang in tow, but he has no idea what bad is.
So bring it on fuckface, because ...more

An entertaining read, an age-gap featuring two equally fierce yet broken characters in a mature motorcycle club-new adult setting creates an angst-filled love story. However, as typical of Hodel's books, there is lots humor. This story follows the revival of Chase's MC Lost Souls amid power struggles with a rival.
Chase, who made appearances in The Order series, returns to an almost defunct motorcycle club to resume his lead position. He is sexy, muscular, tatted, and dominating, but wat ...more
However, with what I read and do know, I absolutely LOVE Chase and Naomi. Chase is beautifully broken to the core, and he needs the bratty bitch to keep him in line!
AVA. IS. MY. GIRL! She literally stole the show in this story with her crazy psychoti ...more

This is a MC age gap romance. Chase is all authority and grit while Naomi is a stuck up bitch. Yep you heard me, she’s a bitch. I absolutely loved who Naomi was, so many stories focus on making heroines perfect. Naomi is far from that, but even through her bitchy attitude you start to understand a little on the why. You get crumbs throughout the book for both main characters on what made them so ...more
✨CORRECT READING ORDER✨
book 📕 1: Adversaries (The Lost Souls MC prequel, #.5)
book 📕 2: Adversaries (The Lost Souls MC book 1)
book 📕 3: Frenemies (The Lost Souls MC book 2)
just thought i’d clear that up and save y’all so much time
📚Adversaries📚 is the first, or technically second, book in TL Hodels “Lost Souls MC” trilogy.
i do recommend reading the prequel, it gives you a nice background and is literally a 20 minute read.
in dual POV,
I only realized I was missing something when I mentioned how lost I was to a friend, and she told me that it might be best to read The Order of the Ravens and Wolves first (though there is no warning for this book).
Adversaries is the mc romance featuring club president Chase and little stuck up rich girl Naomi.
Chase is a walking, talking, all form of the word alpha! He has a tortured past where he lost not only his woman but his child too. losing them would have been hard enough however when it’s someone he trusted that took them away.. that leads to destruction.
He is a broken man who thinks he has nothing ...more
I loved Chase and Naomi’s dynamic, but for me… Ava stole the show! I cannot wait to see more and more of her character. Really hope she gets her own book, because I loved her! She’s insane but totally endearing at the same time.
Anyways… back to Naomi and Chase.
I really liked how T.L Hodel dove straight into both of these characters that we’d already come to know and love from the other books. It gave an insight into the world, minds and history that we didn’t get to see before.

Daddy Chase is hear to steal your heart and I am just going to give it to him willingly....Naomi, you lucky girl!!!
When you mix the order of wolves and Raven to a MC world...you know it's going to a chaos.
I have loved every bit of glimpse we h ...more
Because I couldn't stand the fmc. She was rude, bitchy, and stuck-up. As Chase would say she was a cunt. I couldn't find anything nice or redeeming about her (except her protecting/helping her roommate who was roofied.) Also for some reason it annoyed when Naomi would talk about sleeping with Micha and Logan (in her chapters). Probably because I liked t ...more
I'm not even mad that this book ended in a cliffhanger because there is so much unfinished with Chase story and Naomi story.... I can't wait to find out what she knows that they don't want him to find out.... I want Naomi deep dark Secrets.... The thing that annoys my is this author is so good, I can't get enough of her writing.... I want more of this story but at the same time I want more of The Order of Ravens and Wolves.... Again I really want Preston, more then ...more
God I loved this book. Chase is soooo my kinda guy, dark and with a deliciously dirty side. But he's oh so very broken, almost at the very bottom.
Naomi is a bitch, but its the kind that's born out of a need to protect herself. Even if she doesn't realise it. When these two clash the sparks are gonna start an inferno!
Fans of the order of ravens and wolves will love the little bits tha ...more
Unfortunately I had to dnf this at about 20%. I had no idea what was happening and it didn’t make sense to me . I got that Chase worked in a tattoo parlor , was possibly the owner , and had lost a woman and a kid. Naomi was the mayor’s spoiled rich daughter who treated people like they were the scum off of her shoes . I couldn’t tolerate her at all . Then there were a bunch of odd characters thrown in . Frat boys , sorority girls , a guy named Preston who was nuts ...more
When I was first introduced to Naomi in Aftereffect, she barely registered as more than "that bitch" on my radar. She grew on me like a fungus in Scartissue, but I never expected to actually like her. I totally cheered Chase on the first time he bent her over and royally spanked her. But in Adversaries, somehow. T.L. Hodel managed to turn it around. I don't know if it was the peek into Naomi's pain, her clear love for Ava (who, for the record, I absolutel ...more
I’ve been so excited for this book I’m so glad it is finally here! Age gap MC romance and so so good!
Naomi, you either love her or hate her. Her character was so amusing - there was literally never a dull moment with her around. She’s so strong and fierce it makes you wonder what she’s been through. Loved seeing her character develop!
Chase, I wish I could just hug this man. He’s been through hell and back and now it’s getting worse. He’s not what you would expect, but he is so ...more
Oh this was so good!! This was a story full of action, heart break, danger and friendship! I didn't want it to end! I loved how the author can take a quite serious or dangerous scene and still manage to add some humour into it. Ava and Tanner supplying some of those laugh out loud moments!! I also loved having Micah and Riley pop up in certain scenes as well.
Chase was everything I was hoping for and more but I wasn't expecting his story to be so emotional or for him to be so conflict ...more
I have been waiting for Naomi and Chase's story for so long and this definitely did not disappoint. T.L. Hodel always delivers, from the first chapter to the last you're hooked on every word. When I first met Naomi in Aftereffect, I really didn't like her but the more I started reading Adversaries the more she starts growing on you. Chase is definitely Daddy and I know Naomi has finally met her match. Chase and Naomi finally explore their explosive chemistry and it is fire🔥🔥. ...more
If you thought you loved Chase before then this book will make you fall more in love with him! He has the perfect mix of alpha male and sweet and protective. I think both him and Naomi are exactly what the other needs. Naomi is so hard but i think it’s because of the trauma she has suffered, deep down i think she has a soft vulnerable side and towards the end you could see parts of it coming through. I can’t wait to see what the next book has in store for them. I also love Ava and Tan ...more
Naomi and Chase is a story waiting to happen!! Chase is broken after the death of his wife and son and comes out of hiding after 8 years to avenge their deaths and kill his brother. Naomi is the mayors daughter and can be very spoiled and has high standards.
Their love is somewhat of a slow burn they keep trying to fight but when that fire ignites it’s so hot! Such a great storyline
How could authors do that to us avid readers!?!?Lol
Não me and Chase are probably the must unpredictable couple ever written and at the same time it was delicious to see their relationship develop.
Ava is my favorite. Man I can’t wait for her book and Preston as well!
This series it’s mind blowing!!!
I really liked Chase in the previous books and happy he got his finally. I'm not the biggest fan of Naomi and I hope to see her grow more and more. My issue with this book is the CONSTANT spelling and grammatical errors. This author needs some editing done for her books. There were serious issues with almost every page and it gets aggravating at times. I still enjoy ready her stories though. ...more
The chemistry between Chase and Naomi was straight 🔥 from their very first interaction!
Naomi was so bratty but she made up for it with her defiant attitude and secret softer side she hid from the world.
Chase was so hot but oh so broken. His dirty talk was off the charts sexy and his ability to back it up was 🤤
I’m going to anxiously awaiting book 2 after that ending….
Excellent story but ends on a cliffhanger, Ava makes this book! The humor, the action, the smexy scenes with Spider and Naomi are wild but I Can’t wait for Ava and Tanners HEA.
PS - This continues from another series and can only really be understood and enjoyed fully when others are read before this.
