Born and raised in Canterbury, New Zealand, Max now resides with her family in beautiful and sunny Queensland, Australia.
ife with two young children can be hectic at times and, although she may not write as often as she would like, Max wouldn’t change a thing.

An avid lover of stories from a young age, she enjoys nothing more than to get lost in the pages while the characters dictate what direction she takes. Her favourite genre to write is young/new adult and the events in her stories may or may not be related to real life experiences (only she will ever know for sure). 

n her down time, Max can be found at her local gym brainstorming through a session with the weights. If not, she’s probably out drooling over one of many classic cars on show that she wishes she owned.

The Conclusion in this amazing must-read series

I’ve said from the start that this whole plot has more U-turns, twists and half-truths than a political party debate at election time, and well, with election time coming up soon for us here in NZ where the story is set, current party antics definitely reflect the goings on in this series. It is fast-paced, intricate and scary to think that these are the minds of 17-18 year olds who are brought up to take over the hold that their parents have on the power structure in their towns.

Those at the top of the food chain use people as pawns on their climb to the top of the power ladder, and these kids have been learning those lessons since kindergarten.

Also, I’m loving the whole multiple point of views that Max Henry has going on, and she is totally making it work for me!!! The characters are showing their true colours and motivations, yet amongst it all, Lacey and Tuck are proving to be amazingly strong young adults who show a lot of integrity. I just love these two.

Seriously, if there is one thing that I want to convince you of, it’s that I unreservedly recommend not only this book, but the entire series, because a series it is, and it must be read in order. I hear you say, ‘but I don’t read Young Adult’ and I reply to you, well neither do I, but Max Henry is an author who can pull a book together and have you gagging for more, regardless of the trope!!! 4.5 Stars.

What a perfect ending to this series!

I have waited on bated breath for this ending and I love the justice Max did to it ❤ not only keeping in mind the age of the characters but also their emotional capabilities.

I don't want to give too much away but this was very carefully crafted and delicately done. It was great!

We still get all the angst and lust you would expect from this group, a few hot and heavy moments for sure.

I cant wait to read the entire series in one go because I know there will be so many pieces that will fall into place second time around.

(3.5 stars)

The day has finally come, the day that all parties have been waiting for, or praying doesn't happen. No one knows how this night is going to go, some hope that the issue will be squashed and never to be mentioned again, while others want some to pay for what has happened. So many outcomes are possible. Will Colt and Greer be together at the end? Or will they go separate ways? Tuck and Lacey... is there even a remote chance that they end this together?

So much was going on, so many characters that I actually blanked on who Richard was. TBH I feel that this is what happens when a story gets extended, I felt let down, this was supposed to be a huge thing and in the end... it fell flat for me. I feel like we got more HFN than HEA. I give this 3.5 stars.

I’m so conflicted because I love this series, and book but I don’t really feel like I have closure. It feels like the series just randomly ended. I need to know if Amber spoke with her mother and was honest about her feelings. And hello! What about that huge bombshell that Derek is really Greer’s biological father? She doesn’t even know yet, and I feel like this is a huge deal. I need to know how she reacts to that news. Hopefully that’s one of the extra chapters or spin off books that was hinted at. I would 100% read a whole book, or series about Greer, Colt, and their life together because Lacey and Tuck who? Greer and Colt have definitely become my favorite couple out of this series.

Besides what I mentioned, I really did enjoy the series and this final book as well. The major plotline was wrapped up well and had a conclusion that was satisfying.

I'm going to be honest I didn't love the ending. I feel like a lot of issues were left unresolved with the characters. For the end of the series I feel it was very open ended. Yes Tuck and Lacey got their HEA but all the other characters that made this series not so much. I'm hoping this will be continued with a conclusion for all. 3.5 stars.

Done Deal for a whole series Well Done!
Max Henry has finished off this series in spectacular style, giving these troublesome adolescents a valid and mature ending, from what has been a tumultuous ride of teen angst, scandal and misbehaviour of epic proportions.
All I can say is, I'm glad my teen years are over and I don't have kids of my own!

This apparent finale to the Arcadia High Anarchists series (because, in all honesty I don't trust this author not to surprise me with more!) is full of the drama we've come to expect from these unruly young adults, but gives them a conclusion that reveals to themselves and each other their true motivations behind all the torment they've gone through, and sees them learn who they are as they are about to enter adulthood.

Throughout, Tuck and Lacey continue to deepen their connection and commitment to one another as they try to prevent all out war between "The Chosen" of Riverbourne and Arcadia's "Mavericks" and Colt and Greer come to terms with just what they mean to each other and whether or not the events unfolding will tear them apart too.

Secrets and Lies abound. A delicious bombshell gets dropped. And our villains get their comeuppance.
All in all, our questions we've had get answered and truths revealed.
These scandalous kids have left me exhausted! I think I'm done with YA drama now!!

Done Deal is the conclusion to the Arcadia High Anarchists series, and it's a continuing storyline so YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST READ 1-4 FIRST AND IN ORDER.  As such, I'm not naming names or giving detail because the brilliant Max Henry has created a next level intricate, fast paced young adult situation that doesn't read like a young adult series to be honest.  It's filled with insane twists & turns which are much bigger (if possible) this round.  I'm in awe how Ms. Monroe actually kept me on my toes as I never really grasped the big picture throughout it all though I thought I had.  Done Deal is told from multiple POVs which absolutely worked for me because there's a lot of multiple POV stories out there that confuse me.  I know that it's the conclusion, but I hope that BAM!  Another round comes out to play because I'm not wanting to give it all up.  I will read each one of the 5 again because I'm positive that I actually missed things.  So hit those one click buttons, and if you haven't started this series yet...WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!  HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ALL!

“Done Deal” is book five and the finale in Max Henry’s ‘Arcadia High Anarchist’ series. It is recommended that this series be read in order.

This whole series has been filled with teen angst, drama, betrayal, scandal, secrets, lies, and serious character growth. Max Henry has done an excellent job with this conclusion of misbehaving teens, as they find themselves.

The war between The Chosen (Riverbourne) and Mavericks (Arcadia) continues to grow, while Tuck and Lacey try to stop it. Lacey and Tuck’s bond deepens while they commit themselves to each other. Colt and Greer try to understand and come to terms for what is going on between them. If you have been having questions, they will all get answered and truths will be revealed.

Thank you Max for giving us this world and giving us the best finale possible. This series will be something that I will be rereading in the future.

A YA book series that would keep you entertained.

To read this book I would recommend to read the previous books, The plot continues from the first book and it revolves around the same characters, you get a few new characters here and there. You will get a great plot, multiple POVs, diversity in the characters. Characters who want to be on top, and are driven by power. I would love to share more but I can’t give spoilers.

I was left wanting more from the conclusion of the Arcadia High Anarchists. It was an enjoyable read with a few truths I wasn’t expecting, however it was a bit lack lustre. These kids were shaped into a carefully laid plan by their parents, expectations were high and bloodlines were something to be respected. One’s happiness was irrelevant, stick to the plan, be as ruthless and uncaring as those who were supposed to love us unconditionally. Although the characters are teenagers who’ve lost their way, they come to realise they share similarities even though they come from opposite ends of the spectrum. Confronting your fears is huge, having those who matter around you makes all the difference.

Another good book in a fantastic series that I thoroughly reccomend. As this was the last book in the series, I'm surprised at the way it ended leaving some questions unanswered, especially when they appeared so late in the book.
Hopefully the author will do books for other characters in the future, so they'll get answered then. Most of the main issues from previous books got answered got answered tho so that's a plus. It's just as a reader I don't like loose ends, that's just me personally though...
Still didn't stop it being a good book and I guess it leaves the series open to more in the future even though it was supposed to be the end...

Done Deal is the 5th and final book of the Arcadia High Anarchists Series by Max Henry. Im so excited we finally see how the drama and destruction ends with Arcadia, Riverbourne and Portside. Grudges, betrayal, truths and hurt leads everyone to reveal secrets. The unfolding events change the characters and in result they mature. There are curve balls thrown that I did not expect. I will say I am a little disappointed in the ending as some things do not have a clear ending as to final resolve and/or explanation as what happened or why.

It’s a Slow read but,I am loving the Dynamics of the characters and how they fit in to the storyline. This cliffhanger has left me eager for the next book. Which will be last in series and if didn’t disappoint.
I really enjoyed this book, it’s been a lot different to what I expected. The characters have some strong stubborn and feisty personalities. There a lot of mysteries and dark secrets to cover and definitely some vengeance to be had, but that’s what had me so invested in series

I received a free copy of this book.

This is not a standalone! This was a good book and ties up the stories for the most part (even though I really want to see where certain people ended up!). The story was not fast-paced, even a bit slow since there is less conniving and violence going on. There are a couple of hot times with some couples finally consummating relationships completely and admitting true feelings. And I definitely like that some parents finally stepped in and parented a bit. There are definitely some surprises thrown in for good measure. Overall a good read.

A fabulous end to a great series and what a way to finish, I highly recommend this series! Back with all our favourite country and city kids... Max has a wonderful way of tieing up all the loose ends, or is it the end? I'm hoping this is not the last we see of these complex but loveable characters, there were a couple of questions left hanging, which hopefully leaves the door open for more! Go out and one click if you haven't.. A highly enjoyable, easy reading series you won't want to put down!

This was an AMAZING ending to the Arcadia High Anarchists series. It was so, so good. I don’t want to go into detail and spoil anything, particularly because you absolutely must read the series in order. Just know that it is worth the time! It’s such an epic story.

I received an advanced copy of the ebook and am voluntarily leaving a review. My opinions are my own.

Teen turmoil

Great closure for the turmoil these teens have caused. Shocking new revelations were found out about some of them. I love that Greer and Lace truly found themselves and their mates. Great job. Great series

Arcadia High

I read this whole series it was very good but very long-winded it had a lot of great points to it but it was easy to get lost in the characters and lose interest points because there was way too much going on under the surface

The perfect end to an incredible series.

As every book in this series, Done Deal was a well written and emotional page turner that I really didn't want to end.

The book is fine, I guess. I just lost track of what was happening, or maybe just stopped caring somewhere during book 3. I finished book 4 fast but I don't think I was really following.

The ups and downs of teenage life. Bullies become the bullied, lies and truths rise to coat the skins of those falling down the ladder of popularity as well as those clambering over the top of the pile to climb the ladder in the hopes of reaching the top. The last year's of school when you begin the journey into adulthood and realize the hurt you have caused to others, while trying to hold onto your position in teenage hierarchy. Sometimes parents have to intervene so you realize, in the end, it's just may not be worth being the Chosen.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this series and this book is no exception. Every time a new book was released I thought, ‘Oh, how can they solve this quandary?’ And things were resolved were other things became more twisted or new issues popped up keeping the storyline hopping. This book intrigued me in exactly that manner and for the record, the book is amazing. You are kept on a string just long enough until pieces start to slot in place. I loved how little bits and pieces were tied up but also how new things were revealed as well.

We see different sides to many of the characters and it was good to get to know more of the Arcadia parents too. The chemistry between Tuck and Lacey is smoking hot as it is between Colt and Greer. A healthy balance though was given, even though it could easily have had more scenes with intimacy between characters, the story luckily didn’t fall into that rabbit hole.

Although this is the last book in the series the author has said there are spin off books planned which is evident by the little twists and turns this story took, yes, I loved it! Bring it on!
