That’s it. I officially have trust issues.
Tate James has a way with words and writing that make you think you know a character. And then she rips the rug out from under you and a switch flips making you second guess a character. That’s what this book was.
Do we really know any of the men surrounding Hades?? Because now I don’t trust anyone. Lmao.

Anarchy starts off right where 7th Circle ended.
Have no fear, Tate James didn’t kill off any main characters right off the bat, but like I said, she def

Anarchy. Per usual, Tate is giving complex dimensions to this story. Of course, we have literal anarchy- a twisting, jaw dropping, swoony and heartbreaking narrative arc that keeps the pages turning. Chaotic action, danger, suspense, and delicious sexy times. But this story is really about the parallel EMOTIONAL anarchy- Hayden trying to come to terms with the shifting relationship dynamics all around here. New truths, new feelings, changing trust and intimacy, the fe

Jawdropping. Speechless. Must Read

Tate James is unbelievable another jaw dropping book that takes your breath away. The rollercoaster of emotions & CARNAGE are UNREAL.

And breathe. The supsense, drama, chaos & passion picks up exactly where 7th circle ends. The chemistry, sauciness & heat is HOTT as hell within this book..add in pure danger, damaged emotions and HADES. You're in for one hella of a ride.

WTF did I just read.

No, seriously... what, how, WHY???

My brain is reeling and honest to god I fully stared at the book for 5 minutes while I tried to process what the fuck had just happened. Emphasis on tried. Pretty sure I had a mini heart attack with that ending. WHY TATE WHY? 😭 (Low key regretting starting this series before all the books were out cause I don't think I can wait till fucking JUNE for Club 22)

"'He's declared war on Hades herself; there's only one way to end this.'" Zed gave a grim laugh. 'With total anarchy.'"

Book 2 in the Hades was just as epic as I expected. There's lies, corruption, sex and a lot of bloodshed. I really enjoyed this story and the progression of some of the relationships in this one. I have to say, Hades really made me mad most of the time with the choices she would make but I still loved her fierce and badass personality.

Cliffhanger haters, gird your loins! This one’s a doozy. Luckily for me? I love me a cliffy!!! I absolutely adore the building up of the relationships, especially the bromances. Cass and Hades both managed to get their heads out of their butts. Zed is still acting like a spoiled, jealous child, but there’s hope for him. And Gumdrop? There’s so much more to Gumdrop than meets the eye. I really can’t wait for more of his background! Bring on Club 22! Only 85 more days! 😂💜

I don't know why this book didn't do it for me as much as the first book did. This is a 3.5 rounded upto a 4.

The story continues with Hades looking for Lucas after he was taken by someone from her past. She ends up finding him badly hurt, but isn't sure how her dead ex fiancé resurrected from the dead after she very clearly shot him in the head 5 years ago. The story continues with Hades building a relationship of sorts with Lucas, Cass and even Zed alongwith some shady shit done by someone who'

My ass got really fucking comfortable with Tate and that's on me. I thought I figured out her shit after reading the Undercover series (that's yet to be fucking finished!!!!) and the Madison Kate series. I thought, very fucking stupidly, that I knew where she was going to go with this Hades series, I fucking KNEW.

I'm loving the new Hades series by Tate James. Hades is a truly fierce fmc and where I didn't particularly enjoy the MK series, feeling like MK was too quick to roll over, Hades is very much the opposite, bordering on too self sufficient, but I straight up appreciate her resolute approach that commands and earns respect. I love her guys and the way they each fill a different need for her. Lucas is my current favorite but I'm sure that spot will undoubtedly jostle between all three of the g

Anarchy is the second book in Hades series, picking up from where we left off in book #1 ending. Hades, Cass and Zed come to rescue Lucas from a seemingly old acquaintance that was supposed to be dead. This shifts everything around them, including their relationship as the four try to navigate their hard feelings and distrust for one another while trying to find out what the fuck's going on.

Lucas is still my bubbly ray of sunshine and I want to keep him forever. Cass is still the hot and cold a

6/5 Stars Extra Star Read Anarchy was a completely enjoyable, addictive read throughout. I love 7th Circle and Anarchy just got better. Now that we have established some things in 7th Circle we really got to explore the characters more this book. I really felt like we get to know Hades I think she's really come out of her shell, meeting Lucas setting that off. We getmore glimpses into her past with Chase & Zedd & their history, every drop is so interesting.

Seriously, Tate, you’re now to blame for my house being a tip.

REVIEW: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tate you just tore my heart ❤️ out with this cliffhanger! 😭 This ending was completely unexpected for me, and you are not ready for it!

Anarchy starts off where book 2 left off as Hades is trying to save Lucas life while also investigating how this even happened in the first place. She is also investigating whether her ex Chase is responsible for the mess that is happening on Hade’s turf. Is or isn’t he is the question?

I like how we really see Hayden’s relationship with all the guy

Tate continues to keep me enthralled with the people of Shadow Grove. Just like the first book in the spin off of the MK series, Anarchy delivers in the plot and action, and the steam heats up as well.

Hades is still coming to terms with how she feels about her men, but also figuring out how to balance her emotions. She is the badass bitch, leader of a underworld empire, but she is still a women who is healing from past trauma and dealing with feelings for the men in her life. She is slowly real

Welp. This is what it looks like.

The words to describe this incredibly charming, dark, and especially sexy story have escaped me. This sequel had me just waiting for the other shoe to drop. I loved that this wasn't just a 'filler' novel. It legitimately focused on building up the story as a whole. While also including some very delicious scenes.

If you haven't read the first book yet....look away....this is your only warning.

Now that we have that out of the way, please allow me to elaborate...

Anarchy certainly lived up to 7th circle and kept the action coming. One of my absolute favorite things about this book is that I was able to laugh at the teasing in the group while they were dealing with all the other issues going on.

There was a lot of relationship development in this book. I liked in the last book that the three guys were not friends or anything before hand. During Anarchy the guys get to know each other better. It was interesting to see how well the three different personali

I'm gonna be completely honest and tell y'all that I rated this book 5 stars BEFORE I even read it. That's how high my expectations were.

Pfft. 🙄 Not enough stars can be given.

Tate James just keeps blowing me away with her vulnerable, yet badass FMCs and alpha, possessive yet sweet and observant MMCs. Unbelievable character development and ARCs. THEN you add in the fast-paced, thrilling, addictive plots.

In Shadow Grove the dead never stay dead and the past can kill you. Hades has discovered this. She has a ghost threat. The deadly kind. He's challenging her. Blowing up her businesses and properties. Pushing drugs on her streets again. Threatening and torturing those she considers hers. But she's no longer the scared teenage girl she once was. She's Hades. And no one betrays her or threatens what she has worked so hard for. No ONE.

Shadow Grove is officially the hottest, scariest, craziest place
