Anarchy is the SECOND in a new Shadow Grove series. Several characters cross over to the Madison Kate series but it is not necessary to read MK's story first. HADES is a contemporary new adult reverse harem series, which means the leading lady has several love interests and never has to choose in order to find her HEA.

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

“I’m not asking for forever,
But you’ll give it to me anyway…”

Oh sh*t…Tate James DID IT AGAIN!!!! at this point I want to say I’m not surprised, but that would be lying, I mean that f*ing cliffhanger left me panting, I am so not OK, and I don’t think I can wait till June!!!

Ok so now that THAT is out of my system…OMG OMG OMG what a book!!!! After reading Madison Kate Series I couldn’t believe that Tate could come up with a story just as good, but I was so wrong, this series in my opinion is so mu

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

Hades is in the middle of a war with herself. Caught between who she is when her guns are holstered to her sides, and who she is behind closed doors. She’s been cut open, left vulnerable and has shown more cards than she would care to show.

“Anarchy,” by Tate James, is a reverse harem romance and book two in her Hades Series. It is every bit the role of disorder with no leader. It p
What's a girl gotta do to get a break? Having taken complete control of Shadow Grove and all illegal activity in the area. Instilled fear into even the most dangerous of males and Prez of MC's and gangs alike. Gained a rep that would have anyone rethink their life choices if they thought to muscle in on her territory. Life should be good for her to enjoy the spoils of her success.

Yet. Hades is now facong a ghost from her past, or copycat, who is determined to ruin all that she's accomplished, t

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! 😂💜

"'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.

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)

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.

Anarchy is a wild ride from start to finish and I had no idea what was going to happen next. Although I wanted to strangle them sometimes, there was also really good relationship development between the four main characters. I can’t pick a favorite guy and I’m on the edge of my seat for everything to be settled and happy someday. There’s a crazy cliffhanger which broke my brain, and plenty of action and drama. Tate James has once again delivered a great book!

Am I okay? No, I’m not. These cliff hangers are speeding up my life expectancy at this point.

This book was fantastic. The dynamics of the characters shift and I love it. We get more of all the men, which is definitely appreciated, but we get more of Hayden too. She has been through a lot and I have a feeling we’ve only scratched the surface as far as revelations of her past. We get to see her a little more vulnerable, and come to terms with being human again after shutting everyone out for so lo

Ok. Things are picking up.
The story is getting better and better.

That’s all I’m really willing to say right now.

I just can’t let that cliffhanger…we’ll for lack of a better word, hang like that.

I’ll update my thoughts when I’m done with the next book.

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'

This series has taken over my damn soul. I was only meant to read a few chapters and then BAM, it was the end!!! IM NOT OKAY!!! Read this series and die painfully with me because Tate did it again! Seriously, READ IT! the story line is amazing and these characters have sucked me in from the start. They're mad, I'm mad. They're hurting, I'm hurting.

Well this book was surely just as explosive and entertaining as the first one. Hades blast from the past is back with a savage obsession of blowing up Hades things and causing turmoil in everything touched by the TimberWolves. We do shockingly find out who this mystery villain is. Talk about a total 🤔😵‍💫🤯🤔🤯 moment. I think this part of the story was a little far fetched to me and I know given the entire context of the series that may not make sense but it’s easier for me to belive (view spoiler) ...more

I feel like it’s not right for me to write a review after every book because each of them end on it cliffhanger so idk. Also I stayed up until 5 AM last night reading this and I didn’t write my review right away so now the next day my brain is kind of blank on all the details and happening here. But I will say I do remember that I was not a fan of Z in this book his whole reason behind not liking Cass and Lucas was bogus. It shouldn’

First I want to say, this is another amazing read! Hades is all the things I could’ve asked for and imagined, strong, capable, rough around the edges and so freaking vulnerable inside. Her men each bring out a different side to her and I LOVE it. Second I want to comment on her men and how each one is so different and unique and yet at the core very similar to each other. Third I want to comment on the ending, without giving anything away, I ABSOLUTELY REFUSE to believe that that just actually h ...more

There is just something about the way Tate writes that is addictive!! I immediately connect with her characters, get emotionally attached and crazily possessive but Anarchy really topped them all!!!

Tate has me wound like a ball and honestly I cannot breath with that ending!!! I have no idea what possessed this women but I am not ok!!

Tate really puts the power in the hands of women when she writes, she doesn't make them inferior, she doesn't even make them equal, Tate puts

My toxic relationship with Tate

So, I admit being in a toxic relationship with Tate James. There it is... I said it. I'm a glutton for punishment. I know how cliffhangers drive me insane and my anxiety levels go through the roof but here I am; broken and destroyed.

Honestly, the Hades series has been Tate's best work. Anarchy was so on point and my book boyfriends were all I've ever wanted.
This picks up right after the first book and we jump into finding Lucas and tracking down the person hurting Hades. Is it really her ex come back from the dead or someone pretending to be him? There's more bloodshed and passion in this one and I binged right through it.

In the previous book, we saw Hades get close to Lucas and in this story we added Cass to the mix. Zed is still hanging around the periphery and I think we're close to seeing him join in the harem. There are plenty of spicy scenes

Hot damn I loved this book but the twists in this one really got me! I am dying to continue this story!
Isn’t Lucas blonde? Why does the model have dark hair?

This book was a fun ride but am I enthralled, on the edge of my seat, or rooting hard for the couple? Not really.
