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

I definitely love this series so much more than the Madison Kate series. Hades is such a kick-butt heroine and I loved how her relationships with each guy developed in this book. Lucas is still my favorite and it was so fun watching all of the guys dealing with being in a relationship with the same woman. For how long this was, I would have liked a little more scenes for the external plot added instead of so much romance and steamy scenes with each guy, BUT THAT ENDING. What was that cliffhan

Surprisingly, my favorite of the 3 guys is the baby 18 year old LOL. LUCAS IS SO SWEET.

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

Actual rating 3.6 stars.
Good on Tate James for that ending! She hinted at something going on with Cass but I did not see THAT coming…

I’m really trying not to compare this series to Madison Kate but it’s kinda hard not to…
I feel like MK’s story had a lot more balance. She had school, friends, her revenge plot and then the plot which weaved throughout the entire series.
ALL that while also allowing us to get to know those characters.

For this series, we’ve only briefly seen Hades at work. T

Oh my fuck. My heart is in my throat and I want to throw my kindle across the damn room. I did not see the ending coming. I feel like there has to be a catch or there has to be something we’re not seeing. I can’t stomach this being final.

This book was both thrilling and frustrating. I didn’t like Hades near as much as I did in the first book, and I liked Zed, Cass, and Lucas even more. I don’t enjoy being titillated for long periods of time, and yes I am picturing Angela from The Office when I

"Two against twenty-six? Seems like unfair odds."
I quirked a brow. "Maybe we should do it blindfolded."

Out of all four books in the quartest, this was one was my least fave, but it still sits at a solid 4 stars! I really like the development we got between Cass and Hayden and also how Lucas was brought into the fold! This book set up a lot of hints for the rest of the series.

Also, Zed gave her a red limited edition bike because the colour matched the red soles of the Louboutins she always wear

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.'"

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.

I can't even begin to pick a fav of the 3 m

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! 😂💜

⭐⭐⭐⭐💫 WTF stars!

Tate James really know how to build anticipation like a pro!

Her cliffhangers are to die for and I really love that in this one, she didn't jumped head first into the RH aspect.

Hades relationship with the guys is unique and in different stages of their own life, but at the same time, they're starting to get close to each other as a group.

I also loved that the enemy ain't a secret guy to be found in the last book!
I love that he showing his face and his cards since book two!

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

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.

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.

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)

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!

You can always count on Tate James to end a book on a cliff hanger, swiftly resolve that cliffhanger in the next book...only to end in another cliffhanger. ;_;

I don't buy the cliffhanger in this though. No fucking way. This was only book TWO.

Character sound off and current feelings:
Hades - She remains fantastic and I adore her! Such a badass woman. The RH lover in me is frustrated with how dense she can be and her reluctance towards a certain second in command, but the rational me thinks her

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

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 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.
