Opposites/ The Library Blog Tour : Reviews & Giveaway
Hi everyone! I have a stop on the Opposites/ The Library blog tour today. There is a review of both books and a giveaway for you all.
In the year 2081 our planet survived global warming of an apocalyptic scale. When the dust settled and the water receded Dr. Anthony Smith, one of only a few hundred survivors of GWI, started society anew. Having come to the conclusion that injudicious breeding played a huge role in the destruction of Earth as we knew it in the twenty first century, he worked closely with other survivors to isolate the Dionysus gene. This gene has the ability to manipulate human DNA to ensure that all male children be born gay, and all female children be born lesbians. A new society is born.

In the year 2300 Dr. Smith’s descendants are ushering in the twenty fourth century having maintained control of the government that still rules society. Twins Aiya and Aiyan are preparing to meet their matches and take control of House Gaeland, the current ruling House. But not everything is as it seems.

Love is Love.. it knows no gender and doesn’t conform to restrictions and boundaries. Aiyan has found his soul mate in Kaden, the prince of House Devi that he is matched with and eventually marries. But when the person Aiya falls in love with tests the boundaries put in place after GWI, all hell breaks loose. And in the midst of one secret unraveling, another will emerge. There is a growing anomaly that threatens to destroy over two hundred years of progression. This anomaly is known as Opposites.

*WARNING* Opposites is a majorly M/M New Adult novel that contains explicit sexual content and relationships between gay, lesbian and straight couples.
My Review
 In this new world everyone is married to someone of the same sex. Oppossite pairings are forbidden and against the law. Aiya an Aiyan are set to marry their matches and for Aiyan he is set with his dream match. For Aiya she doesn't feel the same way. She likes her match but not in that way. Sawyer a new guy makes her heart race and even when she knows it is forbidden she still wants him. Besides trying to hide their feelings a new danger has rose up and all may be in danger of losing their lives.

I lve the concept of this story. veryone being with someone of the same sex and everyone being testing to see who would make the best children is just so different. There is lots of characters to get to know as you read this book and at first I was a little confused by them all but once I got it all sorted out I was ready to see more of all of them. Aiya and Aiyan have a special connection and that is a connection they share with the ones they love. While Aiya tries to hide her feelings for Sawyer Aiyan is falling more in love with his husband. However not everyone is happy with the way things are going. They plan to tear apart the happy couples and change how the world is run. There is plenty of love scenes in this book so if same sex scenes disturb you this book may not be the book for you. There is plenty of action as well as they have to fight to protect those they love. Jealousy, love and so much more make up this fascinating world and I look forward to reading more about all the couples. If I would change anything it would be to concentrate more on just a few couples but this book was introducing all the characters so it was understandable.

THE LIBRARY (An Opposites Novella)
The Library, an Opposites Novella, by TM Smith
Three gay couples run amuck in this short story where clothing, beds, even four walls are all optional!

Want to know what happened that night in the library?
Cirian and Rian had a fight in the library and Rian ends up naked on the desk, on his back, at Cirian's mercy.

Want to know how far things went with ice cream?
A romantic evening by the fire feeding his husband ice cream leads to a lot more than heavy petting for Aiyan and Kaden.

Want to know what was going on when those birds fled?
Travelling hundreds of miles, battling the rebels and then travelling back to House Gaeland will take it out of you. But when Tanis wants something, he takes it. Raven is about to be bent over a tree!

A Note from the Author: I've taken three scenes from Opposites that were cut short and elaborated on the shenanigans that ensued. I also focused more in the beginning on the relationship between Cirian and Rian, to give readers a chance to know them and their inner workings better.

**Warning, The Library is a novella set in the same world as Opposites. It's an adult dystopian M/M novella that includes consenting and explicit sexual relationships between gay couples**

My Review
This short gives you the insight on the some of the couple you only gets pieces of in Opposites. You get to see just what all went on in the library, how Rian calms Cirian down, a look back to how they became married, fun with ice cream and another special couple shares there love as well.

I really liked this insight to how Rian and Cirian got together and how much they really care for each. I love getting to know Cirian more as in the first book I wasn't sure if I was going to like him much. He never seemed to have a soft side but in The Library you see what really makes him tic. He is a really caring guy and you even get  to see a funny side to him as well. Raven and Tanis shouldn't be together but Tanis will not take no for an answer. Raven can't help but want him back even when he knows it can't be. You really get lots of hot M/M action in this one and it only makes you want more of these characters.

Author bio:
A military brat born and raised at Ft. Benning Georgia; Smith is an avid reader, reviewer and writer. She now calls Texas home from her small town on the outskirts of the DFW Metroplex. Most days you can find her curled up with her kindle and a good book alongside a glass of something aged and red or a steaming cup of coffee!

At 42 years young, she's decided to enter the next phase of her life by adding the title of "author" to her list of accomplishments that includes single mom of three disturbingly outspoken and decidedly different kids, one of which is Autistic. Smith is and outspoken advocate for Autism and equal rights for the LGBTQ community.

Her Opposites series is based outside the normal parameters of social acceptability, examining a 'what if'... What If to be gay or lesbian were the norm? What if to be straight labeled you as an Opposite and made YOU the Outkast?
