WW4BB & BNT Presents: A Review & Giveaway of Opposites & The Library by T.M. Smith

Posted by Amanda Masters on 6:05:00 am




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

Opposites by T.M. Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! when I read the synapses for this book I was totally intrigued, I don't usually read books like this but its unusualness is right us my ally. I love books that take people out of their comfort zones and totally shake them up and this book does that! while at the same time as giving you the sense that your in a safe and nurturing environment.


T.M. Smith is defiantly a creative and very brilliant writer, I was captivated by the characters and the story from the start! The idea that a world could exist where same sex couples are the norm was an amazing and ingenious idea to me, I of course being an opposite (a person who likes boys) would be considered an outcast but that is ok as this world was just too cool, as were the people in it.


I did have a little trouble at first keeping up with all the names of all the different couples and the different people as I found the names were a little too similar to each other. I totally got why the twins had similar names but thought the rest of the names all being alike was just over kill and made keeping track of who was who confusing.


I loved the storyline and so enjoyed reading this book, my favourite couples were Raven and Tanis and Aiyan and Kayden. I loved Raven and Tanis because they found love with each other against all odds, and Aiyan and Kayden were so fun and full of love and laughter.


This is defiantly a book for mature audiences only as it had a lot of Sexual Content but it is worth the read if you are willing.










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

The Library by T.M. Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow talk about steamy! In this short we get to see a more inside look at some scenes from the Opposite, centred mostly around the twins fathers Cirian and Rian. We also get to see more from some of the other couples as well as hear some more in depth discussions that were cut short in Opposites.


I really loved this story, it has a lot of love and passion and you can tell as it fairly drips from the very pages. T.M. Smith is brilliant and I can't wait for more to these stories.
