Series: Opposites #1-2.5
Author: TM Smith
Genre: M/M Romance, Dystopia, Science FictionAbout the series…
Hello everyone and welcome to the re-release tour for the Opposites series. When I first released this series I was a new Author, self published, going the road all by my lonesome. Regretably, I made some mistakes. Thankfully, the editor I found when I started writing my second series, The All Cocks stories, offered to go back and clean up the Opposites series for me. The books have been extensively edited for errors and faults in the storyline. Some content that bordered on overly descriptive has been removed, but new content to better explain the characters and/or the world has been added. So, if you read these books when they initially released, you simply must read them again, they really are better than before.
A little bit about the series… Opposites is an Adult Dystopian majorly M/M series that contains explicit sexual content and relationships between gay, lesbian and straight couples. There are brief scenes of violence, each novel contains mostly M/M content and storylines, but there is M/F content as well. The companion novellas are strictly M/M and super spicy!
Again, thank you for stopping by today and I hope you’ll go grab your copies of the books. Thanks must be given to the lovely ladies at Enticing Journey for always setting up these top notch book tours. I hope you enjoy the show!
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.**

*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**
Appearances, can be deceiving.
Raven and Tanis are trying very hard to merge their vastly different lifestyles, but Tanis issues with his own past could prove to be more than their fragile relationship can handle. Is their love for each other strong enough to weather the oncoming storm?
Aiya and Sawyer have fought hard to be together in a world where Opposite relationships are generally forbidden. Yet, they are still forced to keep their relationship a secret while they are outside the walls of House Gaeland.
Everyone assumes that the only threat lies outside their walls, the group of rebels led by Cillian. But something is happening within House Gaeland, something that hasn’t happened since GWI. And with all the attention focused on that, their guard is down. An evil that was under their nose all along strikes, and someone will make the ultimate sacrifice to save another.
Appearances is the second book in the Opposites series, the series should be read in order.

Kaden led Aiyan through the palace and up several flights of stairs to a tower that held several rooms, but was sufficiently closed off from the rest of the palace. Kaden had described his home to him in previous conversations, so Aiyan knew this was the area of the palace that Kaden shared with his brother, Sawyer. The main room was a wide open space with arched stone openings for windows. Billowy curtains flowed from floor to ceiling, dancing with the breeze that flowed freely through them.
There was a small table off to one corner and a hall that led to another set of stairs. They passed Sawyer’s room as they headed for the stairs and a quick climb up brought them into a circular shaped room with the same windows and curtains as in the room below, just smaller in height. Aiyan knew they were now inside one of the highest structures of the palace that held one of the ornate crosses Rian spoke of just above their heads. What caught Aiyan’s attention though, was the bed. It was an overgrown pillow. The largest, fluffiest, tallest mattress Aiyan had ever seen sat against the wall in between two of the windows. Several hand sewn blankets were piled on top and about a dozen more average sized pillows of various shapes and material overflowed at the head of the bed.
About six feet above the bed, running from window to window along the top, was what looked like a shelf but it stuck out from the wall about three feet. It had the same white, gauze like material that the curtains throughout were made of streaming down and covering the bed, almost secluding it from the rest of the room. He turned to find Kaden walking around the perimeter of the room lighting candles and saw that he’d already taken off his shirt and shoes, leaving him in just his thin linen pants that utterly betrayed just how aroused his lover was.
Kaden slowly walked toward Aiyan, stopping just shy of touching him. He ran the tips of his fingers along the hem of Aiyan’s shirt before pulling it up and over Aiyan’s head, dropping it on the floor at their feet. Kaden ran his hands up Aiyan’s arms from his wrist to his shoulders, then down his chest before resting them on Aiyan’s hips. Aiyan slid his shoes off and kicked them backward, out of the way, closing his eyes as he wrapped his arms around Kaden’s neck, pulling him close and resting his forehead against Kaden’s.
The room grew darker as the sun started to go down, the candle light bathing them in a soft glow. The music outside had grown quiet and soft as well, so Kaden did what he’d been dying to do earlier, he began dancing with his husband. Wrapping his arms around Aiyan, their moves were slow to start. Gently swaying side to side, staying wound in each other’s arms, they moved slowly with the music filtering in the open windows with the first light of the moon.
Their movements were synchronized and fluid; the longer they danced the more sensual they became. Aiyan brought one hand around and traced his fingers over Kaden’s jaw, then across his bottom lip, grazing down his neck to his chest, gently circling one nipple. He continued to rub Kaden’s nipple with the pad of his thumb while leaning in and running his lips across Kaden’s. His lips and his touch were both barely whisper’s on Kaden’s sensitive flesh, making him shiver. Aiyan continued his gentle ministrations with his hands and lips, adding a more pronounced sway of hips to his movements.
Kaden leaned his head back, silently offering his neck to Aiyan’s wanton lips. Aiyan smiled as he licked a path along the vein that pulsed on the side of Kaden’s neck over to his Adam’s apple, gently sucking the sensitive skin there into his mouth. Kaden’s knees bent and his back arched as he moaned loudly. Aiyan wrapped one arm around his back and grabbed a handful of Kaden’s hair with the other hand, pulling him as close as he could without being inside of him.
Kaden’s head was swimming as all the blood rushed between his legs, he leaned in and took Aiyan’s face in his hands, bringing their mouths together in a fierce kiss that shared all the longing they were both feeling in that moment. Lips, tongues and hips rutted together for several long moments until they had to pull apart or pass out from lack of oxygen. Kaden looked into Aiyan’s golden brown eyes, his nostrils flared and his breathing was labored. Aiyan’s kiss swollen lips still glistened with the moisture from that intense kiss. They were red, wet and begging for more attention.
