Product Description

2nd Edition

Appearances… can be deceiving.

Raven and Tanis are trying very hard to merge their vastly different lifestyles, but Tanis’s 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 visiting House Orion.

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 must be read in order. It is an adult, dystopian majorly M/M series that encompasses all manners of relationships (including M/F and F/F). In this world logic is irrelevant, love is key, and things get broken—just ask Aiyan and Kaden.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVED this one from start to finish!!! 1 September 2014
By Carly Rose (Carly's Book Reviews) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It felt like I waited forever for this story to finally be published! I am fully in love with all the characters in the Opposites series. I especially enjoy the diverse dynamics within the family, and how they struggle to accept each other at times, but the love is still there. Though their society is far different from our own in many ways, the relationships between the gay, straight and lesbian couples could easily mirror our own, and that makes it very true-to-life for me.

T.M. Smith delivers above and beyond with Tanis and Raven's story. The Priest and the Warrior have many challenges to face, not the least of which is their own expectations. They are so in love, almost from the very beginning, but it takes them this long to finally get into the groove of their relationship, and it takes them on quite the wild ride, let me tell you!

Aiya and Sawyer throw us a curveball at the very beginning, Aiyan and Kaden are as sexy as ever while they work through the repercussions of the happenings in book one, and the mystery of Cillian deepens. In the world of Opposites, well... let me just say that nothing is as it appears!

With action, adventure, and romance, this is a well developed storyline that starts out slow and crashes through boundaries as it picks up speed on it's way to an ending that stole both my breath and my heart. Appearances was well worth the wait!

My OFFICIAL REVIEW written for Carly's Book Reviews
4.0 out of 5 stars As the young heirs and their parents get to know each other better and fall deeper in love 28 April 2015
By Alina Popescu - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Just as hot and heavy as book 1, Appearances follows the story of the couples and extended families now all twined together in House Devi, House Orion, and House Gaeland. As the young heirs and their parents get to know each other better and fall deeper in love, the conflicts generated by their realities, past and present, fester till they reach the point of no return and explosions happen.

Aiyan and Kaden have to deal with what has happened to them and the aftermath, Aiyan’s bottled up feelings and his husband’s nightmares. Sawyer and Aiya have to figure out their Opposites relationship and prepare for a new baby, while still figuring out the way Aiya’s marriage and deep friendship with Maeve works into the relationship. Tanis and Raven have to fight their own demons as Tanis’ less than pristine pasts is thrown at his fiance.

The journeys the characters take will open up new worlds. The homes of House Devi and House Orion in India and Greece are the new settings for the complicated plot where the obvious threat is not always the biggest, hate and bitterness can hurt deeply, but so can weapons, and the future looks more uncertain as ever as all threads unravel and are wound up together again in a complicated knot.

Peppered with a few erotic scenes in every chapter, Appearances explores all manners of love and conflict in a dystopian future where the human race does not seem to have learned all that much from its past transgressions, yet they are stumbling on their way to evolving and accepting nature as it is. Definitely an interesting read for all those who like science fiction, adventure, and highly erotic scenarios.
4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars for this sexy read by a great author 8 September 2014

I loved this book and it seems like I've been waiting forever for it to be released and I wasn't disappointed. Before reading this book I highly recommend and suggest that you read Opposites the first book in the series as it gives you a better look into the characters and what's going on.

This book has it all. Lots of romance with hot steamy sex scenes, action, mystery, and tears. Aiyan and Kaden are going strong while still dealing with the after effects of what happened when Kaden was taken captive. They even manage to break some more furniture. These two have some of the steamiest sex scenes I've read between two men and I LOVE them.

Raven and Tanis are great together. They have their issues to deal with but their love for one another is strong. Raven has some interesting "dreams" in the book that seem to be more like visions and I'm anxious and worried to see what exactly they will mean for our characters.

Aiya and Sawyer's love for one another in a world where opposite relationships are forbidden is still going strong. They have something to be thankful and happy about but their news isn't met with happiness by everyone. The fallout from their news will result in the loss of someone close to them.

From the minute I picked this book up I couldn't put it down. I found myself wondering what Raven's dreams meant. I was and still am scared for one of my favorite characters and can't help but wonder what's gonna happen to them next. I cried ugly fat tears at a beautiful wedding and was left wondering what's gonna happen now that all these secrets are being found out now.

T.M. Smith congrats on another amazeball book. I honestly can't wait for the next one to come out. I promise to wait as patiently as I can for the next it done yet? If you dystopian reads with M/F M/M F/F scenes then I highly recommend this series.
5.0 out of 5 stars Super hot and super awesome 11 September 2014

I was a fan of The first Opposites book and The Library, so I had to get Appearances!
The story and character building done by T.M. Smith are fantastic. While the cast is large, I was able to keep the couples and parents separate. I also like that there are intros in the beginning of the book to explain about the world these people live in, that is very helpful if you should get mixed up on things.
I liked Raven and Tanis from the first book, and seeing that this book has more of them was good for me. Not to say that the list of favorites from book one aren't here, they are. Aiyan and Kaden(oh these two are great), Aiya, Sawyer, And Mauve. And I have such a love for Rian and Cirian as a couple.
The whole book kept me on my toes trying to see what the ending would be, I was WRONG! Not too sad about that really, I love when an author can make me think the story is going one way then I get goobsmacked with what really happens.
There are beautiful moments, hysterical moments and utterly heartbreaking moments. And the scorch factor is off the charts with Tanis and Raven!
Never one to give spoilers, so you will have to read about the people that I and others have come to love.
I will be so happy to continue reading in the series for as long as T.M. Smith feels like writing for them.
5.0 out of 5 stars intermingle and fall in love. However 30 April 2015
By Terri B. - Published on
Imagine a world ruled by seven families – monarchies, so to speak. Present day ideas, portrayed in a world that is completely opposite of what is known. Babies are genetically engineered to be homosexual no matter the gender. Families are husbands and/or wives. Men or women liking the opposite sex are considered Outkasts. Dr. Smith has ordained these thoughts into the psyche of the populous. His legacy will be tested time and again.

Marcus, the overseer of the genetics – map testing to confirm the child is gay takes matters into his own hands in order to follow Dr. Smith’s tenets to the letter.And, normal conception and birth are the antithesis of Dr. Smith’s rules for procreating and populating the Earth.

Families from the seven houses that rule, intermingle and fall in love. However, not all matches are what they should be. Aristocracy mixing with commoners, high-born females falling for a man, and a prince that falls in love with a priest.

Delirious laughter and dangerous antics added to the mix brings about the telling of a land now filled with love, tolerance, and hope. Through harrowing obstacles, to finding a love like no other, these characters bring joy to everyday living.
