Product Description

2nd Edition

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 or 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.

Opposites 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.

Opposites was a little different than any other romance I’ve read. The difference had nothing to do with the sexual preferences of the individuals or the dystopian nature of the book. The difference is in the fact that there isn’t one central couple. There are several. This makes for a bit of head hopping which I found a little confusing in the beginning as I was trying to get to know the main cast of characters. As the characters developed and the story moved forward it became much easier to follow and distinguish the different character’s voices. I grew to really like them.

That being said, this dystopian future is based on the failure of current society. It was decided that the only way for humans to survive was to change their DNA making them all gay. A small faction of society are outkast opposites. This would lead you to wonder how they procreate if all of society were to turn gay. At least, I had to wonder that. It makes for some interesting family dynamics. Each child born has two mated mothers and two mated fathers. Within this family dynamic the males and females are matched for the purpose of procreation. All children born are the children of the two couples. This very dynamic was part of what caused a bit of delay in my solidifying the characters in my mind. Opposites revolves around the meeting and marriages of two royal twins, Aiya and Aiyan. The two are matched each to another royal house’s family. This makes for a very large extended family involved in the two weddings. You have the parents of the twins, the parents of Maeve, Aiya’s betrothed and the parents of Kaden, Aiyan’s betrothed.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars and a Top Recommendation for Opposites! 8 October 2016
By Carra at Making it Happen blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Let me start off by telling you that I don’t normally read or listen to stories in the dystopian genre. I just have a really hard time getting into them, and usually find my attention drifting. With Opposites, that was so very not the case, and actually the…opposite…was true (sorry, couldn’t resist!). Take the world as you know it, where gays and lesbians are a clear minority, and reverse it—all the way to the point where heterosexual barely even exists. Can you imagine such a world? T.M. Smith did, and it is brought to life perfectly here in Opposites-so well in fact, that as you read it becomes very easy to become immersed in it and believe that somewhere this world really can be found.

This story is very much character driven, and those characters are as unique as the world in which they live. Their individuality is detailed and distinct, making them come alive in these pages…and the further into the story I got, the more wrapped up in them I became. Emotions between couples are clearly intense, and this shows not just in their interactions with each other-both in and out of the bedroom-but also with the other couples, families and other supporting characters. I was particularly drawn to Aiyan and Kaden as well as Raven and Tanis.

With Aiyan and Kaden, they are drawn to each other like powerful magnets from the moment they lay eyes on each other. Their match is unusually powerful, as is the relationship Aiyan shares with his twin sister Aiya. Aiyan and Kaden together define sensuality, and their intimate scenes are wild and a bit…destructive ;-)

When it comes to Raven and Tanis, angst and turmoil rules as Raven becomes torn between his duties and his feelings for Tanis, making their relationship especially tumultuous—and turning them into my favorite couple of this story even though much of this book is centered on Aiya, Aiyan, and their spouses.

With the drama introduced when the Opposites anomaly is thrown into the spotlight at House Gaeland, it sends events spiraling into unforeseen territory and you couldn’t have dragged me away from this story at any point (and heaven help anyone who might have thought about trying). In the end, we are left with questions and unrest, and it will have you desperately seeking the next book in the series just like I was.

While I might not normally care for this genre, Opposites blew that out of the water and was a 5-star read for me—and is my absolute top recommendation in the M/M dystopian genre (and the dystopian genre in general). I highly recommend this to any fan of LGBT romance in general, and if you’re a dystopian fan as well, then you’re going to be twice as happy. This story is meant for readers 18+ for adult language and some very naughty sexual content.

Audiobook thoughts: Greg Boudreaux does a smashing job with the narration of this book. His character voices are distinctive and consistent throughout the story, and they are also consistent with the two novellas from this series that he also narrated, The Library and The Cellar. It’s the mark of a truly talented narrator when I can hear a character’s voice and know exactly who is speaking without having to be told in the story. He brings this world and these characters to life beautifully, making it very easy for me to clearly picture everything in my head. 5 stars for this performance, and this is one audiobook-and series-that I’ll be listening to again and again! *Note-I do suggest that you read the book before listening to it.  There are a lot of character POV changes, and from my perspective it helped me to have a general idea of what was going on before listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing first series by a new author! 11 September 2014
By Melissa Kleen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the first book in T.M. Smith’s debut series also called Opposites. This was the first book I had read from this author and the first that contained f/f relations. My favorite part of this book is the world it is set in. In 2081 the Earth was flooded due to Global Warming and the population seriously decimated. One of the surviving scientists decided that injudicious breeding was the downfall of the planet and to combat this he decided to manipulate the gene code so that all babies would be born gay or lesbian.

Now 200 years into the future there are seven surviving countries split all over the world and many modern conveniences have disappeared. These seven countries are ruled by seven houses which in turn are ruled by The Order. While this all sounds very confusing once you start reading you become completely immersed in this new culture.

This book was so amazing to me because not only was the author able to create a new world but she was able to write a book with six main characters and have you love all of them. I think being able to experience the story through the POV of many different characters allowed me to truly immerse myself in the story and the plight of the main characters.

There are a lot of intimate relations in this book of all varieties (m/m, f/f and m/f) so if that offends you then do not read this book. However, I would say that the intimacy helps you realize the depth of the bonds between some of the characters and gives the reader insight into the relationships.

Overall I loved this book and am eagerly awaiting the second book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting ideas and beautiful love stories 29 August 2013
By Alina Popescu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The idea of this book is really interesting, a future version of Earth where gay couples are the norm and being straight is considered an anomaly. It's a nice reminder that "normal" is just a concept defined by majorities and we shouldn't take it too seriously, nor rush when labeling something as "abnormal."

I do believe love is just that, not bound by gender and circumstances, and couple dynamics in this book draw you in. But it all seemed a bit rushed. There's a bunch of new names (and variations of them) right from the start, a lot of background details on the post apocalyptic world and its rules, and so many love stories that develop at the same time, that I think some parts of the story needed more attention. The version I downloaded from Amazon also needed some more editing, but I could overlook that.

The 2 mothers + 2 fathers family unit is quite fun to explore. Raven and Tanis are by far my favorite couple and there's a lot of potential for this story to evolve in future books. I am extremely curious to see how the new ruling family will interact.

5.0 out of 5 stars An engaging idea 8 August 2013
By SGD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is one of those books that has something for everyone. There's f/f, m/m and m/f. The first half of the book, you're introduced to most of the characters, it's a little confusing, but necessary. Then the love begins and it's hang on with both hands!

In a world where straight is wrong, relationships form between couples and surprises lurk behind every castle corner. The author went into great detail and obviously did her research. I found myself intrigued by the two MC's as their love began to unfold.

The sex scenes were hot but not overbearing and the love between the couples shone brightly. If you're wanting something different and out of the norm, check out "Opposites"!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! MUST READ!!!! 28 June 2014
By Paul Berry - Published on Amazon.com

Opposites (Book one) by T.M. Smith

The global apocalyptic of the year 2081 and the planet actually survived it. Dr. Smith, one of the few survivors of the GWI started a new and amazing new society which I enjoyed so much. He believed that the breeding of straight people led to the destruction of civilization so he started a new society. He was able to manipulate the Dionysus gene. This new gene has the capabilities to manipulate human DNA to make sure that all male babies were born gay and all female babies were born lesbian and this is now the new world he created.

In the year 2300 Dr. Smiths descendants are maintaining the control of the government that still rules this amazing and unique society. The Twins Aiya and Aiyan have to meet their love matches and take over the House Gaeland but not everything is as it appears. Aiyan has fallen in love with his soul mate Kaden and his match is everything he has ever wanted and he marries him. The person Aiya falls for will test everything that was put in place after GWI. There is a group that threatens everything this new society stands for and they're called....OPPOSITES!!!

When I came across this novel, I fell instantly in love with it, come on, a world where being gay is the norm and being straight is the abnormal. I would love to live in a world that T.M. Smith has created and she is so detailed and descriptive with this new society that it spoke to me in volumes. Her writing of these fascinating and beautiful characters is out of this world and she makes the reader take such an interest in them and you want to know them on a personal level and to me that is an amazing author. What I loved most is the pairing that she did with these characters that you feel...oh wow these couples totally belong with each other. The time she has invested in them has paid off so well as they are some of the best that I have ever read about.

T.M. Smith wrote in such detail about the people and this new society so well that the reader will completely understand this unique and beautifully new world. The hot sex scenes were so brilliantly done and so steamy that you will find yourself re-reading those scenes...OMG...HOT....HOT!!! I loved the characters of Tanis and Raven, they hit me in such a beautiful way, I adore them and their pairing. When Aiya and Maeve match up is when things get complicated and this is when the OPPOSITES appear as Aiya actually falls for one of them and things start to get messy. There is a huge amount of characters as the couples who match up actually produce heirs and so on but the author does it with such great finesse and very detailed writing that you will not get confused by any means.

This novel is very fast paced and so well written and OPPOSITES is the first book in the series and at the end of this novel you will be dying for book 2. Appearances (Book 2) is out this summer-2014. Everyone needs to read this novel...OPPOSITES by T.M. Smith as it's an amazing and brilliant piece of writing and how the author created such a unique world filled with the most fascinating characters. I can't recommend this book enough and if I could give it more than 5 stars, I so would be. If you like reading about hot characters, unique worlds, Dystopia and beautiful and hot love scenes than OPPOSITES is the book for you!!!!
