Happy Happy Release Day!!! Opposites Blog Tour : The Cellar (Opposites #2.5) by T.M. Smith

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?

The Cellar
an Opposites novella
Adult Dystoptian majorly M/M series
TTC Publishing November 23rd 2014

It's time to learn the truth about what happened that day in The Cellar.
Taryn and Thanos are the formidable Ambassadors of House Orion. Taryn was born into power, bred from birth to lead the people of Greece along with his sister Theresa, Thanos was never a part of his mother's plan. The son of a fisherman was not a suitable match for the son of Greece as far as their mother was concerned, but Taryn always takes what he wants. 
The Cellar is the story of how these two men met and fell in love, and what lengths Taryn went to, to ensure he kept his man. This novella also contains a more detailed accounting of what happened the night Raven and Tanis went for a walk on the beach, and the adult version of Mistletoe and Mayhem that was initially released as a free short through goodreads. 
The Cellar is the second novella in the Opposites series, the series should be read in order.
** Warning, Opposites is an Adult Dystopian majorly M/M series that contains explicit sexual content and relationships between gay, straight and lesbian couples. However, The Cellar is strictly a M/M novella **

My Rating: 4 of 4 Stars
(Based on the Short&Light Read Category)

This is not as steamy and not as naughty as The Library but it is just as devious and as erotic. This is the back story of Taryn and Thanos, two of the more imposing and stronger characters of the Opposites series. It does not leave much to the imagination but with only a few pages to read through and a whole lot of plot changes, this is the read that will change the course of the whole arc of such an outstanding series, this should not be missed.

This tells us of what exactly Taryn did to guarantee his beloved Thanos, a lowly fisherman's son, become the formidable partner and husband we are now more accustomed to. He is shown here in all of his young inexperience, we catch a glimpse of his insecurity of being not good enough for a Prince and also his determination to stay with his love forever. 

For the present, we move on to find out what these men and women do to make their Houses stable after the betrayal. We also get a step up on what may happen in the next installment, how the families deal with the changing course of lives when the big move finally finalizes. 

This is a real teaser and only managed to successfully get me more impatient for what's to come next.
