The universe building is sublime. The History thought provoking and intelligent. The characters are fully dimensional and complex. Aiyan and his sister Aiya and put each into arranged marriages. Aiyan finds love at first sight with his match Kaden. There is instant passion and tenderness between the two men. Try as his sister might, Aiya cannot find an attraction between her and her beautiful fiancée Maeve. To Aiya's relief, Maeve has little romantic feeling for her either, as she lusts after the House's maid. Aiya has her own reasons for the lack of passion for her future other half. She becomes increasingly drawn to Sawyer - Kaden's adopted brother. Orphaned Sawyer was born of Outkasts and was taken into a great House when he saved the life of Kaden. The two brothers Sawyer and Kaden have a strong pure bond and Sawyer's coming out as a 'Opposites' does not change his brotherly feelings for him. This is why Kaden is my favorite character in the novel. His good heart and compassion make him instantly lovable and you can see why Aiyan is so smitten with him. The clever storyline illustrates how love is beautiful no matter the form it takes. Out two 'Opposites' Sawyer and Aiya form a sweet and romantic relationship against all odds. As Sawyer is a good natured guy, I really rooted for the pairs love. Many could learn from this story. It is a powerful piece of modern literature that I couldn't put down. A original, beautiful and profound book.
This is quite an interesting story of a future society who goes back to basics and also makes homosexuality the norm. Aiyan, Kaden, Aiya and Maeve are the main couples in this story and while Aiyan and Kaden have a perfect match Aiya and Maeve have to work at theirs, it doesn't help that neither woman is attracted to the other or that Aiya's eye keeps straying to a man. But, that is the least of their worries when a jealous servant causes trouble and a group of Outkast's seek revenge on the ruling Houses.
There are many people who play a part in this story and who's relationships we follow, Aiyan, Aiya, Kaden, Maeve, Raven, Tanis, Sawyer and Autumn along with their parents. It does get confusing at times as to who is doing what and who is speaking because the perspective changes very quickly with no warning, but you get used to the writing style and manage to keep up. There are some beautiful details that explain the history and culture and we get a lot of background details as to how the world now works. The actual storyline is interesting and keeps you reading as you want to know how it is going to be resolved, but then bam something new happens and takes it in a new exciting direction. There is some explosive sex with an array of couples, ranging from erotic M/M to sensual F/F to tender M/F, there is definitely something for everyone in this book.
I will recommend this to those who love a futuristic Earth, same sex societies, hot sex, great characters, a good storyline, danger, kidnapping, rescues and plenty of hot loving.

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.
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.
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.
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"!
