The line between retribution and vengeance is often just as thin as the line between love and hate.
Cillian feels his life was stolen from him and is out for revenge. Grieving and seeking retribution for the death of his twin sister, August is easy prey. Cillian latches on to his grief and feeds into it, using the Outkast as a weapon to strike out at the family that abandoned him. When August learns the truth behind his sister’s death, everything changes.
Hector arrives at House Gaeland for a wedding, only to wind up in the middle of an unexpected war between brothers. He finds himself inexplicably drawn to an Outkast with hair as fiery as his temper. The immediate, intense, and mutual attraction stirs up an entirely different set of issues. To be together, August and Hector will need to thwart the most evil of plans and accomplish the most daring of rescues, all before Cirian follows through with his threat to drop August off the side of a cliff.
The people of House Gaeland have endured much, and yet, there is more trouble on the horizon. A birth and a wedding are far too much happiness for the universe to allow, so to level the playing field, the devil must add his cards to the deck. Violence begets violence and Cirian is perfectly willing to take a dagger to his brother, if need be. Will he feel the same if the blood spilled belongs to someone much closer to his heart?
Snapped is the third 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.
*Warning* there is a brief mention of sexual assault, though not in detail.
I have not gotten to read the previous books in this series as of yet but nonetheless this book was still excellent and exciting. T.M. Smith made it easy to pick this book up and to be able to read it and not feel lost since I have not read the other books. I really love that about an author. There is times when we read a description of a book and know immediately that we want to read this book as soon as possible but do not want to have to go back to read the previous books first in order to get an understanding of what is going on, that is exactly what T.M. Did with this series.
I have to say that I am truly hooked on this series now though and that I will be going back to books one day two and reading them. It may be a little backwards but hatnis ok because I know from this one I will thoroughly enjoy them if they are even half as good as this one.
There are many different characters in this series that are covered in this book. And not really one specific set of characters that the book is primarily about but to be honest that is what makes this book so good. Because it does not allow the reader to get tired or bored with the characters because you are constantly getting different views of things happening from different petiole.
In the end his book in my opinion is about all these different houses and families coming together to try and fight evil and to make their families stronger. Each set of family is slowly intertwining to make one big family by different sets of individuals in the families mating and marrying.
Each of these people are affected by the evil of one man and each of them feel the depth of the pain and heartache that instilled on them but they all come together to get over what has happened to them and to help heal each other.
This book was adventurous and exciting. There was never a dull moment. I truly look forward to the next book in this series because I am seriously hooked. With this book and th multiple characters, T.M. Smith definitely made an impression on me with how amazing of an author T.M. Truly is. I am definitely a fan now. I look forward to more.
