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 View:

I love these novellas that fall in between the main stories in the Opposites series. They take an event mentioned in the main books and run with it and the common theme seems to be the parents – oh and sex! Last time round we had Cirian and Rian so it seems fitting this time to have Taryn and Thanos.

This was a couple that wasn’t supposed to be matched. Taryn’s mother thought that the lowly fisherman Thanos was nowhere near good enough for her son, she even went as far as to try and remove him from temptation but Taryn was just as sneaky as his mother and had his own plans for his future.

In The Cellar we get to see how the pair met, how they sneaked around to spend time with each and how they fell in love. We also see the often alluded to plan for them to be found in a more than compromising position in the cellar thus forcing Taryn’s mother to finally accept them.
