Overview

Sequel to Tigers & Devils

After an eventful and sometimes uncomfortably public courtship, Simon Murray and Declan Tyler settled into a comfortable life together. Now retired from the AFL, Declan works as a football commentator; Simon develops programs with queer content for a community television station.

Despite their public professional lives, Simon and Declan manage to keep their private life out of the spotlight. Their major concerns revolve around supporting their friends through infertility and relationship problems-until Greg Heyward, Declan's ex-partner, outs himself in a transparent bid for attention.

Though Simon and Declan are furious with Greg and his media antics, they can't agree on what to do about it. Declan insists they should maintain a dignified silence, but both he and Simon keep getting drawn into Heyward's games. Simon and Declan will once again have to ride out the media storm before they can return their attention to what really matters: each other.

Reviewed by Annie and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog In TIGERLAND, Sean Kennedy explores life after the HEA for Declan and Simon. While Dec retires from the sport and becoming a sports commentator and Simon works on his queer program on a TV station, they are trying to live a comfortable life. However, readers know that with these guys that’s not possible. When Dec’s ex wants to come out to his peers, it pushes Dec in an uncomfortable position. Neither of them can decide what to do and when it starts to eat away at their relationship, that’s where the real conflict is. In my opinion, it wasn’t a huge deal to me. Yes, Greg was doing it to gain attention but it seems to far outside Simon and Dec’s relationship that it shouldn’t have really mattered to them. What really surprised me about this book and actually turned out to be my favorite thing about the book is the involvement of Simon and Declan’s friends in the story. Fran and Roger aren’t new to the series but they never fail to make me smile. Usually in other Contemporaries you see the gay couple as the comic relief. Kennedy switches that around and makes straight people’s problems a funny and charming thing. The same goes with Lisa and Abe’s issues. So if you’re in the mood for a sweet, fun-filled M/M, then Sean Kennedy delivers in spades. I absolutely loved reading about Declan and Simon. *Review copy provided by publisher

This is the sequel to Tigers and Devils, and although I read (not listened too) that one first, you don’t necessary have too, but it would be a good idea. All the same charterers are in both books and all play an equally important role. This one starts off with Simon and Declan in a loving committed relationship several years past where we left them last time.   Declan has retired and Simon is now working for a television station.  Over the last several years they have managed to keep out of the spotlight until another big name football player has decided to retire and come out. This announcement has sent Simon and Declan world into a tail spin.  On top of that Abe and Lisa are on the outs and Fran and Roger are having a crisis of their own.  Can they get this all sorted out before Simon hits someone again?  I just love this series, I little long winded in parts but over all very good. The chemistry not just between Simon and Declan but all six of them is brilliant. You really feel that you are a part of this friendship, going through all these issues with them. We did leave it open ended so maybe another one is in the works? I haven’t checked.  I was given a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review by Crystals Many reviews. Narration – I just love the voice of Dave Gillies. I’ve heard him once or twice before and never disappoints.  Book 5 rainbows Narrator 5 rainbows Over all 5 rainbows
