Series: Tigers and Devils #3
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: Contemporary, MM
Eight years ago award winning Declan Tyler made history as the first ‘outed’ AFL player. Declan played out his contract with dignity, never stooping to the level of far too many other people, i.e. bigots. His love for smart aleck film/festival producer Simon Murray made everything good in his life possible. They also had to contend with a tell-all book written by a disgruntled ex-love/fellow player and Jasper Brunswick, a narcissistic hack according to Simon. Throughout one calamity after another Declan and Simon weathered each storm and grew to love each other more.
These days Declan is a weekend commentator on a local sports channel and more importantly he’s mentoring the GetOut program for gay teens. Simon continues to drive him nuts when he’s not diligently working on next year’s festival or film show.
Simon’s assistant Coby has been acting strange lately. Eventually he’s cornered by his boss and spits it out – he’s actually dating Jasper Brunswick, Simon’s arch enemy. When Simon goes ballistic Declan tries to sympathize, but he’s got bigger problems in Micah Johnson. The teen is looking to easily make the AFL. The issue is that the kid’s already been bullied in one school for being gay and moving doesn’t seem to have helped. As the first openly gay AFL player Micah would have a lot on his shoulders. At the moment he’s not handling anything well, he’s acting out something bad. So, once again the heat’s on. They can take it – a jerk and a brat. Nothing to it.
There is never, ever a dull moment for Declan and Simon. The boys are back for more mayhem and chaos in Tigers on the Run the hilarious third book in the wildly popular Tigers and Devils series. Brash, sassy Simon and his steadfast lover Declan are up to their eyeballs in obnoxious teens and smarmy writers. If you’re looking for a laugh out loud time look no further, Tigers on the Run fits the bill perfectly. Their problems are realistic and their answers sound, everything else is wild and woolly. Thoroughly enjoyable standalone, though to fully appreciate all the characters start with the first book. Enjoy.
