Blurb: Young Australian Micah Johnson is the first AFL player to be out at the beginning of his career. Retired professional football player Declan Tyler mentors Micah, but he finds it difficult, as Micah is prone to making poor life choices that land him in trouble. Nothing Dec can’t handle. He’s been there, done that, more times than he’d like to admit. Being Simon Murray’s partner all these years has Dec quite experienced in long-suffering and mishaps.
As usual, Simon thinks everything is going along just fine until his assistant, Coby, tells him a secret involving an old nemesis. Simon and Dec’s problems mash together, and to solve them, they must undertake a thousand-kilometer round trip in which issues will have to be sorted out, apologies are finally given, and a runaway kid is retrieved and returned to his worried parents.
Review: The first book in this series was on sale, and I hadn’t heard about it before, but it sounded alright so I figured I would give it a shot… I am so glad I did! As soon as I finished the first book I moved on to the second and then, luckily for me, Tigers on the Run was just about to be released, which was good because I would not have been happy having to wait to get more of Simon and Declan!
Tigers on the Run takes the couple that we grew to love as we watched them grow to love each other, and showed us how to keep that love going. Did they always get along and everything was perfect? Nope. As a matter of fact, it seemed as though there was one thing after another testing them, but they always came back to each other.
I have to say that I really loved Jasper throughout this series. Although he was the cause of a lot of the turmoil in the story, the interaction either with Simon and Jasper, or just Simon in reference to Jasper, had me cracking up. You have to love a story that makes you laugh out loud, and I did numerous times throughout this one. But, Jasper isn’t the only one. Sean Kennedy not only has you loving Simon and Declan but the entire supporting cast as well.
I have read many books that are set outside of the US, and of course, have come across a few terms that I had no idea what they meant. After a while it can get a little frustrating, but with this one I happily had my phone at hand, ready to Google anything I wasn’t sure about, so while an enjoyable, fun and relaxing read, I even learned a little bit too!
