Read Tigers and Devils (Tigers and Devils #1) Online Free - The most important things in Simon Murray’s life are football, friends, and film—in that order. His friends despair of him ever meeting someone, but despite his loneliness, Simon is cautious about looking for more. Then his best friends drag him to a party, where he barges into a football conversation and ends up defending the honour of star forward Declan Tyler—unaware that the athlete is present. In that first awkward meeting, neither man has any idea they will change each other's lives forever.
Like his entire family, Simon revels in living in Melbourne, the home of Australian Rules football and mecca for serious fans. There, players are treated like gods—until they do something to fall out of public favour. This year, the public is taking Declan to task for suffering injuries outside his control, so Simon's support is a bright spot.
But as Simon and Declan fumble toward a relationship, keeping Declan's homosexuality a secret from well-meaning friends and an increasingly suspicious media becomes difficult. Nothing can stay hidden forever. Soon Declan will have to choose between the career he loves and the man he wants, and Simon has never been known to make things easy—for himself or for others.

I am again going to be in the lonely camp of those who didn't love this book.
I was really expecting to love it and for it to be another The Locker Room for me, but alas, it wasn't exactly to my tastes.
What did I like about this book? Many things, really. I liked when the guys were playful and af...

This was so well done and realistic. The characters made mistakes and didn't always forgive or do the right thing. They met outside pressures and internal conflicts head on, with a determination to make a relationship work, and yet with very natural doubts and concerns. The plot was smooth and tr...

This is one of those goofy-grin books. You know, one of those where you're glad no one else is in the room to see the silly smile on your face. Well, that's how this book was for me. I found myself giggling and the silliest moments. Simon and Declan were so sweet and cute together.
I loved the ch...

I'm so glad I finally read Simon and Declan's story. I've had this book for a while now but for some reason kept passing it over to read other books. What a big mistake. This was a fabulous story that from page one to the very end had me totally hooked. Told in first person POV from Simon's persp...

Simon and Declan
I absolutely adored this book, which details the ups and downs in the relationship between Simon, a prickly, cynical and extremely cautious film festival manager and Declan, an Aussie Rules footballer, who is obviously in the closet, but all the things that Simon is not - warm,...

Si soy honesta y me atengo a lo que me ha gustado le daría dos estrellas, probablemente no las merezca, me ha pillado después de otro libro que he vivido con mucha intensidad y este me ha parecido aburrido y muy plano tanto en la construcción de los personajes como en el desarrollo de su relación...

Hours after my original DNF review....
So I couldn't let it go and decided to keep on trucking- I should've left it alone. Omg, these two: it was more of the same. Misunderstandings & makeups--> until the very end. It was so frustrating. As lovable as all the chatacters were, I can't go hig...

I enjoyed the heck out of this story. I was extremely apprehensive going in, mainly because many reviewers seemed miffed by the long length of the story and the lack of explicit sexy times – as it turns out neither of these things deterred my enjoyment in the slightest.
I loved the relation...

So I kinda liken this story to the movie Notting Hill.
You've got regular bloke Simon, who meets and falls in love with national, footy superstar Declan, where said relationship has to be hidden because Declan is not out. Eventually of course, everything comes to light and chaos ensues. S...
