Tigers on the Run is by far my most favorite Tigers and Devils installment for oh-so-many reasons! Here, Simon Murray and Declan Tyler are still stronger than ever on their eight years being together (Wow! I’m getting good at rhyming!). Simon was still adorably snarky, cynical and sarcastic – traits I loved most about his character. I laugh out loud and giggled so many times with all of his antics here. I just really loved this guy! Declan Tyler™ is still swoon-worthy and always the perfect boyfriend! These two are totally one of the loveliest couples in the genre.
The story was solid-proof that their magic’s still there and I’m sure any fans of the series will enjoy it and won’t complain one bit about it. There are times that I feel that Simon was right about Declan taking everyone’s side except his side but yeah – I could relate more with Simon because I am a bit cynical at times, so at first I was totally on his side. I know this is getting weird but yeah Dec of course wanted the best for Simon, is all I’m saying but still…tsk.
I loved the angle about Coby! I thought he should’ve grovel more though. That traitor. I may have been hoping for a massive catfight but we all know that Simon is such a class act. LOL
“Didn’t Jesus forgive Judas? I like to think, in my own way, I am like Jesus.”
“Don’t forget,” I called after him. “Only one sugar. I’m sweet enough as it is.”
“Then we’ll make sure Jasper gets the poisoned chalice.”
Then we have little Micah Johnson and all of his shit. He’s just seventeen alright but he’s fucking annoying as hell! I still loved his part in the story though. It says more about Declan and Simon and the dynamic of their relationship. I’ve a feeling that we’ll be hearing more from him. A spin-off series Mr. Kennedy?
Now, now, now – that ending was exciting though. Am I right to assume that my boys will soon be shopping for cribs and little bassinettes? God, I hope so. I keep on hoping that they’ll have it by the end of the book but knowing Sean Kennedy – he’s surely a believer of happy endings but he just want to drag us all to that journey and that is totally cool with me so bring it!
What a fabulous follow-up and long overdue as it was – the wait was all worth it. It was just perfect! Thank you Mr. Kennedy!
