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 – Book: I reviewed the book previously here.
Review – Audio: I went back and read my review from 2015 and decided that there was not much I would change…except, where did I get the idea there would be another book? I know the guys have not yet legally married, as it was not legal in Australia, but something led me to be convinced that another book was imminent. Oh well, maybe wishful thinking, or maybe David Gillies gave such a stellar performance that didn’t leave anything on the table.
Once again, I am totally impressed with how amazing his portrayal was of both Declan and Simon…and even the whining brat, Micah. Not completely on board with his female voices, Fran especially sounded like a grandmother, however it took nothing away from the story. But that is neither here nor there as this audio was everything and more than I could ever hope for two of my favorite characters. I am very thankful that Sean Kennedy chose a proper Australian for the second and third audiobooks, and if David ends up doing book one, I will go back and listen to that one, too.
Overall Impression: I loved it!
