I liked this. A lot. I need more of these guys.

Exactly what I wanted. It's time to visit Dec and Simon.
Quite nice 'missing scene' from Tigers and Devils -- but it didn't really add anything to the story though. I mean, it wasn't like it was truly significant for me, since the joy was always from Simon's perspective. I was actually expecting an update on them, since Simon and Declan were one of the first MM couples I read ...

But hey, at least Sean Kennedy wrote something. So there, 3-stars for that!

A little extra snippet for Tigers and Devils in Declan's pov. Nice little freebie to be found on authors site.

One of my favourite books so always nice to read an extra scene.
I liked seeing Declan's view for a change, he's far more contained than Simon. There's a nice little scene with his brother and I liked seeing his impression of Simon; but it did lack Simon!

Nothing much on it's own, but I'll greet any extra for this verse with grabby hands :D

I've always wondered about this scene back in the first book – and with Dec finally showing up at Simon’s place, ofcourse I was sighing with relief with that back then. I thought he’d be an asshole about his “outing” – it’s always a pleasure reading back in the past when you already know a wonderful future was in store for them. ^^

3.5 È stato interessante vedere, almeno per una volta, il POV di Dec. Bel momento fra fratelli.

Very short little out take story from Tigers & Devils set (view spoiler)

I have just finished a re-read of Tigers & Devils and to have this little snippet, from Dec's point of view and without Simon's introspective sarcasm, was really well timed.

Not too much to say other than this was a very short story giving us more perspective on Declan's tendency to run away from his problems. It was a nice complement to the series.
3.5 stars. Surely now that Australia has voted in Marriage Equality, Dec will ask Simon to marry him...or vice versa?? One of my fave couples ever, but this was not Dec's finest hour. 😕

Family support is a WONDERFUL thing no matter what you "fear" in your life. If your family has your back, your life is a better, safer place... so many in this world don't have that support, so if you are one of the lucky ones, like Dec, then take that step to confront your fear and know that they will be there to catch you if at first, you stumble!

yay!! this was nice, brief, & reminds me of how I get when anxiety is just too damn much hope much I break, crack & flake out. so goodie.~ ain't out you're just outed. ...

so anywho t seems that I love this fictional universe even though I'm not fandom-like. this series comforts me. probably the mix of fame, snark, humor, growing up, the comings & goings, and sex dreams makes me feel satisfied. but that's the series overall and so because this is mainly a scene that would be ha

It was short but it wasn't what I was expecting. I thought this would be about the time Derek broke up with Simon. I guess I wasn't reading the blurb correctly from the excitement that there is a new short I didn't know about.

It was nice to read from Derek POV from time to time. His voice was certainly from straight-forward than Simon's.

While it doesn't "add" to the story, what this fantastic little freebie does provide is an insight into Dec. For me, it's always nice to get a fresh perspective but it also doesn't feel forced or out of character- and the rest of the series I now have a new perspective on

3.5 stars.

It's not a complete story and it doesn't stand alone. But for fans of the series, it's a lovely insight into what Declan was thinking after he was outed.

I'd love to have more of Declan's POV. *hint hint*

Short peek into Declan's head while everything was going down in the main book.

What's there to say? I love Simon and Dec!
This was so short that you can't even call it a short story. Lol. Nice view into Declan's head, though. It's like a tiny little deleted scene.
