Football, friends, and film are the most important parts of Simon Murray's life, likely in that order. Despite being lonely, Simon is cautious about looking for more, and his best friends despair of him ever finding that special someone to share his life. Against his will, they drag him to a party, where Simon barges into a football conversation and ends up defending the honour of star forward Declan Tyler -- unaware that the athlete is present and listening. Like his entire family, Simon revels in living in Melbourne, Victoria, the home of Australian Rules football and mecca for serious fans. There, players are deemed gods and treated as such -- until they do something to cause them to fall out of public favour. Declan is suffering a horrendous year of injuries, and the public is taking him to task for it, so Simon's support is a bright spot in his struggles. In that first awkward meeting, neither man has any idea they will change each other's lives forever. As Simon and Declan fumble toward building a relationship together, there is yet another obstacle in their way: keeping Declan's homosexuality a secret amidst the intrusion of well-meaning friends and an increasingly suspicious media. They realise that nothing remains hidden forever... and they know the situation will only become more complicated when Declan's private life is revealed. Declan will be forced to make some tough choices that may result in losing either the career he loves or the man he wants. and Simon has never been known to make things easy -- for himself or for others.

I felt like the relationship progressed very suddenly between Declan and Simon, but the author made it seem pretty believable with Simon's honest narration. Other than that minor complaint that wasn't really a complaint, I would say this book was very heart-warming. I liked that it focused on the good and the bad between the two and emphasized the importance of communication and compromise. It was a very wholesome book. I liked it.
p.s. if you are looking for SMUT, this isn't the book for you. It has its sexy times, but it doesn't get too explicit and usually skips to the cuddling.
