I thought the Submission Series was done. It was over. I had already said my goodbyes to Jonathon and Monica. I feared that another book would make it harder to say goodbye again. The first time was difficult enough, as it was.
Once I started reading CODA, I found that this is not your normal wrap-up of the HEA that we all knew they already had. No, this was so much more. This was a view into their every day world. The joys and heartaches that happen after the HEA. Disagreeing and compromise over a house they bought - feelings about Jonathan's health that were bottled up and stowed away, until that bottle nearly explodes are just a few examples.
Amongst all of these day-to-day life struggles, there are poignant moments that Jonathan and Monica experience: shared laughs, Insanely sensual sexual exploits, an intensely heart-breaking loss. Yes, we all get another HEA at the end, but not the kind you expect. Their HEA is something you can imagine, in your head, every time you think of them. CODA is an unanticipated finale to a song, that allows the music to reverberate with you long after the song is over. This ending will allow me to cal up imagery and feelings for the remainder of my days. That brings this book right up there with the literary classics, a timeless story that makes you think, wonder and feel without end.
I would like to add a personal note to this review thanking CD Reiss for a particular event in the book (no spoilers). The way you described this event was a cathartic experience for me. Were tears shed? Yes. Lots of them. Did it bring up feelings that I often wish I could forget? Of course. But, just like life, I pushed through the experience and came out the other side with at least some of that void filled. Filled with your words, inspired by the beauty of the story, and knowing life is still a fantastical journey with many more experiences ahead, some of our choosing, some outside of our control. I just wanted to say thank you to CD for helping me in a way more than anything else has, with a few carefully placed words, phrases, and chapters that brought back the music, the symphony in my head.
Here's the thing. This book felt very very repetitive to me. I've read the whole SOS series and I LOVED IT. I mean Jonathon is one of the reasons Id love to dip my toes in his water. But this, it felt like was on a loop to me. The first half was both of them worrying basically over the same thing just from different points of view and neither of them was talking, I mean really communicating , so nothing was getting fixed. Then it was like BAM! Our jonathon was back. The King. The Master. And thank God. Man have we missed him. And it was great to have him return!
But I'm still left wondering- did the Swiss thing work out? Did I miss it? Cause I'll be honest, I started to skim. Then I got mad that I was skimming a damn CD Reiss book. That's like committing a carnal sin.
I just don't know how I feel about this book. I love that we got their ever after. I love that Jonathon came back. And I love that Monica's career was doing stuff. But there was just so much worrying about everything under the sun, which im sure is real, but it held the book back. It became too much of the focus of the book instead of the dynamic duo of Jonathon and Monica.
So I imagined we were getting a sweet little Happily Ever After with this final book. Two hundred pages of babies & puppies & and a rocking sex life in a magical land where babies never cry and no one argues over why the dog peed on the carpet again.
Um, not so much.
Nope. Coda is a real book. Gut wrenchingly real. Painfully real. Honestly real. And for that, thank you. Because we've all read the swan song finale books that are in the end, not that satisfying. Because we think we want 200 pages of unicorns, but when we get them, we end up kinda shrugging and saying, well that book wasn't really necessary.
No one will say that about Coda. This final book made me fall in love with Jonathan and Monica as a couple all over again. I will miss them, but I'm very content with their ride into the sunset.
