And will all the couples return home still together?
Paris A to Z is the sort of novella that wraps up loose ends while providing more on favorite characters. I love all three couples featured in this book (although the emphasis is on Zach / Angelo and Matt / Jared rather than Cole / Jon), and was looking forward to spending more time with them. Paris A to Z features chapters narrated by Zach and Matt, which although it may seem odd, is a device Marie Sexton has used before--in The Letter Z, which was narrated by Matt and Angelo. As a storytelling device, the dual narration is both effective and frustrating at the same time. It's interesting to see two different perspectives on the events of the story, but it leaves out a lot of information since the reader never gets to see what Jared, Angelo, Cole, and Jon think about anything.
The plot involves a lot of emotional drama. Both Zach and Matt are happy with their men, but they both have to deal with confusing and upsetting reactions to the happy husbands-to-be. I admit I found Matt's constant jealousy toward Cole a little annoying. He knows Jared loves him, but he can't stop thinking about Jared's past with Cole. Matt's attempts to deal with his jealousy were amusing, but after a while I wanted him to get over it already. I found Zach's conflict to be a lot more compelling. Zach adores Angelo, so he feels incredibly guilty about his confused reaction to being around Jon again. Zach and Angelo's relationship is complex, often difficult, and maybe different than a lot of romance readers expect. For that reason, the conflict rang a lot more true to me than it might have if another character were experiencing the same conflict. Paris A to Z isn't my favorite of the Coda books, but I still enjoyed it. The relationship between Zach and Angelo always pushed the limits of my romance comfort zone, which I think is a good thing. Any book featuring them always makes me think and, even better, makes me feel. For that reason alone I'm always happy to revisit them. I wouldn't suggest readers start here if they're not familiar with the series, though. Anybody new to the Coda boys should start with Jared and Matt's book, Promises. It's a series well worth reading!

Cole and Jon are getting married. Leave it to Cole to do it up -- bringing all the boys to Paris (all expenses paid) for the ceremony. The book is written from Zach, Angel, Matt and Jared's perspectives, but the main focus is on Zach and Angel, and Zach's relationship with Jon, even when we hear the other characters' perspectives. And this, in my opinion, was where the book fell short for me. I wanted to know more about Jon, and how he and Cole were dealing with the issue of the resolution of Zach and Jon's relationship. Instead, it was very one-sided.
The book begins with another Zach/Angel hookup scene, where they pick up some random kid at a seedy bar. I know a lot of readers hate the open relationship/voyeur dynamic of this pair, but I actually found it intriguing. That said, Ms. Sexton doesn't really explore it much further than in the first few pages. Zach admits he likes to watch Angel get it on, and Angel says he'll do anything for Zach, and then, boom, we're into the whole Paris thing and Zach and Jon.
I loved the way Ms. Sexton worked through the pain and guilt that Zach felt over having pushed Jon away, many years before. But that was the only area in which I felt satisfied at the end. Otherwise, the book was mostly fluff about Matt becoming comfortable with Cole and Angel deciding he wants to grow up (at last). Maybe Ms. Sexton is aiming for another sequel, but I expected she'd address some of the other issues raised here.
So, if you like the Coda books, this is an okay entry. But if you hated "A to Z," you probably won't be impressed with this book.
This fifth book was all about the wedding of Cole and Jonathan in Paris. I was really thinking the first ones to get married would be Jared and Mike however Marie Sexton had other thoughts in writting this book. I think when everyone travels to Paris for the wedding everyone ends up healing old scars and learning some things about themselves. The reader gets to experience everyone out of the their normal elements and learn that not everyone deals with things in the same way but in the end all that matters is LOVE.
I recommend this book and the full series to escape to another world. I hope this is not the last book but I may have to travel to this Coda to find out what happens with my friends.
