5 stars for the Matt and Jared scenes and 5 stars for the Cole and Jon scenes. 10 stars for Cole picking on Matt at the dinner table)

For those of you who are huge fans of Zach and Angelo, you will probably love this book. I, unfortunately, am not a fan. I knew beforehand the book was about Zach and Ang, but there was no way I would miss reading about my other favorite couples.

So this story basically tries to wrap up Zach and Ang's weird relationship. Although, a lot of conflicts are still left...more
This book, was disappointing...I did not like Zach's character, his whole thing was just strange.

Cole was lovely, but there was not nearly enough of him and Jon, and Matt's bitching got on my nerves.

I love Marie Sexton... Promises and Strawberries for Dessert are two of my favorite...but I just couldn't like Zach.

I was hoping there would be more Cole but alas we're stuck with Zach brooding and Matt's jealousy. The only part I enjoyed was everyone ragging on Matt. This was basically about Zach facing his guilt over the breakup with Jon.

One word sums this up - Boring!

This is my second review of this book.

I read it yesterday and I gave it one star only because I was disappointed. I was expecting too much because I loved Promises and Strawberries for Dessert a lot. I thought we would have a lot more of Jon and Cole, I just love this couple. I bought Paris A to Z because of them.

But there was too much of Angelo and Zach and not enough of Jon and Cole. I don't like Angelo and Zach much. I find that when Zach does not behave like a doormat, a passive and lazy m...more

What a wonderful end to such a great series. I have always loved all three couples, though it took me a while to realize that Ang and Zach relationship worked for them, no matter how little I understood it at the time. I suppose time does that -- what passes for months or years can pass for a few hours in a novel, so I don't always take to the issues right away, or understand the characters' reactions to them. I suppose that is a benefit of a series. So, that's why I loved this book. As...more
3.0 Stars

This was a mixed bag for me. I love the characters in this series and Sexton's writing is terrific. But, once again, I was less than thrilled with Zach and Angelo's relationship.

In Paris A to Z, we learn about what drives Zach and Angelo's open relationship. As I've stated before, I'm not a fan of open relationships in my romance books. However, learning that Zach was a voyeur and that Angelo had sexual encounters with other men for Zach helped me to understand them better. It softened...more
I did get a little confused with all the characters in the book. It was more about remembering who had been with who and who was with who/m.(Sorry if my grammar is incorrect, I always get confused!)

It has been a great series. Sweet, sexy and satisified!
This isn't exactly a coherent review - I'm still under impression. :)

I adore this series. And this book is a perfect ending to it. You will laugh (Matt & Cole!), cry (Zach & Jon, Zach & Angelo), you will melt (all of them). I started the book with the feeling of revisiting all friends and closed it perfectly content. Not because it is certain that Ms. Sexton will write more about the guys, because it isn't, but because I know I will be revisiting them again and again - every time I r...more
Here begins my review with a fangirl-y reaction: Oh my god! Jonathan! Cole! Wedding! Paris! ...and Zach and Angelo and Matt and Jared and goddamned UST.

A lot of writers make me laugh. A lot of writers make me cry. A lot of writers make my heart clench. A lot of writers make my gut twist and turn and get tied up in knots. A lot of writers are freaking amazing. Marie Sexton did all of this to me... all at the same time.

I don't know what I was expecting from this book, seeing as this was a sequel t...more
Loved... Review to come...
“Between Matts jealousy and Angelos temper, wed be lucky to get through the trip without anybody being punched. And the chances of it being one of the grooms on the receiving end were astronomically high.”

*Ja'Mecha* ~Dhevious~
This one here.... I often find myself reviewing on books that leave me feeling a certain way. And dammit this one made me cry. I had tears running down my face and I was trying to wipe snot buggers discreetly on the back of my hand,when I realized that no one else was around.

This book hit home for me in so many ways, that I am not going to put down. Just know That I loved this book.

Thank you Jess for the rec!
There are not many books not to mention the whole series of them that got under my skin as much as this series did. I don't care what people say about Angelo or Jon...nobody is perfect and despite that all those brilliant characters in these books found someone who is perfect just for them. I loved this story and the dynamics between all three couples was magical for me...just as the whole series was

Paris A to Z has us returning to Zach and Angelo, two characters previously met in A to Z, Jared and Matt, from Promises, and Cole and Jonathon from Strawberries for Dessert. This time, of course, the scene is Paris, and the boys have grown up a little bit, showing an open acceptance, and appreciation, of what their significant other requires. Cole is the catalyst for this little getaway, surprising the four; Zach and Angelo, Jared and Matt; with flights to the city of love for his commitment ce...more
✽ Sharon is an emotional book junkie ✽
This is a story that is about Cole and Jon getting "married" in Paris but it's not their book which is kind of strange. It's really a book about Zach and Angelo and ultimately it's a book that ties up all the loose ends. The problem is that it left me feeling unsatisfied.

The good part is that a lot of the relationships got worked out and settled between the guys. It is hard to believe that Cole and Matt could really be friends but I did love the way that Jared helped Matt come to terms with his...more
I want to be sad that a fabulous series (Coda Books) has ended but the concluding novella, Paris A to Z, wraps everything and everyone up so well that I feel satisfied and happy. The story could have been longer and had more Jonathan and Cole but really that’s just getting greedy since the story is nearly pitch perfect in offering solid happy endings to everyone. In some ways the various arc are the inevitable conclusions to the growth that each character has over the course of the series. Angel...more
This was a book meant to end a series. I think it accomplished that, however, I feel like it was rushed and there should have been more. Maybe that's just because I wanted there to be more who knows.
This book was mainly another Zach and Angelo book. It seems their relationship needed 3 books to tell their story. I felt like a book supposedly about Jon and Cole's wedding should have had more than a few lines thrown in about it. It was as if the author realized she needed to mention it as she drag...more

I loved it. Loved it! Too short but loved it. It was so great to read about all the couples and see where they were at in their lives. Zach's coming to terms with how his relationship ended with Jon, Ang's love for Zach, Zach's almost worship of Ang, Matt and Jared's steady love even with Matt's jealousy, Jon and Cole's wedding, just awesome! Thrilled that Matt is more comfortable in his skin in regards to the sexual side of their relationship. Just loved it and want more! :)
This is the first book by Marie Sexton that I didn't give 5 stars too. For me it was too much about ex-boyfriends and jealousy which is something I can't relate to. I would've liked the book to be more about the relationships they were in now.
♡♥Ang ♥♡
I'm glad there is going to be another one!
This one felt unfinished!! I lovedd Matt and Jared Cole and Jon, am still warming up to zack and ang,it was a good read with a happy for now for the two of them!! And a hea for the other boys of course :)

This was a nice ending to this series. I loved all of these guys and all of their stories. I will be reading this series again someday. Marie Sexton is so talented! Thanks!

I knew this wasn't going to last long enough. Sigh.
Marie, you'll keep writing about Zach and Angelo, right? Forever?
Love all of them Jared, Matt, Zach, Angelo, Cole and Jonathan .. This is a terrific series !

This takes place after the events of Strawberries for Dessert, Cole and Jon are getting married, in Paris, and Cole decides to invite the Coda guys along.

This is mainly about Zach and Angelo's relationship, but we have lots of Matt and Jared too.
Not everyone is very happy with the arrangement, Matt has to face Cole -Jared's past lover-, Angelo has to face Zach's ex. Between the jealousy and tempers Zach is not sure the trip was such a good idea, but soon he...more

This one was wonderful!! It's the sixth book of the Coda series and is about closure but also about beginings. Zach and Angelo and Matt and Jared are on their way to Paris for Cole and Jonathan's wedding(Strawberries for Dessert). Matt's not at all happy to see Cole again but Cole is Jared's best friend, and he'll do anything for Jared. And the thought of being in the presence of Jonathan for a week, especially after the disasterous trip to Vegas and Angelo's feelings about Jonathan after what...more

I enjoyed Strawberries for Dessert more than A to Z and was intrigued that Cole and Jon were getting married - in Paris!
I wondered how the author would pull this off since gay marriage is illegal in Paris and foreigners must be legal residents of at least 40 days to qualify. The rigmarole involved in foreigners getting married there is never mentioned and the ceremony itself is completely glossed over.
No marriage nothing. The French make it damned difficult to wed there for straight...more

Not so good. It’s a reunion book.

I read this by mistake. I wanted to read “A to Z” (Book 2 in the series) which was the story of Zach and Angelo. They met and developed a relationship in Book 2. Instead I bought this Book (5 or 6) which is Zach and Angelo already in a relationship, and they take a trip to Paris. Three separate couples get together for a wedding. Some of them slept with others in the group before the current relationships, so there is jealousy. The main plot is Zach and Matt gett...more
Another installment of the Coda Series. In this one, the gang all travels to Paris for Jonathan & Cole's wedding. The story in narrated by Zach & Matt. In this book, Matt is once again faced with his jealousy over Cole. Zach has to deal with his feelings toward Jonathan and his relationship with Angelo.

When all was said and done I laughed and cried during this book. I missed having the voice of one of the grooms in this book, since everyone was all together it would have been fun to see...more
Note that the following review contains a few mild spoilers.

The Coda Books have become one of my favorite series. Although I'm sad to say goodbye to these six wonderful characters, I am mostly satisfied with this conclusion to the series. Some of the underlying issues which pop up repeatedly through the series (Angelo's "caged bird" feeling, for example, or Matt's residual discomfort with certain aspects of gay sex) get resolved in Paris A to Z. The reader also gets to see much deeper into Zach...more

“You sayin' you want to go?"
"Don't you?"
"Hell no!"
"Okay,I'll tell Matt and Jared that they can go to Paris without us."
The only response was stunned silence, and I finally turned to smile at him. "Do you want to reconsider?" I asked.
"The wedding's in Paris?"
His dark eyes were huge, and I could see so much in them. He was excited, almost giddy. I could see it bubbling up in him, but he was trying t stay calm and not get his hopes up. "Can we afford Paris?"
"No," I said, "but it doesn't matter. Cole's footing the bill."
He grabbed my shirt and pushed me back against the countertop, almost as if he was going to kiss me, but stopped short, looking into my eyes. "Are you serious?"
"Would I lie to you about something like this?"
"Do you think I'd make it up just to tease you?"
He backed up a step. "Yes what?"
he asked.
I could hardly keep from laughing that I'd finally managed to turn the tables on him with his own backward form of communication. "Yes, I'm absolutely serious. Cole offered to fly us all to Paris."
His expression was so full of hope, I thought it was a good thing I hadn't tried to say no. He put his hand against my cheek and looked into my eyes. "Tell me what you want to do."
All I had to do was tell him the truth. I brushed his hair out of his eyes and said, "I want to do whatever will make you happy."
He smiled at me, the huge, excited smile of a child who woke up from his nap to find himself in Disneyland. "I want to go to Paris."
"Okay," I said as I leaned down to kiss him. "Then you will.”
“Jared was completely gone now, holding his stomach and laughing so hard that tears were running down his face. Matt turned on him and snapped, "It's not funny," which only made Jared laugh harder.
"Any of you guys strict about top or bottom?" Angelo asked, "'Cause if so, you'll screw it all up-"
"Literally," Cole said.
"And we'll have to start all over." Angelo turned to Matt. "If you got a strong preference you better say so now."
"Lay it all out, so to speak," Cole said.
"On the table." Angelo said.
"For all to see."
"Zach does like to watch," Angelo said, winking at me, and I was relieved that with the direction the conversation was going, nobody took him seriously.
"Then it's settled!" Cole said. "Who's going where with whom first? Zach, I think you're up." He winked at me. "Or you soon will be."
"Oh dear God," Mat moaned, hanging his head. "I knew I shouldn't have come."
"Don't worry about it a bit," Cole said. "I'm sure Zach can coax at least one more out of you."
Jared laughed so hard, I was amazed he managed to stay in his chair.”
