    1. I was underwhelmed by this (hopefully last) addition to the Coda series.The alternating first-person POV wasn't distinct enough for me to easily differentiate between Dominic and Lamar, the two MCs.Dominic and Lamar get off in a park together when they're 17. Fifteen years later, they meet again and form a tentative friendship. Actually, they're not even friends; they hang out and build Lego sets.Dominic is in the closet and married with a teen daughter. Lamar is depressed and a teacher. Lamar's [...]


    2. What I loved:▲ The Prologue▲ The Epilogue▲ The secondary characters: Angelo, Zach, Jared, Matt, Naomi, Elena, and DimitriAnother eye roll. If they ever made condescension an Olympic event, thirteen-year-old girls would undoubtedly take every medal.▲ The writing style – as always, it is superiorWhat I disliked:▼ The main characters: Dominic was a coward and a selfish asshole, Lamar was weak and pathetic (I love his name though). Their development – if you can call it that – was la [...]


    3. The Coda series is one of my favorites. I've read the entire series at least twice. So I was excited to find out there's an addition to it but also apprehensive because the main characters are new.I understood what Dominic is going through. Even though he was completely stupid, I felt that his struggles were authentic. I know a lot of closeted gay guys had the same struggles. I liked how the author wrote about him and how she made Dominic different from Matt.I sympathized with Lamar even though [...]


    4. ~This book had a lot of highs and lows for me, with it starting out really strong when the boys meet, for only one summer night, just before their senior year of high school, then being separated for the next 15 years.And I was able to empathize with Dominic as to how those 15 years went down for him, since lots of people just tend to go with the flow and do what's expected of them. But the fact that he betrays Lamar multiple times, by saying he'll never leave, then *poof*, he's gone only moment [...]


    5. Shoot shoot shoot! Speaking of shooting, in case you were wondering, it's not this kind of shotgunBut this kind of shotgunI loved shotgun riding in the GTO, toking shotgun with wild hormone driven nerves, and then another kind of shotgun completely warmed my heart. Even though….I wanted to love this…I thought I would love this…I didn’t love this. *sad face*It’s always a big bummer when you have high hopes for a book and it falls short; especially when it’s from a favorite author and [...]


    6. DNF 39 %. Me da mucha pena porque me gusta mucho la serie de Coda, pero este libro es muy aburrido y hay muchas cosas que me apetecen leer. Tengo interés 0 en saber lo que pasa.


    7. 3.5 starsFor the most part I really enjoyed this book. I was happy to go back to Coda and catch up with a lot of the men from the previous books. The prolgue was sweet and it started off really well. I liked Lamar. He makes bad choices as far as men and is barely hanging on after extricating himself from his 2 year relationship with a married man and moving to Coda where his Aunt and Uncle live and he visited as a child. He is miserable and depressed until he meets up again with Dom, the boy he [...]


    8. It was fun to go back to Coda, and to get little glimpses of the guys from earlier in the series. The story opened well, and there were moments when I empathized with each of the main characters. Lamar was more sympathetic - a guy who took a risk on love and found himself being strung along by a married man. His hurt and depression rang true. Dominic annoyed me sometimes, with his narrow-minded rigid view of his situation, and his tendency to blow hot and cold when he knew Lamar was fragile from [...]



    9. First off, I am a huge Marie Sexton fan. I especially love her Coda books. Maybe my expectations were too high, but this book didn't quite hit the mark.Lamar was visiting his family in Coda as a teenager when he met Dominic. They share some steamy kisses and one night together until Lamar had to return home.Years later, Lamar moved to Coda to get away from his horrible ex-boyfriend. The last person he expected to run into was Dominic. When they saw each other, all those feelings came rushing bac [...]


    10. 4 stars for the first half.1.5 stars for the rest of the book.A bit drastic, but I lost all the respect for Dominic as the story went on. The guy was SO annoying with his hot-cold attitude, mixed signals, infantile behavior and his closet drama. I wanted Lamar to just kick him to the curb like the miserable piece of sh*t he was. Ugh.And the book was so good in the beginning! I loved reading how those two met.l that young lust/love, and then meeting again after 15 yearseach having been kicked by [...]


    11. I was looking forward to reading this book as I'm a huge fan of Marie Sexton's books. It started very good and gripping and I really liked the re-appearance of the couples of previous books. Until - well, until all this back and forth relationship-wise with Dom and Lamar started. I want to be with you, but only as friends, I can't do it anymore, I miss you, I can't do it anymoreThe whole storyline more and more drifted into ' been there, read this' so my reading-fun vanished quite a bit. But the [...]


    12. Even Paul Morey couldn't save it, but I will add a star because he is still one of my favorite narrators.


    13. Not as good as most of my 3-star books, but not as bad as my 2-star books. Here’s the thing, this was was very readable. I looked forward to getting back to it each time and it slipped by smoothly. Predictable, but in a comfortable way. The problem is that Marie Sexton created likable characters and then had them behave stupidly for the rest of the book. Dom, who we’re supposed to believe has been mostly celibate for 15 years, is constantly sending Lamar mixed signals. His fears about coming [...]


    14. I read the first book in the series quite a while ago, and I didn't hate it. I'm in a book-slump right now and thought I would give this a try. (Skipped the other books since the blurbs and reviews from GR friends didn't make them sound awesome.)So Dom and Lamar had a one-night-teenage-tryst 15 years ago, after which they (obsessively) thought/dreamt about each other. In and of itself this seemed quite romantic, but it was also quite unrealistic. I'm sure we all have someone we have fond memorie [...]


    15. I owe Marie Sexton and the Coda series a great big hug because this is the series that got me into reading M/M in the first place. It’s Sexton’s excellent writing and compelling characters that really jumpstarted my love for the genre so I was very excited when I heard that she was going to be releasing a seventh bookOTGUN is all about Dominic Jacobsen and Lamar Franklin. It starts off when they are the ripe young age of 17 and they are both feeling a little curious and reckless. When Lamar [...]


    16. 2.75 stars rounded upI loved Marie Sexton's Coda series -- Promise was one of my earliest introductions into MM romance about six years ago -- but this one definitely my least favorite. I put ALL the blame on Dominic's shoulder. I thought he was a coward. *scoff* The way he pushed Lamar away with his flimsy excuse AFTER he promised that he would never leave Lamar was off-putting. I was actually wishing that Lamar would stick to his gun and cut off anything relationship-related with Dominic. Yeah [...]


    17. REVIEWED FOR PRISM BOOK ALLIANCEI have been a huge fan of the Coda series since the beginning but this is probably my least favourite in the series and I think that is mainly due to the fact that I just didn’t like Dom.When Dom and Lamar meet at a party when they are seventeen they are immediately attracted to each other. After sneaking off from their friends and smoking a joint ‘shotgun’ they have a hot and steamy make out session in the back of Dom’s cars, sadly that is about the hotte [...]


    18. 3.25 StarsMarie Sexton's Coda series is one of my favorite collections of male/male romance stories. I adore the setting, the fun cast of characters, and, of course, the eclectic romances. Shotgun is the seventh installment, but can be read as a stand-alone since it features a brand new couple: Dominic and Lamar.These two met as teenagers when their obvious chemistry resulted in a steamy session in the back of a car. Unfortunately, Lamar moved back to Arizona shortly afterwards and they don't se [...]


    19. A Joyfully Jay review. 3.75 starsWe have another book in my beloved Coda series you guys. I about died when I heard this story was coming out, as this is one of my all time favorite series and I have reread these books so many times. I am not exaggerating to say that I recommend this series to just about everyone and would put it on the “must read” list for any m/m romance reader. So clearly, I was coming into this book with high expectations, as I am sure many other readers are as well.So l [...]


    20. All the books of the Coda Series were 4 stars for me, but this one is a bit under three. The writing is obviously still excellent, I loved the interactions with the ''older'' Coda's characters, but the MCs here go through too much drama and inexplicable changes of mind. If Lamar would have written to Dan Savage for advice about his relationship with Dominic, Dan would have answered DTMFA*. See also the reviews by Dani(ela) or Todd.*Dump The Mother-Fucker Already


    21. I really enjoyed this added book in the series. I loved seeing Matt, Jared, Angelo, and Zach again and thought their stories meshed well with the current MCs. I liked the main characters and thought their relationship was well done. Sure, Dominic took too long to come to terms with being out to his family, but sometimes people do that. Once he came out, he would not be able to go back. It was great that he got some help from Matt and Jared about how things had worked out (eventually) when they c [...]



    22. Ive loved this series. Promises remains probably my favorite book of all.This was the story of Dominic and Lamarr. They met once at 17 and then 15 years later Lamarr moves to COda and the 2 meet again.Dominic was hesitamt about starting a relationship for various reasons and to be honest I really wanted to hit him upside the head alot of times to knock some sense into him.However. in the end everything turns out ok. I am sorry to see the end of Coda and this group of friends.


    23. Though this comes from the Coda story line, it is a standalone. However, if I hadn’t read the other books I wouldn’t have found much that I found appealing in this story.Basically this is about Dominic and his complete unwillingness to be a gay man because he’s afraid of what people will think. Poor Lamar just gets hurt over and over as Dom chooses everyone’s happiness but Lamar’s time and again.Lamar and Dom met as teenagers and made out once on the night before Lamar left town for 15 [...]


    24. I was so excited when I happened upon this book and realized the author had written another book in this series. It's one of my favorite series in the m/m genre and I re-read Strawberries For Dessert a couple times a year. So I went in with open heart and love how it started. Dominic and Lamar have a hot encounter as teens when Lamar is visiting some family in Coda. Unfortunately, he leaves the following day leaving Dominic confused about his sexuality. For Lamar though, the encounter was eye op [...]


    25. bianchianita1971/2Che emozione tornare a Coda!!! E che meraviglia ritrovare Matt, Jared, Angelo e Zack!!! Ma questa storia non parla di loro: parla di Dom e Lamar e del loro difficile cammino per raggiungere la felicità. I due si conoscono a diciassette anni, un incontro che cambierà per sempre le loro vite; dovranno passare però altri quindici anni perchè si ritrovino. Lamar è diventato un professore, è depresso e sta uscendo da una storia difficile con un uomo sposato. Dom ha una figlia [...]


    26. I loved Shotgun, the latest Coda book by Marie Sexton! Marie writes characters I want to meet in real life. She infuses them with attributes based on her own experiences, such as a love of everything Broncos or the challenges of living with depression. Her characters continue to live off the page for me when I finish one of her books, which is high praise indeed from me, given I read about 300 books a year. Shotgun is a great story of finding out a first love is a true love, as in HEA. Before re [...]


    27. Reading a Marie Sexton's book is always warranty of good reading and fun. I loved this book very much. Loved the characters, the story, adored meeting Matt and Jared, Angelo and Zach again and I was totally in love with Dominic and Lamar. It was so strong the feelings that each story and situations gave me I passed all the day long reading. Dominic's anguish and fears are so real, and Lamar need to be loved so strong I totally get lost in their environment and struggles. One of the best from Cod [...]


    28. This story didn't live up to my anticipation of it. It started strong, the MCs met as teenagers but we're parted to soon. When they met 15 years later they were still attracted to each other. I thought the romance would have started earlier but there was too much guilt, circumstances, denial and baggage in the way so they didn't get together until near the end. I got a bit impatient with the story and wanted them to sort themselves out.I really enjoyed the part with the original Coda characters, [...]
