Part of the Coda Series

Zach Mitchell is stuck in a rut. His college boyfriend left him ten years ago, but Zach still lives in the same apartment, drives the same car, and feeds his ex-boyfriend’s ungrateful cat. His Denver business, A to Z Video Rental, is struggling. He has annoying customers, eccentric neighbors, and an unfulfilling romance with his landlord, Tom.

A combat boot-wearing punk with an attitude, Angelo Green was raised in foster homes and has been on his own since he was sixteen; he has never learned to trust or to love. He doesn’t do relationships, so when Angelo takes a job at A to Z Video, he decides Zach is strictly off-limits.

Despite their differences, Zach and Angelo quickly become friends, and when Zach’s break-up with Tom puts his business on the line, it’s Angelo who comes up with a solution. Together with Jared and Matt, their friends from Coda, Colorado, Zach and Angelo will find a way to save A to Z, but will they be able to save each other too?

Story Review:

This is my least favorite book in the Coda series. These two men are both a mess. Neither of them have their life together, and they’re trying to make a relationship work and running a business together. Still, it’s a decent book, and I do enjoy the Coda series as a whole, especially since this book leads up to Strawberries for Dessert.

Narration Review:

The narrator did a better job on this book than he did on Promises, I’ll give him that. But he still needs a lot of work. His voice for Zach wasn’t bad, but he completely screwed up Angelo’s voice. It just didn’t work. The narrator needs a lot more practice. I’d recommend picking up the eBook of this one rather than the audiobook.
