Very few times can I say I’ve read a book that just pulled me into its world as quickly as this one did. Jared and Matt just have this quality that makes me not only want to know what happens to them, but also feel totally invested in their story. As someone who spent most of his life in a small town, I could definitely relate to Jared’s reservations about the homophobia and the way people in his community gossip – his fears and worries come across as very realistic. The relationship in this book is developed masterfully, and I certainly look forward to continuing this series and spending more time in Coda.
