Audio Gem

Title: Shotgun (Coda Series: Book Seven)

Author: Marie Sexton

Blurb: As a young man, Dominic Jacobsen already suspects he’s gay, and he gets all the confirmation he needs when a rich boy from out of town climbs into the back seat of Dominic’s GTO. One night with Lamar Franklin is all it takes to convince Dominic he’s found the man of his dreams. Unfortunately, that one night is all he’ll get before Lamar returns to Tucson.

Fifteen years later Lamar returns to Coda, Colorado, after ending the latest in a string of bad relationships. He’s alone, depressed, and plagued by late-night phone calls from an unidentified caller. Lamar’s ready to give up when he comes face-to-face with his past.

Since he was 17, Dominic has dreamed of a reunion with Lamar, but that doesn’t mean he’s ready for it now. Facing small-town rumors and big-family drama is bad enough, but Dominic won’t risk losing custody of his teenage daughter, Naomi. The only solution is to make sure he and Lamar remain friends and nothing more. Clothes stay on, no matter what.

It seems simple enough. But for better or worse, Lamar has other ideas.


Review: I love a good mystery! I love a HEA Male/Male romance! I love coming out stories! And, most of all, I love Marie Sexton and the stories she writes! What a surprise to learn that this was book seven in the Coda series. Not that I mean to be greedy, but can we please have a book eight and nine and ten? Why stop at seven?

Marie Sexton was able to tie in so many sub-plots and characters: Lamar and Jonas, Dominic and Elena, Dominic and his family, Dominic and his daughter, Naomi, and, I think the best one—Lamar, Dominic, Legos and happiness. It’s a great journey.

Paul Morey and the audiobook of Shotgun are like peas and carrots, state fairs and corn dogs, or, my favorite, baseball and peanuts—they are just meant to be together. Morey has such a smooth voice that just draws you in. He is able to capture all the voices and emotions of the characters. I can’t even imagine how hard it must be to sound like a thirteen-year-old girl who’s rolling her eyes over how dumb her dad is acting. He does a great job. Shotgun is five star great, and the narrator, Paul Morey, is five star great too Don’t miss this audiobook from two of the best in the business.

Oh, and “Clothes stay on, no matter what”… Don’t believe it. This is a happily-ever-after story, if you know what I mean. ;)
