All around, just a great book.

Jared would love nothing more than to be teaching right now. But his heart is in Coda, with the mountains and trails.

And small town Coda has no room for gay people like him. He and one other man he knows of is gay. Until Matt strolls into town. The more he gets to know Jared, the more he wants to be with him. But sometimes life just gets too much when too many things are pressing down on you. It will be a toss up if they can make things happen or stay away forever. The way the treat their children. It pisses me off so bad.

Matt is so confused in this book. But he had to put it all on lockdown. Because of his family, his job. Everyone wants something from him except no one wants to ask what he wants. He wants to be happy.

And the more he is around Jared, the more he is.

What I Thought...

Jared is just as bad. Being a gay man wanting to teach, you have these stupid morons associating being gay with being a pedo. He just wants to teach. But people have to ruin it.

It also explains why Cole is the way he is in some ways. By Christy on May 15, I originally read this book quite a few years ago and immediately fell for the small town of Coda, the characters, and the author. Having it rerelease with a stunning new cover is kind of like revisiting a beloved friend for a glass of wine, a lot of laughs, some incredible memories, and a lot of sentimentality. In other words, a really fantastic time.

Strawberries for Dessert

I definitely love and appreciate his relationship with his mom, brother, and sister-in-law, but not feeling comfortable enough with his neighbors, so to speak, to be able to teach at the high school for fear of repercussions would have had me living my life somewhere else and coming to visit my family.

I felt horrible watching Matt struggle with his emotions, trying to comprehend how he could feel this way about a man, and attempting to be the best human being he could be with all the different expectations placed on him. Both men had to take long, hard looks at themselves and realize that maybe, just maybe, some of their life choices were based more on fear than reality.

This is an amazing read and I look forward to the rereleases of the next books in the series. This gave me a wonderful look at Jared during his college years before he returned home and shelved all of his wants and needs. A great little addition!

Sexton chose to make the gay for you theme broader by having Matt grapple with the fact that he'd had some attraction to other men but never followed through with it. Then she added the twist by making her gay character just as fearful as her closeted one.

Although Jared was out to the town, he never flaunted his being gay--in fact, he didn't even pursue a teaching career there in the town because he had already figured out that his being different would not be tolerated. So, slowly but surely, in many ways Jared shut that part of himself away--forming his own special kind of closet where he was still gay but never really out to the community.

Even though they all knew he was the gay guy at the local garage, he didn't date, kept to himself and never challenged anyone's homophobic tendencies.

Putting Out Fires

In essence, both men were trapped inside closets of their own making and it was going to take real strength to break free. I loved how the author chose to move this relationship slowly, how she carried both men through their own separate paths of self-discovery and how each needed the other in the end to survive the revelation that they had been living only half-lives, half-truths.

There were no quick fixes, this was going to be painful--Matt coming out of the closet meant being marginalized and cut off from some people he worked with on the police force.

It meant grappling with his alcoholic father and deciding whether he could stand up to him and admit the truth once and for all. For Jared it meant that he would actually have to begin living beyond his apartment--facing the town and acknowledging what they had known about him all along--it meant taking risks that could lead to being hurt.

This was a strong novel and I found the only weakness to be the action part of the story--the idea that Matt may be pursued by a jealous ex-husband did not ring true I believe because so little time was given to developing the plot point. So, the huge turning point at the end of the story seemed less than real for me and made a negative impact on the story overall; but the sweet love story that Promises was carried the rest of the novel beautifully. Hard times and times to make you jump for joy.

The characters are great with the exception of one in particular, but I guess you need a bad guy.

Now I cannot wait to go and read all the other books in this series! He and one other man he knows of is gay. It is sweet and sad.
