Cop Out (Toronto Tales #1) by KC Burn is one of those I’ve seen around for years and always thought to myself that ‘yeah, maybe I’ll read that next’ but I never had. Now I did.
I’m not really a Gay-For-You or Out-For-You kind of girl. I read them if there is something else about the book that interests me, but you won’t see me scroll the GRY / OFY shelves. I liked this though, the slow burn romance is really nice and there is coping with grief and a lot of self-discovery.
I was sure I’d read KC Burn before, I’ve seen so many of her books around, but apparently, I haven’t. This won’t be my last Burn book, though. I’m looking forward to more books set in Canada.
It also made me want to expand my greenhouse – all those tomatoes! LOL Now, I just have to look over my shoulder to realise I already have more tomato plants than I could possibly fit in my garden as it is now so I’ll have to come up with some smart solution for that. I’m practically living in a jungle at the moment.
Cop Out doesn’t focus much on Kurt being a cop, but if you’re looking to be introduced to an officer you might find him here or maybe you’re in the mood for some slow-burn.
Detective Kurt O’Donnell is used to digging up other people’s secrets, but when he discovers his slain partner was married to another man, it shakes him. Determined to do the right thing, Kurt offers the mourning Davy his assistance. Helping Davy through his grief helps Kurt deal with the guilt that his partner didn’t trust him enough to tell him the truth, and somewhere along the way Davy stops being an obligation and becomes a friend, the closest friend Kurt has ever had.
His growing attraction to Davy complicates matters, leaving Kurt struggling to reevaluate his sexuality. Then a sensual encounter neither man is ready for confuses them further. To be with Davy, Kurt must face the prospect of coming out, but his job and his relationship with his Catholic family are on the line. Can he risk destroying his life for the uncertain possibility of a relationship with a newly widowed man?
