Publisher's Summary

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?

Loved it!

*Audiobook edition*

Okay, I won't beat around the bush. I loved this.

But will you love it too? I don't know.

This book fits my very particular and specific tastes. I'll read almost anything, M/F, M/M, paranormal, historical, sci-fi... you name it, I'll read it. However, my true love remains a good old fashioned gay-for-you. I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times- give me a gay virgin and I'm a happy camper!

"Cop Out" was 100% in my wheelhouse.

If you are looking for a cop story with a lot of detective work or a romantic suspense plot, look elsewhere. The fact that one of the MCs is a cop is more background information than anything else. There is no mystery and little focus on the job.

If you are looking for a book with lots of sex, also look elsewhere. While the sex scenes in this book were squirm-in-my-seat hot, they were very infrequent.

If you are looking for a fast-paced read, pass this one up. It is an agonizingly slow burn romance with a plot that takes its sweet time to develop.

However, if you are like me and you love the struggle, the inner tension of a GFY, the slow, slow burn of a romance, and some amazing chemistry between two men going through some extreme life changes, then you should not let this one slip through your fingers.

What really made this perfect for me was the narrator, Tristan James. I listen to a lot of audiobooks and I'm very picky about my narrators. This narrator was awesome. He had a perfect voice for the part and I'd rank him as one of my favorite M/M narrators to date.

An excellent GFY and another 5 star audiobook for me.

Captures your attention...

I loved this book. I fell in love with the character Kurt. He wanted to do the right thing and in the process he met Davy and something happened within that changed everything. Kurt's goodness lured me in and I decided that "this is the sort of man I want". His internal struggles added drama to the story and was realistic. Burn did a fantastic job writing this story and Tristan James' narration added so much to the characters. A great combination here. Though each character was struggling, there was a time I wanted to reach through my ear buds and slap the fool out of Davy...but I can understand some of his actions, it just didn't make me real happy. When you get caught up in the lives of the characters on a page, and consequently through the know it's a good book. I certainly recommend this book and I look forward to reading the next book in the series...
