Lists with This Book. A swing and a miss. I’m SO upset that this book didn’t rock like book one in the series, Cop Out. I love the narrator, Tristan James, but even that deep, sultry voice couldn’t make this story interesting The biggest problem with this book is that the concept is so far removed from reality that it was almost painful to read.
I honestly have no idea why Ivan agreed to the undercover op in the first place. Who would ever think that going undercover to investigate a suspected POT de A swing and a miss. And with no proof, no evidence.

And pot dealers in college are SO rare, right? And, honestly Ivan, you should consider going into a different line of work because you SUCK as a cop. I almost felt bad for the guy. He got caught all the time! He was caught snooping, did a crappy job searching Parker’s room left everything in different places, you idiot! I know Ivan was suffering from emotional trauma after being involved in a shooting but it didn’t make watching him bumble through a nonsensical investigation any more enjoyable.
Ugh, and the miscommunications?!!? This book dragged and dragged and even though I liked the chemistry between Parker and Ivan, this story got on my last nerve. Parker was adorable as the androgynous twink, but he was seriously TSTL.
However, I understood him a bit. Having once been the chubby friend myself and then losing some weight, I know what it’s like to be totally clueless when someone finds you attractive. However, he was do-goody and innocent to an almost comical degree.
Though this was a slow-burn romance my favorite kind! Combine a plot that didn’t make sense with a story that dragged and you get a underwhelming result. View all 8 comments. Nov 16, Simsala marked it as dnf Shelves: A cop-goes-undercover crime story that gets beaten to death by endlessly mulled over mutual sexual attraction – without any tangible sparks.
View all 7 comments. Nov 16, Heller rated it liked it Shelves: While I can forgive that for Parker because of his nativity and relative youth it was a lot harder to give Ivan a pass. Ivan has been shoved undercover after an extremely intense and disturbing drug bust. I don’t know if he was thrown off his game because of those events but his undercover op was riddled with issues.
I did enjoy the chemistry between the MC’s but I found I was more frustrated with how they just didn’t clear things up with a simple conversation. The bad guy here is pretty obvious as soon as he hits the page so that took a bit of the fun out of this one as I just waited for the cop to catch up.
Still it was nice to see Kurt and Davy as well as Rick from the previous book. Nice read but a bit unrealistic both in terms of storyline and characters. Dec 14, R. View all 13 comments. Nov 07, Catherine rated it liked it Shelves: I liked this one more than I was expecting too, but I could have done with a little more romance in my romance novel. Also, Ivan’s a pretty terrible cop.
I didn’t like this quite as much as book 1, but it is more like a 3.
Parker was adorable, I loved him. But his and Ivan’s relationship was a bit o.c.burn. With all the lies and betrayal and confusion, I was surprised how easily they got through it at the end.
I did not expect Parker to take Ivan back so quickly. I wish we could have seen a bit more of them together afterwards. This one overlaps the end of cober first book and starts with the shoot out where Kurt is shot.
When Ivan returns to work immediately from the shooting, he is immediately sent out on an off the radar undercover operation by hi 3.
Cover Up Audiobook | KC Burn |
When Ivan returns to work immediately from the shooting, he is immediately sent out on an off the radar undercover operation by his immediate supervisor. While the whole situation, does not sit well with Ivan, he nonetheless complies. He is installed as the housemate of Parker, a young gay man believed to be an up and comer in a Russian drug operation and Ivan is to get the evidence that will lead to his arrest. While getting to know Parker, Ivan starts to believe that there is no way Parker can be the man his boss believes he is, all the while falling for him.
The investigation plot is a bit outlandish, but serves to connect the characters from Cop Out with Ivan and Parker, and to reaffirm relationships for the next book in the series.
Parker and Ivan are a good couple, and while the undercover aspect of Ivan’s work required him to lie and be evasive, there still was the stumbling block of failure to communicate about the most basic issues. There is also Ivan’s PTSD from the shooting, that allowed me to somewhat forgive the crappy police work and complete failure to see what was right in front of him. Overall I enjoyed the relationship between Ivan and Parker, but if you are looking for an intriguing mystery, you won’t get it here since the bad guy is obvious from the beginning and the wrap up was a bit of stretch on several fronts.
I am, however, looking forward to reading Rick and Ian’s book next. Unfortunately, I didn’t find this novel as good as the first in the series. For me, the whole premise of the investigation was obviously suspicious, while the bad guy was immediately apparent.
Throw in a too-trusting policeman, Ivan, a too-innocent yet supposed bad guy, Parker, as well as a sprinkle of insta-love, and the whole story seemed rather implausible to me.
That said though, I did enjoy catching up with Davy and Kurt again, and it’s why I rounded up to 3 stars. Pretty farfetched plot but nothing a little skimming can’t fix. I didn’t really like Ivan, Parker was sweet if a little naive.
Police procedure here is laughable. Surprisingly I look forward to Rick and Ian’s story. Nov 30, Christy rated it really liked it Shelves: I liked that this second installment in the ‘Toronto Tales’ series picked up basically where the first book ended. The fact that the whole situation smelled rotten right from the beginning made me empathize with Ivan immediately and I was hyperalert for cops gone bad.
That sounds like a bad reality TV show. Wh I liked that this second installment in the ‘Toronto Tales’ series picked up basically where the first book ended. When Ivan’s bust goes to hell in a handbasket, there’s no question that there must be a leak in the police department.
So when Ivan is put on paid suspension while Internal Affairs reviews the shootings, Ivan’s boss sends him into a completely unsanctioned undercover operation. That’s sort of illegal and against all department policies. But, it gives Ivan an opportunity to look into the Russian mafia he’s been watching for awhile and possibly discover the traitor in the department. There are a few problems with this assignment, however. Ivan is supposed to play a divorced, straight guy who becomes the roommate of Parker, an up-and-coming drug dealer within the mafia.
Parker is straight-up gorgeous and Ivan is massively attracted to him. And problem number three: Ivan is seriously thinking of a different career because this constant undercover work is really killing him. So, what to do, hmm?
