Toronto Tales: Book Three

Thirty-five-year-old Rick Haviland is a well-respected speech pathologist, but while his friends are all settling into relationships, he refuses to give up his no-strings-attached club boy sex life. For him, relationships are dangerous; he’s got a secret to hide. When he meets Ian O’Donnell, an account manager with a local tabloid, Rick figures his personal rules for relationships should be enough to keep him safe from more than a one-night stand.

When Ian comes out of the closet, tired of anonymous hook-ups and keeping secrets from his large Catholic family, Rick is right there, and he’s just the sort of man Ian might like to get to know better.Their attraction is immediate, electric and mutual. Ian convinces Rick to break more and more of his rules, and his defenses crumble. But someone watches, someone who’d like to see this new relationship fail. When Ian’s job becomes a means to expose Rick’s secret, it could destroy both their careers and their hearts.

Another hit out of the park by K.C. Burn. Cast Off is book three of Toronto Tales, taking place in a similar timeframe to book two, Cover Up. At the end of book one, we found out why Ian, Kurt’s brother, stopped talking to him after he came out. He, also, is gay. Only he’d known for twenty years and had been terrified to come out. Cover Up is the story of Ian and Rick. These two were definitely a match for each other. Ian hid his homosexuality for a long time, but now that he’s out, he’s ready to develop a relationship. And he wants Rick. Rick, however, has a hard and fast rule – no keepers. As soon as any guy he uses for sex looks like he’s the kind that wants a relationship, it’s over. The only problem with Ian is, Rick wants more. And Ian is a sneaky man. He recognizes that the thought of a relationship is terrifying to the other man and suggests they become friends. Rick keeps hoping the benefits will leap in as sex with Ian is the best he’s ever had. Unfortunately, nothing can be easy for these two. With someone sending threats to Rick including a dead squirrel and keying his car, nothing prepares him for when a rag mag threatens to out his past, which threatens everything he’s built for himself. Ian does everything he can to keep Rick close and to help him, but when Rick refuses him one to many times, it might be the last. Okay, when I read and reviewed Cover Up, book two, I thought the dual point of view kept it from being the intense read that the first book Cop Out was. Now, I’m figuring there must have been another reason, because Cast Off is also dual point of view, but I was still able to get into both men’s heads. Do I wish it had been longer? Yes. I could have read this book for hours and hours. But the author once again, has won this reader’s devotion. And it makes me wonder. Will she be coming out with Toronto Tales #4 & #5? After all, Jon and Kevin both will need their stories told, right? *hint hint* Reviewed by a-nony-mouse for Crystal’s Many Reviewers *Copy provided for review*
