I don't see anything wrong with this hand. When CO opens play you have a good hand to 3-bet. And as you are already invested calling 4-bet is standard from BTN. Because the villain offers you a size that practically forces you to call from the best position. If the V make 4-bet bigger, we can talk about overplaying your hand a bit if you choose to 5-bet bluff, since calling commits you too much to the pot.
As a note fact, you are playing with effectives 75bb, so the concept of compromised pot is a bit relative here. And really in a place like this, V shouldn't expect much fold equity from your range.
On the flop Villain's cbet means V's last attempt to kick you out of the pot, when he perceives that you don't have a strong hand, specifically a high pocket like QQ or KK.
The turn clearly doesn't favor V as you could have connected very well with the board now. You could represent all the wheel aces that called/4bet and didn't come 5bet pre-bluffed.
So your way of playing did not seem excessive to me at any time.
Greetings.

Thanks Gustav197poker
I thought possibly I should check to induce a bluff and check raise on the river, but I guess if a KQJ (maybe a 9) comes down, there are suddenly lots of hands that have me beat right?

If you bet on the turn you are getting value from a greater number of hands. In a 4-bet pot the villain from CO you could have a considerable amount of dominated values worth getting. You're only behind AK, mostly. And to a lesser extent below TX: But you are ahead of KK, JJ and aces without a kicker (less likely, the latter).
So on the river if a K or J comes up, it's more likely that your villain has benefited from this texture. Whereas QQ is less likely for V because you're blocking it.
