|Carver Elliot is a former detective, now comfortable in his new life as his own boss as a private investigator. Consequently, he is surprised and confused to find out that he not only enjoys, but fits perfectly in the bed of a demanding man such as David Logan. A thriving lieutenant in the Pittsburgh police department, David is full of protective barriers due to a past that has left him vulnerable and hesitant to commit to lovers. After three years of being celibate, he is more than a little disconcerted to have Carver barge into his life and settle in. Furthermore, a case of a missing girl intertwines their careers, only to show them that their life together was far from the comfortable bubble they thought it was.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Sins of Omission is a compelling portrayal of the clashing between two strong alpha males. The plot is beautiful and the characters are extremely real. Davidís struggles are so alive they jump out of the page and grip the reader until the end. At the same time, his vulnerability makes him the most lovable character in this story. Meanwhile, Carver is a very enjoyable man, and his confusion over his relationship with David, combined with his struggle to appear manly along with his desire to submit to David, gives him unexpected layers that make him the perfect match for the lieutenant. Also, secondary characters such as Scotty, Robin, and Thomas are so well developed they only add to the perfection of this story. Moreover, I loved the tension surrounding their careers and the case. In fact, Ms. Harper paints such convincing BDSM club scenes and Dom/sub relationships that, besides satisfying me with a very sensual m/m love story, taught me important lessons about such a mysterious lifestyle.
