Sinful Secrets by Melissa Ohnoutka

Event planner Joanna McNamee is scrambling to ensure her father’s company Christmas party goes smoothly, but one disaster after another has her convinced someone is trying to sabotage her career. With the help of a man from her past who she’s still not sure she can trust, she puts the pieces together and realizes her business is the least of her problems—a cold-blooded killer is out to destroy her father and take her as his prized possession. 

The last thing Deputy Ryker Kane expects is for a simple truck hijacking to throw him back into the middle of the Black Widow case he’d been forced to abandon, not to mention right into the arms of the sweet woman he’d let walk away ten years earlier. When he finds Jo Jo kidnapped and drugged, he has to use all his wits and skills honed from years as a detective to save them both. Despite the secrets between them, Ryker’s bound and determined to give them a second chance at love.

I think this book had a lot of potential to be a book I loved, but it fell a little flat. There were some things that I liked a lot about this book, but there were also things that bugged me. I do think this author is a strong writer and I would be interested in reading more books by her in the future.

The biggest issue I had with the book was the main character, Jo Jo. I didn't have any issues with her personality. I thought she was a nice woman who cared for those around her. My issue with her was how dumb she was when it came to certain situations. I honestly don't know how she survived this book. I guess her naivety kept the book interesting, but I wasn't a fan of it. I wanted to shake some sense into her!

Ryker was the main male character in this book, and I really liked him. I definitely understood why jo Jo fell for him. Ryker was passionate and there was just something so alluring about him. My only wish for him is that I wish he was developed a little more.

The suspense was the best part about this book in my opinion. I thought the suspenseful moments were very well written. The action was heart racing and well paced. The author did a great job with that part of the book. I would have liked even more of it!

Overall, this was a quick and suspenseful read. Even though the main character was naive and the villain was easy to point out, I still thought this book was entertaining. I look forward to seeing what the author comes out with next.
