This story was a fantastic rollercoaster ride, with lots of thrills, suspense and intrigue….
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 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.
Riveting 4.5 Stars
JoJo runs a party planning company, her father thinks she's wasting her time and wants her to do what he wants. Or as she puts it, wants to dictate what/when/how/where and why she does anything. Go back to school to become a lawyer, and then crawl back to him begging and telling him he was right. NOT gonna happen!!! Someone is out to sabotage her party/progress, and wants her to look like a fool in front of her father. Her truck and crew disappear while they're setting up for her father's annual work Christmas party. After finding the truck minus the crew, a deputy comes to talk to her about it, however she didn't report the truck missing. And to add just another issue, the deputy is none other than Ryker, her almost one night stand in college. But she pretends like she doesn't recognize him. It doesn't matter how attracted she is to him or the pull he seems to have on her. She's got bigger things to worry about, who's really trying to ruin her and how far will it go?
Ryker, the boy from the wrong side of the tracks has had a crush on JoJo since high school. But because of her status stayed away except to help her out a few times. Then they meet up again at a bar in college, but she sneaks out the next morning while he's in the shower without a backwards glance. What made her leave, not come back and ignore his calls? Now he's trying to figure out what's going on around her and her party planning business, before someone gets hurt. For some reason they've been brought together again and he's not going to let her get away so easily this time, not with the pull she's got to feel too.
This story is full of energy and will have you continuously trying to figure out not only who did what, but what's gonna happen next. Will JoJo stop running hiding and away from her feelings for Ryker, or will she just continue to bury her heart in the sand? Will Ryker finally realize it doesn't matter which side of the tracks you're from, you both deserve to have love? Will JoJo's father ever be proud of her? You'll have to read SINFUL SECRETS to find out, but man, what an extremely exciting and emotional roller coaster this was! Melissa Ohnoutka sure does write a powerful story!
