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.

She walked right up to the desk without a glance in his direction and addressed the man behind the counter in a sweet, Southern drawl that sent his libido into overdrive.
“I’m supposed to meet a cop here. You know where he went?”
Ryker straightened to his full height next to the counter not ten feet from her. What was he? Invisible?
Seeming confused, the man looked from her to Ryker then pointed in Ryker’s direction.
“Oh,” she said, turning her attention on him. “Sorry ‘bout that. I was looking for a uniformed officer. A city cop.” She smiled politely, her beautiful green doe eyes locking with his.
He waited for recognition to hit.
It didn’t. He swallowed dryly.
“Hello, Ms. McNamee, I’m Deputy Ryker Kane. This is uniform in our small town.” He stretched out his hand and again waited to see if she remembered. Nothing. Not even an inkling.
“Nice to meet you, Deputy Kane.” She took his hand, peeked at the badge on his tan shirt, and gave him a firm shake. Just like he remembered. First glance and you’d think this woman was an easy target. Stick around long enough and you’d get your ass kicked.
“I’m here about a missing truck.” Jump to the chase. It was probably best she didn’t recall their brief interlude anyway. He’d like to keep his pride intact.
“Missing truck? But my truck’s not missing. See? It’s right over there.” She pointed a slim, non-manicured finger to the side of the building where the hood of a bright yellow truck peeked through the mini-blinds.
Well, hell. There it was. How did he miss that eyesore?
“I am missing my crew, though. Don’t suppose you might know where I can find them?” She gave him a half smile and a fizz of sexual awareness pinged low and deep, shocking the hell out of him.
“I questioned two men a few hours ago back in Bram. They’re the ones who reported the truck missing.”
“Bram? I see,” she wrinkled her brow. “What did they say?” Long, slim neck taut, her head tilted to one side, she looked ready to pulverize someone, and all he could think about was what the hell that soft exposed skin felt like beneath his tongue.
He refocused. “Ms. McNamee—”
“It’s Miss. But you can call me Jo Jo.” His muscles tightened at the name, his mind playing cruel tricks as flashes of their night together assaulted him, heat jabbing deep. They’d made out pretty hot and heavy after she’d clocked him using one of her karate moves while they were fooling around. Who knew she was a fourth degree black belt? He remembered the sensation of her perfect body against his like it was yesterday.
He cleared his throat, tried to get the thudding pulse at the base of her smooth, slim neck out of his mind. “Okay. Miss McNamee, how did the truck get here?” No way in hell he’d call her Jo Jo. Too much damn shit he didn’t want to deal with tied to the name, not to mention the woman.

SINFUL SECRETS by Melissa Ohnoutka
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! I received an ARC via IndieSage through NetGalley in exchange for an honest blog tour review.
