Title: Sinful Secrets
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.

Is this the author’s first book? NOOOOOO!!! But apparently I’ve been living under a rock and this is the first for me. You know that book that literally has you on the edge of you seat the entire time while reading it? This could be the book for you. You’ve got just about everything in here: the need for approval, evil people, a kidnapping, disastrous sabotage, obsessed friend, college fling turned “Mmm”, and of course, danger. How am I gonna write this without giving anything away????!!!!!
Jo Jo is an event planner who is trying her hardest to impress her father (who isn’t happy about her career choice) by planning a party for his company. But it’s not that easy of a job considering there is theft, sabotage and of course the evil people who just can’t seem to stay out of it. Things start to look up when Jo Jo’s former fling shows up, but then there are trust issues that rear their ugly heads.
Needless to say, Ryker is shocked when he’s put back on a case he hadn’t worked on for a while, to find his old flame in trouble. He’s even more shocked when he finds out that she’s directly involved (through her father/girlfriend) to the case and is now not only trying to solve the case, but trying to keep her safe too. Although Jo Jo doesn’t want to trust him so easily, Ryker works his way back in to her good graces and the love between the two is great. But the danger is still there and sacrifices have to be made.
All in all, this was a good introduction to the author for me. I liked her writing style and she kept me glued to the story, even when I thought I had everything figured out. This is a great suspense romance and I would definitely recommend it.
