Review: Sinful Secrets by Melissa Ohnoutka

Sinful Secrets Sinful Secrets by Melissa Ohnoutka
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I'm erring on the side of caution with my star rating. I'm still not sure how to really rate this so I did a balance. Parts were worthy of 1 or 2 stars and some were worth 4. So there you go with my calculation :D

Let's be frank. The cover and blurb of this book are ANNOYINGLY misleading. I expected suspense because that's what it stated. But with that cover, I also expected some sexy. Or even some romance. The romance part of this book was BARELY touched upon.

This was romantic suspense... or suspenseful romance? While a connection was created between the main characters, Jojo and Ryker, and they were even given a past hookup, the details were vague. I'm not sure if it was intentional or not. But even their present encounters lacked chemistry so it could just be that the romantic side of their relationship was meant to take a back seat to the drama of the plot.

To me, the suspense and mystery and drama of the plot took centerstage, and that was okay. This story had secrets, betrayals, murder, doubt, confusion, and plenty of action. It was an edge-of-your-seat introduction, for me, to this author's style and I recommend it to those who can appreciate action and suspense.
