REVIEW TOUR ~ BLACK SHEEP by Meghan March

Today we are thrilled to be sharing our review for New York Times bestselling author Meghan March’s first thrilling romantic suspense novel in The Dirty Mafia Duet, BLACK SHEEP


 
From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a story of untold truths and one man’s redemption in the Dirty Mafia Duet.

Every family has a black sheep.

In the infamous Casso crime family, that black sheep is me—Cannon Freeman.

Except I’m not a free man. I’ve never been free. Not since the day I was born.

I owe my loyalty to my father, Dominic Casso, even if he won’t publicly acknowledge me as his blood.

I’ve never had a reason to go against his wishes…until I met her.

Drew Carson turned my world upside down when she walked into my club looking for a job.

Now, my honor and my life are on the line.

Going against my father’s wishes might buy me a bullet straight from his gun, but black sheep or not, it’s time to make my stand.

She’s worth the fallout.

I’d really like to know how March’s mind works. If there’s one author who can spin a nail-biting tale, have you sitting on the edge of your seat from the first page to the last and still keep you guessing, it is she. Lovers of romantic suspense, get ready to be whisked into the world of gangsters because not only has the author cracked it, she’s left her readers dangling on a precipice. Black Sheep is book one in the Dirty Mafia duet, White Knight coming soon, so we won’t have to wait too long for the conclusion.

Cannon Freeman is most certainly the black sheep of the Casso family. Something he’s not at all happy about, either. I listened to the audio while reading and I have no words to describe how well Sebastian York narrated one of the male characters. Obviously, I never expected the head of the infamous New York crime syndicate to be pleasant but my word, this man gave me the heebie-jeebies. I have to say that March developed his persona extremely well and that no love lost feeling conveyed between Cannon and this individual was spot on.

Drew Carson is on a mission and well aware that by entering into the lion’s den, she’s putting her life in danger. I looked at what she was trying to accomplish from different angles and came to the conclusion that messing with the Mafia was asking for trouble. There’s no doubt that Drew is fearless and despite the fact that she doesn’t trust a soul, will all the precautions she takes be enough? I thought she was a tad reckless, seeing as she had little or no backup; however, her determination to get to the root of an injustice which had left its mark is commendable. Will she be able to pull the wool over the eyes of those who have shown an interest in her and come out unscathed? You’ll have to read the book to find out!

Even though I clearly saw how Cannon had struggled to stand up to his stepfather in the past, I loved the way he put his foot down when it was necessary. Him running the legit part of the family business is another story altogether. He’s demanding, has a no-nonsense attitude and expects the best from his employees, albeit his main concern is their well-being.

Andi Arndt and Sebastian York are an audio dream team. When I couldn’t read the book but was able to listen to it, the story’s feel was equally good or even better. There are some scorching hot scenes which they both pulled off perfectly and of course, never would I have expected less from March’s bold storytelling.

Definitely worthy of reading, the first book in this duet finishes off with promises for a mind-blowing follow-up. I’m looking forward to seeing how the two protagonists are going to get out of a very sticky situation. Roll on September!

Melanie Moreland – The Summer of Us

She was the light in my dark life. The sunshine that warmed me and made me smile.
We had one summer. One perfect summer, until the day it ended.
Years later, she walked back into my life. Older. Sadder. More beautiful than ever.
How can I prove to her that summer was real?
How do I make her see that boy that loved her then, still loves her now?
How do we get back to the summer when we were us?

Amy Briggs – The Inheritance

In the affluent seaside town of Port Henry, New York, Riley Maxwell inherits a house with more than one surprise she doesn’t intend to keep. When the local veterinarian meets her, he can’t resist pursuing a new summer fling. But, when secrets are revealed, they find themselves in more than just a summer affair.

Caisey Quinn – Summer Seduction

Emersyn Tyler is having one rough summer.

When her mom’s violent temper and recent diagnosis send her dad packing, she’s left to take care of her little brother alone.
Forget basking in the sunshine, she’s busy working full-time and taking summer classes at the local college so she can graduate high school. Until her friend drags her to a carnival where she runs smack into him.

The blue-eyed Adonis from her art history class.

Aiden Singleton isn’t looking for anything more than a meaningless hook-up. Finishing his graduate degree so that he can teach history and coach hockey in the fall, he’s got plenty on his plate without any added complications. But when a blond-haired beauty needs his help, all he can say is yes.

Heidi McLaughlin – By the Seaside

Dr. Danny Weatherly never had planned to take over his dad’s practice but when everything changedafter one awful day, the summer before college, he really didn’t think about much of anything at all — because his life was over. His true love hated him. . . and for good reason.

Kelly Taft is moving back to her hometown, Gray, North Carolina. Back to her family, back to her friends — back to some good memories and back to some memories that were not so good. In fact, she’s never gotten over that one horrible day that sent her running in the first place.

Danielle Pearl – Love’s a Beach

Liza Farrell is a townie and she has no qualms about it. It’s her quasi-boyfriend who has issues with the “summer people” and at this point she wishes he wasn’t her boyfriend at all.

With college looming just a couple of months away, she couldn’t be more eager to begin the next stage of her life. That is, until Noah Reed returns to town, shaking up both her present, and her future.

Katy Regnery- Single in Sitka

A single Dad. A personal ad. What could possibly go wrong?

When Seattle journalist, Amanda McKendrick, pitches a new story about the increase of bear attacks in Sitka, her newspaper sends her north for two weeks. While there, she answers the personal ad of single dad, Luke Kingston, looking for a little no-strings-attached fun to pass the time.

But the sweet, widowered father of three—who just happens to be a smokin’ hot state trooper—turns out to be a lot more than Amanda bargained for. As the days go by, she wonders if it’ll be possible to return to Seattle without leaving her heart behind.

Shari J. Ryan – The Secret at Sunset

When a girls’ weekend getaway turns into more than Alexa Cale bargained for, she sets off alone on a sunset stroll, seeking a small cove nestled in the ocean’s inlet of Cabos San Lucas. No one warned Alexa that the high tide will swallow the hiking path. Stranded on rocks between the beach and ocean, Alexa finds herself thankful for Lincoln Holt, an attractive survivalist who purposely loses track of the tide’s time.

Reunion

Two high school besties.
Two ex-boyfriends.
A 10-year high school reunion.
An unexpected surprise revealing a long-kept secret
There are just some nights you’ll never forget…

Reviewed by Anna on behalf of KFF

A novella by one of my favourite authors, this short but punchy story delivers the goods. Told in Des and Rose’s points of view, this is about two friends going to their ten-year high school reunion. A heavily pregnant Des managed to convince Rose, a successful career woman to attend the party and confront her old demons, ahem I meant her ex-boyfriend. Expecting to have a hell night, Rose bumps into a classmate she didn’t recognise and oh boy, is she in for a big surprise! Although a short story, Ms. Richman thankfully gives the reader the main characters’ back story which provides insight to their grown-up personas. I really enjoyed reading this one.

Adriana Locke

Crush

Delaney McCallister isn’t looking for a date. She just wants clean pajamas so she can go back home, flop on the couch, and relax. As the spin cycle begins, in walks the most delectable man she’s ever seen—one that clearly doesn’t belong in her small town. She doesn’t belong in his bed, either, but a simple little crush never hurt anyone.

Reviewed by Anna on behalf of KFF

This novella features Delaney a young woman who goes to the local laundromat, do her washing and go back to her flat. Instead, she sees the hot as hell Boone who is just passing through the small town of Dillon. Their eyes meet and lust at first sight happens; dirty laundry washed and cleaned and voila they end up in her flat. No promises were made but they sure made the most of his one night in town. This is a wham-bam-thank-you-kindly-mam moment. Just like the Fourth of July fireworks in the sky: hot, colourful and finishing with a big bang.

Now, one year later and days away from their wedding, disasters begin to strike in tandem, threatening to ruin the entire day. Jacob and Jackie work tirelessly to put out one fire after another, wondering if these catastrophes and mishaps are a sign from the universe that perhaps they aren’t meant to be after all.
Does true love really conquer all or are curses just not meant to be broken?

Shari J. Ryan

Love, Rose

Rue is blinded by the beauty of Casterton’s newest resident, but he can’t work up the nerve to approach her. Sadly, he notices her leaving Carol’s every week with a bouquet of flowers from someone who obviously has the courage he lacks.

He was once hers, could he ever truly be mine?

Rebecca Brooke

Ring Me

I am not a bully.
At least not anymore. I’d learned my lesson even before I had all my dreams ripped away.
Then I saw her. I knew I wanted her to be mine.
I made so many mistakes, but she let me in and gave me her heart.
Now I want to keep it forever.
How do I ask the woman of my dreams to spend the rest of her life with me? Simple, just ask.
At least I thought it would be that easy.

This is the third volume to The Red Ledger series and is a thrilling rollercoaster ride from the first chapter to the last. Tristan and Isabel’s adventures go on, the buzz of not knowing what’s about to happen in the next chapter will hold you hostage to your seat. If you haven’t read the previous books yet then I would advise you to read Reborn: Vol. One and Recall: Vol. Two.

Tristan was the ruthless assassin in the first two books and he has no recollection of his previous life. In this latest instalment, he might still have the skills of a hitman but things are gradually changing inside him. The character development of Tristan is especially noteworthy. He continues to be Isabel’s knight in shining armour, cold with others but gentle with the love of his life; it is quite fascinating to follow this hero’s metamorphosis. Will he ever recover his memory?

“I’ll kill for you. I’ll die for you. I’ll always love you more than I love myself. I’ll never know how to be anything else.”

Isabel is no longer the damsel in distress; she is now tougher and is ready to protect the life she now has with Tristan no matter what the cost. And to think that she was the innocent girl in the earlier books, now this lady has evolved into a hard-hitting heroine. Her love for Tristan has been tried and tested and the big showdown with the bad guys is inevitable. Will they survive this ultimate face-off?

“Sometimes you have to fight a war to have peace. And to win a war you have to be ruthless. It’s the only way.”

Well, I must say that Ms. Wild continues to enthral us with Tristan and Isabel’s ongoing saga. Their relationship goes from strength to strength but the road to their peace is strewn with dead bodies. This book is fast-paced and gives you a lot of heart-stopping moments. There were quite a few new characters that were introduced all obviously play vital roles, but thankfully the author’s style of writing makes it all so easy to follow and doesn’t confuse the reader. I had mixed feelings with the last chapter because it wasn’t what I expected. Is there a happy ever after for these lovers? If you want to find out you have to read this book. I highly recommend that you do.
