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!
