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 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.
by Meghan March
I’m so happy that I finally had the chance to read a book by Meghan March. It’s been overdue for a long while and I can now say I don’t regret a single minute I listened to this audiobook.
As always, Andi Arndt and Sebastian “Unicorn” York are absolutely reliable in terms of performance. They just always deliver breathing life into the characters they are trusted with.
If you are a first time reader like me, this is not a bad place to start – while there are references to previous books and characters connected to Black Sheep, you will have no issue at all following this one.
Cannon and Drew are as lovable as they get and as relatable as you can relate to a mobster’s son and a somewhat famous woman hiding behind a wig and fake contacts looking for revenge. But those are just sides of their complicated lives.
Drew is hell bent finding evidence of her dad’s murder. She thinks she knows where to look but doesn’t know that the mobster’s illegitimate son will be her downfall. When Cannon and Drew meet their attraction is blazing from the start and it doesn’t take long for them to be totally wrapped up in each other. Insta? Yes, definitely, but did I mind? No. Not even a little.
As you follow Drew actually not uncovering a lot but still realizing that Cannon is deep down a good man, and Cannon falling for the mysterious Drew, you can’t help but be invested and hoping for the best, although you know it won’t end well.
Is the plot innovative? Not at all, but Meghan March still manages to pull you into the plot and live through every tension and twist and foreboding. And while I knew that there would be a cliffhanger, it still caught me off guard how BLACK SHEEP ended. I had one niggle towards the end that made me deduct a half star, when Cannon was a bit of a hypocrite and didn’t trust Drew to do right by him.
I can’t wait for the second in this Duet, White Knight, which will land on your apps in August!
