Happy Halloween! My children are past the age of trick-or-treating so today is (almost) just another day for me. I decided to celebrate anyways by stopping by my local cup cake shop and treating myself (I will, of course, be filled with self-recrimination afterwards but I’ll put in extra time at the gym tomorrow). What other gluttonous things did I do today other than eat a fantastic Wedding Cake Cupcake? I re-read Meghan March’s Dirty Mafia Duet.
OK….truthfully, I was just going to re-read book two. I’ve got housework to do. Then I started reading (and eating) and decided, “what the hell”, and went back to book one. Hence, my backwards cupcake imagery. How could I not? This is Cannon’s story, and it was long overdue. I ADORE Cannon! And it was so good the first time, I knew it would be just as good the second time.
Now, I read lots of great books by amazing authors but Meghan March is a unique author for me to read for one reason…..out of hundreds of authors I read, she is the ONLY author I read who writes books with cliffhangers. Why is that significant? I hate cliffhangers! I get extremely pissed when authors do this. I can’t tell you how many authors I no longer read because they jumped on the bandwagon and started writing cliffhangers or serials. Megan March is a whole different breed of author that, for some reason, I just can’t get enough of, and she is the ONLY author I make this exception for. And, I found her by accident! No joke, I bought a book by mistake and decided, since I had it, I might as well read it. I also plan my day-to-day schedule around her releases. Seriously, there are maybe 10 authors I will plan my life around when their latest book comes out and she is the only one who I know will not be giving me what I want, immediately and it doesn’t stop me from diving right in, as soon as it hits my Kindle. I KNOW I’ve got to wait 4-6 weeks for the next book. The problem is, she has such an addictive writing style, I can’t stop. Want to know how bad it can get? I had a football game AND a Megan March book to read. I took my phone to read and had my husband interrupt me every time my son took the field (yes, I’m going to hell for that one). She tells such powerful, emotional, angsty, HOT stories, I can’t say no, no matter how long I have to wait for my fix. And her plot twists…..OMG! I have thrown my Kindle, pulled all-nighters, and swore I’d never read her again just because of some of her plot twists. Her books are freaking roller coasters! They make you laugh and cry and want to scream and rage and, at the end, when you think it’s almost over, she throws you down one more steep dive and upside-down loopty-loop before you glide into the unloading dock….complete with wet panties, a racing heart, and the urge to do it all over again!!! And, I re-read them….frequently. Her Mount Trilogy, Forge Trilogy, Dirty Mafia Duet, Savage Trilogy,and Beneath Series are some of my all-time favorite books EVER!!! In 2 weeks, her Legend Trilogy begins and I’m already dying. No kidding. I’m going crazy.
I don’t know Ms. March. I’ve never met her, conversed with her, or even passed by her in any setting. But, I must tell you, she is one of the best authors I have ever read. Her passionate and emotional storytelling weaves a web around your soul and leaves you breathless and aching for more, each and every time. I don’t know what magical spells she is casting over her books, but she has me addicted to her words and that is something I really don’t mind! If you haven’t read any books by Ms. March, I’d start with her Beneath Series. I promise, you will not regret it!
And, what did I rate her Dirty Mafia Duet….the love story between Cannon and Drew? 5 stars, of course! Cannon is insanely sexy and what makes him even better is his strength and integrity (OK, his dirty mouth is delicious too). I’ve been fascinated with Cannon since he first appeared in the Dirty Billionaire Trilogy and Ms. March did not disappoint me! Drew is his perfect match…strong, brave, and passionate! She gives as good as she gets and together these two were dynamite! I had a few moments where I wanted to crawl in the book and beat the crap out of one of his siblings (Creighton Karas, you are a stubborn jackass) but this duet was sheer perfection! And the plot twist!?!?!? I did NOT see that coming. Meghan March, you have the most spectacularly vivid imagination, I can’t even wrap my head around some of the things you pull out of yours! I do know this much….please don’t ever stop!

Thank you Smallcakes of Ft. Myers for my AMAZING Wedding Cake cupcake. You created the perfect cupcake to go with a perfect book duet! Yes, I paid for it, but it was worth a shout out (and now I know where to go on my cheat days).
