Jake has married for the sake of The Family, and no matter what, he must make his marriage work. Emily Bracken is nothing like he imagined she would be. She's a firecracker, no denying that, but she is also a kind, thoughtful woman. Of course, she didn't want to marry him either. Now they can either make their lives miserable, or they can make the most of a bad situation.
Emily didn't know what to expect with Jake. He's a leader in The Family, cocky and an asshole, yet there is a darkness about him that she can connect with. She sees what Jake has to fight with every single day, but he's not alone anymore. She never asked to be part of this world—and neither did he. Together, they can find a way to fight for their shared life.
When The Family is attacked, Jake knows the time for commitment has come. He must fight for his friends, for his woman, and for what he wanted The Family to be, or lose everything.
Can four boys finally show their enemies they are not to be messed with? Can Jake bring himself to love Emily? Is there any way they can have a happily ever after? It's the final war. Who will win?

When an author goes outside the typical genre, it's always interesting to see whether the result will be successful. For author Sam Crescent, well-known for down-and-dirty MC romances, a series featuring the Mafia serves to prove the author is versatile in developing a series that is different than the norm, but packs the same trademark naughtiness she is known for.
This installment was actually the fourth installment in The Family series, with a title of OUR WAR. While I was able to easily follow the action happening in the book, I think readers should start with the first in this series for optimal enjoyment.
The stage is set with two characters -- Emily Bracken and Jake Carter -- who are not thrilled with the idea of an arranged marriage. Sparks are immediately generated between the two, proving there is a fine line between love and hate. Their dialog is especially snappy, with Emily holding her own as a strong character.
With a rival family trying to take over operations, the Bracken/Carter merger is put to the test. Trust is on the line as danger looms, threatening their newly developed feelings.
The characters, especially the secondary ones, provide for a solid storyline. As a result, I'm eager to read others in this series.
