Scarlet Drew has spent years trying to deal with her difficult cousin Ruby. However, Ruby has truly crossed the line with her latest drama. In fact, things have reached the point of no return for Scarlet. Ruby will pay. Of that Scarlet has no doubt. In any game of tug of war there is only one winner and this latest installment in this stellar series will indeed reveal who that winner will be.
Ruby thinks that she has more cards to play, and she has her own plans. However, as she is responsible for revealing Scarlet‘s relationship with her detective boyfriend, which caused that relationship to come to a sad ending, she knows that she must get the upper hand once and for all.
Meanwhile, the crime family has other drama that is in fact creating a dangerous situation for all of them. Scarlet’s aunt Lily is dealing with the fact that her adult sons are not speaking with her based on a long held secret that they have learned. As if all of this was not enough, there might be somebody on the inside that could break this family apart once and for all. So, from all angles, this crime family appears to be breaking apart. Can Lily and Scarlet get past their personal situations and team together to strengthen their family enough to wage the wars facing them?
This book is aptly titled because it just might be a fight to the finish on more than one level. This Drew Family series is fabulous. I love how Emma Tallon has made this family real. One way is their Sunday dinners, much like the Regan family on the Blue Bloods television series. Although the values and principles may differ in these two families, the bonds that tie them together are indelible.
While this book could work as a standalone, the dynamic that exists in this family is one that strongly develops over the course of the entire series. So my recommendation is that the series be read in order. I am so eager for the next book in the series. In fact, the moment these books become available, I have to stop everything and read them from cover to cover which is exactly what I did with Her Fight. It came to no surprise that this book was as addictive and compelling as every book in the series has been thus far.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
