live, and to make Poughkeepsie a place that’s safe to live it.He can feel their futures balanced precariously on his shoulders: Blake

just brought home, and Eve…always Eve. He wants their dreams to be real.
But murderers don’t just get Happily Ever After handed to them. They
have to wrench it away from Satan himself.

Good thing Beckett is prepared to do just that. After all, saving Poughkeepsie is the only way his story ends.

the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood series. Debra Anastasia does not disappoint
as she weaves the last chapter of a story that blends true love,
turbulent emotions, and life’s harsh realities into an uplifting tale
that calls to the good in each of us.

              Excerpt 1:

“I’m not worried about tomorrow. I’m worried about right now, with you, under this
Christmas tree.” Blake supported her neck as he laid her on the floor.
Livia turned her head. “You’d better convince me. So far you’ve talked about the dog
going to the bathroom, trash, and dirtiness.”
Blake kissed her jaw and turned her head gently, kissing her mouth as she bit her
lips together.
“Can’t I just convince you with my manly ways?” He wiggled his eyebrows.
He could, of course, do just that—but she shook her head. She loved the playful sparkle
in his green eyes. His five o’clock shadow just made him more handsome, framing
his kissable lips with scruff. 
“Okay.” He put his fingers at the bottom of her shirt, lifting it gently so he could
circle her belly button with his index finger. “You’re the sexiest, most
beautiful woman on this planet. So sexy, in fact, that I had to have you. I had
to make you bear my children because my universe and yours had to be combined.
Everything I’ve ever been needed to be buried inside of you, so deep, so full
of love that we created life. Twice.”
He lifted her shirt and kissed the tops of her breasts, whispering his devotion into her
skin. “And it’s never enough. Unless I can hear you coming, I can’t think of
anything else. All day every day. For years now. You’re that powerful, Livia.
This. Us. It’s so intense that years haven’t cured me. I can’t stop wanting to
make love to you.”
“Wow.” Livia smiled and pulled his face back to hers, kissing him and effectively
stopping his beautiful words.
Excerpt 2: 


“Come with me.” He led her to the beach again, but during dinner a few people had
been busy. It was now lined with an aisle of candles, and a man stood close to
the breaking surf, hands crossed, waiting. Someone had used the surrounding
sand as a canvas, creating a swirling pattern. Their names were part of the
What? She asked without a sound.
“I want you to marry me. Here. Now.”
Beckett let go of her hand and strode away. When he turned around, close to the water
at the end of the aisle, he hoped to hell she wasn’t running in the other


Review (Spoiler Free):

Honestly, I have been hooked on this series since that first moment Livia stood up for the homeless man, Blake, at the train station that one morning. Something about the way love just overrides classes and money and …. they just fell in love although their circumstances weren’t the best. Now their married, with children, happy…Sunshine on pages.

Then there were Blake’s “brothers”, bound by foster care, kept by their love for one another, Beckett and Cole.

Cole, a former priest in training falls for Livia’s sister Kyle. They were meant to be together from that first moment, but they didn’t think they deserved one another. Each page turn was a demand for them to put aside their differences and let love prevail. And when it did, while living a rough life, they find their peace in one another and with their family.

And Beckett Taylor…Oh, the big guy you just love and hate all at once. Eve Hartt was on a mission to bring down this man who took everything away from her–a fiance and a baby. But over time, she started falling for this guy. Talk about high drama from that first moment they got together… Theirs is a story that’s so back and forth, sometimes the pages won’t give away what these two want. Makes for some of the best, intense, storylines ever. They’ve made me hold my breath a few times over the course of these books.

From the very beginning, this story has been like an excellent drama found on HBO or Showtime (adult content and violence reasons) and it’s so addicting. Every page turn there was a scream of “Wait….No!” or a sigh of “Awwww…so sweet,” or another “Give me some answers!” because it was quite the suspenseful roller coaster ride, more intense with each incarnation. So worth the read.

Now, having to say good-bye to Poughkeepsie is the toughest part of all of this.The characters, the stories, I don’t want them to stop, ever! But like always, good things must end, and so must Poughkeepsie. Thankfully this place, these people will live forever, not just in the pages of the book, but in my mind and heart.

Loved it Debra! Congrats on Saving Poughkeepsie!
