harsh realities into an uplifting tale that calls to the good in each
Beckett's book is everything I wanted it to be times a
thousand, seriously, Poughkeepsie lovers are going toinhale this book.I read this on a warm sunny day, spent the
whole day inside completely absorbed in this story.
I was trying to figure out what genre this story was,
romance, thriller, crime, contemporary adult, too hard to pigeon hole this
series because it has absolutely everything.
Things have changed a lot in Beckett's life since we first
met him, he was a criminal, the king of Poughkeeepsie's underworld.The one constant about him was the love he
had for his brothers Blake & Cole.
His brother's lives
have changed, they are both married now to "white bread" and
"fairy princess."Blake and
Livvy (white bread) now have two children,Cole and Kyle (fairy princess) are desperate to adopt a child as soon as
they can.They are moving forward with
their lives and it makes Beckett feel so good to see them doing so well.
The other thing that makes Beckett feel good is his
beautiful lady, Eve (killer).He
completely loves and adores this woman.She is everything to him and the feeling is mutual from Eve.They have returned to Poughkeepsie and the
city is very different, there are some shady people who are determined to take
control of the city.
Beckett has had a lot of time to reflect on his life and
what he sees his future being like.He
makes a decision that will ensure Poughkeepsie is a safe place for his family
to live and raise children in.He wants
to give back to the community but it will not be an easy road with Victor
Vitullo looming in the background.Vitulllo is determined to secure his bloodline and his legacy and will
stop at nothing to get what he wants.
Hang on to your seats because this book is about to take you
on one hell of a ride.There is one
particularly heartbreaking moment, okay there are quite a few but when you get
to 'that' moment that will forever stay with you, you'll know what I'm talking
about.There is tragedy, death and new
The transformation of Beckett into the man who we already
loved to what he becomes in this story is just wonderful.That heart of his doesn't just pump blood
through his body, it breaths life back into Poughkeepsie.
"And baby, wait until you
see - I'm making Poughkeepsie so goddamn safe God himself
could take a shit with the door open on Main Street."He spread his arms wide.
"You should put that on the town sign." - Beckett
I loved every moment of this story and give Debra a standing
ovation for this stunning conclusion to this fantastic story.
I give this 5+ stars
Debra Anastasia is busy, just like every
other mom. There’s dinner, the dogs, the two kids, the two kids, and her
ongoing battle with…ahem… digestive issues, which combined with her
adolescent boy sense of humor makes for colorful and sometimes
cringe-worthy social media updates. Her first love and crowning
achievement is her thriving career as the weirdest mom on the block.
Her writing started a decent handful of
years ago when–along with the animals and humans in her house–the voices
of characters started whispering stories in Debra’s ear. Insomnia was
the gateway to plots that wouldn’t give up, wouldn’t let go. Now they
stalk her everywhere. Halfway through making lunches, a twist takes hold
and–fingers full of peanut butter–she finds somewhere, anywhere to
write it down.
She’s eternally grateful to Omnific
Publishing, which has now published four of her books: two in the
Seraphim Series and two in the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood Series, as well
as her novella, Late Night with Andres. That one is special because 100%
of the proceeds go to breast cancer research. (So go get it right now,
please!) She also very much appreciates her open-minded readers, who
embrace everything she has to offer, with a focus on anti-heroes and
Debra lives in Maryland with her family. You can find her at DebraAnastasia.com and on Twitter @Debra_Anastasia. But be prepared.
