Beckett Taylor’s quest to be a better man has brought Eve Hartt back into his life, but sometimes it feels like they’re bound together with barbed wire. Though he longs to love her without causing pain, the wreckage of their past continues to crash down around them.

Yet with the help of this brothers—and for his brothers—Beckett won’t stop trying. He’s determined to make them all a family, to make a life they want to live, and to make Poughkeepsie a place that’s safe to live it.

He can feel their futures balanced precariously on his shoulders: Blake and Livia and their children, Cole and Kyle and the new baby they’ve 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.

Prepare your heart and your head for a wild ride in this final installment of 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.


“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. 

Falls Review
A Whole Bottle

I love this series so hard! I love Debra and everything she writes. I have been a fan since she was writing fanfiction and was blessed to follow her into the world of a published author. When I first read Poughkeepsie I fell in love with Blake. This is where we are first introduced to Beckett. Although each book belongs to one of the brothers, Debra does an amazing job of building each character as the books progress. Saving Poughkeepsie is Becketts story and we finally get to see into the life of Beckett and Eve.

“Beckett had a lot of layers. She used to hate herself for falling in love with him, but now she felt like she might be the only one qualified to do so.”

 In the beginning we see Beckett as a power house, a lord of the underworld, and a force to be reckoned with. Beckett has big plans for Poughkeepsie and one of his plans is keeping Eve in his life and making her see how much she means to him. With a heart as big as the world, Beckett puts everyone above himself. If only he could see the good in himself and how much people love him. Eve is a hard woman, made that way by years of hurt and anger. She has very few things in her life that she loves, but she would give her life to protect them. She's a fighter who doesn't know any better. Afraid to let Beckett get too close, she can't seem to let him go either. Faced with an evil that is out to get her she can't let her guard down. When someone she holds close to her heart is hurt, what's a girl to do but get revenge? But when you go for blood, you have to make sure its not sloppy. Beckett will do anything to protect Eve and to help her bring down the man who destroyed her life. But can he protect Eve and all of Poughkeepsie at the same time? How much heartache can one person take before they shatter? 

“I’m tired of the way things were –the way they are. I’ve got too many people who deserve to sleep at night, not to be punished because they know me.”

This book is a roller coaster that constantly keeps you guessing. There is heartache, love, and joy. A Brotherhood that has strong bonds, loyalty that goes beyond reach and two people caught in the middle of a hurricane. There will be points in this book that you ask yourself "what in the world is she thinking?" You will probably need some tissues and also a bottle of wine. The whole gang comes together for one last hurrah. Blake and Livia, Cole and Kyle all play huge roles in this book as well. We get to see the big brother, protector side of Beckett and its nice to know that he's not just a hardened killer. True love is strong even when its bonds are tested. Only the strong survive, there is no place in this world for the weak. 

“Life was good: no one shot at him, Cole didn’t look like he’d been praying for Beckett’s soul all night, and Blake was standing in the fucking sunshine.” 

I gave Saving Poughkeepsie a whole bottle of wine! I love this book and the whole series. I am so super excited to learn that Debra is going to give us a prequel!! I can not wait to read it. If you haven't jumped on the Debra fan wagon I highly suggest you do! Nothing she writes is a disappointment and she's an amazing person to boot!
