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.
Saving Poughkeepsie” picks up with right after “Return To Poughkeepsie” with Beckett and Eve attempting to deal with the aftermath caused by one psychopath that is Rodolfo Vitullo. One would think that Vitullo’s primary goal would be to seek vengeance with how his very own Mary Ellen met her end but that was not really on top of his priority list. His atrocities had no bounds which in hindsight provided this story with one worthy adversary.
His only thought was to ensure that his bloodline lived on no matter what the cost.The old man wouldn’t just settle on just anyone to procreate with. He needed someone scary, someone dangerous and someone strong and smart enough to continue his heinous legacy .Who would better would fit that bill than the weapon known as Eve?
If you’ve read the first book you know that this plan is ridiculously impossible yet Debra Anastasia manages to effortlessly weave yet another captivating story further proving just how innovative she can be.
I personally could not even begin to tell you how interesting I thought the entire plot was. While that alone was a huge game changer for me it was yet again the characters that impressed me. All three couples are each in their own way right magnificent but it was always Beckett and Eve who overshadowed the rest.
Beckett and Eve are each in their own right cold-hearted killers but in this story we see this gradual change that was brought on by unconditional love. For me it was moving to see someone as dark as Beckett turn over a new leaf in the name of loyalty and love – love for his brothers and their growing families and most importantly his love for Eve. He would literally move mountains for any of them and in a sense he does just that with the entire Poughkeepsie community behind him.
It’s been almost two years since I wrote one of my all time fav reviews – Poughkeepsie. Back then I begged to see Beckett in a different light and our imaginative author does just that a million times over.
For me , “Saving Poughkeepsie” was beyond fantastic. Hats off to you Author Debra Anastasia for delivering such a magnificent conclusion to this series!
“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.
