Release Date: December 30, 2013
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Book description:

Beckett Taylor is a murderer. Destruction and intimidation are his calling, his craft— whether he wants it that way now or not.He left Poughkeepsie to keep his brothers safe, to keep Eve safe. Set up with happy lives to live, they’re better off without him, right?

But all his willpower crumbles when he hears his brother Blake’s frantic voice on the phone. Mob forces have moved in on his old territory, and Livia’s been taken. In an instant, Beckett knows it will take an attack only he and Eve can execute to bring her back safely. All his self-imposed embargoes are torn to shreds, along with the new man he’s struggled to become.

“Brother, call Eve. I’ll be there soon.”

In this emotional and action-packed sequel to Poughkeepsie, Debra Anastasia conjures a tale of love at its most raw and ragged. With Beckett and Eve, how could we expect anything less? But even when it’s messy, not magical, true love perseveres. Real love finds a way—for better or worse until death does part.

AHHH!! I’ve been missing Blake and the gang for over a year!!! And now the tale of the three brothers continues!! 🙂

If you loved Poughkeepsie, then you MUST go now and purchase this sequel!! I may even dare to say that you’ll fall deeper in love with the characters!! I know I am EXTREMELY eager to read what’s next for a certain character that is introduced….a charming cop! 😉

Just like it’s author, this book is smart, funny, and brilliant! It was very well thought out and the story’s plot was exciting and gripping! I felt like I was reading four or five stories in this one book! You’ll get to sneak inside each of the couple’s lives. Join Cole and Kyle as they deal with some tough obstacles, witness Beckett mature but stay true to his fine self, and see what happens with our shy (but not so shy anymore 😉 ) Blake, and how his life with Livia has developed.

Plus, you’ll get to read a lot more hilarious liners from Eve and Beckett. (Oh, how I’ve missed you, you big goof.) And should I mention all the riveting suspense and drama? (Insert me yelling: ‘DR-AAAA-MAAAA!!)

I have to quickly note too that Cole really surprised me in this installment. The way he spoke to Kyle and the thoughtful things he did. I can’t. SMH. Good lord (no pun intended), I love him so much! He really captured my heart!

I really enjoyed Return to Poughkeepsie! Such a great story! I’m so excited for this new year because for one, we’ll get our hands on the third book in this series!! *crosses fingers* I want to see what happens with the cop!! 😉 ❤ ❤ ❤

Debra AnastasiaAbout Debra Anastasia:

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 bathroom humor.

Debra lives in Maryland with her family. You can find her at DebraAnastasia.com and on Twitter @Debra_Anastasia. But be prepared.
