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.

What an amazing way to end a fantastic series. I fell in love with the Poughkeepsie crew years ago and I am so sad to see them go. I think they could go on forever and I would be happy.

Debra Anastasia is such a smart writer. She brings all the great elements into her stories. Saving Poughkeepsie had them in spades. She gave us such a different side to everyone in this book and it really just rounded all the characters out and made me love them even more.

This book had all the feels. There were moments of heartbreak, shock, fear, love and laughter. As much as these books are about the brothers, Beckett, Blake and Cole, the women are just as strong and kick ass. And I am not just talking about how Eve is a professional killer. Their personalities are just awesome. I love Kyle and her dirty mouth the most I think. She has taken a back seat to Eve and Livia but we saw her come into her own in the book. It was sweet and beautiful to see her changes. But this was still there:

“No, seriously, let me get a shower. My vagina smells like a set of nuts.”

This book is seriously amazing. The story line that continues from book 2, Returning to Poughkeepsie was executed to perfection. The plot twists and turns that made my mouth gape open with the genius of Ms Anastasia.

Please if you have not picked up this series, do it! You will not be disappointed.
