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.


“Beckett looked from one face to another and then glanced up at the kids’ bedrooms.  Everything he needed was right here. Right now. He had to make this work.”

Things are stirring up in Poughkeepsie. Rivalries are high, the truce between Beckett and Rodolfo along with their respective clans is strained after the death of his daughter, and Beckett’s continuous attempts (and successes) of claiming turf.

Both Cole and Blake have families now, and the fear of retaliation is real.  Beckett and Eve must do everything in their power to keep their family safe…except Rodolfo has other things in mind. 

He needs an heir.  Someone to take over the family business since his tough-as-nails daughter is gone and his son is worthless.  And Rodolfo has the perfect person in mind to give him one…

Problem is, she can’t. Or can she?

“You do not decide a truce if over. We went into this together, and we’ll leave it that same way.  Need I remind you that you have much to lose?” Rodolfo wiped at his mouth. “Never love more than you hate, Taylor. It makes you weak.”

One thing no one expected, or counted on…love fuels a fire no one can quench…and it burns brighter than hate ever could when the ones you love are threatened. 

Everything could burn to the ground and love would rise up through the ashes…he always does.

“Our goal is this and only this: Saving Poughkeepsie.”

HOLY-MOTHER-OF—when I tell you this was a perfect ending to this story!?! I couldn’t have asked for a better story in Saving Poughkeepsie, I think this may have been my favorite.  I laughed, I cringed, I cried. I am going to miss these brothers, from their hard-ass exteriors, soft-quiet centers, and prayer-seeking loyalties.  I fell in love with Poughkeepsie all over again and if I lived there, I would do everything in my power to save it, too.

Fabulous work Debra, you delivered. You delivered BIG-TIME. Now, who wants to re-read the entire series with me?
