Poughkeepsie was one of my top reads of 2012 and one of those extremely memorable books. Blake counting smiles, my Beckett… It’s truly unforgettable. I love all these characters and Debra Anastasia is a kick ass writer. Saving Poughkeepsie was a little different than the first two for me in some ways, but I still loved reading about some of my favorite characters in their final book.

Blake and Livia

It was wonderful catching up the brothers of Poughkeepsie in this final book of the series. They have all come so far since I fell in love with them in book one. I was excited to see how things will play out for Beckett, Eve and Ryan Morales since everyone else in the story is settled amongst their heas. This book is written like the previous in the series where we get little bits of all the c

Saving Poughkeepsie was a solid conclusion to the Pougkeepsie Brotherhood series. Joining the brothers and the women who've stolen their hearts on one last ride. Will Beckett be able to save his town and keep his family safe?

"Never underestimate Taylor. He's driven by loyalty-a kind that makes him even scarier than you, my friend."

While Blake/Livia and Cole/Kyle make appearances, this was really Beckett and Eve's story. Is a HEA in the cards for the resident bad boy with a heart of

So here it is, the last book in the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood (although now we are getting a prequel) and I'm left feeling a little bereft, sad and a touch disappointed.

This series is nothing like any other but it's sooo hard not to want it to be. First off, each brother does not get his own book and while we were spoiled with basically getting Blake's story with the first book, the last two have been a mixed mashed story of everyone else's. Who am I kidding?? Since Beckett rode in in his shiny,
What a wonderful finale to such a heartwarming trilogy! I truly fell in love with the Poughkeepsie clan: Beckett, Cole, and Blake..of course, that includes their beautiful spouses too! The journey was an amazing one from start to finish. This wasn't just a romance book, in fact it wasn't even about one couple. It was about the three men, who had a majorly hard go of life when they were growing up in the same foster home. "Hard life" doesn't even begin to describe what they went through; but what ...more

The last installment in the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood series, Saving Poughkeepsie, was a bittersweet read for me. I’ve been a fan of this series and it’s cast of off the wall characters since I was first introduced to Blake and his endless tally of Livia’s smiles. My affair with this tale started on a train platform and after a long, drama filled journey, it ended wit

Woohoo!! More of the brotherhood!

More of Beckett!

Can't wait!!!
Loving Beckett ♥ woohoooo..YESSSSSS



I think sometimes Beck got a raw deal..his heart was always in the right place when it came to his brothers.

Really REALLY enjoyed this first I only wanted to read about Blake, so when the 2nd book was released and we got more of Beckett and then in the 3rd book..well I fell in LOVE..Thank you for the wonderful characters!!

Saving Poughkeepsie wraps up the story of the brothers and the whole gang in the Poughkeepsie series.

Poughkeepsie was truly a book that changed my life. Debra Anastasia became one of my favorite authors and she does it again with Saving Poughkeepsie. This is not a typical love story. It’s gritty, hilariously funny, violent, and yes, beautiful. All the brothers are here in all their glory.

All of the characters are very real and very flawed and you can’t help but fall in love with them, even Becke

There are stories that stay with you long after you’ve finished reading them. You know the one’s I’m talking about; they’re the stories you stay up reading until your eyes are too heavy to stay open and your kindle smashes you in the face. It’s the story where the characters feel so real, you find yourself thinking about them, worrying even, when you finish a chapter that doesn’t bring closure. Debra Anastasia weaves that exact brand of tale, and the finale of the Poughkeepsie series is no excep ...more
5 Amazing Stars!!!!!

This is the last Poughkeepsie book. I am so bummed. But it was perfect.

In the book was see a whole different side of Beckett. He is still Mr. Badass Poughkeepsie, but has a much softer side than before. He is still an awesome brother to Blake and Cole. But he turns into an amazing man with Eve. He still domineers a room but more in the sense of cleaning up Poughkeepsie. He just amazes the hell out of everybody. Still at times its like, this is flying right over your head... b

Poughkeepsie Series How will it end

Saving Poughkeepsie was like homecoming but with a bittersweet ending. While you do get to check in on Blake and Livia as well as Kyle and Cole, it was nice to see Beckett finally succumb to his own circumstances of whether his fate is meant to be/or not to be HEA with Eve.

You see Beckett really grow and develop throughout this and see him mature. He is still a badass, b

I could not wait to get my hands on this book.

This being one of my favorite series I am completely fan girling, over Eve.

She has got to be the most bad a$$ chick in any book.
She is a killer
A lover
A friend
A daughter

But she puts up this wall as if she doesn't have feelings.
Well guess what?
She does
And she finally reaches her breaking point.
And I wanted nothing more than for her to have an HEA.
Whether or not she does is something you need to discover on your own.

Of course, it was amazing. A perfect ending to a fabulous series...I'm sad to see them go, but I've loved to watch them leave! It's never a dull moment...full review to come with my tour date of 11/23. ...more

This is epic conclusion of the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood series.

What a ride it has been.

While all the brothers and their spouses make an appearance, this is, in principle, Beckett and Eve’s story.

He has earned quite a reputation even if everything he has ever done was to fight for his family. Now Beckett is really trying to abide by the law and be an outstanding citizen. Trying being the key word.

Eve is a survivor. She’s overcome many tragedies and grew up to be a strong, determined woman who wo

I have waited so long for this book. I needed Beckett. When it first appeared on my kindle I was a teenage girl getting her boob touched for the first time, I was nervous for it to happen but it's all could think about.

I had to know how it ended how the brothers saved Poughkeepsie? Did Beckett get his happy ending he deserved?

How Debra can go from writing some of the most inspirational and heartfelt words I've ever read to the most evil and malicious in one book is beyond me.

I am so sad that this series has come to an end, it's been a real adventure...
There were parts of this book that were amazing. It was action-packed at times and so funny, emotional and beautiful.
But then there were a few things that just bothered me, like the length of the book; my god, we could have done without about 100 pages of it. It was sooooo long and sooo drawn out at times, I got really bored. Some things in there were just pointless and bought nothing to the story. It w

My journey with the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood began several years back. A bunch of my friends were reading a story about a homeless man who counted the smiles of a young woman who travelled through Poughkeepsie train station every day. To be honest, I thought this wasn’t for me. The leading men were the above emotionally damaged homeless man, a man training to be a priest and a potty-mouthed gangster. Not the sort of fictional guys I would fall for.

The buzz around this series was not exaggerated, not one bit. What begins in "Poughkeepsie (Poughkeepsie Brotherhood, #1)", a story of a young women falling for a homeless man quickly turned into something I never would have expected. The Poughkeepsie series is hands down one of the most action packed and cleverly plotted stories I’ve read all year, with grit and ruination that you can't help but to love.

So Its been year 2012 since I read the first book and I became invested to the series. Again it has emotional moments hear and there and the brothers and their family are stronger and tight. This is Beckett's happy ending as it was taken to a halt much too long and should have ended in book 2, if only the plot have not drag to many loops and yet it stil anticlimactic again book 3 was like that too even though there was a lot

Oh, how I LOVE this series! This book was EVERYTHING I was hoping for, and more.
The third and final book in the Poughkeepsie trilogy is full of sweet romance, laugh-out-loud comedy, heart-wrenching drama, and edge of your seat suspense.

Blake and Livvie, Cole and Kyle, Beckett and Eve are all trying their damndest to continue living their lives in the wake of events from previous books.

OH good Lord, Deb, you nailed it!
This series of books ripped my heart out and put it back together over and over again. The story of these brothers and the women who loved them was raw and deeply emotional. I loved Beckett's story line the most; how he clawed his way to the good side of the law. And Eve...oh Eve. What can I say? She is by far the most interesting strong female character I have ever read. Tough as nails but soft as silk at the same time. One character I wanted to throat punch ov

Still loved the first two books though!
