Review ~ Return to Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This sequel to Poughkeepsie was a roller coaster of emotions. I laughed, cried, and sat on the edge of my seat. The characters were well written with all of their flaws and strengths. I truly enjoyed seeing the cast of old characters, especially Blake and Livia. I wished there was more of them.
The story is about Beckett, but it’s told in multiple POV’s. Eve, Beckett’s love interest, was pretty kick ass.
I’d say the book was a bit steamy, hot.
I honestly can’t wait until the next one.
I recommend this to anyone that likes high action, lots of laughs, heartbreaking thoughts and confessions, reunion of the brothers, and a misfit family that loves so much.
Beckett Taylor is a murderer. His calling, his craft are destruction and intimidation—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. An unknown enemy has 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. All his self-imposed embargoes are torn to shreds, perhaps 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 for worse until death does part.
