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
Blake is one of those characters that I completely adore. There is something about this guy that puts the biggest smile on my face. Honestly I wish we would have gotten a little more of Blake and Livia in this story. But what we did read of them, I enjoyed. I love how much he’s grown throughout the stories. A totally different man from the guy we first met. Seeing him as a husband and father just warms my heart.
Cole and Kyle
After all that Cole and Kyle went through during the last book, I was ecstatic that they finally got the happy they deserved. Cole is one of those characters that it took me a while to warm up to. The first book I didn’t know about him, but now I do. I love how he is with Kyle and some of the great ideas he implemented in this book. Kyle will always be my favorite female in this series. Her spunkiness and fowl mouth won me over from the start.
Beckett and Eve
And last but certainly not least, there is Beckett and Eve. Beckett. My thug with a heart of gold. He is my man. I could read book after book about him. I love the way he always tries to do whats best for his brothers and Eve. Everything Beckett does is for the right reason no matter how wrong it is. He and Eve have a very complicated relationship from the start. It’s not easy. No matter how wrong it is for them to be together, you can’t help who you love. And they are perfect for one another.
One of the main parts of the story line was a little strange for me and took me a while to get into that part of the story. That’s probably why this wasn’t a five star read for me. The writing and characters are fantastic. This author puts the perfect amount of humor, sass, sex and emotion into her writing. And I can’t recommend the first book Poughkeepsie enough. It will forever be one of my favorite books!
