Blog Tour Review and Giveaway: Return to Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia

Return to Poughkeepsie is finally here! There is a Rafflecopter giveaway at the end of the post with great prizes. In addition, one WiLoveBooks reader will get ebook copies of both Poughkeepsie books. Just comment to enter!

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.

My Thoughts:
 I loved this book. Return to Poughkeepsie takes place after Poughkeepsie, when Beckett leaves town to keep his brothers and Eve safe. Our favorite characters are back and we get to see how they are doing. We also get some new and interesting characters. It is Beckett's book, so it is dark and intense like he is. Just like the first book, it grabs you, makes you feel all the feelings, and doesn't let go. I was so excited to find out there will be a third book in the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood series. We get a resolution, but the story is not over. If you liked Poughkeepsie, you need this book. If you haven't read it, now is the perfect time to start. You'll laugh, cry, swoon, and probably cringe. Seriously, these books are so good.

My Rating: *****
Steam Factor: !!!!
*Notes: Language, violence, some steamy scenes are a bit intense.

Where to get it:

Barnes & Noble

Debra Anastasia is busy, just like every other mom. There's dinner, the dogs, the two kids, the two kids, and her ongoing battle with...ahem... digestive issues, which combined with her adolescent boy sense of humor makes for colorful and sometimes cringe-worthy social media updates. Her first love and crowning achievement is her thriving career as the weirdest mom on the block.
Her writing started a decent handful of years ago when--along with the animals and humans in her house--the voices of characters started whispering stories in Debra's ear. Insomnia was the gateway to plots that wouldn't give up, wouldn't let go. Now they stalk her everywhere. Halfway through making lunches, a twist takes hold and--fingers full of peanut butter--she finds somewhere, anywhere to write it down.
She's eternally grateful to Omnific Publishing, which has now published four of her books: two in the Seraphim Series and two in the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood Series, as well as her novella, Late Night with Andres. That one is special because 100% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research. (So go get it right now, please!) She also very much appreciates her open-minded readers, who embrace everything she has to offer, with a focus on anti-heroes and bathroom humor.
Debra lives in Maryland with her family. You can find her at DebraAnastasia.com and on Twitter @Debra_Anastasia. But be prepared.
