review

The Brothers are back! The Brothers are BACK!!!

Everything you’ve loved about the Poughkeepsie Gang? It’s here in this, the final installment of the series. Reading this book was like getting the perfect Christmas present for me. It perfectly ties together a story I love beyond comprehension, and characters I feel are family. Every once in a while you read a story that truly alters the way you look at things. It’s even better when you had no inclination just how much reading this authors words would touch not only your heart, but you as an individual. The Poughkeepsie series did just that for me. I was admittedly late to the station for this one, but once I got there I could never, ever turn back.

Debra Anastasia has done an amazing job taking us on a heartfelt journey. This story isn’t your typical love story. It’s raw, its human, and it’s powerful beyond words. Debra’s uncanny look at life and social interaction is bar none. With her wit and unmistakeable sense of humor she causes you to look at every day life differently. Society has taught us that we aren’t supposed to love the bad guy. How can you not, when his name is Beckett Taylor? He loves fiercely, and shows his love in a way that should make each of us uncomfortable, yet we can’t help but fall and fall hard for him.  Blake and Livia, Cole and Kyle? Each of them so real. Their stories are ones that each and everyone of us can relate to on some level. In some way, each of us is a part of those characters. That’s Debra’s talent.  She writes in a way that pulls you in. She doesn’t just pull you in to this story, she pulls you in to their lives. She pulls them into your heart. In your heart is where they will stay. This story will sear your soul.

I am sad that this journey has come to an end but am blessed to have found my ticket when I did. This ride gave me something I didn’t realize I needed.  Take the time, love hard, hug tighter.  Now I too count smiles

About Debra Anastasia

There are a lot of eyes in Debra Anastasia’s house in Maryland. First, her own creepy peepers are there, staring at her computer screen. She’s made two more sets of eyes with her body, and the kids they belong to are amazing. The poor husband is still looking at her after 17 years of marriage. At least he likes to laugh. Then the freaking dogs are looking at her—six eyeballs altogether, though the old dog is blind. And the cat watches her too, mostly while knocking stuff off the counter and doing that internal kitty laugh when Deb can’t catch the items fast enough.

In between taking care of everything those eyes involve, Debra creates pretend people in her head and paints them on the giant, beautiful canvas of your imagination. What an amazing job that is. The stories hit her hard while driving the minivan or shaving her legs, especially when there’s no paper and pen around. In all of the lies she writes hides her heart, so thank you for letting it play in your mind.

Debra is eternally grateful to Omnific Publishing, which has now published five of her books: two in the Seraphim Series and three 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!)
