Blog Tour - Return to Poughkeepsie (Poughkeepsie #2) by Debra Anastasia ~ GIVEAWAY

Return to Poughkeepsie  (Poughkeepsie #2) by Debra Anastasia
This is a contemporary romance/thriller (Rated NC-17)
Book Summary
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 Review

This sucks. And you know why. Because now, I have to rethink my top reads for 2013 blog post. This book has to be on that list and some other will have to come off. L
This may suck for me, but for this author, she hit a home run. Poughkeepsie, the first in the series, will forever stay in my heart. I love that the author brought this book to focus on another character but kept all the other players in play. I didn’t lose Blake. (*sigh*) I didn’t think this book would be as good as the first but it was.
There was action pact adventure, roller coaster rides of emotion, hot steamy scenes and laughs ever present. (I’ll just say Trish. She almost stole the show.) This book had it all and then some. I read unable to stop. Soaking it all in.
And I’m happy to note that there will be a book three. Please note, this book does not end in a cliffy. So no worries there. I’m just happy to explore more of these characters. I love it.
Overall report card is that all the characters were well developed. The plot line was sustaining throughout the story. The book kept my attentions. Most importantly, I would have no problem recommending this book ten times over.
I love Beckett. I love Cole.
My book boyfriend is Blake.  (always)

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.
