Saving Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Many years ago Beckett made a promise to take care of his two foster brothers Blake and Cole. Beckett went pretty far to the dark side to accomplish this but since his brothers found love and started families he’s been trying to clean up Poughkeepsie to ensure their safety. Problem is there is still one man trying to ruin that for him and Vitullo, who is dying, has a whacked out wish he puts into play. I’ve looked at this series as more tongue and cheek since the first book. Yes it has many serious subject matters it deals with and the bond between the 3 foster brothers who were so different but yet loved each other unconditionally was the best part of the series but there was always what I would call a sadistic type humor also running through the books – Kyle’s mouth, Ryan’s crazy ex Trish, Beck and Eve’s “romance” and now the Vitullo plot of him wanting offspring and how he goes about getting it. I’ve found I like a little humor in my dark romances – it makes a good balance between all the violence and death.

These men and their women became like family during this series. Even though there was quite a bit of time between the releases of the three books it only took seconds of reading the new one to be right back to the feelings you had at the end of the last book. Its been a great ride and I am very happy with how the author chose to end the series – even with the whacked out thing – because that made something that was impossible possible and I think that is what Eve and Beckett needed to complete their story after the way it all started.
