Debra did all the right things for me.

Poughkeepsie was different than any other book I have ever read.  EVER!
Loved it and Return to Poughkeepsie so much.

Return to Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia - Blog Tour, Review, and Giveaway!

 Author: Debra Anastasia
Title: Return to Poughkeepsie
Publisher: Omnific Publishing

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.

All things unspoken.
It is a brotherhood.

Becket Taylor is an off the charts bad mo'fo.
His life has been about all things bad.
But he's always done it to protect the ones he loves.

Currently in hiding and trying to turn his life of crime around, Beckett gets a phone call no one wants to receive.

Someone is missing, and it's enough to bring his reclusive self out of hiding and into harms way as he tries to save his family and the one and only woman he could ever love.

This is a story of crime, passion, the truest friendship and love story you could read.

If you thought Poughkeepsie was awesome, you haven't seen anything yet!

Return to Poughkeepsie hit all the right notes for me!
4.5 Stars


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.

Monsters in the Dark Series by Pepper Winter - Reading Order

Super Dark.  Super Beautiful. 
One that will haunt you in your sleep!
Other reviewers are giving this one 6 out of 5 stars...

Check it out:

""My life was complete. Happy, content, everything neat and perfect. Then it all changed.I was sold."

Tess Snow has everything she ever wanted: one more semester before a career in property development, a loving boyfriend, and a future dazzling bright with possibility.

For their two year anniversary, Brax surprises Tess with a romantic trip to Mexico. Sandy beaches, delicious cocktails, and soul-connecting sex set the mood for a wonderful holiday. With a full heart, and looking forward to a passion filled week, Tess is on top of the world.

But lusty paradise is shattered.

Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror.

Captive and alone with no savior, no lover, no faith, no future, Tess evolves from terrified girl to fierce fighter. But no matter her strength, it can't save her from the horror of being sold.

Can Brax find Tess before she's broken and ruined, or will Tess's new owner change her life forever?

A New Adult Dark Contemporary Romance, not suitable for people sensitive to grief, slavery, and hard to read subjects. A story about finding love in the strangest of places, a will of iron that grows from necessity, and forgiveness that may not be enough."

Here's the Reading Order Guide:

Tears of Tess, (Monsters in the Dark, #1)

Quintessentially Q, (Monsters in the Dark, #2)

Undeniable Series by Madeline Sheehan - Reading Order

This one comes with it's own warning!
I love it already!! <3
Not your typical, sappy, love story. It's all-consuming, soul-crushing, tear-your-heart-into-pieces story. It’s intense, gritty and raw, dark and disturbing, and it doesn’t happen overnight!

From what I understand - If you love SOA (Son's of Anarchy), you'll love this series...

Here's the Reading Order:

Undeniable, (Undeniable Series, Book 1)

Unbeautifully, (Undeniable Series, Book 2)

Unattainable, (Undeniable Series, Book 3)

Unbeloved, (Undeniable Series, Book 4) <---Cover Reveal and Release Date TBA
Undying, (Undeniable Series, Book 5) <---Cover Reveal and Release Date TBA
