Return to Poughkeepsie (The Poughkeepsie Brotherhood #2) by Debra Anastasia

Return to Poughkeepsie is intense, tender, insane, sweet, cringe inducing and heart warming, a total emotional roller coaster.  AND I LOVED IT!  It's like Debra Anastasia pulls out your heart, throws it on the ground, kicks it, then picks it up to dust it off only to do it again and again.

While Blake takes center stage in Poughkeepsie, Beckett steals the show in Return to Poughkeepsie.  We see a side of Beckett we didn't get in Poughkeepsie, yet somehow I felt like I always knew it was there.  Beckett has the single most beautiful heart of any character I have ever met.  Its true he has done some pretty horrific things in his life but the reasons he did them somehow makes them less evil.  The way he chooses to live his life when he is away from everything is truly noble; I'd be proud to call him my friend.

I also loved getting to know Eve better in Return to Poughkeepsie.  There is so much of herself that she insists on hiding from the world.  I really felt connected to her in a way I never thought would be possible.  Who she is, who she was, and who she wants to be come together in one really amazing package.

I was actually really sad when Return to Poughkeepsie ended.  I NEED more of these brothers.  The story that was beginning to unfold for Cole and Kyle has me captivated already.  We get one chapter at the end of Return to Poughkeepsie but it was not enough!  I truly hope the wait for The Pougkeepsie Brotherhood book 3 isn't too long.
