Product Description

Product Description

It ends with the beginning. This legendary, indie, cult-favorite series ends its tale with the story of the Poughkeepsie brotherhood before the tattoo. Before the train station, before the church, before a criminal empire, there was a foster home and three teen boys who weren't related by blood. But damn if they aren't closer than most blood families by their choice.


Still in high school, Beckett is already laying the groundwork for a grander life ahead, one where his brothers want for nothing and get some respect for once. But even as he plans, Beckett must decide if he’s ready to make that choice—diving into a life that trades his chance at a future, his chance at something as simple as first love with a girl named Candy Cox, for the chance for his brothers to find happiness.


Blake, Beckett, and Cole’s devotion to each other is forged by fists and the driving need to belong somewhere, to do more than just survive this life. Readers of the series know they each get there in the end, but before we count smiles, we must first shed tears. These early days of the Poughkeepsie brotherhood will play on your heartstrings before serrating them with a knife; they’ll lift your soul with music, only to leave you with nothing but a desperate prayer for hope.


And when you reach the end of the beginning, you’ll be ready to start the series all over again.

After I had read the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood series I debated with myself whether to read this one. I like where all the characters were at the conclusion of the series and didn't know if I wanted to experience the pain of the brothers beginnings. I am so glad I did, this a great story. Emotional and painful? Yes!

Blake really got to me in this story, and then Cole - Beckett is my hero ( even though he does 'bad' things).

Thank you Debra Anastasia for a wonderful story of the bonds of friendship that never fail. I think we all yearn for this kind of bond and perhaps that is why we are drawn to stories of it as not many of us actually find it.

The characters Debra has created are wonderful, Beckett & Eve; Cole & Kyle; Blake & Livia will live with me for a long while as will, Mouse, Summer, Wintery, Emmie, Ryan, John, Candy, and others.

This story made me aww, swoon, cringe, cry and fall in love. I adore a tale about friendship/brotherhood even more than a romance (this has both). I also can't get enough when the characters are survivors of hell yet still possess good hearts. Poughkeepsie Begins has everything I want and need in a book.

Blake, Beckett and Cole come from terrible backgrounds. Many heartbreaking details are given. In a world trying to swallow them up, they find a safe harbor in each other.

Beckett is also at a crossroads in his life. He can try to hang his everything on the chance of first love, or he can follow a dark path into a world of big payouts and big consequences.

I highly recommend this read. The plot felt authentic, no eye rolling moments. I experienced the strength and pain soul deep. I also gave several smiles to Beckett's charm. It pulled all my heartstrings and left me wanting more. The storyline is beautiful, ugly, sad and uplifting all in one go.
