Every story has a beginning and so Debra Anastasia takes her readers where it all began. The beginning of the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood series where the lives of Beckett, Blake and Cole are intertwined with one another in more ways than one. In this prequel novella, Poughkeepsie Begins, Ms. Anastasia takes us back to the time where Beckett, Blake and Cole are teenagers and in doing so, readers like myself can witness and understand that their strong friendship and brotherhood. Their ties and bond to one another was stronger than blood. I loved that author was able to showcase that these young men endured so much in their youth in which shaped them to the men that they are today. Ms. Anastasia gave readers an in-depth perspective of what these young man had endured and experienced in the foster care system. Readers were able to witness the different personalities of these young men especially Beckett's since we were able to see more of his selflessness and caring nature. So if you are looking for a series that highlights and showcases loyalty, brotherhood, unconditional love, sacrifices and redemption then I highly recommend you to read the Poughkeepsie Series. Trust me when I say that Beckett, Blake and Cole will find a way to steal your hearts.

P.S. Though Poughkeepsie Begins was a prequel to Poughkeepsie, I higly recommend you to read and start with the first book, Poughkeepsie in order to grasp, understand, and feel for the characters.

And so it begins...

At the core of Beckett, Blake, and Cole's relationship is absolute trust and devotion. They may not be related by blood, but they're true brothers in every since of the word, helping each other to feel like they belong and giving one another a way to be more than they were.

Through the battles of loneliness, fear, and pain, the brothers have stood by each other, never leaving anyone behind, believing in one another and paving the way for them to survive their messed up pasts and maddening presents.

The Quiet One
The Broken One
The Reckless One

All three damaged in irreparable ways but somehow moving forward out of sheer will and desperation. Blake's issues leave him seeking solitude away from the light, shrouding himself in darkness in order to keep the monsters at bay. Cole loses himself in his psyche in order to endure his tormented memories and shield himself from the pain. Beckett is clearly their leader and he's the perfect choice because he goes out of his way to take care of those closest to him and do the kind of things that may not make him moral and honest but it definitely illustrates how he protects his own at all costs to himself.

The brotherhood Beckett, Blake, and Cole share is one that was established early on in order to survive foster care, but it continues because they willingly fight in each other's corner. Nothing is more important than protecting their bond and being available at all times so they never have to endure anything alone. And, this idea is meticulously illustrated throughout Poughkeepsie Begins.

“Never Alone”

Poughkeepsie Begins Debra Anastasia

Our journey started with Poughkeepsie, then Return to Poughkeepsie and Saving Poughkeepsie, but Debra Anastasia takes us to the beginning where it all started.
In Poughkeepsie Begins you get a picture of what three brothers, maybe not by blood but by circumstance go through in the foster care system. Beckett, Blake and Cole were all dealt crappy hands in life and the one’s they should be cherished by instead abused and mistreated them at very young ages. Put into the Foster Care system these three beautiful children fell under the same roof and forged a bond so incredibly strong and so protective of each other it was simply amazing. Their struggles, their deep seated fears, their violent hatred, and their survival to want for naught and be respected and just simply fit in somewhere and even the first love.
Beckett seems to be the parent of the group and shoulders most of the responsibility on making sure his brother’s get the respect and want for nothing. At such a young age he has life altering decisions to make and which crossroad to take. One of power, money and respect and lawlessness or one for his future. You can tell he’s torn even though he says his brothers will always come first. He wants the best for his brothers. For the first time to actual feel an emotion of love for other than his brothers is a big deal. His Pink Princess did not belong in a life like his no matter how he felt.
Before the tats (by the way I want that tat), before the train station, before the separation, before the everything. This is the beginning and it will rip your heart out in a brutal but loving way. This series is so worth a multiple read. I can’t seem to get enough of Beckett, Blake and Cole. Can there be such a thing as a “Good” “Bad Boy” because that’s what Beckett is. From his charm to his enormous heart. 5* and a box of tissues for the ugly cry’s for sure.

I'm not even sure I can find the right words. Going back in time and learning about Beck, Cole and Blake, how they come to be the impenetrable force they are was as heartbreaking as it uplifting. The obstacles they faced head on, together, for each other, would melt the coldest of hearts. This perfect story was not without Ms. Anastasia's trademark humor. Isn't that right, Mylar? Skylar? Crylar? This is the perfect ending to the best beginning.
