It s no secret that I am a HUGE fan of this author s other series, so when the opportunity came up to review this one I jumped I was a tad hesitant only because I know they are so different, and I wasn t sure what to expect.Here are my reoccurring thoughts while reading 1 Zyler, Tyler, Mylar Whatever your name is I hate you2 Candy, you are a bad ass and I love it3 Beckett, how does every girl not fall in love with you Beckett has to be one of my favorite bad boy characters ever I don t want to g [...]

    14. I am used to the zaniness of Debra Anastasia with Late Night with Andres and Fire Down Below This is an author that can take humor to a level where you are cringing.Poughkeepsie Begins is the polar opposite The raw emotion of the story just stunned me stupid at the completion More to follow closer to release dateC provided by author with thanks, in exchange for a fair review


    15. I m a newbie to the Poughkeepsie world I don t know why I haven t read this series before now, but I m so glad I started with Poughkeepsie Begins I m not sure what it was I was expecting, but this emotional and intense story wasn t it I really believe my reading experience was enhanced by the fact I did not re read the blurb of the book before I started it or read the blurbs of the other books in the series My introduction to the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood was fast and furious and left me a fan.Be [...]


    16. Review by Jen HagenOne of my favorite books of all time is Poughkeepsie and if I had to pick a favorite character, it would be Blake I love his simpleness and his broken thoughts My recommendation is to read Poughkeepsie first and then read this prequel Blake continued to win me over with his daily inner struggles and how he fights victoriously to win I m a huge music lover so it may be this common factor that binds me to Blake He knew that to the rest of the world it looked like he was standing [...]

Oh my goodness I m not even sure what to say This story is compelling and heart wrenching and had my emotions everywhere It s sad but full of hope at the same time It was a beautiful introduction to the series.Beckett, Blake, and Cole, are these complex characters who are deeply wounded from past experiences but find family in one another Even though hard things are happening it s really uplifting I had all these questions and just wanted to know why they were how they were because some of their [...]
