Reading next: Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia

Hello Lovelies! I am on cloud nine right now. First  I have to give a HUGE THANK YOU to Debra Anastasia for sending me copy of Poughkeepsie to review.  I have been wanting to read it since I seen Mariann's beautiful review for it on her blog Belle's Book BagTHANK YOU my naughty twin for introducing me to another author. Definitely  have to give a BIG THANK YOU to Sam, Elena and Rhonda at  Awesomness for having me linked on their blog where Debra found me. You ladies Rock!

I am almost finished with Rock Chick, so I will be reading Poughkeepsie either tonight or tomorrow. I look forward to reading it.  Ok all my blogger buddies I might need help as I never reviewed a book for an author before. I am sure there are rules etc.

by Debra Anastasia


He counts her smiles every day and night at the train station. And morning and evening, the beautiful commuter acknowledges him—just like she does everyone else on the platform. But Blake Hartt is not like the others . . . he’s homeless. Memories of a broken childhood have robbed him of peace and twisted delusions into his soul. He stays secluded from the sun, sure the world would run from him in the harsh light of day.

Each day, Livia McHugh smiles politely and acknowledges her fellow commuters as she waits for the train to the city. She dismisses this kindness as nothing special, just like her. She’s the same as a million other girls—certainly no one to be cherished. But special or not, she smiles every day, never imagining that someone would rely on the simple gesture as if it were air to breathe.

When the moment comes that Livia must do more than smile, without hesitation she steps into the fray to defend the homeless man. And she's surprised to discover an inexplicable connection with her new friend. After danger subsides, their smiles become conversation. Their words usher in a friendship, which awakens something in each of them. But it’s not long before their bond must prove its strength. Entanglements from the past challenge both their love and their lives.

Blake’s heart beats for Livia’s, even if her hands have to keep its rhythm. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love never fails. Love never fails, right?

In an interwoven tale of unlikely loves and relationships forged by fire, Debra Anastasia takes readers into the darkest corners of human existence, only to show them the radiant power of pure adoration and true sacrifice. Complicated families and confused souls find their way to light in this novel, which manages to be racy, profane, funny, and reverent all at once.
