SOUTH OF BIXBY BRIDGE by Ryan Winfield
“From New York Times Bestselling Author Ryan Winfield, a sexy and shocking literary debut.
What would you do if you weren’t afraid? That’s the question facing young Trevor Roberts as he’s being discharged from drug rehab, sure that he’s hit rock bottom with nowhere to go but up.
With more twists than California’s Highway 1, the intimate narrative follows a young man on a wild month-long ride to the dizzying, drunken heights of Napa Valley excess where he falls fast for his new boss’s intoxicating wife and becomes entangled in a strange threesome affair. But things soon begin to unravel as Trevor is drawn into a secret world of sex and scandal, only to have his lust for success drag him down again through a phantasmagoria of hedonistic hell.
“Shocking and unapologetic“, South of Bixby Bridge barrels along with the “frenetic pace of a Hollywood blockbuster,” delivering “poetic prose loaded with images”. With gripping drama, witty dialogue, and sexy, jaw-dropping glimpses into the nouveau-riche underworld of California’s wealthy elite, you won’t be able to put this riveting new novel down. Buckle up and enjoy the read!”
MY REVIEW (from August 2012)
South of Bixby Bridge is Ryan Winfield’s debut. Couldn’t put this book down. A wonderful read of self discovery. What you think is his hitting bottom (loses house, girlfriend, job, no money) he gains most back, just to lose again. Loved the connection of the journey with his Porsche.
