About to turn 30 and being discharged from drug rehab, Trevor Roberts is sure he's hit bottom with nowhere to go but up. He soon learns that sometimes the bottom is just the beginning....

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 pause this riveting novel. Buckle up and enjoy the listen!

Warning: This novel is an unfiltered account of a young man's struggle to overcome addictions and it includes some graphic language, descriptive sexual scenes, and adult situations.

    " I challenge anyone to read this entire book and not recognize it for its intense honesty and fearlessness. The bravery that went into writing this novel floors me. As an addict in recovery, (you never "really" recover, you just find healthy alternatives that won't kill you) I can say that there was never a point where I didn't doubt the yearning for love, power, acceptance, and booze soaked oblivion like the main character, Trevor, feels. But you don't need to be an addict to enjoy the depth of emotion or the kind of page-turning,"ignore your friends and family because you have to find out what happens next", suspense this novel generously offers. The author, Ryan Winfield portrays the internal boxing match of head versus heart, soul versus libido, with stunningly, sometimes painful accuracy. And he positively KILLS IT- scooping up the remains and sculpting it into a breathtaking work of art. This book made me laugh out loud (the dialogue and banter are top shelf), sad, angry, horny, nostalgic... I could go on. Most of all, it gave me the necessary tap on the shoulder all addicts occasionally need. It gave me hope. Mr. Winfield, if you are reading this, I thank you. Meanwhile, I am anxiously awaiting my next literary fix. Bravo! "

    " so -so, not as good as I thought after reading the Sades series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trish Leger | 2/13/2014

    " Ryan has written an enormously raw and gritty book about addiction, the road to recovery, and those kinks in the road called life. Don't overlook this b/c some might say it's just too 'much' to read, get this book b/c it shows you just how beautiful and ever-changing life is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb | 2/3/2014

    " This was a FAST read for me -one day actually......I enjoyed the author's writing style the most - I also liked the setting as I am a northern California girl and could picture every place he wrote about. I am anxious to read his next novel coming out in October........I think many good things are to come from Ryan Winfield. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 1/22/2014

    " I liked the story. Just when you think the worst has already happened.... The writing style was different because it was written as if it were a transcript (i.e. using I said ....) It didn't take long to get used to the writing. I would be interested in reading another book by this author. "

    " Inspiring -- gives hope -- "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachelkohn | 1/14/2014

    " Good book. Good story. Written in an interesting format. I liked the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Everitt | 1/3/2014

    " I really wanted to like this book but it just wasn't what i expected from the description. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sonja | 12/18/2013

    " Was wavering between 1 and 2 stars. In the end, I just didn't enjoy this book. Having no personal experience with the level of drug and alcohol addiction described, I can only assume that it's a realistic--and somewhat disturbing--depiction of this type of struggle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie Traverse | 11/24/2013

    " Giving this 3.75 stars. Disturbing scenarios, riveting read, decent end. Didn't care for the format it was written in but considering it was related in first person I suppose that was how it was intended. If you want a quick intense story, read this! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 T.A. Munroe | 10/28/2013

    " Loved this book! Fast paced, but with a great protagonist I really came to know and care about. I rejoiced when he made good choices, cringed and moaned when he made bad choices. It tackles addiction head-on and doesn't let go. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 10/1/2013

    " I think it is great has got me not wanting to put it down "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele Whitecotton | 8/23/2013

    " This was a fast paced book about excesses. When an alcoholic is at rock bottom and is handed everything everyone could possibly want, he thinks the only place to go is up until everything comes crashing down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 8/13/2013

    " This is more of a 3.5 star book...The content was hard to read and it kept breaking my heart. The struggles Trevor went through and the realization that occured all in the end pulled at my heartstrings "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 7/12/2013

    " This book was fantastic. It really makes you think and can get a little dark at times. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Angela | 6/15/2013

    " I didn't get past the first 50 pages. I didn't believe the narrators story so it was hard to get into. I'm sure if I understood addictive behavior it would mean more to me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anita | 5/11/2013

    " About a drug addict, second chances, Ponsi scheme.....sad. Depressing but the portrayal of the manipulative wealthy employer was over the top, even disgusting. Are there really people out there like that? I hope not. "
