When he approaches her at the market, he has no idea the next three weeks of his life would change him forever.
It’s the late 1980s, summertime, on the North Shore of Long Island. The air stirs with possibilities as it often does during this time of year. And so begins the romance between one Hispanic seventeen-year-old male, on the verge of manhood and ready to conquer the world, and one beautiful and intelligent young woman named B.
It is much more than romance, though. B will forever become a part of this young man’s soul. He will never forget her.
This is a coming-of-age story, a love story, replete with milestones, tangled emotions, and adventures that are the embodiments of first love. Not just for the young, but for the
young at heart.
Praise for Last Exit to Montauk
“A romance that begins in the heat of a Long Island summer bares two young souls
to new love, intimacy, and tragedy. Highly recommended!” – Lawrence Kelter, bestselling author of Back to Brooklyn, the sequel to My Cousin Vinny.
“Raw, real, and packed with heartfelt emotion, Last Exit to Montauk is a sentimental love
story of a whirlwind romance that stands the test of time, spinning the perfect tale of the
challenges and awkwardness of love at first sight. One minute you’ll laugh, the next you’ll reach for a tissue. Full of twists and turns, the unforeseen twist at the end wrenches your heart, leaving you breathless, and reminding us all just how precious life truly is. We all have but one life. The magic is found in living it.” – Cheryl Bradshaw, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Sloane Monroe mysteries
