Rocky Road Love

Joyce Marie Taylor

What does it take for a young man to wake up, wise up and savor the aroma of a promising future? More often than not, he must hit rock-bottom before emerging from the doom. After a near-perfect childhood and being blessed with stunning good looks, young Tony Romano has become quite spoiled. Enter the teen years, a sudden move to an elite neighborhood and hanging out with the wrong crowd, and suddenly life isn't so rosy anymore. Meanwhile, Doctor Phillip Romano has been preparing his prodigal son to become a heart surgeon since the day he was born. Will Tony follow in his father's footsteps without a fight? Perhaps, but first, he has more important things on his mind. After all, Tony is just a normal guy who likes normal things like women, surfing and motorcycles. At least, that's the way he sees it. As the action heats up, hold on to your seats and prepare for a wild ride, as young Anthony Romano takes you on a long and winding road to adulthood. Even with his best friend Vinny Scarzoni by his side to ease him over the bumps, the road ahead will be fraught with dangerous twists and turns when a childhood rival decides to seek revenge. Add a few devastating events into the mix, along with a troubled girlfriend and an infatuation with a beautiful young nurse, and Tony will have his hands full trying to keep his head above water. Will Tony ever grow up? Will he ever find the girl of his dreams? Read on to find out, because the path ahead will prove to be a rough and rocky road.
