In his raw, hilarious, and dark debut novel, Brian Price showcases our world, on the verge of the COVID-19 pandemic, through the eyes of a sarcastic and stubborn narrator as he attempts to drown his family’s demons in Southern California.

Once Upon a Subway is a modern romance novel about two ex-lovers running into each other on a subway commute two years after their passionate, but turbulent relationship ended. On the train, Wyatt and Harper pick up right where they left off, the flirty tension and chemistry of first love consuming them both. The only problem? Harper’s recent engagement to the man she left Wyatt for, news that hasn’t reach Wyatt yet. As Harper struggles to hide her ring finger from Wyatt, the two wonder if this chance encounter is a second shot at love or a final goodbye.

Wyatt Lewis returns in this prequel to Last Chance California on September 5, 2022.
