Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

REVIEW - His Last Ride by Marcie Shumway

Cody - She was my childhood friend. The one person outside of my family that I could always count on.
Payton - He was my childhood friend. The one who always accepted me for me.


His Last Ride is a sweet, quick, easy flowing and catching story.

Its sweetness comes from the "innocence" of the main characters, especially his, and from how the theme of childhood friends romance is handled. He's an open, serious guy ready to work hard for what he wants. Made of book-boyfriend material, he will attract many admirers and not only for his look. He is a translation of the everlasting fascination for cowboys in the real world.

The plot is straightforward but pleasant to read. The climax is prepared from the first pages and therefore acceptable. Still, I've expected o more trustful reaction from her... or more arguments for it. 

Marcie's style allows no dead moments. Her words are of a friend who is happy to share with you this story that has happened, making you wish and hope to a happy ending.

425 Madison Ave is known as the perfect place to fall in love... this time is the place of falling in love again. 

His last ride is just their beginning.


Release Date: February 10th, 2020

She was my childhood friend. The one person outside of my family that I could always count on.
Fate drew us apart, but when my life was turned upside down, it brought us back together.
And, much like when we were kids, she made it right again.

Payton had a way of soothing more than just the wounds that were skin deep.
There’s one small problem, I’m not sure that I want to be just her friend anymore.

He was my childhood friend. The one who always accepted me for me.

For years, I didn’t realize my life was missing anything and, then Cody came back into it.
Just like when we were kids, he brought all the pieces back together. He made me feel things
I didn’t know I could feel. How can I be his friend when I want so much more?
I won’t be his buckle bunny.

Adjusting to very different lives, Cody and Payton need to decide if what is between them is worth fighting for. From small towns to the big city, they’re not the same people they once were.

Can a childhood friendship become so much more?
Only time will tell.
After all, 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love!
