I received a free audible copy of books 1-4 of this romance serial in exchange for my honest review.

This is my first A.C. James book and I very much enjoyed it. It was also the first book I've ever read that involved pucas (or a horse shifter of any sort). I really enjoyed all of the particularities surrounding pucas and puca mating. I particularly enjoyed that the mate must be able to ride the stallion to be eligible as a mate (a.k.a. able to bear puca offspring). That added caveat of determini

I was going write review for each book , but I guess I too pissed cuz of stages I had to through to complete this series , kinda of turn me off towards writing a full review of 8 short stories…. But if you are looking for:

This series offers up Action, intrigue, a kidnapping, a forever love, some bloodshed, a heroic rescuing of damsels in distress, romance & more. What it doesn’t offer is whole book… 1-4 could’ve been Published as one full novel, but no the author decide to give us few pages

Getting to the truth
Niall and Felicity are starting to work together and her to start to trust him again. The attraction between the two is explosive. There is more going on then what meets the eye. Lots of stuff happening and discoveries are found out. And a kidnapping happens as well. Well written and very entertaining to read. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Ride is a BBW Paranormal series by A.C. James. This author does the series a little different than what I am used to. There are 12 of what they call episodes (novellas) and each set of 4 episodes is a season (separate story) that combines into the 1 series. I would suggest getting them in either one large bundle of 12 or by seasons because each episode ends in a cliffhanger. Now, with that info.out of the way here are my thoughts on the first season. The series is about Puca (horse) shapeshifter ...more

It's like watching a novella a one hour show that you have to keep up with. What's going to happen to Felicity next time and is Niall going to rescue in time. Tune in next section to find out. I think it's just starting to get good.

Too short

The story is too short. But I liked the cliff hanger ending. What will happen, will they be saved before it is too late.

2.5 stars...Well this is unfortunate, as everything was going so good. In this installment Felicity is trying to come to terms with Niall being a Puca and her mate, and we are given the reveal of who is really causing the incidents on the island and why. All of this is great for the plot, but unfortunately not executed well on the part of Felicity. This is painful to say as, up until this episode, I was incredibly pleased with not only the storyline, but the exceptional writing. Things immediate ...more

He was a horse. A seriously hot horse!

Are you sure you want to see my stallion? I am surprised he did not just say “Hey Pretty Lady, wanna see my stallion?” Definitely a unique pick-up line and it brings a whole new meaning to the expression ‘horsing around.' AC JAMES!?!? WTF ARE YOU DOING TO ME?!?! This third part is so…WOW! So AWESOME! So FANGASMIC!!! SO…BEYOND WORDS! Well, I could say but I do NOT want to ruin any little piece of it for you!!!!

Felicity does a blog on the supernatural. Though before she started investigating the Puca she wasn’t certain how much she truly believed in the supernatural. Boy was she wrong.

Things are starting to really heat up between Niall and Felicity. He has revealed his secret to Felicity that he is a Puca. Wow talking about giving new meaning to horsing around…lol Question is will Felicity except him for what he is and keep

Felicity, her memories of Niall previously erased, again knows the truth about him – that he is a Puca horse shifter. Because he asks for her help in finding the reason for the veil to have opened prematurely, her insecurities again made her think that was why he chose her as a mate and not that he truly wanted her. But Niall does need to solve this mystery before a human inadvertently crosses the veil and is trapped in his realm forever. Time is running out.

I was given this book in exchange for a honest review.

I have reviewed the other two books, and this being the third of four, I still feel this could have been done as one large novel, though I see the reason why she did them all as Novellas now that I am 75% done with the series. This series is quite good, and the drama that is added in this book just adds to the need to read more. The first book explains what is going on, the second book gets more in detail about the characters, and the third

This novella is part 3 of a series and must be read in order. In this part we see the h, Felicity, deciding if she could trust the H, Niall, again after he lied, by omission, and she got angry and hurt. Niall showed her his stallion and she finally knew what he was saying was true, but could she trust him with her heart. Was she ready for another relationship after her last ended disastrously? Niall still needs to find out what caused the veil to open early, but he needs for her not to write her ...more

This is a cleverly written collection of paranormal stories, volumes 1 thru 4 of the Ride Series. These stories are about the life and love of the of the Puca Mates (shape shifters). Felicity Forrest and Niall O'Leary are the main characters in these stories and while neither one of them is looking for love, they end up finding it. These four stories introduce us to the characters, tell us how they met and why. Then we learn more about them. There is even a very suspenseful part (I won't say wha ...more

I was given a complimentary copy by author A.C. James in exchange for an honest review.

I quickly found myself enthralled by this story again, I soon found myself at the end of this episode... what a cliffhanger!! Although there was little Felicity & Cynthia time, I found I was more worried about weather or not Felicity would accept Niall & his Puca heritage. A couple of turns occur that kept me wondering, but that cliffhanger, WOW I'm not sure I can wait till the next release to find out

Review for RIDE PT. 3

Felicity is now aware of the fact Niall is a Puca…her memory has been restored. She is torn because she finds him so attractive and alluring, but she doesn’t believe he can really be attracted to her. As they spend more time together, Niall reveals his feelings are real and that he would like her to come back with him to his clan because he wants her for his mate. That really puts her in a tailspin. As they delve further into the mystery of the veil, they both start to reali
