When Bree Prescott arrives in the sleepy, lakeside town of Pelion, Maine, she hopes against hope that this is the place where she will finally find the peace she so desperately seeks. On her first day there, her life collides with Archer Hale, an isolated man who holds a secret agony of his own. A man no one else sees.
Archer’s Voice is the story of a woman chained to the memory of one horrifying night and the man whose love is the key to her freedom. It is the story of a silent man who lives with an excruciating wound and the woman who helps him find his voice. It is the story of suffering, fate, and the transformative power of love.
THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. The first three books in the series need not be read to enjoy this book. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
I don’t know where to start this review; I’m such a babbling mess. This book was that good. Mia Sheridan weaved the perfect story to hit all my good spots and, in the process, elicit more emotions than any work of fiction ever did before.
Just let start off by saying that it is so very rare for me to love both the heroine and hero in a romance book. More likely than not, the heroine really grates on my nerves. Either she is indecisive, selfish, self-absorbed, dimwitted, or a combination of the four. She is just so “awesome” that every man in the book falls instantly in love with her while I can’t find a genuine reason why. That wasn’t the case with Bree. She was generally sweet, decisive and didn’t play any games.
Archer…oh, sweet, innocent, yet extremely hot Archer. What can I say about you other than I absolutely loved you? For someone who had gone through what he’d gone through, lived how he lived, it was refreshing to see that he didn’t use that as an excuse to be an asshole like so many broken men in fiction.
The ages of the characters puts this book in the New Adult category, but both of them were so mature that it didn’t feel like a NA book. New Adult isn’t my favorite genre, but every now and then, I find a gem and Archer’s Voice was definitely a precious find.
I don’t know how to do this review without giving too much away. I just want to talk about this book until I go hoarse. Immediately after I read the last line, I wanted to start all over again, and I haven’t felt that way about a book in a very long time. In fact, I’ve already read it twice this past week and can read it again without getting tired of it. So glad I discovered Ms. Sheridan. Now I’m off to discover more books by her. Read Archer; you won’t regret it.
