Mia Sheridan - Archer's Voice

*Contains adult themes
**Review by Susan & Stacey

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 SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY SAGITTARIUS. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.




Susan
When one of my good friends kept telling me to read Archer I had no idea what I was letting myself in for. Archer's Voice is an incredible story of pain, sadness, but also love, trust and above all communication.  

When he meets Bree the attraction is immediate and she is the first person he lets down his barriers for. When she arrives in his home town she doesn't know his past, and he doesn't know hers....just how they both wanted it. But friendships were built, and trust was built and she learns about him and all he's suffered. He lets her in despite all the pain of his past. 

Communication between the pair is what opens Archer up. She understands him....and they learn from one another. She gave him the chance to talk. When no one else had been willing to listen. I found it so incredibly touching that the pair used sign language to communicate but actually they read one another more intimately when nothing was said (or used at all!).

Bree builds herself a life in Archer's hometown and fits in well. But Archer feels like a burden to Bree after much meddling from members of Archer's "family" and decides to leave suddenly, leaving Bree heartbroken. I was at this point a complete mess.  
The heartache of Bree who had to believe Archer would return to her waited for him patiently...but was it too late? The pair struggle through some awful situations and on Archer's return we see a stronger man. A man who learned about himself and the confidence to go out there. To be the man he genuinely wanted to be for Bree rather than the burden he assumed himself to be.  

I can't say it often enough how much this book got under my skin...it's witty, adorable and so incredibly written. I'm so pleased I read it and urge anyone who hasn't to go buy it...I am officially a big Mia Sheridan fan.

I can't say much more than Susan has already regarding the story... But what I can say is how much I fell in love with Archer (new book boyfriend alert), through all his struggles he can't believe he has this wonderful girl now in Bree and he is so doubtful of himself which makes you love him even more (and just want to lick him! ;).  The story was beautifully written and just...oh, just incredibly beautiful. The sexual and emotional relationship between them so intense. I loved it from start to finish. And I cried and had a wafty hand thing going on at the end because I was sad it was over. The first book in a long time that has left me with a book hangover. (Go buy it!)
