Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan

Book description

New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling book. One of the Top 100 Romance Novels of All time on Goodreads! Archer’s Voice is a full-length, standalone romance.

I wanted to lose myself in the small town of Pelion, Maine. To forget everything I had left behind. The sound of rain. The blood. The coldness of a gun against my skin. For six months, each breath has been a reminder that I survived—and my dad didn’t. I’m almost safe again. But the moment I meet Archer Hale, my entire world tilts on its axis . . . and never rights itself again.

Until I trespass into his strange, silent, and isolated world, Archer communicates with no one. Yet in his whiskey-colored eyes, something intangible happens between us. There’s so much more to him than just his beauty, his presence, or the ways his hands communicate with me. On me. But this town is mired in secrets and betrayals, and Archer is the explosive center of it all.

So much passion. And so much hurt. But it’s only in Archer’s silence that we might just find what we need to heal . . . and live.

My review:

Everyone reads a book differently, but it took me awhile to finish this book that has thousands of rave five star reviews. The author must have an incredible reader base or launch team.

The premise of the narrative intrigued me, but at times I felt like Archer was too simple. In the real world, some individuals with disabilities are more complex and quite often very intelligent than those without disabilities.

From a personal perspective I have two family members with hearing loss and damage which makes them acutely aware of their surroundings. Both are quite intelligent.

I enjoyed the book, and glad the author made Archer’s character evolve into a self-assured man who happens to live with deafness. He needs love and Bree loves him. Love makes the world a better place.

I would have like more backstory on Bree. She appears in town after a devastating experience with her father.

The author ties up the loose ends nicely so I’m giving Archer’s Voice four stars.

Happy reading!
