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.

So I live in this little bubble and didn’t even know this book existed until I heard J. Sterling raving about it at Penned Con. I had to have it! Took me a few months to get to it but oh man it was so worth it! Archer’s Voice is hands down one of the best contemporary romances I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I always find that some of the contemporary books have completely unrealistic situations…the kind where I just roll my eyes and think “yeah frickin right.” This beyond exceeded my expectations. I even avoided looking at other reviews so I wouldn’t know what I was getting into. This is one of those books that left me with a renewed outlook on life. I’ve never been one to really judge someone but have never gone out of my way to befriend someone that needed it. It was so incredibly moving and I’m even crying a bit writing this because it was so beautiful.

Bree leaves her home in Ohio and shows up to a small town called Pelion. She begins this friendship with the towns loner, Archer. They both have baggage and heartbreaking pasts that makes them the perfect pair. Just watching their relationship unfold was poetry…absolutely perfect. As to be expected, Archer struggled with many things he wasn’t accustomed to. It was real and raw. I was planning on savoring the last few chapters but Mia had other plans! I couldn’t leave without finding out what happens. I was so close to sending the author another note and screaming at her! But all was set right and I’m left with a huge hangover.
