Rating: 5 Stars!
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.
5+ Huge, Silent, Shattering Stars!
Perfection, In Written Form! One of the Best Books I’ve Read This Year!!
”I didn’t know enough to dream you, Bree, but somehow you came true anyhow.” - Archer
From the first page to the absolute last, I was hooked, reading straight through to the end and loving every hour, every minute, every second of this emotional, touching book. The story, the characters, the way its written, were all-consuming as I absorbed each page and eagerly turned to the next.
Bree Prescott is on the run. She’s leaving a painful, tragic past in the dust as she takes off for parts unknown. When she lands in Pelion, Maine, she’s hoping this charming lakeside reprieve will prove to be the balm that calms her aching heart and soothe the fear that’s raging inside. As she navigates her way around town, she quickly makes friends and gets a job.
And she also runs into the town recluse.
The pull is instant. She recognizes a familiar pain in him even she wasn’t aware of but it called to her and she was helpless to deny it.
Archer Hale is a silent entity no one knows. He’s a ghost in his own town and he prefers to stay that way. Hiding from a painful and tragic past of his own, he’s reluctant to trust or make friends with anyone, let alone the beautiful newcomer who seems bent on being his friend.
“Everyone needs friends.” - Bree
Both of these character have secrets and hurts they are trying to recover from.
Bree was a beautiful heroine. She was open minded. Her heart was pure and she found wonder in the simple things in life. She was sweet and kind and brave. She was good! Her vulnerability was endearing instead of frustrating and I loved how she saw the world and its possibilities and the possibility in others.
Archer Hale is forever a hero in my book! I'm used to a certain kind of hero... the alpha male. And though he might not have been dominating and brimming with self awareness, he was one of the absolute best characters I’ve ever read! He is a complicated, layered, unique character who’s really been on his own since age seven. He had no guide, no teacher of life. Living in seclusion with his intelligent but unbalanced uncle left him with book smarts but unprepared for life outside of his fenced in property. He’s been completely sheltered from the world and society and with his silent innocence, his vulnerability and his shy manner, he breaks into your heart and steals a piece of it with each passing page.
You brought the silence,
The most beautiful sound I'd ever heard.
Because it was where you were...
It seems everything is stacked against Bree and Archer. With certain people opposed to their union and Archers insecurities and his seclusion from the world holding him back and with Bree’s heart on the line, the risks seem high for this couple to make it. Danger lurks behind every corner, whether it be emotional or physical.
I can honestly say, I loved the “not knowing”. I didn’t know if this couple was going to actually make it or not. It seemed everything was working to pull them apart. Watching them connect, become so entwined in each other they practically spoke their own language, was beautiful. With each passing hand gesture, their love grew but Archers asks the perfect question.
Is it enough, Bree?
Is love enough when the cards are stacked in favor of failure? Well, you’ll just have to read this story and see for yourself if it was enough for them.
The Wrap Up:
I’ve never seen a story quite like this one. And I enjoyed Every. Amazing. Moment! Besides the unquestionably unique story and the amazing characters, this book was well written with hauntingly beautiful prose and descriptive scenes. It truly is worth your time. Read it!
