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 was a reread for a bookclub read.
When I read Archer’s Voice for the first time many years ago, I was absolutely smitten with it.
This reread was good but as I knew what to expectit lost some of its luster. That’s why I don’t do reread LOL.
Now, for the first timers, what can you expect from that story?
Swoon! Lots and lots of swoon for Archer.
I think there is nothing better than a vulnerable man, so sheltered that his soul feels like a kid’s in a very male hot body!
When a very good looking male is very eager to discover your body and please you when he has never had any sexual relationship before, your ovaries just explode! Bam! Pregnant.
Archer has a way to make you fall for him. Like someone said in the book: you want to cuddle him and then lick him.
This is a love story.
The story of Bree, fleeing her town in the hope to escape her traumatizing past and meeting the shy town recluse, Archer.
When they meet that first day, Bree will feel an instant pull towards that silent and unkempt man.
She will offer him her friendship, connecting with Archer thanks to sign language that her deaf late father spoke.
It was heartwarming to see them make a connection and see it blossom into something more.
The love story was sweet, hot and beautiful.
Of course you also have a villain wanting to rule the town and a morally grey character with Travis, manipulating Archer in doing what he doesn’t want.
I am very curious to read his book and see how Mia will write his redemption arc because he sure was not pleasant in this story! He is alluring yes but his mom inspired him to be a master manipulator, a trait I despise! So yes, it will be very interesting to see how finally seeing his mom for who she was has changed him.
Thanks for reading.
