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.
Two people learn to overcome their tragic pasts through a growing friendship and love. Let’s review!
This book was really not my cup of tea. It dealt with traumatic issues such as murder, rape, and abuse. I’ve noticed many New Adult contemporary romance novels deal with such issues, and I get tired of reading about it.
However, it wasn’t necessarily a bad read. I really enjoyed that one of the main characters had a disability (that sounds bad, doesn’t it?). Not that I enjoyed the disability itself, but that the book portrayed someone struggling to live with a disability. The romance was layered and enjoyable between the characters. My biggest disappointment was the antagonists were very one-dimensional. Their actions were never really explained well.
As an aside, this book contained several sections with explicit sexual content. If you’re not interested in reading in-depth sex scenes, you may want to skip it.
tl;dr If you’re willing to endure yet another New Adult novel based off trauma, then at least this book has a good slow burn romance built upon friendship.
