How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

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.

Heartbreakingly Beautiful Love Story

My heart. MY HEART. I can barely contain how freaking full my heart feels right now. I had heard so much about this book and how amazing it was, but it never quite seemed to be the right time to move it off my TBR. Finally, I decided to stop waiting and jump right in. I have never been more glad that I did. Archer's Voice was so heartbreakingly and tragically beautiful. It will go down as one of my absolute favorite reads ever.

This was such an emotionally complex story. It was so achingly sweet and gentle at times and then incredibly gut wrenching and painful the next. There was so much raw honesty and sincerity in the words that they took my breath away. I both read and listened to this book, completely immersing myself in the story. Overall, I enjoyed the narration by Kris Koscheski and Emily Durante. It sounded slightly muffled at times, but both delivered emotional performances.

Bree and Archer consumed my thoughts and though I never wanted it to end, I couldn't stop myself from reading/listening to it any moment that I could. It was written so perfectly, causing my heart to soar at just the right time, but also to cry in anguish too. I felt every emotion while reading this book and Archer definitely goes into my book boyfriend hall of fame. His journey through this book was so compelling that I was hanging on every word. There were so many issues, some things seemingly so insignificant, that caused such heartache. There were also hard truths about society and the pain that others can callously inflict. Above all though, it showed the healing power of love and forgiveness.

There's not much that I can add about this story that hasn't been said before, but truly this was an amazing book. Don't hesitate to read/listen to it! This may be my first Mia Sheridan book, but it surely won't be my last!

This book should be a movie

I absolutely loved this book. I hated for it to end.
I listened from start to finish in one day.
The characters really suck you in.
I couldn't wait to hear what they would do next.
I got this book on sale but it's worth a credit.
I mostly listen to exotic romance and didn't think this book would have any steam.... boy I was wrong.
Both narrator's did a fantastic job to bring the characters to life.
This book had so many emotional layers to it.
One minute it's sad, then funny, then it's, no he didn't just turn into an ass to, ohhh my goodness that's hot.. and Ohh how sweet!
you really want a HEA ending.
And if you wondering.. did they got their HEA ending?
you'll have to listen to find out.

Great Story - Too Much Sex

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend this audiobook, but I would warn that the sex was way too overdone throughout the book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Archer's Voice?

I loved the connection that the two main characters had the moment they saw each other. I loved the way that the mute character blossomed with the help of Bree. Too many times, people are ignored, as this man had been, before someone takes the time to see what's past the facade.

Which character – as performed by Kris Koscheski and Emily Durante – was your favorite?

I liked both performances and both characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, again because of the elaborate sex scenes. I didn't know this was going to be such a vivid sexual novel or I would not have downloaded it. I read the reviews, which were really good, but will not listen to any more novels by this author.

Just OK For Me

I am in really the minority here as most people loved this book. For me the story is okay, but the writing is very flat and I don't think I'll be recommending the book to anyone.

The characters are one-dimensional and cliched, such as the plot moppet of a dog, the kind widow next door, and the horrible, mean, "wicked witch" style woman who owns the town; the setting is a banal Mayberry-ish small town with overly friendly strangers who tell the new girl in town everything she needs to know exactly when she needs to know it. So much of the conflict is not deeply explored and then resolved too quickly and easily.

In general, there's quite a bit of "telling" in this story where it could be so much stronger by "showing" instead - many reactions and thoughts are weakened with phrasing like "for some reason" or "intuition" or "something didn't feel right" rather than providing the little clues that add up to *why* things don't seem right. I found myself thinking every five minutes "oh please...really?". Everything was easy, a man who didn't interact for ten years with a soul, found a girl and in five minutes everything was fabulous, the drama was always resolved in no time and everything was too mushy. But maybe it was simply not my cup of tea!

Male voice was ok, female voice not good.

Beautiful Story 💝

I got this one during a recent sale and after listening I have to admit that the great reviews were absolutely correct. This book hits you emotionally especially if you've ever been teased, bullied, or just felt inadequate in some way. This is a story that builds layers of emotions.......it tugs at your heartstrings.....makes you smile.....and leaves you fulfilled. I enjoyed the journey of love with Archer & Bree and didn't want it to end.

Note: FYI- There are descriptive sex scenes and some swearing. For those who only like "clean reads" you might want to give this one a try. Just forward thru those scenes and the story would be just as good.

I highly recommend this book and I am putting on my repeat list.

Heartbreakingly Sweet

If you could sum up Archer's Voice in three words, what would they be?

Heartbreaking, Surviving, and Triumphant

What other book might you compare Archer's Voice to and why?

The Law of Moses. Moses feels broken for a good portion of that book, like Archer. There are a few other similarities, but I don't want to spoil anything from either of the books. Don't read Law of Moses if you value dry tear-ducts though. Seriously, it's a cry fest.

What about Kris Koscheski and Emily Durante ’s performance did you like?

Kris Koscheski did a great job with young Archer. Sometimes authors make kids seem whiny, but that wasn't the case in this book. He was also able to convey the vulnerability of Archer through his voice, which made an impact on how deeply I felt Archer's pain and frustration with himself.

Emily Durante is talented at keeping her voice smooth and steady, which helped the story move at a pleasurable pace since the majority of the book is narrated by her.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES.

Any additional comments?

I loved this book so much that I immediately started looking for similar books after I was done. As a side note, I didn't know that "Beta Male" books were a thing until this book. It was refreshing to not read/listen to a book about an overbearing alpha male.

WOW!! SO GOOD!!

Narration by both Kris Koscheski and Emily Durante was wonderful. Emily did many voices so well with sweet emotion.
This kept my interest the entire time and was an easy listen which sometimes is just what you need.
The story was so sweet and emotional between Archer and Brie.
Mia Sheridan really can write an extremely heated detailed moving (anymore descriptions would be X rated) sex scenes. Every one of them just kept getting better and better.
WOW!!!
You don't want to break up the last hour or so of this book. There is a lot that comes together and mainly the emotion and one of the best heated scenes is captured then.
Mia Sheridan does pull a little punch at the end that I think was unnecessary but it didn't ruin anything. Just an opinion.
Worth the price or credit. Definitely!!!

Beautiful

This is a re-read of the book. This is an absolutely wonderful story of acceptance and an unbreakable, instantaneous connection between two lost souls. Beautiful souls connected by their own tragedies and hope. Their story is not easy or painless, but they are strong and filled with goodness.
Archer's Voice is a story to fall in love with over and over.

GREAT book

This book was awesome. I rarely have time to sit down and read a book so listening to it was much easier. Both narrators were easy to understand. There's a section that was full of lust and sex which seemed a little bit overboard, but overall it was an excellent book. Most of all I enjoyed how the book ended.

Good

This is a romance which is slightly different and gently written. The narration was very good. It's the first time that I've tried the combination of listening and reading, but it works.

Light Chic Lit - Definitely Not Erotica

What did you like best about Archer's Voice? What did you like least?

Didn't connect with the voice of Archer as performed by either of the narrators. Voice was too light and effeminate; combined with the character created by Sheridan, I couldn't get past Archer being a bit poonsey.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Enjoyed the 'love finds a way' through adversity theme but was challenged somewhat by the weak/soft profile of the male lead.

Would you be willing to try another one of Kris Koscheski and Emily Durante ’s performances?

Whilst I wasn't over the moon about their performance in this book, I'm open to listening to them narrate other characters.

Any additional comments?

Influenced by strong listener reviews, I set a high benchmark and was a little disappointed when the story didn't live up to expectations. It was a "nice" light read for a chic lit title but I definitely wouldn't categorise it as erotic fiction.

Enjoyable story

Would you listen to Archer's Voice again? Why?

Not sure the story line was 95% but the last few chapters seemed rushed???

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Story line and concept

What does Kris Koscheski and Emily Durante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Good performance

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Little crying involved along with anger to the township.

Any additional comments?
