My name is Shayna Renee and reading is my passion. I can’t wait to escape reality and dive in to a passion filled love story! I own a Nook, Kindle, iPad, and way too many paperback books to count. I never find myself without a way to read a chapter here and there. My favorite type of book is one that can pull every type of emotion out of me. The uglier the cry I get from reading, the better! It all started when a friend of mine urged me to read a little book called Fifty Shades of Grey. Have you all heard of it? Yeah, I thought so. I found myself wanting to see what else was out there, what was so fascinating about this particular genre. On my journey, I discovered authors like J.R. Ward, Shayla Black, Sylvia Day, and Sylvain Reynard and I was just hooked! After reading these fabulous books for a while, I discovered I really had no one close by to share my thoughts with. That’s when I decided to start a blog; a review blog that could help me get my thoughts out there and in turn get other people’s recommendations and opinions. I absolutely LOVE the authors and romance readers I have met through this journey, and I only hope to continue sharing my adoration of books with you!

Archer's Voice (A Sign of Love)

Archer's Voice (A Sign of Love) - Mia Sheridan A LOVE STORY you will NEVER forget!

Archer’s Voice left me speechless! This book was in one word….PERFECTION! I can’t get over how much this story has touched my heart and soul! I have the Book Hangover to end all Book Hangovers! I have read some romance books that had me in a whirlwind of emotions; but I don’t think I have ever been so touched by a love story this deep, this real, and this profound that even after a week has gone by, I’m still thinking about it. I know reviewers don’t like to say this, but Archer’s Voice is one of the greatest love stories that I have ever read. I’ve heard stories of books that have changed a person’s life, changed the way a person see’s their life, but I’ve never experienced it myself…until now.

❝You can’t hear me… I can’t help that… But I want you to see me❞

Do you believe in fate, like two people who were meant to be together? If you read Archer’s Voice, you will have no choice, but to believe. Both of these characters, Bree and Archer, they are dealing with pains from their pasts that are so beyond anything that I can imagine. For an author who can transport your mind directly to a scene, where you feel helplessness, intense heartache, and profound sadness, it’s an incredible feat. I don’t know how the written word can be so damn intoxicating that you forget what is going on around you. It’s just magical.

Bree Prescott has run away from home, fleeing from the only thing she knows because of an event that pained her with such sadness. Hoping to get away from the memories and the horrible flashbacks, she finds herself in a small town where no one knows her and hopefully she can finally move past her grief and start to heal. Even though she is in a new place, with new people, she feels drawn to a man she bumps into on the sidewalk. Enter Archer Hale. The awkward meeting between the two did not deter Bree from seeking Archer out, learning more about him. There was just something about his eyes that made her worries go away, even if for a little while. She has to know more about this silent mystery man.

Archer Hale, oh jesus, where the hell do I start. He has been on his own ever since he was a child. The flashbacks we get of his childhood will rock you to your core. It’s horrible, unfathomable, and just plain sad. The people in town have their opinions of what happened to him, but they never really took the time to get to know him, and Archer was okay with that. He has learned at a young age, that he needs to take care of himself, and not worry about what people say or think of him. When he first bumps in to Bree he is fascinated by the embarrassment that she exudes. He is intrigued by the woman who doesn’t look at him with pity, but of pure friendliness.

❝It was as if my body was his instrument and he learned to play it so perfectly that the melody vibrated within my very soul.❞

This couple has everything going against them, and yet, they work so very hard at overcoming the obstacles that are put in their way. Archer has never really wanted anything more out of life until Bree came along. Bree never thought she could get past her demons until Archer came along. The chemistry, the bond that these two characters share, it makes you believe that true love, true adoration can get you through the toughest barriers.

Bree and Archer both had fears. Their past gave them no choice in that matter. Some people live with fears like that and it eats away at their soul. Through the love they shared, they were able to embrace their fears and triumph over their doubts. Although, it took some extreme measures, and setbacks, they made it through the storm and finally became whole.

❝I think love is a concept, and each person has an individual word for what sums it up for them. My word for love is Bree.❞

Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan was impeccably written, superb in every way. It will burrow in to your heart and never leave. It will touch your souls in ways you can’t even imagine. It will break your heart and slowly and carefully put it back together. For those of you who are used to the typical alpha male, who demands your heart and dominates your soul, be prepared for a whole new breed of hero. Archer Hale is an unsung hero. He will not demand your heart or your soul. He will simply ask for it, and will ask that you only take his in return and never let it go. To sum it up, Mia Sheridan is pure genius, and she deserves everything good in the world, because she gave us Archer Hale.
