Book Review: Archer's Voice by Mia Sheridan

Archer's Voice 
~1st Person POV

Another 5 star read! Archer's voice is my favorite book in the series. It's already the fourth book in the Signs of love series. It being the book for Sagittarius. I love love love this book! I want more from Mia Sheridan and I want it now please! The author blew me away.

Synopsis from Amazon:
"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."

I was bawling by the time I finished the book. This book deserved more than the 5 stars I could give it. It was a beautiful story everyone should read. I cried several times.I even wished I was Bree at some parts(That's how much I loved the story). I can feel Archer. I feel sad and proud a lot of times. I can't really explain how much this book gave me the "feels". I have respect for both Bree and Archer. I cannot believe Mia Sheridan topped her previous books with this one. I want to read more from Archer and Bree's Story. I want to read about their future. I want to see what will happen next, so if the author sees this, could you please make another book about them?! 

Adam Nicklas as My Archer Hale ♥

Archer is a misunderstood and misjudged handsome "hermit" who happened to have one of the worst pasts. He first had this scruffy beard and long hair. At first I wasn't very good in picturing him. I've never really liked long hair and facial hair on guys, but as the story progresses, you will see things will be better for me *winks*. He was just a child in some ways. Even so, he was attractive. Archer is now one of my favorite heroes! 

Bree on the other hand is a beautiful compassionate woman who ran away. She was kind and found her home in Pelion in just a short amount of time. I thought her friendly personality was admirable. I could say everyone could use a little Bree in their home towns. She wasn't an overbearing insecure woman who constantly need reassurance from her man. She was strong, and she did not just give up. 

Oh I never thought I'd like how Archer was mute. He couldn't speak, but he was super intelligent. He even taught himself how to use sign language. As you read the story, you will see just how smart Archer is that you couldn't help but respect how he is. I didn't pity him. I respected him because of everything he did and how he handled it. If I can I even want my own Archer Hale.

The story was definitely different. I applaud Mia Sheridan for making unique stories every time.

Definitely ☆☆☆☆☆ ~ 5 Stars!

Book Review: Tangled by Emma Chase

~1st Person POV

Drew Evans is an edible sexy book boyfriend everyone should get to know. I absolutely loved this book! There were a lot of good-natured banters, some not that made me want to read more. I love reading from the hero's point of view. I have to admit how I absolutely liked how it was written. I believed in the thoughts and actions of the characters and they were true for some of my friends which made me believe in it so much more. 

What is it about?

Synopsis from Amazon:
"Drew Evans is handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed? He’ll tell you he has the flu. But we all know that’s not really true.

Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin. The professional competition she brings is unnerving, his attraction to her is distracting, his failure to entice her into his bed is exasperating.

Tangled is not your mother’s romance novel. It is an outrageous, passionate, witty narrative about a man who knows a lot about women…just not as much as he thinks. As he tells his story, Drew learns the one thing he never wanted in life, is the only thing he can’t live without."

When I read this blurb, I just couldn't help but get the book. Aside from the interesting synopsis. I have to admit that the cover was very attractive. Oh by the way..

Look at what we have here...

Uhm, so now do you see how tempting it is to read the book? I like how guys are clean shaved, but one look at this and it changes my perception a bit. Actually it may just be him. There are always exceptions to the rule. *winks*

Oh I just loved Drew and his playfulness. He was scrumptiously wonderful. How he got the "flu" was also cute. He was a strong arrogant man who was acting sick but we know he's just emotionally sick. If you know what I mean. He had something in him that makes me go "aww" and I love it. I love it when I find these cute little things characters do. Kind of like when Matt from Night Owl has his compassion for animals. Drew messed up with Katherine, but when he tried to get her back, I don't know if he made me swoon or laugh at his tactics. Either way, Drew had me.

I also like Katherine for being such an awesome heroine. She was strong willed and she had this inner strength that had me rooting for her till the end.

I enjoyed following the story line and how the characters reacted to each event. You can expect a lot of fights between the Katherine and Drew, but they were mostly funny. I'd love to read this again if I had a nice angst filled book making me have another book hangover.

There's already a short story accompanying the book called Holy Frigging Matrimony which out for only .99 cents! Also you can now pre order the next book called Twisted 

The blurb was right. it's outrageous, passionate and definitely witty. I can't wait for book two. Two thumbs up to Emma Chase. I can't wait to read more books from this author.

Book Review: Until November by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Until November (Until Series Book 1)
~1st Person POV

A nice sweet book which will keep you happy for a couple of hours. It has its troubled times, but nothing too "angsty". It's a nice book to read after more dramatic novels. It's a good read, but it's not very striking to one's mind. I liked the characters, but I didn't feel the "this is it!" factor.

Synopsis from Goodreads:
"November is looking forward to getting to know her father and the safety of a small town. After leaving the Big Apple and her bad memories for Tennessee, November starts working for her dad at his strip club doing the books. The one time she’s allowed there during club hours she runs into Asher Mayson. He’s perfect until he opens his mouth and makes assumptions. November wants nothing to do with Asher but too bad for November, fate has other plans. 

Asher Mayson has never had a problem getting a woman, that is until November. Now all he can think about is making November his and keeping her safe. "

Before I read this book, I was a bit intrigued at how Asher was working for the strip club. I seriously thought it would be like Magic Mike *lol* but no! Asher isn't a stripper, he only checks up on the security at the club. I liked November's father. He seems like a very nice man, but he and his brother owns a strip club. If I met him in real life, I bet I wouldn't even have any idea he's interested in owning a strip club. I liked how the town felt real to me. People were nice, but rumor easily goes around. I just felt like the setting was nice and Asher's house was a nice touch. 

Asher, the handsome and sexy business owner who built his own house was wonderful. He's a good guy with a bad boy image. I liked it. I thought he was a little too alpha possessive. I would have gone nuts if he was a real person. After I read the whole book though, I was interested in Asher more. I was a little too annoyed though at how Asher kept using "baby" in every line in the middle of the story. The word was over used and I kept telling myself he didn't use it in the sentence before. 

November is a really nice heroine, she's brave and kind. As much as I like her, I couldn't put her on my favorite heroines list. I remember Asher's personality and behavior more than November. Is it just me or is she a bit forgettable? 

Overall, there were a few scenes where I wish it was shorter, and some which I wanted longer. The final battle or problem they had to face seemed really nice for me, but it ended a little too tamely and quickly. I would have loved to see Asher act on it too. 

I've read this book days ago, but I wasn't able to write about it, until now. It's amazing how I still remember it well and it wasn't buried in the past after I've read several books recently. It's a good book to recommend. There are parts which showed how sweet Asher was, and I want to share those, but I want to keep this as spoiler free as possible as well. To say things simply, it was sugary sweet.

I can't wait to read the following books which will be about Asher's brothers, and boy are they good lookin!

★★★★½ ~~~ 4.5 Stars!
