Archer’s Voice (Sign of Love #3) by Mia Sheridan

Because of his goodness and service, Zeus made Chiron a part of the stars, the constellation, Sagittarius, where his beauty could be gazed upon for all time. Chiron’s wound symbolizes the transformative power of suffering-how personal pain, both physical and emotional, can become the source of great moral and spiritual strength.

As I walked back through my own yard to get my purse out of the house, I spotted a lone dandelion full of fluff. I bent and plucked it out of the ground and held it up to my lips, closing my eyes and recalling Anne’s words. After a minute, I whispered, ‘peace,’ before I blew and watched the fluff float out of sight, hoping that somehow one of those seeds carrying my whisper would reach that something or someone who had the power to make wishes come true.

Bree is running. She’s running from her horrible past and her friends, she’s looking for something she lost… she’s just not sure what it is.

He turned and started walking away. ‘Hey, wait!’ I called, starting to step after him. I stopped myself though, frowning as he moved away from me, his body moving with grace as he started to jog slowly toward the street. The strangest feeling of loss washed over me as he crossed and walked out of sight. I got in my car and sat there unmoving for a couple minutes, wondering at the odd encounter. When I finally started the engine, I noticed that there was something on my windshield. I went to turn on the spray, when I stopped and leaned forward, looking more closely. Dandelion seeds were scattered across the glass, and as a light breeze blew, the fluffy ends were caught in the moving air and danced delicately off my windshield as they took flight, moving away from me, in the direction the man had gone.

Archer is lost. He’s lost something that some have led him to believe is what makes a man a man. He has cut himself off from the world and doesn’t think he is missing anything… until Bree trespasses on his property one evening.

I gave this book 4.8 out of 5 stars. My favorite character in this book is Archer. I love how he reacts to situations (most of the time) and how naïve he is to the world (normally the girl is the naïve one). He kept stealing y heart with the things he would say (I swooned… a lot). Bree comes in second with her determination and worldliness (she is well put together for what she went through). I really liked how all the characters were well put together and though there were background characters even they were provided with a back story (for the most part). This book is technically part of the Sign of Love series, but it is a standalone (so read it! 😉 ) I have to say that I have read a couple books by Mia Sheridan and she has yet to let me down with her characters (or their storyline) and each one is unique in the way it makes you cry (yep, I’ve read this twice and shed a tear both times).

Leo (Sign of Love #1) by Mia Sheridan

Leo Cover

The Leo. A passionate lover by nature and a brave fighter by instinct.

When you have been waiting for someone to truly love you for what seems like forever, losing the one person who does hurts all the more… Evie’s a girl who grew up in foster care, her mother was an addict who didn’t care and her father’s not in the picture so when she’s placed in foster care at 10, she’s mastered the art of disappearing. Enter Leo, her loyal lion.

We met in the first foster care home we each were sent to. He’s my best friend in the world, the boy I’ve grown to love intensely, the boy who’s finally made it safe to dream. But he’s been adopted.

When Leo’s to be adopted at 15 he promises Evie he will write and call everyday he can…

“I’m going to kiss you now Evie, and when I do, it’s going to mean that you’re mine. I don’t care how far away from each other we are. You. Are. Mine. I’ll wait for you. And I want you to wait for me. Promise me you won’t let anyone else touch you. Promise me you’ll save yourself for me, and only me.”

Now its 8 years later and there’s still no word from Leo, Evie’s all but given up on him when someone new stalks into her life, literally.

I’ve heard that one of the reasons many serial killers are successful at luring victims is because they look like nice, good-looking, average guys. But I still can’t believe that the Adonis trailing me is someone to worry too much about, safety wise.

Jake has been following Evie around town for a while now and when she confronts him he reveals that he’s a friend of the man she has yet to forget, Leo. Now I could go into a bit more details but this is one of those books where I’m not sure how much is too much so you’ll have to read it for yourself 😉 .

I give this book a 4.7 out of 5 stars, it was engaging and I really fell in love with Evie’s character. The thing I liked best was the fact that the things that she went through definitely changed her as a person (good and bad), but she was able to grow from her experiences. She was able to take her circumstances and though there were times when she could have turned her back on humanity she pushed through. She made loyal friends and cared for those around her even though at times it would have been easier not to.
