I wasn’t sure she could do it. Don’t get me wrong, I love me a good redemption story, but after doing a re-read of Archer’s Voice recently, Travis still left a bad taste in my mouth that I wasn’t sure was removable. But...I digress, because this is Mia (my favorite author) we’re talking about, and she ALWAYS fixes what you think is unfixable. Travis is an entitled and arrogant, manipulative ass who’s road to selflessness could only be paved and enlightened by the beautifully broken and optimistic Haven from California. She is his opposite in so many ways and his parallel in so many others, that their love story and individual healing was, to put it basically...serendipitous. I so loved revisiting this picturesque small town of Pelion, Maine and all it’s quirky characters and CANNOT wait for more stories in this spin-off series. Like seriously Mia, give me Gage and Easton’s stories ASAP please and thank you! ;-)

If you loved Archer’s Voice (view on Amazon↗️), Travis is a MUST READ! If you didn’t love Archer’s Voice, what the heck is wrong with you, hahaha! And if for some strange reason you haven’t read Archer’s Voice yet, go now…like seriously, read it now (linked below), then pick up Travis to read right after! Both are 5+ star reads that you need in your life, I promise. <3

Our Favorite Quotes

She made me want to become the man she deserved. She made me braver, and stronger. Because of her, I wanted to be the best version of myself. And that, I think, is what love does, if it's really love.

All the things that have brought us pain, carve a distinct hole in our heart, and there's someone else out there with the perfect something that will fill that void. And in turn, we get to do the same for them. And suddenly, it all makes sense. It all fits. Because we haven't been forsaken. We've been prepared.

The way he was looking at me, made me believe he'd move heaven and earth to make all my dreams come true.

I had lost it all. Willingly. Joyfully. While following my heart. And because I'd lost it all, I'd gained...everything.

From The Publisher


Travis Hale has it all. An important role as the chief of police in the idyllic town of Pelion, Maine. Looks that regularly and consistently make women fall at his feet. Two nephews and a niece he adores, and a family who’s mostly forgiven him after a series of unfortunate decisions years before. Perhaps his past is riddled with regrets and misguided choices, but his future looks bright and limitless.

Until the new guy in town crosses him in a way both shocking and indefensible.

A guy who, as it turns out, has a sister who may be equally as disastrous to Travis’s well-ordered plans, though in an altogether different manner. Not that there’s any real risk of him falling for the smoothie-making, birdseed-eating wild woman. She’s not even his type. A plant lady from California with a head of unruly curls and an equally messy past. More than that, she’s only in town for the summer, busy mooning over perfect-in-every-way Gage Buchanan.

And if Travis knows anything, it’s that he refuses to be second best. Ever again.

Haven Torres’s life fell apart. Or more to the point, it burned to the ground. At the time, it seemed like a solid idea to jump in her car, her brother a mostly-willing co-pilot, and embark on a cross-country adventure.

When they land jobs at an exclusive tennis and golf club in a picturesque lake town in Maine, Haven’s hopeful it might prove a summer to remember. Especially if she can catch the attention of the most eligible bachelor in town and her current crush. Even the kindest, most upstanding, perfect of men aren’t opposed to summer flings, right?

But when she meets the local police chief—all swagger and arrogance—and learns of her brother’s scandalous misdeed, she knows that Pelion is just another town where their stay is best . . . short-lived. Still, she and Travis strike up an unlikely friendship and Haven sees that the gorgeous lawman isn’t only easy on the eyes, but he has . . . layers. Not that she’s going to peel any of them. He’s only her friend. A friend willing to scratch her back, if she scratches his.

It seems simple enough. She’ll help him make her brother sweat a little. And he’ll help her win over Gage. But before either Travis or Haven knows it, simple turns complicated, friendship gets flipped on its ear, passion faces down perfection, and they both discover that sometimes you have to lose it all to find exactly what you need.
