Six trained agents have been assigned a
mission to find and eliminate a mole in their agency. Thiago,
Remy and Shawn are all Class One agents, quiet killers.
Brandt is the group’s explosives expert and a bit of a
pyromaniac. Nikolaus is the computer savvy agent and Carl
specializes in ammunitions. These six men are used to
working alone. They find it extremely difficult to find
common ground with one another or even begin to trust one
another. But when things are amiss, they must work together
to keep all alive and the one thing they can agree on is
that they’re all on the same side….or are they? When things
explode, you are being fired upon, and part of your party
had been kidnapped, it is hard to know whom to turn to.
The Archer is a plot
intensive story. The main goal is to weed out the agency’s
mole and eliminate him, but along the way there are many
twists and turns and it becomes tough to keep up at times.
It was an excellent plot and Abigail Roux obviously put a
lot of thought into it. For me, the conflict built up longer
than I expected it to and then I found it to have been
wrapped up very quickly at the end. The end is left open so
there is no definite “…and they lived happily ever after”.
It could be considered a “happy for now” story but in my
opinion you are left to wonder if all the male couples you
wanted to end up together, do. There was only one M/M
encounter that leaned towards an emotional encounter. Most
of the M/M sex scenes are time killing or frustration
release acts. If you like a suspenseful storyline that has
men who are very rough around the edges and treat the ones
they are with as such, then you will like The Archer.
If you are more inclined to a M/M story with love and a
sweet ending this story probably will not be a fulfilling
read for you.
