From author Lucy Anderson, You, Me & Archie is a sizzling romantic fiction that gives an intriguing reference to Archie Andrews—that lovable, accident-prone, redheaded, small-town teenager in the “Archie” comic books. With its three fascinating characters, Anderson’s book gives a fresh and flavorful twist to the classic case of love triangle that drives the plot of most romance novels.

Betty is an introvert. She has a very imaginative and unfathomable mind. Her mother named her after Betty—a pure and true of heart and hopelessly in love character from the “Archie.” Kevin is athletic and loves going to the cinema. Betty and Kevin frequently exchange letters up until the final year of high school has finally come with its many exciting opportunities and developments. Countless fights, friendship and family dilemmas had occurred and each tarnished the innocent complexion of youth, but Betty and Kevin’s friendship still blossomed. Everything was perfect—until Betty met Kevin’s former friend.

Dane is handsome, dark-haired, with the same athletic build as Kevin yet somewhat more delicate. His smile was warming too but not as toothy as Kevin’s. His voice was deep and husky, much deeper than Kevin’s. Betty imagined it might sound something like her father’s—strong and commanding. While Betty is with Kevin, she starts spending long hours of study time with Dane. Eventually, with Dane’s disarming traits, Betty falls in love with him. She has clearly gotten her feelings mixed up and has wondered whether Dane is “the Archie” in her life that her mother had told her about and whom she has been waiting for all these years.

With its intimate scenes, piercing dialogues and heart-wrenching dilemmas, You, Me & Archie is a romantic story that takes you on a thrilling rollercoaster of emotions. Readers will find that the characters’ youthfulness and passion for love awaken their very own passions as well.
