Review for A Mermaid's Kiss by Joey W. Hill

A Mermaid's Kiss by Joey W. Hill
My good friend Michelle once gently suggested that I check out an author named JR Ward, not knowing that I would turn into one of those (slightly) deranged fans who actually joined The Black Dagger Brotherhood message boards on this author's website.  Point being, Michelle is chock full of excellent recommendations.  This past weekend she told me to check out Joey W. Hill and offered me her copy of A Mermaid's Kiss (which, let's face it, she's never getting back!).  I am in love! What an amazing author, what an amazing book...it has the perfect combination of lusty sex and that emotional love connection I crave in romances.  It also has an awesome paranormal world with angels, demons, witches, mermaids, fairies, dragons....you name it, she's got it. Jonah (an angel who is the Prime Legion Commander for the Goddess) is the kind of tortured hero I cannot resist.  As he struggles with his inner demons, Anna (an innocent and loving mermaid) reawakens his will to live.  Hill is one incredible writer...I was sucked into the story from page one and totally forgot I was reading a book until my kids got back from school and ran screaming into the house. (Then I set them up with a snack and locked myself in my bedroom until I finished). I am now going to Amazon to order the next installment, A Witch's Beauty. Thank you, Michelle...I owe you one! Grade: A+
With happiness in her heart, Penelope

Glad you enjoyed it Nina. Joey Hill is one of my favorite authors and she can do sophisticated emotional connection and character and relationship growth like no other. Her worlds are highly sensual and many of her characters complex souls tortured by the dark brutality of life, both in this contemporary world and in alternative paranormal realities. I highly recommend her books, although her contemporaries are highly erotic romances with scenarios and subject matter requiring a mature audience.

Joey Hill is, hands down, my absolute fave erotica author. She's so good that I get the downloads and then buy the print version, too. It's killing me, because Rough Canvas FINALLY came out in print, and I'm forcing myself to wait until RT to buy it so I can get it autographed.
