Imagine if you will a story begun in the halls of Mount Olympus long before this modern tale was conceived. It was a time when the god Hermes flew on his winged sandals and carried messages from the gods to the mortals below. And between that time and this, couriers became postmen and handwritten letters became bytes. It is said the gods still speak to those who listen…

4.5 out of 5. This is a very erotic novel that brings that brings together two strangers--not often a safe endeavor--but in this case Vivianne takes a chance and posts an erotic tale that she has written ten years earlier and the response was almost totally positive. Encouraged by a particular response from the mysterious Mr. S, Vivianne begins this exchange that slowly but surely becomes the source of a renewed sense of herself as a winsome and desirable woman, a change she sorely needs after b...more

Does it feel too far fetched to think of today's connections through the internet as messages from the gods? Certainly it is now possible to get email from the farthest reaches of the planet in a matter of seconds. Perhaps it is our contemporary connection to the long-forgotten gods and their messenger Hermes. No more far fetched than some of the sci-fi fantasies that have become reality in just the past three or four decades. That being said, it certainly felt like a message from some benevolen...more

OVERALL RATING: 4.5/5 stars.

STORY: 4/5 stars.
CHARACTERS: her ~ 5/5 (character development; bonus for me!), him ~ 4/5 (his person only came into play in the end.)
HOTNESS: 5+/5 chilies <3

This is an extremely sexual tale, that was well done. Wow, me likes! I liked the story and it really was nicely done/"performed". Even the H's identity wasn't annoyingly obvious. I loved their e-mails exchanges and especially how lyrical they made them.
It was quite funny seeing how an author can change her styl...more

Every now and then an erotic romance catches you pleasantly by surprise. Hermes Online is just such a book. Because we get to know the characters mostly through email and chat dialog, I expected them to feel under developed somehow, but I found the opposite to be true. We get a very steamy relationship right off the bat, full of fantastic dirty dialogue, and the best part is that it never feels rushed or forced. We really want this unconventional relationship to work out.

I loved this book. This is wordsmithing. Ms. Anderson's style is poetic and visual. Who would not have fallen madly in love with S? I did. Don't miss this book. It reminded me to put poetry in my life. I'll be reading this book again, and I await more of Ms. Anderson's work with baited breath. Read this story. You'll love it.
I just finished this review for The Forbidden Bookshelf, so I'll post it here once it goes live there. =) Until then, I will just say... WOW. Totally unexpected - this blew me away. It is beautiful and charming and modern and, well, perfect.

This story was great. It is a fun fantasy that’s smoking hot! A+ The plot was unique and flowed very fast. The characters are likeable and the plot keeps you reading until suddenly, you’ve finished it. Can’t wait for the next book from Ms. Anderson
I just finished this book last night. Holy cow. If you enjoy a steamy erotic romance I recommend Hermes Online by Rose Anderson. It's both heartfelt and very real. It makes you happy to be privy to the story unfolding. Great read. Can't say enough.

Where to start…? It’s not often a story actually hits home but this one certainly did. It’s an erotic story to be sure, but in many ways, it’s also a very sweet love story…of a woman and her Prince Charming in this day of impersonal, Internet connections. Rose Anderson’s tale touched me because I met the man I love online, and though we never got as graphic as Vivienne and S, we chatted, we met, and we stayed together until he passed away.

This was one story I didn’t want to put down until it wa...more
Summary: Vivienne has been having a difficult time since finding her boyfriend in bed with another woman. It particularly didn’t help when he told her that she drove him to it since she was boring in bed. Now she feels sad, boring and unsexy. In an effort to cheer her up, a friend sends her a link to an adult literature site. Viv enjoys reading the stories and decides to submit an erotic story that she had written years ago. She is surprised to receive many positive comments on her piece. One co...more
WOW! what beautifully written story. I didn't want it to end. I have already recommended to all my friends to read. Thank you Rose Anderson

Recommends it for: folks willing to embrace painful mediocrity for the sake of harmless contemporary romanceess
mediocre writing and wholly implausible denouement.

it's harmless, and at times cute, but there's really very little to recommend it.
