This is one of those books that has stuck with me ever since I finished reading it. It's very erotic and at times, the sex dabbles on the darker side - a little bit BDSM-ish - but nothing too hardcore.
What makes this erotic story so unique is that it has so much heart and soul, it almost tore me apart at times. Although the cover portrays this book as light and fluffy romance/erotica, it is anything but that. This has a VERY dark undercurrent to it, and the spiritual connection it makes to sex i...more
The story focuses on Jonah and Anna--Jonah is an angel and the Prime Legion Commander of all the angels and has fought The Dark Ones for centuries. He's pretty much at a point in his life that he feels he's lost his soul to the very things that he's fighting against....more
Highly romantic and emotional, this is a wonderful adventure where the erotic part blends perfectly in the story. However better to say it now: keep a box of tissues at hand!!
I was immediately driven by the story written by Joey W. Hill, and the numerous erotic scenes didn’t bother me at all since they were so part of the tales and I was so immerse in it that at a time I became a really wreck, crying like a baby but not wantin...more

Let me tell you, Joey W Hill does a brilliant job in writing this book. Sets the foundations of the story with the characters Jonah & Anna and builds the emotional ride and turmoil that goes with it. Jonah is an arrogant angel that falls out of the sky after battle. Feeling disillusioned about his deity and what he is doing, he just wants to die. Anna is a daughter of Arian...more
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...more
