Blog Tour: Medusa's Heart by Joey W. Hill

John Pierce has been in covert operations all his adult life. He doesn’t know anything else but that and being a Dom, because that’s how he blows off steam and balances the nagging emptiness inside of him. Since he was a kid, he’s carried around an infatuation that’s grown into an embarrassing obsession. He’s in love with a myth—Medusa
“Mad Merlin” Maddock doesn’t think that’s crazy. He believes in powers deeper and stronger than men or gods, a connecting energy like the oceans. To those powers, healing a broken heart could create a ripple effect in the universe impacting all, even if that heart lives in the alternate dimension of folklore and myth. JP is the first one Maddock plans to send across those lines to bond with the woman he’s always wanted.
JP agrees to be his first guinea pig for two reasons. One, Maddock is so damn convincing, and two, the need for her has tripled since he met the guy. If Maddock can send JP into her world, JP will let nothing stop him from claiming her for his own and healing her heart, because he’s sure as hell she’s the missing piece of his.
He just has to make sure she doesn’t turn him into lawn ornamentation first.

Rating/Review: 4.5 cups this one is all of Ms. Hill's fantastic world building from previous books all rolled into one emotional and enthralling tale of survival and redemption!

Medusa's Heart is in one word intense.  Ms. Hill is really remarkable when it comes to transmitting characters emotions through the written word and Medusa's Heart is no exception.  This book is a mix bag of genres, readers will probably have no idea how to classify it except that it definitely belongs in Ms. Hill's fantastic worlds  from her previous books.  The plot is definitely a re-exploration of the myth of Medusa, the woman who can turn you into stone.  Here, the author does her research well delving into the myth and adapting it to a modern day situation, rape.  The subject matter is heavy, how to survive it, to move forward and to trust again.  Although, John Pierce appears as the knight in shining armor, its more by his offering of himself, of his own trust to Medusa that slowly makes her reciprocate in return.  However, it doesn't stop there, apparently Ms. Hill has decided that aside from mixing myth with sci fi, adding on paranormal and fantasy elements plus characters from her previous books is a must for this book.  A pinch of action/adventure and other potential romances is added to give readers one totally unique and enthralling romance also known as Medusa's Heart.  Readers are asked to watch out for the snakes (since they are completely adorable!)

Though much of her work is BDSM, she has built her reputation on award-winning romances with absorbing characters who not only attract fans of the genre, but readers who would "never" read BDSM romance. "Whatever genre you're writing, if the characters are compelling and sympathetic, the readers are going to want to see what happens to them. It can be the coolest storyline ever, but if the reader could care less whether the hero or heroine survive (in fact, in some cases they may be rooting for their destruction just so they can be done with the darn thing), then it's not a story worth reading."
