Thursday’s Haiku Review Moment: A Witch’s Beauty by Joey Hill

A long time romance reader was inspired to write me the occasional haiku review after visiting I asked whether she would do one for me once a week and I’ve finally bugged her enough that she’s given in. So Thursday afternoon check in for the Thursday Haiku Review Moment.


A witch’s beauty
Should be "A witch’s booty’
No legs need apply

David angel hunk
Mina is evil slam dunk
Or is she just sad?

Two tentacle legs
Virgin girly parts between
Of course, hero scores

Don’t get excited
Hentai fans! Sex is too tame.
Joey Hill, declawed.

World building is light
I have unanswered questions
Did not read book 1.

Still satisfying
Is it wrong I bought this for
Hardcore squid-leg sex?


This book can be purchased in trade paperback from Amazon or ebook format from the Sony Store and other etailers someday but it’s not even out in Kindle.

    Maybe I should have put a disclaimer in my review: Cover is misleading. No tentacle sex. LOL!

    Wait, no tentacle sex? How? I thought there wasn’t dragon sex either. What kind of sex do they have? Does she grow legs, too?

    Disclaimer. I haven’t read the book (yet)

    But I do know Joey wrote these books wanting to branch into something a little different than what she normally does. ;) Us writers get bored doing the same old thing (or at least I do).

    And now I’m going to go to bed thinking of tentacle sex. Um. Ew.

    If I scream in horror the next time the Red Lobster waiter asks me if I want tartar sauce, I’m blaming Zoe. *pounds head on desk in attempt to dislodge mental image*

    For some reason I keep wanting to holler “Octopussy!”

    “Hey, ‘s okay. I like mine with dill-pickle chunklets, anyway. Now, if you could pass me some lemon juice . . .”
