You've heard of a do-over, well this is a Review-Over - Becoming Red by Jess Raven & Paula Black

Becoming Red
by Jess Raven & Paula Black

Goodreads blurb:  ‘You got me back. You always said you would.’

Ash DeMorgan, graduate, orphan, ice maiden, has long since consigned the fairytale nightmares of a troubled childhood to the realm of fantastical childish imagination.

Now, lured back to Dublin, the scene of her tragic past, Ash encounters a city pulsing under the dangerous sexual influence of a new street drug the locals call Rave. Nothing is as it seems. Ash is about to discover that her nightmares are real, ancient Irish myths are larger than life and roaming the streets of the medieval city, and she has become the prey in their erotic hunt. A step back into her past is about to become a high adrenaline race for survival.

Connal Savage, outcast, assassin, and living, breathing hunk of ancient mythology, has lived a thousand years servicing a debt of revenge. Dead inside. Until he encounters his boss’s granddaughter, an infuriating woman who threatens to lead him to hell with all his good intentions, who manages to chip away at the hard encrusted defences of a lifetime spent at war and burrow herself deep into a part of him that hasn’t breathed for centuries. He is about to discover that when it comes down to the wire, when you’re bargaining with the Grim Reaper for the life of the one you love, you will do anything...

Book one of The Becoming series. A new voice in paranormal fantasy and romance.

 My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 stars - I loved it!!
**received the book free from the Lovers of Paranormal group for an honest review

This story is awesome after the editing, I now give this book a 5 out of 5.  I read this book back in March and after being told about the editing decided to re-read it.  All of the issues were fixed.  The two authors write as one which is amazing to me since everyone writes differently.  The back story is tragic to both the female and male lead, but it helps draw you into their lives.  The drama, battles, and connections between the characters are exciting.  I was not happy where the ending left you hanging, but I will definitely be reading the next book which I’m sure was the point :)  I’m hoping some of my questions about her grandma and her will be answered in book 2. 

It is definitely worth reading and recommended to all PNR fans!!  :)

Interested in reading??
