BECOMING BAD BLOG TOUR - Jess Raven and Paula Black

Becoming Bad

Book Two of the Becoming Series
How do you fight the monster when it is inside of you?The black lake beneath Dublin’s medieval city holds a secret. Imprisoned there for millennia, an ancient race of demi-gods have found a way to the surface and are preying on humans to feed their sexual appetites. Hunted to near-extinction, these half-men, half-beasts have been without a single female to breed a new generation. Until now.  All her life, Ashling DeMorgan feared her dreams. She kept her head buried in ancient mythology, because the real world seemed so much scarier. On returning to Dublin to settle her invalid grandmother’s affairs, Ash discovered a city plagued by the same wolf-like creatures that killed her mother. Their bite is like sexual heroin and Ash has been bitten. Now she is trapped in a waking nightmare, with the monster who ordered the death of the only man she’s ever loved. Made to doubt if she ever really knew the assassin-turned-guardian who stole her heart and gave his life for hers, Ash finds herself betrayed by her own changing body. In a dangerous world of suspicion and divided loyalties, Ash must come to terms with what she is becoming. Worse still, her infuriatingly arrogant captor may just prove to be her most unlikely ally in what will become a life and death race for survival. MacTire, king of a once formidable race, has lived his life in the shadow of a half-brother who took everything from him. Connal Savage seduced his mate and engineered a genocide that all but exterminated their species. Finally, he has a chance at retribution. Connal’s woman is his for the taking. But are the bonds of brotherhood so easily severed and are the ghosts of the past ever truly dead and buried, or will they come back to haunt him?

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...

Ash never thought she would return to Dublin, until her grandmother has a stroke and she is the only living family member to get her affairs in order. As soon as Ash arrives she starts to have nightmares of creatures destroying her childhood. But everyone else believes it was a murder suicide done by her stepfather. Ash knows the truth and so does her grandmother who up until this point had her hidden far away from Dublin.  Now she's in a strange place and having these nightmares but Ash still finds herself drawn to a huge man who has long dreads, his name is Connal. She wants him badly but at the same time she's worried he might be a stalker.
Connal was already warned by Ash's grandmother to keep his hands off Ash. He is only to protect her from the evils of her past, which are wolf-like creatures from a underworld that believe only Ash can help them rise again. They believe Ash is the only female who can bare their young. Connal is a hunter of his own people and he's made a deal with Ash’s grandmother. If he is able to stay out of the underworld he would hunt his kind who came to do harm. If his people are above ground when the full moon is gone they would die a painful death.
This is a little funny how they Hint at little red riding hood. He calls her little red and she calls his Big Bad.
