Luke Boone doesn't know exactly what his uncle Rust is involved in but he wants in on it-the cars, the money, the women. And it looks like he's finally getting his wish. When Rust hands him the managerial keys to the garage, they come with a second set-one that opens up the door to tons of cash and opportunity. Though it's not exactly legal, Luke's never been one to worry about that sort of thing. Especially when it puts him behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 and onto the radar of gorgeous socialite named Rain. Clara Bertelli is at the top of her game-at only twenty-six years old, she's one of the most successful undercover officers in the Washington D.C. major crime unit, and she's just been handed a case that could catapult her career and expose one of the west coast's most notorious car theft rings. But, in order to do it, she'll need to go deep undercover as Rain Martines. Her target? The twenty-four-year old nephew of a key player who appears ready to follow in his uncle's footsteps. As Clara drifts deeper into the luxurious lifestyle of Rain, and further into the arms of her very attractive and charming target, the lines between right and wrong start to blur, making her wonder if she'll be able to leave it all behind. Or if she'll even want to.

Does K.A. Tucker know how to write a bad story? No. This woman kills it every time she hits publish. I absolutely loved Becoming Rain and highly recommend you get your hands on this novel. This book is the second in her Burying Water Series, but it can be read as a stand alone.

Luke wants to go behind the scenes of his uncle's business. He knows Rust is doing off the table deals, and Luke can't resist the lure of money, cars, and women. Clara wants to destroy the illegal activities Rust is involved in. The FBI is sending her in as an undercover agent to get the scoop that will bring this empire down. The deeper Clara sinks into her life as Rain, the harder it becomes to dig herself out.

I loved Clara/Rain. She was ambitious and tough with a sharp personality. She isn't afraid to get her hands dirty and build a facade of lies in order to better herself professionally. As much as I wanted to dislike her for her deceitful tactics, I couldn't. I fell in love with Luke when he was introduced in Burying Water and was excited to get inside his head. He is a victim of circumstance, but also knowingly gets involved in the illegal aspects of his uncle's business. Tucker has created these characters that push you. Your heart flip flops between hurting for their misfortunes and disliking them for knowingly putting themselves in a bad situation in the first place.

This story is beautifully written. The further I went, the more invested I found myself in these characters and their outcomes. Moments would make my heart melt for our hero and heroine, and I'd forget their relationship was fabricated. They were just two people with a real connection. Twists unveiled themselves at the most unexpected places, and the story keeps you guessing until the very last page. Just because you're over 80% into Becoming Rain doesn't mean the story is tapering off into a happily ever after.

Once again I was lost in a world that was gritty and real. Everyone has an ulterior motive and the line between good and bad is practically nonexistent. Becoming Rain was a spectacular book from start to finish and I highly recommend reading this gem from K.A. Tucker. 

  And don’t forget BURYING WATER, the first book in this thrilling series…
Burying Water

Amazon ** Barnes & Noble ** iBooks ** Kobo ** IndieBound

About BURYING WATER: The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away. Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him? Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried. The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.
