About BECOMING RAIN:
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.
SARAH'S 4.5 REVIEW:
I absolutely love everything that K.A. Tucker writes. I fell in love with her writing when I read Ten Tiny Breaths a few years ago. Her books always take you on an emotional rollercoaster and I love it. Becoming Rain is the story of Luke Boone who we first meet in Burying Water. I recommend reading Burying Water first as it gives a look into the lives of some of the characters we see in Becoming Rain.
"Guilt and happiness go to war inside of me as I fall. I wonder which one will win."
Luke Boone works for his uncle Rust at his garage and wants to learn more about his uncle's side job. He isn't sure what it all involves but he loves the money, the women and the fancy cars. He has had to work his way up in the business and when Rust finally lets him Luke is beyond excited. His world though is quickly turned upside down when a beautiful girl named Rain comes to the shop to get her car fixed. Will Luke let Rain into his world or will he keep her away so she doesn't get involved in his sketchy life?
Clara Bertelli (AKA Rain Martinez) is a twenty six year old girl who works as an undercover agent for the FBI. She has been sent to Portland to help expose a car theft ring. Her target is the very sexy Luke Boone. She must figure out a way into his world without revealing her true identity. The relationship between Luke and Rain starts out pretty slow but once everything is in place it picks up pretty quickly. The last thing Rain should be doing is falling for the target but when she is with Luke she see a different side of him. What will happen when the lines begin to blur? Will Rain be able to stay away from Luke and get her job done? Will she be able to save Luke from a life he doesn't know he is getting himself involved in?
I loved the connection between Luke and Rain. I felt bad for Rain as she had to decide between her job and a relationship with Luke. It was nice to catch up with Jesse and Alex. I wish we would have gotten a look further into the future of Luke and Rain. I highly recommend this book and can't wait to see what K.A. is working on next.
We first meet Luke Boone in Burying Water as Jesse's best friend and coworker. Luke works for his Uncle Rust who's an unsavory character and also begins to start fencing stolen cars for him. Unfortunately, Luke's made some bad decisions and things may start getting a little more hairy, unbeknownst to him.
Clara who's known as Rain begins to infiltrate Luke's life. She's working undercover trying make a big career move. She tries her hardest to get Luke to fall for her and give away any secrets he may be in on. Luke's not the romantic fall in love at first sight kind of guy so it takes her longer than she expected and she begins to make some bad decisions.
Even though you kind of think you how the story's going to play out there's suspense and intrigue there and a few curveballs. You have to figure out who's playing who and who's really deceiving the other.
While I gave Becoming Rain 4 stars I don't feel as strongly for it as I did Burying Water. It's nothing KA Tucker did, it's just that for me, the original book one tends to hold my heart.
And don’t forget BURYING WATER, the first book in this thrilling series…
Amazon ** Barnes & Noble ** iBooks ** Kobo ** IndieBoundAbout 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.
