ARC Review: "Becoming Rain" (Burying Water #2) by K.A. Tucker

Becoming Rain (Burying Water, #2)Becoming Rain by K.A. Tucker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

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. 



Recieved an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

K.A. Tucker did it again! From "Burying Water" comes a new story of decption, love and forgiveness!
Clara is a cop who takes an undercover role in order to stop a wide ring of illegaly selling cars from America to the world. Luke, Jess friend from Book 1, is one of those working for this operation and meets Clara as Rain a sweet, loving woman. But what happens when emotions change and the lines blur?

Told from dual POV, both Clara and Luke get their own stories. Clara is a strong woman with a sense of justice and the need to uncover the villains. Luke on the other hand, while he seemed to me somewhat boyish and naive, he was also a man of secrets which brought him closer to Clara.

As the story progress everything becomes harder for both of them and when the time comes, truths are revealed and secrets become uncovered. I liked the way the book progressed, the smooth plot and the complete characters. I hope Tucker will write more on this series, since she likes to spend time to envolve her characters and save them from their surroundings and sometimes making them better people too!
