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.

Excerpt :

“Let us know if you have any more problems.” Luke flashes that wide, charming smile that stalls my feet just a little.
Still no mention of connecting again. In fact, I’d say Luke has gone out of his way to skirt the subject. He’s just not interested. That’s all there is to it. Or maybe he’s waiting for me to bring it up again. But if he’s not, then bringing it up will make me look desperate. I’m guessing he doesn’t like desperate women.
Luke Boone has me in a tailspin. No target has ever had me second-guessing myself this much, this early. It’s just the pressure of the case, I remind myself. “I’m sure I will.” I take long, slow steps, ensuring my movements are sleek and appealing, the opposite of my frantic thoughts, as I desperately search for another hook, since nothing I’m casting has caught so far.
“So, when did you say you’re cooking dinner for me?”
I fight the urge to groan with relief but I can’t keep the smile from exploding across my face. “Whenever you call me.” I turn to regard him, to see his smug face—like he knew I was waiting for it all along, like he was toying with me—and nod to the sheet on his desk. “You have my number.”
“I do.” His eyes twinkle. “I’ll call you soon.”
Thank fucking God.
I wait until I’m in my car and around the corner before turning off my wire and squealing like a fourteen-year-old who just got asked out to the movies. I dial Warner to debrief, my heart still racing. It’s standard protocol to call in after every meeting with my target. Up until now, I’ve had nothing but failure to report. And, while this may not seem like much . . .
I think I’m finally in.

~ 4.5 Raindrop Stars ~

Wow….what an intriguing story. This book was filled with lies, secrets, betrayal, romance and love. Becoming Rain is the second book in K.A. Tucker’s Burying Water Series. I know that every time I pick up one of K.A.’s books it is going to suck me in and sweep me away. This book was no different. She has an amazing talent at creating stories that are unique and captivating, that it makes it hard to put them down. I will say that I did like Burying Water just slightly better than this book, but this was still an amazing book. I think the only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was because the story kind of moved at a slower pace than I like. With that said it didn’t take away from me completely enjoying this book.

One thing I LOVED about this story was the amount of planning and preparation and research she had to have put into this book. This stroyline was so well executed that you felt like you were a part of the story. I can honestly say that I haven’t read another book with this type of storyline. (being in the head of undercover cop) This book was so much more than just a love story, even though the romance part of the story plays a part in it, it, to me, wasn’t the main focus of the book. This book was filled with so many twists and turns and sticking revelations, that it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole thing. I obviously don’t want to give anything away, so I will just say….Read This Book!!!!

This book can be read as a standalone, but I truly believe that Burying Water should be read first, so that you get the build up for this story. In book 1 we get introduced to Luke and his Uncle Rust, and are given some little bits of what Rust’s life is like. But this book dives much deeper into that life and I feel you really need that background from book 1 to really understand the direction of this story. Plus you will get the background on Alex, Jesse, and Gabe, who make an appearance in this book as well.

My only real negative of this book were that I wanted more out of the ending. It does have a happy ending, but it fell short for me, I wanted more. I can’t explain why without giving anything away, but once you read it you’ll understand.

What I loved the most was that this book wasn’t predictable, K.A. kept you guessing throughout the book. Yes you could guess the premise of the story, but how it all unfolds will take you by surprise. We also get dual POV, so we got to be in both Luke and Rain’s (Clara) head.

I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. I can say without a doubt that if you pick up a K.A. Tucker book you won’t be disappointed. (In my opinion). She is an auto read author for me. I will read anything she writes.

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.
