Book Review: Becoming Rain

Title Becoming Rain

Series Burying Water, book 2

Author K. A. Tucker

Release Date March 3, 2015

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.

I really love the way K. A. Tucker writes book series (side note: series is such a strange word being both plural and singular; it really messes with my head). I like that they can all be standalone books, but work best together.

Becoming Rain was a fantastic book. I loved it all the way through. It felt more intense and, in my opinion, had a stronger storyline than the first book did. However, it was similar to Burying Water in one sense... the ending. I wanted just a little bit more! However, unlike the first book, I didn't feel like it was necessarily needed. I'm just being greedy.

As with anything else K. A. Tucker writes, I'm looking forward to the next book in the series, Chasing River. Though I don't know any details, I do know it's sure to be another great read.


5 out of 5 stars
