Review- Becoming Rain by K.A.Tucker

Summary-

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.

Review-

Becoming Rain is the second book in K.A.Tucker's Burying Water series. I had really enjoyed Burying Water and that is reason I went to Becoming Rain right after. Becoming Rain is the story of Luke and Clara. We'd met Luke in the previous book itself and though he was not one of my favourite characters I was still curious to read his story. Plus I am not a big fan of skipping books in between series. I think Becoming Rain was an overall good read.

Let's start with Luke. Luke wants to get ahead in life like any other person. He wants to earn money and hopefully the way to that is by managing his uncle's garage. But his Uncle Rust is involved in many shady things which Luke unwittingly becomes a part of. I liked Luke but I didn't think he was anything special. His character wasn't as gripping as say Jesse's. I found it a little hard to believe that Luke though his Uncle and he could get away with the things they were doing without hurting anyone.

Then we have our heroine, Clara. Clara is an undercover officer and a good one at that. She has worked hard for her career and this one assignment will take her career to the next level. So Clara goes undercover as Rain in an attempt to uncover what's going on with Rust and his nephew, Luke. I liked Rain she was a smart heroine but she was not as good of a cop as they claimed her to be. Not my favourite heroine ever but an okay one.

The chemistry between Luke and Rain was easy to see. They are attracted to each other but they are both hiding a lot. Each has his or her own issues to deal with but somehow in the midst of everything they still feel that they only understand each other. I liked the pace at which the romance played out between Luke and Rain.

Again, we get both Luke and Rain's point of view in Becoming Rain and I really enjoy dual povs so that was a plus. One thing about K.A.Tucker's writing is that we get a fully fleshed out cast of characters and everyone has a role to play. With just the right amount of fiction to make it believable Becoming Rain was a good addition to the Burying Water series.
