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.
Sweet mother of romance. A new K.A. Tucker novel! If you have not read any of her books, you have no idea what you’re missing. I love her and I loved Becoming Rain!
Becoming Rain is the literal term for undercover agent Cara. She is to become Rain Martinez. Her assignment is to take down a theft car organization. The mission is to expose and take down the notorious Rust. The weak link is his nephew, Luke Boone. Rain is to befriend Luke. To learn his every steps. But things get out of hand and she falls for him.
What a mess! The operation was going well and the last thing Cara expected is to fall for Luke. I don’t blame her. Luke is a true gentleman.
Cara is on top of her game. She is one of the few women that has earn her reputation. She wants to exceed in her career and she must complete this mission with no flaw. Thinking she was going to bail out of the mission, as her relationship with Luke is heated, Cara does the unexpected. She knows Luke is a good guy and wants nothing but to help him. She knows Luke’s uncle is the one pulling all strings of the organization. Caught in the dilemma, will she do the right thing?
Written in dual POV, readers will love both characters. I loved reading Luke’s view the most. The way he expressed his feeling towards the things Rain does to drive him insane. I loved reading how he falls for her. I loved reading his curiosity. It was fun being inside his head.
Becoming Rain is full of suspense, betrayals, romance along with heated scenes. Fans of K.A. Tucker will not be disappointed. Those of you that have not read Burying Water, the first of this series, I highly recommend that you do.
