“Tucker deftly steers the damsel-in-(serious, nearly fatal, possibly mob-related)-distress-rescued-by-a-knight-in-shining armor storyline, making these star-crossed lovers compelling. A sexy romantic, gangster-tinged page-turner.” (Kirkus Reviews on Burying Water)

I absolutely love everything that K.A. Tucker writes. I fell in love with her writing when I read Ten Tiny Breaths a few years ago. Her books always take you on an emotional rollercoaster and I love it. Becoming Rain is the story of Luke Boone who we first meet in Burying Water. I recommend reading Burying Water first as it gives a look into the lives of some of the characters we see in Becoming Rain.

"Guilt and happiness go to war inside of me as I fall. I wonder which one will win."

Luke Boone works for his uncle Rust at his garage and wants to learn more about his uncle's side job. He isn't sure what it all involves but he loves the money, the women and the fancy cars. He has had to work his way up in the business and when Rust finally lets him Luke is beyond excited. His world though is quickly turned upside down when a beautiful girl named Rain comes to the shop to get her car fixed. Will Luke let Rain into his world or will he keep her away so she doesn't get involved in his sketchy life?

Clara Bertelli (AKA Rain Martinez) is a twenty six year old girl who works as an undercover agent for the FBI. She has been sent to Portland to help expose a car theft ring. Her target is the very sexy Luke Boone. She must figure out a way into his world without revealing her true identity. The relationship between Luke and Rain starts out pretty slow but once everything is in place it picks up pretty quickly. The last thing Rain should be doing is falling for the target but when she is with Luke she see a different side of him. What will happen when the lines begin to blur? Will Rain be able to stay away from Luke and get her job done? Will she be able to save Luke from a life he doesn't know he is getting himself involved in?

Maaaaaaaaaan have I been looking forward to this book! Burying Water (the first book in this series) was the first book I read by K.A.Tucker although not the first one I wanted to read. Anyway I fell completely in love with the way she told the story I quickly devoured the first three novels in her Ten Tiny Breaths series, so you can imagine I was really looking forward to this!

The story is all about Luke Boone and Clara Bertelli – aka Rain. Clara is an undercover officer interested in Luke’s involvement in his uncle’s illegal side business.

First big bonus for me was the dual POV. I love that in a book and if you’ve read any of my reviews before you will most certainly know how much I love them and why! I love getting a sneaky peek into the guy’s POV. It worked so well here because Clara/Rain had a lot of preconceptions about Luke and presumptions about his lifestyle but when you actually get to read the story from Luke’s POV you can see exactly what his involvement is and appreciate the change in Rain’s feelings towards both Luke and the case throughout the story.

Although I really enjoyed the book and the characters I was wary of Rain throughout because she was deliberately deceiving Luke. I felt so bad for him especially when I could see his feelings for Rain changing into something more. In turn though, and in an almost karma-esque way, Rain’s feelings develop for Luke too which puts her in a tough position.

Throughout the story there is a definite element of danger and if you’ve read the first book it feels like that has carried over as a result of what happened in Burying Water. The threat lingers in the background and is laced throughout the book which keeps you on your toes and keeps you turning the pages.

Becoming Rain is a contemporary romance with a suspense/crime twist. The plot focuses on undercover police officer Clara and mechanic Luke (we first met him in Jesse's and Alex's book Burying Water). Clara is sent to infiltrate a car theft crime ring under the guise of being a young heiress called Rain. Luke is trying to get more involved in the family businesses and take more responsibility from his uncle.

I really enjoyed the suspense element and felt it added another layer to this contemporary romance. It's difficult to say much more about the plot without posting spoilers but I will say that I found the concept very clever and appreciated how K.A. Tucker kept my attention. She made me really care about both Rain and Luke. One of the reasons the story worked so well was because of the dual POVs. I'm not always a fan of this but here it helped to show Luke's character. Without his POV it would have been harder to decide whether he really was a nice guy or a criminal.

Clara is in a difficult position because she likes Luke (and his dog) and is really hoping he doesn't turn out to be a criminal. I liked Luke because although he wants to make his family proud of him, he isn't afraid to stand up for Rain.

I have to admit that as I approached the end of the book I was concerned about both of the characters safety (I'll let you discover what happens), but I was more concerned that we were going to be faced with a neatly concluded story which tied up too quickly. All I'll say is that I'm really looking forward to the next book...
