"A smart and sexy thrill ride...Tucker's best writing yet." (Karina Halle USA Today bestselling author of Love, in English)
“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)

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.Read more ›
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...
