Becoming Rain is a suspenseful romance revolving around the world of a high stakes car theft ring. The plot is filtered through dual point of views.Clara is an undercover officer who has gone incognito, as Rain Matines, to take down this organization. Her success comes with a price of not being able to maintain a normal relationship with a man. While this bothers her to a point, the reward of succeeding in her line of work fuels her fire.Luke first appears in Burying Water as the best friends to Jesse. Luke’s uncle Rust raised and groomed him to take over both of his businesses; legal and illegal. The appeal of monetary benefit draws Luke into desiring the dangers involved with the illegal activities.
A covert operation is put into place with Rain being the key player in executing the manipulation of this take down. Rain must entice Luke to befriend her and allow her access to his life. Unfortunately, her initial attempts at luring him were failures.
Lines become blurred as Rain divulges deeper into Luke’s life. Her feelings for him crossover from being someone to put behind bars to someone who is a good guy caught up in the wrong crowd.
Just like Burying Water this book takes place in Oregon. Oregon is known for a lot of things and one of those is how GREEN it is. The green is a result of all the rain that’s dumped on Oregon. I love this little interchange between the characters about rain:
“I’ve never met anyone who actually loves rain. It’s kind of weird. But cool, too. I just don’t get it.” ~Luke
“It’s not so much that I love rain. I just have a healthy respect for what it does. People hate it, but the world needs rain. It washes away dirt, dilutes the toxins in the air, feeds drought. It keeps everything around us alive.” ~Rain
I love how the author used a double entendre with the word rain. Luke also needs “Rain” to help wash away the dirt that surrounds his environment.
I’m loving The Burying Water series with it’s intensity and compelling story line. I’m looking forward to the next installment.
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, DC, 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.
And don’t forget BURYING WATER, the first book in this thrilling series…
About BURYING WATER:
The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away.
Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?
Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.
The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.
