When I read Burying Water, I remember being blown away by the story. How it was suspenseful, mysterious yet romantic at the same time. Becoming Rain was a little higher on the crime/suspense, but it was still one I really enjoyed.
Luke Boone is Jesse’s best friend and roommate. He was the guy in the first book who you could tell had a good heart, but made some questionable choices. You see, Luke was born into a life of crime. His uncle is trying to groom him to take over the ‘business’, but right now most everything he’s doing is within the law.
Clara Bertelli- aka Rain is working undercover. She’s trying to make her way into the FBI and this undercover case is just what she needs to give her that push. Her task is simple. Get Luke to talk. Whatever means necessary. She’s young and attractive, so it shouldn’t be too difficult… right? Well, Luke doesn’t make it that easy on her. Luke is focused on more than just girls and seems to show Rain he’s not the guy she thinks he is time and time again.
When she finally does cross his path, she see’s a different side of him. Lines will blur.
I’ve broken one of the most basic rules of undercover work: don’t get emotionally attached to your targets.
Rain is so different from any other girl Luke has met. She makes him want to open up to her. For the first time, he feels like he can trust someone.
Luke and Rain’s relationship was forbidden to the max. Rain isn’t supposed to care about Luke. Isn’t supposed to want to be with him in that way. He is a criminal. She is a cop. It can’t ever be anything. It can’t ever go anywhere. So why does she feel things for him? Why does she believe deep down he is a good man? And why does she want him so badly?
As things start to heat up between this couple, feelings start to develop. Feelings that are dangerous for Rain to have.
Luke and Rain were both characters I enjoyed reading about. Luke is one of those guys that proves you wrong time and time again. I loved his heart. Sure, he’s sexy as hell. He also has some questionable characteristics, but there is no denying that deep down he is a good person. And Rain- she was fantastic. I loved the turmoil she felt, the push and pull of doing the ‘right thing’ and what she felt was right.
Tucker is a supreme story teller. She has this way with her writing that draws you in and makes you want to keep reading, to find out whats going to happen with these characters and their lives. This is not just a romance. It’s a complex story that’s full of suspense, mystery and drama. But there is love too. The biggest theme of this story is the choices we make. We all have choices we make in life and they shape the people we become. Luke and Rain had some huge choices to make and I love the path those choices took them on.
I don’t care about any of it. All I want to do is lean forward and kiss him. Steal him away from the bad stuff, convince him to start over because-

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.
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.
