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.

This was a great book. I wasn't really sure how I would like Luke after reading about him in Burying Water, but I LOVED him.
Luke has been groomed for years to become a partner with his uncle. He doesn't know everything that his uncle is involved in, but he likes all the nice gifts his uncle gives him. He can't wait to take over the mechanic shop so he can get rid of Miller the manager. They don't see eye to eye, but Luke knows his uncle trusts Miller. Everything is falling into place and Luke is learning more about his uncles businesses. The last thing he needs is the distraction of the hot girl across the way. But Rain has his attention and he doesn't want to let her get away. Will he lose his way with his uncle? Or will he fall for Rain?
Rain is working undercover to bring Rust down. She is working her way in through Luke. She needs to bring these guys down so she can finally have hope of working for the FBI. She never expected to fall for Luke. She knows that criminals have a way of being charmers, but she sees the good in Luke. She wants to save him, but also needs to save herself. Can she bring Rust and his gang down? Or does she risk everything to be with Luke?
This was a very well done story. It had just enough story and mystery in it. I cannot wait to see what KA Tucker has in store for us next!!
And don’t forget BURYING WATER, the first book in this thrilling series…
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.
