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 is one of the great books that will make you question everything and everyone. Who do you trust? Is the mechanic who will one day inherit the family business as upstanding as he seems or is it just a facade? Is he as as loyal to his uncle as he appears or does the questions that lurk in the back of his mind prevent him from fully accepting this side business of his uncle's? Will those questions prevent him from doing what's right, what's legal?
What about the undercover agent, Clara? Will she stick with her plan to get to Luke's uncle Rust at all costs, even if it means screwing Luke to do so? Will she put her career and her heart on the line to save him? Will Luke ever discover Clara's deception and if he does, will they survive the truth?
Ms. Tucker does such an incredible job as she brings you to and through her characters emotional journeys and does a great job of recapping and highlighting the events of Burying Water (Book 1) without making it feel redundant or unnecessary. Both Water & Jesse are featured in this book and catches you up on where they are now.
I won't spoil this great read but suffice to say, by the time I got even 1/3 of the way through I already knew this book was going to the top of my favorites list! You won't regret getting lost in this second book in this series!
