Becoming Rain by KA Tucker
I loved Burying Water so I was very excited to read Becoming Rain
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. ​

This story started slow for me.  But once I got into it, I couldn't put it down.  I loved Luke from the beginning.  I thought he was sucked into something he didn't understand, and he really was a good guy.He was sweet and sexy and confused all at the same time.  Rain/Clara was a little harder, it took me awhile to get on board with her.  But as we got into the story I could feel her turmoil and heartbreak.  She struggled with her job and her developing feelings for Luke.  I felt for Luke and his heartbreak and confusion. 
This was story is definitely suspenseful and I had no idea where it was going.  At about 80% I had no idea how this could have a happy ending.  It was definitely a thrill ride, and I really enjoyed it.

I loved also getting a glimpse of Alex and Jesse.  This book can be read as a standalone, but I recommend reading Burying Water.  We first meet Luke in Burying Water, and it's such a great story.
