Dating Games: Becoming Rain by K.A. Tucker

Dating #5

Welcome to the Dating Games Event! Each day we want to focus on a *New Adult* couple to see how well they know each other. Today we are featuring Luke and Rain from Becoming Rain by K.A. Tucker! Becoming Rain is the second novel in the Burying Water series. This novel will be released on March 3, 2015 from Atria Books!

*Enter for a chance to win a copy of Becoming Rain at the end of this post! Don’t forget to enter here for the Dating Games International giveaway!*


Dark Faerie Tales: Luke we are going to start with you so Rain could you please leave the room.  I am planning on asking you a few questions and I want you to be as honest as possible. But I also want you to remember that this is a game, and you want your questions to match Rain’s if possible so keep that in mind when you are answering each question.

All couples should know what their partners favorite meal is, so they can make it when they are in trouble :D ! Luke can you tell me what Rain’s ideal meal would be? Also what is your favorite meal so we can see if Rain knows what it is?

Luke: “Uh… Anything Italian. Yeah, Definitely. But it has to be made by an Italian. Don’t get her started on the food carts downtown… Me? That’s a no-brainer. Chef Boyardee.”

DFT: We know you are in the business of fixing cars and see many different cars on a regular basis. So I was wondering if Rain was a car which one would she be and why?

Luke: “I have a feeling she’d going to hate me calling her a car. But, if I have to for the sake of this game, I’d say a Bentley. A new one. Smooth and sleek, and yet classy. A timeless beauty.”

DFT: What is the one thing Rain does that always gets you in the mood? Also what’s the one thing you do that instantly turns her on?

Luke: “She shows up? Seriously, I just have to see Rain and I’m in the mood, But part of that could be the issue with… you know. Her? I wish I knew because I’d be doing it all the time. She’s hard to read though. A bit hot and cold, sometimes. Though, again, it’s part of her past. I can respect that.”

DFT: What do you think Rain’s opinion was of you the first time you met?

Luke: “She was into me right away. I could see it in those light blue eyes, the second she peeled her sunglasses off. She made it pretty obvious, too. ”

DFT: How do you think you can make your sexual life more successful/fun or do you think it’s perfect the way it is?

Luke: “By actually having sex? No, don’t tell her I said that. My official answer is, ‘it’s perfect’.”

DFT: Where do you see Rain and you in 10 years from now?

Luke: “I don’t even know where I see myself in 10 months, let alone 10 years. Things are a bit complicated right now… All I know is that I want her there. Even if it’s still living across from me.”

Burying WaterBecoming Rain

DFT: Ok Rain it is now your turn to come on out and answer all the same questions that we just asked Luke.  Try to see if you can get the same answers and both of you will get to comment at the end on each other’s answers!

All couples should know what their partners favorite meal is, so they can make it when they are in trouble :D ! What is your ideal meal?  Also what is the meal you would make for Luke if you were in trouble?

Rain: “That’s easy. A plate of meats and cheeses and a bottle of Chianti. And I’m guessing Luke didn’t get that right. What would I make Luke? Well, seeing as he lives off of Chef Boyardee when he’s left to his own devices, I’d make him a lasagna or meat ball sandwich. Something Italian, and not made by a random guy in a shed downtown.”

DFT: We know that Luke is in the business of fixing cars and see many different cars on a regular basis. So we are wondering if you were a car which one would you be and why?

Rain: “What would Rain be… let’s see. Something sleek and high-end, but not pretentious. An Audi RS 5, which is exactly why I picked it.”

DFT: What is the one thing you do that always gets Luke in the mood? Also what’s the one thing Luke does that instantly turns you on?

Rain: “It took me a while to figure out the answer to that. All I can say is that I lured him in with my wit, and now all I have to do is walk into a room. Or not. A lot can be done with a window. He’s a very visual guy. All Luke seems to have to do lately is smile, and I forget who I am. It’s going to be my undoing one of these days.”

DFT: What was your impression of Luke the first time you met him?

Rain: “Cocky, self-assured… Trouble. But I wanted to catch his eye.”

DFT: How do you think you can make your sexual life more successful/fun or do you think it’s perfect the way it is?

Rain: “It’s perfect just the way it is… for now. There’s no need to rush.”

DFT: Where do you see Luke and you in 10 years from now?

Rain: “Happy… and safe, with no regrets. I hope for that every day.”

DFT: Luke you now get to tell us what you thought of Rain’s answers!

Luke: “Sorry… too busy smiling for her.”

DFT: Rain how do you think Luke did? Were his answers accurate?

Rain: “About as accurate as I’d expect of a twenty-four-year-old guy who lives for reality television.”

Becoming Rain

Available March 3, 2015 from Atria Books

About this Book:

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.
