Title: Becoming Rain
Author: K.A. Tucker
Publication date: March 3, 2015
Summary: 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 a 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.
Review: I absolutely loved this book! It is the first book in a really long time I've been able to just jump into. At first I will admit I wasn't quite sure I would be able to read it. For me it started out kind of dull and slow. But soon enough I was hooked and hoping to not have to go to work so I could just keep reading. I fell in love with Rain and Luke quickly and always hoped for the best. Books like this always renew my belief in Love. The best part about this is that the whole focus is not romance. Yet it feels like that's all that matters. I absolutely will be looking for more books by this author. As always I wish the story would never end! 4 stars

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading, that allows us to share a teaser from our current reads each week. Anyone can join, and the rules are simple. Just:
Grab your current read
Open it to a random page
Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
Be careful not to include spoilers! (You don't want to ruin the book for anyone!)
And make sure to share the title and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesdays can add those books to their TBR piles in case they want to.
Here's our teaser for this week:
"That's my favorite Vonnegut quote' she said, pointing at the line I urge you to please notice when you are happy Hudson felt himself blush, wondering whether to confess that he had been the one to write it on the chalkboard a week ago." - Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid
What teasers do you guys have this week? Tell us in the comments!

I am happy to tell you all that I am back! My first review back (and of the year) will be on a book called Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid.
I know it's been quite sometime since I have posted and actually kept up on the blog. I do apologize for that I had some issues in my life that had to be taken care of. Now that everything is better and I hope you will all stick around while I try to jump back in to where I left off on the blog. Thank you all in advance for being patient with me. :)
Also, I hope you all excuse me on missing so many blog birthdays! Happy belated 4th birthday blog! 💙

Title: The Summer I found you
Author: Jolene Perry
Publication Date: 2014
Publisher: Albert Whitman & Company
Stars: 4.5 stars
Summary: Kate's dream boyfriend has just broken up with her and she's still reeling from her diagnosis of type 1 diabetes.
Aidan planned on being a lifer in the army and went to Afghanistan straight out of high school. Now he's a disabled young veteran struggling to embrace his new life.
When Kate and Aidan find each other neither one wants to get attached. But could they be right for each other after all?
Review: I really love this book. I feel like the story has two very good subjects that it is focused on. First wounded warriors, that's a huge part of this story. Also, a very large portion of way I loved this book. Adian is a young man who just lost someone who is very important to him and some one who has lost his arm. Second diabetes, not many people understand this disease or how it affects people. I personally have multiple family members who suffer from diabetes. Main female character, I feel like I understand her well. I seem to be always drawn to characters who are strange. I don't know if that shows you my personality or just how I feel about myself. I feel like the author did a very good job with this book and all of her characters. I want to see more with these characters. I really like the cover, It's very pretty. 4.5 stars
