Review: Wicked Ride (Realm Enforcers #1) by Rebecca Zanetti

If you love the Dark Protectors, these wicked hot Realm Enforcers are for you!

Alexandra Monzelle is a hard-fighting, heat-packing Seattle vice cop, and she’s not much interested in being protected. Her short skirt and sex-kitten heels are tools to lure her suspects into talking about the deadly new drug hitting the streets. She can take care of herself and then some. Unfortunately, she can’t seem to get that through to Kellach Dunne.

Kellach is a fresh import from Dublin, and he’s landed at the heart of a vicious motorcycle club that deals in guns, narcotics, and mayhem. He’s all male, all rough power—and all interference in her damn investigation. Maybe he’s one of the good guys. Maybe not. Lex knows an affair with an immortal like him would risk everything. No matter how delicious he looks…

I’m not completely sold on MC stories. Occasionally I’ll dabble in reading one here and there but my real love in romance is PNR. Rarely will I turn one of those down. So I’m looking at the blurb, I see immortal (IE: PNR) and MC, I’m sold. Wicked Ride does not disappoint.

 

So I may have found the blurb a little lacking. I see ‘short skirt and sex-kitten heels’ and I’m thinking Alexandra is a bit trashy. Instead, I discover, she is one very smart cop. And as usually, she works undercover, meaning as bait, as it seems all female cops have to portray. However, she’s not a twit and comes off as very smart, very tough, and very much not into taking crap. She does, however, have one annoying flaw to me – her flip-flopping back and forth on her trust with Kellach. Enough already! Now Kellach, hubba-hubba! This witch is sex on a broomstick and quite the combination between brawn and brain. Now him I get why he’s keeping his secrets from her. Witch, human, immortals, yeah that’s a secret I can get behind. Doubts, trusts and secrets aside, the chemistry between Kellach and Alexandra is combustible whether it’s between the sheets or on the job and keeps this fact paced story moving and me riveted from cover to cover.

 

There’s lots of action and suspense in this book as they try to solve the mystery surrounding Apollo. Along with the A&S is a whole slew of secondary characters, good and bad. Bad ones – boo! Good ones- gimme more of them! You got Kellach’s brothers and cousin who squabble, challenge and irritate him as only family can do. And then there is Bear, who is a, well, a bear! These four need their own books they were so entertaining. Alexandra and Kellach have a most satisfactory HEA, however the story line itself, and all the fun extra characters, are left with a tantalizing ending filled with unanswered questions. Not quite a cliffhanger, but enough for me to be intrigued with the ‘what happens next’ with them and Apollo

 

There’s only one flaw I found with this new series. As a new reader of Rebecca Zanetti, I kept feeling like I was missing something. There were characters and storylines I kept feeling I should know, or it was assumed I would know about. I’m guessing it comes from her previous series, Dark Protectors. For example, the king. The king of whom, I’m not sure of, yet his presence in this book had a familiarity about him and his background I feel I should know but I don’t. Or who and where the enforcers originate from. I’m hoping as this series progresses, those questions will get answered, but it’s that perceived flaw that is keeping me from giving this book 5-stars. I’m still recommending Wicked Ride, but I will attach a warning label that if you didn’t read the previous series, expect to feel left out.
