Zanetti delivers decadently delicious romance in the second Realm Enforcers paranormal motorcycle club romance (after Wicked Ride), set in an alternate present-day Seattle. The supernatural wars have ended, but the fighting isn’t over. Dark and dangerous Daire Dunne is a witch enforcer for the Coven Nine, undercover in the city’s gritty underbelly as a member of a motorcycle club. He’s intent on finding the distributor of a deadly new drug that’s killing the city’s humans and may be weaponized to kill witches. His mission is compromised by the pretty face and deep secrets of one Cee Cee Jones—not her real name. Cee Cee, aka Felicity, has her own agenda: she wants to shut the drug down at the source. Her reasons aren’t quite as altruistic as Daire’s. But he has some information she needs, and a tendency to get in her way. The wild action rarely stops, sweeping readers along in the main plot while allowing a rich and satisfying romance to build between the leads. Agent: Caitlin Blasdell, Liza Dawson Associates. (Nov.)

Absolutely loved Daire and Felicity's story! It was funny, sexy, adventurous, sad, mysterious, etc. It had a little bit of everything! What I loved most of all was the fact that Felicity kept getting the best of Daire, despite him being the fiercest enforcer out there, that was just hilarious! Felicity was awesome! What she perceived to be flaws, everyone else saw as strengths. She was tough and a wicked fighter! The perfect counterpart to Daire Dunne! They complimented each other perfectly and same as his brother Kell, while he wants nothing more than to put Felicity in a plastic bubble to keep her safe, he knows that she can take care of herself and as long as he's there to back her up, gives her the space she needs to be herself and do what she needs to do. Felicity was a woman on a mission, hell bent on revenge and a master at planning! I would never want to cross her!! The chemistry between her and Daire...off the charts SIZZLING HOT! For readers who have read The Dark Protectors Series, this is a spinoff, therefore you will not be confused with all of the names and familial ties to the characters from that particular series, however if, like me, you have not as of yet read The Dark Protectors Series, then be prepared to have a bit of a hard and confusing time keeping up with all of those characters who make an appearance in this book...especially as all three of Felicity's sons are a part of this story.

Daire Dunne is a Coven Nine Enforcer. He’s working undercover as a member of a local MC. He emits authority with just a glance. So imagine his surprise when the beauty he takes home with him, drugs him and knocks him out after only a kiss, and then proceeds to ransack his home and steal important documents. Cee Cee is not human, and she just tricked Daire Dunne. She’s a demon, a pure breed demon. She loves robbing banks and blowing things up. When Daire finally catches up with her, he decides it’s easier to join her than try and beat her. This second book in Rebecca’s series brings in characters we first met in her Dark Protector series. You don’t have to read that series to know what is going on, but I would recommend it. It adds to the mystery and excitement. And boy, is there excitement! Rebecca is a fantastic paranormal writer who has created a world with supernatural beings that live and exist all around us. 5-stars for this new series!

What a plot! Loved that it was Cee Cee and Daire's story and pairing. And, that with their help, they are closer to stopping the deadly drug. A great addition to this series and also to the original series.

Wicked Edge is the second book in the Realm Enforcers series by Rebecca Zanetti. It is explosive from beginning to end...buckle your seat belt you are in for a wild ride. Daire Dunne is one lethal Coven Nine Enforcer. He is ready for a little down time from his duties. Nothing like a sexy blonde to take his mind off of his mission...too bad she might be a little more than he can handle. One passionate kiss is enough to intoxicate him or was it the drugs she pumped in him before she trashed his apartment, stealing sensitive information. Now, he is on the hunt for this elusive woman. Can he track her down and secure the files she stole before it is too late? Daire is one sexy, dangerous witch who takes his job as an enforcer seriously. He is definitely not a person you want to cross. Cee Cee will have to learn the hard way about his dangerous side. Cee Cee may look fragile, but she is cunning and just as dangerous as any enforcer. When Daire and Cee Cee are together sparks fly or is that just debris from their explosive encounters? This is one book I didn't want to put down. Can't wait for the next one!

Daire was undercover at the Titan's Fire Motorcycle Club. He was investigating for the witch nation. Daire was a 3 century old witch and an enforcer for his people. He was tracking a dangerous drug called Apollo that killed both humans and his people. CeeCee was a demon who drugged Daire to find out info from him. This story had everything: Drama, Romance, Explosions, Teleporting Demons, Witches, Shifters, Insane Enemies, Traitors, and a very dangerous drug being mined. What can I say, it was the whole package and I loved it. I loved the plot and overall story as well as the characters. I highly recommend. **I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review

This novel was exactly what I needed right now. It was the perfect escape from the everyday. Zanetti’s paranormal MC club is highly addictive. Plot twists came at me from left and right as I was drawn into the world that Zanetti has created. This author combines scenes that sizzle with action packed sequences that left me on the edge of my seat. The descriptions brought the world to life without detracting from the narrative & plot. The story came together as a seamless whole that was easy to get lost in. As fun as the main characters in this novel are as individuals, as a pair they were a class act. Each time they had a scene together the sparks flew. The banter and chemistry between them was fantastic. I loved the dynamic, fighting each other yet wanting each other. Readers really need to read the first novel in the series to get the full enjoyment out of this one. There were a couple of times when I found myself trying to recall what happened in the previous novel to get the full picture. But as a continuation of the series, this was a fantastic novel.

Reviewed by Angela and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog This second installment of the Realm Enforcers is about Daire Dunne. Just like his brother Kellach, Daire is an enforcer for the Coven 9. They continue working undercover for Titans of Fire MC in attempts to find out the source of the new drug that’s killing witches. While working, he meets Ceecee whom he cannot stay away from no matter how much of a loose cannon she is. Ceecee, much like Daire is just as determined to catch the bad guys but Ceecee has ulterior motives…revenge. The man who has done her loved one wrong has it coming to him and it is well overdue. She will stop at nothing to achieve it even if it means getting away from the man she wants to be with. While I enjoyed this book, I will admit that I had a hard time rating it. Rebecca Zanetti continues to deliver an action packed story full of sexy witches and shifters. Daire is the sweetest, protective alpha hero you could ask for but unfortunately, I can’t say the same about the heroine. Ceecee is a strong, independent heroine who had her mind set on doing things…her way. Unfortunately, some of her decisions involved drugging Daire repeatedly, and I just could not agree with it. She thought she was doing him a favor but resulted in her needing the help instead. For the life of me, I can’t understand why he kept falling for her tricks. Her decisions annoyed me and she bordered TSTL. I will admit that she redeemed herself in the end. I think the most important thing is that Daire forgives her. She’s very lucky to have him. Wicked Edge is not Zanetti’s best work but overall an enjoyable read. I’m hoping the next book will be about the sexy bear shifter.

Great Book! This is a great book; this is the second book in the Realm Enforcers series by Rebecca Zanetti. Daire Dunne is an Enforcer for the Coven Nine and is ready for a break. When he sees a sexy blonde at Titan’s of Fire party it is not long before the sexy blonde, Cee Cee is on his Harley and back at his apartment. Cee Cee ends up drugging him and steals valuable files, he is determined to track her down. Cee Cee is determined to take down the enemy who destroyed her family. If you are looking for a hot romance, then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to the next book in this series. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Wicked Edge is a high octane plot with a motor cycle riding paranormal alpha that lights these pages on fire. Looking for some down time Daire Dune, Coven Nine Enforcer, picks up a beautiful woman to help him out with his "needs". After a passionate kiss, Daire finds himself drugged and his Coven files missing. Cee Cee will do anything to gain revenge against the one responsible for killing her family, even leave the man that ignited a fire inside her. She never thought Daire would track her down. But now that he has, the sparks are going to fly because the chemistry between them is electrifying and goes both ways. Holy HOTNESS Batman! It’s a really rocky road but Cee Cee and Daire team up together to take down their foe. You see it’s the same enemy that also happens to be involved with Daire’s mission to stop the production and influx of planekite. Nail biting action from start to finish, I loved Wicked Edge Wickedly MARVELOUS! Wicked Edge is a fabulous and highly recommend new paranormal MC romance by Rebecca Zanetti I received this ARC copy of Wicked Edge from Kensington Books in exchange for a honest review.

5 - "You'll do." Stars! After a slight characterization wobble for me with the first book in the Realm Enforcers series, Rebecca Zanetti is back to full form. She pitched Wicked Edge perfectly from every angle, the story-line, character development, plot-lines and pacing all worked to make this book the best she has released since the end of the Dark Protectors series. I will be honest and say I think that is mainly because the story and writing style really took me back to the DP days, and the inclusion of a few of my favorite DP characters into it just added something really special into the mix. "I don't play games, sweetheart, and you've done nothing else since the first time I met you." Daire Dunne featured pretty heavily in Wicked Ride the anally retentive brother, who had a place for, and a plan for everything. I loved that in this book we get to delve deeper into him and his motivations for things. As with pretty much all of Rebecca's men, his is uber protective, overly alpha and absolutely adorable. I loved the build up of chemistry between him and Cee Cee from the get go, and how with each and every obstacle she threw in his path he just kept coming back for more. Swoons and sighs were abound from this reader for most of the book, not just because of his whole demeanor towards Cee Cee, but his acceptance of her and the things she was fighting for and believed in (albeit begrudgingly initially). "I sure like this side of you..." "This side?" "Aye. As opposed to the side that drugs me and gets me shot." Everything took off in this book, and from the wealth of characters that Rebecca introduced on the first book and developed further in this one, I am really hoping that this series grows and expands to more than just a few books. With the inclusion of the Dark Protectors characters at pivotal points and the running of several plots through other secondary characters, Rebecca has given this series plenty of directions and avenues in which I hope she takes her imagination and her writing skills to explore further. "No fire this time? "...Don't need fire. Just need you." I am happy and pretty excited for Wicked Burn which is due in June 2016, the last time I felt this good was when I was reading the Dark Protectors books, I was worried that the author wouldn't be able to bring that level or quality of story telling to the table again, especially with the depth of character, and general development along the way. My concerns were unfounded, this book blew them all out of the water and into the stratosphere. ARC generously provided via Netgalley, it was my pleasure to provide the above honest review.

4.25 stars---WICKED EDGE is the second installment in Rebecca Zanetti’s contemporary, adult REALM ENFORCERS paranormal, romance series-a spin of from her Dark Protectors series. This is witch/Enforcer Daire Dunne, and Felicity’s (Cee Cee) storyline. WICKED EDGE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous storylines is imparted where necessary Told from dual third person perspectives (Daire and Felicity) WICKED EDGE follows two paths: the yin and yang relationship between Felicity and Daire; the focus on the latest designer drug to hit the streets and nightclubs of Seattle, Washington. Known as Apollo, the deadly injectable solution of ‘Planekite’ renders its’ users in a state of god-like euphoria with super human strength, eventually leaving the abusers a seething mess of pyrotechnic ash. Apollo is also one of the few drugs able to destroy and kill the witches. While Daire and his brothers, Kellach and Adam, search for the people responsible. remaining undercover with the Titans of Fire MC, Daire finds himself falling for a woman who not once, but three times, drugs our hero so that she can forward her own investigation in the hopes of discovering the whereabouts of the man who destroyed her family. What ensues is the back and forth relationship between Daire, and the woman who would one day be his mate but not before almost losing Felicity to her own overwhelming need for revenge. The relationship between Daire and Felicity is one of immediate attraction but Felicity is determined to use Daire for her own ‘nefarious’ reasons. Felicity’s need to ruin and kill the man that destroyed her family, places Daire in a position to both protect and hunt for the woman who always seems to be one step ahead of the Enforcer. Their up and down, push and pull, fire and water relationship would have made a lesser man walk away without looking back-Felicity has many secrets that are slowly revealed throughout the story. But Felicity never took into account the possibility that her family would be targeted by the very person that Felicity hopes to destroy. The $ex scenes are intimate and seductive. The world building spotlights the deadly affects of Apollo; the search for the people or groups supplying the pushers; and the ongoing ‘war’ between rival biker gangs. There is plenty of action, suspense, mystery and blood-fire, explosions, plasma guns, and hand to hand combat. Like the previous storyline- WICKED RIDE-there is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including witches, vampires, shifters, and enhanced humans with latent powers. We are reintroduced to Daire’s brothers Adam and Kellach, along with Kellach’s mate Lexi; Daire’s cousin Simone- a member of the Coven of Nine witches; and Bear-the powerful shifter and president of the Grizzly MC who still has a thing for Kellach’s mate Lexi. A number of characters from Rebecca’s Dark Protector series continue to cross paths with the Realm Enforcers including demons Logan and Zane; and vampire/demon Garrett. Logan and Zane’s presence will directly affect Daire and Felicity’s relationship. WICKED RIDE is a fast paced storyline that focuses on the war against drugs, and the ongoing battle between right and wrong. The premise is entertaining and intriguing; the characters are numerous, animated and impassioned; the romance is heartwarming and energetic. Rebecca Zanetti pens another passionate series that will fasci

✦Review: Wicked Edge (Realm Enforcers Series) by Rebecca Zanetti http://wp.me/p3d0RZ-3iB Genre: Paranormal Romance Publication Date: November 10, 2015 Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ Donna Rated: 5 Stars REVIEW: I enjoyed this installment in the Realm Enforcers even better than the first. The action and intrigue was fast paced and didn’t get bogged down in unneeded explanations. I liked Daire and Cee Cee right off and his Alpha to her cunning smart woman was a perfect match. Just when I was about to get frustrated on her hidden identity – it was exposed and well worth the wait. I loved it as well as their smoking hot romance. The other characters add such a nice dimension to the whole storyline and I hope she does a book for each and every one of them. It’s a group of people that you want to be a part of and I love those kinds of books. *Review copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 1/2 Book two in Ms. Zanetti’s Realm Enforcers series follows Daire Dunne. The oldest and grumpiest (his words not mine) of the Dunne brothers. Daire has been undercover with his brothers trying to find out who is producing Apollo a drug that is deadly to both humans and witches. But while that should be Daire main focus in life his attention has just be fixated on a petite little blond with a sassy month and a pension for druging him. Cee Cee is awesome. She is meek, mild and no one would ever guess the warrior or craziness that lives in her. She is the perfect fit for Daire. Cee Cee challenges Daire every step of the way in this book. And Daire is not known for his patients :) . But I loved these two together. I love seeing how each adapted to the other in order to meet in the middle and get the job done. I loved Cee Cee’s secrets *wiggles eyebrows*. Some of these secrets were shocking and almost ended with a few less head on bodies. I am really enjoying the Realm Enforcers series and can not wait to see what and who is next. Both Adam and Simone need to go down!!!! I also want to know who, what and why the Coven Nine is targeting Simone. Makes me wonder what secrets she is hiding. Until next time Realm Enforcers!!!!

I loved this super sexy continuation of the Realm Enforcers series, which sees witch Daire meeting his match in Cee Cee, a demon who just so happens to be the last being he should get involved with! She's got all these crazy plans, most of which involve something that he has a vested interest in - the removal of planekite (and by removal, I mean blowing up the mines that are involved). Since planekite is deadly to witches and is the active ingredient in the Apollo drug that is killing humans and witches alike, Daire finds himself tasked with trying to keep up with Cee Cee and her exploits, all the while discovering that she pushes all of his buttons. Of course her scheme also involves sticking it to a demon from her past, one who was responsible for her own personal tragedy. It's up to Daire to keep Cee Cee from getting herself and him killed as she seeks her revenge. It was a lot of fun to see Daire meeting his match in feisty, pint sized Cee Cee. I loved the two of them together, the sexual chemistry between them evident from the start even though at first Daire doesn't know exactly who she is (and the significance of her identity is a biggee!). But even once he knows, he's not about to give her up. He's her protector and her confidante too, and he's everything she's been missing. I liked that she could hold her own no matter the circumstances. There is a fair amount of action in the story (not all of it precipitated by Cee Cee though she tries her best) and the story moves smoothly along at a quick pace. There are some open ended plot lines that will be ready to heat up the next installment (though each of these stories can be read as a standalone, the plot builds from one to the next though the couples in each are unique). I really enjoy the combination of paranonormal beings in this series, with demons, vampires, witches, shifters etc. all getting a chance to show who's the strongest (and learning that alliances are their best options) - not to mention the occasional human who gets swept up in all the drama. Family members play important secondary roles here, and I loved the interactions between the various factions. I can't wait to see what's coming up next! 4.5 stars.

Wicked Edge is book two in the Realm Enforcers series by Rebecca Zanetti. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by NetGalley, Kensington Books and by Rebecca Zanetti. Where I really, really liked the first book in this series, Wicked Ride, I LOVED Wicked Edge! It was non-stop from the beginning to the end and had my heart pounding out of my chest. I loved the characters and also enjoyed seeing a bit of Kell and Alexandra from book one. Daire Dunne is Kellach’s brother. Kell and Alex have gone to Ireland which leaves Daire and their other brother, Adam in Seattle. They are still impersonating members of a Motorcycle Gang to infiltrate the Titans of Fire Motorcycle Club. They are searching for the distributors of the deadly new drug, Apollo, which can kill both humans and witches. Daire and his brothers are witches, members of the Coven Nine, known as enforcers. They want to know who is bringing the mineral, Planekite which can be processed into the deadly drug, into the country. Daire is tired and wants this to be over. It is with this on his mind as he walks into the Titans club and spots the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. Maybe tonight he can just forget for awhile with a beautiful woman. But the night didn’t exactly go as he planned. She tells people her name is Cee Cee Jones. She knew Daire would come in eventually. He was her target. He has something she needs. So on the back of his motorcycle she got and went back to his penthouse. What she didn’t expect was the effect Daire’s kiss would have on her. But she had to forget that. She needs files that she knows Daire has. So she drugs him and takes what she needs. Of course Daire isn’t going to let the robbery of his files go. Cee Cee didn’t expect his tenacity in finding her. And find her he did. So begins the cat and mouse relationship between these two. The sparks are flying like crazy, chemistry enough to melt my e-reader. But Cee Cee isn’t giving up anything. She can’t let him know who, or what, she really is. Cee Cee wants revenge against the one person that ruined her and her son’s lives. Not to mention, he is responsible for much of the planekite being brought into the country. She hadn’t figured Daire Dunne into the picture. This was her fight and hers alone. But the pull towards Daire is hard to resist. “There was a danger, not quite reckless but close enough, in Daire Dune that called to her. Were they a good match? He was so complex, sweet and deadly, she wasn’t sure. It would take years, probably centuries, to even come close to understanding him. God she loved a challenge.” As I said before, the action is non-stop in this book. But more than that, the romance between Daire and Cee Cee was so wonderful. There really was such a soft side to Daire, the side that would protect those he cares about above everything else, no matter the cost to himself. Daire doesn’t believe in fate but he really has to wonder if it could have been fate that brought them together. “You’re a dangerous woman.” “That’s what I’ve been trying to tell you.” I am also very intrigued with the bear shifters over at the Grizzly MC. They are allies of the Dunne’s and I wonder if they might eventually get a book or series of their own? I would DEFINITELY be on board with that! This book is full from the start to the finish with sigh worthy sexy times, nail biting action and just all around awesomeness.

When Cee Cee and Daire meet their lives become turbulent, action-packed, passion filled and never the same again. Cee Cee is set on revenge and Daire is drawn into the intrigue. There are Demons, shapeshifters, witches, and more with teleporting, fights, drugs, political maneuvering, back stabbing and plenty of steamy interaction. This is a story with strong male and female main characters that don’t give an inch as they move toward an ultimate understanding. This book was a great continuation of the Realm Enforcers series and I look forward to finding out what characters will have their story told in book three! Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the copy of this book to read and review.
