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…

My Review

Summary

Alexandra Monzelle, is a police cop and is as tough as they come. With a killing drug that kills the victim from inside out, Alexa is determined to get it off the streets. She uses every weapon at her disposal even if that means a short dress and killer heels. But none of her training or experience could have prepared her for Kallach Dunne. Kallach is in Seattle undercover, in a biker club to take KT off the streets because this is just the beginning. If he doesn’t stop it, this drug will be used to kill his people. He must do everything iin his power to stop it. Kallach is a powerful witch, but he is drawn to Alexandra from the beginning. With her sass and independent streak a mile wide…he just wants more of her even if she wants him arrested more often than not. But soon their relationship will take a turn when the unexpected happens, and the danger escalates and Alexandra will have to trust Kallach if she hopes to survive the coming tide.

Plot and Story Line

Wicked Ride is the first installment of Zanetti’s latest series. This is also tied with the Dark Protector series. So if you loved that series than you will have a ball of fun and giggles with Wicked Ride. I had this book sitting on my e-book shelf for the longest time, and I decided I definitely needed to pick it up and am thrilled that I did. This was an amazing story and I just couldn’t get enough.

Both of the main characters are what really make this story golden. They are both protectors and fighters for their people. So despite the fact that at first they seem to be on opposite ends, they really end up being quite perfect for each other in those unique ways. And boy do they like to fight each other.

“You like to play with fire, Alexandra?”

Quite honestly, Alexandra knocked my socks off and I loved every minute of her (for the most part). She is kick ass and boy does she know how to fight, but she also has a chip on her shoulder. Her father was a drug dealer and abused their mother and could care less about his own kids. Her mother has been in medical care. Both Alexandra and her sister Tori have had to find their own ways of dealing with their pasts. Alexandra fights bad guys to deal with it. But I will say she tends to go a bit overboard and overreacts in huge ways.

”You leap to conclusions faster than a Blue Hare during mating season.”

I mean really, Kellach is one patient Irishman. I loved him even more for it though. He is sexy and fun and lighthearted when he needs to be. There is quite a lot going on that I don’t want to reveal too much in this story. But I will say, that this drug is definitely a bad one. So we see how desperate people are to get this off the streets. The side characters were such fun and added a sense of lightheartedness to a danger-filled plot. We have Kellach’s two brothers. Then we have Alexandra’s sister and her partner. And each character was unique and added a balance to the story that was needed and heartfelt at times. I just couldn’t get enough of Wicked Ride and am so excited for the next book.

“I like you too.” She blew out air. “I trust you, Kellach Dunne. I’m keeping you.”

  • Okay I may have to give this one another attempt. I did not like the heroine at all and put it down back in March and then never went back even though I was gonna at some point. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it! Gives me courage to try again 😀

      oh that’s too bad!! I will admit there were moments I felt she was over the top ..especially since I have issues with characters leaping to conclusions without the facts but the hero made up for it hehe
