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. Unfor

Yeah, what a ride. *sarcasm*

Good grief. While the heroine is a human being, the hero is the immortal creature. And I don't care if it's PNR or not because that kind of writing is a big fat no, at least to me.

Wicked Ride is the 1st book in the Realm Enforcers series. The Realm Enforcers series is a spin off to one of my all time favorite series Dark Protectors. Where Dark Protectors focuses more on the vampire part of the paranormal world, Realm Enforcers focuses on the witch part. So all the witches we met and fell in love with in Dark Protectors get their stories. Wicked

Wicked Ride is book one in the Realm Enforcers series by Rebecca Zanetti. This is my first ever Rebecca Zanetti book. I’ve been wanting to try one of her books forever and I can tell you that after one book, I am a fan.

Wicked Ride was a somewhat entertaining read overall. It was definitely hot in places, but it wasn’t what I expected or hoped for when I picked it up. That’s partially my own fault because I didn’t read the book description carefully enough to put together that it was a paranormal romance. I thought I was picking up a motorcycle club romance à la Joanna Wylde or Kristen Ashley. To be fair the cover does make you think that, right? The motorcycle club aspect is a very minor part, just a setting r ...more

ARC was generously provided by the publisher via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is a pretty strong start to a new series Realm Enforcers, a spin-off from Dark protectors  series. In short, it's kind of a mixture of motorcycle gangs with cops, magic and paranormal creatures thrown in. What's not to like about that?

After two decades of fighting, the paranormal world has reached peace with it's different races but a new threat is on the horizon.

This one caught me by surprise. Mainly because how much I really liked it but also because I missed the subtle hint in the blurb that this is actually a PNR read, and I haven't read her other series that is connected to this one so I didn't catch it at all. I went into it thinking it was just a normal MC book lol. Luckily the otherworldly stuff if thrown at you pretty much right away and when I reread the blurb I realized where the story was going to take me. I thought Rebecca Zanetti

What do you get when a smart, independent but human police officer meets a sexy, alpha-male, witch enforcer? A literally and figuratively scorching hot, thrilling read that burned through the pages.

This one just didn't ring my chimes. I found the plot to be boring and the heroine Alex just got on my nerves. I'm not much of a fan of female cops as lead characters because they are invariably obnoxious and over the top, which was definitely the case here. Her constant refrain throughout the first half of the book was "I'm a cop". Well, if you have to keep saying it, it sounds like you're trying to convince yourself as much as anyone else. It just got irritating.

I love Ms. Zanetti, especially her Sin Brothers series, so I requested this one. It did not disappoint at all. I'm guessing this is a spin-off from her Dark Protectors series, but since I've never read them I'm not sure.

LOVED Kell and his brothers and Bear, so many smokin' hawt guys in one place is not fair. I can't wait to read their stories. Lex was no slacker herself. She never backed down and gave Kell a lot of grief in not obeying his orders, loved it.

Gritty, in your face action. Worlds that cross over and bleed into each other and a cop who has been beaten by life, upbringing and crime. Alexandra Monealle needs a reprieve, a protector, and a bloody break. She’s a tough no-nonsense kind of woman that didn’t expect to fall for the Irish accent of a MC member. A known crime infested MC member.

Kellach and Alexandra's Story:

I love that Rebecca Zanetti continued a new series about the Realm Enforcers. We first learned about them in the Dark Protector series. You do not have to read those first to enjoy this series.

I've been looking forward to Kel's story ever since he was in Moira and Connors book and he didn't disappoint. I loved his character and how fiercely he protected Lexi.

I hate to admit it, but I wasn't as big of a fan of Alexandra. She is a human cop and no matter how much sh

I expect some things from a Rebecca Zanetti book. Scorching hot chemistry, alpha males, strong and intelligent heroines, engaging supporting characters, lots of action both in and out of the bedroom. Wicked ride gave me all of that, except one thing. The heroine was not what I was expecting.

I loved the plot of this book. An unknown bad guy is developing a drug that will kill witches and temporarily give humans powers that usually only the immortals can wield and Seattle is the testing ground. Hu

Rebecca Zanetti's paranormals just aren't for me it seems. Though I do think we've come a long way since my first was a one star.
That being said, the only reason I read this was cause my best friend loves it and hell, who else can you trust?
So even though initially I wanted to read the next book or more accurately Daire's book, I don't think I'll be continuing cause while this wasn't bad, both MCs got on my nerves and I don't want that to happen with Daire cause right now I really like him. But

****Some of this review could be considered spoiler-ish****

With an interesting paranormal world inhabited by demons, vampires and witches, combined with the gritty MC world and a police drama, Wicked Ride had the potential to be a unique blend of all three genres. Unfortunately, a number of issues kept it from being the story that I hoped it would be.

That’s not to say that Wicked Ride wasn’t a good book. The idea was fantastic. A dr

This is the first book in the Realm Enforcers series, and once again Rebecca Zanetti takes us on a wild romantic ride with lots of action, excitement and awesome paranormal badassery.

This is a spin-off of the Dark Protectors series. It’s set in the same world, with some character crossovers, and though I think it would be more meaningful to have read the Dark Protectors books first to give you a thorough understanding of the world and those who inhabit it, I think there is enough explana

When the story begins, Alexandra, a Seattle cop, is on the hunt for Apollo, a drug that can make you feel like a god, at least until your internal organs incinerate. She meets Kell, a huge biker who is, of course, more than he seems on the outside. And then romance happens.

Intriguing setup : Besides this obviously established ‘verse of vampires, witches and shifters (oh my), the explanation for “witchcraft” was a novel one and certainly got my attention. The overarching storyline of a drug call
