Daire Dunne is more than ready to take a quick break from his duties as a Coven Nine Enforcer. When he spots a sexy blonde across a Titan’s of Fire party, it’s not long before she’s on the back of his Harley on the fast track to his apartment. Unfortunately, one overheated kiss in, the woman drugs Daire and steals valuable files that can’t fall into enemy hands. The second he comes to, the hunt is on...
Now that Cee Cee has the information to take down an enemy that destroyed her family, she can implement her perfect plan for revenge. Nothing will stop her, not even a shockingly sexy enforcer barging into her life. Not even the spectacular, fire-branding sex engulfing them. But if Daire ever figures out who her family really is, all bets are off...
At the end of my review for Wicked Ride I stated that “I’m hooked! Bring on the next in the series!” so it’s no surprise that as soon as I saw Wicked Edge was available on NG that I immediately clicked that request button and let me tell you Ms. Zanetti does not disappoint! Wicked Edge grabbed hold of me from the very beginning and propelled me down the rabbit hole into the sexy, dangerous and intriguing world of the Realm Enforcers.
I absolutely adored Daire and CeeCee. Daire is every bit the badass Enforcer and yet he has little quirks that I thought were quite adorable, especially when he gets grouchy when others don’t fall in line with his way of thinking. He’s got that total alpha-panty melting thing going on as well as being a closet sweetheart and then there’s that little rebellious streak he has which definitely keeps people on their toes around him.
CeeCee, well to say that woman has a ton of surprises up her sleeve is an understatement, but you’ll have to read the book to get to the juiciest one of them all. She embodies the saying “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.” She is all soft and feminine on the outside but underneath the woman is fierce and slightly crazy with a few insecurites, but still fierce. She’s sweet, sexy and her determination to go through with her plan is highly commendable.
Daire and CeeCee work so well together in so many ways, well after they got past a few things, like CeeCee drugging him, though you have to applaud the woman for getting it done. The sexual chemistry between them is explosive, but as their unorthodox courtship progresses and the trust finally starts to grow between them, you find that they see things in a very similar light and do understand, and love, what lies underneath.
The writing was spot on, not that it’s a surprise in anyway, and I enjoyed how CeeCee’s revenge was woven into the fabric of the Apollo/planekite storyline and through it were given answers to some of what was going on while leaving enough teasers to keep things interesting. But of course I loved catching up with rest of the gang. We get a little time with Kell and Lex, and Lex is still a badass (LOVE her). There a little something going on with Adam and I hope we get more on that situation. Simone, if Adam has a little something going on, she has a lot going on, add in a Nikolaj and I’m totally waiting for the fireworks to go off. I still want my own Logan and Garrett, though the food thing may have to be negotiated and then there is Bear. God, I do love that shifter and one of my favorite lines of the book is about him “Weren’t most bears a honey pot away from insanity?”
The Bottom Line: A fun, sexy, action packed ride and the wait until the next book is too long.
