Wicked Edge (Realm Enforcers #2)
by Rebecca Zanetti
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...
I've had this ARC sitting on my kindle for months now and I honestly don't even have an excuse as to why it's taken me so long to read it. I mean, I loved the first book in this series and couldn't wait to dive back in as soon as I was done with it. Then I got this ARC and for some reason I was hesitant. Anyway, I finally sat down with this one yesterday and I'm kicking myself for not reading it sooner!
Talk about a wild ride! There was so much action and danger in Wicked Edge that I was honestly worried one of the main characters wasn't gonna make it. Every time they turned around one of them was getting shot or attacked or tranquilized, in Daire's case, and I was just waiting for someone to get an injury they couldn't come back from. Luckily, since this is a paranormal read that wasn't an issue but it definitely caused a few mini heart attacks while I was reading.
So what's it all about? If you read the first book then you know that Daire and his brothers are undercover in the Titan's of Fire Motorcycle Club to figure out where this new drug, Apollo, is coming from and to get it off the streets. It's at a Titan's party that Daire spots Cee Cee and things take off pretty quickly from there.
Cee Cee has lived a very sheltered life and is finally in a place where she can act out her revenge on someone that wronged her in the past. I don't want to get into too many details, as it would be too spoilery, in my opinion, but let's just say that Cee Cee is definitely not who I was expecting her to be. She's totally badass and not afraid to fight to the death to get her vengeance and she definitely crosses Daire too many times throughout the book.
Luckily, Daire develops a soft spot for the little demon and learns how to work with her instead of against her. These two were definitely quite the pair. Cee Cee might be a little damaged, and Daire might be a little too surly, but there's no doubt as to the love that develops between them as they fight the baddies and try to keep each other safe. Not to mention the smoking hot sexy times between the two... Whew!
All in all this was a great read, and while I didn't quite love it as much as I loved Wicked Ride, the first book in the series, I'm glad that I stopped putting it off. And I'll definitely be continuing on with the series to see everyone else get the HEA's they deserve.
