Mini-Review: Wicked Edge (Realm Enforcers #2)

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...
Themes: Vampires, Demons, Witches, Paranormal
Rating: 4.5 stars
Heat Rating: 
 The world of the Dark Protectors continues to expand as we learn more and more about the evils plaguing the witches and their allies while falling in love with more and more Dunne family members.  This spin-off series keeps me coming back, proving to be as entertaining and sensual as the original series.  The witches have their own unique issues coming to a head, but for sure their allies continue to be involved in keeping them safe and causing them drama.  Those fans of the Dark protectors’ series will be surprised by Cee Cee's intensity and will find Daire's relationship with her beyond hilarious.  Though there is a lot of darkness and anger in this series, Zanetti's writing greatness and her ability to make her characters comes to life keeps the story from becoming depressing.  Daire is witty and sarcastic while also being deadly and sensual; his interactions with Cee Cee as they find outrageous obstacles in their path show true heart while being wonderfully sweet and sexy.  Cee Cee on the other hand has got some real issues with her past it is time to come to terms with, despite her determination to accomplish her mission she finds herself falling for the crazy and enchanting witch that she used to further her goals.  The way that Cee Cee and Daire keep finding themselves in impossible situations and always seem to find their way out, while keeping one another safe and also kicking serious ass and taking down their enemies makes the story lively for sure.  They each use their skills to the best of their abilities, but prove that coming together to form a team is the best way to really win their battles.  For new readers I will promise you enjoy this story all on its own, but can guarantee that if you take the time to go back and read the previous stories you will fall in love with this series like so many of us have. I'm looking forward to whoever's story comes next and learning where the world of the Allies will be going next.
