Publisher's Summary

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....

A Wonderfully Wicked Read!

Would you listen to Wicked Ride again? Why?

Yes, I would listed to Wicked Ride again. I love the worlds Rebecca Zanetti creates. She also has a wonderful knack for writing deliciously alpha heroes. Her heroes always tend to come off overbearing and overprotective but at the same time are able to support their heroines' goals and ambitions.

What other book might you compare Wicked Ride to and why?

This series, The Realm Enforcers, is a spin off series to the Dark Protectors by Rebecca Zanetti. In the Dark Protectors Series, the alpha heroes were vampires. The first book is Fated. I also recommend Zanetti's Sin Brothers Series. It is more of a contemporary romance or romantic suspense series. The first book in the series is Forgoten Sins. Both series are available on Audible. I have listed to both and I highly recommend them.

Which character – as performed by Brock Thompson – was your favorite?

I loved (hero's) Kellach's Irish Brogue.

Any additional comments?

Warning: this is NOT a MC (motorcycle club) romance book. This is a PARANORMAL ROMANCE. The characters in this book are undercover in a motercycle club to search for the dealer of a deadly drug killing witches. Please do not read if you are looking for a mc romance. This book is filled with action and suspense. It has lots of steamy romance. The hero is alphaliciously hot! I highly recommend it!!! The hero in this particular book is a humorous, sexy witch. The heroine is a human detective. When the two meet, heat combusts. This book received four stars instead of five because I found the heroine's resistance to trust the hero irritating.

Sassy, Sexy, Wild!

Any additional comments?

I loved this. It's a great "good guy in bad boy clothes" kind of story where opposites attract, old and modern. I just wish it had a bit fewer sex scenes and more action. Sure, it's a romance, so expect at least a few of those, but it seemed like every 3rd scene turns lusty. Oh well. This is, so far, the only series I've decided to continue with the sequel (even before hearing the free preview chapter of Book 2).

My favorite quote in the whole book is:
"That Irish brogue should be bottled up and sold to lonely women everywhere." Brilliant!

Brock Thompson's performance is straightforward, with just a hint of sarcasm at times, which I felt fit the story's diction well. He has just the right amount of emotion and inflection. Voices are distinct and easily differentiated, and the Dublin brogue is well-done. There were no issues with production.

I am also a narrator. I purchased this audiobook with a credit.

Good story but the narrator mispronunciations!

Any additional comments?

This book begins the "Realm Enforcers" series and set in "The Dark Protectors" world. It's a continuation that focuses mainly on the male witches. I LOVED the story - a good story is to be expected from Rebecca Zanetti.

Narration: I don't think it was necessary to change to narrator because, consistent with "The Dark Protectors" series, it is told from both the female and male perspective. However, I understand the change might be necessary. My one complaint - the narrator's pronunciation of certain names!!! I'm not certain which pronunciation is correct, but it should be consistent with the "The Dark Protectors."

For example, Karen White (narrator of "The Dark Protector" series) pronounces the King's name as "Dage" (rhymes with sage and as it's written). Brock Thompson pronounces it as "Daga" (rhymes with saga). Karen pronounces Karys as "cares." Brock says "caris." Karen pronounces Veis as "vice." Brock says "vay-is."

Again, the story is GOOD! But the mispronunciation is detracting.

Biker Witches and Demons!

Love the narrator of this series and the overall premise is good. HOWEVER, these are NOT stand-alone novels, so you need to read all of them to get to the conclusion of the main story line.

I like some steamy romance in my novels, but the "love" scenes in these books were just raunchy. Also, this author uses the same same sex scenes over and over again. Each book has a sex scene in the rain, up against a wall or tree and all other scenes are equally repetitive. Why bother?

Unfortunately, the trend towards mommy porn has taken over the chick lit market in the last few years. Some of these authors really need to learn how a write a good love scene, not just explicit F*** scenes.

Great spin of of Dark protectors series!

If you love the Dark protectors series you will love hearing a few side characters finding their mates with a sexy MC twist! The only thing I took issue with is the narrator gives some characters Irish accents when they shouldn't have them and pronounce names from original series incorrectly. (Like Garrett the son of the main characters in the first installment of Dark protectors. His mom is American and in the original series it was even mentioned his dad "lost his accent centuries ago" so there Is no way their son has a heavy Irish accent as in this book) also the King of the Realms name sounds completely different here then original series.
It doesn't affect this series but it bothers me lol
Other then that I love to see what some of my fave smaller characters are up to!!

Irritating

I understand that Lex is a detective... but her constant mistrust of her mate was very tiring and extremely annoying... she has some major hang ups... which considering who her father was its understandable but nonetheless I rolled my eyes dozens of times because of Lex

Awesome Spinoff

For those of you who loved Rebecca Zanetti's Dark Protectors series you're going to love this series as well. Wicked Ride is book 1 of the Realms Enforcers series and it's packed full of hot Alpha Males, hot loving sex, totally killer kills and action packed.

Kellach Dunne and Alexandria Monzelle have amazing chemistry from the start and it continues to shine throughout the book. Kell is a warrior who is undercover on a mission to rid the world of a new drug named Apollo that was specially formulated, unknown to humans, to kill witches. Lex is a cop who has daddy issues. Together these two are unstoppable and fighting they are explosive.

Really good

Any additional comments?

It must have been good, cause I got it on sale and ended up getting the next book in the series right away. Witches, Vampires, Demons, this book has it all and they all fit nicely into what we know about our current world. I like the forbidden love theme that runs through this series. I didn't read the previous series and I don't think it will stop you from enjoying this.I'm not sure I'll go on to the next book--at least not right away. I can see it getting repetitive, but maybe in a month or so I'll try another.
