If you love the Dark Protectors, these wicked hot Realm Enforcers are for you!
As she hunts for a drug lord killing her fellow witches, all Tessa Lansa’s instincts point to the Grizzly motorcycle club. That might be because their leader, Bear, is the strong, silent shifter type: warm brown eyes and more muscle and alpha male than any woman can ignore. Which makes Tessa’s plan to seduce and betray him all the more dangerous . . .
Bear doesn’t trust the curvy, blue-eyed witch. But Tessa can heal the injuries that sap his strength. And since he can’t stop thinking of her lush body and teasing smile, her plan to mate him to reclaim her own power is highly tempting. Just one problem. Once a desire this wild is loose, no one will ever control it .
WICKED BITE is a pretty interesting paranormal romance with an intense central romance and a fun plot with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing at just what is going on. Realm Enforcers is one of those book series that I swear up and down that I've read some of at some point. But after diving into this story at a loss as to who is who I might have been mistaken. Luckily you don't need to have read the previous four books to enjoy WICKED BITE. Reading so many romances I tend to assume I get where the plot is going but WICKED BITE is pretty tricky by taking a hard right and messing with my concept of the status quo! The pacing is great, there are brilliant fight sequences, and enough exposition to get a general understanding of what went on in the previous books.
On the romance front, there are some pretty steam sex scenes and I love a good battle of the wits between main characters. While Bear's name is a bit on point with him being a bear shifter, I enjoyed his back story of being injured due to changing into a dragon at some point in the previous book. I was saddened to find out that he could not change into a hybrid bear-dragon shifter or breath fire in bear form. Tessa is a fun prim yet sassy foil to Bear's wild, gruff personality. I enjoyed seeing Bear and Nessa slowly open up to each other and finally share their secrets which were causing some major issues for their relationship and my ability to not be annoyed at people who don't explain their motivations (and who they are) clearly in the first place.
WICKED BITE is a wickedly exciting and thrilling read with a sizzling romance at its core. I will now be going to find the other books in this series!Series Titles:
1. Wicked Ride
2. Wicked Edge
3. Wicked Burn
4. Wicked Kiss
Try the Dark Protectors series, which the Realm Enforcers is a spin-off of.
