Review: Aden, Vampires in America 7
Aden, Vampires in America Book 7 by D B Reynolds
She was seeking revenge. What she found was a vampire who swept her into the darkest depths of passion.
Chicago, Illinois . . . the windy city. Home to football greats, dinosaurs named Sue, and, when the sun goes down . . . powerful vampires battling for the right to rule the city and beyond.
Born into slavery, Aden is one of the most powerful vampires in North America, waging war on others of his kind in a struggle to become the next Lord of the Midwest. But in the midst of the deadliest fight of his long life, the ghosts of his past have come back to haunt him. Slavery still exists, and Aden is hellbent on destroying it and the vampires who profit from it.
Sidonie Reid is an investigative reporter in pursuit of the biggest story of her career, until that story costs the life of a friend and Sid realizes she has to do much more than write about it. Intent on bringing down the vampires and their slave network, Sid gains entry to the highest levels of vampire society, where she finds herself confronting the raw sexuality that is Aden.
Caught up in a dark passion that neither can resist, Aden and Sidonie join forces, determined to defeat the old regime and everything it stands for. The dangers are beyond calculation, but the ultimate reward is worth the risk. If they survive . . .

Aden is book 7 in the Vampires in America Series but the book does make sense as a stand alone. Let me just say, D.B. Reynolds is a vampire genius. This book was incredibly sexy and steaming. The descriptions and imagery were so detailed which really gave the novel its hotness. The story was very well developed and the characters were very well rounded and complete. I really loved that Aden's back story was given to give a look into how he became the vampire he is. It was also such a different type of back story than I'm used to.
Sid had an amazing, fiery attitude but I feel she wasn't challenging enough for Aden. She gave into him and his charm far too easily.
Aden hinted at some BDSM elements but none came into play so I was a tad disappointed there. That doesn't make any of the sex scenes any less hot. They are all incredible!
I wasn't clear if the general human population knew about vampires. At times it seemed like they did and at others it was hinted that they were clueless. They weren't that important to the story but it helps to figure out the world the writer is putting me in.
Most of the time I was confused to how Aden's power worked but thankfully his powers are witnessed through Sid's eyes which gave me a better understanding of what I was supposed to be envisioning.
Overall, the book is an amazing read and oh so hot! I definetely recommend the book for those who love vampires and sex.
