I was able to obtain this arc through ImaJinn Books via Netgalley. When I was able to get this one, I could hardly wait to read it. Even though its the seventh installment in the series, I found Aden to be a sexy paranormal romance that held my attention from page one. The story begins when Sidonie is desperate to get her story out about slavery. So she meets up with a powerful vampire, Aden, who is close to gaining the power of the Midwest. Sidonie doesn't trust Aden further than she can throw him, but after meeting him she knows she will have to watch carefully, because he could be very dangerous, not physically but emotionally. Sidonie is determined to prove how horrid slavery is and its spreading like wildfire. If only she only knew how Aden feels toward slavery of any form. Aden was once a slave before he became a vampire, and he knows horrific truth of it all. When Aden first meets the redhead, he doesn't want anything more than a sexual nature, however when Sidonie's life is threatened and they are thrown into a war zone, Aden knows that he will do everything to save her even at the cost of losing everything he has worked for.
I loved the style of the story of Aden. Aden is a powerful alpha male that is for sure, and doesn't let anyone stand in his way. That is until Sidonie arrives upon the scene. He has many alpha characteristics, and comes off way strong, but I love how he doesn't let Sid have her way, instead he practically backs her into a corner. Sidonie isn't used to not getting her way, so when she meets Aden every good intention is thrown out the window every time he touches her and inflames the passion that has been hiding beneath the surface. The relationship between Aden and Sidonie is quite steamy at times( a warning that it does have a bit of a BDSM element) , but I also loved how the author put in the aspect of softer side to the relationship. There is quite a bit of a danger and intrigue element that is put into play in the plot, that only strengthened the tone of the story.
Overall I fell in love with Aden. This is the first book that I have read from this author. And until I came across this book the first time I heard of this author. I read the latest book in the series, so I still need to get my hands on the other six. Very excited to read those installments and see if they are just as good as this title was. A thrilling tale of paranormal vampires, sizzling desire, and some intense action packed story. A WINNER!!
