Aria's father took something from Matthew so he takes something from her father. Her.
Matthew and Aria aren't meant to be together. They come from opposite sides almost. Enemies. But, love and hate, fear and lust are like two sides of the coin. Aria has no reason to trust anything Matthew says, but the same could be said about her father. Difference between the two is she somewhat admires Matthew. Definitely admires what he can do to her.
Matthew should hate her by her blood alone. Her father stole from him so he takes her for revenge. Some things are hardwired into Matthew and protecting women is one of them. While he may not want to want her, he does. That doesn't change his mind that she's a means to an end.
While they aren't supposed to be, they're meant to be. You can't change what you want. Who you want. But Matthew is a business man and he has his own way. Ruthless in almost everything. But her father being who he is, they can't be anything to the other and all things end. But as we've learned from these Spiked Roses guys, things hardly turn out how you first expected them to. And this is one connection you can't break.
1. Secondary character, Tennessee Charles’ name changes in ch.6 to Tennessee Williams (eye roll).
2. Matthew has an epiphany and realizes Aria’s a virgin, yet immediately AFTER they do the deed he says “I didn’t realize you were a virgin”, (Huh?) and then he apologizes and says again, “If I had known you were a virgin.....”. How old is he anyway? 16? (SMH)
3. Editing issues and misspelled words like stirring (steering) wheel...which I can put up with, but by now I’m just cranky.
4. Matthew claims his kidnapping Aria is a spontaneous, unplanned action. So why is he prepared with an array of clothes and hygiene products for her?
5. Aria says in ch 8: “The feel of submission & allowing Matthew to dominate was by far the most powerful, erotic feeling I’d experienced “. (Honey, you’re a virgin!!. Safe to say it’s the ONLY powerful and erotic feeling you’ve experienced...).
6. Ch 15- Aria catches the tip of Matthew’s tongue between her teeth, her way of warning him to stop kissing her. He says (with her biting his tongue, lol...), he says, “I wouldn’t do that if I were you. That kind of thing will get you flipped right back on your stomach...”, (he says this while he goes for his belt). Aria releases his tongue immediately. HOW DOES ONE TALK WHEN THEIR TONGUE IS BEING BIT BY SOMEONE ELSE? (I’m really crackin’ up now).
7. Here’s a doozy..”The deep tips of her toes groaned that she gifted me with as I did that...”(gave up trying to figure that out..)
Anyway, a rushed, poorly written mafia story with no mafia, no mean guys and no drama. None. Mafia kingpin dad comes across as a classless buffoon, flaunting gaudy finery. Matthew is supposed to be this tough, powerful badass in control, but is more like an immature dolt, acting without thinking. It became apparent that the story was merely a vehicle to move between sex scenes.
Matthew found Aria Costa watching people at the party. He kidnapped her from the party and took her to his home in Colorado. Matthew likes to punish Aria by using his leather belt when she doesn't submit to him. Aria is a stubborn girl. They spend a lot of time together. Will Matthew be ready to trade Aria for his property ? Is Aria ready to go back to her father ? I was given an arc of this book and this is my own personal opinion. 💖🐧💋

The writing is really good, she's got a distinctive style and the sex scenes were really hot. That being said, Matthew's attitude and the dramatics between him and Aria had me rolling my eyes so hard. He has this plan to kidnap her and use her against his enemy, her father. But he's hot-headed and while he plans some parts meticulously he really doesn't think things through. Like how that is supposed to make her father return things he stole when he doesn't actually care that much about his daughter beyond being a piece of property.
The other thing that I found stomach turning was Matthew treating Aria like a whore - until he finds out she's a virgin and he says to himself that if he had known he would have done blah blah blah and "kept her forever". What? This trope of a woman being worthy of nice treatment only when her hymen is intact is off-putting and kind of offensive. Made it hard to read the rest of the book.
