This is the first time ive read this author and it definitely will not be the last as I didnt want nico and elena's story to end I wanted to keep reading about their love for each other and when we found out why elena had ran away and was wearing the cheap ring my heart was in my throat and tears in my eyes.
This is a really great read with great 3 dimensional characters that could walk off the page and not just nico and elenas characters were great it was all of the characters thrown in that made the story so good, i could visualise everything that was written.
The only I have with this book is that more than half of the story was in elenas POV and I would have loved to read more of nicos POV during the first half of the book to read his burning desire for elena when he was engaged to her sister. I still really enjoyed this story and will reread it again many times
I just found the next author for my binge reading spree, because this book was incredible! It was so well written, phenomenal characters, and the plot was amazing; so captivating and unique, definitely not what I was expecting when I read the blurb. I really couldn't put the book down (have a crick in my neck from sitting so long but it was totally worth it).
The chemistry and sexual tension between Elena and Nico was just *fansself*. So hot and intense. I loved Nico's character like crazy, a new book boyfriend favourite I have to say, he was so unapologetic about his on display darkness, alpha, possessive and just pretty much perfect. Elena was a great heroine as well, stuck in a mafia world and known as the Sweet Abelli she feels trapped. She was gentle and sweet but also hid a firecracker underneath it all that came out more as the book progressed (with Nico's coaxing). I also have to say that they as characters were so well written, they were three dimensional and had depth to them, and were honestly just so enthralling to read about.
It bears mentioning again how incredible the writing was. Honestly just phenomenal, the style, the progression of the story, the wit and banter/ humour, so so wonderful. I cannot wait to dive into the next made series and just honestly anything this author publishes.
Elena Abelli is the daughter of Salvatore Abelli a big crime boss in the united states nicknamed Sweet Abelli on account of her beauty and biddable nature she knows her future is out of her hands and that she lives by different rules to other young girls.
A bid for independence six months prior ended badly and Elena is still living with the stain on her reputation.
Nicolas Russo is the Don of one of the five families in New York contracted into marriage with Elena’s younger sister to cement their alliance Elena is just glad it’s not her on the marriage block yet.
From the start, these two definitely rub each other up the wrong way, both have prior assumptions about what they think the other is Nico thinks Elena shallow and superficial her head turned by all the attention she gets whilst Elena feels that Nico is a rude and arrogant man which unsurprisingly he actually is.
Nico is surprised that the sweet biddable Elena has claws and finds himself instantly drawn and fascinated with her.
His new fiancé Adriana pales in comparison and he also has no great interest in her actually finding her a bit weird.
A series of encounters at family gatherings dial up the tension gradually here until finally things are brought to an explosive head.
This is slow burn and nothing physically happens between these two until there in a position to act upon their chemistry.
There’s inappropriate talk and Innuendos and obvious interest but it’s basically PG.
That is until Nico going above and beyond to secure his newest obsession right where he wants her or actually doesn’t but can’t seem to help himself where she’s concerned.
The uncertainty about how they feel towards each other is carried on here right until the final pages.
A series of miscommunications standing between this couple because of a lack of transparency.
This is dual POV and very well written I did like Elena more than Nico who I did find somewhat abrasive at times but I was invested in the overall outcome.
The slow burn was done well I would maybe have liked a bit more communication on both sides and also apologies I really think Nico should have apologised about the incident with his cook and maid that just isn’t done and was just about him scoring points and hurting Elena acting on emotion and just being spiteful if the shoe was on the other foot, well he wouldn’t have taken it so well I’m sure.
Even though this is described as a forbidden romance it didn’t really feel that way to me as both Nico and Adriana had no emotional feelings towards each other and don’t even like each other that much.
This really did take the sting out of it and made it a bit of a non-issue.
This was definitely a hit and I will be picking up more of this authors work in the future.
I’m so glad I started this series because The Sweetest Oblivion is one of the best mafia books I have read. The writing was great and the characters were refreshing. Despite the arranged marriage being a popular trope in books, The Sweetest Oblivion felt different and authentic.
Elena felt different from the other women I sometimes read in this genre. Not that I have a problem with them, but Elena shone out. She was sweet and gentle, but still stood up for herself and went after what she wanted. It was a good balance. I loved Nico too. He was brutal and possessive but he was so soft for Elena and treated her so well. Their chemistry was electric and they were so hot together.
The family scenes were some of my favourite. They were chaotic and sometimes brutal but also funny. I also liked that the mafia business stayed present in the book, even though the story focused on Nico and Elena. I enjoy reading about those parts too so I was glad it wasn’t forgotten.
The side characters were intriguing (my baby, Gianna) and I’m curious to learn more about them. I actually loved Adriana and some of her scenes made me laugh so hard. I hope we get to see more of her.
Overall, a great read and one of the best mafia series.
