Love, Intrigue, Desire & Passion: My review of ‘The Sweetest Oblivion’!

Hey there, my fellow book revelers!😉

Today, I’m spilling the tea on a literary sensation that’s been causing quite the buzz online. And trust me, you won’t want to miss out on this one! 😍 Once in a while, you stumble upon a book that feels like a juicy secret you just can’t keep to yourself. Well, my friends, let me introduce you to “The Sweetest Oblivion” – a total game-changer that swept me off my feet with its addicting plot, seductive vibes, and enough sexual tension to make your heart race! 💖.


This book has dark romance themes; if you do not like reading such genres, I would suggest not reading it.


She’s a romantic at heart, living in the most unromantic of worlds… Nicknamed Sweet Abelli for her docile nature, Elena smiles on cue and has a charming response for everything. She’s the favored daughter, the perfect mafia principessa… or was. Now, all she can see in the mirror’s reflection is blood staining her hands like crimson paint.They say first impressions are everything . . .In the murky waters of New York’s underworld, Elena’s sister is arranged to marry Nicolas Russo. A Made Man, a boss, a cheat—even measured against mafia standards. His reputation stretches far and wide and is darker than his black suits and ties. After his and Elena’s first encounter ends with an accidental glare on her part, she realizes he’s just as rude as he is handsome. She doesn’t like the man or anything he stands for, though that doesn’t stop her heart from pattering like rain against glass when he’s near, nor the shiver that ghosts down her spine at the sound of his voice.And he’s always near. Telling her what to do. Making her feel hotter than any future brother-in-law should. Elena may be the Sweet Abelli on the outside, but she’s beginning to learn she has a taste for the darkness, for rough hands, cigarettes, and whiskey-colored eyes. Having already escaped one scandal, however, she can hardly afford to be swept up in another. Besides, even if he were hers, everyone knows you don’t fall in love with a Made Man… right?

The Sweetest Oblivion, written by the fabulous Danielle Lori, this baby kicks off the Made Series in style. Meet our main gal, Elena Abelli, your modern-day princess smack dab in the heart of the mafia world. Elena’s story gets spicy when a past indiscretion leads her little sis engaged to none other than Nicholas Russo, aka Nico – the bad boy of the mafia scene. Talk about a wild ride, am I right?😁 Elena’s journey from a people-pleaser to a fearless pursuit of her desires had me cheering her on. At the same time, Nico’s dangerous yet irresistible vibe kept me hooked. I couldn’t put the book down. Their chemistry? Off the charts.🚀 Seriously, sparks fly every time they’re in the same room and the sexual tension? Whew, it’s enough to make you blush just reading about it.🥰😊 But it’s not all rainbows and butterflies. These two have their fair share of challenges to overcome, with the dark side of the mafia lurking around every corner. But don’t worry, it’s not all doom and gloom! Alongside Elena and Nico, you’ve got a whole cast of characters adding color and depth to their world, making every twist and turn more thrilling.✨🎇🌟

And as Elena and Nico’s love story unfolds, it becomes more than just physical attraction – it’s about finding yourself and rebelling against the hand you’ve been dealt. This book is a testament to the magic of storytelling, whisking us away on a literary adventure that’ll stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page. If you’re a sucker for mafia romance like me, consider this your next must-read. Trust me, it left a mark on my soul and might do the same for you! 🌟✨😊🥰😉

Danielle Lori’s novels incorporate morally questionable heroes, electric hate to love relationships, and sometimes sweet but mostly sassy heroines. She has written in both the fantasy subgenre as well as contemporary, but will never stray from romance. A normal day for her includes coffee, bodice rippers, and 1990s chick flicks. She lives in small-town Iowa with her husband, son, and too many dogs.
