The Sweetest Oblivion: Made, Book 1 Livres audio Audible – Version intégrale
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.
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 is darker than his black suits and ties.
After Elena’s first encounter with Nicholas, 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 goes 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 sexual tension between Elena and Nico is smoldering hot and their story so addictive that I just keep reading this romance over and over...I can't get enough.
I just fell in love with the 2 main characters, Elena and Nico!! 😍
I love how the writer lets us have the points of view of them both. It especially helped me not to view Nico as just an a*** hole control freak. ^^
He seems indifferent towards Elena but the reader quickly understands that Nico is completely fascinated by Elena. 😍
I love Danielle Lori's writing style. There are deeply meaningful quotes at the beginning of each chapter, they are just awesome. Daniele Lori' s writing makes us quickly identify with the characters, how they feel. The chemistry between Elena and Nico is sizzling hot!!
I love all their interactions and all their silent moments when they just look or stare at each other. I love the fact that both are fascinated by the other one, that Nico can't take his eyes off Elena. I was also very intrigued by Elena because I could feel that she was pure at heart...she loves watching the news, she loves reading and she clearly doesn't fit in this Mafia world.
Little by little, the author reveals new aspects of her personality.
Now what was also brilliant was to show by his actions and reactions how Nico feels about Elena!
He's a real Alpha male and really bossy most of the time but he has a good heart and wants to protect her. He realizes how pure she is little by little. And my heart melted whenever he was sweet with her... 😍❤
I still don't understand why I didn't find this gem of a book sooner!! The writing, the characters are all so compelling... I have read Mafia romances, some very good romances (Cora Reilly) but this story of Elena and Nico has something unique that makes it difficult to forget.
“There comes a point in life when you know that what you want to do is wrong, and you have to decide whether to avoid the temptation or do it anyway. I was doing it anyway.”
Oh my god.
I am seriously in love with this book and with this series. I have to say that Danielle Lori has soon become one of my favourite authors at there. The world and characters she's created are so intriguing and addictive. It almost feels like one book isn't enough for Elena and Nico. Their chemistry is so strong and oh so undeniable, and don't get me started on the sexual tension. I literally couldn't help but want more and MORE. They are truly one of my favorite couples this year, if not ever.
Overall, The Sweetest Oblivion is a captivating, passionate, compelling, mafia romance filled with passion, intense characters and insanely explosive chemistry. I don't even know what to say, except that you HAVE to read this book. Nico Russo and Elena Abelli are so perfect together and the side characters bring so much to the story. I am utterly and completely obsessed.
I highly, highly recommend this book, and this series.

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
Elena Salvatore has been the perfect daughter her whole life until 6months ago when she ran away and it has haunted her ever since. Her parents are disappointed and don't trust her and now her sister has to have an arranged marriage earlier than expected because Elena is "tainted". Meeting her future brother-in-law should of been easy, but she knows of Nicolas Russo's reputation, they call him "Ace", he has mafia blood running through his veins. He's rude, brash and takes no victims. She should of stayed away from him but from their very first conversation things were different. Her attraction to him isn't right, he is marrying her sister, but why is it everytime she enters a room it's her he is looking at.
Nicolas Russo is a hard hearted man and he likes it that way, if you cross him your dead and that incudes his family. He hates the Salvatore family but bringing them together with marriage will mend fences and is a good business move for both sides. Unfortunately he meets Elena and sparks fly, he soon realises that he is going to be marrying the wrong sister. He shouldn't be attracted to this woman, but she gets under his skin like no other and he wants her with a passion he has never felt before. Nico is like a man possessed so lord help any man who thinks he can go near Elena. What he needs to remember is that she is not going to be his wife, he needs to keep away from her but fate has other plans.
If taking up the mafia lifestyle meant I could have Nico then sign me up. This man was outrageous in the baddest type of ways. His protective nature towards Elena from the start was heart melting...and also dangerous for any man around her. He fell hard for her and I hated how insecure he was when it came to her feelings towards him, anyone could see they were meant to be together. This book has given me a major hangover but it was worth it, I love a good slow burn and believe me that's what we got with this 🔥🔥.
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 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.
