The Sweetest Oblivion (Made, #1) (1)

Bc of me being in a review slump and slapping ‘Rtc’ after almost every review recently, I’m being

forced asked nicely to finally release this one into the ether, I'm only back for this one so watch me retire for the next year 😙😙This isn’t gna be a very coherent review and everything is gna be all over the place but I bout near bust a metacarpal making this long asf review so enjoy <333

*ੈ✩‧₊˚

Imagine this: You go to a theme park and try all the rides to find your favourite. And then once you do? You wanna go again and again and again right? This is me with TSO.

It gives me the same thrill and giddiness every single time. I know exactly what’s gna happen when and the familiarity of it combined with the knowledge that I am guaranteed to love it?? It’s a drug. And even tho I’ve read it four times already, you’ll still find me looking forward to it, knowing the rush it’s gonna give will get me higher than a kite 💃🕺 And it serves delivers PROVIDES every damn time. That’s NicoElena for you 😌👑💅

Ugh If you can’t tell by now I love this book. And I wanna reread it AGAIN already 😭

One thing I love abt the book is that they have some sort of interaction within the first few pages. Like I will always always always want to start from page 1 and not three chapters in yk?

I have so many fav scenes & chapters in this book it’s hard to pick out a few to focus on when I love everything in the book (also the reason I’ve got 500+ highlights…)

One thing I can say with my chest is that Nico fell first and harder than Elena. It’s just the truth. He fell for her since day DOTTT. He was obsessed w her since the first moment he laid eyes on her 🤭 also omfds when got touchy bc she was sweet to everyone but him aksgjdhdj isn’t he adorableeeee 🥹

╰┈➤ ❝ “Nico, what if the Three Fates were real and I’d been destined for another?”
He slipped his hands into his pockets, his gaze igniting with a spark. “I guess I’d have to find those Fates and burn them to the ground.”

He says all the right things to get my heart skidding 😭

Everything about Nicolas Russo has me in a chokehold:
♥︎ Nico and his hair fisting- no bc when he wraps his fist in her hair twice? BRB going to part my hair with a chainsaw rq ✋
♥︎ Nico and his tats. 🫦🫦
♥︎ His hand necklaces
♥︎ Nico and him rubbing a hand over his mouth when he’s particularly amused is so hot idc idc. 🤰
♥︎ Nico and his tongue running over his teeth. Like this should be as attractive as he makes it-
♥︎ His J/P streak?? My feminism: 🚮
♥︎ His itchy burning hatred for Elena’s ring 💘💘💘💘💘
♥︎ His animosity towards the word ‘platonic’ kahsjdhdj
♥︎ His silent love for Elena’s pink aesthetic
♥︎ His encyclopaedic knowledge of cars
♥︎ Him getting his hands dirty (by working on his car ofc 🤭)

It’s the way everyone used Elena but Nico was only one that just cared about her that has my whole fking heartttttt 🤧💘💕

*ੈ✩‧₊˚

Elena is one of my favourite fmcs ever. I loveeee her sfm. She’s adorable, witty, softhearted but guarded, has manners but throws them out the window whenever Nico enters the chat. She finds him safe enough to not analyse her words her actions and allows herself to just live in the moment with him. That’s the thing I love the most, it’s that she basically uses him as a punching bag lmao. But dw Nico doesn’t let anything slide when it comes to her and her assumptions kagdjfhdjdhkdhdkdhdk 💃🚂

🌸 Her friendship with her sister >>>
︎🌸 Her fashion sense and her love for pink. 💅
🌸 Her itty bitty fifty cent ugly ring.
🌸 Elena being cute and domesticating Nico navshksdj. 💗🙏💕💘💞🦋
🌸 Elena being a shallow party-loving queen. I love to see it. 👑
🌸 Elena being docile but feisty with Nico is so yummy 😋
🌸 Elena teasing himmmmm jshjdhdjd it hits every damn time 🙏
🌸 Elena caring abt her family and being an overprotective mama bear when they’re hurt 🥹🥹

I love the fact that there was no ‘body betraying me’ bs. I love that she owns up to whatever she feels for him even if it is to herself. Her inner monologue didn’t annoy me once. Which I can admit is surprising bc of all the resistance she puts up but idc I love her for it.

Elena is so like me fr she pretends to like reading history books in front of everyone but is a romantic at heart likeeeeee ?! pls we are basically the same person 🤭

Elena every time she felt needy for his attention while he was working:

When he does this??? :

╰┈➤ ❝ “A hint of a smile pulled on his lips, and he wiped at it with a thumb before sliding his hand back in his pocket. ”

It’s the hottest f*cking thing ever pls i didn’t know this could be as hot as it was- it fr got me on my knees barking for him ✋

╰┈➤ ❝ “Do you know what assuming gets you?”
“Killed?”
I breathed.
His eyes fell to my lips. “Smart girl.”

The Sweetest Oblivion (Made, #1) (3)

No bc if he’s not setting a petrol station on fire bc the owner messed w me, he can eat sh*t 🧚‍♀️ Nico Russo will forever reign unmatched i fear

╰┈➤ ❝ “I swear to God, Elena, if I find out you’ve let some man touch you, I will deliver his hands to you in a box.
And I do not. f*cking. Bluff.”

My sanity: 404 not found

When he starts looking for the pink in her outfits?? my goodness my heart be doin backflips and cartwheels 🏌️‍♂️🤸🏻‍♀️🕺

My man is hilarioussss asf:

╰┈➤ ❝ “It was only business advice, from one man to another,” he seethed, standing.
“If I wanted business advice from a man poorer than me I would have asked for it.”

He's so f*cking savage I cantttttttt 💀✋✋✋

Him pushing her in the pool bc he was jealous >>> we love a petty king 👑

Her keeping her mouth from Nico and not letting him kiss her and then him getting pressed about it BUT THEN WHEN THEY FINALLY KISS- *proceeds to make pterodactyl noises*
There’s just something about that sh*t in books I’m telling u, it’s intoxicating 👹👹

╰┈➤ ❝ “Nico, I’m so sore.”
“f*ck, baby, I’m sorry.”

Him calling her baby simply sent me to another dimension and then what came after this?? Got me clutching my sheets slhdiffjdbd

That moment when Nico started to appreciate Elena for her as a person and fully taking in the expressions on her face? It made me so weak for him I can’t even describe it properly but it felt like my heart soared, my grin grew so big my cheeks hurt, and my serotonin levels shot so highhhhh- it was just satisfaction personified 🙏

*ੈ✩‧₊˚

The chemistry. the push and pull. the SEXUAL TENSION 🗣️ — there’s nothing, NOTHING that can beat what they have. Every interaction every word every silent communication claimed a piece of my heart and I’m afraid I’ll never get them back (i don’t want them back either 🤭🦋✨💞)

The secret silent glances across the room?? Got me GAGGED.
The soft touches? The.. *rough* touches??? Helpppp I’m so f*cking in love.

The small moments, THE SMALL MOMENTS 😭 Chapter 42/43/45 u will forever be famous 🙏👑 They were the sweetest most scrumptious parts of this book. Like the smut was ofc 10/10 but I will take softness over excessive smut all day every day but the author really found the perfect balance between the romance and smut. It was perfectttttt- for an Insta lust book, this is the blueprint. The slow burn is done so well. Every interaction between them leaves me FEELING something anything everything.

Every scene every chapter is something new. It’s not just tropes thrown in to please the reader. It’s always refreshing to read how they interact in different settings. I love it.

╰┈➤ ❝ “You make me f*cking crazy.”
“Don’t blame me for your psychosis.”
“You are my psychosis.”

Side note:
Dominic and Nonna were the MVPs of this book. If Dominic doesn’t get a book Imma start crying.

Also, I want a bonus scene of them watching Yankees vs. Red Sox. I can just imagine the top tier banterrrr

I still don’t have the proper words to explain why I love NicoElena sm but maybe on my third reread you’ll get a proper review??

Side note: I’m convinced the song ‘what it is’(solo version) by Deochii was made for NicoElena 💅
