So, I started seeing this book all over Goodreads within a span of like two months. Like it was so hyped, that I just had to see what the hype was about. Unfortunately, this book did not live up to the hype for me, but it was still however a decent read. And I definitely can see why it is as hyped as it is.
The heroine in the book, Elena, just wasn’t as strong as people made her out to be. She didn’t do anything fascinating until the end of the book when she wanted to do something for her family. Throughout the whole book, it just seemed like she was lusting over Nico and constantly throwing herself at him. Which, might I also add, it didn’t seem to take her long to fall for him. She was skeptical the first two times she met him, but after that, it was just non-stop lust.
On top of that, Nico was originally engaged to her sister. Even though Elena basically through herself at her sister’s fiancé, she couldn’t seem to stop thinking that he wouldn’t be faithful to her. But it was ok that he wasn’t faithful to her sister when he started to want her….oh…kay…lol.
Honestly, after so many chapters, the story line got really old. I felt like the book could have been shorter. The ending of the book is honestly what saved it for me because majority of the book was Elena throwing herself at Nico and wondering if he would be faithful to her. Nico wasn’t that bad of a character, I just wished we got a little bit more when it came to him.
I do plan to read The Maddest Obsession because I don’t think the first book has completely killed the series for me yet, so we shall see how I feel about book 2!!
Have you read The Sweetest Oblivion? What were your thoughts?
