The Italian Obsession
Her innocence and purity don't belong in my world.
I killed her father.
None of it matters. Angelina Baldi is the bane of my existence and my absolute obsession.
She belongs to me. She's safe only with me.
The only problem is that her wedding bells are ringing, and I'm not the man waiting at the altar.
I've killed for her before. I'd do it again.
Except that her ...more
More lists with this book...
To say the book is disturbingly brilliant is an understatement. It's one of those books that stays and haunts and claws at you and never lets go until it owns you and then hurts and breaks you to pieces, exactly like what Tino does to Lina.
That alone shows a level of storytelling mastery I've rarely come ac ...more

This is the story between a mafia stalker and an innocent young girl, Angelina. When her father is murdered her life changes in more ways than one. Tino and Linas story is brilliant.
This is my first but definitely not my last read by this author. I highly recommend this story if you like stalker mafia romance.
ARC received from Booksprout and author in exchange for an honest review. Opinions expressed are my own and have not been influenced in any way.
The author is VERY upfront about trigger warnings as there are some disturbing scenes - the hero is an absolute villain. Normally, I might have chosen not to read it but instead decided to without any preconceived opinions and just let the storyline take me where it wanted to ..
The cover model is amazing an ...more

This book is a fantastic read. It's a psychological thriller that will have you turning the pages faster than you can read them. While your mind going crazy with all the twists and turns and leaving you shocked with a ending I didn't see coming.
"The monster is gone. It’s not a dream. He’s never gonna hurt us again."
This books has put me through an emotional rollercoaster that's had me feeling utter joy, faith that maybe thin ...more

So twisted and deliciously sinful. The Italian Obsession is not your typical romance. An unconventional love story between an obsessed stalker and his innocent angel.
Angelina had an abusive childhood. Her life changed for the better after her father is mysteriously murdered. She cannot believe her luck when her and her sister are uplifted from poverty to a fancy, all-expense paid boarding school. She grows up sensi ...more
I only recently discovered N.J. Adel and let me tell you, I am addicted. In The Italian Obsession is a story of obsession and stalking and I devoured it. I do not want to share too much, because you definitely just have to read this book. There are surprises and twists at every turn. Angelina’s youth was not a good one. When her father is murdered, she believes it was good fortune, because her life changes for the better. But who was the person in the background ensuring your safety now ...more
I didn’t like the Lina’s character too, she was so indecisive about her feelings, says she’s afraid about her stalker,Tino, but at the same wants h ...more
There is so much taboo stalker vibes in this book, it’s hard to put down, and impossible to forget. This is my first read of this author and I’m so glad I jumped in here. This is a total standalone and will take you on a roller coaster of all the emotions. Anger, angst, sadness, joy, it is all there. I loved how unpredictable this book was. When you read a book, you expect certain things at 30%, 60%, 92%, this book was an exceptio ...more
Omg. Wow. I have to take a breath. Okay. I kept telling myself I shouldn’t be enjoying this story so much, but like Angel, I couldn’t seem to help it. Tino is one twisted monster, yet I couldn’t help but like him. This is definitely one of my favorite dark romances—ever.

The Italian Obsession is a standalone novel in The Italian series. All the books in The Italians series can be read in any order.
Contains issues and situations some may find triggering.
WHAT HAVE I JUST READ? DARK, TWISTED, CRAZY!!!
First, I would like to warn again, that is was a very dark read. Don't take lightly the author's warning at the beginning of the book.
N.J Adel has done it again!
A Dark, gritty, twisted , taboo age gap that will leave your heart racing and at the edge of your seat. I was captivated. I loved every minute of this book.
There are triggers and plenty of them so please proceed with caution and be sure to take them seriously before reading. This isn’t for the faint hearted and will have you shook. I’m amazed. I never expected this. Not gonna lie I didn’t read the blurb, so reading was a pleasant surprise. This is b ...more
Holy Camolie... I really have no words for this book. From the very beginning, there was this weird, crazy vibe and the setting of the story was creepy and eerie. I was hoping things would get better, not as insane, but nope - it definitely got way terrifying by the end.
I'm very conflicted on my feelings as well, which is why I keep feeling like this is a 3.5 book, but the rating scale wo ...more
