Dalia: My absolute favorite is The Italian Heartthrob by N.J. Adel. An emotional roller coaster with a lot of angst. Ugly cry read and the best of 2020.
Lisa M: …good read for the weekend The Italian Heartthrob by N.J. Adel, loved it.It was one of those books I really wanted to skip to the end & read what happens because I needed to know right away & then read from where I left off.

About book #1:
Forbidden is what we are… I was 10. You were 19. You wanted to be a chef. My mom made you a star.
I’m 24. You’re 33. You hold the record for the Sexiest Man Alive. I’m still the lost, rejected, damaged girl who can’t find herself anywhere but in your protective arms.
I loved you when I was 10. I love you now. You call me your best friend, and you still see me as a kid.
I’m 25 with a man on one knee in front of me. You’re watching through the glass. One word from you is all I need. But you hold a secret that can destroy us both.
I’ve known you my whole life. Loved you my whole life. Never thought when I die, it will be because of you.
This is NOT a Mafia novel. The Italian Heartthrob is a forbidden friends to lovers standalone. The dark themes may set you in tears.
