Release Blitz + Review: By Virtue I Fall by Cora Reilly

Love is an inconvenience Anna Cavallaro doesn’t have time for. 

By Virtue I Fall, the highly anticipated and jaw-dropping dark mafia standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Cora Reilly, is live now!

Love is an inconvenience Anna Cavallaro doesn’t have time for. 

She only has one goal: to become a fashion designer. Chicago’s elite already copies her style religiously, not least because she’s the daughter of the city’s notorious mafia boss. 

When she’s accepted at a world-famous fashion institute in Paris, her father’s condition is to take her bodyguard along. 

Anna definitely wouldn’t mind a few weeks of no-strings-attached fun with her brooding protector. 

Santino Bianchi became the Outfit’s enforcer because he liked the thrill of the hunt and kill.

Babysitting his capo’s daughter is an honorable assignment he can’t refuse. His thoughts about Anna? Not so honorable.


Santino’s ignored Anna’s persistent flirting for years. Now, far away from home boundaries begin to blur. But Santino doesn’t have any intention to be the reason for a failed engagement and the ensuing scandal. 

A summer fling in Paris.

Only two things stand in Anna’s way.

Santino’s iron will. 

And…her fiancé.

Fall in love today!

By Virtue I Fall was a great mafia romance. I really enjoyed the dynamic of Anna and her bodyguard Santino’s relationship. She started off by annoying him but was able to worm her way into his heart. The progress of their relationship was done really well, and it felt very organic. I was glad that the author took the time for them to grow as individuals and as a couple. 

“I knew my crush on Santino was completely ridiculous for various reasons, the main one him being ten years older than me.”

There were moments that I wanted to tell Anna to follow her heart instead of her brain, especially towards the end of the story. Overall I was very satisfied with this book. Santino was an amazing book boyfriend, I loved his broody and serious attitude. I also enjoyed being reunited with my favorite characters from previous books. Both Anna and Santino were very likable and I enjoyed reading their story.
