Maddox – Mad Dog – White hates everything the name Vitiello stands for, after he witnessed his father and his men getting butchered by the Capo of the Italian mob in their territory. Raised by his uncle, the president of the Tartarus MC, Maddox is destined to follow in his footsteps. Now their chapter is on the rise again, but for their ultimate triumph they need to destroy the Vitiello empire. And what better way to do it than to steal the spoilt Vitiello princess and break her piece by piece until her father begs for mercy.
Known as the spoilt princess of New York, Marcella Vitiello grew up in a golden cage. If your father is the most feared man in New York, people gift you with reverence.
Destined to marry the boyfriend approved by her father, Marcella is sick of being treated like an untouchable porcelain doll.
She resents the life forced upon her by her family until everything she took for granted is ripped from her. Where she’s now, her name doesn’t bring awe, only pain and humiliation.
If you’ve grown up in a high castle, the fall is all the deeper.
Sins of the fathers have a way of catching up, who’s going to bleed for them?

Cora Reilly does it again with this sexy mafia-meets-MC romance!
The Queen of Mafia writes a book that’s MC-meets-mafia?? Is it my birthday?? This story is so. Freaking. Good. There’s a grittiness to mafia and MC romances that I love, and this story has it in spades. For any fans of Cora Reilly, you can’t miss this for the cameos alone but also because it is one of her most exciting stories to date.
By Sin I Rise tells the story of Luca and Ariana’s grown-up daughter, who is targeted for the brutal sins of her father. Marcella is now a smart, confident, poised young woman who loves her family but feels confined as a woman in a mafia man’s world. She knows her dad is a dangerous man, but she longs to be with a man who doesn’t cower to him. Enter Maddox, a tough, haunted, sexy MC brother who has no qualms going toe to toe with her dad. But it definitely isn’t that simple. Many moons ago, her dad went on an absolute murderous rampage, and little boy Maddox witnessed the carnage. To say he has a problem with Marcella’s dad is a HUGE understatement.
Maddox is a man with vengeance running through his veins. His back story was so terrible it almost made me cry, and you can understand his need for revenge against Luca for the terrible part he played in Maddox’ history. Marcella is an intelligent, tough, privileged and protected woman who suddenly finds herself “taken in” by the MC with the biggest grudge against her father. Things go from a little bad to terrible pretty quick.
There’s a brewing war between a wronged MC and the powerhouse of the mafia and Marcella is in the center of a dangerous game. As she falls for Maddox, her heart is torn between the love for her father and the love of his enemy. Maddox finds his entire world turned upside down, making him question his loyalties- to the MC, to his vengeance, and to the woman he loves.
Maddox and Marcella are so “It’s Complicated” it isn’t funny. The connection between Maddox and Marcella is charged, dangerous, and it If things weren’t so completely messed up, these two would be perfect for each other. But as the story goes on, there is no way to ignore the boiling tension or the escalating violence, and at the root is the ever-growing awareness that there is no way to win without losing something important.
Hold on to your Kindles!! By Sin I Rise is the kind of book that will keep you glued to the edge of your seat, rooting for the main characters, and praying for what seems like an impossible HEA.
By Sin I Rise is definitely unforgettable and it has already inspired me to go on a Reilly re-reading frenzy. No complaints here!
Love Mad and Marci!!
This highly anticipated book does not disappoint. Both Mad and Marci each bring something fresh and new to the mafia world of the past. Marci doesn’t want to stay in her cage and she is fierce and fights for what she wants. Mad is exactly as you want him to be. Then add some Luca, Amo and Aria and it makes for a perfect read. Can’t wait until part 2 comes out.
