Dark Romance Couples As Taylor Swift's Reputation Lyrics

Updated: Sep 13

Hello everyone! I read no shortage of dark romance novels, within reason, in my daily life. I'm someone who prefers their romance novels with a lot of angst and even more pain on the side.

Today, I decided it was time for another blog post of Dark Romance Couples As Taylor Swift's Reputation Lyrics. You may notice in this post that all of the books I will be discussing are written by Cora Reilly. I am slightly obsessed with her books when I'm in the mood for a little more grit to the romance novels I read.


Thankfully, she is constantly coming out with new releases, almost at an alarming rate. I'm never short on new or, at the very least, upcoming releases to look forward to. One of her upcoming titles that I am already excited to read is By Sin I Rise. It will be released in September of this year


Twisted Emotion by Cora Reilly


Description: Nino Falcone is genius and monster. As the right hand man and brother of the Capo of the Camorra, his lack of feelings is a blessing, not a curse – until his brother asks him to marry for the sake of the Camorra.


Kiara Vitiello, cousin of the Capo of the New York Famiglia, is chosen to marry Nino Falcone to prevent war with the Camorra, but what she hears about Las Vegas makes her veins pulse with terror. After her father betrayed his Capo and paid with his life, her family thinks marriage is her only chance to bring honor to her name; but only Kiara knows she’s a faulty prize given in return for peace.


A man incapable of emotions and a woman scarred by the past – an arranged marriage with the potential to unite, or destroy…


  • Kiara: Sometimes when I look into your eyes // I pretend you're mine, all the damn time // 'Cause I like you - Delicate, Reputation


  • Nino: And darling, you had turned my bed into a sacred oasis // People started talking, putting us through our paces // I knew there was no one in the world who could take it // I had a bad feeling - Dancing With Our Hands Tied, Reputation


Bound by Temptation by Cora Reilly


Description: Liliana Scuderi has been in love with Romero from the moment she first saw him. After her sisters were married off for tactical reasons, she hopes she might be allowed to choose a husband for herself, but when her father promises her to a man more than twice her age that hope is crushed. No begging can make him change his mind.


Romero has always ignored Lily’s flirting. Her age and status made her off-limits but even someone as dutiful as him has only so much control. Wanting her when she’s supposed to marry another man could mean war between New York and the Chicago Outfit, and Romero has always put the Cosa Nostra first.


Lily suspects her sisters and Romero would risk everything for her, but is her happiness worth that much? Is love worth a war between the Cosa Nostra and the Outfit?


  • Lilliana: Knew he was a killer first time that I saw him // Wonder how many girls he had loved and left haunted // But if he's a ghost, then I can be a phantom // Holdin' him for ransom - Ready For It?, Reputation


  • Romero: It was the great escape, the prison break // The light of freedom on my face // But you weren't thinking // And I was just drinking - Getaway Car, Reputation


Twisted Loyalties by Cora Reilly


Description: Fabiano was raised to follow in his father’s footsteps as Consigliere of the Chicago Outfit – until the man abandons him. Left to fend for himself, Fabiano is forced to fight for a place in the mafia world. As a ruthless street fighter, he quickly earns his place as the new Enforcer of the Las Vegas Camorra – a man to fear.


Leona wants to build a decent life for herself, away from her drug-addicted mother. But soon she catches the attention of a dangerous man – Fabiano Scuderi. Staying out of trouble and living a normal life are near impossible with a man like him.

Leona knows she needs to avoid Fabiano, but men like him aren’t easy to shake off. They always get what they want.


Fabiano cares about only one thing: the Camorra.

But his attraction to Leona soon puts his unwavering loyalty to the test. Is Leona worth risking everything he’s fought for, and ultimately his life?


Fabiano: Met you in a bar // All eyes on me, your illusionist // All eyes on us // I make all your gray days clear - So It Goes, Reputation


Leona: Up on the roof with a school girl crush// Drinking beer out of plastic cups // Say you fancy me, not fancy stuff // Baby, all at once, this is enough - King of My Heart, Reputation
