“A conscience can’t fracture if it doesn’t exist, and if you bargain with the devil, sometimes you pay with your soul.”
Darkest Deeds by Cora Kenborn, book #7 in the Cavalieri Della Morte series. I know I’ve said it multiple times while reading this series but I really do have a new favorite and this one is right at the TOP of the list for me! Darkest Deeds has a little of EVERYTHING, enemies-to-lovers, second chance romance, suspense, betrayal, murder, AND the mafia! This book packed a serious punch! Cora Kenborn is a new-to-me author and man does she know how to write a mafia romance! Told in dual POV there are so many bombs dropped you won’t know when the next ones coming!
“I’m a moth enticed by a dangerously deceptive flame.”
Nikolai Garetovsky, now known as Niko Gaheris (or one of the other 28 aliases that he uses) is another one of Arthur Calthorpe’s loyal assassins for the Tabella Della Morte. Niko just finished a hit when Arthur calls with another one, at first Niko wants to turn it down… but when he finds out the reason Arthur called him is that it’s a hit on someone from his past, someone he’s wanted revenge on for eight long years, he can’t agree fast enough.
Once upon a time all those years ago Niko loved Ava and would have done anything in the world to protect her, but one night when Niko needed Ava to protect him from her father who was once Niko’s mentor, she didn’t and Niko suffered horrible consequences for a crime that he didn’t commit because of it. But now, Niko has his chance for revenge.
“The troubled little girl I vowed to protect. The beautiful young woman I tried to resist. The Bratva princess I grew to hate.”
Ava Chernova the Bratva Princess and the Russian mob boss, Sergei Chernova’s daughter. While working as a stripper at her father’s club Seventh Heaven, better known as Seven because “nothing that happens in there is holy” Ava is caught in a compromising “position” when Special Agent Ethan Schaeffer decides to raid Seven while Ava is in one of the VIP rooms with a client.
Agent Schaeffer decides that Ava could be useful to him so he uses her indiscretions against her to make her spy on her own people. But Sergei hasn’t gotten to where he is now by not knowing what’s going on with the people around him and he knows that Ava is talking to the FED’s and he wants her dead.
But Niko isn’t just out for revenge on Ava, he wants Sergei dead too. But when Niko sees his Pchelka for the first time in eight years, well you know what they say about the best-made plans…
“Nothing about her has ever made me act rationally, but fuck, she’s nothing like the teenager I remember. This version of Sergei’s daughter isn’t the one from my violent fantasies. The one on stage is a walking paradox. A diabolical angel. A mind fuck with a body crafted for sin and a face carved from the heavens.”
After 8 years apart and a lot of mistrust and resentment between them, there is STILL that something that draws them to one another, and after all these years, when the two of them finally come together, it’s absolutely explosive! 🔥🔥🔥
“I’m not fucking you tonight, Ava.” “Then what are you doing?” “Loving you.”
Between the threat of her father and Agent Schaeffer, Ava has to make a plan and she doesn’t have very long to figure it out.
“He’ll never understand. None of them will. It’s not easy taking a step forward when you don’t know where your foot will fall. It could land on safe ground or just as easily plunge me to my death.”
Will Niko murder the only girl he’s ever loved, the same girl that he vowed to protect? Or will Ava betray Niko all over again?
You’ll have to check out Darkest Deeds to find out!
Niko is an absolute alpha! He exudes power and masculinity and I totally understand why Ava has an awfully hard time hating him. BUT Ava, Ava is hell on high heels! She’s sexy and deadly but she still has an air of innocence to her that Niko finds impossible to resist even though he doesn’t know whether he can actually trust her or not.
“You see, Ava, Sergei may have hated you, but you always knew that. But me? I loved you, and love that turns to hate is the most dangerous kind.”
I think my absolute favorite part of this one was that even though this is Niko’s story, Ava completely stole the show! I loved Niko but there is nothing better to me than a strong ass heroine who can hold her own with her alpha, and Ava, she can do more than just hold her own, she can give him a run for his money!
“I hate him for not fighting harder to save me. I hate him for letting my father turn me into a whore. I hate him for hating me. But mostly, I hate me. I hate me because as hard as I want to make myself believe all of it, I don’t.”
I HIGHLY recommend Darkest Deeds, if you like dark mafia romances that are full of betrayal and redemption then this is the one for you!
“I’ve done what I thought was right. I’ve tried to right my wrongs. But like I said, I’m no butterfly. I’m a motherfucking bee. And it won’t be the flap of a butterfly’s wings that starts this storm. It’ll be the sting no one saw coming.”

About The Author
International bestselling author Cora Kenborn writes twisted romances about damaged bad boys and feisty heroines. She promises her readers a happily ever after, although she may or may not take them on an emotional rollercoaster before giving it to them.
(Okay, she totally will.)
A Southern girl from North Carolina, Cora says “y’all” way too much and has a lifelong addiction to sweet tea. She refuses to “adult” without coffee, thinks pajamas are acceptable daywear, and considers note-taking during true crime shows to be perfectly normal.
On the rare occasion that Cora has free time, she spends it avoiding laundry and convincing her family that Hot Pockets are an acceptable dinner.
Oh, and autocorrect thinks she’s obsessed with ducks.
