Every book I have read by this author has been been just fantastic, and this book was no different. Even the one small issue I had with it was because I am a grudge holding bitch and felt that Nico needed to do some serious grovelling after the second time he thought the worst about Ava. (lol)

Apart from the above mentioned issue, this was was a complete hit with me. The writing was excellent. I loved that it was on the longer side so the story felt suitably fleshed out. It was well pa

Darkest Deeds really fulfilled my darkest deeds, that’s for sure.

I’ve never read anything by this author but I’m happy to say that she has another secured reader in me. Her world building and character chemistry is amazing. I really believed everything that she wrote in this book. It was sadistic, it was depraved, it was hot, it had everything I didn’t even know i wanted.

Niko and Ava are a couple who works. They’re both damaged people but beneath that, they’re resilient and a force to be reckon

Darkest Deeds is part of the "Cavalieri della Morte" series by Cora Kenborn and other romance authors. When I delved into this I knew that I couldn't expect butterflies and rainbows, but that's ok. When it comes to dark romance, if it's done right, I'm all for it.

The story of Ava and Niko is complicated. He is a hitman who takes care of the people that the "bad guys" want to erase from this world. So, when he is tasked to kill Ava Chernova, who is the daughter of a Russian mafia boss,

"We’re fucked up. We’re sadistic, and we do things most people would consider the darkest of deeds."

You know what I love about this series, I'm finding new authors, ones I probably wouldn't have read otherwise. Cora Kenborn included, I loved the plot, the characters, and the writing.
Darkest Deeds is part of The Cavalieri Della Morte, read as a standalone. I've read seven books in this series, and I'm being completely honest by saying you can read in any order. A brotherhood of dark, delicious

I loved Darkest Deeds by Cora Kenborn. It was fast paced, thrilling, sexy as hell, and engaging. I couldn't stop flipping the pages to find out what happens next, and all the verbal sparring had me panting for more.

Ava and Niko are dynamite together. I enjoyed all the twists and turns along the way, constantly wondering who to trust, and being shocked by some of the reveals. It was so much fun and exactly what romantic suspense should be-full of tension and surprises that leave your jaw on the f

If I could give this book 10 stars I TOTALLY would!! 5 stars doesn't seem to sum up the brilliance that is Darkest Deeds.

I really enjoyed this book and fit right in with the others in this series. While this can be read as a stand-alone I am completely in lust with the Cavalieri Della Morte.

This book is Niko's and this job is personal. Way more personal that he anticipated it would be. He had a plan, get in, make his mark sweat a bit and get the job done. Well, that was the plan anyway. And then he saw Ava again. Ava is bada$$ but she has spent her life the surviving one terrible thing after the ne

Wow!! This book was sinfully delicious. Dark, intense, twisted, dangerous and scorching hot, this is a book that quickly pulls you under and does not let up. Niko and Ava were pure perfection. These two wounded people were made for each other. Prepare yourself for an epic thrill ride that is filled with raw emotion, drama, suspense, brutality, twists, lies, secrets, betrayals and revenge. A simply amazing read!

Dark, Suspenseful, Hawt!!!

Leave it to Ms. Kenborn to give us yet another hit. Niko and Ava have both lived the life of the Bratva and they know of the darkness. This book is full of twists and turns which means that about the time you think you have it figured out you’ll be thrown in a whole new direction. The connection these two share is off the charts. Darkest Deeds will keep you up all night just to find out how this all ends. Definitely a book I couldn’t put down.

Darkest Deeds is part of the Cavalieri Della Morte series, each written by a different author and if this is anything to go by, I cant wait to dive in to the rest!

Fast paced, action packed and explosive chemistry when assassin Niko Gaheris meets Bratva princess Ava Chernova in a story laced with intrigue, deception, suspense, revenge, heat and blood. Oh yes, a lot of blood! It's dark, it's brutal and not for the faint hearted or those who want a love story full of whispered sweet nothings and fl

What can I say about Darkest Deeds by Cora Kenborn? First, this is a must read! This book kept me up way into the night! Darkest Deeds intriguing, suspenseful and romantic and I was unable to tear myself away from it. Niko and the chemistry with these two. Two lovers, misunderstanding, mistakes, lies, death, letting go with so much more in between the pages that you just need to read it for yourself.

This book more than holds its own in what is proving to be one amazing series.

Darkest Deeds is yet another action packed, gripping instalment in the Cavalieri Della Morte series. It is the violent, heart wrenching and disturbed tale of Niko, Ava and second chances.

Oh my word this book is REALLY VERY GOOD, the plot had so many twists and turns I got dizzy! I can't believe how many bluffs, double bluffs, lies, secrets and slight of hands the author managed to fit into this story, yet it never fel

Eight years of torment and Niko has received the green light to deliver vengeance to the one that broke the ultimate promise. A personal hit, Niko relishes the opportunity to unleash his demons and unfurl all the ugly he has swallowed down.

Wow! Darkest Deeds is freaking amazing! I was hooked from the beginning all the way to the end. I might also have been drawn up in knots while reading. Lol! If you love dark strong characters, a book full of unpredictable suspense and dark grim action then you need to read Darkest Deeds. I couldn't get enough of Niko and Ava.

A new to me author, Cora Kenborn has just slayed it with this dark read.

Darkest deeds kept me on edge the whole way through the story, twists and turns you don’t see coming, lies and secrets galore, and full to the brim with action.

It’s extremely dark and twisted so if you are looking for a light fluffy read, this book and this series isn’t for you.

Mind blowing!

Deliciously dark and addictive from the first page to the last. Darkest Deeds by Cora Kenborn has given us an amazingly well crafted tale that will keep you guessing all the way to the very end. This was my first time reading something by this author and if this book is anything to go by I think I’m going to be adding many more of her books to my TBR list! If you enjoy dark, twisty, romances this book is definitely for you.

I have been looking forward to a new book by Cora and Darkest Deeds hits the spot. Nick and Ava were tragically ripped apart at a young age by her scheming, controlling father. They find themselves thrown together many years later, Nick having an ulterior motive. With so much having happened in those years how do get past it all?
This book is dark. Twisted. And so enthralling. You won’t want to put it down.

What a read Ms. Kenborn nailed her characters in a brilliant way. There. Will be lots of lies, secrets, and twists - that's what makes this story so disturbing but addictive as well!
Ava is one hell of a woman that survived a nightmare to arise like a phoenix in her full glory. I loved her! I hope more and more woman in books will be that strong they on their own would be a force to be reckoned with.

A dark past ties Ava and Niko together. As does betrayal. He's contracted to kill her. She's jaded by life and everything it has thrown to her, but also torn by guilt for what she was forced to do to him eight years ago.

As much as Niko would love to say he didn't still care for Ava, will the heart truly listen to the pain the mind hold onto? Can they find a way to save her life and get the FBI off her back? Is there really any hope of a future for a paid assassin and a "mob princess"?

This book left me breathless. From the beginning to the end, you never know what is going to happen. The story of Niko and Ava had me feeling frustrated, happy and everything in between.

Cora Kenborn is the best at keeping your mind twisted so you have no idea what is happening until she wants you to know. If you love dark mafia stories, you don't want to miss this one.

Bratva Princess Ava is definitely not what everyone expected her to be. Growing up as the daughter of a Russian Cartel Boss, she's underestimated, and now is in trouble involving the FBI. Ava and Niko fell in love years ago, until her father found a way to cause a rift between them, and tore them apart. Years later Niko is a soldier of the Cavalieri Della Morte, and is sent on a mission. The attraction between Ava and Niko is still there, but with all the secrets, twists and turns this book keep ...more

I'm a southern girl living her dream. A writer of romantic suspense and contemporary romance fiction, my characters live in my head and won't leave me alone until I tell their stories, so I just obey them.

I create worlds with strong, sassy heroines, larger than life bad boys, and a lot of snarky banter.
