Title: Knox – The Complete Series
Author: Cassia Leo
Series: Knox # 1-4
Rebecca hasn’t seen or heard from her mob boss father in four years, but she’s about to receive a message from him that will throw her life into chaos. She thought she left the crime family, and the painful memories, behind when she went into law enforcement. She never expected to be abducted by a smoking hot stranger. But when this stranger makes Rebecca an offer too tempting to refuse, she finds herself dragged into one of the most ruthless vendettas of the century.
Knox Savage is well known as the infuriatingly sexy CEO of Knox Security and a notorious bad boy. What most don’t know about Knox is that he loves helping high-profile criminals escape justice. He makes no judgments about guilt or innocence. And he doesn’t do it for sentimental reasons. But he’s about to take on a case that’s going to get very personal.
In true Cassia Leo fashion, this story had me hooked from the very beginning. I don’t read many serial novellas like this because I’m not a very patient person, but I’m even less patient when I have the chance to start something by an author I really like. This first installation introduces us to Rebecca, whose career in law enforcement is as far from her past and family as you can get. When her father needs her help, she is taken to a secure location and questioned by a handsome stranger. Knox is dangerous and mysterious and oh so sexy. The interaction between these two is electric and it adds another dimension to this intriguing story. The ending caught me by complete surprise. I’m pretty sure my jaw actually dropped. It was the kind of twist I love in a book, but then I remembered I had to wait for the second novella! Ahhh. I’m definitely going to keep reading to find out where this story takes Rebecca and Knox. Rating — 4 Stars
This installment picks up some time after the first one left off. The relationship between Knox and Rebecca has completely changed, kicking the steam factor up several notches. Some of the questions we were left with at the end of book 1 get answered and Rebecca begins to struggle with her decision to help her father. I had a hard time accepting how quickly Rebecca accepted the reemergence of her old life, surrounded by lies and violence and blackmail, but whether it is blood or love, family makes you do crazy things. Rebecca’s best friend Lita helps us get a better picture of the type of person Rebecca is and the life she has been living since walking away from her family. We also get to know Knox a little bit better, getting a glimpse into his life and his business. I loved seeing the fiery side of Rebecca come out as she challenged Knox and refused to be used as a simple puppet. I’m a huge fan of a strong and self-sufficient heroine. Just as Knox and Rebecca start to settle into the current lives, a familiar face reappears asking questions and Rebecca gets some unexpected news that changes everything. Once again Cassia Leo, leaves us hanging and begging for more Knox! Rating — 4 Stars
This was the most exciting installment of the story so far. Volume 3 is almost entirely from Knox’s point of view. I am so glad we got to get inside his head for a while. He is such a complex character and up until now his motives have remained somewhat of a mystery. His need for revenge is clear, but the details of the events leading to the moment that sealed Knox’s fate were a bit hazy. As the mystery of Knox’s past comes to light, the storyline begins to round itself out and we get to meet some key players. We finally get to see a bit of Rebecca’s father and get a feel for the type of man he is and how he feels about his daughter. I’m not usually big on serials unless I can get the whole story at once, because I tend to lose interest getting only a little piece of the story at a time. The complexity of the characters and the carefully crafter storyline in Knox has kept me coming back for more, anxiously awaiting the resolution to this story. Once again, Cassia leaves us with a shocking revelation and a “what the hell” moment to cling to while we await the final volume in Knox’s story. Rating — 4.5 Stars
The final volume of Knox’s story did not disappoint. After I was left hanging at the end of volume three, I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. I think this installment did a great job of closing up the story, answering our questions and putting to rest the chaos we volume three left us in the midst of. Not only did Cassia Leo clear up Rebecca and Knox’s story, but she also included an epilogue that takes place six years down the road. I love epilogues, and I love them even more when a significant amount of time has passed so that we can see where our favorite characters are at in their lives. It gives us the reassurance and the closure we all need to walk away from a story. I hated waiting for this final volume, I’m not really a very patient person, but I’m glad I started this story. Knox is an interesting and fun story that will take you for a ride on the emotional rollercoaster and keep you guessing right up to the end. Rating — 4 Stars
