...huh? What the hell did I just read? Here's the blurb:
Knox Volume 1 by Cassia Leo
From New York Times bestselling author Cassia Leo comes a sinfully sexy and suspenseful new series.
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.
Rebecca thought she left the crime family behind when she went into law
enforcement. She never expected to be abducted by a sexy stranger. But
this stranger makes an offer too tempting to refuse and soon Rebecca is
pulled into one of the most ruthless vendettas of the century.
Savage is the sexy billionaire CEO of Knox Security and a notorious
playboy. What most don’t know about Knox is that a large portion of his
wealth is made 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 is going to
get very personal.
torn because Cassia Leo did an amazing plotting job, but I did not like
her characters. Becky's Ordinary World is insane! Her father's a mob
boss whom she witnessed kill a man when she was a teen. Ten years later,
she's left her family and the life for a career in law enforcement
-awesome right! But she also left behind her crush. But Becky's put all
that behind her and has a stable relationship with a stable man. Until
her past comes and literally drags her back to her roots. Becky allows
herself to be dragged and makes some truly stupid choices (and she
agrees they are stupid choices) because this man, Knox, reminds her of
that childhood crush.
Knox is an asshole. Not an alpha hole. An
ass. Now, you can tell me what to do, lover. However, if you raise your
voice at me and you get up in my face there will be problems. Knox, that
ain't sexy and I couldn't muster an ounce for this dude. At every turn I
was ready to put this book down, but the way Leo plotted it I couldn't.
I wanted to know what happened next, and after that I'd put it down.
But then I found myself at the end of the book.
I disagreed with
the cliffhanger she used. I don't know how to say anything about it
without spoiling it. It was unexpected in an I don't care kind of way.
There were so many other plot lines Leo introduced that would have sent
me to purchasing the other book. This one she choice was the only one
that she hadn't made me care about.
