About this ebook

She left the mob family behind when she went into law enforcement.
Then she was kidnapped by a sinfully sexy stranger.
He wants her to do his bidding at the police station…and in the bedroom.
He claims he’s helping her mobster father…but she soon finds out he has darker motives.

"Cunning and ruthless... Knox is the definition of alpha male."

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.

3.75 stars--KNOX is the third instalment in Cassia Leo’s contemporary, adult POWER PLAYER erotic, romance series. This is billionaire CEO of Knox Security Knox Savage (aka Marco Leone), and mob princess / police evidence intake officer Rebecca Veneto’s story line. KNOX can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. KNOX was originally released as a four-part serial in 2014. NOTE: KNOX contains scenes of graphic violence, as well as Domination and submission, punishment and bondage that may not be suitable for all readers. Told from three first person perspectives (Knox, Rebecca and August) KNOX follows the rekindling relationship between billionaire CEO of Knox Security Knox Savage (aka Marco Leone), and mob princess / police evidence intake officer Rebecca Veneto. As the only daughter and child of John Veneto , the head of the Veneto Crime Family, Rebecca can lay claim to witnessing things that have affected her life, and her less than stellar relationship with her father and mother. A ghost from the past will come back into Rebecca’s life in the hopes of settling a score for sins long ago. Enter billionaire CEO of Knox Security-Knox Savage aka Marco Leone-the man with whom Rebecca will fall in love. What ensues is the rebuilding relationship and romance between Rebecca and Knox, and the potential fall-out as Rebecca is pulled back into the life she left long ago. Knox has waited ten years for the woman that has called to his heart but ten years in which he has planned for the destruction of the man that destroyed his life. With the upcoming trial of Rebecaa’s father John Venetto, Knox is hoping to secure his release in an effort to find the man responsible for the loss of life that set him on a path towards vengeance and death. Rebecca Veneto just wants to forget about what happened and why but the reappearance of Marco Leone, the man now calling himself Knox Savage, brings with it too many memories of a time long ago. The relationship between Knox and Rebecca is one of second chances of a sorts: years earlier, a then fifteen year old Rebecca fell in love with Marco Leone but Marco’s path lay before him, a path from which he would lay out the foundations of his future life. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense. We are introduced to Rebecca’s father, Crime Lord John Veneto; her long suffering mother Marie; co-worker Tracy Warner; bestie Lita, and Rebecca’s ex-boyfriend August Simmons. The requisite evil has many faces. KNOX is a story of family, vengeance, second chances and love. The fast paced premise is engaging and edgy; the romance is spicy and hot; the characters are sassy, flirty and strong. KNOX is a dramatic and passionate look at mafia-style romance.
