Product Description

Ashley Carter thought she had the perfect life as the loving and supportive wife to her upcoming attorney husband. Marrying her high school sweetheart and moving to Chicago to start a life with him seemed perfect, until she ends up walking in on him with another woman. Determined to start her life over after always sacrificing herself, she attends the grand opening of a new club in town with her best friend. She went expecting to have a good time, what she didn’t expect was to meet Dominic Michaels.


Dominic Michaels is the owner operator of a string of BDSM clubs, The Celtic Knot. He displays control and power over everything in his life, especially his women. Having suffered through a tragic event at a young age, he never allows a woman to remain a part of his life beyond the bedroom, that is until he meets Ashley Carter.

Can the love of a woman loosen the knots of control that Dominic securely holds on to?
Sometimes it is hard to make the shift from control to surrender.

***Intended for Mature Audiences Only****

Ashley's Bend is book 1 in the Celtic Knot Series. Book 2, Figure Eight, and Book 3, Triquetra are available now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Twists and turns on every page 19 May 2014

Ashley's Bend started as many do is this genre, but unlike a lot that I have read, this one has suspense and mystery built in. The character development of not just 2 but 4 main characters has you wondering if there will more instore not just for Nic and Ashley but their closest friends as well. The story takes you to a place that you just don't see coming and that will have you turning the page just a fast as you can read. You will find yourself carrying the book with you to sneak in a page or two here and there. I wish more writers were like Cassy, don't just develop the relationship side of the story, but throw in a little mystery as well and not your typical mystery either!
4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed it! 10 October 2014

What would you do? You are having trouble with your husband. He works all hours, when he is home you two fight all the time, and you wonder what happened to the love you both felt 8 years ago when you first got married. You plan to surprise him at the office with some Chinese food and when you enter his office ... you find the SOB doing his secretary on his desk! What WOULD you do?

This is how our book begins. It is the end of life that is totally unsatisfying for Ashley. She is now ready to begin the rest of her life. From that moment on this book will keep you glued to its pages.

Discovering a new lifestyle with BDSM and Master Dominic brings a new perspective, as well as a lot of confusion for Ashley. One thing is for sure... the attraction is incendiary!

I really enjoyed this book. The writing style is easy with enough description to paint the picture of what is happening in your mind without being overbearing. These characters are very real.

OMG! Ashley and Dominic's story was quite a roller coaster ride! The Celtic Knot is a BDSM Club, and Dominic and Knox are co-owner Doms. This book does end in a cliffhanger, so be warned, and ready to get the next book cos you're gonna have to find out what happens!!!! This book includes a brooding Dom and a beautiful woman. Ashley who's high school sweetheart husband cheats on her with his secretary, and she walks in on it in his office, literally caught in the act! He soon becomes her ex husband! Dominic had a bad childhood, and after being around is parents he decided to never fall in love, so he uses the club subs whenever he needs sex to avoid having a relationship. There is a really good energy and sexual attraction between Ashley and Dominic. There are a lot of things going on in the background of the story. Her Ex is causing trouble, and one of the people at the club is causing problems too.
This book has a bit of everything in it, hot sex with a Dom that is sex on a stick, suspense, angst, love and mystery.
I am impressed with Cassy Roop's ability to weave an interesting story that kept me engaged throughout the whole book, and I can't wait to see what happens in the next book! She writes with feeling and is able to weave the story in a way that you never see the twists and turns coming! No I didn't like the cliffhanger of this book, only cos I am greedy when I get into a book, and I want to know what is going to happen right now. Yes, I am hooked on this series, so sign me up for the next book, my one clicker finger is poised and ready for action!!!!

This is one of my genre's I LOVE. I have to say Celtic Knot series has a lot of promise! In fact I bought this and just had to go buy Figure 8 and read back to back. This story has a lot of twist and turns and takes you for a ride. The story line was great and wasn't just about the characters being all over each other.

I highly recommend starting this series and it's a great price. I'll be watching for more in this series and see what else Cassy Roop has to offer in the future :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Um...What just happened??!!! I feel like I was hit by a train!!! 15 May 2014
By Judi Perkins - Published on Amazon.com

This book was so AMAZING that it's taken me a few days to post it...since I still don't know exactly what I want to say...

First of all...GET THIS BOOK AND READ IT!!! This book will take you on an incredible journey in both his and hers POV!!

Ashley was the innocent and sweet small town girl all of her life...that's until she moves to Chicago and her life gets turned upside down. When her friends invite her to the exclusive club opening of The Celtic Knot...her true journey really begins

Dominic, owner of The Celtic Knot is a Master Dominant in the bedroom as well as every other aspect of his life...the only thing he doesn't have control of is Ashley...

Dominic is HAWT!! The man is smoking and I could not get enough of him. One quote in the book in particular, really puts it into perspective.... "Oh, honey pie, I would lick the tires of that man's car if he asked me to. Have you seen him? All hunky beefed up muscle. Don't even get me started on his gorgeous eyes and hair. Oh, and his ass could crack walnuts!" Yup, that about sums up Dominic...I need more!!

The secondary characters were just as awesome! Kelly & Knox are the perfect sidekicks and I'm really hoping these two will have their own book as well!!

This book is a series and there is one serious cliffhanger that left me with one of the biggest book hangovers I've had so far this year, but it was absolutely worth it!!

Cassy Roop does an amazing job with this, her first erotica!! She has knocked it out of the ballpark and Figure Eight can not come fast enough for me!! I will be One-Clicking the minute it goes live!!!
