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.

Sometimes it is hard to make the shift from control to surrender.

5.0 out of 5 stars What A Wild Ride! 10 June 2014
By Jennifer Laslie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Wow, what a wild ride! Loved it and seriously can't wait for Figure Eight! Write faster Cassy!

This isn't your regular fifty shades of grey.

Ashley thought she had the perfect life until she caught her husband cheating on her. She had put her life to the side burner while her husband had followed the career path that he wanted. She'd given up everything.

Her friend has an invitation to an exclusive new club in town and in order to take her mind off of everything she decides "what the hell" and goes. She was NOT expecting the new club to be a BDSM club.

That's where she meets Dominic. He makes her feel things she's never experienced with another man. She had no idea that she could feel this way towards another man. Especially not so soon after finding her husband cheating on her. Though her and her husband had been drifting apart as he worked long hours at the office. Long hours banging his secretary more like it.

Ashley decides to throw caution to the wind and finally concedes to Dominic's relentless pursuit to get her to sign up for the submissive training class at the club.

That's when things get wild as she discovers who will be her trainer.

She's not sure if she can give her his heart and he's not sure of the same exact thing, but both are willing to give it a try.

But something happens both inside and outside the club that causes Ashley to have to do what she can do save her friends as well as Dominic, but it's still at the cost of betraying him.

This book definitely has a cliffhanger. I'll warn you, but it was totally worth the read! I cannot wait for Figure Eight!

5.0 out of 5 stars Do you accept and submit? Or reject and commit? 24 July 2014
By Jamie hamaker - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
What do you do when you find your high school sweetheart and husband of 7 years screwing his secretary? Cry, get mad, and then go to a sex club, of course!!

Ashley had no clue what she was walking into when she accepted her best friend’s invitation to go to a new club’s opening. Walking into The Celtic Knot she was surrounded by a whole new world that aroused her, yet terrified her. Enter Dominic, owner of The Celtic Knot and Master at the club.

After Dominic uses Ashley in a demonstration and finds out she isn’t a submissive he gets mad. He doesn’t do relationships and especially with someone who doesn’t live the BDSM lifestyle. That’s when Ashley decides to join the submissive training program .... and everything hits the fan. There are many obstacles in the way. Both have things in their past that make them weary and one moment they are tearing at each other’s clothing, the next pushing the other away.

Emotions run high. You’ll find yourself on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next. Honestly, I thought the bad guy was one person, and to find right in the end it was someone totally different was just jaw dropping, slam the book down and scream "NO!!!" And then BAM! Cliffhanger, baby! But what a cliffhanger. I did not see it coming. I honestly don’t know why or where it’s coming from and I need more!!

Let's finish this in the sequel: Figure Eight!!

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

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Would you accept an invitation to The Celtic Knot? 12 May 2014
By Tiffany Williams - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was so good! After finding out that her marriage wasn't what she thought it was, Ashley Carter decided that she needed a change and she needed it quick! So, she takes an invitation from her two best friends to attend the grand opening of a brand new club called The Celtic Knot.
What she found there was even more of a shock.

Ashley caught the eye of the club's owner and he vowed that she would be his. The chemistry between Ashley and Dominic was hot! I mean, wipe your brow, adjust your collar, squirm in your seat hotness!!

This story takes you on some twists and turns. You learn who is truly by your side through it all and who could possibly tear it all down.

Cassy takes you on a journey into a world you might not know about, but you will now...

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars for Super-Hot Read! 2 June 2014
By Babu's Bookshelf - Published on

Danielle's Review
Cassy Roop’s “Ashley’s Bend” is a super-hot read. Dominic, the leading man, is a sexykins. The story is loaded with hot nookie. Ashley, the leading lady, suffers through a cheating ex, which makes you understand her character and some of the wild choices she makes. The end of this book isn’t the end of the story, so I’m trying to wait patiently for the conclusion! There is definitely the potential for a good series here. 4.5 out of 5
