Ashley’s Bend-a knot used to securely join the ends of two ropes together.

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


WTH!!! I had no idea this book was a cliffy!

I need Book two NOW!........

Ashley is 25yrs old and married to her high school sweetheart. She works 2 jobs supporting her husbands dream of becoming an attorney. She has out her schooling and dreams on the back burner. There marriage is on the rocks and she finds him cheating on her with his secretary. Ashley's best friend Kelly invites her that night to a grand opening to an exclusive club, The Celtic Knot. Ashley decides to go and was very surprised that it is a BDSM club. She has always had a vanilla sex life with her ex husband, but deep done she know she needs and wants to break out of her shell. 

The owner Dominic, pulls her up on stage for a lesson. The attraction between them was instant. Dominic wanted Ashley. He wanted her to be his submissive. Dominic offers Ashley a submissive training class where he would train her. Ashley was Leary at first bc she just got out of a divorce and wasn't looking for a relationship. Dominic assures her hes not looking for a relationship, he just wants to teach her new things and let her be pleasured. During the process Dominic can't get enough of Ashley and he doesn't like the shit he's feeling for her. He has never in his life cared for a woman or showed any affection to one.

But with Ashley it's different. He starts pushing Ashley away as his feelings started getting stronger for her. He was hot and cold with her and it started confusing her as well. 
She knew they had a connection and she was feeling more. 

During this time the club gets vandalized and gets threatening notes regarding Ashley. Dominic goes in protective mode and does everything he can to keep her safe. 

Around this time was when I was drawn to book. It had a lot of twist and turns and was a pulled into the story. Right when things were getting good the book ended. With a cliffy!!!

Overall, I got into the story about half way in. I did find it hard that she agreed to go out the same night she catches her cheating husband and how sudden she agreed to the training so quick after her divorce. Other than that it was a good read. Dominic is a bossy, hot Dom! 

He is kinky and seeing him open up to Ashley makes you love him! 

The ending will leave you mad and crazy!:)
