Figure Eight- A strong, secure knot that jams under pressure.

He was betrayed by the one person to loosen the knots of his control.

She sacrificed her love to protect him.

Blackmailed into destroying the man she desperately fell in love with, Ashley (Carter) Woodson tries desperately to cling to hope that Dominic will one day understand her reasons for her betrayal and stop the one person determined to keep them apart.

False accusations send Dominic Michaels into a legal battle involving The Celtic Knot and emotional turmoil from the devastation that Ashley caused him. The battle between his head and his heart makes picking up the pieces of his life difficult while he fights to escape the haunting memories of the only woman to break his control.

When outside forces conspire against them, will Dominic be able to unravel the ropes on his heart to trust Ashley again?

What happens when love exists on the edge between finished and infinity?

Sexy, suspenseful and overall absolutely brilliant;  Cassy Roop has done it again with Figure Eight, Book 2 in the Celtic Knot series.  I loved Ashley's Bend but Figure Eight takes the emotion to a whole new level.  If you haven't read Ashley's Bend, I highly suggest you go out and purchase a copy right now and do not continue reading this review.

In Ashley's Bend, Dominic Michaels, Owner and Dominant at the Celtic Knot in Chicago falls head over heels in love with Ashley, a recent divorcee and submissive in training at the Celtic Knot.  The two find something inside one another that they have never had with anyone else. Ashley is fresh out of a marriage where she couldn't have anything she wanted, she wanted a baby and instead she got a husband who was doing his secretary and was more content at work than he was at home with a woman that loved him.  Dominic refuses to let women in, he's never been in love.  He saw what being in love with his father did to his mother and he's sworn off relationships.  He finds his pleasure in the female form and has sex a lot to get his mind off his feelings.

That is until Ashley tears down his walls and makes him fall in love with her only to be betrayed beyond measure at the end of Ashley's Bend.  Dominic is shredded emotionally.  He's never felt this way not by a long shot for a woman.  How could he let someone so close only to have them destroy him so thoroughly.  In jail for his supposed crimes, Dominic fights for his life, his best friend Knox' life and also for the life of his clubs across the country.  Not only was his heart destroyed but his livelihood as well when Ashley betrayed him and turned him in at the end of Ashley's Bend.  Now Dominic is left to try to put his life back together, get out of jail and try to forget he ever met Ashley, but that will be easier said than done.  The woman is like a poison to his psyche.  He can't shake her and worse he doesn't really want to. 

When these two come together in Figure Eight, the sex is even more explosive than it was in Ashley's Bend.  They are positively on fire for one another.  Every touch, every naughty act, brings the other to heel and will have you absolutely panting for what comes next.  The ending is gasp worthy and will knock the air from your lungs.  But, rest assured there is a book 3 and an HEA coming our way. Ashley is friends with Rownan, a Dominant that we met in Ashley's Bend.  He becomes the only person she can trust and wait till you see how Dominic reacts to this new turn of events. All I can say is she better end up with Dominic!

Cassy Roop is a master story teller and a Queen in my book at suspense.  She had me on the edge of my seat.  I haven't devoured a book in a day and a half in a while but I just couldn't put Figure Eight down.  I love Dominic and Ashley and I can't wait to see what happens and how it all plays out in Triquetra, Book 3!
