Welcome!

Welcome to InAshleysWorld – the blog!

I got my tagline from a family friend who was trying to justify my actions. She basically said that In Ashley’s World, it is simply okay. It is okay to wear giant bows in my hair. It is okay to persuade someone play a game or participate in a group activity. It is okay to never follow a cooking recipe and use it more as a “rough” guideline. It is okay to tweet authors about their novels. It is okay to have more in common with an eight year old. It is okay to demand a “no- phone zone” when you are with friends. It is okay to use body lotion infused with glitter. It is okay to paint my nails on Wednesdays AND on Sundays. It is okay to be me.

InAshleysWorld has become a way for me to identity with who I am. To remind myself, I do not have to fit into the molds and stereotypes of society- I can be me. With this blog, I am not going to tell you what you should buy, or how you can look like me. I am not going to teach you how to do something or what you should do to better your life. I am not going to pretend that I know everything.

What I will do, is let you into my world and show what makes me ME. I am going to rant and rave about the things that come up in my daily life. I am going to share the visual creations that come out of my kitchen. I am going to talk about the books and the stories that I have taken an imaginary journey with. I am going to be me.

Read. Like. Follow. or don’t, the choice is yours.

I am Ashley and this is InAshleysWorld.

Today we have the blog tour for M.H.B.’s new romance, Fairytale Wrath! Check it out and be sure to get your copy today!

Title: Fairytale Wrath

Author: M.H.B

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Fairytale Wrath:

They say all men are monsters…

Money means power and power gives your skeletons a taste for retribution

They came for me

Suffocating me, dragging me to my knees

Using my past and my future as a double weapon against me

…I’m not a monster…

Lily Carter envisioned a beautiful fairy tale

But perfect is an illusion

And so, a veil of nightmares stood between us and our happy ending

Leading the dormant beast inside my head to awaken after all

But I will protect what’s mine…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars!

I dove head first into this story and didn’t come up for air until it was done! I really enjoyed the main character, Lily, she was strong and independent and knew what she wanted! It’s hard to find that kind of heroine these days. She wanted the man, but she didn’t NEED him. I very much enjoyed the connection Linc and Lily shared, often I felt like I was the fly in the middle of the room! I have never read this author before, but my attention was held all through out the story, so I call that a win!

Title: The Bargain
Author: R.G. Angel
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: November 15, 2020
A mistaken identity romance. 
When a hard knock raps on her door, Amber Collins doesn’t want to answer it. 
She knows it’ll be a battle she won’t be able to win.
At twenty-one years old, she’s struggling to make ends meet, but she would endure anything for her six month old nephew whose big green eyes bring a smile to her face on the worst of days. 
And today is the worst of them all. 
As the knock turns into a deafening bang, she steels herself to confront the rich, powerful, and chillingly handsome Dean Beaumont. The baby’s uncle who most certainly has come to take him away from her. Deceiving him was the only way. 
Now, she’s being taken to his country estate for six months to prove she’s a fit mother. As time goes by, Amber finds herself with another fight on her hands, the need to safeguard her heart from the ruthless but charismatic Beaumont. The closer she gets to him, the more she wants him to know the real her. Not the drug addict hooker her sister was. But if she tells him the truth, she will lose the baby and him forever…

I really feel hard for these characters! There was so much depth and plot, I got sucked into this story big time! R.G Angel created a unique storyline I was very much intrigued in how this story would develop, and I was not disappointed!

I very much enjoyed reading this author’s work! I don’t always identify with a story so strongly but there was a ‘pretty woman’ vibe about this one that I just loved!

Title: The Test
Series: The 4Horsemen #2
Author:
Elena Monroe
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: November 4, 2020
He was the Golden Boy until she tarnished him… 
I woke up to my roommate and best friend missing. In her place was a note on my bedside table that read: You can only find me with your eyes closed. 
No one thinks a note like that is meant for them. 
I knew it was meant for me, a clue, a way to seek Justice
Whoever left me that note was hoping I didn’t let my parent’s legacy die when they did. They wanted to see what kind of warfare I was capable of. 

Justice before starting a war with the man who wrote the rule book… 
I woke up every day to the same nonsensical bullshit that was my life. 
They say only bad things only happen after dark but I was the exception to every rule. I was bad and I happened whenever I wanted. 
I wanted someone to challenge me, put me in my place, force me to be better than war strategies and hold the audacity to traipse across enemy lines. 
A pink haired receptionist wasn’t my first choice for shaking my resolve. 
I can still smell her but I wanted to know if she’d taste like Victory.

Death before dishonor meant not losing to her…

EXCERPT

Answering the phone, I held onto my breath, when I heard an older woman’s voice come through. “So, you’re the guy responsible for her bad attitude.”
A nervous laugh erupted from me. I had never dated anyone long enough to give them the idea that I would want to speak to anyone important to them.
Besides her.
“I’m so glad you called me back…” The Clave mask slipped back into place, polishing all my stained edges in the hopes of impressing her.
“Didn’t give me much of a choice, since you’ve been calling me every day. Is there something I can help you with?” Her voice showed her age, but her mouth was a family heirloom passed down to Justice.
“I love Justice very much. I wanted to express this to you and prove that I deserve her hand in marriage.”
Laughter poured in from the other end of the phone. “You don’t take no for an answer, do you? If she wanted to marry you, I don’t think she would have evacuated LA like a natural disaster was headed her way.”
“Respectfully, no. I don’t lose gracefully.”
“Go on. I’m gonna need to hear you express those feelings,” she said, but not with an iron fist. Her voice sounded tired and worried for Justice.
“Okay… I’m not a great person, but I’m a better person because of her. I want to be good enough to deserve her.”
“Oh, honey, she wasn’t always a good person either and don’t you let her forget it. Wicked girls like her can’t forget to be humble…”

I really enjoyed the character set up and the overall plot! I haven’t read anything from this angle before and was very much intrigued! The more I read though, the more Temple and Sin’s feelings felt fake to me. I don’t know if it was because the pace and timeline of the story was really fast or that I just couldn’t connect to them as characters. I did like the idea of twins, and both fathers were pretty twisted, but this story missed the mark for me.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars!

I adore this author’s work, she always spins the plots in a way I don’t see coming! I was reading, I was reading…and then it ended. I sat back in my chair and said “wow”. Addiction is a tough subject to cover especially since it’s a struggle in today’s world, but man, do I think CM Radcliff nailed the character’s emotions! I felt like I was with the main character and everything she was facing. While I wish she leaned on her friends a little more, I’m very anxious for the companion story!

You tricked me once, but you won’t trick me twice.

Trick Me Twice is a standalone new adult high school romance with bullying and enemies to lovers themes. This book contains mature situations and content.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars!

There were parts of this story I enjoyed and then parts I really struggled with. I almost stopped reading when that final twist was revealed….since to me, it seemed a little out there, but in the end, it was a nice Halloween themed tale. I was hoping for more bulling a little more darker themes, but these characters were nice together. I enjoyed the tension and the feelings between them.

Wow. There is so much in this story, and I became so invested. Margaret McHeyzer did a phenomenal job with this story. There were some difficult-to-read parts covering some heavy themes, but everything progressed in such a captivating way, I just couldn’t put this story down. The story took me on a journey of a young woman’s struggle with food, and I feel this author represented the issue in a very emotional real way.
This author has a knack for writing about present issues in our world and I absolutely admire and adore her for it!
AUTHOR BIO
I’m Margaret and I’m a self-published author.
Recently I was fortunate in obtaining New York Times best-selling status on my YA/NA book – Ugly, and my YA book – Mistrust.
My last six books have been YA and I’m completely in love with the genre. I love being able to communicate with people through my words and stories.
My writing genres all differ, but the one thing I keep consistent is my heroines. All my female lead characters are strong, gutsy and not the ‘perfect’ woman. While my books all have romantic elements in them, they aren’t just about the romance. They’re about finding strength, acceptance and making life long connections.
I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have while writing them.
