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.

Author’s Note: The Sekten Series is a dark romance series that needs to be read in order. It is intended for mature audiences since there is a lot of graphic content, and it might not be suitable for you if you are easily triggered. Some books will be darker than others, but all are triggering none the less. This is a dark world, so read at your own discretion.



Claudia lives in the Chicagoland suburbs, and when she’s not busy chasing after her adorable little spawn, she’s fighting with the characters in her head. After not being able to keep up with them, she decided enough was enough and wrote her first novel. C. Lymari writes both sweet and dark romances that will give you all the feels. Her other talents include binge watching shows on Netflix and eating all kinds of chips.

EXCERPT

He warned me about the monsters. How many more hide in this house?

“Cristina,” Damian says.

I keep turning, my body still pressed to Damian’s.

I’ve taken shelter in my enemy’s arms.

He’s in my periphery now. The monster. The brother. Tall, like Damian. I see the coat. It’s wet. He was the man walking back toward the house. It wasn’t Damian at all. What is out there that they go to see in the dead of night?

Dark hair.

Identical twins.

It’s easy to tell them apart now though.

My eyes finally find the monster’s eyes. My breath catches in my throat.

I remember when I was little, and I stared at Damian’s damaged hand. But this? This is worse.

Much worse.

His face…I see Damian in it. In half of it. The damage on the other half, no, not quite half. It’s from the corner of his eye back into his hairline. It’s like Damian’s hand, his arm.

Melted skin.

“Not as pretty as my brother, am I?”

⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars!!

This was a very interesting read. I did read it from start to finish but I have so many questions… I feel like there should have been a second book to dissect all the emotions and scenarios that played out in this story. Without writing spoilers, I felt like this story was a little bit all over the place, there were certain sex scenes where I had to just stop and think for a minute at what in the world was happening! I was really hoping for an unhappily ever after here, the HEA just didn’t fit at all.

I’m not sure if I will pick up this author again, why me will not be leaving my head anytime soon…

Silva Hart grew up with a pair of teacher parents and no television. With this combo, who wouldn’t become a greedy reader? 

She loves spending hours penning scenes that fill her with emotion. She knows she’s succeeded when sweet, sexy Sir Silva tears up while she reads her stories to him.

Elephants are her spirit animal, and she’s convinced that every reader receives a trumpet of joy somewhere in the world every time they say good things about a Silva Hart book.

I thought I had life figured out: finish high school, go to college, and become a Pulitzer prize winning journalist with a passion for activism.
Simple, right?
Then, my smart mouth got me in trouble and I wound up as the tutor for cocky star athlete Gabriel Johnson. I expected him to be unbearable. Thankfully, I was proven wrong when he gifted me a glimpse of his charming, softer side.
What develops between us could truly be incredible … if he could shake off the persona others have cast him in. But when Gabriel finds his old patterns impossible to break, I’m faced with a gut-wrenching decision. If being with him means hiding, is that a price I am willing to pay? Or, will I break his heart and mine by walking away?

We connected in an instant.

Lived in a fantasy world where our bodies became one and nothing else existed.
But when reality intruded, that world came crashing down.
Life beyond the walls I’d sequestered myself behind summoned me, and I knew things would change.

The question was, would we both make it through unscathed, or would one of us have to make the ultimate sacrifice?
