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.

“Fairytale Vacations – where it’s our job to make your dreams come true!”
They promised me a vacation,
One I’d never forget.
And I won’t.
Not ever.
Call it crazy.
Call it a whirlwind romance.
Call it whatever you want.
I certainly never expected to meet anyone, let alone fall for, actor Asher Charming,
On my honeymoon,
The one I planned with someone else.
But sometimes fate, or fairy godmothers, step in, and things change.
For one week, I found love in a man I never saw coming.
I’m Ella and this is my story…

An InAshleysWorld review: 

3.5 stars!! 

This was a one click read for me! I adore Cinderella stories. I was sucked in from the first few moments and I LOVED, Loved chapter 3! The middle of the story was so so, leaving me slightly bored with the cliche ‘getting to know each other’ jargon. I really wanted more drama! The beginning started off so strong… I was hoping it would carry throughout the story, but I enjoyed the very last few paragraphs very much! Jennifer Miller is not a new author to me, and actually I have read most of her work. She is spot on with details in describing scenes but sometimes I feel certain areas are over detailed making it difficult to remember what the point is. I really enjoyed the independence and personality of the main female lead. She was real, honest, and her snarky comments were excellent!  Charming was a sweet story, with amusing characters, and a happily ever after plot.

Acadian Waltz 

Title: Acadian Waltz
Author: Alexandrea Weis
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Suspense
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR


Blurb:
At thirty, Nora Kehoe is feeling pressured to settle down. Then, a passionate encounter with a childhood friend changes everything.

The charismatic Jean Marc Gaspard manages the family fishing business, but rumors abound that Jean Marc is running more than seafood through the waters around Manchac Louisiana. And as Jean Marc tries to protect Nora from his murky past, he realizes he may lose her because of it.

The dark bayou waters run deep with secrets, and every Cajun knows how to dance the fine line between the right and wrong side of the law. But learning the steps to staying alive in the swamps can be tricky. Life, and love, will be dependent on how well one can master the … Acadian Waltz.

Woah woah woah! That ending was practically a kindle toss moment! Who ends a story like that?! Alexandrea Weis- does, that’s who. AND IT WORKS! This woman is a writing God! I adore all her stories! The Acadian Waltz is no exception here! This story isn’t as dark or as erotic as her newer stuff but this was a very mind boggling read! The characters were interesting, having stepped out of society’s gender roles ( she was the independent one, and he was the complainer)! My mouth was hanging open on more than one occasion and that fact alone is why I LOVE this woman’s stuff! 
The Acadian waltz ended beautifully with true mushy gushy moments! I’m already looking for another read by Alexandrea Weis !!

An InAshleysWorld review: 

This was my first L.P. Dover book and wow was it ever a good one! There were so many twists turns bumps in the road I was anxious to read when the characters finally got their HEA. 

This author is a wonderful writer and has certainly researched her topics for a maximum real life story! All through reading I was thinking of a certain “friends” episode ( you’ll know which on it is once you read!) and if just made me love the story even more! 

Last Chance was a second chance romance, with EXCELLENT characters and amazing suspense and content build up! I was sucked right into this story and it was such a wonderful read! I will most certainly be getting more books from this author!

“Why can’t I go in there and tell her I’m sorry? She needs to hear it from me.”

“No, she doesn’t because she won’t believe it. You need to do a lot more than tell her you’re sorry. Actions speak louder than words. And until you can show everyone you’ve changed, it’s best you stay away from her. It’ll only make things worse.”


“What if I go in there anyway?” I questioned, crossing my arms over my chest. I didn’t want to fight Evan, but I was getting desperate. I needed her forgiveness, for her to know I never meant to hurt her.


Evan huffed and closed his eyes. “You’ll have to go through me first. Lara doesn’t want to see you. She’s with someone else now.”


It was as if someone had sucker punched me in the gut, the air being ripped out of my lungs as I took the hit. Summer groaned and I glared at her. “Is that true?”


“Yes, but I don’t see how that is any of your business. She’s happy, so leave her be.”


“Fuck that,” I shouted. “I’m going inside.” I tried to push past Evan, but he blocked me. We faced off with each other, the tension rising.


Summer stepped between us with a hand on each of our chests. “Guys, this is stupid. You’re friends.”


I scoffed and backed away. “That’s where I beg to differ,” I said, glaring at Evan. “If our situations were reversed and it was Summer inside, I’d let you go to her. I would give you the benefit of the doubt and accept that you’ve changed. But you’re not going to do that, are you?”


Evan’s face softened and he sighed. “I would, brother, but this night is special for Summer and Lara. The last thing they need is you and Grayson battling it out. I have no doubt he’ll come after you if you go in there.”


I faltered, the anger welling in my chest. “Fucking Grayson? That’s who she’s with?”


“Can you blame her? He was there for her, after everything you put her through,” Summer said.


Peering down at her, I hoped she could see the determination in my face. “You tell her it’s not over. I’m not going to give up.” With those final words, I jumped in my truck and sped out of the parking lot. The thought of Grayson touching her made me so goddamn furious. I didn’t care if she was with him . . . I wasn’t going to give up.

His Dark Canvas was an EXCELLENT read! I’m no stranger to Alexandrea Weis or her Corde Nior Society series! I was so excited learn Ren has his own story and I was even more excited to read it!! His Dark Canvas was amazing! Full of hidden desires, food, and paint! Oh and sex! It wouldn’t be part of the Corde Nior society without a rich devilish guy and some black rope! 
The characters in this story really developed throughout, especially Ren, it seemed every chapter I was learning something new about him.

Through the haze of her apple martinis, Ella spotted someone across the wide dining room. He was different from the other patrons there to celebrate the restaurant’s two-year anniversary. With an arrogant walk, he strutted across the stone floor. Lean, muscular, and blessed with one of those bodies women would always notice, he had dark blond hair and disquieting dark green eyes. He was the kind of guy who knew he was good-looking and let everyone else know it, too. She wasn’t usually attracted to that type, but this man—his confidence intrigued her.

“You’re Ella, Ella Winston,” he said in a voice like dark chocolate fondue: deep, and wickedly sexy. 

“Yeah.” She almost dropped her drink. “I’m the sous chef.”

“I know. Marcus told me.”

As his smile sank to the depths of her belly, he extended his hand, but Ella ignored it.

Don’t touch him. You know what happens when you touch them. 

“So, how do you know Marcus?” Ella quickly asked, hoping to make up for her rudeness.

He laughed, looking her over. Above the din in the room, she could sense something different about his laugh. Unlike the insincere chortle of others, this man’s laugh got to her. 
She was having an unusual physical reaction, something that never happened to her. When most men laughed, Ella usually ran away.

“Marcus and I share the same friends.”

“What friends are those?” she asked, craving another martini.

“The wealthy kind, who like to support the arts.” He raised a green bottle of sparkling water in his hand. “I’m a painter. Marcus and I know a lot of people who like to pretend they’re patrons and keep us gainfully employed.”

“Painter?” Ella shrugged, finding it hard to believe Marcus knew any painters. “What do you paint?”

“Portraits of women. Usually with very little clothing.”

Oh yeah, I need another drink. “Is that lucrative?”

“For me it is.”

Her eyes wandered around the dining room, desperate to find a rescue. Ella needed to get away from this man before she said or did something really stupid.

“Do you like art?” he pressed.

“Some art. I think it would depend on the passion I see in a painting.”

“The passion in a painting?” That laugh again. Her toes tingled. Not good. “You sound like a painter, Ms. Winston.”

The martini glass in her hand suddenly weighed a ton. “Isn’t painting a passion for an artist, like cooking is a passion for a chef? Having a passion is a healthy thing. It reminds us that we have a soul.”

    He nodded, seemingly approving of her drunken ramblings. “That’s very profound and also very true. I think you have a lot of talents yet to be discovered, Ella. May I call you Ella?”

“Ah, sure. Ella is fine.” Her mouth went dry. “What makes you think I have any talents outside of cooking?”

“I have a sense for these things.”

She tensed. Can he tell? The same thought always haunted her when she met new people. Ella fought so hard to keep her secret under control. Time to make a run for it.

“Don’t let Marcus know I have other talents. He’ll probably fire me.”

She was about to depart when he stopped her. He leaned in, and she could just make out the small cleft in his pointy chin. “I promise, if you ever need a job, I’ll hire you.”

His mouth was so close she could have kissed his perfect, thin lips. Frightened by the notion, Ella backed away. “I’ll hold you to that.”

“I hope you do, Ella.”

She should have done a million different things: asked his name, gotten his phone number, or stayed to flirt with him some more. Instead, Ella walked away. She figured it was one of those moments in life she would live to regret. Fortunately, Ella found the bar and drowned her disappointment in another apple martini. 

Ella reasoned that was the way of it. You meet people and move on, and one day, if you’re lucky, you meet the interesting ones again.

 An InAshleysWorld review of Dark Perception: 5 stars! 
Dark Perception was amazing! I got sucked in from the very first few words and I couldn’t put it down! I didn’t mean to read the entire book in one sitting! Dark Perception was not just another romance, it was so much more. With psychic/seers, spirits/ghosts and one very powerful man. It was by no means over the top, and learning about these “ghosts” were my favorite part! The characters were just wonderful, and I was certainly thrown for a loop with Nathan Cole (otherwise known as Sir). Alexandrea Weiss knew what she was doing while creating this story and her love for New Orleans definitely shines through!
 I got sucked into this story AND Nathan Cole( falling for his facade, I admit). Now, I’m sitting not so patiently for book 2… There was not a cliffhanger ending per say just an excellent opening for a continuation story. The writing was wonderful, a tad too descriptive in some parts, but I just loved the underlying themes of power, contentment, posessiveness, love and shame. This was a great read and I’m definitely looking for more from this author!
An InAshleysWorld review of Dark Attraction: 4.5 stars! 
Dark attraction by Alexandria Weis was a great read! I was totally captivated by Sebastian Dane and the fact that he is a Dom ( hehe).
Alexandrea has become my new favorite author, and I’m slowly reading through all her work!
Not only is her writing suburb, but she really takes the time to research her subject matter and it shows! Although, I loved this novel I personally wasn’t a fan of the end but that doesn’t mean Dark Attraction was a bad read!! I really felt for the characters and was intrigued to learn more about the Corde Noire Society! Now I’m going to have to wait until August for book 3, grrr.

Excerpt Reveal ! 

Excerpt:

The sun shone into the room, and it took me a few moments to realize where I was. I didn’t recognize the king-size bed, or the black sheets, but then Caden walked past the open door and all the memories flooded into place.

I slept at his place.

I glanced around the bed… I slept in his bed!

“Your alarm’s about to go off in ten minutes,” Caden called from the doorway. He had a cup of coffee in hand and wore only jeans.

I tried to keep my eyes front and center, but I lost. The tattoos were a nice little zig-zag pattern, pulling my gaze down, all the way down. Caden’s slow, smooth chuckle told me he knew what I’d just done. My cheeks only warmed a little.

I shot him a look, falling back to the pillow. “I feel like this should be the first skip day of my school career.”

“You’ve never skipped before?”

I shook my head, rolling it side to side on the pillow. “Am I missing out? Should I embrace my inner deviant?”

He smirked. “You can skip a class for any reason in the world. It’s your life.”

I sat up, eyeing that coffee. “You were supposed to be the bad influence.”

His eyebrow lifted. “I’m not selling it enough?” He lifted his cup. “You want some coffee?”

“I’m wondering if today is the day I try coffee too.”

“You’ve never had coffee?”

“I’m beginning to think I’m lame.” I thought about it. “Really lame.”

“You slept at some guy’s house last night. Think of it that way.” His smirk was back. “Not so lame now.”

I could do one better. “I slept at a fraternity house.”

“And you drank beer.”

“It was the second night in a row that I drank beer.”

“See? Not so lame after all.”

“You’re right.” I sat up. “I’m halfway to total badass.”

He grinned. “We cuddled last night, and you could think of it as dry humping. You almost got some last night.”

Except I hadn’t, and we were in the friend zone. Why were my hands curling around the covers into tight balls? I glanced down and forced them to loosen, then shrugged, trying to be the nonchalant badass I was.

“You carried me to bed. Almost the same thing.”

Suddenly, the joking was gone, and his eyes burned. I could feel his heat from across the room, and my body reacted, instantly warming even before he said a word.

“Nothing’s the same as sliding inside,” he murmured after a moment. “The feel of being in there, feeling that clench around you, knowing you can push as deep as you want, as hard or gently as you want. Nope. I’ve gotta step off the joke train for a moment here. Nothing is remotely the same as that feeling.”

Fuck. My pulse spiked.

He tossed me a look. “Maybe I’ll cop a feel the next time.”

I pretended to groan. “One more notch on my badass peg. You better cop a feel next time.”

“Is that all I am to you? A notch on the bedpost? I feel so used, Stoltz.”

Okay. My last name. We were back on familiar ground here. But my grin was still a little shaky.

“Get used to it, Banks. I’m only disguised as this plain Jane. Inside there’s a wild woman just waiting to be let loose.”

He didn’t reply.

He stared at me for a few more seconds, then straightened from the doorway. “There’s nothing plain about you, Summer.”

Blurb:    He told me to ‘settle, girl.’ 

He asked if ‘something was wrong with me?’ 

He said I was an ‘easy target.’ 

That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks. 

I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha. 
He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother. 
Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming.

Author Information


I didn’t begin writing until after undergraduate college. There’d been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can’t blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I’m hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories.

When everything goes wrong, who will be left to pick up the pieces and save Ford from a threat no one could have seen coming?
What will happen when they risk everything to save one?
 
An InAshleysWorld Review:
Casey bond has outdone herself with friction! The frenzy series is such a remarkable story, I devoured every word. When I heard there was a book 4, I lost every once of patience I process. Friction was out of this world amazing! I loved the tension between sisters, the jealousy between the men both human and night walker, and all the different twists the story took. The ending had me losing my mind! And not a cliche at all despite all the different supernatural characters included.

No Second Chances

Author: Marissa Farrar
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Gabi…

When I was seventeen years old, I was told to stay away from Cole Devonport. Kids like him only ever meant trouble. I should have listened, but I didn’t, and surprise, surprise, I was the one who got hurt. But escaping Cole didn’t mean the end of my pain. Life has a way of screwing me over, and after joining the Army as a way of forgetting him, I suffered a loss I’ll never recover from.
So now here I am, back in the town I ran away from, with my alcoholic father apparently looking after me.
The last thing I need is Cole showing up on my doorstep because nothing has changed—with his prison tattoos and don’t-screw-with-me edge, Cole Devonport still means trouble…
Cole…
I let everyone down all those years ago. I made mistakes and I’m not proud of them, but I’ve done my time and now I just want to keep my head down and get on with my life. I thought I was doing exactly that until I heard Gabriella Weston was back in town.
Despite what she thought, I was always in love with her. She might hate me, but whether she knows it or not, she also needs me.
I want to make it up to her, but with my past still trying to pull me down, perhaps it would be best if I just stayed the hell away like she keeps telling me to. Problem is, I can’t seem to resist her, and I’m the type of guy who always gets what he wants…
‘No Second Chances’ is a stand-alone, second chance, contemporary romance. It is a full length novel with no cliff-hanger!
aba1d-review
No Second Chances was a great second chance romance read! It was actually a pretty unique read and not like any other romance. I won’t tell you why though because I’m anti-spoiler!
Marissa Farrar is a new author for me but I just fell in love with her writing style! She had such fresh ideas for things that happened to the characters of her story! I haven’t read anything with the major psychological issues dealt with in this book so I was happy and excited for the new twist on love!
The characters were great and pretty well developed / thought out! The story line was amazing and intriguing. I had a teeny issue with the female lead toward the end with the way she handled the situation but I was able to overlook it! I’m so happy to have read this story and it will stay with me for a long while!
Marissa Farrar has always been in love with being in love. But since she’s been married for numerous years and has three young daughters, she’s conducted her love affairs with multiple gorgeous men of the fictional persuasion.
The author of more than twenty novels, she has been a full time author for the last six years. She predominantly writes paranormal romance and urban fantasy, but has branched into contemporary fiction as well.

BLACK SHEEP

A sexy, forbidden, standalone full of darkness, light, and love
 
RELEASING SEPTEMBER 20TH
 
by Tabatha Vargo
 
 
Genre: Romance, New Adult, Contemporary

BLACK SHEEP

Ever since the day I was dropped at her family’s door
hungry, dirty, and torn,
I’ve wanted her.
But to taint her perfect skin with my black touch
would be a
sin.
So I made a pact with myself—
NEVER TOUCH NICOLE PALMER.
However, when she returns home from college, she’s
different, and I’m not sure I can trust myself to keep my pact. I can’t submit
to her
temptation
no matter how sweetly she begs because she’s the
golden child
and I’m the
Black Sheep.
