Ashlynn has wanted to be a porn star since she was far too young to be watching porn. She stayed up late watching Cinemax, which introduced her to some of the Debbie Does Dallas Movies and she thought, "I can do better!", which she did after turning 18. Brooke did nude photography before performing in porn, modeling for Easy Rider Magazine and Gallery Magazine. Soon after, she briefly worked as a stripper. Ashlynn started in the adult business in 2006 and has appeared in over 30 films. She first worked for the BangBros website. Then, Brooke became an exclusive contract performer with new Sensations and Digital Sin. Ashlynn made her directing debut in 2009, titled Ashlynn Brooke's Lesbian Fantasies.
Brooke was named by CNBC as one of the 12 most popular stars in porn together with Tori Black and Lexi Belle. CNBC also noted her role in Piranha 3D with an increasing interest in her earlier porn films. In 2010, breaking news hit Ashlynn Brooke fans when she announced her retirement from the porn industry after giving birth to her child. She posted the announcement on her twitter account, introducing herself as Ashley, the former Ashlynn Brooke. She also posted on her account that she will no longer update her former website but will start up a new site without any adult content.
Explaining the reasons for her retirement, Brooks posted:
"First I stopped doing boys, what a relief...I honestly felt that if I had to have another strange man's cock in my face, his hands (God knows where they've been) all over me, him calling me his baby, and having to exude some sort of forged passion for the world to see, I probably would've exploded. And what would've been stuck to the walls would've probably been nothing. Just pieces of skin, bone, the brain of a robot, and what would have been left of a once huge and warm heart. Thank goodness it never got to that point".
After Brooke gave birth to her child she stated:
"Nothing on earth could've made me happier at that very moment. It was like God just reached down and literally removed me from that world and put me back into the real one. I knew that from that point in my life would be peaceful, happy, and full of love again!"
