Karen
Had I’d known what would happen the moment I met him, things might have ended differently. If I’d seen who he really was behind that perfectly placed mask, maybe I wouldn’t have fallen for a man surrounded in darkness. Even if I try to out run the beast that lies within him, my feelings only grow stronger. No matter what I do, h

This is book two in the series. It continues where book one Worshipped ends so make sure you read it first.

This is Jason and Karen's story who we have met in book one. Their story started off at a good pace and had me hooked from start to finish.

My emotions were all over the place reading this. The writing is superb and the storyline is gripping. As for the ending-holy wowzers I need book three now.

Highly recommend this book. So looking forward to book three.

After reading book 1, I could not wait to start book 2. Right at the end of book 1 we find out some things about Josh/Jason that leave your mouth hanging open so I couldn’t wait to find out answers. Karen and Jason broke down my emotions so many times. I went from laughing, to being angry, to frustrated, and then to actual tears in my eyes.

Karen has suffered her own loss that she still isn’t recovering from very well. But when she meets Jason for the first time she knows that she needs to take

Betrayed picks up where Worshipped left off, but now we are given the POV of Karen and Jason. Poor Karen has been ripped out of her world and thrust into one of violence, fear, and chaos. There were so many things that Jason was hiding from her and she just wants the truth. There were times where I wanted to strangle Jason in the beginning for not just telling her what was going on, but at the same time I understood that he was afraid of losing her completely. I loved the chemistry between the t ...more

After reading Worshipped, I thought I knew what to expect with Betrayed. Wow, was I ever wrong. Betrayed is a much, much darker, more intense read. We met Karen and Josh/Jason in Worshipped and at the end he had taken her. Betrayed picks up there. Josh/Jason is on the run and Karen is scared for her life. They go from motel to motel, never staying in one place very long. Josh/Jason keeps her cuffed to the bed if he has to leave and sometimes he comes back covered in blood. Whose blood is it? His ...more

This is book 2 of the Worshipped Series! You will need to read book one to understand what is happening in this book and I will promise that you will want to read both books.

Brie gives us both pov in this book unlike in book one and I for one can say that I love having both pov. It makes it so much easier to see where the characters are coming from. I love how Brie can drawn you in like a moth to flame and no dou

This is the second book in the series from a different point of view per say. We get both ends of the spectrum as this is Karen and Jason’s sides. This book starts immediately up where we left off in Worshipped. I have to say I felt at times I was reading the same events just in a different sequence. It was frustrating at times and I wanted things to move forward from the stand still. This book is darker – it holds a lot stomach turners meaning it

Ok so I'm going to be honest as all get out here. When I first started this book I could not get into it. I was still thinking of everything that happened in Worshipped with Riley and the guys and almost didnt keep on reading. But after I got out of the mindset of Riley (which was not easy) I fell in love with this book.

Jason has a darkness to him and it isn't really until the end of the book or at least 75% to where he has some redeeming qualities about him. He did kidnap Karen and keeps her b

So in Betrayed we picked up with Karen and...Josh. Starting with a flash back of when he .....saved her, kidnapped her, it's the same right?


Karen has no real clue who Josh is, even though she thought she did. She does know that he can turn her body on like no other, I'm talking hot dominate scenes here people!! SEXY hot scenes.

Karen closed her heart up a long time ago, When she suffered a loss of a Love One. Josh / Jason has been battling his darkness since he was a was a young child. He has seen and lived through things no child or adult should. When a job brings Karen into his life, he doesn't understand but he can't let anything happen to her. Karen has no idea why Jason has taken her away for her family and Friends. He keeps her in the dark. She is scared and fights the pull they have. But throw it all Karen makes ...more

Wow!! This is book two in the series so I suggest you read Worshipped first. Brie delivers another incredible story.

This book completely consumes you in ways you can't imagine. If you've read book one, you'll know what to expect, and this delivers tenfold! In this dual pov you get to really delve into both Karen and Jason's mind while you're on this roller coaster that will leave you completely hungover.

Both characters are so hurt, broken, and down that this makes for one hell of a ride. And B

Wow just when I thought this series couldnt get any better Brie has left me almost speachless! The second book in this series is Captivating.. I was lost in it within the first few words, the sexual tension was amazing and I seriously felt the hot desire deep inside me! I couldnt stop reading wanting more and more of Jason! if you thought Christian from fifty shades was hot and desirable wait until you meet Jason!

So this one is all Karen and Jason (aka Josh in Worshipped book 1). If you read Worshipped then you know what happens to Karen. If you haven't then do read the first book so you get why... It's faced paced and wow what a ride. Another amazing book from Brie. I loved it. Karen finally gets to know the real Jason and wow you get hit with that okay girl what are you going to do feeling throughout. This ends with a cliffhanger that leaves you running to pick up the final book. Thi

This book must be read after Worshipped. This was a really good read. Loved the characters and story line.

Karen is a strong willed woman that doesn't let anyone close to her since her loss. Her world is turned upside down thanks to Jason.

Held captive by an insanely hot man she thought she knew. Karen doesn't understand why she feels like this about Jason. He is dark, dangerous and is keeping many secrets. Karen has tried to run from him and tried to stop these feeling she has for him. Ye

Heart racing for the continuing off of Worshipped series.... I couldn't wait to continue this journey and find out what happens next.
Karen is Riley's best friend as you read in the first book, this book centers around her and the man of her dreams. Or is he? Karen met Jason at the bar that was a favorite of hers and Riley's. He was what ever woman would dream of. Karen hadn't really put much effort into finding a man in her life her clinic was enough for her along with her friends. Soon Ja

Betrayed by Brie Paisley will blow your mind. This is not a standalone you must read Worshipped first to understand the story. in Betrayed we get the story of Karen and Jason which is a much darker twisted and insidious tale. I was not expecting to read the book I read. This book is basically a book of good versus evil. Evil comes in many forms some is innate and some forms of evil are made. I was prepared for the sexual aspect of the book but at first had a hard time reading the story. As we se ...more

This is the second book in this series and Worshiped needs to be read first.

When Riley's life is in danger due to her relationship with Isaac and Conner their enemies will do anything to get to her, including taking Karen. At first Karen doesn't realize what is going on but soon she finds herself in way over her head.

Let me start by saying, you MUST read Worshipped first. This is not a stand alone, and by reading this first, you lose valuable plot points that are crucial to the story.
Now to the review. Betrayed was a bit different than I thought it was going to be. It picked up where Worshipped left off but this time it focused on Karen, Riley's doctor, and Jason, the man who wasn't what he appeared to be.
We got a glimpse of this couple in the first book, but this one dove right in to what was go

Karen meets Jason at her favorite bar and they have an instant attraction. One night Jason kidnaps Karen and keeps her hostage but she does not know why.

Brie Paisley has done it again and has brought to life a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. The suspense is killing me...I need to know what happens. Book two of the Worshipped Series was fantastic. I loved getting to know Jason and Karen story. The sexual tension between the two is undeniable. Betrayed is not for the faint of heart though. The book has its dark moments.

You can't help but love and hate both Karen and Jason throughout the book. I wanted to

Loved this book. It is the 2nd in a series. You could probably read it without Worshipped but I recommend that book highly as well. Brie Paisley writes in such a way that you find yourself immersed in the story. I didn't want to put it down.

Karen is a doctor, she needs control or so she thought. She meets Josh and thinks she might have found a happily ever after. While Karen's best friend is in danger, Karen discovers that Josh is really Jason and Jason is NOT a nice guy. When Jason whisks her

First you don't have to read Worshipped (Worshipped Series Book 1) but it leads into this book and is helpful getting to know the characters. Now I loved the first book, I loved this book more.

Karen and Jason's story is so passionate, they had me hooked from the beginning. Getting to know Jason, his dark past and everything he has been through in his life, made me fall in love with him by the time I got to the end of the book. Karen has a good job, a normal life unlike Jason. She has

This book had me all over the place, Karen and Jason. She is the angel to his devil.
All he wanted to do was protect her, but it just made him out to look like a monster. But in reality he really is a monster. Underneath it all, he craves he darkness, until her. She saves him, makes him want to be a better man. Karen is drawn to him, and she knows there is more to him than the monster than overcomes him when things go wrong.

Brie F-ing Paisley.. YOU ARE KILLING ME, SMALLS! Just when I thought I knew where this book was going, you had to go and pull a 180. If I could have hoped on a plane and flown to see you, I would have been screaming and pointing at the end of this book. The cliffhanger was frustratingly amazing. Betrayed is the kind of book that requires a fan, fresh panties, and a punching bag. You will find yourself hot and bothered and at the same time, needing to punch the shit out of something in frustrat

A continuation of worshipped. A must read series, I could not wait to read betrayed. In the end of worshipped Rileys best friend Karen is missing. Betrayed is Karen and Josh's story. It rotates between both POV, and helps to follow such an emotional story.
Karen is terrified the man she trusted and cared for has kidnapped her and is tying her to the bed in random motels while he is leaving to do unknown acts. He returns covered in blood scaring karen even more with the unknowns.

In order to fully understand this book you really need to read Worshiped first. It does give you the back story you need to help understand what is going on or at least the basis of what's going on. This is Jason and Karen's story. Little did she know what she was getting her self caught up in when she had that first drink with him. Jason has a dark side that he is better able to control with Karen. But he has a plan and not only for their protection but because of his dark side he has to make i ...more

I really liked book 1 which is the story of Riley, Connor and Isaac and was thrown for a loop when this was featured on two different characters; Karen and Jason who were mentioned in book 1, but not really the focus. So, when we first start, Jason/Josh has kidnapped Karen to keep her safe although she doesn’t know that at the time. Since this book has such a different focus it took me a bit to enjoy it since I was expecting more of Riley and the boys. Again, there are a lot of mystery and unans ...more

Wow! I felt so many emotions while reading this book! I felt anger at Jason for what he did to Karen, desire for Jason, because he is indeed very hot, sadness for tragedies that both characters have dealt with in their pasts, and I also felt a lot of love for both Jason and Karen. They have both overcome so much in their pasts, even though Jason is still dealing with his problems. He will do whatever he has to, to keep Karen safe from people that are after him and the people he cares about. Will ...more
