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, he’s always there to bring me back. He al

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

Brie paisley had done it again for me.. What a brilliant and amazing read.. You are truly talented and your an amazing writer.. Another book of the year and an amazing journey. I am completely lost for words...

Please note that Betrayed is not a standalone. Worshipped must be read first.. Without doing so, you will not understand or follow the story.. So please read worshipped first..

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 doubt in this b

3.5 stars

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 rolls into secrets

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

OK you MUST read Worshipped first!!! You will be lost if you don't.


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.

Josh has good intentions toward Karen, he has his reasons even if he won't share what they are.

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!

I will be honest, I was a little disappointed that this book didn't pick up where book 1 left off, but as I got into it, I am so glad that Brie wrote the story of Karen and Jason.

In book 1, we don't know what happened to Karen and "Josh", it's almost left us with the thoughts that she is dead. We see both Karen and Jason grow and change as individuals and as a couple. Karen doesn't understand why it is that she is so drawn to Jason and what it is about his dominant side that turns her on so much

Betrayed, book two in the Worshipped series continues from the end of book one, but begins the story of Riley’s doctor friend Karen Keens and her relationship with Josh (Who we later find out is actually Jason Hamilton). When Karen is taken by Jason in book one, we don’t really hear much about it other then Riley searching, but in this book we discover that he is on the run. Moving from motel to motel, he leaves her cuffed to the bed so she can’t leave him, sometimes returning with blood on his ...more

You need to read Worshipped first-(I didn't and I was a little confused). My emotions were all over the place with this book and it took me a little bit to get into it. My instant hate for Josh...Jason, quickly turns in compassion and love. Karen was a little too much to handle at the beginning of this book. After finding out their story, I learned to love both of the characters in their own way. Both characters are broken souls and can't seem to get enough of each other. ...more

Book one (read first) ends with a cliffhanger. Karen sends a cryptic phone call to Riley. In this book is Karen's story. Can someone be scared, yet attracted to someone dangerous? Jason and Karen are on the run, and should Karen be frightened? Jason has claimed Karen, but his dark and light sides of his personality are fighting for the chance to break through. This goes back to wrong and right, black and white...or gray. Jason is a bad man, but what if bad men have their reasons for being bad. A ...more

This is book two in the series and it continues where book one Worshipped ends. I would highly recommend reading book 1 in this series first. This is Jason and Karen's story and we met these two in book one in this series. Their story is full of twist/turns, great chemistry and this book does end on a cliffhanger. ...more

Must read series

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. This s

A continuation of Worshipped, this is not a standalone and picks up with Karen and Josh/Jason's story. A darker more twisted read than expected this has them on the run but from what/who? Karen is unsure of many things and a little afraid to ask. This book gives us plenty of questions and ends in cliffhanger. I find myself invested and wanting to see how this concludes for all involved. ...more

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. Yet they

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 Jason ha

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

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 going on behin

Five Fabulous Stars! This is the second book in the Worshipped Series and should be read in order to fully understand the story. Karen is Riley's friend from Worshipped and this is Karen and Jason's story. Karen is an OBGYN and really has not dated much. 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. Jason knows the only way to keep Karen safe is kidnapping her because of the evil chasing h ...more

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 smack Jason
