Running a business and trying to keep the past in the past isn't so easy.
Riley Blake thinks she has it all: a nice house, a great friend, and her own bakery. Her world turns upside down when an incident with a hot stranger happens right outside the local coffee shop. Riley is instantly attracted to the dark and mysterious man.

Fate steps in yet again, and Riley finds herself with the dark and mysterious man again at a local bar. His name is Isaac.
Isaac has his own business with his partner, Conner. Riley doesn't think too much of the two having more than a brother type friendship. When Riley becomes attracted to Conner, she is torn over what she should do.
Isaac, however, lets Riley know he is willing to share. Shocked and utterly confused, Riley does as she is told and begins a relationship with not one, but two men. Everything was great until Isaac and Conner's past comes back to haunt them and Riley ends up in the middle. Just when she thinks it cant get any worse, Riley’s ex comes back into the picture and she is thrown back into her past. Can love really conquer all? Or will this be just another sad love story?

Betrayed Book 2 of the Worshipped Series
***This has not release yet, but should be available in July. 

He is darkness. He is everything that should make me run and never look back. I should run. I should leave and forget everything he makes me want and feel. I have tried running, only to be caught and brought back. Why does this man want me? Why does he want to claim everything I have?
I just want to be free. I want and need my freedom from him.
I need freedom from his darkness.
I need freedom from his chains that bind me.
I need freedom from falling for the man that I know is a monster.
She is light. Everything that is good while I am consumed with darkness. She is my salvation from the monster that dwells inside of me. I can’t help but want her. I can’t help but need her. I have to consume her in every way possible. She is mine whether she wants to believe it or not. She wants her freedom from me. But what she doesn’t see, I am the very thing she wants and needs.
Freedom to be herself.
Freedom to let go of her pain.
Freedom to fall for the one man that sets her body on fire.
Body, mind, and soul I will claim what is mine.

About Brie Paisley:
Brie Paisley is a small town gal from Mississippi. She always wanted to write at a young age and was always filling journals with her thoughts and short stories. Brie started with the idea of Worshipped a year ago and with the encouragement of her husband and sister in law, she was able to write her first book. When she is not writing, you can find her reading a good book, painting, scrapbooking, or watching a good movie with her husband and her boxer.

Interview with Brie Paisley:
  1. 1. Can you tell us a little about your book?
    My debut novel Worshipped back in March. When I started actually writing it, I had no idea it would end up being the way it became. It took me a little over a year to write it, and how I got the idea was kind of crazy. There is always that one book, or one TV show that you love and while I was watching a favorite TV show of mine, the idea literally came out of nowhere. The idea of a love triangle always seems more taboo and full of angst. I wanted to write something different and I feel I accomplished that with Worshipped. With the second book, the story sort of took a different turn than I thought. I felt a certain character needed her story told, as well as another. This second book of the series is all about them. It’s a little darker than the first, but we all love a bad boy right?

    2.  What inspires you to write?
    A lot of things actually. I have always wanted to write. I have a very active imagination, and since I was child I would always come up with these crazy ideas. Then I read a great book, or see a great movie, and it clicks something in my brain. I think, oh well that would be a great idea. Then I take that small idea no matter how small it may be, and before I know it, a storyline is born. No matter what I am doing or if I am actually out doing something, I always feel inspired to write something new.

    3.  How was it to press publish on your first book?
    It was very surreal! I still can’t believe I am here, doing what I love. I remember being so nervous that day. I had my husband and sister-in-law telling me how proud they were, and now that it’s about to happen again, I am feeling like I am on cloud nine.

    4. Do you have a favorite spot to write?
    I do. I really like to take my laptop outside if it’s sunny. I like to sit in the recliner in my living room. It’s nice to change it up and not to stay confined into one area.

    5. Do you have any “odd” writing habits?
    Sort of. I don’t think anything of it, but when I am really into the character’s and writing something great about them, I have been told I make these weird facial expressions. My husband asked me once if I wrote something bad, and when I asked how did you know, he replied, “The look on your face gave it away”. I also like to look at pictures before I even start to write. Having a visual of what the characters look like or the time the story takes place really helps me. They also are a good way for me to make teasers. I see a picture and I come up with something that would fit it best. And then I go back into the book and write it in there.

    6.  Do you listen to music while you write?
    Yes I do. I love music. I feel all sorts of emotions from music. I mainly listen to rock, as it is my favorite and my books have a darker feel to it and listening to country or pop just didn’t fit the mood I was going for.

    7. What do you do when you are not writing?
    Normally if I’m not writing, I catch up on reading. If I don’t read I will watch movies, get caught up on my favorite TV shows. I like to paint, scrap book, go for hikes with my sweet boxer, or most of the time, I just sit outside and soak up some sun.

    8.What's one random fact about yourself that you can share?
    One random fact….well I am from the south and I hate sweet tea and country music. Strange I know…LOL

    9. What are writing projects are you currently working on?
    I am currently writing a totally new book. It will be a standalone, and can be read before/after Worshipped. This book has nothing to do with the series. I was working on book 3 of the series, but I decided to take a break and write this new one. Be on the lookout, I am half way done and will be announcing it soon!
