Redeemed by Brie Paisley
I’ve lived in total darkness for as long as I can remember. A dangerous place where pain, love, not even remorse was felt. My world was filled with blood and death until the day I met Karen. Little by little she showed me the way out of that darkness, into her light. She was everything I needed and craved. I learned to fight my darkness, wanted the good side of me to win, until old and new enemies threaten to take away everything and everyone I care about. Darkness is winning and I fear the only one that can redeem me is the one I’ll end up hurting more than I thought possible.
Karen can save me, only if she beats the dark beast inside of me.
Control is the one thing I understand the most. It’s the one thing I’ve depended on to keep my fragile heart safe. That was my life until Jason changed everything. He opened up a side of me I thought had disappeared long ago, and the control I needed for so long doesn’t seem so appealing. There’s a void, a hole left inside me now that Jason’s not by my side. I know his demons. I know his dark beast that dwells within him waiting to takeover completely. I’ve seen it, felt it, and when the monster breaks free, I fear for everyone I love.
He thinks I can save him, but in the end, he’s the only one that can redeem himself.
*Note: This is the final book of the Worshipped Series and is not intended to be read as standalones.*
Review by: Jennifer
You must read the previous stories before you read this, as the last book just left in a cliffy and there are returning characters from the book before that.... it just makes more sense to read in order as this is the third part.
So Brie Paisley left us in Betrayed biting our nails, waiting to see what would happen next, and Redeemed had me on a freaking roller coaster! Jason left Karen with Frankie to... resume her life, as best she can that is. So Karen is seriously going through the motions here, she is trying but she can't forget what has happened and she doesn't really want to, well some of it at least. Jason has kept his distance but is not really ever far from her. He is trying to work out a plan, to get them all out of this situation but for the most part he doesn't see the ending. Is there hope for any of them? Is Karen better off alone without Jason and all that he brings? Or is it already too late for Karen?
Seeing all the players come together, and all the pieces just sort of click was amazing. There is so much going on in this story that there is no way I can do this justice. This is a very dark read, with some really hot sexy times, killing of bad people and not so bad people, and some other not really good things happening. I give this 5 stars.
Book #1 - Worshipped
Book #2 - Betrayed
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.
