About the author: 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.
TBBB: Where are you from?
BP: I’m originally from a small town outside of Columbus Mississippi. At the moment, I live in Germany.
TBBB: If you had to perform in a talent competition right now, what would your talent be?
BP: I would lip sing and dance to an old Britney Spears song. (Because who wouldn’t? And I might have done this once in the fourth grade.)
TBBB: What’s your favorite movie quote? (Make sure to include the name of the movie)
BP: I like way too many movies to pick just one, so instead I’ll give you a quote an English professor gave me, and one that has stayed with me since junior high. The first: Keep it simple stupid. This one I live by. I’m an over thinker, so when it starts getting complicated, mainly with my writing, I remember this quote. The other one: Happiness is like peeing in your pants. Everyone can see it, but only you can feel the warmth. I’m not sure why this one has stuck with me for so long, but it’s so true. When you’re happy everyone around you can see it, even if they can’t feel or know why you’re so happy.
TBBB: Tell us a fun fact about yourself that would surprise your readers.
BP: I’m a very boring person. LOL. Like seriously, all I do is work and come home. I take lots of naps too, but that might not be as surprising. I think a lot of readers think most authors have this super busy and crazy life, but I’m a home body.
TBBB: Okay, back to books, what genres do you write?
BP: As of right now, I write in erotic, dark erotic, and contemporary romance. I plan on writing in many more genres and branding myself as an author that can write in all types of romance.
TBBB: What is your inspiration?
BP: I have a ton of inspiration. Some of it strives from my past or my life now. Some comes from stories I’ve heard. Mostly, the ideas I get are from a TV series or movie I’ve watched. Law & Order SVU is one that I’ve gained tons of inspiration from for future books.
TBBB: Tell us about your latest book?
BP: My latest release was Carter (The Harlow Brothers: Book One). Carter is basically a lot of true life events with a bit of fiction. It’s my contemporary novel and I loved writing it. Just seeing how the characters developed and knowing I’d based it in my hometown, made me love it so much. It’s a second chance at love novel, and one that I really think has a big meaning behind it. I might be a little biased, but with the lead hero, Carter, and heroine Shelby, they really do overcome a lot in their lives. Not only do they grow as individuals, but also together. It’s sort of a heartbreaking story too. But when the idea came for Carter, I wanted to step out of my comfort of erotica and try something new. This is a new series I’m starting too, but each will be written as a standalone. Each book will be about a Harlow brother, so there will be five books total. Next in the series is Caden, and I know a lot of people are looking forward to his book.

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. ”

Most people are able to resist or fight against it. I am not one of those people.
I used to be the good girl. That shy and forgettable girl that everyone looked over. That girl that had her whole life planned out. But one choice, one bad mistake at a party, changed my life in so many ways. Gone was my mapped out future. Gone was the perfect image of the girl I was.
Then he came.
Viktor Matvei found me. He saved me. And then he offered me one of the biggest temptations of all. The chance to become someone else. I had a chance to be stronger, confident, and most of all, the opportunity to change the course of my life. If it were just me, the decision would’ve been easy but my thoughts are blurred with an unexpected return of my past.
Viktor lives and breathes his strict rules. He is demanding and he will stop at nothing to get what he wants. I know there are things in his life that makes him be the way he is. He is a temptation that I cannot give into. If I do, I fear there will not be a shred of Ava Walker left.
Now I have a choice.
Will I continue to fight Viktor? Or will I give into his temptation
She was the one for me.
The one that I knew would be mine forever until I made the biggest mistake. I pushed her away and I’ve regretted that decision ever since. I’ve tried to move on, tried to put the memory of her behind me, but she’s always consuming my thoughts. Now, she’s back in our hometown, trying to rebuild a new life. I know she’s keeping secrets. She tries to hide them from me, and I will do whatever it takes to prove that I’m the one she needs. Because Shelby Ross is the other part of me that I can’t live without and I refuse to let her go again.
He broke my heart.
I never thought I would be able to pick up the pieces he left behind. When he let me go, I ran away from it all, thinking it was the easiest thing to do. But, running has a price and I’ve paid it in full for years. Now, I’m back where it all began, back to putting my life together and starting over. It should’ve been easy, but Carter Harlow is reawakening long buried emotions that I thought were gone. He wants to make me his again. I can’t let that happen. He ruined me, broke me, and I’m afraid I’ll never survive it a second time around.
