Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Saints and Sinners and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


I knew she was the one the moment I laid eyes on her.

She’s everything I’ve ever wanted, and I never dreamed of
finding her in my hometown. Savannah Owens seems lost and wants to find a place
where she feels as if she belongs. What she doesn’t realize is she’s already
found it. When I uncover a long buried secret, I know it’ll change everything
Savannah and I have. Secrets never stay hidden, and once the truth about
Savannah’s past is revealed, I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her and make her
mine forever.


All I’ve ever wanted was to find a place where I belong. 

A place that I actually fit in and don’t feel like an
outsider. When I met Caden Harlow, I thought I found my home. He’s everything I
need to make my life seem almost perfect. No matter how much I try to stay
away, something always pulls me back to him. But the urge to get the answers
I’ve longed for, outweighs my feelings for him. I have to find the truth, if
only to put an end to my insecurity of never being wanted and truly loved. 

*** This can be read as a standalone. *** 



Savannah Owens seems lost. She introduces us to her friend, Kelsey, and you immediately feel sorry for her. Savannah has issues that she’s trying to resolve. Caden Harlow is a man that likes to use his charm on women but not everyone is impressed. He has a family where people want the same or similar – they have meals together and they talk and joke with each other. They know the right buttons to push to get us laughing - and maybe thinking about our own family.

Caden is a very likeable character and may have you rethinking your thoughts on law enforcement. The issues I had were with Savannah. You can see how young she is and with her issues you have to think how Caden is too good for her. But one thing that makes it interesting is how he seems so focused on what he wants. Their connection is hot and sexy but at times her issues just seemed to get in the way – in my mind at least.

You know that Caden is a fictional cop but in my mind I kept questioning how some things he seemed to overlook because of how much he really liked Savannah. I don’t think she took advantage of that but it’s still there in the back of your mind – what kind of help Savannah really needs. Caden has a twin brother Casen and at times I felt like he was the voice of reason – a voice that Caden wasn’t listening to. I did like that the author addresses adoption and wanting answers. It also puts an interesting twist on things as the story progresses. Savannah eventually redeems herself in my eyes. I’m glad to see Caden so happy but felt the jury was still out on Savannah. The author has done her job well because she’s gotten my emotions involved. I can’t find anything about whether or not the Harlow Brothers are going to continue but one can always hope.

Book #1: Carter
The Harlow Brothers Series (Standalone)


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 of 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.

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.
