5 “The Princess Bride” Stars!

“As you wish..."


description


Framed is the soon to be released, newest novel by author C.P. Smith. I have a few books by this author under my belt now and can state with certainty that I am a huge fan. Her books never cease to leave me with a big ole goofy smile on my face. They also always have me lusting, panting... whatever... after her over-the-top alpha heroes. C.P. Smith has penned yet another wonderfully entertaining and suspense-filled book where our growly and over-p

If you are looking for your next must read look no further. This book was amazing from beginning to the very end I was hooked and I mean hooked. We all know what it's like to have high hopes for a book only for you to find yourself skimming and just wanting to finish so you can move on to your next book. This book Framed was not that at all. Months ago when I first read the description of this book I knew I had to read it, add to that that C.P. Smith is one of my favorite authors and this become ...more

I LOVED this book! This was the perfect mix of suspense, romance and drama. I loved both Kade and Harley. The chemistry between these two was fantastic and the sexy scenes were super hot. This book also had one of my favorite epilogues ever - it was the perfect ending. I really loved this book and I can't wait to read more by this author!

5 “As You Wish" Stars!!

“Six hundred minutes, that’s all it took to lose everything he’d worked so hard for, including his freedom.”



Kade and Harley have been aware of each other for years each wanting the other without ever doing anything about it, until now....

I adore the heroes that C.P. Smith creates and Kade was absolutely no exception. I loved watching Kade claim his woman and how he does everything in his power to protect what he considers his. Kade kept wanting to assert his dominance,

4 to 4.25 stars!

I feel I should preface this review by saying that I have been really hard to impress lately. Out of the past 15 books I read, most were around a 3 to 3.5 star and only one of them got a 4.5 star, and I still rounded that one down to 4 here.

Anyway, overall I thought Framed was really cute, sweet and entertaining. It did have a few edgier and/or emotional scenes as well, though I wouldn't say anything was super intense. There were lots of likable characters. Some light humor. Act

Wow. C.P. Smith just keeps getting better and better. This is by far my favorite book.

I haven’t been quite sure what I was in the mood to read but this was everything I was looking for. It was romantic suspense, hot and steamy, great chemistry and a great story.

I loved every moment between Harley and Kade. I loved how they met in high school and never forgot each other. I loved every moment they had while he was in prison and they were training dogs together. I loved how protective he was of h

So, I literally just finished my ARC of FRAMED.

And (B) once it was finished, I'd be so sad and want to restart it immediately. C.P. Smith hit my radar when A Reason to Breathe came out. It was love at first book for me and I knew

I desperately want to love this author's writing style, that's why I'm still trying, but I don't think it's working for me TBH.

Narration was switching from 1st (h's) to 3rd (H's) POV and it felt like some scenes weren't cohesive. The caveman behavior like getting super angry for being OTT possessive or "Who does this pussy belong to? It's mine! Say it!" then they start yelling like possessed "Mine!" " Yours!" had me in tears.

This is why I try to always give authors at least two shots before tagging them as unreadable.

I read "A Reason To Believe" and was far from impressed by the mystery storyline and female MC, but I did sense that this author could do well if she wrote something that didn't go OTT to unbelievable and absurd.

And, she did just that with "Framed." She brought the right mix of funny, OTT, and serious with this one.

It's not so much a mystery or suspense; the bad guys are laid out early on, but there'

"As You Wish"
C.P. takes us on a journey of crime, suspense, second chances and love. Framed is about two people, who met one night on the football field back in high school, and have never forgotten each other through-out the years. Through their own doing, or certain circumstances, these two have been kept apart for long enough. No more. It's time to take risks to see what the future could possibly hold. Are they willing to go the distance and take chances? The future

Romantic, funny, suspense, steamy and sexy! A great read!

The sassy, bold heroine of this fast-moving book… will appeal to fans who like their tale geared more toward heroine who go after what they want and are not afraid to get it. Let's not forget the hero who is a bad-ass ALPHA who will do everything for the woman he LOVE. I truly enjoyed it from beginning to end.

Simply fascinating… Smith's style is always a pleasure to read.

3.0-3.25 RATING- I hesitated going in with this one because the blurb just wasn't calling to me. Still, I'm a fan of this author so decided to take a chance. Nothing wrong with the writing, editing, etc. I realize I'm in the minority here but this just wasn't one of my favorites from C.P Smith. Still a fan!

Kade just quit the Navy, after 12 years, to come home and take care of his cancer-stricken grandfather.

But after being back for only 10 hours, he lands himself in jail for murder. A murder he didn't commit of course, but he's in jail now, and unless his SEAL buddies come and find evidence to prove his innocence, he might have to stay for 7 to 15 years. And his unit has just been employed for 24 months.

Enter Harley.
She's been halfway in love with Kade since she was a 16-year-old cheerleader.

I've read a couple of books by this author now and absolutely loved them. She writes sassy heroines, "to die for" alpha males and story lines that are gripping from start to finish. However, for some reason, I just could not get into C.P Smith's latest release "Framed." I don't know whether it was because I wasn't in the right mind set when I read it

Another winner for author CP Smith. She weaves a tale of suspense and love that hooks you from the beginning and leaves you wanting more.
I was graciously gifted an advanced copy and I'm so lucky I did.
If you love Navy SEALS who are all Alpha and the women who can bring them to their knees than this is the book for you.
I look forward to reading it again and HIGHLY recommend this book and author.

I haven't read a book by CP Smith that I haven't fallen desperately in love with. The woman can write, people!! Her characters are so well developed, her writing flows beautifully, and the dialogue is so engaging. Not to mention the steamy times are more than steamy... downright melting!

Let me start with Harley. I love her. I've read a lot of books and she is right up there with all my favorite heroines. She is strong, confident, and has such a big heart. She also knows how to

Being a big fan of insta-love I fell in love with C.P. Smith's books back when I first read A Reason to Breathe and I knew that Framed would be no exception. I mean, an ex-SEAL turned convict and the woman determined to help get him free? What's not to love?!

Kade was imprisoned for a murder that he swears he didn't commit. Harley is in charge of a program in the prison and believes Kade is innocent. She sets out to prove his innocence when sparks fly between them. This puts Harley in danger once Kade's enemies know what she means to him. I have to say C.P. Smith has done it again. I love all of her books and this one was no exception. The way she is able to keep the suspense and the reader on the edge of their seat until the end is amazing. Of cours ...more

This book was a pleasant surprise. It had me devouring the pages from beginning to end. It was a sweet romance with a good balance of suspense.

The pros:
* Offered as kindleunlimited
* Characters that I couldn't help but fall in love with
* The story had a very genuine feel to it
* A fast moving and exciting plot

The cons:
* I do love me some Navy Seals, but towards the end some of the stunts were just too far fetched and unrealistic

Overall, I'm really glad to have read this one and defian
