Six hundred minutes. That’s all it took ex-SEAL Kade Kingston to find trouble his first day home. He’d managed to survive covert operations in the hostile mountains of Afghanistan, only to be brought down by a baseball bat. If he had the first five hundred minutes back, he would have only had one drink before insisting his old friend tell him what the hell was going on. As it stood now, he and Sutton were both dead in the water—literally and figuratively. Six hundred minutes. That’s all it took for Kade Kingston to walk back into hell in his own backyard, losing everything in the process . . . including his freedom.
Inmate dog trainer, Harley Dash, knew Kade briefly as a teenager and was convinced of his innocence. Wanting to help the brooding ex-SEAL, she took it upon herself to force Kade into the Inmate Dog Training Program while she looked for a killer. With Kade confined, Harley and her father, along with two sexy SEALs, looked for evidence that would set Kade free.
Unfortunately, for Kade, Sutton's murder was just the tip of the iceberg in a case of corruption and murder, one that will send Kade and Harley into the Florida Everglades with a killer.
Will they survive the alligators of the Florida Everglades, or will the Dread Pirate Roberts exact his revenge?
What I loved:
Ever start a book, and from the first page, just have that feeling in your gut. It’s not a bad feeling, but not good either. It’s that clenching feeling that teeters on heartbreak, but swings towards hope. Yes. That one. Kade was stripped of his freedom, after fighting so hard to protect his country’s and wrongfully imprisoned. While there, he slowly starts to lose hope that his former SEAL team will do what they have to, to free him and clear his name. Then of course, there is Harley. She is the dog trainer that comes to the jail three times a week to help rehabilitate inmates by using the dogs. She remembers Kade from high school, and she still feels exactly the same way about him now. Kade and Harley sizzle when they get together. It has been years of different journeys and roads traveled, but both of them are able to be together now. Harley knows down to her bones Kade is innocent and may just save Kade, as much as Kade saves her. Never has there been two main characters who are BOTH the heroes like Kade and Harley!
What I didn’t Love:
CP always captures me by the heart and gives me the feels. I just wasn’t expecting it so soon in this book. It’s not something I am used to. I suppose that is why I am writing this here because I was just unsure of what I felt. LOL. In all seriousness, there is never anything that I don’t love about CP’s books.
FRAMED is a long-lost lovers, military, romantic, alpha covered story that grips you from page one. It shares a story of true commitment and the meaning of no man left behind. What else can I really say…GO 1-CLICK NOW!!!
Kade is a Navy Seal home on leave to take care of his grandfather who is dying from cancer. On the day he gets back, he ends up at the wrong place at the wrong time and is convicted of a murder he didn't commit.
Harley works as an inmate dog trainer at the prison where Kade is sent to serve his sentence. She's had a crush on him for years and knows he's innocent of the crime he was convicted of. She gets him involved in her dog program and is surprised to learn that Kade has been interested in her since high school. Once his fellow Seals get home, they will do whatever is necessary to prove Kade's innocence and get his named cleared. But the ones guilty don't want the truth to come out and they threaten Harley's life in order to keep Kade quiet. Harley and the Seals have to find proof to get him released before it's too late.
Kade is a really great guy. He's fought and served to protect our country and is loyal to all those he cares about. He cannot believe he finally has a chance with Harley and of course wants her safe and protected. He makes his feelings for her very clear and her safety is extremely important to him. He's been through so much and doesn't want to lose anyone else close to him.
Harley tried my patience. I'm all for being an independent woman, but her stubbornness and childish actions were annoying. I mean Kade and his buddies are flippin Seals who are trained in taking care of themselves, know what they are doing and have the help of the district attorney to find those responsible. She made stupid decisions and let her pride put her in danger when she should have used her head. Granted it panned out one time when she went searching on her own. But the other times, especially the time with her bossy friend Bette, I was shaking my head thinking train wreck ahead. Personally, I have a hard time when this particular kind of storyline happens where the leading lady seems to lose her brain cells and struts herself around doing whatever she wants when her life in danger. Consequences be damned. Seriously, do these women actually exist? Obviously it was needed for the story to work the way it did - but still...
Overall, it was a good book and I did enjoy it. It's told from dual POVs and has an ending that works great. Kade and Harley worked well as a couple and I liked the other two Seals, Kyle and Harley's dad.
