This book was given to me by the author, Mr. Halverson for review. The thoughts that are expressed are solely mine and mine alone. Now on the review...

This book is kick ass. There is some steamy sex, a hell’va lot of action, and the courage of a true man. Please meet Kane Silver. Now, this book was not very high on the romance, but I will tell you that Kane made it to my Sex On A Stick Man status. How you might ask... I will let the story unfold.

Kane was raised in a military family all his life, moving from one post to another with his family. His father made the military his career; so Kane was raised to be the best the best could be. Kane followed in his father's footsteps. At the age of 25 years old, Kane's fellow comrades deemed him a Greek statue. He was in awesome shape, good looking and I my words, just plain hot. But it was not just his physical features that drew me to him, no. It was the man himself. He was all a man should be and more. He was the perfect gentleman, the perfect soldier, and all around great guy. But I do not want you to think that they man was all that perfect, for he was not ~ no one is.

Kane meet Melinda when he was serving in the Persian Gulf war. They hit it off instantly ~ love at first sight. I have to give my hat off to Mr. Wade for bringing the characters to life for me. I could see the love that Kane and Melinda shared. How deep it ran and how true it was. The depht of how they truly adored each other.
One day, like any other, all that changed. Kane's world was rocked and not in a good way. One afternoon, four men decided to break into Kane's house; with the Melinda inside. Well, the events that unfold broke my heart and had tears in my eyes. But the story did not end there.

No, Mr. Wade pushed farther into the depths of how far would a man go to do the right thing. Kane's life changed. I do not want to give away to much of the book, but know that I found myself rooting for Kane through the whole thing. The thing that may bore some women are the fighting scenes. I watch a lot of mma(mixed martial arts) shows and such, so for me, this was awesome. I felt like I was standing on the side of Kane and his opponent, watching them fight. I felt like I was right there when Kane would be doing his daily workouts. Mr. Wade did a brilliant job at luring into the intoxicating tale of Kane's journey in life.

I can honestly say this was an awesome book. The ride it took me one and where it ended, I never saw that coming. The love that is in the book is simply amazing. First with his wife, then you see it trickled down to his friends. Family. The loyalty to everyone Kane comes into contact with is not lost either. He is a man of honor and code and most of all respect.

A man who would defend me no matter the cost, honor his own values and morals, treat everyone with the respect they deserve, fight for his friends and love with all his heart is definitely a sex on a stick man to me. So, if you would like to meet a man of such description, I think you should definitely go out and get this book. It definitely leaving you feeling a sense of satisfaction and it will leave a smile on your face.

Mr. Wade, I appreciate you allowing me the time to read and review your book and I look forward to many more. Good luck to you sir!
