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,

Life After 187 is literally an action packed movie with words. At first, I was having a hard time connecting with the story and characters. But once I started reading further, everything changed. I simply couldn't get enough of this roller coaster adventure! The story opens up with Kane and his father. Kane was a military brat that was brought up to be respectful and tough. He then got married to the love of his life but unfortunately was cut short due to her murder. I was emotionally touched wh ...more

Life After 187 grabbed me from the first page, which is just as well because it is a very quick read. It's obvious that Halverson writes what he knows, and does it well. Intense and authentic, the author's simple but direct style of writing plays almost like a movie. I thought the fight scenes were great and I would have liked to see more (which surprised me.) However this isn't just an action-packed adrenaline ride, there are moments of quiet, where the bond of friendship and honour between Kan ...more

This novel was a complete rollercoaster ride and I mean that in the most figurative way. A lot and I mean a lot happens in this novel. Sentences were very short, the descriptions were vague, and there was a lot of fluff between the chapters that I really didn’t care for. Although, there are a few things that the author did, I have to say, completely held my interest. The author shows he has an excellent and profound knowledge in the art of fighting, army life as well as how a prison works. There ...more

Let me begin by saying Life After 187 really surprised me! I had expected a fictional book about prison life, inmates, and prison fighting but Life After 187 offered so much more.

Kane Silver was brought up military, lost his mother at an early age, lost his wife to a senseless crime, and went to prison for the murder of the men who killed her. Life dealt him some hard knocks but each just made him stronger.

I was impressed with Kane’s leadership skills and how fast the bond was merged with his tw

I loved this book. Wade grabs a hold of you from page one and doesn't let go until you turn the last page. It's chocked full of no holds barred fights and fighters. If you are a fan of MMA or fights in general I think you would love this book.

You can't help but sympathize with Kane and even the other main guys even though they all were in prison for murder. I found myself rooting for all the boys during their fights and adventures that led them all over the world.

Wade truly has a gift of storyte

Shelves: mystery
Life After 187 was packed with non-stop action for the first word to the last. The story was a face paced journey into worlds I knew nothing about and yet I couldn't put it down. I had to know how Kane was going to deal with the next situation he found himself in. Military, prison life, no rules fights for cash among many other foreign topics kept me enthralled throughout. The biggest shocker - I told my husband about it and he (being very proud of his utter dislike for reading) asked me to hold ...more

Right from the beginning I was hooked! Not a page, chapter or minute was I bored or had a flat feeling. I was truly rapt in the story, and had a hard time when having to put the book down. It had something for men, and for women. It was action packed, I mean fully loaded, for the guys. And it had a softer, more romantic side for the ladies. By now means a Harlequin, this is a hard hitting story that I can wait for the sequel!!
Get a copy as soon as you can, and enjoy the trip!

What a thrill ride! This book grabbed me right from the get-go and kept me glued to my seat with every twist and turn of the page.
The hero, Kane Silver is a charismatic figure who due to the most unfortunate of circumstances, finds himself teamed up with two ex cons, and even though the scenario was incredulous at times, the fast-paced action of their adventures has left me wanting to know more about this trio.
Bravo Mr. Halverson-this was a great read!
