Title: A Fighting Man
Army Ranger Slater Cassidy has a very special – very sexy – target in his sights. Meeting gorgeous, smart, uber-snarky Casper Kennedy was the highlight of Slater’s last trip home to New York. The soldier in him carefully plans his conquest. Unfortunately, Casper’s wearing some seriously strong armor and Slater’s charm offensives bounce right off. Casper’s refusal to fall for him is puzzling – not to mention incredibly annoying. When Slater gets leave again after grueling back-to-back tours in Afghanistan, all he wants is another shot at wooing Casper. He jumps right into the battle for the other man’s heart, but Casper does not intend to entertain the troops. A heartbreaking revelation changes the rules of romantic warfare, and Slater suddenly realizes he doesn’t just want Casper. He wants to capture his heart, too.
Casper Kennedy is fighting a losing battle. A certain outrageously demonstrative Army Ranger has been a thorn in his side since his last trip home – and the main character in his steamiest dreams. Now he’s back. He launches an all-out sensual assault and no matter how hard Casper pushes Slater away, the man somehow manages to inch closer. So close, in fact, that Casper’s once-impenetrable defenses are in danger of collapsing. Should he throw up the white flag and take a chance at love? Or start firing back and keep his heart protected? When the handsome Ranger shows his true colors, Casper just might have to surrender the fight.

Slater Cassidy has one goal on his rapidly approaching thirty day leave, get Casper Kennedy into his life by any means possible. He just has to have Casper and his wit with the side of attitude that makes him completely irresistible to Slater. The mission is simple and this sexy Army Ranger knows how to do get the job done. Slater is willing to go to any lengths to get Casper in his arms. It is these lengths that he goes to that bring many laughs to the pages of A Fighting Man. It is the attitude toward life that Slater has that makes you want this man to get his man.
Now let’s get on to the fighting. Casper is a fighter. (You were thinking soldier hottie was the fighter wasn’t you) Casper fights Slater every inch of the way. It is all with good reason though and it works so well with where Gasq-Dion is going with this flirty, sexy, fun tale. Casper knows heartache. Casper also thinks he knows what a player Slater is. He sees the fun side of the possibility of Slater. He (and everyone else) can’t help but see the insanely attractive side Slater. Casper also sees the potential hurt. Casper being the man he is tries his best to resist the temptation that is Slater.
A Fighting Man is written in first point of view. This is typically something that leaves me wanting more perspective. Sandrine did something I’ve only seen a couple of times, she switched between Casper and Slater. This is something that is clearly marked and the switch occurs at the beginning of a new chapter. Done this way I was never left wondering which of these men was in control.
The third installment in Sandrine Gasq-Dion’s Men of Manhattan series easily works as a standalone. The couples from the previous books are mentioned or have small secondary parts. Any reader can go into this one and thoroughly enjoy it regardless of not having read the others.
Favorite quote, Slater to Casper: “I want to be the guy who makes you smile in the morning. I want to be the guy who makes you laugh at night. I just want to be your guy.”
