Title: A Healing Man
Dario Ramos thought he’d left the fighting behind in the war zone when a life-threatening injury sent him home. But a certain Irishman crossing his path everywhere he went convinced him that his biggest battle might be ahead. Tiernan Callahan is a bigoted jerk. Ramos finds himself constantly in the man’s orbit, even in a city as big as New York. The wounded warrior knows all about pain and loss — and that sometimes anger is the only form of release. When Tiernan once again crowds Ramos’ space, his eyes are opened to the possibility of other forms of release.
Tough NYC cop Tiernan Callahan is still mourning the death of his beloved youngest brother, Mason. Fearing his close-minded family’s reaction, the young soldier never got to tell them his secret — that he was gay and engaged to the love of his life. Tiernan is surviving on anger and guilt. When he continues to run into Dario Ramos, who continues to push his buttons, something inside him snaps. Suddenly, anger isn’t the only emotion he feels.
Two very different men, still trying to heal: Can they come to an understanding and heal each other?

Not all scars are visible. Tiernan Callahan knows that better than most. He lost his baby brother to war. His death let the entire Callahan family know they had lost him before he ever left this country. Mason never told any of his family about his fiance thus his sexuality. Tiernan is having to deal with the anger over the secrets and lack of trust alone. He is angry and has no one to take out his frustrations on but the people around him. This makes him a pain to work with and an ass in general. One too many complaints at work and his captain assigns him something that he is sure will fix most of his surly personality.
Dario hates the entire Callahan family for what they have done to his friend Casper. The fact that he seems to run into the sexy cop Tiernan everywhere he goes has gone past aggravating. Dario is trying to simply live his life. He’s working with wounded warriors like himself, assisting them getting back into a routine of normalcy, helping them come back from a war zone. This experience allows him to see something else that rides right along side of Tiernan’s anger and animosity. Dario seeing something else where Tiernan is concerned. This allows for so many other opportunities that both men quickly find themselves deep into completely uncharted territory.
I’ve only read two books in Sandrine Gasq-Dion’s Men of Manhattan series. For the most part A Healing Man does work as a stand-alone. There is some background built for this story in A Fighting Man. That is the other book that I’ve read in this series. I can honestly say though that A Healing Man can be enjoyed as a stand-alone. I’m looking forward to finding out who will get the next book. There were several possibilities introduced here.
