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.

You gave me the happy tingles, the cheesy grins, the heart flutters and the stomach butterflies. We were first introduced to Casper and Slater in the previous book (Casper is Blaine's assistant and Slater is Spencer's brother). Slater is smitten from the first introduction and Casper wants nothing to do with him. The scene was set for quite the chase because Slater Cassidy was not taking "no" for an answer. Casper Kennedy is a man carrying a deep emotional scar. Three years ago, Casper's fiance died while in combat oversees. Casper still mourns the love of his life and has vowed never to get involved with another military man. His focus is firmly set on furthering his advertising career and not on pursuing any type of romantic life. Slater Cassidy is an army ranger that oozes confidence, sexuality and an all around good time. He's not shy about his bisexuality, lives his life out and proud and loves life in general. He's very close to his family and friends and is finally looking to settle down. He's sets his sights on Casper and intends to use every trick he can to get the man to go on a date with him. "Are you stalking me?" "I don't like to think of it as stalking. I prefer to think of it as quietly observing from far away without the other person's knowledge." It's clear that although Casper acts annoyed by Slater's antics, he's flattered by the attention and very much attracted to the irresistible man. Slater's charms are too difficult to resist and the two men begin a relationship. However, Slater is still a military man and will have to go back oversees for his next tour of duty after his leave is over. Can Casper overcome his fears of losing another military man? And what happens when an accident puts all those fears to the test? I really, really enjoyed this one. Slater's easygoing and lovable personality drew me in like a moth to a flame, and Casper's vulnerability pulled at the heartstrings in just the right way. That combination absolutely worked for me. The author was able to pack quite the emotional punch in such a short novella which is always a pleasant surprise. However, I do have a couple of grievances. Casper flipped the switch too quickly for me. I don't think Slater gave enough chase. Once the two got together it was full steam ahead and that threw me off. I expected a little bit more of a challenge or at least a transition period. Second, as I've come to expect with short novellas, the ending was rushed. So much was packed into the last 20% that my mind was spinning at times. If you're going to take the plot in the direction it went in, then spend the time to give it the care and attention it deserves. Glossing over issues with time jumps doesn't sit well with me. But, even with the issues I had, in the end this still left me with a big ol' cheesy smile on my face. "I'm the guy who pursued you, sent you a stripper and a singing telegram. I'm the guy who walked into the middle of your meeting and took you out to dinner. I'm also the guy who can make you happy, if you'll let me. 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." I can't wait to see what's in store with the future couples. Especially with a certain wounded military man and NYPD officer. Bring it boys!

    What a great little book. There's something to be said for authors who manage to write a full story in a short number of pages. Kudos for Ms. Gasq-Dion. This story centers around Casper, who is still getting over a tragic loss, and Slater, the cocky ranger who wants him. What I loved: *The emails/messages. I am a total sucker for any kind of text messages/emails/skype sessions. Love great banter between characters. *This was a low angst, easy read.

    4 Stars This was by far the best of this series, so far, at least for me. I think the first two were a little iffy, this story seemed to have a lot more substance, it's still a novella so it's a quick read and parts still felt a bit rushed, but I really enjoyed Casper and Slater.

This is the third in the Men of Manhattan series by Sandrine Gasq-Dion. I read the first book A Betting Man and enjoyed it, but not enough to read the second book A Marrying Man. The reason I decided to read this book was because of the military component. The book started out fine, with cool, collected Casper Kennedy successfully avoiding über charming Army Ranger Slater Cassidy's many attempts to woo him. The back-and-forth was light and fun and set the book up to be a light and fun read. But then the tables turned and shit got real and serious and I just wasn't prepared for it with these characters. Maybe if I had known going in I would have felt differently because I'm a big hurt/comfort junkie, but this book just didn't work for me as it was presented. If you can handle the big change in character personalities mid-way through the book, I can recommend this one if you enjoy military and hurt/comfort angst. Otherwise, I'd look elsewhere.

    I loved this one. Casper made me cry for his lost of his loved one in war. I always have weakness for military men, especially who's struggle to heal and their loved ones who's losing them at war. Casper lost a man he loved once in war, and he's kind of restrained from Slater's attention. But I'm glad Slater is a stubborn man, and patient, even at the end of the last chapters, I wanted to smack his head so hard, but I loved him, still. The story was a little too short for me, I need to 'meet' them I loved this one. Casper made me cry for his lost of his loved one in war.

    3.5 stars I liked this one better than book 2, but not as well as book 1. Casper and Slater worked together, although I wanted more snark from Casper and more tough-guy from Slater. This is a fun, enjoyable series, even if all the books feel a bit rushed.

I loved Casper and I loved Slater. OK enough about all the things I loved lol. This was I think my favorite book in this series as far. I really wondered how the hell I am going to like Slater after meeting him in book 2, he was an arrogant asshat and a player - he was that guy your mother warned you about you know? That guy you would never ever take home.... I was pleasantly surprised by how much I turned out to love the guy. I loved the singing telegrams and stripper he sent to Casper. Casper the sexy ghost well he just clime in my heart and I just wanted to hold him. After everything he went through to fall in love with another Military guy. I loved how strong he actually was in handling all the shit. (He made me think of these words from a song by Jana kramer - Love) "I still believe in fairy tales I still believe in picking flowers I still believe in getting lost in someone's eyes I still believe in shooting stars And butterflies you get right before you kiss for the very first time Love, how many times can a heart break? Love, how much weight can a soul take? Love, I don't know where you ran off to But love, love, I still believe in you. ...." This book had me lying on the floor with laughter and curled up with tears flowing down my cheeks

    3.5 Stars A Fighting Man started out really strong for me. I like both MC's, I loved Slater's tenaciousness and Casper's snarkiness. I thought they were pretty well matched. The ending was rather anticlimatic, though. I wasn't left with that "yay!" feeling when I was done. I did like it better than book two, though.

At some point he had gone from major annoyance to the most important person in my life. Their personalities and banter really drew me into their story and although it was rushed at some points, it was still a very enjoyable read. I love me some military/cops romance so if that is one of your weakness' you will definitely enjoy this book!

You can’t help but love this series. These books are all well written and the characters (main and second ones) are so enjoyable and well depicted, I had the feeling of knowing them forever. Casper Kennedy is a 25-year old administrative assistant. He lost his lover, Mason, three years ago, they were engaged when Mason died in the field. He’s still missing Mason badly, so it’s hard to him to fall for the stubborn Sergeant that has his eyes on Casper. Slater Cassidy is an Army Ranger in Afghanistan, and from the first time he saw Casper, he knew he had to have the man. Now is coming home on leave for a month. Can it be enough to conquer Casper? He will try everything, from sending him a fake police officer to made a striptease, to a serenade with the Casper film’s theme song. After losing Mason, Carter is afraid to fall in love again, specially with a military guy, but thanks to an ad campaign and a little jealousy, Slater is slowly making his way into Casper’s life. Will Casper surrender to Slater? As I already said at the start on this review I really loved this book. First of all it’s a funny and easy reading, I particularly liked the dialogue parts, they were fast paced and entertaining. The double POV use is my fave, cause I need to know what goes through my characters’ mind and in this case, seeing them both struggle with their feeling till almost the end and overcome their fears was heartbreaking and hard to watch without being able to hug and reassure them, but so worth it. Some parts were really emotional, I’m thinking for example at the family aspect in this story. I ached for Casper, he was very unlucky with families. His parents don’t speak with him since he came out, Mason’s family didn’t even let him know Mason was dead. Finally he has found a new family in Slater’s mum, Raquel,(she rocks!) and in Blaine and Spencer. There’s a great support cast, funny and strong as Casper and Slater. I can see more couple in the future books. Highly recommended! Cover artist by Wilde City Press. Nothing special in this cover and all the others in this series. They are nice to look at but nothing more.

    A Fighting Man is book three in Sadrine Gasq-Dion's Men of Manhattan series. This was a cute, sweet little novella. It is short enough to read in one sitting and low angst enough to enjoy regardless of my frame of mind at the time. There is a little angst, can't have a romance novella without it; just not enough to bring me down. As a sequel, it was good to catch up with the characters in the previous two books.

There is a little angst, can't have a romance novella without it; just not enough to bring me down. As a sequel, it was good to catch up with the characters in the previous two books. One of the main characters in A Fighting Man is the brother of one of the main characters in A Marrying Man. Slater Cassidy and Casper Kennedy actually met in the previous book, but this is their entire story. Since Slater laid eyes on Casper, he has wanted him. He is an Army Ranger on deployment in Afghanistan, but that doesn't stop him from pursuing Casper relentlessly. He tries everything from flowers to a strip-o-gram to win Casper's affections. Casper has suffered a deeply painful loss in his past. One that has made him determined to close off his heart, especially to a soldier. He has to admit that he finds Slater almost irresistible. He is front and center in many of Casper's solitary fantasies. Both of these characters are funny, sexy, smart, and my personal favorite, sarcastic wise-asses. Ms. Gasq-Dion has written some very funny, fast paced dialogue between the two men and also the supporting characters in this story. A tragedy occurs that brings up painful memories and feelings for Casper and brings out the worst in Slater. Watching them both struggle to overcome their emotional and physical hurdles was a really good read. In a book like this, you kind of know how it is going to end, but getting there was great fun this time around. A few secondary characters that we meet in A Fighting Man are prime candidates for books of their own. I could see another couple of books in this series. I will be one of the first on line to buy them if they come about. The Men of Manhattan are an enjoyable lot and I hope to read more of them.

    I love this series. It gets better and better. This one is about Slater, Spencer's brother and Casper, Blaine's assistant. Slater is an active duty Ranger on a tour to Afghanistan. He has been attracted to Casper since January or the last book. To Casper, he is "hot", aggressive, cocky, and annoyingly charming man, but his "past" relationship that ended in "heartbreak" makes him want to stay away. Slater continues to pursues Casper even though he is adamant in his "NO" answer. Slater is "on leav I love this series. It gets better and better.

Through funny and very touching moments, Casper and Slater finally get together. Slater, previous "player" and skiddish Casper seem to be the perfect fit until Casper's worst nightmare becomes a reality. I shed a few tears several times in this book and laughed a lot. The author does a wonderful job with the characters. You cannot help but fall in love with both of them. Slater truly grows on you and everyone should have a "friendly ghost named Casper". We get to see Spencer and Blaine, but no signs of Kent and Terry. It is a great weekend or evening quick read. It kept me interested from the beginning to the end. I have to say I did not like the last page of the book. I wanted more to the story "a more descriptive epilogue". I think we fall for these characters and want a snapshot further down the road unless there is another book. I wanted "more" always more, but I guess a book has to end sometimes. Read it, you will not be disappointed!

Slater finally wears Casper down. But then tragedy happens and we see Slater at his worst... which lets us see him at his best...

And I've loved Casper the ghost boy since we met him in the previous books. My heart ached for both of these guys in this book and I'll admit to getting a little weepy in parts. Slater has the bestest family. I want them!! I'm hoping Casper's workout buddy and boss are the next book (I can't remember their names)! Bring it I am loving this series.

    Another good book in the series. Casper is still trying to fight off the unwelcome advances of Slater Cassidy, a ranger. He had been there with military men and he wasn't going there again. Slater however wears him down and the two get together. After being home on leave for a month, Slater goes back to Afghanistan only to be injured . From therre the relationship between the teo men hits the skids. Loved the secondary characters in the book and was happy that Casper and S Ater get their HEA.

    Brilliant! Loved it, for some reason I thought this was the last in the series but there needs to be more! So many characters, particularly Ramos, Slater's friend, are just amazing. I am constantly amazed by Sandy' s writing how she blends fun and laughter with hardship and tragedy, at the silly schoolboy moments that you just know have to be genuine anecdotes, it all adds up to a fantastic read :-)

    I love this series.They are fast paced full of witty banters and adorable couples.Till now Army Ranger Slater Cassidy is my favorite,the way he persistently goes after Casper,the gorgeous, smart, uber-snarky who wears some seriously strong armor when it comes to army men was highly entertaining to read. The story was fun filled so the cynic in me waited for the other shoe to drop and tragedy to strike and it did but that much can be overcome.Highly recommended series.

    4.5 stars Perhaps my favorite book of the series so far, probably because it had a touch of drama that the others lacked. I'm falling in love with this author's style! Re-read Nov 2019 Well, I didn't like it as much as I did the first time, probably because I don't much care for angsty books nowadays. Anyway, it was a very nice book, and I will continue rereading the series :)

When Casper tries to be there for Slater and he is basically rejected I almost died. Really great book and I hope Ramos is in another book or has a story of his own lol.

    Since I was first introduced to Slater, I was excited to get his story. His unapologetic, in-your-face character was intriguing. This novel was deeper than the first 2. In my opinion, this was the best of the series. It's going into my RE-READ pile for sursies!

    3.5 stars I love this series, I read 4 books in two days! I was glad that Casper and Slater got their HEA, but I didn't love this one as much as the previous book. The main couple and the secondary characters were delightful.

    A wonderful love story ignites between Casper and Slater in this third story of this captivating male/male romance series. I can’t believe I failed to mention the exquisite spitfire, Casper, in my reviews of the two previous books. Casper appeared in both books, but played a major supporting role in A Marrying Man as the male secretary who outright refuses the amorous attentions of man’s man Slater Cassidy, brother of Blaine’s amour Spencer.

I can’t believe I failed to mention the exquisite spitfire, Casper, in my reviews of the two previous books. Casper appeared in both books, but played a major supporting role in A Marrying Man as the male secretary who outright refuses the amorous attentions of man’s man Slater Cassidy, brother of Blaine’s amour Spencer. At the start of this book, Casper is still refusing Slater’s continued attentions, which have ratcheted up a notch despite Slater having returned to the Army for a tour of duty. Worse, it appears that both Casper’s immediate boss, Blaine, and his employer, Mathew Hawke, are facilitating Slater’s pursuit. Despite all of the emails, sing-a-grams, and a stripper whom Slater sends, Casper sticks firmly to his ‘not gonna happen’ rebuffs. Casper has a sound reason for rejecting the charismatic hound dog, but will it be enough to stop his heart from capitulating to Slater’s advances? Slater Cassidy has always played the field. As an Army Ranger he’s been upfront with his close-knit military buddies about his bisexuality: sex and a good time no matter the gender. If Slater is attracted to a person he goes for it. By rights when Casper refuses his initial advances, he should move on, but something about the plucky male secretary has him smitten. For the first time Slater has found someone he cares for more than his Ranger brothers. Determined to win the enchanting man, Slater schedules his upcoming leave with one mission in mind. He’s got one month to win Casper’s reluctant heart and he plans to give it his all. I enjoyed the heck out of the stimulating romantic chase between these two self-assured men, and learned what makes each of them tick. The revealing details of Casper’s professional and private life only increased my attraction to this spitfire-with-grit character. His ability to assert himself despite his grieving heart highlighted his resilient core and made him well worth the effort that Slater puts in. And Slater really pulls out all the stops, competing against a bevy of hot male models and squiring Casper to a fabulously decadent party, among other things. When tragedy strikes it is treated skillfully and responsibly with suitably sober but spirited passages that provide a realistic slice of military life and insight into what active duty forces face daily. Kudos to the author for making me cheer for the Rangers and the other soldiers of this tale. The animated “road to recovery” scenes brilliantly portrayed the guts and glory courage of these brave individuals. Lead characters from the other books return and make for a fine supporting cast in this story. Drakon, Spencer’s Twinkie-loving Greek employee, also returns and intriguing hints are dropped about his background. I was also treated to a glimpse of a seemingly shy, but hot, new character: part-time stripper Ryan, a gym bunny, um, “buddy” of Casper’s. My best guess—handsome head honcho Matthew Hawke hooks up with either Ryan or Drakon in the next book. Or…could it be—dare I hope—um, mayhap a threesome? Well, I guess I’ll have to wait and read—and read I will, because I can’t get enough of this fast-paced, clever and addictive romantic series. Thank you, Sandrine-Gasq-Dion, for delving deep and delivering another winner! “Starry-eyed Hope + Tremendous Courage = Lasting Love” NOTE: This book was provided by Wilde City Press for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews.

    Definitely one of Sandrine's better books. She has really focused on the actual couple and didn't have too many other characters swelling the ranks. The plotline with the Defence vets was a great reminder, along with MC Mason's prior love and experiences. A feel good book with a little pathos :)
