A Fighting Man by Sandrine Gasq-Dion

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.

I have some other books in this series but I really have to sya that this is my favorite one. The author did an amazing job with Casper’s character and the battle that he has went through, and is still going through, when it comes to his previous relationship.
He has an awesome personality, one that you couldn’t help by love him when the book started. The author wrote his feelings very well to the point where when he was happy, you were happy. When he was sad, you were sad.
Now with Slater’s character, I have to say that as much of a brat as he was, he was extremely well written. The determination that he had when he knew what he wanted, was just amazing. He did not give up no matter what.
Watching as the relationship started between these two men was one that was really sweet to watch and follow along with it as they both dealt with the fears that they both had. There were quite a few parts in this book that made me tear up, so I would really recommend having some tissues handy.
All in all, I would say that if you enjoy books that have the military theme, and aren’t an insta-love, then I would really recommend this book.
