Corporal Callahan Crowes returns home from Afghanistan missing part of a leg and haunted by guilt over the loss of his men. He pledges to live every moment of his life to the fullest and works to build a career in the only field he knows besides being a soldier: construction.
Reeling from her fiancé’s infidelity and their broken engagement, Kathleen O’Connor accepts a job far away from Boston and the suffocating pity of friends and family. She puts romance firmly behind her, and, armed with her shiny new architectural degree, launches her career with a commercial construction and design firm.
Her first day on the job, she sees Cal risk his life to rescue a fellow worker, and is shocked when his act of heroism triggers an unwarranted attack on him from her supervisor. When she learns Cal may lose his job because of his leg, Kathleen urges him to use social media to fight the decision, putting her own job at risk.
The public firestorm pushes Cal into the limelight in ways he least expects, but shows him a missing limb’s not the barrier to love he's believed it is. But there’s something besides business politics brewing at work, and when Kathleen’s life is threatened, she discovers there’s more to a man than two good legs—it’s the size of his heart that counts.

I loved this book. I liked the romance with the mystery. I like that the characters were realistic and felt that readers could relate to them. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more of Teresa J. Reasor's books.
Once I started reading, I could not stop. Kathleen is tough and does not back down. She stands up for what’s right and she does not play games. She’s been hurt by her ex-fiancé and best friend. She’s a little leery of Cal since he’s so handsome and she feels frumpy. Cal is an ex-Marine who feels inadequate as a man because of his leg prosthesis. Together, they bring out the best in one another and strengthen those weaknesses. I really enjoyed reading Cal’s point of view. Usually the heroine is the one with the self-esteem issues. The hero shined thru as a true down-to earth hero. He’s suffered survivor’s remorse, jilted while still in the hospital and family wanting to treat him like a cripple. Not to mention depression and learning to live without part of his leg. Then the plot thickens. It seems it is a very small world. There were many twists and turns that kept me guessing to the end.
