This wasn't a case of the hero (Jasper) arriving in the nick of time, but rather too late. Callie survived a horrific attack that left the broken pieces her body replaced with metal parts. She eventually comes away with it with a new sense of self. I liked that Jasper is supportive of her and lets her know he still loves her. My favorite part of the book was when Callie told Jasper, "...then I'm strong enough to be equal partner in my own marriage. We make decisions together from this point forward."
Both are heroic. I enjoyed this.
