The first step is the hardest Everything can change in an instant, police officer Shane Warner learns when he's shot in the line of duty. And his tough-pretty-physical therapist, Natalie Keaton, also knows it all too well. She wants to help Shane get better, but it's hard to see him as any different from the reckless cops who ruined her life. As they work to get him walking again, he's determined to change her opinion of him. If he can show her who he really is, his most important step will be the one that ends with Natalie in his arms.
