Amy has kept her distance from men after her sleazy ex took everything from her—everything but her daughter, Paisley, whom Amy would do anything to protect. She’s learned to keep her guard up, but it’s getting harder and harder to do around a man like Mike, whose penetrating gaze leaves her speechless. Mike is unlike any man Amy has ever met. He’s patient, kind, a loving father, ripped, and, amazingly, seeming way into her. Still, Amy makes it clear that she has no intention of the two of them being more than friends. But when threats from her past put Paisley in danger, Amy finds that more with Mike just might save her life…and her heart.

She’d dated before, she reminded herself. But it didn’t help. This was different. It felt different. It felt important, and because of that she was infinitely more worried that she was about to screw it up.
She watched the road. Right turn. Left turn. She looked back over her shoulder, but couldn’t see the house anymore.
This was crazy. She wasn’t going to make it through the whole night like this. She’d have a heart attack. Or a stroke. Or a nervous breakdown.
“I got you something,” he said.
She watched as he pulled a small, square box from his pocket. Her heart tripped in her chest as her mind raced through the different jewelry pieces that could be inside. Surely he hadn’t bought a ring. That would have been insane. They hadn’t even gone on a real date. Plus, if he knew her at all he’d know she was impossible to shop for.
She nearly rolled down the window because there wasn’t nearly enough oxygen in the cab for them both to stay conscious.
“Take it,” he said, extending his arm her direction.
“You didn’t have to get me anything.” She should have gotten him something. Was that what people did on dates?
She took the small box, biting the inside of her cheek as she opened the lid. Inside wasn’t jewelry. No gold or silver. No diamonds or other precious stones.
It was buttons.
Twenty or so of them. All different colors and shapes. Some looked almost antique, others like they’d fallen off the girls’ clothes. There was one in the shape of a copper penny, and another made of thick burlap. All of them were unique, like the pieces she could make with them.
“I’ve been saving them for you,” he said, sounding a little uncertain. “I thought you might be able to use them for one or two of your projects.”
She could already picture a collection of them sewn onto one of her simple black dresses in the closet. Or some of the bigger ones on a hairpiece or a brooch.
“Thank you,” she said, her chest tight. It was the nicest thing anyone had ever gotten her.
