A sexy, standalone novella from the New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of the Play-by-Play series and Hope series.
Ellie Washington lost her husband in a tragedy five years ago at Christmas. She wouldn’t have made it through her grief if not for her husband’s brother, Nick, who helped her pick up the pieces of her shattered life. And with every year, her feelings for Nick have grown. Now she realizes she might be in love with him, but that’s not fair, because Nick deserves a life that isn’t about his brother’s widow and son.
Sharing his life with Ellie and her son has been the balm that soothed Nick’s soul after losing his brother. Now that friendship has turned into something deeper. Nick doesn’t want to upset the status quo, but someone has to make the first move, and it’s time they figure out if their feelings are real. Nick believes in what they have. He also believes in Christmas miracles, and he thinks they’re both long overdue for one.
This was such an easy read you guys. I read it from start to finish in one evening. GAH, how I’ve missed reading Jaci Burton! This was a sweet and poignant romance story. One of the best close-proximity reads I have read in a very long time. You know, a lot of times with close proximity story-lines, the HEA doesn’t seem realistic to me, but Jaci did an exceptional job with this one. She also made sure to not brush off some really important life circumstances that were added into the mix.
Right about now you’re thinking to yourself … could this reviewer be any more vague?! LOL Yes, I actually could LOL I just don’t want to tell you about the journey of Ellie and Nick any more than the blurb already has or you will miss out of experiencing this outstanding story of family, growth, trust, letting go, taking chances and fate 🙂 with a clean slate in your mind. No details. It’s the best way! #TRUST
