Love Me By Christmas
by Jaci Burton
BLURB 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.

Love Me By Christmas is a sweet, sexy holiday novella. It is the holiday season, but Ellie Washington doesn’t find much joy in it. She lost her beloved husband at Christmas five years ago. The only things that get her through it is her son, Henry, and her late husband’s brother, Nick. Lately, she is noticing her feelings changing toward Nick. She notices how good-looking he is and being near him gives her tingles. She couldn’t possibly be falling in love with him, could she?
Nick was glad to help Ellie and Henry. He took her into his home while she was still pregnant. Taking care of her and Henry helped him deal with the grief he had when he lost his brother. He also is realizing his feelings for Ellie are changing as well. Is it wrong for him to love his dead brother’s wife?
I liked both characters, and the slower development of their relationship. It made the love they had for one another realistic. They both feared if things didn’t work out that it would forever change their relationship.
“Love isn’t always logical. Neither is fear.”
I love a good holiday romance, and I loved this one! It is a novella, but Burton definitely packed it full of emotion. This one is the perfect combination of romance, spice, and emotion! If you are looking for a magical holiday read, look no further than Love Me by Christmas by Jaci Burton.
