Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's WoW selection is...

The Christmas He Loved Her (Bad Boys of Crystal Lake, #2) 
Series: Bad Boys of Crystal Lake #2
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Publication Date: 10/1/13

All he wants this Christmas is her.

In the small town of Crystal Lake, Christmas is a time for sledding, hot chocolate, and cozying up to the fire with those you love. For Jake Edwards, it’s also time to come home and face his past. He thought there would never be anything harder than losing his brother. Turns out there is: falling in love with his brother’s widow, Raine.

Ever since they were little, Jesse was the Edwards brother who was always there for her, and Jake was the one who knew just how to push her buttons. Raine can’t imagine a life without them, which is why it was doubly decimating when Jake left town after his brother’s sudden death. Now he’s back and she doesn’t know whether to be mad or thrilled. Maybe both. Maybe it will be the perfect chance for both of them to finally find happiness again.

Why I'm Waiting ~ I've actually had a copy of this one for a while, but was waiting a little closer to the holidays to read it. Based on what was happening in the first book, this one is going to be outstanding.

Update: I actually got a chance to read this earlier than I anticipated. Absolutely gorgeous, heart-breaking, and romantic. I loooooved it!

What do you think of my pick? Be sure to let me know and I'll come check out your WoW.
