Publication Date & Length: December 7, 2015 – 200 pgs


A classic tale takes off in sexy new directions! Poor Mr. Dickens must be twirling in his grave.

When E.B. Scrudge, putz extraordinaire and all-around numbnuts, is visited by his dead ex on Christmas Eve, he can’t imagine how his life could sink any lower. But the three ghostly spirits that come along after are even worse! Good lord, a dyke, a drag queen, and rounding out the trio, a big, hunky bear with nipple rings and a butt plug! What’s next?

What’s next is a good deal of soul-searching and some hard lessons learned with a dash of redemption thrown in for good measure.

And love too, believe it or not. Love that had been simmering all along at the heart of Scrudge’s miserable existence, although he was too selfish to see it—until a trio of holiday beasties pointed his sorry ass in the right direction.

E.B Scrudge is not a nice man at all… Between the way he treats his employees or the way he treats people in general.

He must go through a ghost from his past and 3 ghost who visit him through the night to realize the way he has been acting towards people is just wrong!

I really like this authors twist on this Christmas story and the way he writes these characters!

I really do not want to give away any spoilers so I will leave this review with this was a cute twist on a classic Christmas story between two men, one who was not very nice to people who are in his life and around him. Then there was one man who loved his boss even though he treated him badly and did everything he could to make sure his mother who is very sick was taken care of.

All together I really liked this Christmas story!
I would recommend this book!
