Blurb: After seven years in Canada, Korean native Jae-ho Kim still hasn’t had the special Christmas Eve date night that he would have enjoyed back home – a fact that has his sister, Soon-kyu, very uset during their yearly phone conversation. This year, Jae’s lack of effort concerning his love life comes back to haunt him in the form of Christmas Eve ghosts, showing him very vividly what will become of him if he refuses to take a chance and find a date for Christmas Eve.

Review: Jae has studied and lived in Canada for seven years, moving from Korea for his love of art and to be somewhere more accepting of his homosexuality. He also happens to have a crush on his boss, Peter Wei.
When Jae starts having his “Christmas Carol” moments, the story not only gains momentum but it is amusing, not just the situation but also the actual banter between Jae and his “ghosts”. We also learn a fair bit of background, which is very satisfying.
Jae isn’t a Scrooge, but this is a fun read and is an interesting modern-day spin on the Charles Dickens classic. After the spirit of Christmas Future visits, I feel that there is room for another kinky story with Jae, as long as that future doesn’t happen!
