QSR: Scrooge-ish by LB Dunbar

On This episode of a Quick Shot of Romance Becky and Heather are reviewing Scrooge-ish by LB Dunbar. Scrooge-ish is a novella re-telling of A Christmas Carol in Kindle Unlimited.

Synopsis:  From Goodreads  

I hate Christmas. 
I don’t know who thought every female must love shopping, wrapping, baking, and hosting, but I’m missing the memo. On top of that, I manage a top-end department store. Sprinkle in the fact I’ll be turning forty during this holiday season, and my life is a Christmas cookie recipe gone wrong. 
And every year I become a little more Scrooge-ish
But the spirit of the most wonderful time of the year (insert sarcasm) seems to have a plan for me and my midlife crisis attitude. 
First, my past returns when I attend a high school reunion happy hour and run into that boy—the one I had a summer fling with after graduation and before college—then promptly ghosted me. 
The torture continues because that boy is now a man, worldly and wise and sexier than I remember. And he invites me to attend a holiday work party with him. 
Which leads to my discovery that there is a lot more to this forty, fine, former NFL quarterback, now fireman, like being a single father to the sweetest little girl, putting me at risk of falling for both of them. 
However, I have my reasons not to believe in love and the happiest time of the year. And the first twenty-five days of December tests all my strength. 
Just what the Dicken is happening? Charles himself might approve of this plot. 
Even I’m a little curious to see how it all plays out.
