It's only when Emma's ex boyfriends start appearing in her dreams, showing her how she let them all down by putting deadlines before their relationships, that she realises she is doing the same thing again and may lose Sam.

I received this arc in exchange for an honest review. This book was so good. Even though the idea of Scrooge and Christmas past, present and future are often written about, this book was a fresh and delightful take on it. The book features Emma and Sam. Emma’s main focus has always been to work hard and succeed at her job. She pushes away all of the men she dates as they are not as important as getting ahead at work. Sam is also driven to succeed at his job and volunteer position but he puts his ...more

What would you do if by some Christmas magic you find yourself changing places (sort of) with Ebenezer Scrooge? Would you heed the lessons shown to you by the men in your past? Or would you ignore what is right in front of your eyes if you’d only truly “see” your actions for what they truly are or the consequences of those actions on those you love? This is the situation that Emma finds herself, and whether she saves her (future) life with Sam or not is entirely up to

Edie Grace is a new author for me to read books written by. Boyfriends of Christmas Past is a quick read, not a great deal over a hundred pages. I was able to read it in an afternoon, especially easy to do so because it stayed interesting. The Scrooge theme has been done before but I found the ex-boyfriends instead of ghosts to be extremely humorous.

Emma’s story of fearing commitment is not particularly comic just the idea of old boyfriends showing up to guide her is. Emma is likable to all, any

A fun twist on the classic Christmas tale, A Christmas Carol.

When Sam finally had enough, he broke up with Emma. He wanted a woman who would be there when he needed her and would put more effort into their relationship.

Emma gets a serious wake-up call when several of her ex-boyfriends come to her in her dreams

A different spin on the classic Christmas Carol story. For Emma, a workaholic her idea of work before play seems to always be just work, work, work.

Unknowing to her she's on the same path as she's been in the past. With Christmas Eve drawing near she gets visited by 3 old boyfriend ghosts who come bearing the gift of ...more

Boyfriends Of Christmas Past is a delightful mash-up of Dickens’ famous Christmas story though the star of this story is workaholic Emma Wallace who has a track record of putting her career before the people who should matter in her life. This story is witty, funny at times, and filled with those home truths we all need to hear. With Emma’s relationship with her boyfriend Sam heading for the rocks I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry as I watched scenes from her past appearing before her eyes. ...more

Emma is visited by past boyfriends in her dreams. They take her on a journey to show her that her behavior is typical for her. Can she realize her ...more

This book was a great rendition of Christmas Carol story. Emma just works, works and works some more. Her romantic life suffers because of this. On Christmas Eve she is visited by three of her past boyfriends. They each show her something different. Will they make her realize that perhaps what she needs is right there in front of her? This book was a really great read. I voluntarily reviewed this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is such a creative and engaging take on A Christmas Carol with a driven woman finding she is more Scrooge-like that she ever thought. Visits in apparition form of her old boyfriends show her how she is making a huge mistake in her current relationship and how she is going to lose the love of her life unless she takes some drastic measures.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Boyfriends of Christmas Past is my new favorite Christmas romance. Edie Grace gives readers a modern retelling with some twists of the classic Christmas Carol. I loved the characters. I couldn't put this one down until I knew how everything would turn out. I can see myself reaching for Boyfriends of Christmas Past anytime I'm wanting the feels of the holiday season.

Loved this book,I honestly didn't want it to end.Loved the whole Charles Dickens spin + a little ghosts of ex- boyfriends past thrown in there to show Emma the error of her ways before she loses her current boyfriend Sam for good.After this book I can't wait to see what Ms.Grace comes out with next.
