Last Christmas, Kenn Greyson gave husband Chris Martenson an ultimatum—spend more time with the family or we’re leaving. He never expected Chris’s reply would be “then leave,” but that’s exactly what happened, and Boxing Day took on a whole new meaning.
Separated for nearly a year now, both men are miserable apart and coping the best they can for the kids’ sake. With Christmas just around the corner, a new conflict arises: neither man is willing to forego Christmas morning with their children. Chris finally suggests they spend the holiday together at the house and, to his shock, Kenn agrees.
Armed with the knowledge that he’s been a stubborn idiot, but that perhaps he can change and begin to repair their relationship, Chris takes steps to win his husband back. He just hopes he can get Kenn on the same page before Santa comes down the chimney on Christmas Eve.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Advent Calendar package “Sleigh Ride”.
This is something quite different from Sean Michael usual stories and I really enjoyed it!
This is a second chance at love story. It’s been almost a year since Kenn Grayson challenged his workaholic husband about his hours. Without thinking it through Kenn delivered an ultimatum – ignore the work call or he would leave with the kids. Chris called his bluff and told him to go. It didn’t work out like either planned or the way either wanted but they are both as stubborn as each other.
A year later and Christmas has arrived again. The two men are living separate lives. Kenn no longer indulges his art, too busy holding down two jobs and looking after the kids. Chris spends very little time at home, it just doesn’t feel like home anymore without his husband and kids there. When Kenn has a crisis and reaches his limit Chris comes through for him but can they resolve their problems and go back to being a family?
This is a feel good story just in time for Christmas that will leave you with a smile on your face.
