QueeReads – Christmas Blues – Episode 4

Cozy up and join Dustin Dufault as he reads the last installment of Christmas Blues tonight, Sunday, December 13 at 7 pm.

Sunday, December 13 – QueeReads – Christmas Blues (Part 4 of 4), 7 pm – 8 pm, written by Leigh Jarrett, hosted by Unicorns.LIVE, supported by Friends of Dorothy Lounge, and sponsored by Leigh Jarrett, read by the lovely Dustin Dufault ~ Online

After Ryan lost his wife to cancer, leaving him with three kids to raise on his own, he never thought he’d find any kind of companionship ever again. Especially not with someone like Michael.

The last time Ryan saw his little brother’s annoying childhood friend, Michael, he’d been a geeky, pimply-faced thirteen-year-old. That was just before Michael and his family moved to New York.

There was an eight-year age difference between them, and being in college at the time, Ryan had never wanted to waste his breath talking to some immature teenage kid when he could be doing homework or making out with his girlfriend instead.

Sixteen years later, a chance meeting at a coffee shop in Denver changes both of their lives. Michael, recently divorced from his wife, has two kids of his own, and a thriving recording studio.

Michael is no longer the Mikey Ryan remembers.

Getting the whole brood together for a Thanksgiving crafting extravaganza, and their mutual love of the blues cements Ryan and Michael’s friendship into something neither one of them could have ever expected. Christmas is fast approaching.

How far will their newfound friendship take them?

Contemporary Bisexual Romance, rated R: Restricted – Suitable for viewers only 18 and older due to coarse language, sexual themes, mature content of a sexual nature, alcohol consumption.
