Sleeping Cutie (Faded Fairytales Book 2) by Tanzania Glover
“A prince who is anything but charming.”
Christian Logan’s goals in life are simple: make as much money as possible and be the antithesis to everything his goody two shoes older brother Cameron stands for. He’s insistent on not opening doors, indignant at the thought of picking up a check, and adamant about his chivalry ending at saying “bless you” after a sneeze. But when he comes across an unusually tired damsel in distress sleeping on a bench in Central Park, he can’t help but to temporarily act out of character and come to her rescue. Now he wonders if the whirlwind of events that followed meeting the snarky and narcoleptic Amber Miller mean that he should reconsider the way he’s been living and in doing so he begins to realize that he has much more in common with Cam than he ever realized.
The Faded Fairytales Series follows Logan brothers Cameron, Christian, and Chasen on their individual quests to conquer love, sex, and maturation while also grieving and attempting to rebuild their fractured brotherhood.
