Series Review: Faded Fairytales by Tanzania Glover

Posted February 24, 2022 by Angie in Book Reviews / 0 Comments

Faded Fairytales is a Contemporary Black Romance trilogy following the Logan brothers: Cam, Christian, and Chase. And if you couldn’t tell be the titles, they’re all based on fairy tales! I really liked how each story was used to make these romances. It’s not too over-the-top as to not fit the setting, but it’s also still obvious enough that they’re recognizable.

I did like the first book, Thickerella, the best. Cam is such a sweetheart and he spoils Tillar. I mean, absolutely spoils her! He also had a pretty interesting backstory, which wasn’t something I’d read before. It’s nothing too out there, but something that probably does happen more than we think about. Tillar was also a fun character. At times her personality did feel forced, but that can actually be said for the women in all three books.

Sleeping Cutie probably had the most interesting premise, and should have been the one I enjoyed the most, but it was my least favorite. Christian is just straight up awful. He is the absolute worst. Yes, his is a redemption story, but OMG…if I was one to DNF, I would have within the first few pages. Does he change? Technically yes, but it took my least favorite trope in the universe to force it upon him. I sensed no real growth and he definitely did not apologize for any of the heinous words that came out of his mouth. However, it was the first book I ever read featuring narcolepsy.

As for Trapunzel, I liked it because it does use two of my all-time favorite tropes: stranded together and most of it happens one day. But it was overall rushed. Nicole and Chase already had history from Thickerella, and they basically reunite here. The first half of the book felt like a recap of their lives and history, then there’s a good chuck in the middle of their misadventure, but then it just ends. It is the shortest of the three, so I finished it in no time. But I did want more time with them!

Overall, Faded Fairytales is a pretty good series. I loved the premise behind the books, but they didn’t fully deliver.

“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.

“A reluctant princess who’d rather break balls than attend them.”

Never seen with a hair out of place, Nicole Jones has a great life by anybody’s standards. She was adopted at birth and welcomed into the loving Jones Tailoring family of Atlanta and she’s now co-owner of a burgeoning fashion boutique with her best friend Tillar. Although she’s eternally grateful for the life she was given, she still can’t ignore that empty void that just wants to know where she came from. After secretly searching for most of her life, she finally gets a lead on her birth parents’ whereabouts and refuses to let anything, not even the worst blizzard on record for New York state, stop her from getting the answers that she’s looking for. But when a series of unfortunate events land the proud man-eater on the world’s worst road trip with middle Logan brother Chasen, she finally begins to understand why no one ever lets their hair down around him.
