Publisher's Summary

Luca feels like he’s been asleep for a hundred years, but really it was just one bad night. He wakes up in a room he’s never seen before, with a note from a mysterious stranger who seems to have come to his rescue.

Before he can sneak out, he finds himself face-to-face with his gorgeous knight in shining armor. It turns out that Ryan saved him from more than just a bad hangover.

In a day that feels like a dream, Luca and Ryan discover their attraction, but as a simple tailor and a club bouncer, they’re completely opposite.

Could this really be true love? 

Rise and Shine is a steamy, stand-alone MM romance novella featuring a match-making Labrador, too much pizza, just the right amount of sofa snuggles, and a guaranteed HEA with absolutely no cliff-hanger.

Love it!!

This is a short listen but I absolutely love this story! I have been loving Helen Juliet retelling of classic fairytale. So I love this Sleeping Beauty retelling so much. I love Luca and Ryan's short story. Kieran Flitton is absolutely amazing. I just love listening to his voice. Even with a short story.

Sweet insta-love story.

Sweet insta-love story. A retelling of sorts of Sleeping Beauty. Lovely.
Apart from the epilogue the whole story takes place in one day, when Luca wakes up in Ryan's apartment with no recollection of the night before.
A sweet short story for the romantics at heart!

So Sweet!

I loved this story so much! I'm fond of both the MCs and Briar the adorable dog. I just wished that it was longer.

The narrator is new to me. I enjoyed listening to his voice so much that I finished this in one sitting.

I recommend this audiobook, and will check out other works by both the author and the narrator.

Rise and Shine

sweet, low angst. as with most short stories, I wish it could have been longer to get to know the characters better but still a great story.

the narrator is new to me but I think he did a great job and will seek out more of his work in the future.

WOW!! So sweet!!

A wonderful present-day retelling of the sleeping beauty fairytale with a MM twist and an HEA, is simply a perfect reading. When Luca waked up to a dream full of sweet romantic situations in between hot scenes, with Ryan as his personal prince charming, the result was this wonderful short story. Of course, Mr Flitton's performance while reading it with his smooth voice, a lot of charism and great actimg just made hearing this book even more enticing. Just WOW!

Just Perfect

I loved listening to this book. Even though it was a short listen, Helen Juliet really made you feel the love/passion between Luca and Ryan. It was just perfect!
Kieran Flittons take on the characters was amazing. He is a wonderful narrator and I will be looking for more of his work to listen to.
