Who doesn’t love a sweet character? I mean, sure, we all love the bitter morally gray assassin or the rage-fueled avenger or the smoldering love interest. But is there anything better than finding a character who is just the human personification of sweetness? A little cinnamon bun of a person who you just want to hug? Well, if you’re looking for someone sweet and fictional, I got you! Here is a list of characters who are just human cinnamon rolls!
Prince Kendrik From A Season of Sinister Dreams
Prince Kendrik is the sweetest little human who ever did walk this earth. He is so kind and adorable and nothing bad should ever happen to him. Of course, he’s also a prince of a kingdom on the precipice of disaster… so of course something bad happens to him. But gosh darn it if I wish it didn’t!
The Ankou from That Dark Infinity
Okay, okay, okay. No spoilers, I promise! I’m just saying, the Ankou is not so fearsome as he may first sound. In fact, he’s… a little weird. And by a little, I actually mean a lot – but what can you expect of an immortal monster hunter? But you know what, if I learned anything from my emo phase it’s that quiet weirdos who wear all black are secretly just little soft boys who could use a hug.
Xander Hawthorne from The Inheritance Games
Like the scones he so loves, Xander Hawthorne is just a pastry in human form. He is certainly the sweetest of the Hawthorne brothers, and he makes exploding robots! What more can you want out of the disinherited grandson of a billionaire? But watch out! Xander, like all the other Hawthornes, might just have a few tricks up his sleeves. And scones. He will also have scones up his sleeves. A boy’s gotta eat, right?
Arsalan from Sway With Me
ARSALAN MY BABY! Someone protect this sweetheart at all possible costs! He is a bookish nerd! He is an awkward little infant! He doesn’t know how to talk to girls! I love him! Arsalan may not know how to talk to girls, or most other people his age, but I guarantee you’ll fall for him just as hard as I did. Plus, this book has a dance designed to ruin an ill-fated wedding, and if that isn’t just the most brilliant plan, I don’t know what is.

Elijah Vance from Sidelined
We all love a bad boy, but do you know what’s even better than a bad boy? A bad boy who isn’t actually a bad boy. Elijah Vance has gotten the short end of the stick. People assume he’ll wind up like his screw-up dad. He returns to town with an unsavory past hovering over his head, but really he’s just a cutie patootie who deserves all the love in the world. But will his once best-friend Julian learn to trust him again? And could that friendship turn into something more…? Spoiler alert: squeal-worthy romance ahead!

Sam Alvarez from Our Way Back To Always
Sammy boy, oh sweet sweet Sam! I love Sam, so much! Not only is he hot, hot, hot. He’s totally got the hots for Lou Patterson – his once best friend now… something else. One disastrous middle-school mistake and four years later, they live in different worlds. But while Sam might seem like the golden boy, he’s mourning the death of his father all while struggling to deal with a future coming on quick. But don’t worry, a bucket list is waiting in the wings to reunite these two sweet peas! Trust me, you’ll love Sam and Lou before it’s all over!
