Talia fell under a spell. . . . 
Jack broke the curse. 

I was told to beware the accursed spindle, but it was so enchanting, so hypnotic. . . .

I was looking for a little adventure the day I ditched my tour group. But finding a comatose town, with a hot-looking chick asleep in it, was so not what I had in mind.

I awakened in the same place but in another time—to a stranger's soft kiss.

I couldn't help kissing her. Sometimes you just have to kiss someone. I didn't know this would happen. 

Now I am in dire trouble because my father, the king, says I have brought ruin upon our country. I have no choice but to run away with this commoner!

Now I'm stuck with a bratty princess and a trunk full of her jewels. . . . 
The good news: My parents will freak! Think you have dating issues? Try locking lips with a snoozing stunner who turns out to be 316 years old. Can a kiss transcend all—even time?

First Thoughts: Well, I loved Beastly, it was a fun read and I thought, "hey, I wonder if A Kiss in Time is fun to read to!" I have always wanted to read a modern retelling of one of my favorite fairy tale of all time, Sleeping Beauty.  

Cover: The cover is simple and pretty, I love the flower and the forming of the title, not too much and not too little.

Setting: I love the setting in the modern world and not in the castle of Talia.

Characters: I love Talia, she is hilarious. I love reading her point of view and how she lives in a world where she's no princess. I love her voice and attitude. So enjoyable. Jack was an okay character to me, but I love that he is so sweet after getting to know Talia and having the guts to say "I don't want you." to his cheating pretty ex-girlfriend.     

Plot- The plot is a fantastic and amazing retelling of Sleeping Beauty and I know I will read it over and over again.     

Recommends: To all fairy tale lovers and all of Alex Flinn's fans!!   

Rate: ★ 5/5 STARS!
