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?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast Read If you love cheesy teengers fantasy reads, you will like this one. Has a 24 years old, it was a little bit annoying by places. I did enjoy it, but will not read it again. The main characters were a bit hard to like at the beggining but I like fairy tales. I recommend it for summer reading.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good story This story is the retelling of the fairytale Sleeping Beauty. I have a read another book of Alex Flinn called Beastly (review coming up soon) and I have to say I like this book better. I am not really into fairytales so I wasn’t that much exited about reading it but I am glad I did! I loved it. She blends the story nicely into the modern world. I am not going to say much about the story most of you are aware of the Sleeping Beauty so I will go on how she interpreted things for this magic world. We have normal American Jack, which is the prince charming in this case, that goes on a trip in Europe. He gets bored one day and decides to explore Belgium with his friend until he meets Talia, our princess. With the wrong directions taken from the guy at the hotel they end up away from the city into the wilderness. They arrive at a 17th century castle. But all the people in it are asleep and when Jack sees Talia he wants to kiss her so bad that he can’t explain the urge. After that nothing is the same. He finds himself bound to this spoiled girl and the thing is his parents don’t believe him. Hiding a whole Kingdom in Europe was nicely explained and the end was surprising. I would never thought of actually having the kingdom as an attraction for tourists. Overall I liked a lot. It’s a sweet romantic story with witty characters and hilarious moments as Talia tries to handle the gadgets. The dialogue I think makes the book worth reading. It’s insanely funny. I would recommend this to anyone who likes fairytales and happily ever endings.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so great I actually listened to this book via an audio book download. I don't know if it was the female's voice or just the book itself but I did not like it. I liked the male character but found the female character to be obnoxious. I don't recommend it if you are looking for something good to read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun book This was a fun quick, read that amused me quite a bit. I read Beastly after this and was shocked they were by the same author. The characters grew and changed in believable ways and at normal speed. The hero was the typical jerky, oblivious teenage boy at the beginning but really became aware of himself and his attitude by the end of the book. Even the heroine was enjoyable. I would recommend this book over Beastly any day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A fun read After having enjoyed Beastly I didn't hesitate before giving A Kiss In Time a try seeing as Sleeping Beauty has forever been one of my favourite fairy tales. That being said, while overall it was pleasant, I had a hard time warming up to the female lead in Talia. There wasn't a whole lot that made me like her. I think that young readers will thoroughly enjoy this book. It's a quick escape to the magical land of Euphrasia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Read!!! I loved Beastly so I thought I would give A Kiss in Time a try. I was totally blown away. Alex Finn has a great talent of taking traditional fairy tales into great modern stories for modern teens! I'm really looking forward to his next book!!!
