A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn

How did I get the book?  I bought it.6933600

Genre: Fairytale Retelling

First Impression: Looks fun.

Synopsis: 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?

200 words (or less) review: I remember holding Beastly and A Kiss in Time in my hand and picking this over Beastly. Since then I have read both but I still prefer A Kiss in Time.

The story is told in alternating chapters from Jack and Talia’s point of view. Neither of these two is particularly endearing to begin with. In fact Talia is a Princess with a capital P(ain) and not very happy about Jack breaking the curse. With little choice after bringing shame to the kingdom she follows Jack into the “real” world.

There are some charming moments in the story, Talia’s reaction to modern life such as the clothes and her endeavour to reunite Jack with his family win you over. Jack himself grows as he starts to care for Talia.

A Kiss in Time is incredibly cheesy but that’s what I expected. It was funny and sweet, perfect for when you want a happy end.

Recommend it?
