Book Review: A Kiss In Time by Alex Flinn

Title: A Kiss In Time
Author: Alex Flinn
Published: 16th June 2010

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?

My Thoughts:
This is my second book that I have now picked up by Alex Flinn, I first read Beastly, and, truthfully, I do prefer A Kiss In Time much much more.

Jack is...a jerk before Talia comes along. He uses Talia and doesn't respect her when they first meet. I loved the development of Jack throughout the book when he eventually does listen to what Talia says. The book is narrated by two characters, Jack and Talia, and it is interesting to read the different narration mainly because of the century difference that separates them.

The ending was different and fit well with the direction of the book and I think this is another great interpretation of a fairytale with a modern twist.

Recommend or Not? Yes, I would recommend. A modern romantic fariytale that everyone should read.
