Brilliant book with an awesome story, that I just couldn't put down, loved the author's interpretation of Helen of Troy, clearly doing their homework in Ancient Greece.

The author really engages with the reader with a good balance of humour, adventure, romance and twists that keeps the reader on the edge of their seats, wanting to read on.

The characters were brilliantly written so that you felt their pain, their doubts and their successes, willing them on throughout the book

Can't recommend this book enough, Loving in Time will be a fantastic read for young and old, male and female. Can't wait to read more from this author!

I loved this story the moment I picked it up.
It has the perfect combination of humor, mystery, romance, adventure and some all around good times.

I followed it as it was being written on wattpad, and each time it updated I couldn't wait to sit down and see what turn the tale took next.
As soon as she announced its publication I was thrilled and couldn't wait for it's release!

Abi Kirk is quite an engaging and talented writer, buying and reading is something I definitely recommend xD

I received an e-copy in exchange for a review for this book. Review by KatrinHollister on Wattpad.

"Loving In Time" is a loose re-telling of the story of Helen of Sparta in the modern world. A seemingly normal school girl gets visits from mysterious boys who seem to know more about her than they let on, and what unfolds is a story of self-discovery. This is a review after reading approximately a third of the book.

Helen is an entertaining main character whose thoughts are fairly typical for a young teen whose world is limited to normal social activities and school. Her relationship with her unpredictable, rambunctious best friend, Paris, is very sweet and relatable, as are the troubles and arguments that come along with being a teen. I feel the author has captured the essence of teenager-hood well with their hyperactive energetic personalities and liveliness.

The story flows well most of the time, although a bit slow for my taste and aside from the odd sticky sentences and over-telling of prose. There are no apparent information overload - a lot of backstory is given through dialogue between characters, which in my opinion is an excellent way to build the world for the reader - or noticeable inconsistencies aside from one so far. There was an incident where Helen walks out of her history class when wrongly reprimanded by the teacher. Since the beginning of the story, she has been shown as a timid girl - tries to be invisible, shy around others, unable to stand up to Paris, trembles during public speeches, mortified when put in the limelight - so I found it very strange she would have the courage to walk out of the class, particularly as there was no mention of her being angry at being wronged, only embarrassed, and no indication of any impulsivity in her personality.

I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.

Firstly, it was refreshing to read about a new topic that did not revolve around Vampires and Werewolves. The Greek myth is not a topic that I know well, being not all that interested in learning more of it. Abi has found a fun and humorous way to incorporate an old tale and spun it into a great story.

At times, I did find the young narrator Helen a tad trying......being the typical high school teenage girl whose sole focus seemed to be on how life wasn't fair, etc. But I think this highlights my age and the core audience the book is intended for. The one thing I found myself wishing was that the tale would have been set out of the high school and in a more mature environment, with an older Helen so that her character could have been explored and gone into more depth.

Saying that, I loved the actual writing of the book. The story flowed really well, with great descriptions of the surrounding scenes. I found myself easily slipping into the story and losing myself in it for the afternoon. For a first novel, Abi has succeeded in grabbing my attention and wishing for more. I will definitely be looking out for more from her in the future.

Loving in Time is a fantasy, and what a fantasy! I normally wouldn't read this genre but I started reading it and couldn't put it down. I was totally hooked! It has adventure, romance and fantasy, and is a tantalising historical book.

I would highly recommend Loving in Time, a great read for people of any age. Well done, Abi. I look forward to your next book!

This is an amazing book. Extremely well written and captivating. The story line is unique, and keeps you enthralled.

I have read this book twice now, and there are very few books that I do that with.

I enjoyed it just as much the second time around as I did the first. I still struggled to put the book down for work, and had to carry on reading it during my lunch break as I was dying to know what happened next.

The characters come alive, and I couldn't help but fall in love with them.

If you are looking for a book to keep you glued to it until the end, then I definitely recommend this one.

A.E.Kirk is an awe inspiring author
