Asha's Kisses by RaShelle Workman

Volume One in this new Ever After series that retells the story of Sleeping Beauty and takes place in the BLOOD AND SNOW world.

“By day’s end on her eighteenth birthday, she will be stabbed through the heart… and die!” ~ Mizrabel

Seventeen-year-old Asha has always preferred to stay out of the spotlight, but during a rehearsal for her high school's rendition of Romeo and Juliet she realizes that starring in the right kind of role might be better than she thought. 

Series Summary:  
Cursed as a baby by a malevolent sorceress, Asha is left without the protection of her fairy magic. Her parents, fearing for their daughter’s safety, enlist the help of their three most trusted guards—who whisk Asha into the human world under a blanket of magic. 

For nearly eighteen years Asha has lived as a normal human, doted on by her three aunts. 

Without magic.
Without her parents. 
And, without the knowledge of her curse. 

But that’s about to change. 

One night, a few weeks before graduation, Asha decides to disobey her aunts’ rules and go to a party. When she arrives, there’s a bonfire, lots of beer, and a mysterious guy named Paxton. No one seems to know who he is. Asha can’t stop staring at him. He’s everything her aunts have told her to stay away from. 

When Paxton saves her from the overzealous actions of a drunken classmate, their lives become inexplicably intertwined. His touch rouses more than her desire for him. It awakens her long-hidden magic.

My Review:

Asha's Kisses is the retelling of the Sleeping Beauty...Asha lives with her Aunts (similarities to the fairy in the Disney movie) because as an infant she was cursed.  Asia's life is just like any typical teen but that all changes when she falls for the ever popular Lawson.  One night she is saved by a mysterious boy named Paxton who seems to have awakened her magic.

RaShelle is an amazing author and I absolutely loved this story.  The story is very short and left us wanting to know more but I have a feeling there is still a lot in store for Asha :)
