Safia is an advertising executive at one on New York's most prestegious firms while Aidan is one of the Wall Street guys. Two people. Two separate lives. Both working to drown their heartache.
What neither realizes is that the loneliness and mundane nature of each day is about to change. Destiny and fate are real and just fairytale ideals. But love is a mystery and watching over them is a beauty who sleeps but sees all.
In a nearby hospital lies this beautiful girl who has slept for many months in a coma. Quiet and unassuming, yet she is the unlikely instrument that will bring Safia and Aidan together. This beauty sleeping touches everyone who passes by her room, and even those like Aidan and Safia who don't. Although neither knows it, this Beauty has a supernatural hold over them.
She will seal their fate and bring them together...but if fate is tempted, her power may also keep them apart.

Beauty Sleeping is a darker, more realistic twist on the classic Sleeping Beauty that gives narrative to the everyday choices leading up to those quintessential events so typical of classical fairy tales. The first half of the book progressed fairly slow for me but the latter half kept a good pace. The ending was kind of abrupt and felt unresolved, however, trying to riddle out the possibilities was actually one of the things I liked best about the book. Since this is first in series, the follow-up book will likely answer these questions too. It's the kind of story that sticks with you and makes you think as opposed to wrapping the ending up in a nice little bow. I liked that the story is told from several perspectives including Sleeping Beauty's but I'd like to see the author be more selective with her tangents and details so they don't distract the reader and prevent it from reaching its full suspense potential.
