Stuck with You

The Hero: Lawyer Ross Bennett who's intelligent and sinfully handsome. He regards Paige Hart as a worthy adversary as she's just as smart, not to mention pretty.

The Heroine: Attractive lawyer Paige Hart who is very family oriented. She had her heart broken when she was in college and had a very bad experience with a divorce attorney thus she regards Ross Bennett as a snake, albeit a very charming yet still lethal one.

The Plot: Paige Hart and Ross Bennett couldn’t stand each other. Lawyers on opposite sides of a divorce case, there was nothing but bad blood between them... until a courthouse bombing threw them together. Exposed to the same rare and little-understood Tibetan Concupiscence Virus, the two archenemies were quarantined for seven days in one hospital room. As if that weren’t bad enough, the virus’s main side effect was to wreak havoc on human hormones. Paige and Ross found themselves irresistibly drawn to one another. Succumbing to their wildest desires, they swore it must be a temporary bug-induced attraction, but even after they parted ways, they couldn’t seem to forget each other. Which begged the question: Had the lustful litigators contracted the disease after all? Or had they been acting under the influence of another fever altogether – the love bug?

My Verdict: This is the first novel by Trish Jensen that I read and I find it very engaging. It's the usual battle of the sexes book but a lot funnier as their verbal exchanges are wittily written and there's palpable chemistry between the two main characters.

Also, aside from the lovable hero and heroine, there are endearing characters like Nick Hart, Paige's brother who has issues to settle with the lovely Rachel, Nick and Paige's doctor. There's the entire amusing Hart clan too whose members include a geeky cousin, a kleptomaniac aunt, a military dad and a very chatty sister who has a very reserved twin.

All in all, this book is one enjoyable read. I enjoyed the author's writing style so much that now I'm looking for more Trish Jensen (who I found out to be a recipient of Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award) novels.
