BOOK REVIEW: Stuck With You by Trish Jensen

Author: Trish Jensen
Publisher: Bell Bridge Books
Caterory: Adult Fiction

The Shrew and The Shark.

Lawyer Paige Hart hates no one more than Ross Bennett, the divorce lawyer against whom she is battling in court. Unfortunately a bombing sends them both to the hospital where they are forced to share a room as they are believed to have caught the new virus called Tibetan Concupiscence Virus, more commonly known as the Horny Monk disease.  In quarantine both find their attraction for each other growing.  The question is, is it the virus or is it true love?

Paige is the ideal lawyer who fights tooth and nail for her client, especially if her client is a relative…. which it always is.  A tiger in court, she is otherwise naïve out of it.  Having been burned in college by a former boyfriend (who turned out to be a Married boyfriend), she has never been with anyone seriously since, believing that men in general can not be trusted, especially Divorce lawyers like Ross.  

But forced together in quarantine, she couldn’t be more surprised to find that Ross is the complete opposite of the pompous jerk she always thought him to be.  Instead she finds him irresistible in his gentleness, thoughtfulness, kindness and philanthropy.  she blames the horny monk disease for her slow change of heart and eventually gives in to her very strong physical attraction to Ross.  

These two characters sizzle in their hate, lust and love for each other.   Added bonus is the sarcasm full of humor and bite.  From the very first page you know they would end up in bed, many times over at that.  
Apart from these two there’s also the supporting characters that gave the book its extra ooommph, specifically Paige’s brother Nick and their (Ross’ and Paige’s) doctor Rachel.  Theirs is about  unrequited love, missed opportunity, delayed closure and hopeful continuation. A thrilling extra story within the main story. 
Overall a fun book I would recommend to adult readers.
