Book Review: Stuck Wtih You
This book is about two lawyers (Ross and Paige) that were hurt when there was a blast. They were taken to the hospital in an ambulance and on their way they could have possibly been exposed to the "love bug" virus so they had to be quarantined. They had to be in one room together Paige did not like Ross because he was a divorce lawyer. But because of this "love bug virus" they are becoming attracted to each other and they think it is due to the virus but come to find out they never were infected and they find out that they were just really attracted to each other.
This book is absolutely hilarious. It made me laugh and I absolutely love this book. If you want to read an awesome book that is funny this is the book for you.

Two feuding divorce lawyers.
One infectious "love bug" virus.
The symptoms are hard to resist . . .
Paige Hart is blessed and cursed with a large, loving and. . .colorful Southern family. As the only lawyer in the clan, she can't say no when her cousin needs her help in a messy, no-holds-barred divorce. Tax attorney Paige squares off with Ross "the Snake" Bennett-one of the slickest divorce lawyers in the county. The case is going as well as an acrimonious, zinger-filled, wrangle of epic proportions can go until exposure to an infectious bug with an unusual side effect lands both lawyers in quarantine together.
The doctor was blunt. "There's a slight chance that the two of you came into contact with infectious materials when you were transported in that ambulance."
"A virus?" Paige squealed.
"What virus?" Ross demanded.
"The CDC believes it's a new strain of Tibetan Concupiscence Virus. Or TCV. The symptoms appear to be-somewhat unusual. Elevated heart rate, a warmth radiating under the skin, and heightened sexual awareness."
"Oh . . . my . . . God," Paige said faintly.
Ross crossed his arms. "I've never actually considered heightened sexual awareness a problem."
"That's it!" Paige said, pointing at Ross accusingly.
"That's what?" he and the doctor asked at the same time.
"The reason I was-was-never mind," Paige said, feeling her cheeks heat up. Like she'd ever admit she'd been making silent, non-lawyerly observations about the snake. Hospital gowns weren't supposed to look that good. Or deliciously skimpy.

Trish Jensen never meant to become an author. Never aspired to it, in fact it wasn't even in the top ten of jobs on her, "If you could do/be anything, what would it be?" list.
But after seven years in corporate America, she recognized climbing that particular ladder wasn't what she wanted, either. So while she figured out what truly felt right, she decided to go back to school for her MBA. After one semester of THAT, she recognized it would still be the same ladder, just made of better wood, a better view from her office, and yet still a desk job.
So she made a leap to another, really rickety ladder, taking English and creative writing classes just to clear her head and make her brain work in a completely new way. When she tackled the final for her creative writing class, the first chapter of a novel, a crazed writer was born.
She loves this ladder, although she realized rather quickly that it never really becomes less rickety, and along the way there are many rungs that crack or break, making climbing a wonderfully scary, uncertain but never boring proposition.
Yet sitting here in her office -- admittedly with a beautiful view of mountains and wildlife rather than high-rises -- a horrible thought occurs to her. It's a desk job.
