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.

Editorial Reviews

bn.com
As lawyers on opposing sides of a messy divorce case, Paige Hart and Ross Bennett ought to have kept matters purely professional, yet Paige and Ross came to loathe each other with an intensity that was strictly personal. The bad blood between them takes on an unexpected new dimension when the infuriated pair is forced to share a hospital room, when they're quarantined after being exposed to the rare and highly contagious Tibetan Concupiscence Virus that's reputed to shift sensual desire into high gear. When symptoms (which a nonmedical person might mistake for pure and simple lust) start showing up way ahead of schedule, the lawyers' objections to each other are overruled -- and they enjoy every minute of it. But, after the doctors declare that the disease has run its course, Paige and Ross are still feverish with a longing for one another that they hope will never be cured. When the verdict comes in, will they be sentenced to life -- in love? The trend toward funny, sexy contemporary romance has been around for a while, but Trish Jensen offers readers a fresh (in both senses of the word) take on this popular genre.

I expected this to be a fun and quick read. And I just adore the simplicity of the cover...the two heart shaped cherries with their stems making another heart...so cute! Sadly I was just not able to connect with the story. It was just a bit too cheesy for my taste-a bit too unbelievable. I couldn't find much substance here. For an adult book it just seemed a bit juvenile for my taste. The characters did not act the way I would expect intelligent adults (as lawyers -they were supposed to be quite bright) even considering the fact that they were "infected" with this ridiculous disease. And the way the legal jargon was tossed into the dialogue. I know that the author was going for crazy and humorous here...but it just fell way short for me...too unrealistic.

REVIEWED BY: Kimberly REVIEW: As with all of Trish Jensen's books this book is hard to put down. It is not long into this book when you fall for these characters. Ross has a sense of humor no woman could deny was her undoing and Paige is just adorable and while brilliant in life not so much in love (the sports analogies are so cute). These characters jump off the page and make you smile and laugh. (And the Scrabble scene is not to be missed!) * The secondary story of Rachel and Nick should have been a book all on its own.* Pick up this book if you didn't in 2001 and enjoy it! Paige and Ross are both lawyers. And while he is a divorce lawyer Paige is usually in tax law, that is until a family member asks Paige to help with her divorce (or any other law a family member needs handled). So now Paige and Ross are on opposites sides of the table. At least until the explosion at the court house. Then they are stuck with each other in a quarantined room at the hospital with a possible virus that causes an over-stimulated sex drive. How can you be in a room with a person you find attractive when your sex drive has been spiked? Turn the page and find out.

Paige Hart is a tax attorney who hates divorce lawyers. She's smart, witty, and a bombshell. She handles all of the legal work of the large Hart Clan across all fields of law. Paige is asked by a cousin to help her with her divorce, bring her into contact with the handsome Ross Bennett, the divorce lawyer for her soon to be cousins-ex-husband. The two continually exchange verbal barbs and are trying to one up each other. They can't stand to be in each other's company. And then the unthinkable happens. The two are quarantined together for two weeks! Will their animosity continue, or will it turn into something else? This book is really enjoyable. Ms.Jensen does a great job at describing medical protocol regarding quarantine. I loved the romantic tension between not only Paige and Ross, but Nick, Paige's older brother, and Dr.Rachel Turner, the doctor in charge. The book was well written and funny, especially all the sports euphemisms. It's not very long, but is able to pack in quite a bit of heat, without being vulgar. Trish Jensen has written ten books, and contributed to two anthologies. She didn't initially start off with the dreams of being a writer, but after deciding the corporate world was not for her, took to writing. She lives on a mountain in the Amish country of Pennsylvania and is an animal lover.

It depends on your age... but I would recommend If I Stay. I got it as an audio book and loved every second of it. It also did something no other book has done: it almost made me cry. Almost. I give it 5 stars!

I enjoyed the interesting plot and subplot of this book. If you are looking for an "innocent" romance novel, this is not it but I was not offended by the sexual situations. I thought initially I would rate it with 3 stars but it got better the more you read.

Love the cover and the last 20 pages, but that's about all. Not funny. The whole book kept repeating what the two main characters wanted to do to each other sexually. Did like the secondary story. Not worth 1.99!

This is a good romance story. It discribes the sexual tension and desires of the characters without unnecessary language. I did not want to put it down.
