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 non-medical 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?
This trend toward funny, sexy contemporary oriented romance is something like I kind of enjoy of reading it. It is quite unbelievable regarding to the virus issue, but overall, it could be very cute to read two hard-headed lawyers fall for each other in a funny situation. I never heard of the virus and I don't mind of how crappy that is.
The main characters are sweet, witty, both sides are very arrogant and act like cat and dog. Until they have to spend their quarantine together for a while until the experts figure out the cure. Although they part of the story is quite enjoyable to read, the secondary characters, Paige's brother and their doctor for the case are actually known each other like forever until they broke up for some misunderstanding. How their love reincarnated together is somewhat more sweet and pretty endearing to me. I still love the main characters but as much as I like the secondary characters too.
The story is fun, sometime hilarious and I lough or smile a lot whenever I read the dialogues and they quite incredible as hate each-other-lover. I'm enjoying reading the book and it's a quite a page turner. Only that, I don't find any ups and downs or climax of the story, it's just linear but a fun read. You probably want to read it leisurely in one or two sittings and might want to re-read it again sometime soon after that.
