A romantic comedy with bickering lawyers.
on September 18, 2012
Two lawyers are representing opposing sides in a divorce case. The thing that has the bickering couple to a stand still are two things, custody of the dog and later on some conditions on the house. Page isn't even a divorce lawyer as her specialty is tax law, but Jasmine is her cousin so she's taken on the case for her. Ross is a divorce lawyer who has some conditions on the cases which he takes, he refuses to represent anyone who is a cheater or has been cheated on. I think this would make it harder to find clients, but it does make him a little charming. They are in fact arguing over the case outside the courthouse when an explosion rocks the place. They then later end up waking up in the hospital room which is curiously on a very dark hall for a hospital, not to mention that they are sharing a room and neither has injuries that should have necessarily caused for hospitalization.
When finally a doctor shows up in the hospital room, it turns out the ambulance that picked them up may have contanimated them with TVS, some exotic disease that among other things can make you horny. There is no way to know whether they contracted the virus so in the meantime they are to be quarantined together for the next two weeks. They set up a few ground rules and try to get along all the while fight the attraction that's blossoming between them. It's not that many days into the quarantine that they give in to their attraction to each other with lots and lots of foreplay. But when the quarantine comes to an end was it really genuine or were the doctors wrong when they say they never contracted the virus after all.
There is also a bit of a side story of Nick who years ago slept with Rachel once and didn't contact her the next day. And then shortly after she didn't return to school. I'm glad the back story was revealed because it both made him look less bad and also the reason she didn't return to school ended up having nothing to do with him. Do he and Rachel get a second chance and do Ross and Page see each other after the quarantine or do they brush it off as nothing, either they really had the virus or an attraction as a result of being alone together for so long in such close quarters. This was a really cute romance and I'll consider the author again in the future.
