Title: Stuck With You
Author: Anna Premoli
Release Date: November 1, 2017
A smart, romantic comedy about how finding The One doesn’t always have to be love at first sight…
Lavinia Ferrari is in her fifth year at Bocconi University where she studies Economics when she is introduced to a new project that will guarantee her extra credits. She’s intrigued… but it means the class must team up with students from the Computer Engineering course. Lavinia has absolutely no interest in the project, and to top things off, she’s paired with Seb Marconi who is less than enthusiastic.
When the work begins, her friends seem to be making great progress with their partners, but Lavinia isn’t having the same luck… Seb is making it quite clear that he’s not interested in the project, or Lavinia, fuelling her frustration.
She has no choice – they’re stuck in this, and besides, she won’t receive her extra credits unless they work together. Lavinia must come up with a way to convince the guy who drives her crazy to put the work in… but how?
From the author of LOVE TO HATE YOU, YOU DRIVE ME CRAZY and UNTIL LOVE DO US PART.
This story is a simple and predictable love story. I really liked it.
I could tell right away that something would happen with Lavinia and Seb. Her aversion to him was too strong at the beginning, leaving her open to changing her mind about him.
What I didn’t like was how my feelings about Lav and Seb changed through the book. First, Seb was frustrating because he was so hard to get through to. But when Lav starts to pretty much harass him, I thought she looked pretty foolish. As they say, “you’ll catch more flies with honey than vinegar,” and I think Lav should have given him some space rather than nosing into Seb’s life.
I was also confused at the beginning because the story is set in Italy, but the characters use a lot of British language and jargon. The only indication that it is set in Milan was the name of the streets and schools. I think more Italian influences should have been added in the dialogue to reinforce the setting.
I recommend this cute romantic comedy if you want some light reading this winter.
