I am delighted to be kicking off Anna Premoli’s blog tour today for ‘Stuck With You’! Having nosed at the reviews before reading it myself, I have to say that I was genuinely surprised by what I read! Thanks to Aria Fiction for the ARC. Here is my review:
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
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?

What does TWG think?
I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised with ‘Stuck With You’ by Anna Premoli! Some of the reviews I had read before I began reading the book myself weren’t the greatest. However, I ensured I kept my mind open whilst forming my own opinion on the book.
Set in Italy with students, ‘Stuck With You’ follows the story of an Italian economics student who has to step over into the dark side and pair up with a computer engineering student on a new project. It sounds pretty simple really doesn’t it? Unfortunately for Lavinia, the first day of her pairing didn’t exactly go to plan. Let’s just say that the guy she was paired up with refused to use his manners, meaning that Lavinia saw read. Not the greatest way to kick things off is it?
Now, seeing as Lavinia is the type of person who prefers to be liked, she wasn’t going to stand for Seb’s ignorance and rudeness – even if it did bug her to the point of getting in his face!
The romance part of the storyline, I have to say, was pretty predictable. It was lovely to see two people come together in a very unlikely way, don’t get me wrong, but I could see it a mile off. It probably doesn’t help that I’m not the most romantic person on the planet, but y’know.
Aside from that, the storyline kept me entertained whilst also being a well needed break from other heavier novels I have read previously. ‘Stuck With You’ wasn’t too overpowering which meant that I found it quite an easy read….and no not in a bad way. Okay, no, it didn’t blow me away, but I didn’t dislike it either. It was pleasant, nicely written and a refreshing change.
