Compromising Positions

by Jenna Bayley-Burke
Publication Date: November 28, 2016
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Select, Contemporary Romance
My Rating: 4.5 stars



Synopsis: Falling in love is the last thing on his busy agenda but compromising positions can lead just about anywhere.When fitness empire CEO David Strong agrees to help teach a yoga class for couples based on poses in The Kama Sutra, he’s put in one compromising position after another. Especially since the instructor is his best friend’s little sister-in-law, doesn’t have a lot of experience with men, and is totally off-limits. She’s everything David’s never wanted. So he can’t understand why he suddenly needs her so much.

Sophie DelFino has fantasized about David for over a decade, but he has a type, and she’s far from it. He’s also got all sorts of rules and reasons why they shouldn’t be together. Good thing Sophie is all about bending the rules.



My Review: Love, love, LOVED this book – everything about it!  The characters are so relatable and I loved Sophie from the beginning.  I think I have a girl crush on her, actually; it’s always awesome to me when a female character knows what she wants and goes for it, even when others are telling her not too.  I dream of a day that I will be brave enough to go after I want like she does.  I was skeptical that I’d like David but he had such depth that he tried to keep to himself.  He had these rules that he had set up so that he would never follow in his father’s footsteps but they kept him from having meaningful relationships; such a sad life to live.  And how many of us can relate to building walls to protect our hearts? 

This was my first book by Jenna Bayley-Burke but the way she writes has made a fan out of me.  She wrote such a heart warming story with this book.  It was the perfect mix of love and struggle, with just enough lust & sex to please my inner smut lover (I mean c’mon – they’re working through the Kama Sutra!).  Both main characters had family drama that was heavily influencing their lives, but in different ways.  We see guarded hearts, we see huge leaps of faith, and how they end up working together is enough to make me wish they were real people.  The chemistry between them is so intense that I was surprised it took David so long to stop fighting Sophie’s advances. If you like your books to have a good balance of ups and downs, and you can handle a little sex, definitely should check his one out!



By day, Jenna is faster than a speeding toddler, stronger than a stubborn husband, able to leap tall Lego structures in a single bound…but by night, while the family sleeps she writes romance novels where no one ever has to scoop up after the dog, change diapers, clip coupons, drive carpool, do laundry, mop floors, get silly putty out of hair, vacuum, empty the vacuum bag (gross!), exercise, count calories, apply bandaids, clean up puke…wait where was this going? Oh, Jenna writes romance because it is glamorous. Just ask the dog.
