Review: Compromising Positions (Invested In Love) by Jenna Bayley-Burke

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.

After spending over a decade fantasizing about the man, she finally has a chance to ogle and touch him. Even if it is for professional reasons. Sophie knows the type of man he is when it comes to commitment but she can’t help but push his buttons and break his rules. It is what they are there for right? David tries to do right by her and keep his distance but she is relentless! Plus after letting her in, she made herself completely comfortable and life would not be the same for David if she ever decided to leave.

I am torn done the middle with this book. Upon reading the first few chapters I was not all that sold and struggled to get through it. Then about the a quarter into it when Sophie finally wore David down enough to get past all his hang ups it was an enjoyable read! There were a few grammatical errors that stuck out and confused me but it was easy to get past.

I love me a egocentric man and the woman who knocks him down a few pegs and Compromising Positions does not disappoint in this area! He never wanted to love or have the complications of a relationship thanks to his father’s failed marriages. But there is something about Sophie that he cannot give up. They have a lot in common but what they want for the future. Which does not become a problem until the very end when David makes a serious decision without Sophie.

This is everything a contemporary romance should be. Sweet, drama, heat, betrayal, humor, and much more. I wanted to give it a higher rating but I could not get over how easily Sophie forgave. It is a great trait but after she was completely manipulated she was totally okay with it. Even after she vows to not let someone make decisions for her, she lets David easily do it. Then the epilogue. I love a sappy ending as any romance junkie that was pushing the limit. I can’t say why without giving it away but you will understand after you read it.

I was gifted a copy of this novel from the JeepDiva in exchange for an honest review.
