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.

Compromising Positions is the first book I’ve read by Jenna Bayley-Shay, but it won’t be the last. I really enjoyed reading Compromising Positions. It was an adorable romance filled with so many fun moments.
I liked both of the main characters, but Sophie stood out to me. Carrying her family’s problems on her shoulders gave her a maturity beyond her years. The way she used putting her family first in the past as a way to encourage herself to go for what she wanted in the present was really cool. In her most immature relationship moments I had to remind myself that she was about ten years younger than David because she seemed so much older.
Sophie wasn’t the only one with a tough history. David’s family life was far from perfect. While Sophie took her past and used it as a positive influence, David’s past had a negative influence on him. It affected how he saw his future. I loved how he changed and what he learned about himself through his relationship with Sophie.
David and Sophie’s relationship was very sweet. It was a little forbidden and a lot hot. Their relationship started in a really fun way with partnering up to teach a Sensational Sex workout. I loved how their attraction to each other progressed from there and changed throughout the book.
I only had a couple of minor dislikes while reading Compromising Positions. First, it was told in third person dual points of view. The third person narration was good, but I would have preferred to read Sophie and David’s thoughts in first person. It would have made me feel even more connected to them. Second, there was a twist that came out of nowhere that I couldn’t decide if I liked. It just didn’t feel real or necessary to me. Neither of these things were big enough to truly impact how I felt about this book, though. It was just so much fun to read.
Compromising Positions was a cute contemporary romance. It was filled with super sexy situations that made me blush. I would recommend it to readers looking for a light and sexy read to escape with.
