Review: Compromising Positions - Jenna Bayley-Burke

Compromising Positions
Compromising Positions - Jenna Bayley-Burke
Kindle Edition
Published 2009

Goodreads Review:

David Strong knows how to do a lot of things—run an international fitness company, finesse stock portfolios and stay out of emotional entanglements. That is, until he gets tangled up with Sophie Delfino and her Sensational Sex workout. He’s supposed to help her demonstrate Kama Sutra positions for her couples’ yoga class. The rigorous postures require more than just physical control. And his co-instructor unexpectedly tests his control to the limit.

Sophie’s been fantasizing about David since her teens, but she never dreamed she’d actually be expected to run through her intimate desires—with an audience! The class is very professional, tame even—or it would be, if she’d been in any of the positions before. But she hasn’t—except in her wildest fantasies about David. Sophie knows she wants David in every way, and she’s flexible enough to use whatever she has to get him.

David can’t afford any unexpected distractions. Besides the sensual positions he has to endure without embarrassing himself in public, there’s an embezzler stealing from his company. And then there’s Sophie—who is well on her way to stealing his well-guarded heart.

My Review:

This was a freebie on the Kindle, and I figured I would give it a chance.  Honestly, I hadn't read the summary on Goodreads, nor on Amazon....and I probably should have!  As you can tell from the Goodreads summary, this is the story of David Strong and Sophie Delfino falling in love and working out their differences.  What I didn't know/expect was all the explicit sex scenes.  I've not read any erotica before...and I don't see why not!  I might have gotten a little uncomfortable at parts, but honestly, it was a good/cute plot and I enjoyed the storyline.  

I will definitely be looking to see if there are any other books by Jenna Bayley-Burke that I might like to add to my TBR pile.

I would not recommend this book for the squirmish!  If you like a good, cute, romantic tale -- check it out!

4 stars

Have you read any erotic novels?  If so, what did you think?  Are there any that you would suggest I try?

Happy Reading!

Hello Brandiheather, many thanks for joining me over at Pen and Paper, I'm glad that you find my blog intriguing and hope you'll stop by again. Nice to have met you, I've enjoyed my visit and to answer your question re erotic novels. Not a fan of this genre, I read one or two books that could be classed as this a long time ago. A bit squirmish (I love this word) I think I'll give this novel a miss but, hey, never say never.

Hey, I'm a guy, so my preference is erotica. Henry Miller, DH Lawrence, James Joyce -- all those dead white guys who were censored. I liked erotica so much, I read a book, contacted the author, got in an argument with her over porn, married her after much tribulation, enjoy her daily writing routine and have watched her publish a book with the funniest porn shoot I've ever read (Search TDTM on Amazon). I'd recommend that book to read, if you don't laugh out loud twice, send me an email and I'll send you your money back -- how's that for a guarantee. The things we do for love . . .
