Peek Inside Compromising Positions

When David Strong agrees to help teach a yoga class 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. 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.

He never broke a rule…until he met her.

When CEO David Strong is strong-armed into demonstrating Kama Sutra yoga poses for a couples class—which is as awkward as it sounds—he’s put in one compromising position after another. On top of that, the co-instructor gets him all worked up, and she’s totally off-limits. At least she should be.

Sophie DelFino has fantasized about David for over a decade. If only he weren’t so uptight and didn’t have so many rules. Of course, all those rules sure make it fun to push his buttons. And if she can get him bent out of shape enough; maybe he’ll give in to the temptation of whatever’s sparking between them.


"Sensual, seductive, and emotional; years later Compromising Positions remains one of the best romances I've ever read." ~Slick, Guilty Pleasures 

 "I absolutely loved [Compromising Positions]. I sat reading this book with the biggest grin on my face and it lasted the whole way through, which is rare in a book. If you like a romantic comedy with a touch of steam then this book is for you." ~missd24, Amazon
"Once you start reading [Compromising Positions], you will not want to put it down! Jenna Bayley-Burke does a great job with this one!" ~Melanie, Goodreads 
"Compromising Positions was smart, sexy and hilarious! I can't wait to see what else Jenna Bayley-Burke comes up with!" ~Sarah F., NetGalley 
"This is everything a contemporary romance should be. Sweet, drama, heat, betrayal, humor, and much more." Tiffrz, The Jeep Diva 
 "Ooohlala my yoga class has never been so sexy! Great to see innocent Sophie having the confidence to make David question his belief and have running around in circles to be a better person for himself. Great story, I can't recommend it enough." ~Denise E., NetGalley

Slick's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

When I first read Jenna Bayley-Burke's Compromising Positions it was long before I started reviewing for Guilty Pleasures and I remember finishing the book and immediately began re-reading it. I've probably read this book 20 times since it was fi ...more

The long and short of it.

This book plays off a substantial height difference between the two main characters, David and Sophie, in delicious detail through their Kama Sutra poses for a couples yoga class. Taking on the teaching duties for a friend and expectant sister, respectively, these two mismat ...more

** 4 Stars **

Right off the bat I enjoyed Compromising Positions. I didn't want to put it down, unfortunately life got in the way of me finishing this book sooner. I loved the writing style and the interaction, tension, and how Jenna Bayley-Burke built their relationship.

I was worried when I got to ...more

For the first 10% of this book I was thinking I might have made a mistake. I just really struggled to get into it but then I am thinking that might have been more to do with the kids extra high levels of insanity this week.

Once I got over that slump I was so strongly invested in Sophie. She was suc ...more

First of all, it kills me that I've had this book on my Kindle for two years, and that I didn't even know I had it. That's the danger of being a bookaholic. You just have no clue what kind of books you own.

I love this book. I fell completely in love with the characters much as I did with the previou ...more

I can't even begin to say how surprisingly awesome this book was! I got it for free on Amazon last week for Kindle, and anyone who has ever gotten a free kindle read from Amazon, knows they are typically hit or miss. Well, this one hit, and hit and hit! It was one of the best Contemporary Romances I ...more

By ♡Karlyn P♡ February 10, 2012

I love a spicy romance read with a good storyline and likable characters, but really good ones can be hard to find. This one was really good. Dave and Sophie made a great couple, and I loved all the sexual tension build up between these two. For a shorter read, this was funny and hot. ...more

By Lyndi W. March 01, 2013

I'm slightly torn between giving it 3 or 4 stars. I feel I more than "liked it", but I dunno if I would go so far as to say I "really liked it". But what is the median between the two other than 3.5 stars. I hate giving half stars because it's not visible unless somebody reads the review and I dunno ...more



Compromising Positions, my first book by Jenna Bayley-Burke, is a fun, light-hearted, and sweet romance.

Part of what makes this book so endearing is the characters, particularly Sophie. Her spunk, her love of her food, and her appetite for life make her a character to ...more

Cute contemporary romance.- and HOT!

I rarely read contemporary romance. And sometimes I didn't finished them because almost all of them are sucks.
So I don't have any expectation ion this book. I pick it up because just for change after reading fantasies and sci-fis. I dont feel reading more insane b ...more

I liked this one

I've had this book sitting on my kindle for years and didn't realise the little gem it was. This book was about a woman who has lived her life worrying and looking after her family and not looking after herself.

The main characters are forced together when her pregnant sister asks her ...more

I take notes when I read a book. When something catches my eye I highlights and take notes and the first thing that caught my eye in Compromising Positions made me make a note saying “Say what, now!!?” and I remember clapping my hands together and getting comfortable in my chair. And I stayed in tha ...more

3.5 Stars, 3 Flames
After spending over a decade fantasizing about the man, she finally has a chance to ogle and touch the man. 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 wha ...more

No Compromise On Romance, Emotion, or Humor

Compromising Positions is a delight!

I found this story of unrequited love, or lust as it is initially portrayed, to be a compelling page-turner.

This tale is of opposites who attract when they don't seem to have anything in common, physically or emotionally, ...more

By April December 04, 2016

This is a sweet story about love and how we fall or who we do not fall in love with. David Strong has rules about the women he spends time with and omg, there are many rules. For David, he doesn’t do relationships nor love or attachments. 35 years David has been able to keep his life running smoothl ...more

By Isha December 02, 2016

Who lit the match that sparked the fire which led to Temptation? Compromising Positions makes it hard to decide. Ms. Burke's seductive game of foreplay is an amusing battle of boundaries, personalities and irresistible characters. Sophie is a pint sized dynamo with enough attitude to intimidate even ...more

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this book, but the blurb and the premise sounded kind of hilarious, so I went with it. This was such a fun and heartfelt read.

Right off the bat I will tell you that the writing did very little for me, and I think that’s why I didn’t enjoy ...more

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Jenna Bayley-Burke

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.
