I thoroughly enjoyed the book from the start, its fast paced and whitty . As well as giving a glimpse into the inner workings of a corrupt senator, it has lots of very good and interesting character's. The main story is of a sweet yet steamy relationship between two vulnerable people who don't realize they are both looking for love. Great story, very different and well worth a read.

Luckily I got this book for free as I would have been quite annoyed to pay for it! The sex scenes made me cringe, they seemed really impersonal and the constant use of the word 'babe' really got to me. I couldn't bring myself to like the characters and the typos confused me so I found myself re reading things to try and understand why the names were wrong.
Really disappointing read.

Not often I give up on a book or feel strongly enough to write a bad review, this book achieves both. Rubbish rubbish rubbish

HASH(0x8f0405f4) out of 5 stars Don't bother! 15 Nov. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm sorry but I couldn't buy that this supposedly strong female lead would tolerate her boss calling her "babe", have her put her hand on his thigh or that she would even accept a position knowing that a sexual harassment suit is probably right around the corner. This made it impossible for me to connect with the heroine.

I really tried to finish this book to justify the $3.00 spent but I really couldn't. If I can at least spare someone else, it will not have been all in vain...

HASH(0x909d59c0) out of 5 stars Too steamy of a romance for me 9 April 2012
By Sue Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is all about sex and was just not my thing. The main character has a lecherous boss that is always pawing her and everything else in a skirt. She supposedly falls in love with her boss (who also reports to the lecher). To me there relationship was all about the physical. After a while I started flipping through these pages trying to get back to the plot. There was barely a page in the book without profanity, sex, or harassment. This just wasn't my type of book and I didn't find it romantic at all.

HASH(0x8ee115d0) out of 5 stars Talk dirty to me!! (On second thought, please don't!) 17 Nov. 2012
By ebc_from_ct - Published on Amazon.com

I've now read a couple of books by Erin Delany/Jenny Gardener -- Slim to None and Accidentally on Purpose -- and thought that they were good fun chic lit (although Slim to None was so poorly formatted, it was quite difficult to read). Amazon Kindle people, when are you going to start addressing quality control issues with your kindle books?!?

But, back to the book at hand, Compromising Positions has the potential to be so much fun! Two likable characters with an instant attraction to each other (who get on with the romance early in the book, which is a fun twist) work in the office of an archetypal senator in Washington D.C. -- a perfect setting for all sorts of funny mishaps, observations of our political process, ditching it all for a saner life- the possibilites for a good story are endless! However, I'll never know what happens because I could only make it through 28% of the book. It is that awful. I'm pretty sure that an editor never got near this book, which is a shame. Mercedes and Mike, the couple that works for the sleazy senator, just can't settle on a style. These college educated professionals alternate between talking like wannabe street thugs ('gonna' is big with the author) and waxing poetic like a Shakespearean scholar. But what is most unsettling is the author's penchant for the nasty terms for all things sexual when describing the couple's lovemaking. The couple never use these terms themselves (in fact, you can imagine them taking a small break from their sexual olympics to yell at the author, "Hey, do you kiss your mom with that filthy mouth?")

I really have no problem with the erotica that you encounter in chic lit, but the sexual scenes in this book are too many and tiresome (at least in the 28% of the book that i read before giving up), more pornographic than erotic, and take away from the flow of the book. As I said before, the two books mentioned above were fun reads, but this book seems like it's written by another author altogether. Such a shame.

In the books favor- the formatting is decent and the spelling errors are few, however at one point Mercedes all of the sudden possessed a male mouth that was engaged in something I probably can't describe in a review. I couldn't stop laughing and just couldn't keep reading.

HASH(0x8ef81b70) out of 5 stars Cute & Funny 13 April 2012
By Sheiglagh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Giving a bird's eyeview of working inside the Washington beltway, "Compromising Positions" brings the readers to the inner sanctum of Washington D.C and the streets of New York. The book follows Mike Garrity and Mercedes Fortunato, two unexpected lovers who had their own baggage from the past to get over with before they get their HEA.

A cute and funny romance with suspense thrown in, "Compromising Positions" is well written and I cannot really fault the editing. But somehow, though technically it was perfect (no glaring typos, misspellings, etc) and the words flow with a beautiful rhythm, I found the storyline dragging at times.

Mike and Mercedes were engaging enough. In fact, the supporting characters were also fleshed out nicely. But, somehow, only thing I can feel is "nice". It could not elicit any other feelings which I was expecting given the nature of the subplot of suspense.

So, I took away one star to show my disappointment.
HASH(0x8f3ffa74) out of 5 stars No compromise ... I loved Compromising Positions 16 Aug. 2012
By AndreaJ - Published on Amazon.com

Here I am again feeling the need to shout from the rooftops my love of all things Jenny Gardiner. Compromising Positions was one of the "people that bought this also liked..." recommendations. And this person didn't like but LOVED this recommendation!

Compromising Positions did not let me down in all things important ... humor, romance, a little hint of intrigue and a smile at the end. You won't get spoilers from me but I will say of all Jenny Gardiner books, this gave me romance and at least one scene that has stayed with me for months. A visual reader, books become movies in my mind and this was a great one!

I was rooting for Mercedes all along and wanted her to have passion and excitement in her life even with her career aspirations. Having a dream of what you want out of your professional life and knowing you may have to take a minor detour to get where you want to be is never a good feeling.Mercedes seems to embrace the challenge. Having an adversary like Mr. Garrity isn't a bad situation to fall into either.

Take two witty, focused, intelligent and of course, attractive adults, add a little professional drive, a scumbag boss, an oddball family, and a potential political scandal and you have a great fun read.
