Book Description

Mercedes Fortunato is thrilled to finally land her dream job, working as a publicist for a U.S. Senator. Until she learns that the creeper Senator only wants her as another notch on his headboard. And that her immediate boss, the press secretary, resents the hell out of her for that very reason. Mercedes soon learns she should've been careful about what she wished for, as she finds herself encouraging the advances of one boss while desperately trying to thwart the moves of the other. And when she learns that the Senator's out-of-control bad behavior extends far beyond his bedroom antics, she realizes she's in over her head and better watch her back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced romance at its best 9 April 2012
By zoe
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish 3 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother! 15 Nov. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Too steamy of a romance for me 9 April 2012
By Sue Reviews - Published on
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Talk dirty to me!! (On second thought, please don't!) 17 Nov. 2012
By ebc_from_ct - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute & Funny 13 April 2012
By Sheiglagh - Published on
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.
1.0 out of 5 stars not what I expected 23 Oct. 2012

Format:Kindle Edition
I was hoping this would become one of my favorite books. I am sadly mistaken. I finished the first chapter and couldn't finish the rest. I didn't care for the writing style. This was my first book from this author and I'm not sure I want to purchase anymore.
