Compromising Positions

by Jenna Bayley-Burke Publication Date: November 28, 2016 Genres: Adult, Entangled: Select, Contemporary Romance




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.




“You are such a bad influence on me,” Sophie said, taking a cannoli. “I like it.”

“About that,” David cleared his throat as he shrugged off his coat. “We need to talk about the other night.”

Sophie’s stomach flipped, not a good thing with so much fried dough inside. She set down her half-eaten cannoli. “About me kissing you, or you running away?” She might be terrified, but he didn’t have to know that. He smiled as he shook his head, then looked her straight in the eye and whispered, “Craig told me you’re a virgin.”

Her eyes widened. She’d been scared before, but now she was mortified. Daphne would have her head for kissing David. “You told Craig that I kissed you?”

“God, no,” he said, leaning closer.

“You’re not denying it.”

“I won’t deny it. Lying is too much work. I may omit from time to time, but I never lie.” She folded her arms over her chest and stared back at him.

“I don’t know what you thought was happening, Sophie, but you can’t play those kinds of games with men. If it weren’t for my friendship with Craig, I wouldn’t have stopped.”

“Really.” She grinned and slid her hand across the small table until it reached his. He pulled away like she’d burned him.

“That look. Don’t do that.”

“What do you mean?” she asked innocently.

“You know what. The big eyes and that smile.” He shook his head. “You don’t understand. I would have hurt you.”

“How?” He obviously had no idea how good she’d been feeling.

“What I had in mind wasn’t nice, or gentle.” His eyes darkened as he peered down at her.

She stretched her leg under the table until it found his. “I knew exactly what you had in mind.” She could tell he was trying to keep away from her, but his legs were too long, and she quickly trapped one of his between her own. His gaze met hers, and she held it. She may not know how to get it, but she knew what she wanted.



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.
