Compromising Positions by Mary Whitney Blog Tour #Review #Giveaway

Title: Compromising Positions
Author: Mary Whitney
Genre: Women’s Fiction
Publication Date: January 23, 2014
Event Organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.

We weren’t supposed to be friends. We weren’t even supposed to like each other. I’m Michael Grath. I’ll admit I was elected to Congress on my Republican family history. I was out to make a name for myself, until I met Jessie Clark, a spitfire Democrat. She’d be my nemesis, if I could just stop thinking about her. We’ve got nothing and everything in common, and one big issue that divides us. All of this is going to land us in more than one compromising position. And like I said, we weren’t supposed to be friends, we weren’t even supposed to like each other, and we certainly weren’t supposed to fall in love.

A delightfully written political romance!

I have heard so much about Mary Whitney's stories, and after reading Compromising Positions I now know why she has many loyal fans! I LOVED Michael and Jessie's story. I found the writing so pleasant and brilliant that I couldn't turn the pages fast enough!

This is way more than a story of Republican vs. Democrat. Michael and Jessie are well-developed, likable characters. They are both in their mid-thirties, passionate, engage in friendly banter, have realistic flaws, and most importantly, understand and respect each other with high regard. So what's the problem? Well, these two have so much standing in their way. Each holds a position in Washington D.C. where anything can be publicly scrutinized. Every decision they make has to be a calculated move. One of my favorite scenes happens when they meet right at the beginning. They are very much intrigued by the other, which sets the tone for the rest of the story.

I found Compromising Positions to be a delightfully written political romance. I loved how Mary Whitney presented the heated issues in an interesting manner. Really, there is no right or wrong. Enjoy this story for what it is! Michael and Jessie find themselves in a blossoming romance, which puts them in one helluva compromising position!

About the Author

Even before she graduated from law school, Mary Whitney knew she wasn’t cut out to be a real lawyer. Drawn to politics, she’s spent her career as an organizer, lobbyist, and nonprofit executive. Nothing piques her interest more than a good political scandal or romance, and when she stumbled upon writing, she put the two together. A born Midwesterner, naturalized Texan, and transient resident of Washington, D.C., Mary now lives in Northern California with her two daughters and real lawyer husband.

    1. I haven't read them yet, but I've also heard wonderful things about her Beside Your Heart series. I have those on my TBR, and can't wait to read them now. Thanks for commenting, Christy.
