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.
“I’m hopelessly in love with you. Can’t you see it?”
Politics, Law, Compromises, Love, Passion, — Compromising Positions, the new Adult Romance by Mary Whitney, is a great novel that leaves the reader wanting more. This is no surprise to me, since I’m a big fan of Mary Whitney. She’s the Author of Beside Your Heart and Disclosure of the Heart, books that I truly loved.
She proves her writing talent also in Compromising Positions, which I give my thumbs up, and I encourage you to add it to your TBR list.
This is the story of two people, who fall in love against all odds. They shouldn’t be together for several reasons, first of all for their jobs and ideas. Michael Grath is a Republican, while Jessie Clark is a Democrat. That’s one big conflict right there. But despite their differences, which might seem huge at the beginning, they fall in love with each other, proving that these differences can indeed unite and create strong bonds.
Something we wouldn’t expect, right?
Indeed, Michael and Jessie’s story is a surprise. We follow Michael and Jessie from the very first time they lay eyes on each other. We see them feeling a strong attraction, being guarded around each other, becoming friends and falling in love, but it’s not all so easy…Will they stick together?
This is the first romance novel I read that talks also about politics, and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. I like how it deals with themes that are very current and that have become subject of debates in every day life. I also love how the characters discuss about these topics with each other, and their banter is amazing. There’s plenty of humor, and there’s also some great sexy and witty dialogue between Michael and Jessie that’s very enjoyable to read.
Both Michael and Jessie discover that, together, they can be free and different from what the world wants them to be. And they show that, as long as there’s respect and compromise, we can find union and accord through our very differences.
There’s also some steam in the novel, that will leave you satisfied. Michael and Jessie can’t take their eyes (and hands) off each other, once they connect on a deep emotional and physical level…
If you enjoyed the previous books by Mary Whitney, Compromising Positions won’t disappoint. If you are new to this Author, make sure to check out this great Adult Romance. You’ll become a fan.
I give Compromising Positions 4 bright stars.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Mary Whitney blames Laura Ingalls Wilder and Margaret Mitchell for her obsession with romance novels. At an early age, Mary fell in love with the Little House series and its dreamy hero, Almanzo Wilder, who only wanted Laura to be Laura. Like many women, Mary later graduated to the ultimate, tall and dark bad boy, Rhett Butler, who loved Scarlett despite her flaws.
Mary has lived around the U.S., and after a first career in the non-profit world and politics, she’s settled in Northern California with her husband and daughters. She spends her days writing characters she hopes somehow capture the romance of Rhett and Scarlett and Almanzo and Laura. She’s a firm believer in what Rhett says to Scarlett: “You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how
