I really enjoyed this book. It was short, sweet, and full of sexual tension (which is to be expected when the title is Compromising Positions and about two yoga people teaching a Kama Sutra class).
I found both characters to be interesting on their own, made only better when paired with the other. Their individual hang ups made sense, weren't stupid, and (mostly) weren't perpetuated by the characters refusing to speak to each other.
The side characters were great at revealing other sides of the main characters, and the plot was fun. I kind of hated Craig, Sophie's brother-in-law and David's best friend, for always harping on Sophie's weight (that David gets fed up with this was a positive in my mind).
For everything I loved in the story, though, there were a few things I didn't like. Or, more like 1 thing that popped up a few times: issues between characters that then went unaddressed. The first time was when Sophie heard that her sister referred to their yoga club as hers, even though Sophie owned 70% of it (this does kind of come back later, but given how vocal Sophie is, I'm disappointed she didn't bring this up with her sister sooner and in a more direct way). The second, major time, is when David thinks that Sophie might have been playing him this whole time. He makes a decision to protect himself, but never asks Sophie. Granted, he's not as vocal as her about stuff like this, but with something so major, I'd assume he would have wanted to hear her tell her side—but he didn't, and his doubt is never mentioned again.
But, for a story that had everything going for it, one flaw isn't so bad. That's why I'm still giving this book 5 stars.

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.
