OMG, this book was amazing. I started reading this once I was reminded by a friend's post on Instagram that she was also reading the ARC. I went crazy reading this. I unfortunately had to read it on Adobe Editions, so I was slowed down by not being used to the software and having to click every time I wanted a page turn rather than hitting the arrows or better yet scrolling on my phone.
Anyway, what was I saying? Oh, right. Amazing. The plot was fast, questions from Book 1 were answered (and like a hydra, for each answer, 3 more questions sprouted in its place). Caitlin didn't whine as much, she (and readers) get to learn more about vampires, and most awesomely: meet new vampires! And she grows closer to Julian, which I thought was nice because despite his prickly attitude in Velvet, I wanted them to become friends.
I loved this book even more than Everywhere and Every Way. I think it's because the emotions here were so much more raw—moved me to tears for the last section of the book. Anyway, like the last book, the characters here were great.
Dalton is the playboy of the Pierce brothers, but he's also a hard worker that never seems to get the credit he deserves from his two older brothers, his future sister-in-law, their assistant Sydney, or even their architect Brady. His mother running away with another man hit him the hardest, and still haunts him with nightmares. At least he has his work—and the owner of My Place, if she'll give him the time of day—to keep him busy.
Raven is the daughter of the man who was running away with Diane Pierce. She knows who the Pierce brothers are and is determined to hate them. But it's a lot harder to do that when one of them is devastatingly hot, is offering to help you fix your establishment, and attracts you like crazy. She tries to stay focused on not falling for him, but life has other plans.
I found this book through Goodreads telling me that the next book in this series was available. I got both immediately, given how much I loved her Marriage to a Billionaire series.
I can't quite put my finger on why I liked this story, but I will try.
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).
This is by far my favorite book in the series (so far—given there will be The Pleasures of Passion coming out in 2017). Delia is probably the most unique historical romance heroine that I've read to this date. I mean, there aren't that many female characters dressing as men anymore (in fiction, obviously historically it's been over for a while since women have gained more autonomy—thank god). Her determination was admirable, if not foolhardy at times (I definitely understood Warren's frustration with her regarding that). Her dedication to her family was amazing, and her stubborness was definitely relatable.
I'm a self-published author (because being a college student wasn't hard enough!) and spend most of my time doing homework. I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
