Blog Tour: Compromising Positions by Mary Whitney

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 flirting with 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. So 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.

4 star review by Allison East

I have to admit the premise of a sort of political romance, had me edgy. I knew it was going to be angsty, I knew what I was in for- and yet, still I couldn't help but read it.

I think the book ended up being a great read. The novel is clever, charming and very well-written. It has a plot that, to me, was fresh and new. The writing is vivid, detailed, and filled with emotions. All the feels!!!

The book is about Michael Grath and Jessie Clark as they fall in love when they weren't supposed to. The political world, where a Republican and a Democrat shouldn't be agreeing on issues, and especially not fall in love. What I liked about this book was that it had a fun side, and didn't seem so serious when it came to politics.  The romance between the two could have had it to blow up in the press, but didn't. Thanks to one of their friends who kept it hush hush.

Now of course, there is angst- issues that are not agreed on, and hopefully they can get over just their political side and love each other.

Overall, the novel is a great read that I would definitely recommend to other readers. And if you have never read anything by Mary Whitney, I suggest you do so!

Mary 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 in many parts of 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 by someone who knows how.”
