He’s not who she expected, but he’s exactly the man she needs…
When Chelsea Wayne drags Santa into a supply closet for a little office party nookie, she assumes the man in the suit is her on-again/off-again coworker boyfriend. Instead, it’s Rafe St. Sebastian, a man known for his hard-driving ways in business as well as the bedroom—and, kill her now, the brand spanking new owner of Las Ventanas—who grants her naughtiest Christmas wishes.
So much for her reputation, not to mention her career.
Rafe needs to close three acquisitions to prove to his father he’s ready to take the helm of St. Sebastian Enterprises. A hot interlude in a supply closet after deal number two seems like the perfect illicit Christmas bonus. Unfortunately, when that “bonus” becomes the key to the final deal, he finds himself back in bed—so to speak—with Chelsea, and after their steamy tryst, he’s not interested in keeping things professional…
When Chelsea sees her boyfriend and boss, Paul, dressed in the Santa costume she wanted him to wear at their hotel’s Christmas party, she pushes him into a closet and has the best sex of her life. But soon after she realises that Santa wasn’t Paul, but was in fact Rafe St. Sebastian, the hotel’s new owner and her new boss. Awkward. Before she gets a chance to confess to Paul what she unknowingly did, he drops his own bombshell, causing her to quit on the spot and move away to get a fresh start. Rafe’s dream is to take over the St. Sebastian empire from his father; a dream that will only come true after he completes three successful hotel acquisitions. His dream is almost derailed when he learns that Chelsea, the woman he slept with and who was instrumental in the running of his second acquisition, has quit. He tracks her down at her new hotel and figures he can kill two birds with one stone⎯complete the third and final acquisition and get Chelsea in his bed and out of his head. For him, it’s a win-win situation.
Apart from fucking Santa in a closet, I thought Chelsea was a smart and level-headed woman as well as a loyal friend. When Paul was cruel to her during their breakup, she didn’t take what he said to heart. Rather she saw his words for what they were – a deflection of guilt and blame from a man who didn’t deserve her. Rafe was hot, cheeky, flirty and confident, but I also thought he was a little callous with Chelsea’s feelings. He didn’t want to hurt her and he was very upfront about what he was after, but he didn’t seem to care about her professional hesitations or that she’d just been shafted by her boyfriend.
I’ve seen some reviews that complain about the first sex scene between Chelsea and Rafe in the supply closet. She assumes it’s Paul, but Rafe isn’t aware of that. He just gets jumped by a hot woman and goes along with it. Smart? No. It’s not until they’re finished and she calls him “Paul” that he realises what has just happened. While it could be considered a gray area, it’s certainly not rape and that scene didn’t bother me at all. I really enjoyed reading COMPROMISING HER POSITION. I thought it was funny, that Chelsea and Rafe had amazing chemistry and that everyone got exactly what they deserved. And the sex scenes? Hot! Hot! HOT!!!!! Seriously, the scenes between Chelsea and Rafe were some of the hottest I’ve read in a long while. A change of panties may be required prior to reading this book. You’ve been warned.
Chelsea: Holy career suicide. I accidentally had sex with one of the most powerful players in the industry.
