Getting “Wet & Wild” in the Shower


When thinking about this “wet and wild” blog hop and what I might have to say on the subject, my first thought was this scene I wrote in The Alpha’s Legacy where the three main characters have sex in the shower. (You can see that scene below.)

I have not experienced shower sex myself, but I imagine it would be even less roomy than depicted in my story. 🙂 But what good is fiction if I can’t fit an extra body in the tub?

So here’s a question for you…is it okay to fudge the details a little (like this) in the spirit of telling a good story? How much is too much?

I hope you enjoy the excerpt below, and make sure to check out the two giveaways below that. Then hop on over to another blog to continue the fun!

Excerpt from The Alpha’s Legacy

Fiona pulled her shirt over her head. “Now, a shower?” She toed off her shoes and pushed her pants down her legs. She stepped out of them and walked into the bathroom in her underwear, bra, and socks.

“She has too many clothes on,” Grady said.

“We’re going to have to do something about that.”

The two men headed for the bathroom. Both tried to go through the door at the same time and got stuck. Their jostling turned into friendly wrestling. Grady had almost gotten the better of Caleb—he was sure he had—when Fiona whistled to get their attention.

She stood in the doorway, buck naked. “Five more seconds and I’m closing the door and locking it.”

Still frozen in mid-clinch, the two men gazed at her. “You don’t think a flimsy little door like that will stop us,” Caleb said.

“I think the thought of having to pay for the door to be fixed should stop you.” She stepped inside. “Five…four…”

Grady raced for the door, Caleb right behind him. This time they made it through without getting stuck. Fiona closed the door behind them.

“Now strip,” she said.

Grady had thought she only ordered him around because she outranked him. Now he knew better. She really was that tough. Alpha, Caleb had said. Caleb was right. They were mated to a tiny little alpha.

He could live with that.

By the time they’d finished stripping, she had the water on and the temperature adjusted. She stepped inside, her tight, curved ass disappearing behind the curtain.

This time, Caleb beat him to the pass. By the time Grady climbed into the tub, Caleb had Fiona pressed against the wall, her feet dangling a foot off the floor. Grady pressed against their sides, touching both of them as much as he could.

“We fit,” Fiona said when Caleb let her up for air.

“Just barely,” Caleb said. “And I’m not sure we’re going to get very clean this way.”

Fiona wrapped one leg around Caleb’s waist. “We’ll get clean sooner or later. In the meantime, maybe we need to fit together even closer.”

    A little fudging is fine as long as it’s still “believable” and within the context of the story. Thanks for participating in the hop!

  6. Sheri Savill says:

    Me, I think fudging, even a whole “lot,” (one person’s lot is another’s little bit, right?) is ok and even good in fiction. Fiction! Yes! Let the imagination run wild! 🙂 Escapism is good.

    Thanks for the awesome hoppage!

    I’m of the opinion that minor alterations to reality are acceptable for the purpose of increased hotness.

  8. Juli says:

    Silly, you can’t fudge “details” your own stories. They are YOURS, therefore “fudging” is only editing and your story. 🙂

  9. Renee B says:

    I agree with the Juli. It’s not fudging. It’s exercising your imagination to bring us (the readers) the ultimate experience by reading your stories. 😀

    Great excerpt. I think a little fudging is ok, as long as it is still believable. I tend to picture the scene in my head as I read, and sometimes I just can’t figure out the logistics no matter how many times I reread it.


  12. bn100 says:

    yes, it’s fiction

    Fudging is fine as long as the reader can get what the author is trying to convey.

  15. Jeannie Platt says:

    Fudging is totally fine as long as the reader connects and well it called fiction for a reason 🙂 Thanks for being part of the hop.

  16. BookAttict says:

    Sometimes fudging is okay for small things (but mostly because I’m a major fan of shower sex!)

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!
