I kind of had the same question. The book I'm reading they did it on the car hood and an elevator so far...

I am in for the challenge, probably at the excellent level.


message 19: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments You two are killing me. LMAO.

I think maybe one scene for one book, LOL! Maybe, in this case, the one you liked the best. :)

Diane, which book is that? ;)

Diane, please let us know what book that is. Enquiring minds want to know, and to read :-)


message 21: by Diane ~Firefly~ (new)

Diane ~Firefly~ | 51 comments They ended up doing on a desk during a stake-out as well and I think in a garden also. Another couple in the book decided to be normal and only do it in a bed...

That's one of the one's I'm planning to read. I heard there's all sorts of weird places where couples decide to get together in this series.

Heather, I think it is wise you chose the couch instead of the shower. I think you're sure to get another shower scene somewhere. IMHO! I've read a lot of them. Or maybe I just remember them better, LOL!
