Original Sinners, Book 2

Review of Original Sinners, Book 1

Heat Factor: There is a lot of sex, between a bunch of different people (separately and together).

Heat Factor: There’s flogging but no descriptions of genitalia.

Character Chemistry: Nora is all that is desirable, and therefore has pretty good chemistry with just about everyone.

Plot: Erotica Writer and Stuffy British Editor revise her latest book. 

Overall: Please read this book so I have someone to talk to about it.
