The Original Sinners # 1
Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she's sure it'll be her breakout book...if it ever sees the light of day.
Zachary Easton holds Nora's fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it's no deal.
Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him...or returning to his bed?
Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.
Don't tell. "
5 amazing stars!!!!
When I first read the blurb, or maybe it was the second time? Don't remember, but I thought that wow, this will do! This story is what I need right now.
I imagined that Zack will be this hardcore, dom type editor who'll kick Nora's ass, figuratively speaking :))
And Nora will be this submissive, brilliant woman with defiance in her eyes! Our regular BDSM. After long power struggle they'll finally settle down and live happily ever after.. I could have not been more wrong!
This story is nothing I've ever expected. And It's not a romance story either, so don't fool yourself with hopes of happy endings.
This is a horror story if anything and I think the 'author' IN this book would agree with me.
Here.. the person who loves you don't bring you flowers, no.. He beats you. Among other things..
That said, I wasn't disappointed with this book. Quite the contrary, I loved it! It's emotional, raw, true to the core. Full of desires and hurt and pain and love. Yes love.
But it's not a romance.
It's a horror story!
