To make matters worse, they’ve almost finished the book too.

What does Sex/Life book author B.B. Easton think about the Netflix show?

The Netflix series is far from a faithful adaptation of the novel. In fact, it changes some core details.

However, while that would bother some authors, B.B. Easton doesn’t mind at all.

“All of the changes Netflix made were really done with the audience in mind,” she told The Telegraph.

“Like, how are we going to make this the best, most shocking, most relatable, wildest ride of a TV show possible? And Netflix knew the best way to do that was bringing the ex-boyfriend into the present-day situation.”

However, she warns that the depiction in the Netflix adaptation of her relationship should not be tried in real life.

She added: “As the viewer, you want to see them hooking up in real-time. So I thought it was a brilliant decision. But in real life? Not a good idea.”

Meanwhile, fans around the world are asking if there’s going to be season 2? Here’s everything we know so far.
