Alex never visits Ruar unless he has to. A society in which any type of sexual contact is frowned upon and warned against, Alex just wants to fulfill his company’s work order. Get in, get out, go back to Earth. That mantra lasts about five minutes after meeting Em. From the moment he meets her, Alex senses her inner sensuality and yearning for all things sexual. When she tells Alex her desires, he throws caution to the wind and agrees to program her droid how she wants. Of course, to get it programmed correctly, Alex and Em must first practice her desires. And practice they do.
Cheryl Dragon had me hooked with the blurb for SERVICE CALL. I found her idea of a sexless society interesting and, while futuristic, believable. Em’s desires to be dominated actually made sense because of the control she had to exert to remain calm and almost unisexual. Alex’s domination of Em and the feelings he felt for her made her efforts worthwhile.
For a new look at a futuristic society with a great plot and highly engaging love scenes, SERVICE CALL is the book for you. I wonder if Alex is in the yellow pages?
