When Alex Costerís company receives a
cryptic message concerning one of his androids, Alex decides
to take the assignment himself. Journeying from Earth to
Ruar, Alex is floored by Ruarian society, which completely
lacks sex drive. When he meets Em DíAlyn, the owner of the
android in question, Alex realizes that not all is as it
seems. Not everyone on Ruar has lost their sex drive, and
those who havenít live in fear of discovery.
Em is shocked by her instant attraction
to Alex. Curious to experience sex with a real male, Em
risks her very safety to engage in a passionate affair with
Alex. Heís able to bring her fantasies to life in a way no
android, however technologically advanced, could. Time is
their enemy as the lovers discover they match one another
perfectly, both in bed and out. Even as Alex and Em fall in
love, the Ruarian government becomes suspicious. For a
chance at love, Em might have to sacrifice her very being.
Service Call is perhaps
one of the most scintillating, sensual books Iíve read in a
long time. Itís a hot-as-hell erotic thrill ride and I was
completely enthralled not only the first time I read it, but
every time since.
Em is a delightful, likable heroine.
Sheís sweet, intelligent, has an innocence about her that is
charming, and an eagerness to learn about that which has
been denied to her, which makes her endearing. Alex is
truly a delicious hero. He has a commanding presence, but
heís so loving towards Em and has such a compassionate
manner about him that it is impossible not to fall for him.
As I mentioned before, Service
Call is sensual to the max. Cheryl Dragon doesnít
hold back when it comes to the love scenes. Though varied
and plentiful, I never felt they were overdone, and I was
happily along for the ride, wherever the book lead. The
only downside to Service Call is Emís
assistant, Cin. Perhaps Cinís nature is a commentary on how
hiding oneís true nature because the governmentís
restrictions can shape a personís personality. But Cinís
spoiled, selfish nature truly grated on my nerves.
Overall I found Service Call
to be intriguing, erotic, and highly entertaining. Though
fairly new to Ms. Dragonís work, I look forward to reading
many more of her stories in the future.
