Two Lips Review
Dr. Penelope Drake is hoping to cure a virus called Sex or Suffer, which infects women only, making it necessary for them to have sex, with no pleasure involved. The consequences are intense suffering and pain that grow until a male ejaculates inside their body. Penelope uses the last of the cure available to her on a patient against the orders of her superiors. She then, mysteriously, contracts the virus herself. Feeling she cannot tell anyone she has the virus, she must get off of Bravura and on to Parsec colony where they have more of the cure available. So Penelope gets on The Dalton, the first transport ship she can to take her to Parsec.
The Dalton is manned by Gray Wyckoff, who at first doesn’t want to take any passengers off world. The crew has just come back from a long journey and the last thing they need is to go off on another one without some down time in between. However, Penelope convinces them to take her to Parsec Colony, but once on board The Dalton the virus goes full force in affecting Penelope.
But lucky for Penelope, Gray and his first officer Nathan are more than ready to help her out. Now all Penelope has to do is get to Parsec Colony and get the cure. Only thing is, more than one person seems to want Penelope to not make to Parsec or get the cure.
Was Penelope infected on purpose? And what happens when medicine sex becomes something deeper, something like love? Will she still feel that way about the Captain of The Dalton when she doesn’t have to have sex or suffer?
Lara Santigo has a sci-fi adventure full of steamy sex, and mystery in Sex or Suffer. We meet Penelope who is a strong independent woman and in charge of herself which does not endear her to the men around her. However, she remains a good person wanting to help others throughout. Gray is a wily captain and he knows he has rules to follow and he tries to follow them, but he can’t help himself from being a rule breaker. He is drawn to Penelope, not just because she is a hot woman who wants sex, but he feels a connection to her that grows deeper for him the more he is around her. I was riveted while reading Sex or Suffer as there is depth of character in Penelope and Gray that lasts until the end. You will not be sorry when you pick up Sex or Suffer – this is a wonderfully romantic story you will want more of!
