He requires an Expert. She needs a hero.
Barrel requires an Expert for the Tau Cetian orphans. He’s looking for a female who is willing to commit to a lifespan-long role, who is comfortable with moving off planet, and who, preferably, has the ability to speak the offsprings’ first language.
Nola wants the role Barrel is offering so badly she bends a few truths. Yes, she was born off planet but she has lived almost all of her lifespan in sheltered Academies. Yes, she has learned Tau Cetian but she has never spoken with a local. Yes, she plans to follow the rules but his deep, sexy voice tempts her to rebel.
When a fact-morphing human academic meets her battle-worn cyborg warrior, deceptions are revealed, passions flare, and circuits sizzle. Wrong seems right. Lies turn into truth. The candidate least qualified for the role becomes the one candidate Barrel can’t let go.
Jumping Barrel is a short companion story in the Cyborg Sizzle series and is meant to be read after Releasing Rage, Breathing Vapor and Crash And Burn.
It is also a BBW Cyborg SciFi Romance.

I simply love these cyborg stories!
It is hilarious to see / hear the cyborgs attempt to understand the human female. The terminology is priceless! Their attempts to teach the young Tau Cetians is a bust. I can see why they need a nurturer such as Nola to assist them! Barrel is a dream come true with his protective instincts to these young ones, even the one he considers 'faulty.'
To get the most out of this short story, it's best to have read the previous books in the series, through "Crash and Burn."
I wish the story would have been longer. I was looking forward to finding out more about her relationship with Barrel and how things progressed with the children. I was a little disappointed. I hope more of their story will appear in sequels.
