He requires an Expert. She needs a hero.Thoughts on Jumping Barrel: This one's quite a bit shorter than the others in the series, so it moves quickly. Very quickly. Which isn't a bad thing except I'm kinda digging on these cyborgs right now and wouldn't have minded a little more set in their world.
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.
But it's cool. Because Barrel and Nola find their happy place and that's what it's all about, right? Well, that and teaching all the orphans they saved from Tau Ceti. Which Nola is (mostly) qualified to do.
Again, it moves quickly and there's not a lot of waffling about the situation they find themselves in. The universe likes to throw these cyborgs and their special lady friends together and that's exactly what happened. *thumbs up*
