Jill has learned the hard way that men can’t be trusted and sex only causes pain. In the lawlessness of space, women are a sexual commodity—to be used and abused. She’s doing a man’s job, with only her father’s brutal reputation and three androids to help keep her alive when she sees a massive, handsome cyborg chained to a freight table. The abusive crew plans to sell him to fight in gruesome death matches. It’s stupid, it’s insane, but Jill can’t leave him to such a horrible fate.

Coal has survived being a captive breeding slave and irreversible damage to his cyborg implants, but his honor is still intact. He’s grateful Jill saved him and he’ll repay her the only way he can. He’ll fix her—with his mouth, his hands and his body. He can teach the little human just how much pleasure she’s capable of feeling.


Sealing Coal is book five in the Cyborg Seduction series by Laurann Dohner.

Jill is not perfect, but she’s adorable and funny. She’s on a routine pickup when she over hears the slavers talking about taking the Cyborg to an illegal fight club. She knows what it’s like to be physical and sexual abused and makes a decision that will change her life. 

Coal I feel is one of the best cyborg’s so far. I like him. He’s damaged yet sweet. He doesn’t let his defect nor what happened to him stop him from living his life. He promises to help Jill keep her ship running as well as help to fix her. 

The story is fast paced and action packed. Trust is something both have to overcome. They both need healing which they find in each other. I liked their romance and felt that it had the perfect amount of heat and love.

Sealing Coal was nice read and I liked it.

Rated: 3.5 Stars

Nice review. I seem to enjoy the romances that require mutual trust to develop first. I also like the covers from this series.

Yes, this does sound like they were great for each other. It’s been a few years so I can’t remember which ones I read, but I read a few of the earliest in this series when I was in a cyborg romance craze. I should get back to the series.
