Audible Editor Reviews

When Jill, a space trader in a male-dominated business, finds Coal, an abused cyborg breeding slave with irreversible damage, she takes pity on him and gives him refuge on her ship. But Jill is damaged, too: In space, women have few rights, a fact her abusive ex-husband made clear. A grateful Coal decides to repay Jill by "fixing" her - with physical pleasure. Mindy Kennedy's cool, silky performance in Stealing Coal brings a sensuality to this explicit story of tender, sexual healing between a cyborg and a human.

Publisher's Summary

Book 5 in the Cyborg Seduction series.

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.

    "Coal's big Heart learned to love and trust :)"
    Any additional comments?

    Stealing Coal is a terrific addition to the Cyborg Seduction series, which just keeps getting better! Laurann Dohner had me hooked right from the first paragraph of the first chapter. Before I knew it I was was lost in the romance, the passion, drama and adventure. There’s never a dull moment for space trader Captain Jill and her three android sidekicks, and today is no exception. She sticks her neck out, against her better judgment, to save a handsome cyborg male from further torture and abuse.

    For her own safety, Jill keeps the cyborg, Coal, a prisoner aboard her ship, despite his insistence that he can be trusted not to harm her. She has learned from past experiences that women are not always treated as well as they should be by men. Coal, like Jill, has had his own traumas and demons to deal with, after having been brutally treated by women cyborgs and kept as a breeder slave. So they are both mistrustful of the other's motives, until forced to cooperate during an emergency. When Coal offers her the one skill he has as a means to repay her for helping him, Jill is understandingly apprehensive. But with reluctant surrender comes an outcome neither could have predicted. And both are left shaken when his ‘gift of pleasure’ tenderly given to help and heal, is generously, if at first tentatively, reciprocated.

    "Not my favorite in the group...."

    Stealing Coal was good, but not the best in the group...

    Coal had too many issues and so did Jill. Great story...just not the best in bunch.

    Narration was great, as usually.

    Yes, worth the credit or buy... if you have all the rest in the series... This book really sets you up for Zorus story.

    Story
    "Not great...but something pulls me back"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This refers to the series.
    The biggest change that I would make would be to rewrite the sex scenes. They are poorly written. With excessive use of: _ussy, sex lips, _ussy lips, vaginal walls. It is acceptable to keep the language of a sex scene simple...we're not simple...we'll get it.

    Sentences such as, "She was wet because of what he'd done to her"...dah..that's what generally happens, only insult the reader. I wouldn't have the heroines blurting out their sexual history and how long it's been since they got "any" in the first minutes of meeting their captor/partner.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The stories are pretty simple. Something about them draws me in. I don't generally listen to a series that I would rate less a 4. As far as what I would change...I would be more descriptive of the settings and environment. And have more personal conversations and non sexual time together to establish the believability of a deeper relationship.But...honestly, with these books, you can't really expect depth.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was fine


    Was Stealing Coal worth the listening time?

    For me it was. It's not one that I would really recommend to friend. It's by no means, great writing or a great story. It was an interesting, mindless listen at the time.

    "Good read, poor performance"
    What did you love best about Stealing Coal?

    I enjoyed the story as I do with all of Laurann Dohner's books, Coal is a very likeable character and so is Jill, I am very amused by the assumptions and wrong conclusions that keep happening throughout the series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Coal didn't believe a message that was sent to the ship, I really liked his faith in his feelings for Jill and her feelings for him.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The only problem I have is with the narration. The narrator takes a deep breath every few sentences and I found this to be a bit distracting and frustrating, like she got a brand new and very sensitive microphone to speak into. I have heard other books by this narrator, without the same issue. I hope future narrations won't have the same problem.

    "Another great addition to the series"
    Would you listen to Stealing Coal again? Why?

    The narrator is the reason that I have purchased every audio book in this series. The story is good but the narrator Mindy Kennedy makes this book a thousand times better!!! A narrator can totally kill a book and this is an example where the narrator just makes this book AMAZING!!! Great Job

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Good Series But!!!"

    I think the stories are all pretty decent in this series but it doesn't really feel like a series. You can really read any of these as stand alone books. The received 4 stars rather than 5 Because:

    1) there is very little follow up on previous characters when reading the whole series. That is one of the reason I love series is so I can check in with characters I already know and see how the relationships etc are progressing. There is mention of previous names but no real follow up on couples.

    2) This series has a main point of breeding but none of the (female) characters ever get pregnant. I personally enjoy adding a family dynamic in romances that are specifically breeding oriented - even if just to say that the female is pregnant and not much else.
    I have one more book (Redeeming Zorus) to go but am not holding out any hope for those things I feel are missing.

    3) Again as in all the books in the series the sex scenes are OK but repetitive and very vanilla. Breasts get talked about but hardly ever touched. All the men are huge you know where and the women are so tight which that gets mentioned over and over.

    I think the concept is great but the books could have been developed a bit more. It seems the author almost gets there but not quite, just a bit lacking. I really don't think it would take much to pull it all together and making the series great.

    Mindy Kennedy makes the book come to life with her outstanding narration

    Story
    "Endearing Cyborg Romance"

    Stealing Coal was an enjoyable listen. Like the other Cyborg stories this one was hot and lusty but was really more about two people finding love after being abused by those that should've been loving to them. It was more endearing and tender than some of the other stories because Coal didn't have the inner technology to control his emotions like his Cyborg buddies, so it was nice that he just felt and let it all hang out there. Coal's story is somewhat tame until about the last three hours where things really rev up considerably--that's not to say that the other 4 or so hours were lacking, but, they weren't as 'charged' as some of the preceding books have been right from the start. All that said, this series is still a winner for me and I'll continue to purchase however many books remain. It's priced reasonably, so I don't recommend using a credit.
