    This is like eating dill pickle potato chips. At first, yummmm, this is really great, I can't believe how funny and witty this is. After awhile, I can't believe I'm still eating these....then I stop and take a drink of something. There they are so I start again....and before I know it, they're gone. Wait there's another bag (a sequel), oh what the hell.When foul-mouthed, rich and beautiful twenty something Caitlyn dies in an accident, a secret government agency rebuilds her and then expects her to work for them against the bad guys. Six billion dollar woman meets chick lit. Funny enough to read one sequel that I already own.

    I'm about half way through this one. To sum it up, it's Betsy, Queen of the Vampires in s cyborg body. But I like the story, it's just too close to the Undead books.Caitlyn James is 24 years old and is dead. She dies in a limo accident while partying it up with her sorority sisters where the driver is doing cocaine and drinking and plows the limo into a building. Caitlyn becomes the "guinea pig" for a government agency called OSF where they turn her into a cyborg. She is now the equivelant to the Terminator, complete with the strength and annoying computer "screen" on the lens of her eye. but like Betsy, she has kept her human side of wanting to stay normal and just like everyone else. Caitlyn never asked for these people to step in and now they want to use her as the bad-ass spy to save the world from all sorts of evil and of course Caitlyn has a business to run doing hair and nails and no time to be chasing punk teenagers who spend their time in their mothers basement creating viruses that invade computers and download porn. Nope, she just wants to be left alone...so as I said, really along the same lines as Betsy, I mean it even takes place in MINNESOTA! I'm waiting for Caitlyn to run into Betsy somewhere along the way. We'll see what happens with the rest of the book...finished the book. Turns out Caitlyn isn't the only cyborg in the mix and somebody is going around killing off the Wagner team that has been creating the cyborgs. Caitlyn is told that it is an agent gone rogue and she is to bring him in. Turns out the agent, or "The Wolf" thinks Caitlyn is the rogue cyborg and is supposed to be bringing her in. Well of course they fall for eachother,then they end up working together to find the real killer (after having raw cyborg sex) before the whole team of scientists is picked off. Another set of witty,mouthy,talking back, ain't gonna take none of your shit heroin(e) (can never remember which is the drug spelling and which is the female hero equivalent) That's what I like about MaryJanice Davidson, I love how her females are in charge and I wish I could come up with half the smack that comes out of their mouths!! I will say that I liked Hello Gorgeous very much but it just wasn't as funny as Queen Betsy. I also found that since this one is told in 3rd person, sometimes I became confused as to who was speaking certain lines.... All in all, I still liked it very much and will be reading the second book in the series, Drop Dead Gorgeous

    Hello, Gorgeous! Is a fairly decent read if you've got a couple hours to kill and are looking for some mindless fluff. It's rather silly and completely off the charts immature but sometimes that's just what you need. If you've liked Davidson's Queen Betsy series you'll probably enjoy this one as well. The style is pretty standard Davidson. The heroine is a little mean, a lot sarcastic and immature but gets the job done at the end of the day. Caitlyn has basically been used as a human guinea pig by the government. Turned into a "fully functioning cybernetic organism who has retained [her] humanity", without her permission, to be used as a weapon against terrorists. So, really, in her defense I think she's pretty damn justified in being a little pissed off. She so doesn't want to be any part of the governments plans which leads to some fairly entertaining quips with the "Boss". A little bitchy. A little crass. But I do like that she doesn't just let everyone walk all over her without putting up a little fight."Why Mirage?" "Because, frankly, nobody here ever knows when you'll show up for a mission. You've only yourself to blame for that one. Mirage." "I hate you. And it's not a simple, easy hate like people hating fish. I hate you like the plague. I hate you like a famine. I--""Mirage, can we speed this up? You have no idea what this is costing me per minute.""Aw, go bitch to AT&T. Listen, there were just a few tiny details you forgot to share with me when you sent me to Paris. Paris, Texas, you big jerkoff."He giggled. He couldn't help it. "Describe exactly what your face looked like when you found out you weren't in the City of Light. Leave out nothing."Her new mission is to take down the person that's killing the team behind the cyborg experiment. That leads her right to Dimitri Novakov who just so happens to be another cyborg and thinks Caitlyn's the killer! It was kinda fun to watch them trying to figure each other out and try to figure out who the real killer was. Again though the relationship was so much like Betsy and Sinclair in the Undead series. If you haven't read that series you'd probably enjoy this one a lot more since it would feel a little more original and not like such a repeat that's just had a few tweaks here and there. The thing that really put me off in Hello, Gorgeous! was that Caitlyn kinda grossed me out from the start when she had sex to "neutralize" a computer hacker on her first mission. One of those "lets boink and then you'll be cured of being slightly evil and a pain in the ass" kinda things. Yick. I'm not a fan of my heroines or heroes being easy and using sex like that. So it's not one that'll change the world or that had me completely captivated but it's a very quick read and not a bad bit of "junk food" reading. There are some funny moments that thankfully balance out the less than stellar/icky ones. Originally posted at Herding Cats & Burning Soup

    The book was ok, but if I'd realised it wasn't in first person, I doubt I'd have bought it. It's also quite short, and felt a little lacking. As others have mentioned, the protagonist is a mixture of intelligent, empty-headed and just plain lucky!In short, I was disappointed in this book. I'll read the next one, because I've already bought it, but I doubt I'll be buying any more in the series. Shame, because I love the author's Betsy books!

    Setting: 2004. Minnesota government research facility. Miami hair salon and single’s apartment. Lithuanian castle.Theme: love, trust, changeCharacters:Stacy Gwen – Caitlyn’s sorority sister, best friend, party friend. She is very happy when she finds out Caitlyn isn’t dead, as the first reports. The Boss: Gregory Hamlin, head of OSF. Intimidating, job focused. Caitlyn James: aka Mirage : 24, intelligent, loves her parties, owns a hair salon – purchased with money inherited from parents – and she put all the rest of her large inheritance into a trust for a charity. She changes her hair at the drop of a hat… still connected to her sorority sisters. She gets taken by a secret government agency when she is all but dead after an accident, and implanted with nanobots that heal and enhance her & is implanted with some sort of environmental reader that ‘speaks’ right into her brain.Dmitri Novakov aka Wolf – agent of some type, defusing a bomb in Berlin 8 years earlier.. He was first that the nanobots – he also refused to work for the Boss. He is handsome, reserved especially after the change. Plot – The OSF has the technology (expensive though it is) to place nanobots to enhance the physical abilities and to read their environment – a computer screen in one eye.When they are ready try again, Caitlyn shows up, dying from the accident she was in. When she wakes up, she is healed, she is strong, she can ‘see’ a screen that gives her readings about her environment (blood pressure, heart rate) and it interprets for her ( he is getting ready to lie)… she refuses to work for the OSF – then agrees to one job. (a nerd who is sending out computer virus’ – she is sent to neutralize him, she has sex with him, figuring that he was sublimating, and secures his promise to stop with the virus’) – but the Boss insists she’s not finished with them yet.She is running her salon (they play mother-in-law jeopardy), knows the Boss has sent a spy… and after a month, he calls her in. When she makes it to his office 36 hours later, he wants her to stop someone who is murdering… it ends up murdering his scientists, though she doesn’t find this out from him. She says no – she reads about some in the newspaper… and the next night, at her party, the Boss shows up, and ends up hooking up with her gorgeous friend Stacey – an unlikey, but likeable pair. Then a gorgeous man shows up, asks if she works for the OSF, she says no, he leaves. But as Stacey predicts, she decides she needs to help if she can. The Boss sends her to Paris…. Texas. And when she enters her room, Dmitri is there, and reboots her (an unknown possibility – a pressure point at the base of her neck). She decides to go with him (on his private jet to his castle in Lithuania) because she’s attracted to him, because she wants to find out if he is the murderer, and because she wants to prove she is not the murderer. He has her in psychology meetings with his mother – who likes her, and says she doesn’t think she’s guilty but you can never be sure when it comes to sociopaths (if that’s what she is ). His mom also tells her Dmitri’s history. Caitlyn questions how there could be another, when they told her that she if their first successful receiver of the nanobots that retained her humanity – what does that say about Dmitri?They like each other, they don’t know if they can trust one another… He comes to her room that night… after some petting, she sends him away, not wanting to have sex with him until she knows for sure he is not the murderer. He is hurt – others fear and distrust him, think he’s a freak, he doesn’t want that from her.In the morning, they hear of another murder – they rush back to Minnesota, now knowing neither is guilty – they have quick sex in the plane, though Dmitri is still holding back. He watches her confront the Boss over his relationship with her friend… and picks up when she says she won’t cry herself to sleep another night. His admiration for her is high, and he asks her what she meant – and she confides that she cried when he left her the night before – because she wanted to have sex with him but wanted to be sure about the murders first. He is relieved to find out she isn’t afraid of him… and they have sex. He is far advanced in his abilities with the nanobots, and starts a computer analysis of the possible suspects. And they make love – not just sex. And she goes to see the boss, and his secretary isn’t there… and she puts it together… and rushes to the last scientist, who is in protective custody – but she is late, the secretary (jealous over the Boss spending time on this project, and subsequently on Stacey) has shot the last scientist, and headed over too kill her friend. They rush there with the Boss – and ala the Six Million Dollar man, Dmitri and her jump up 5 stories to her balcony (she almost misses), carrying the Boss with them. They stop the secretary in a nick of time, though the Boss takes a bullet in the shoulder for Stacey – now Caitlyn has to be nicer to him. And Dmitiri asks Caitlyn to marry him, she says yes; she asks if he will help her with her new powers, he says yes; she agrees to live with him in Lithuania if hets central heat for the castle…

    While I normally enjoy Davidson's books as quick and enjoyable reads, this one didn't live up. The premise was interesting, but the conclusion of the mystery was juvenile. There was also a scene that came perilously close to rape, and although romance novels do often push the limits, this was awkward and uncomfortable.

    Caitlyn James died in a car accident.Caitlyn James was brought back to life.Sort of.There's a series of emails between “The Boss” and some doctor about whether or not to use her body in an experiment. Two months later, she runs into a friend of hers. While talking, Caitlyn thinks about what happened and how she was changed and is now working for the government.Caitlyn has refused to work for the government, though, and they send a squad to get her, but she beats them all up. She's essentially the Bionic Woman, with shades of the Terminator thrown in, plus some additional features.She talks to the Boss and agrees to do one job for him if the group will leave her alone after that. She also happens to own a salon.Her first task is to stop someone who is sending out email viruses. It's a teenager, and instead of killing him, she has sex with him. He agrees to stop sending the viruses.She threatens to tell everyone about the government agency, but the Boss says to go ahead, and that no one will believe her. (Which could mark a mistake in the story, as all she would have to do is find some doctor who could do blood tests on her and he would find nanites in her system.Caitlyn is sure Sara, a customer, is a spy for the Boss, and she is. The Boss wants her to do another job, but she refuses.She finds out she has an off switch, which gets her very, very angry. She goes with Dimitri, the guy who turned her off, and finds out Dimitri is a cybernetic organism, like her, and was made before her. The people who have been dying are ones on the team that made Caitlyn, and Caitlyn suspects Dimitri, and he suspects her.Someone else is killed, so Caityln and Dimitri now know neither one of them is the killer. They end up having sex. They finally catch the murderer.After that, there's a short story, Ten Little Idiots. A group of people are at a resort on an island. Someone appears to have been killed, but the police can't be called due to weather conditions. They find a body, but can't get to it because it's on the rocks below the mansion.They run into a problem when they realize that everyone in the group is accounted for, leaving them wondering exactly who was killed.The rest of the story involves a lot of sex, the revelation of who was killed and why, and more sex.First, the short story is sort of cute. The main story is okay, although the sexual angle is sort of repetitive of the events in the Undead but... series of books. Repetitive also is the woman-with-abilities theme falling for the man-who-has-similar-abilities, although this time, instead of a vampire, you have a six-million-dollar-man character.

    **Mild Spoilers**Again the dialogue is very childish, Caitlyn is Betsy, Stacy is Jessica and Dimitri is Sinclair.Problems with this book are that the main charecter does impulsive and stupid things for someone who is smart(eg: she gets on a Jet and flies to places unknown with a guy who had knocked her out earlier).She and Dimitri just fall in love, just like that. In the "Undead and Un..." series Betsy and Sinclair were destined to be together and here they love each other just because they are both Cyborgs and are horny.Stacy, also a black best friend, dates The Boss who sounds so incredibly ugly (dark hair but eyebrows so pale he looks eyebrow-less) they met at a party and had sex and it was lurve from then on. Dimitr tells Caitlyn that it took him 8 years to know the Bosses name and yet he (the Boss) tells Stacy after having sex (the name is Gregory btw)Her first job is to kill a computer geek who is spreading 3 viruses, not stop or arrest but KILL, of course she doesn't kill him instead she has sex with him and *bam* problem solved, computer geek loses interest in spreading viruses.The murder is just something tagged on because the story focuses more on Caitlyns hair/lust/angst/need for a manicure/cyborg abilities/sex drive than anything else. And just like in U&U Caitlyn spends a lot of time complaining about being turned into a cyborg and is incredibly rude to the Boss and this never changes, she bitches/whines/calls him names/throws tantrums/tries to kill him...we've seen this before!Plus, by the end of the book C&D are getting married and *suprise!* he happends to be a duke (no joke) so she is a Duchess and a Cyborg.She could have done so much with a story like this but she went the way of Undead & Un... with the only differance being Caitlyn is a Cyborg while Betsy is a Vamp, and the Undead and Un... series had a better...everything

    Caitlyn James is salon-owner in her mid-twenties, a woman who changes her hairstyle to suit her needs and moods. After a limo accident in Miami (a trip she had taken with her best pals to celebrate her birthday), she wakes up in a Minnesota hospital only to discover that she's been fixed up with nanobytes--she's the new Six Billion Dollar woman. None too thrilled that she's been enhanced without her knowledge or permission, Caitlyn has trouble adjusting to her newfound powers--and the fact that she now is indebted to The Boss, the man who had her enhanced and who runs a top-secret government organization. Caitlyn agrees to perform one job for The Boss--find and "neutralize" the guy responsible for infecting the world's computers with nasty viruses that download porn on a person's computer. When she finds the suspect, she realizes the geek only needs a thirty-second sexual encounter to curb his porn-virus habits. Only, of course, one job isn't enough for The Boss. There's another cyborg-enhanced OSF Agent loose in the world, someone who has gone rogue and is killing the doctors who make up the team that made them. The Boss is determined that Caitlyn will find the rogue agent--who he believes is Dmitri--and bring him to justice. Unfortunately, Dmitri is the first guy Caitlyn's been attracted to in a long time, and she has doubts that he's really the killer. Another MJD story with a sassy, loud-mouthed heroine, a to-die-for hero, and a best friend who pulls no punches in the form of Stacy, HELLO, GORGEOUS! is a quick, fast read. The story is rather short, but it's funny and typical MJD.

    I basically read this whole book in 3 days. There's a bit of suspense with a bit of romance tossed in. This is a book that's great if someone doesn't like lots of sex scenes as they are few and far between, that's not to say they aren't there but theyre are only 2 that I can remember. The others they just skip from the let's get it on stage to the wow that was great stage.Thebackground of the story is pretty simple, a 24 year old female with no family is in a fatal car accident, but a secret government agency steps in and saves her life by turning her into the Bionic Woman (her words). She doesn't appreciate what they did to her as no one asked her opinion. She refuses to work for them after what they did to her, but she gives in and does one assignment. Then she gets goaded into doing another assignment, and kicks butt and finds out that she's not alone, that there is another person out there who is "souped up".Caitlyn is a smart mouthed, independent person. When she's around the Boss, she wants to kill him for what he "did" to her. When she's around her friend Stacy, she's almost like a mother hen. When she's around Dmitri, she is in love.I'd love to read more about her adventures!

    Hello Gorgeous! Was an amusing story about a hair-dresser/cyborg secret agent from one of my favorite humor-loving romantics Mary Janice Davidson.It's been a while since I read an MJD book, I had to finally give up on Betsy queen of the vampires sometime around book 9 or 10...just one of those cases of a series going on a little longer then it probably should have. But I never forgot about Ms. Davidson and her un-canny ability to make me laugh out loud and smile through a good story about a kick ass female be she vampire, mermaid, or in this case cyborg.I liked this story, the plot was simple, the characters were enjoyable, and the dialogue was witty fast paced and realistic (as it always seems to be in an MJD book) That's not to say it was perfect, it was a bit predictable, and there were times when Caitlyn was basically just Betsy with robot parts...but I'm glad I read it non the less. This book was exactly what I was looking for, it was light, and fun, the sexy scenes were steamy, and the action fast paced and plentiful. 3.5 MJD did it again stars!

    Actually, 2.5 starsSometimes you want to read just for entertainment and this (mostly) fit the bill. Spoiler alert! (view spoiler)[What icked me out was the handling of the sex: first, she has sex with a young computer hacker -- she doesn't know him, know his age or has any connection to the kid -- to "neutralize" him and keep him from mischief. Sort of a mission written by a guy who's indulging in some fantasy play?Also, the first time the hero and the heroine have sex, he's angry at her because he thinks, she's rejected him. So, he walks in behind her into a room, locks the door, and proceeds to have sex with her. No communication & doesn't really care if his partner is interested.(hide spoiler)]For the most part though this was a fun, fast, fluffy read.

    Hello, Gorgeous! is book one in the Urban Fantasy, Gorgeous Series by MaryJanice Davidson. I love MaryJanice's writing style. In this story, Caitlyn James is in a car accident with her sorority friends. She's technically dead and the OSF turn her into the bionic woman. Now its time for Caitlyn to pay them back for saving her life. They're under the impression that she works for them, and she's not having any of it. When agents turn up dead, Caitlyn tries to solve the murder and meets another bionic agent, who's super yummy. I love the characters and writing. I loved the Undead series and can't wait to read the rest of the Gorgeous Series. Keep it up MaryJanice Davidson!

    I love most of MJ's books but this was pretty terrible. The writing was awful, the tone she used for certain people didn't mesh with the image of them she was trying to build, the story leaves so much to be desired...really a huge disappointment :( It's also vaguely annoying to see how much of MJ's other books was meshed into this story (even barely significant character names like Dara) almost as if she half doodled this story's rough draft while editing the Alaska & Undead series. I was very interested in the basic idea of a girl made into a Cyborg so may read the next book to see if it's any better.

    Super light and fluffy. Think Betsy woke up as the bionic woman instead of a vampire. Caitlyn is amusing. I love how much she insulted the boss, in fact their interactions are my favorite of the book. The main plot was a bit weak, but since it is meant to be light reading it entertained. There is also a short story. Kind of a parody of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, except the murderer confesses in the first paragraph and the guests try to figure out who was the victim. No real character development, not much of a plot and an unbelievable romance.

    This book was enjoyable. Still, I didn't appreciate the unnecessary use of profanity throughout the book, but this one wasn't as bad as the Royal. . . series (as far as the profanity content).I enjoyed the relationship between Caitlyn and Dmitri. Also, the references to current (or recently current) TV series make parts of the story funny because I've watched them and understand.I also like the wayMary Janice Davidson describes her characters. I can picture them in my mind.

    I have to admit that I am a super MaryJanice Davidson fan! I have, I think, all of her books - though maybe I took some to Book Exchange yesterday. I just love her stuff - it's irreverent and funny and real - and there's sexy men and love and lust and FUN! So - this was just another funny -fast moving book. I started it last night at like 9:15 and stopped at 11, then picked it up at 6:30 and finished at 7:30. I'm on a reading roll! Pick this one up for a good time - or ask to borrow it - it's cute and fun! (Have I said Fun or Funny enough already???)Jen

    I like MJD a lot, but I'm sorry to say that this book was utterly disappointing. Caitlyn James sounds more like an airhead to me and I really can't think of anything else better to describe her. I mean, how could a guy so dumb that he could fall for a girl that is shallow, ignorant, and spends most of her time complaining? Seriously, is that you who wrote it, MJD? Thank God I got this book in secondhand condition. I was reading it halfway very reluctantly and wondered whether I should just throw it out of my window or finish reading it.

    This book was fantastic and hillarious! I was expecting it to be really bad because of the reviews i read so it pleasently suprised me how much i liked it. Caitlin wasnt as ditzy as i thought she would be and i liked how there were side POV's with the main one remaining as Caitlin, I think it made it better. And Dimitri..sigh, lol. He was so nice and misunderstood.Can't wait to read the next one now!

    I've read this book before, I picked it up last night at a used bookstore and after finishing the emotional heartache that was 'Night' (Elie Wiesel) I needed something like and fluffy to get me through and this was it. I read it in an hour or two and it was exactly what I needed. It is not going to win a Pulitzer, and that is okay, it made me laugh and smile and escape for a while in the wonderful style of MaryJanice Davidson. And it had some wonderful sexy scenes.

    I bought this simply because MJ wrote it. I read the first few pages, sighed in defeat, and put the book away. I was devestated! My MJ can do no wrong, but the first pages of Hello Gorgeous ruined my otherwise perfect image of her.I tried again a few weeks later, skipping over the "omigod Becky!" type moments. The story quickly redeemed itself. It's snarky, silly, and a tad bit steamy, but MJ's readers are used to that! Think of it as the story of Betsy's bitchy cousin.

    Sorority girl, Caitlyn, finds herself recovering after a deadly limo accident -- only she didn't actually die. Now she's some kind of super-cyborg with amazing powers while still retaining her humanity. She tries to opt out of solving crimes for a special branch of the government, but the boss is having none of it. Caitlyn is a smartass with a severe case of potty mouth and a bit of a slut. Who better to save the world?

    I love the story, but I have to note that IMHO, all of MaryJanice Davidson's heroines are the same type, which can make them boring over a long period of time. However, in this story, I like the idea of science being used to bring back the dead, though other parts of the book are somewhat gimmicky and clichéd.

    Don't waste your time on this book. The plot idea was interesting. Kind of a bionic woman meets bionic man and they save people idea. But I could have definitely done without the love scenes. They were totally unnecessary and ruined the book for me. since I had to rate it, it only got one star.

    A fun read for the beach. Fast paced and hilarious action. In my opinion, not as good as her "undead and Unwed" series but still written in the same style. The heroine in this book is a hairstylist the government turns into a 'bionic woman' after she dies in a car crash... meeting a 'bionic' man leads to some exciting sex scenes.

    A solid little offering, with Betsy wearing a hairdressing cap instead of her vampire one.har harThere's something of Davidson's books that reminds me of candy. Sometimes, you crave it bad, and it's immensely satisfying when you eat it. But if you eat too much, you end up feeling ill.Davidson - best enjoyed in small doses when you're feeling crummy.

    Was at the Lakehouse and finished the only book I had with me. Was desperate for a quick read - but very not serious. This book? Terrible. Totally terrible. And yet, mildly entertaining. It certainly meets my criteria of needing fluff-reading. Need a beach read? Consider this. If it's free and falls into your lap. And you have a sense of humor. Of course, it's no Bikini Planet.

    Just what the doctor ordered. I wanted a funny, fast paced, easy read and that's exactly what this is pure entertainment. A sorority girl dies and is brought back to life by upgrade, thanks to the government. Now she's at beck and call to the suit and hates it. She's a hair dresser not a spy.This book was definitely laugh out loud funny. MaryJanice writes some great snappy dialogue.
