One minute I'm out with my sorority sisters; the next there's a terrible accident (beyond my friend Stacey's outfit) and I'm waking up in some weird clinic transformed into a human cyborg--with a mission: to stop evil and stuff. Uh, hello? I've got a beauty salon to run.
Granted, it is cool to run faster than a Ford Mustang when I need to, even if it's totally hard on my shoes. But then I have to bring in another human cyborg on the run? One who happens to be male, totally gorgeous, smart, funny--and, um, his "enhancements"?--as if!
Okay pretty entertaining. Not a "stay-with-me-forever" read, but definitely fun for a day read. I enjoyed Davidson's Alaskan Royalty trilogy. This was the beginning of the Cyborg series. Like the Royal series, this was one was funny. Full of crazy adventures, quirky characters, and funny dialogue. I really liked the main character, Caitlyn. She's just wild enough, but still likeable.
I started the second book, but just couldn't get into it. I eventually stopped reading it after about 70 pages. Just like the Royal series, there was a wild difference in likeability. Oh well, on to the next book.
