Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Romance titan Steel doctors up a familiar formula with fresh results. Having had just about enough of the gadabout ways of dot-com millionaire and perpetual Peter Pan, Blake Williams, Maxine, 42, divorced him five years ago and is raising their three children (ages 13, 12 and six) while running a thriving psychiatric practice specializing in childhood trauma and adolescent suicide. Blake, meanwhile, is continent-hopping among houses in London, Morocco and New York, bedding nubile young things. Maxine and Blake have remained friends, but when a horrific teen suicide case leads Maxine to meet doctor and childless divorcé Charles West, she finally falls for the type of man she thinks she's always wanted: serious, responsible and a bit stuffy. A disaster makes Blake rethink his lifestyle, however, and Maxine suddenly has a choice to make. While Steel never locks in on her characters' emotions, she keeps the pages turning and offers a satisfying twist at book's end that most readers won't see coming. (June)

Customer Reviews

I liked the book. easy to read.
johanna saenen
The ending was cute, but felt rushed and should have been drawn out over several chapters.

I haven't read a Danielle Steele book for some time and now remember the reason.

Format: Hardcover
Five yeas ago, then late thirties Dr. Maxine Williams was tired of raising four children; three were her preadolescent kids (the oldest was seven at the time) while one was her dot-com wealthy husband Blake. She divorced Blake though they remain friendly; and their three children live with her. Maxine's psychiatric practice specializes in childhood trauma and suicide while Blake is an international womanizer having young females on several continents.

Maxine becomes embroiled in a depressing teen suicide case in which she meets divorced Dr. Charles West. They are attracted to each other as she relishes his commitment and responsibility. Blake becomes embroiled in a tragedy that makes him aware of what he has lost. He suddenly rushes home to persuade Maxine that he has changed. Maxine is torn between two lovers.

This is an entertaining romantic triangle with a terrific final twist. The story line is fast-paced and the lead trio seems genuine as does her three kids. Although the emotions of Maxine pulled by two opposites, the rogue and the responsible one, are never dug deep enough beyond a shallow level to satiate the audience, Danielle Steel's fans will appreciate this well written character driven tale.

Books like this one are the unfortunate result!
I think this is the second Danielle Steel book I've ever read in my life and I'm pretty certain it will be my last. This novel reads like a 320-page outline of a story idea that the author either lacked the time or the desire to fill in and develop. Characters are never fleshed out -- (which I guess is difficult to do with cardboard). Instead of scenes we get summaries of scenes -- as though any action that might have been remotely interesting took place off stage! And I don't think I've ever read so many cliches in one book. In the end, I cared about none of the characters because the writer gave me nothing to care about! In short it's just a horribly, horribly done book that the author seemed to have written with an indifference that shows no respect for the following that has made her a success and very, very wealthy.When I finished this book I was just pissed that I wasted my time -- and money.And the editor of this mess should be fired.

Format: Hardcover
If you're thinking about reading Rogue, reconsider. I found this book to be the most mundane, predictable and utterly ridiculous book Steel has written yet. Rogue is about a shrink named Maxine who lets her school-aged child sleep in her bed, who swears she is destined to help troubled teens but yet somehow cannot seem to manage her own teen, and who walked away from her marriage to a rich entrepreneur named Blake only to fall in love with a respectable doctor named Charles, who she later decides is a jerk, but not before accepting his proposal for marriage and stringing him along for several months. You can't help but feel sorry for Charles as he gets jilted again and again in this book. Somehow we are supposed to rejoice at the end as Blake tells Charles off and Blake ends up marrying Maxine instead. Maxine's character is not likeable and that is perhaps one of the bigger downfalls of this book.

Bottom line- HUGE disappointment and so very predictable!

Come on, Steel, you owe your fans more than this!

Format: Hardcover
Danielle Steele always has a good story up her sleeve, and Rogue is no exception. The only caveat is that you have to wade through the very slow beginning before the meaty stuff kicks in. Believe me, the first third of the book will put you to sleep, but as the story line picks up, you won't be able to put it down. And the ending makes it all worth it.

Dr. Maxine Williams is a successful, world-renown child psychiatrist who is the single mother of three children. Her ex-husband, Blake Williams, is a free-wheeling, playboy billionaire who loves to party and live life in the fast lane. Ironically, he and Maxine remain very close friends, despite having been amicably divorced five years ago. They are both seem very happy living their separate lives. Maxine meets Dr. Charles West, an internist, through a tragic episode involving one of her young patients, and Blake seems to have fallen very much in love with an eccentric, beautiful English artist. While Blake is in Morocco with plans to build his dream home, a tragedy occurs that shatters his jet-setting world and forces him to "grow up" overnight. He desperately needs his ex-wife's medical expertise, and within a short time, Maxine is thrown head first into a triangle that forces her to choose between the stability she longs for with Charles or the supposedly newly-transformed Blake.

As I mentioned before, this starts off painstakingly slow, but stick with it; the plot picks up and the characters are truly unforgettable. The ending is pretty predictable, but still worth it.

This is the first Danielle Steel novel that I have read and I was not impressed. What a bore!! I agree with the other reader who said the book was a waste of time! The book screamed bad Lifetime movie of the week. Save your money...thankfully I did by borrowing it from the library!
