Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Having had 46 previous bestsellers, Danielle Steel knows a good plot recipe when she's got one--namely, take a smart, beautiful woman who is dissatisfied with her loving but stuffy husband, add a romantic, usually older man with a true appreciation of her inner soul, then sit back and watch the melodrama unfold. In this latest novel, our heroine Meredith Whitman is a career-driven investment banker, our husband Steve a sweet physician, and our other man, Cal Dow, a high-tech business Midas. When Cal offers Meredith the perfect job in San Francisco, Steve encourages her to move across country, and promises to follow her as soon as he can. Meredith and Steve's marriage begins to crack under the pressures of the distance, and soon "irresistible forces" come into play. Don't expect profundity, although Danielle Steel can make even the most sordid affairs seem romantic, or at least entertaining. --Nancy R.E. O'Brien --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
I have been an avid Danielle Steel reader for years and with every book you find likes and dislikes. With Irresistible Forces I found Steve to be and honest and hard working individual trying to make the best out of a busy trauma unit, i enjoyed the way Steel sent her lady character around the world on a working business trip with a handsome, sophisticated, wealthy man with no hanky panky, it showed that Merrie had integrity, that she was committed to her husband.. As a dislike, the story was drawn out, it could have been done in less words, there was a lot of repetitiveness, i didn't feel really connected with the characters, you couldn't get into the storyline with them... I'll still add it to my collection of Steel novels but the chances of reading it again are slim to none... Not her best work...

More than anything, I was disturbed by the message that this book conveys, that fleeting feelings are more important than a 15 year marriage. I think the outcome could have been much better! It made me sad. Besides that, it was a very hum drum book, and was quite predictable. Don't waste your money.

Although the storyline was readable, Irresistible Forces is very typical of Danielle Steel's latest work: unsophisticated, repetitive, shallow, barely edited. I wish she would come out with something that resembled her earlier and more worthwhile novels. (I wish she would read her customer reviews so she would have some sort of clue about the quality of her work!)

Danielle Steele's latest is a superficial story about an incredibly selfish woman. Ms. Steele attempts to create the "Perfect Woman" for her character in the blonde, successful, rich, etc. (ad nauseum) personna of Meredith, a/k/a "Merrie", who unceremoniously dumps her brilliant but rumpled-looking husband of more than fourteen years for her California-style, tan, rich and famous new boss. After an unsuccessful attempt at a coast-to-coast marriage interrupted by a totally unbelievable number of coincidental disasters which prevent Merrie from spending the weekend with her husband, she ends up in bed with her boss. Please Ms. Steele - try to imagine that your readers have at least the sense of a flea and come up with more believable characters and plots.

There wasn't much more to this book then what was written on the cover. Only ONE thing towards the end that wasn't mentioned on the cover, and that didn't effect anything. It never "grabbed" me, kept boring me with details that made no difference to the story whatsoever. Same things over and over and over, like we didn't get it the first 5 times before. It was as if a child with simple language had written this story. I kept reading and hoping SOMETHING interesting would happen, but then the book ended. Save your money or I'll sell you my copy, CHEAP. :)

I used to buy every Danielle Steel book without reading the fly covers. My favorites are Message from Nam and Family Secrets. Some of her more recent ones I wasn't too crazy about. Irresistible Forces sounded good and I have to admit I finished it in a day. Easy reading. However, being happily married, I was downright depressed when I finished this book and rather than putting it in the keeper pile I put it in the "books to be given to the library bag. I just found this book really depressing and I can't help wondering if Steel's recent marital woes are reflected in her writing. Hope she gets happy soon.

What a waste of money! I've read all of Danielle Steels books and this was soooo disappointing. I thought "Merrie" was a selfish, cold, unfeeling career woman and Steve was a fool! I kept expecting some great event to occur but it never did! The book was one big repetition.

I have read every one of Ms. Steel's books, but this may be the last one! Is she getting senile, or am I? She repeated herself over and over and over, yes, they were both workaholics! I love to read, but this was almost work to finish. Please, publish less and give your fans MORE.
