Danielle Steel steers away from her usual formulaic plots and tries a new style of writing. Unfortunately, she is not successful and this book is a work of tedious boredom. It took a lot of perseverance on my part to get through this book. And then I am disgusted with myself for the wasted time.
The premise of the book is this: males who are at the pinnacle of the business world believe their power enhances their charisma and becomes their drug of choice. Only to have it ultimately blow up in their faces. In this case, numerous affairs and a second hidden family. Females, in the same position, where power and success anesthetizes them and dulls their sexuality, lead very lonely personal lives.
