    Not my favourite of Danielle Steel s At times with all of the descriptions of upper class life it reminded me of Penny Vinchenzi, but less well done.

    It pains me, truly pains me, to rate a DS book 3 stars But I couldn t bring myself to give it any than that And I am going to explain why First off, I should point out that it was an okay story It was written well It was different then what DS usually does It was likegrittier than normal Not the normal light and fluffy Kezia was almost selfish and rude I understand that she wanted to do things for herself but she could have went about it a different way Kezia just throws peop It pains me, truly pains me, to rate a DS book 3 stars But I couldn t bring myself to give it any than that And I am going to explain why First off, I should point out that it was an okay story It was written well It was different then what DS usually does It was likegrittier than normal Not the normal light and fluffy Kezia was almost selfish and rude I understand that she wanted to do things for herself but she could have went about it a different way Kezia just throws people away without any regard to their feelings Not to mention she lies Yes, I know that she has to protect herself but outright lying is just wrong.When she met Luke, she became a totally different person and it wasn t a good thing She became whiny and needy She gets bitchy at everybody around her She constantly demanded the attention of Luke, even though he was busy doing his thing Luke was recently released from jail and was an outspoken advocate for better treatment of prisoners in jails That was good I appreciated Luke and who he was I didn t really care for the world building either The world was the socialite world I know that it s supposed to be pretty fake and not deep, but it was almost way too fake DS just made the world seems too fake It felt forced The ending killed it for me view spoiler Luke dies in prison after they revoke his parole hide spoiler I thought this was a pretty dumb ending It felt forced, like he had to view spoiler die or the story wasn t going to work hide spoiler I also didn t like how we didn t know what Kezia was going to do If you are going to do an ending like that, I would at least want some sort of direction so I had some idea of what was going on Overall, I m not impressed It was an okay book but there were so many things that could have been done differently

    not Steel s best by any means While I was intrigued by all the places the character went, I found this novel lacking depth She just travels from party to party, restaurant to restaurant and club to club for the first third of the book, possibly , gathering information for the column I found the pairing of her and Johns to be unlikely in her elite set and while it was sweet in concept, I didn t find it believable the best part of this book is all the traveling and fashion that are menti not Steel s best by any means While I was intrigued by all the places the character went, I found this novel lacking depth She just travels from party to party, restaurant to restaurant and club to club for the first third of the book, possibly , gathering information for the column I found the pairing of her and Johns to be unlikely in her elite set and while it was sweet in concept, I didn t find it believable the best part of this book is all the traveling and fashion that are mentioned and the way the main character parodies it and the materialistic set that must have a pair of gucci Other than that, it was a bore

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here First I will start off with what I didn t like about this book I thought Edward was a controlling old pervert that was in love with someone half his age I felt that when Kezia didn t see things and do things his way, he threw a childish little tantrum I also thought that Lucas was full of himself I didn t like him either What I did like about the book is how Kezia found herself She didn t like the rich fancy party scene and just wanted to be herself and the fact that she did it against Edw First I will start off with what I didn t like about this book I thought Edward was a controlling old pervert that was in love with someone half his age I felt that when Kezia didn t see things and do things his way, he threw a childish little tantrum I also thought that Lucas was full of himself I didn t like him either What I did like about the book is how Kezia found herself She didn t like the rich fancy party scene and just wanted to be herself and the fact that she did it against Edward s best judgement made me happy for her All in all a very good book I liked it very much

    This is such a silly book I could not feel any empathy regarding the woman What a terrible problem So rich And the guy struggling with a program in Harlem, she never thought about helping to fund it When she is in crisis, she goes shopping Terrible And why should leftists be against a movement to improve prisons I like many of Danielle Steel books, even if she likes so much to describe the life of very rich people, but this one was too much for me.
