Danielle Steel's forty-seventh bestselling novel is very much about the tides of our times, changes and responsibilities in the workplace pull two people in different directions, sweeping them into new lives and changed worlds----. Irresistible Forces For fourteen years, Steve and Meredith Whitman have sustained a marriage of passion and friendship - despite the demands of two all-consuming careers.  Meredith, an investment banker, has achieved partnership in one of Wall Street's top firms.  Steve A gifted physician, chose an urban trauma ward over the big money he could have earned elsewhere.  The only thing missing in their lives is children.  Steve longs for them.  But Meredith keeps putting off motherhood, saying she isn't ready and doesn't have time.  Not yet.  Especially now that she has been offered an extraordinary opportunity, a chance to reach for the brass ring - in San Francisco, three thousand miles away.  Meredith is thrilled and surprised when Steve urges her to accept a top position at an exciting young high-tech company.  Traditionally, men's careers forces families to move to new cities, compelling their wives to abandon friends, home, and lives to follow.  But Steve is more than willing to uproot himself. Saying he'll join her as he can find a new job himself, they can begin their family at last. Neither Steve nor Meredith had reckoned on the frustrations of a bi-coastal marriage, as Steve's job keeps him in New York for months longer than planned.  Weekends together, their lifeline, fall prey to their hectic schedules.  Alone in San Francisco, Meredith is spending long hours at the office with her boss, charismatic entrepreneur Callan Dow.  Steve working late shifts at the hospital, grabbing an occasional dinner with a new colleague, a doctor raising a daughter on her own.  Almost unnoticed, Steve and Meredith have begun living separate lives in increasingly separate worlds.  And despite the best of intentions, irresistible forces begin to tear their lives and hearts apart. With unerring insight, Danielle Steel explores what happens when lives that fit together like delicately balanced puzzles are shifted, changed, and drift apart.  Only time can tell who and what they will become as life sweeps them onward and deposits them on new, sometimes frightening, and often exciting shores.  Who survives, is at the core of Irresistible Forces.… (mais)

Irresistible Forces by Danielle Steel
Meredith and Steve are married and live in NY. He's a trauma ER Doctor and with her career of trading and taking over stocks, making them public keeps them both away from each other more than with each other.
She travels all the time, even overseas and it keeps her very busy. The last public stock she was in charge of was running smoothly.
Cal had 2 teen girls and divorced and was helping her with the transfer. He had taken her out of dinner in London and even dancing. They spent more time together than she with her husband.
Her clock was ticking and Steve had wanted kids and she's not sure she's quite ready yet as the child would be left behind when she was traveling.
When Cal's CFO leaves Cal wants her to take the position. He pushes her into meeting him in CA to discuss the position and her husband is all for it as well. He's ready for a change.
So many choices and so many decisions to make for them both, once they make it it's even harder to find time for one another, how is that possible? ( )

About a loving couple that cared deeply about each other despite their busy lives as a financier and a doctor, but were separated coast to coast by the wife’s upward job movement and how they finally succumbed to the temptations of people where they were and ended up divorcing; the wife marrying her boss and the husband being saved from death by his lover, an Hispanic doctor, and them getting back together. I don’t like the way Steel plays with her characters and morality, but there is no story without such ( )

No-brainer reading with typical FANTASTIC sex /snerk. I just read Danielle when I need something light and fast that does not make me think too hard. ( )
