Terrible. Seriously cannot recommend this to anyone unless it is to an avid Steel fan who must complete their collection. Could not get past chapter two although started out promising almost like a chick lit. I dare you to take it off my shelf.

Stephanie had a rat for a husband. But after thirteen years of marriage and two kids, she was devastated when he left her for a younger woman. Suddenly Stephanie was alone. And after months of trying to find a little romance on New York's wild singles circuit, she was ready to give up, reconciled to just raising her two great, but outspoken, kids. Then a spur-of-the-moment trip to Paris changed everything.

She met him on the Left Bank. Peter Baker was a marvelously handsome high-tech entrepreneur also visiting the city. Stephanie was certain it couldn't possibly work. Peter was just too perfect. But much to her amazement, he contacted her when they returned to New York. And at the Long Island rental cottage she shared with her kids, Stephanie embarked on a bizarre and hilarious adventure beyond her wildest dreams.

Wow! Talk about an amusing story. One real man, one Klone. Who will she ultimately choose? One has great style and the other is pretty flashy. Who will make her feel the most safe? Have to read this one yourself. I couldn't put it down. Finished in a few hours.

But then . . . Shy, serious Peter, chairman of a bionic enterprise, was supposed to be away on business. Instead, he's standing at her door, wearing day-glo satin and rhinestones. Naturally, Stephanie thinks it's a joke--until the truth suddenly dawns: this isn't Peter playing a role. This is his double! Calling himself Paul Klone, this wild, uninhibited creature isn't even remotely like Peter except for his identically sexy good looks.

The Klone and I starts out normally enough: after a 13-year marriage, Stephanie, 41, gets dumped for a busty young bimbo. "She was gorgeous. And I felt nauseous," Stephanie reflects--though she admits that things hadn't been going well, what with hubby living off her trust fund and their having sex every six months or so. Realistically, their farewell hug goes like this: "My nose ran on his tie, while ever so cautiously he held me, kind of like a bank robber with sticks of dynamite taped all over his body."

I love reading Danielle Steel and I read this book a long time ago and thought it was pretty "out there", but it was sort of funny. I only reordered it for a friend of mine to read after a conversation about crazy books. I'm not sure what Danielle Steel was thinking when she wrote this one, but it was sort of funny in a twisted sort of way.

Oh, what can you say about Danielle Steel that hasn't already been said before? This book is a bit different from some of her other work, which is refreshing. Hilarious adventure, romance with a clone of a lover - which results in an interesting love triangle.

This was just a little weird! Who would actually have sex with a manufactured klone? Anyway...the klone was amusing enough as a character to make it entertaining, even if far-fetched!

This is a different style for Steel to write. I thought it was funny and a fast afternoon read. A must read for sheer entertainment.

The subtitle, "A High Tech Love Story," need not frighten Steel's loyal fans. More fanciful than technologically snappy, this novel (her 42nd, after The Long Road Home) grafts one scientific wrinkle onto the usual romance. Stunned when her feckless husband declares that their companionable but passionless marriage is over (then sues her for alimony and child support), 41-year-old Stephanie spends the next year improving both her body and her self-respect. During a trip to Paris, she attracts a suitor; Peter Baker is a fellow New Yorker?and everything Stephanie's been hoping for. After a chaste but exhilarating evening together, Stephanie is sure that she'll never see him again, but he tracks her down in the Hamptons and they fall in love. An executive at a company specializing in bionics, Peter has been working on a secret invention. When he travels to California on business, his creation, Paul Klone, turns up at Stephanie's door. Paul is a physical replica of Peter, but the resemblance ends there. Whereas Peter favors Oxford shirts and khakis, Paul is a fan of Versace's most outlandish creations. Although she has been pleased with Peter's lovemaking, Paul's triple back flips during sex leave Stephanie singing the body electric. When Peter becomes jealous of Paul, things get sticky. Although the SF element is minimal (approximately one part Ray Bradbury to 35 parts Steel), Steel's speculative whimsy spices her romantic concoction to produce a light but charming read.

One day, on an impulsive trip to the Left Bank of Paris, Steph steps into one of those cool old French elevators with Peter, a hunk in a button-down Oxford shirt and tasteful khakis. Romance! Ritzy places! In fact, he takes her to the Ritz! Alas, Peter must Louvre her and leave her for a business trip out West.

So Peter sends Paul to keep her company. Paul is a dead ringer for Peter, because he's a kind of clone created by Peter and his clever biotech company. He's called a "klone" to distinguish him from a conventional clone, which is a mere replica of its original--this "klone" may be a physical copy of Peter, but inside he's had a major id upgrade. As always with Steel, the clue is in the character's clothes: from his high-heel gator boots to his zippered zebra jumpsuit, the decidedly non-buttoned-down Paul dresses like a psychedelic kaleidoscope. But when Paul drops that leopard-satin G-string, watch out! It's quadruple flips in flagrante delicto, with our heroine (and, the next morning, her chiropractor) coming out on top. Though Paul deplorably guzzles Chateau d'Yquem by the case and crashes Peter's Jaguar into snow banks, he's actually even more brilliantly empathic with Stephanie's kids than stuffy Peter is.

A wildly funny book. I didn't think she could make me laugh but she did on this one. LOL

After thirteen years of marriage and two kids, Stephanie was devastated when her husband left her for a younger woman. Suddenly she was alone. Then a spur of the moment trip to Paris changed everything.
Peter Bakeer was a handsome high-tech entrepreneur also visiting the city. Stephanie was certain it couldn't possibly work. But much to her amazement, he contacted her when they returned to New York. And Stephanie embarked on a bizarre and hilarious adventure beyond her wildest dreams.
Shy, serous Peter, chairman of bionic enterprose, was uppose to be away on business. Instead, he's standing at her door, wearing satin and rhinestones. Naturally, Stphanie thinks it's a joke-until the truth suddenly dawns:this isn't Peter playing a role. This is his double! Calling himself Paul Klone, this wild uninhibited creature isn't even remotely like Peter except for his identically sexy good looks. The uproaring novel explores the outrageous love triangle that develops between Stephanie, Peter, and the Klone...
