Well, folks, I have yet another rave review for a Therese Beharrie book. Her Twin Baby Secret was just the wholesome and swoony content I've come to expect from her and so much more!

Therese writes characters that I can easily envision being best friends with. Alexa, the protagonist, of Her Twin Baby Secret is one of my favorite female characters of all-time. I just loved this woman so much and there is a lot to love about. She is hardworking, fiercely independent, and not at all afraid to speak up her mind. She grew up in a very competitive family and was constantly pitted against her brother. As a result, their relationship is strained and rather toxic. Things turn for the worse when she loses her dream restaurant location as her brother decides to swoop in and buy it for himself. Though she is crushed by this, she refuses to let it impede her success. I was so proud of Alexa for not giving up. Instead, she channels her rage into a thriving business and is a total boss even when her lousy brother kept constantly trying to come in her way.

Her brother is not entirely useless to her though because he is what eventually leads to Alexa faking a romantic relationship with her rival, Benjamin, who also happens to be her brother's friend. You all know that fake-dating is a trope I'm all over, and I'm happy to say, Therese Beharrie does the trope justice. Benjamin is a soft, compassionate, and lovely man who also happens to be dealing with his fair share of troubles. He has the biggest heart and even when Alexa lashes out at him because of their "rivalry", he remains true to his kind personality. And the way he handles the news of her pregnancy? *swoon* And how she is being treated by her brother? When I say he is husband material, I actually mean it. Therese Beharrie's strength truly is in writing these couples that have real, thoughtful, and deep conversations about their lives, hopes, sorrows, and ambitions. You get to see their connection evolve through these conversations and it's a treat. You also can't help but smile while watching Alexa and Benjamins' interactions, particularly as they slowly move from being mildly annoyed by each other to not being able to stop thinking of each other. It's such a rewarding experience to fall in love with them, and ugh, why can't I find this kind of love!

I wish I could live in one of Therese's books and find the happily-ever-afters that her couples do. Instead, I have to live in the real world where men are not the greatest, but that's beside the point. Anyways, do yourself a favor and read this book. You deserve this pure and romantic gem of a book in your life!
