May Contain Spoilers
I’ll be honest. The only reason I picked up Twins for the Billionaire is because I like the author’s writing style. That said, I don’t enjoy the billionaire books as much I like reading about cowboys and ranchers, or heck, even the nice, middle-class guy who lives next door. Or the emotionally wrecked rich guy from Tempted by the Cowboy. Eric was so agreeable, so vanilla, that I didn’t find him interesting, or the romance very compelling. When the hero’s mind set is that all problems can be solved by throwing money at them, well, I just don’t find that very engaging.
Sofia is a widowed mother of twins. She desperately needs a job. After moving in with her parents to help with child care duties, she is longing for a sense of independence. She applies for a job at Eric Jenner’s real estate office, even though she lacks the necessary experience. Eric is her childhood friend. Her mother was his family’s maid, and his father gave her father his start in real estate.
When Eric sees a grown up Sofia, he’s intrigued. Having been ditched at the alter, he’s been suffering from a bit of a mid-life crisis. Now that his friends have started families, he’s feeling a bit left out, but he didn’t realize how badly he wanted kids and a wife until a false pregnancy scare with his bride to be. Once he learns that Sofia needs his help, he hires her at an exorbitant salary. When he meets her babies, he knows that this is the family he’s been longing for.
There wasn’t much chemistry between the protagonists, and the extent of the conflict was Sofia suffering from guilt for not being around when the twins suffer from an illness. I wish her anxiety attacks had been used more effectively. I guess that’s my biggest disappointment with Twins for the Billionaire. All of Sofia’s problems magically go away after Eric waves his magic checkbook in the air. Don’t get me wrong. I understand the allure of this fantasy, to have someone fall in love with you and actually take care of you, but it didn’t really work for me here. It all happens so fast that if left me disappointed in the lack of development in the romance. The book is a pleasant read, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t imagine that it will stick with me for very long.

About the book:
Seducing the Single Mom
