Publisher's Summary

"When I read a Tiffany L. Warren novel I know I'm going to get two things - a riveting story and a faith boost!" (ReShonda Tate Billingsley) 

All of Chenille Abrams' dreams came true the day she married NFL star Brayden Carpenter. He's the down-to-earth, loving, and protective man she never thought she'd find. And with her own successful career, Chenille plans to be more than just a famous athlete's wife. She's determined to balance work, marriage, and motherhood, as the couple awaits their first child....

Until their son is born with a crippling heart ailment. Until a devastated Brayden starts putting his career above everything else. And when tragedy strikes, Chenille struggles to find a reason to go on - as Brayden takes comfort from anywhere but home....

Little by little, Chenille picks up the pieces as she and Brayden try to make their marriage work once more. But when he fathers a baby that the mother can't keep, will this be the final blow? Or can they find a way past betrayal into unexpected hope - to at last have a future worth everything?

Pretty Good.

It felt rushed in some areas. And too detailed in others. I guess the book did its job. I got emotionally involved. I didn't care for the main character.

one thing I'm tiring of in black literature is the interracial, borderline self hate dynamic. Black characters rarely appear on works of Caucasian authors. There seems a need on the end of African American story tellers to write in a racial element.

What more would really take issue with her son choosing a woman that looks like her. That element made no sense to me. That felt unnecessary and over the top to me. There's not a mother of a black athelete in American history that would take issue with her black son choosing a black wife.

Anymore than there would be a mother of a white athelete who took issue with her son choosing a white wife. Something about that didn't sit well with me

Better than expected!

Better than expected! Good storyline. I felt the ending seemed a tad bit rushed but it all fell into place good.

Not for Many

This book held my attention for the last 30 minutes and even then I believed it could have been executed better. The character development was horrible along with the drawn-out storyline. I really did try to give this book a fair chance for my book club but in the end, I was just so angry I wasted a credit on this book that I didn't know what to do. The main character was problematic, pessimistic, and all around annoying and the descriptions of the events that took place throughout the book were so far fetched it made it hard to enjoy. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone honestly.

Story Doesn’t match the title

I can’t stand the main character. Don’t even understand why the guy likes her. I’m finally on Chapter 50. And still don’t know why the title is called the other baby. I guess I was looking for a more drama filled novel. 🤷🏽‍♀️ it’s what I was in the mood for.
