So she sets out to find a special man to father her child, someone without too much gray-matter between his ears: in short, a big, strong dope. Cal Bonner, legendary pro quarterback, seems to fit the bill. But there's something Dr. Jane hasn't counted on: he's no dumb jock. And he's not about to get used and abused by a baby-mad schemer.

"A sensual, heartwarming story." (Library Journal)
this book is very similar to others by this sane author, do it's a little repetitive. overall it's a good & funny story.
The characters develop in an inconsistent way and you just can't buy the pregnancy, marriage, and family stuff. Hope the next one is better.
Near the top of my favorites list
Jane. She is a strong, smart woman who goes after what she wants.
Yes. She is an excellent narrator and brings her characters to life.
Laughed, cried, and could hardly wait for the happy ending.
Enjoyed the whole series of Bonner brother books.
Everything was perfect. The story grew at a pace that kept you wanting more. The performance was outstanding, reading each character without flaw. And the Storyline was somewhat predictable yet never quite sure hos she was going to get you there!
She was outstanding.
A compelling story about true love that happened by accident.
I can't wait to read another book by Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
Absolutely! This was my very first SEP listen, and boy, did it hook me. I wish that I had listened to the Heaven Texas series in order, but it's not the end of the world, if you don't. Each book stands alone. Since listening to this book, I have listened to almost all of SEP's other titles. This one stands out as one of my favs. If you've never read SEP, I'd say her biggest strength is that she doesn't churn out your standard love stories. There are always surprises and bumps, as well as great side plots, along the way.
Anna fields is AMAZING! I found myself in tears when I learned of her passing. She was a superb voice actor and I find myself purchasing stories just because she is the narrator.
No. I just couldn't get into the characters enough to bother using another credit. I didn't care for Fields male voices either.
Silly, superficial characters that I couldn't enjoy.
Silly plot line that I just couldn't get into. The character development just didn't make me finish the book liking the characters.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips is my go to for fun. Harry Potter - just because. Loved the Magic of Tidying Up and Shakespeare
Yes, because I can listen to it over and over again.
Jane Darlington and probably Cal's grandmother. But I love Cal's mother too. They are all strong women who put their own sense of self first. I want to be one of SEP's characters in my next life!
Anna Fields, may she rest in peace, is still one of the top 3 narrators in the world of Audible Fiction. Her characterization and intonation is consistent and flawless. I will miss her forever.
When Cal's mom tells his dad how he made her feel when he didn't acknowledge her as his wife...
Any of SEP's books stand alone but they are all fabulous...this is in my top 2 or 3, no...top 2!
Delivers a great story. The narration was flat for me. I though she sounded too old for the part. I still recommend the book, I will listen again and again.
