Publisher's Summary

Jane Darlington is a genius at physics, but there's one problem she can't solve. She yearns for a child, but wants to spare it the pain of growing up as...well, a nerd. And surely any child of Jane's would be a little too brainy for the playground set.

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.

    "Inconsistent and far fetched"

    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.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed, cried, and could hardly wait for the happy ending.

    Story
    "I often pick a book that someone has reccommended."
    What made the experience of listening to Nobody's Baby But Mine the most enjoyable?

    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!


    What about Anna Fields’s performance did you like?

    She was outstanding.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A compelling story about true love that happened by accident.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to read another book by Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

    "Great listen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Anna Fields – was your favorite?

    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.

    "Ok, but not super"
    Would you try another book from Susan Elizabeth Phillips and/or Anna Fields?

    No. I just couldn't get into the characters enough to bother using another credit. I didn't care for Fields male voices either.


    What was most disappointing about Susan Elizabeth Phillips’s story?

    Silly, superficial characters that I couldn't enjoy.


    Any additional comments?

    Silly plot line that I just couldn't get into. The character development just didn't make me finish the book liking the characters.

    Story
    "Another Susan Elizabeth Phillips Classic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because I can listen to it over and over again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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!


    Have you listened to any of Anna Fields’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Cal's mom tells his dad how he made her feel when he didn't acknowledge her as his wife...


    Any additional comments?

    Any of SEP's books stand alone but they are all fabulous...this is in my top 2 or 3, no...top 2!

    "Great SEP story as usual!"

    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.
