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.

    Realistic, imperfect, quirky characters. What a LOL treat in a romance. Plan to purchase more from S.E.P. ASAP!

    "Love this story...like all of the rest by SEP"
    Would you listen to Nobody's Baby But Mine again? Why?

    Yes-it is one of my favorites!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Annie (grandma-I think that was her name)-nothing gets past her.


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

    Yes-exceptional as all of the others. One of the best narrators ever!


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

    Yes-but you will have to listen for yourself.

    "Not Bad"

    It was an OK read. The story line is pretty fantastic and predictable. The main characters are likeable, My favorite character was the grandmother. I liked the secondary story (the parents of the groom) much better than the main plot. I got this book bcs my cousin actually hunted for her baby's father in a similar fashion as the female character did in this book. Similar... This book could have been shorter.

    "Trying to get through this silly book"
    Which character ??? as performed by Anna Fields ??? was your favorite?

    I love Anna Fields narrations. She's great. RIP I miss her spot on characterization and she does a good job on this too. If it wasn't for her performance I probably wouldn't have listened this far.


    Any additional comments?

    The premise of this book is so silly. I know that SEP had written this type of story before and made it work but this one is painfully stupid so far. Why is she following him around like a patsy and letting him push her around. Please, he can't do damage to her without damaging himself too. I'm almost done with the first half but I will not finish it if it stays this stupid. If he doesn't want to be around her so much then why take her home with his family in the first place. Go to some other place and stay away from each other for a fake honeymoon. And why is she agreeing to go along with it just to be treated badly all day every day. Stupid. She can take care of herself. Catch the next thing smoking back home and go on with your life. Accept that you have to share the kid and move on!

    Story
    "Favorite So Far"

    Nobody’s Baby But Mine is the 3rd book in the Chicago Stars series and I have to say it is my favorite so far. I know I said that in the review of book 2 but this series seems to keep getting better. I enjoyed books 1 and 2 but book 3 was not only a great story but also really funny. Although Jane did get on my nerves a few times with her poor me attitude when she was the one that really put herself into that situation; but other than those 4 or 5 times Jane and Cal were both great leads for this book. The story was a little predictable and corny at times but most chick lit is and that’s why we love it. Anna Fields did a fantastic job at narrating this book and I cannot wait to hear her read the rest of the Chicago Stars series. I hope this series keeps getting better and better.

    "Disappointing"

    I read and really liked three other books by this author, but this one was not good. This book was pretty much the same story line as This Heart of Mine, except with a poor story line and very unlikely conflict elements. If you want to read good books by this author, I would recommend sticking to Natural Born Charmer or Match Me if You Can - much better stories and characters. I do like the way that the same characters keep showing up in other stories though, so if you want to know the whole sequence of events, this will give you a little back story on Kevin Tucker.

    "Horrible!"

    OMG! this is a horrible book. It is full of emotional and physical abuse. Can't find anything positive to say. Wish I hadn't wasted a credit on this trash!

    "Physicist Call Girl?"

    I listened to this one while I was at work, and I was impressed at how much research SEP must have had to do to portray Jane the scientist. Another great book here with the awesome Anna Fields narrating. Funny at times, and as always SEP delivers a great love story.
