Nobody's Baby But Mine | [Susan Elizabeth Phillips]

Nobody's Baby But Mine

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.

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.

    "One Of the Best"

    I loved this book. It did take me some time to get into it because the lady that reads it is older and I'm like 20, but it is amazing. I love a book that has a man that is take charge, and has love and as always a baby in the making.

    "Loved this Book!"

    I just about didn't buy this book because I thought the summary made it sound hokey, but I really enjoy SEP's writing so I ordered it and very glad I did...now this is one of my favorites from her collection. SEP has entwined her characters from book to book and I have begun to look forward to continuity of these character's lives. Great Job SEP (and Anna Fields)...AGAIN!!!!

    "Donna"

    This is one of my favorite SEP books .. I love the bantering between the nerdy professor and the jock. The scene with the lucky charm marshmallows just cracks me up.

    "Wonderful story"

    I love every book that this author writes and the narrator is the very best I have ever heard. Great story with wonderful characters fully developed. Had me laughing out loud at times. Wonderful ending.

    "You'll love this one!"

    Once again a fabulous book by SEP narrated by Anna Fields. Story is great, a little much at the end but I enjoyed it. The banter between Blue and Dean is so funny you will laugh out loud (a lot!) Highly recommend.

    "Preachy"

    I mostly enjoy this book but did not appreciate the Christian morality undertones. Just beware if that's not what you are looking for. Otherwise, it is fun to listen to.
