This book was entertaining and great to listen to. This book is the first in the "Chicago Stars" series. I listened to them out of order but each story can stand on its own. It was good however, to where it all started. Phoebe is such full of life yet lacks confidence due to her bad history with men. I think many women can relate in one way or another with her story. This was a heartwarming enchanting story and I would list it as one of my favorites by this author.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips is wise and wonderful and this is the best of her darn near perfect books.

Light, fun, a good "beach book" but with an intriguing story line and great characters. A feel good light read that had me laughing out loud..Show More ». A story about a nerdy female professor looking for a dumb man to father her baby so he/she won't grow up to be nerdy like she was. A balancing of the genes so to speak. The main characters Jane (the professor) and Cal (the football jock) have a wild ride from start to finish. Totally enjoyable and well read. A good break from some of the heavier books.

This by far was one of my favorite Chicago Stars books – the other being No Baby But Mine. I loved the 2 main characters in this book .. they have great chemistry together .. SEP makes you cry and laugh all in this one books.
Anna Field's narration is superb and her death is a great lose. There were several recording issues – lines being repeated.
I have since listen to ALL the Chicago Stars books – have enjoyed them all but they do tend to follow a similar story line.
I don't know what prompted me to download this audiobook and start listening to it. Maybe I was in a funk and wanted something light to cheer me up? O..Show More »r maybe it was recommended on one of Audible's editors' lists? It's not the kind of book I go for. It's fluffy and sweet - a predictable romantic comedy with a slightly annoying protagonist and a leading man whose name is "Heath Champion". Heath Champion. Seriously?! But despite all of this, and despite a female narrator who over reaches trying to capture the bravado of some of the male characters in the story, I really enjoyed the book. Once I was in, I was hooked. It was a great listen - that perfect romantic comedy that leaves you feeling cheered up and satisfied.

The characters are flawed and have issues and that makes them more realistic. As in all of SEP books, there is fun and snappy dialog and good sexual chemistry. The sex scenes are steamy and fun without being unnecessarily graphic like a lot of authors are doing today. As I have noted with some other SEP books, there is a primary couple, but also a love story for a secondary couple. I think April Fields does a GREAT job narrating and changing voices. She even does a fine job singing a little in this one!
With the inevitable comparison to Anna Field's narrations of SEP's books, Nicole Poole was always going to have a tough time measuring up. She did an ..Show More »ok job overall but her narration at times sounded robotic and uninterested. Her dialogue was passable but lacked the inherent sparkle of SEP's characters that Anna Fields was so effortlessly able to mirror.
It's interesting that for each new book after the loss of Anna Fields/Kate Fleming, the publisher has gone with a different narrator... For me, I can't help thinking (and have done for a while) that Amanda Ronconi would be a good fit for SEP...
As for the story, I enjoyed it. I will probably go back and read the print version at some point rather than re-listen to the audio. (I've re-listened to the audio versions of Anna Fields SEP narrations numerous times!)
