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.

I laughed out loud! sweet and funny!

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

Yes. The banter of the main characters made me laugh out loud. The sub story of the mom and dad of Cal got me all teary.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Nobody's Baby But Mine?

The story of the mom and dad wasn't the main topic but it really was good.

What does Anna Fields bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her male voices are good. sometimes I worry when a female reader is in a book title because of the male roll, but she did a fantastic job.

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

The mom and dad's story is brought into this one and I loved it.

Any additional comments?

This is one of her good ones. I have listened to others I didn't like so well but this was awesome for me!

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.

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!
