It must have hurt for protagonist to learn targeted sperm donor not typical dumb jock or that quarterback had brain cramp learning physics.
The secondary romance sub-plot of his parents's recent martial spat just as interesting

The male character is a terrible, awful person. Not possible to sympathize or identify with him as he tortures the heroine in revenge. There is no humor, unless you really think a bunch of jocks buying a hooker for their friend for his birthday is funny. Couldn't finish this.

Yes, this is a good read. Has an up then down then up type of romance plus an added secondary romance (possibly a Susan Elizabeth Philips writing style?)
I know very little about football, phew, was able to weather that bit out and get the feel for the entertaining supporting characters. The grandmother (Calvin's side) is a nice find.
If you intend to read others in this series, please note, there will be personal bits of these characters in the other novels.

Very entertaining though a bit far fetched to start it off. Great rainy day read!

I enjoyed reading this book. It had me smiling, laughing and some touching moments. Another great read from this author.

I found "Nobody's Baby but Mine" on the Staff recommendation shelf at the library and had never heard of the author (but I explore one new author per month so she was it). From the moment I opened the book, I was hooked and had some major laugh-out-loud moments. This novel would make a terrific date movie and I am truly looking foward to reading more of Phillips. Dr. Jane is a brilliant PHD who tricks a NFL star (but dumb) "warrior" to impregnate her figuring once the deed was done, she would never see him again thereby avoiding messy relationships. You can also expect some really touching moments and yes, I'll admit it, the final chapters made me cry. Bravo, Ms. Phillips!

This book actually made me laugh out loud at one point while reading it. It was a surprise and refreshing. It made me want to read the rest of Susan Elizabeth Phillips' books.

I was actually surprised at how good of a book this was: it had intelligence, comedy, heart... It was the first few chapters that presented all the troubles with their horrible writing. I went to put the book down several times before page 100 (landmark where I make these decisions) but I felt compelled to continue due to an interesting premise and, more accurately, the self-imposed pressure to read a book purchased for me by a family member. It did turn: by page 150, I was smiling; by page 200, I had giggled a few times and by page 300, I didn't want to put it down. All of the supporting characters were important and well-developed, complete figures that made the book and lent themselves to understanding the main characters. However, I think the reason I found this book on a clearance table is the terrible beginning, which was not well thought out or well written - too many people would give up. If you have a chance, keep going: the last 200 pages are quite crisp and what one should expect from the genre.
