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.

Lots of Fun

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. 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.

OK - I'm officially an SEP addict

This was a fun book, read by a great narrator. In the beginning when I first heard her do Cal's voice, I thought I couldn't listen to that for the entire book, but it grew on me and after awhile he was "Cal". Anna Fields knows when to pause and how and when to apply the right amount of emphasis and emotion. As for the author, I hope SEP enjoys writing them as much as her readers enjoy reading/listening. I also hear she blends her books by taking a side character and making them the focus of another book and then taking a side character in that book etc. I'm hoping to see how old lovers are doing.
