"Outrageous, heartwarming, wonderfully sensual...I loved it!"
--Jayne Anne Krentz

"For sheer fun, nobody beats Nobody's Baby But Mine."
--Detroit Free Press

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune writes, "Next to Tracy and Hepburn, no one does romantic comedy better than Susan Elizabeth Phillips." For proof, you need to look no further than Nobody's Baby But Mine. This classic comic love story from perennial New York Times bestseller Phillips unites a beautiful, brainy scientist desperate to be a mom with a brawny, smoking hot jock who, though handsome enough to father her child, is nowhere near as stupid as she wants her baby's daddy to be. Emily Giffin, Jane Green, and Rachel Gibson fans take note: when it comes to delivering delightfully funny, supremely sexy contemporary women's fiction, nobody but nobody is better than Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

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.
