On Jane Darlington's 34th birthday, she realizes that one thing is missing from her life, a baby. Although she desperately wants a baby, she doesn't want a husband. After some research she finds the perfect "sperm donor", Cal Bonner, the aging quarterback for the Chicago Chiefs. The reason Cal is picked is because he is presumed to be "a dumb hillbilly". After being set up as Cal's 36th "birthday present", Jane finds herself pregnant. She is thrilled. Unfortunately, (or fortunately??) Cal finds out about it. Being no dummy, he doesn't want his child to be raised without a father so he forces Jane to marry him (planning a convient divorce after the baby is born).
After the quickie marriage, Jane and Cal leave for North Carolina to spend 3 months. There they fight a lot and finally fall in love, although without a lot of snags.
When I first started this book I didn't like Jane and Cal. Dowdy Jane seemed too straight laced and boring and Cal seemed like a jerk. Throughout the book I began to love the couple as I did Rachel and Gabe in Dream A Little Dream. With the second book, this book also had a secondary story that was wonderful. Cal's parents Lynn and Jim are having problems and finally realize that, although they were forced into marriage at a very young age, they have a true love for eachother. I hope that Kevin is in a book sometime in the future. I really liked the guy.
If you're a fan of Susan Elizabeth Phillips (or if you're not become one!) this book is a must read.
I mean the set up in many romance books requires a stretch of imagination, and is sometimes downright bizarre, but can any beat this for offending anyone with any sense of right and wrong?
Chauvinistic Footballers ask Slutty Waitress to find a classy hooker to be their team mate's birthday present. Slutty Waitress goes to her parent's home, stumbles round their next door neighbour's place looking for decent coffee. Next door neighbour is Genius Professor who happens to be crying her eyes out over the fact she wants a baby. TV gets turned on showing an interview with Birthday Footballer. Genius Professor says she wants to find someone like Dumb Footballer to father her child because she doesn't want her baby to have two geniuses as parents and grow up to suffer the way she did (hand me the tissues now!). Slutty Waitress gets Genius Professor to dress up and act as a Hooker to seduce Dumb Footballer so she can get impregnated by him. Although Dumb Footballer (not so Dumb after all), knows something is up and Genius Professor is not actually a Hooker, he sleeps with her anyway. And it gets better .... Genius Professor finds out that she didn't get pregnant after all so she turns up at Dumb Footballer's hotel room and they go a second round. To cut a long story short, she ends up pregnant this time, he finds out and is mad (don't blame him), forces her to marry him and be mean to his parents so they don't get attached to her. He is also ridiculously ageist, telling her to lie about her age and annoyed with the fact she wears glasses.
You may well wonder what the hell came over me to get me to even read this far?
I just had to find out how this book is voted number #5 in the `Best Contemporary Romance Ever' list (seriously, nearly 400 people voted for this book!!!!!!) and #3 in `Sports Romances' list.
And the end was just as horrendous as the beginning.
