Rate 4.5 stars

Back Cover
The Plan

Genius physics professor Dr. Jane Darlington desperately wants a baby. But finding a father won't be easy. Jane's super-intelligence made her feel like a freak when she was growing up, and she's determined to spare her own child that suffering. Which means she must find someone very special to father her child. Someone very…well…stupid.
The Target
Cal Bonner, the Chicago Stars legendary quarterback, seems like the perfect choice. But his champion good looks and down-home ways are deceiving. Dr. Jane learns too late that this good ol' boy is a lot smarter than he lets on -- and he's not about to be used and abandoned by a brainy, baby-mad schemer.
The Explosion
A brilliant, lonely woman who dreams only of motherhood…A take-no-prisoners tough guy who'll settle for nothing less than surrender…Can passion and physical attraction propel two strong-willed yet vulnerable people to a totally unexpected love?

My Thoughts

I really liked this book! I enjoy Susan Elizabeth Phillips a lot! She writes the funnest, flawed people. Her characters have flaws, and insecurities as well as humor and integrity. I enjoyed the banter between Jane and Cal regarding the various ways they were going to murder each other. I got a kick out of the Lucky Charms and totally cringed when she finally decided to let him see her naked. Annie was fun, but I think I like Tanta Lulu (from Sandra Hill's Cajun Series) better. I liked the side story about Jim and Lynn as well. I will enjoy reading more, and I think some of these characters show up in later books. I dig Kevin Tucker! Hubba Hubba!!

I give it a 4.5 stars cuz I couldn't decide between a 4 and 5!
