Dr. Jane Darlington wanted a baby desperately but most of all she wanted her child to be normal. That was why she was looking for a man who was not too smart. She set her sights on Cal Bonner but she will discover that Cal does not follow the typical cliche of jocks.
Nobody’s Baby But Mine is the third book to the series Chicago Stars by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I can’t get enough of this series. With each book I get lost in the plot and don’t want to stop reading until I reach that last page.
Alright so this book was all about Jane wanting a baby. She was a very smart woman who didn’t have a lot of common sense when it came to getting pregnant. When she tricked Cal I didn’t like it as you knew it wasn’t in her personality to be cruel. When Cal finds out he is furious and I thought he had every right to be mad. What I didn’t like was the amount of anger that was inside him because that led to a desire for revenge. The revenge you knew would not only hurt Jane but also hurt Cal. Now there were other times that I didn’t like Cal which was when he was just too superficial. He wanted the young women because he wanted others to believe he wasn’t getting older.
The relationship they had was troubled pretty much right from the start. There is no real love or even like between them. Jane is the one that will discover that true feelings start to unravel first which made it hard for her when Cal was so cruel to her, not physically but verbally. Again I felt that he was justified because she did trick him but after a while it gets overwhelming. I wanted Cal to get over his anger. Things will get better but there will be a twist that stops everything and has Cal realizing that he will lose Jane if he doesn’t understand what he needs to do.
There is again another story that is being told which is Cal’s parents, Jim and Lynn. They had grown apart without really knowing it and there was years of resentment that was between them, but there was love between them. They went through a journey that was similar to Jane and Cal. It took that journey for Jim and Lynn to find their happiness again. I also liked that Lynn didn’t back down.
I will be reading the fourth book next.
