A party-loving sports figure is not an ideal parent in Alexis Brown's eyes. Too bad quarterback Dan Delito is the only parent her niece has. Alexis isn't in a position to raise the baby on her own, which means she needs Dan's help. And that means she'll have to make nice with the unsuitable man. Fine.
Much to Alexis's surprise, however, Dan is good with his daughter. He al

Precious of The Flipping Bookworm
Lovely story and full of pain and heart. I am so amazed on how everything turned out in the story. The story is really nice though I have some issues with the heroine. She's kind of annoying but yeah, I think that is part of what she became in life. That just made the whole story interesting for me.

Alexis Brown ended up with a baby in her life after the mother of the baby/her sister died in a crime. To make ends meet, she had to find the baby's father who is Dan Delito, a famous quarterback and
Linda Barrett has done it again… from heart wrenching to heart warming. This story throws two strangers together for the sake of a baby girl who they both love.

Quarterback Daddy begins with a newspaper clipping of the shooting death of Sherri Brown, who was nine months pregnant. From this heart griping tragedy, we meet Alexis Brown, Sherri’s sister and temporary guardian to Sherri’s newborn, Michelle.

Alexis, whose heart is completely captured by little Michelle, finds that with funds dwindling
Heroine is a newly minted lawyer whose very pregnant sister was murdered on her doorstep three months ago. The baby survived, and now that the heroine has her head on straight, she's going to try to find the baby daddy. The only name she has is the quarterback of the New England Patriots. She goes to confront him, and the conflicts begin. They're handled very well by Barrett (who I think lives in the Houston area). She deals with the hero's anger, and his need to take care of the baby and her he ...more
non era male. Lei è la sorella della madre della bimba, ammazzata da un suo ex, le dice il nome del padre solo mentre sta per morire. Lui è giocatore di football professionista. Lei ha una storia di famiglia orrenda, padre alcolista e abusatore, madre indifferente, lui ha perso la moglie e beve. lei non si fida molto e ci metterà un po' a fidarsi. intanto va a vivere da lui come baby-sitter per la nipotina.

Not bad, she is the aunt of the baby, her sister was killed by an ex-lover. Before dying s

Much to Alexis's surprise, however, Dan is good with his daughter. He also knows he needs help, so he convinces Alexis to act as a nanny until he gets this parenting thing down. And soon their uneas
Very good book. Alexis loved her niece, but needed help. It took her awhile, but she finally contacted the man her sister had named as the father. Dan thought Alexis was just out for money, but when he found out the baby really was his, he stepped up. He was great with Michelle, and loved her immediately. He wanted to be a good father. He talked Alexis into coming to stay with him and taking care of Michelle with him. Alexis was glad to do it, because she loved the baby too. She also wasn't conv ...more
OverallI liked this story but did have some issues with it. I would have liked to see Dan come to terms with moving on to another woman after his wife's death. For a guy who was so distraught he seemed to move into love with no problems. Even though we find out later his process for coming to terms we don't *see* it. Also, while I understand Alexis' reasons for being distrustful, I didn't buy how she became so willing to leave Dan without a true discussion of the issue. Although I did like ther ...more
A Tasty Read Book Reviews
Thought it would be better than it was. I love a good football romance, but i was really hard to get through. It went from one story, to another...was kind of all over the place. And the way he spoke to her and she spoke to him....was too football quarterbacks don't talk the way he was written. It was off. Not my favorite football romance!!
Alexis is struggling to raise her sister's baby. Her sister having been murdered by a previous boyfriend. The only problem is Alexis cannot financially raise Michelle on her salary. The solution contact Michelle's father who doesn't know he's a father. The kink Alexis looks like Dan's deceased wife. Will sparks fly between the two of them?
The story was a bit predictable, but there was some interesting information about football for those who don't really understand the game and also about alcoholism. Not great literature, but certainly far from the worst thing I have ever read.
Trisha Morrison
I enjoyed the light read. Romance with a football spin. Doesn't get much better than that.
