There are three little words most guys don’t want to hear on the first date.
Not those…I mean these… “knock me up.”
This single gal has had enough of the games, the BS and the endless chase. I know what I want most, and it’s not true love. It’s a bun in the oven, and I’m not afraid to hit up my sex-on-a-stick co-worker to do the job. Ryder is gorgeous, witty and charming — and he’s also a notorious commitment-phobe. That makes him the perfect candidate to make a deposit in the bank of me.
I won’t fall for him, he won’t fall for me, and there’s no way baby will make three.
There are four words every guy wants to hear on the first date — “your place or mine?”
When my hot-as-sin co-worker makes me a no-strings-attached offer that involves her place, my place, any place — as well as any position — I can’t refuse. Besides, I’ve got my own reasons to take her up on her deal even with her one BIG condition.
There’s no way I’ll want more from one woman than any position, any where, any night? Except . . . what if I do?
Note: Be prepared to swoon and fan yourself from the heat! This full-length standalone contains lots of hot baby-making s-e-x, happy tears, naughty jokes and a hot, swoonworthy hero you will fall madly in love with.
Bundle of Joy to read
Ryder Lockhart and Nicole Powers
The Knocked Up Plan by Lauren Blakely
Lauren has delivered another bundle of joy for her readers. The Knocked Up Plan is a fun read that left this reader with a warm heart and a need to have a tissue box handy. This is not a sappy chick flick kind of book but there are moments when I just couldn’t help feeling sad for Nicole. I must also tell you I spent much of the time laughing. There were also moments when you wanted to smack them upside the head and say WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!!!!!!
This is the first book that I have shared the plot to and read some of the lines out loud to my husband. I would be sitting there chuckling and he would ask what was so funny and I would read the passage. Let me tell you he just looked at me with a confused look on his face and didn’t even crack a smile. He has no clue why I continue to read these books (shhhh being male and all he doesn’t understand the NEED to read).
We get to meet Nicole when she is going to tell her friends she has decided to have a child. It is the one thing she wants more than anything and she is going to do it on her own. She works for Hanky Panky Love (hahaha love this name), the dating division of media company. She writes a column and has a radio show on giving advice to women about sex and dating.
Ryder Lockhart works for the same company any Nicole and they have been friends for the year he has worked there. Ryder does the same thing as Nicole only for men. He was married but is not divorced. His ex-wife had many affairs and was a sex addict. We get to learn how he found out and what went through his head during that time. Ryder is the type of man we all wish we can find. He takes his vows seriously so he felt very betrayed when he found out about her cheating. Divorce was his only option.
Nicole believe she is broken because she has not found love and believes she isn’t capable of feeling that way for a man. Ryder doesn’t want to put his heart on the line again because he doesn’t want to get hurt. What happens when these two decide to work together to reach a common goal? You are going to have to read to find out.
As a reader you almost dread picking up a romance book because they are all the same—find love; loose love; make up. Not in Lauren books. Her writing style is fun and flow seamlessly. It is fun to read text conversations between the characters; get to read what is going on in the character’s head or read their top 5 lists to decide how to proceed next. A lot of time the characters are on the same page and don’t even know it. The complexity of the story line seems to flow naturally through the pages and keeps the reader interested.
This book had all the feels!! I swooned! I laughed, and I fanned myself! The Knocked Up Plan is hot and romantic and funny! Ryder is fantastic and I’m jealous Nicole gets to have him! This book is fabulous!
Pure fun!! That is a Lauren Blakely book. I really do not know how many different ways that I can say "I Loved The Knocked Up Plan"! Excellent writing, well-developed characters, new and recurring characters that you just totally enjoying reading about. A woman who does not think that she is capable of love wants a baby. So she asks her very handsome coworker who possesses many many other perfect characteristics to be her baby daddy. Her coworker asks a favor of her as well. He
has a work project so together they agree to help each other out. Here comes the fun. Lots and lots of fun. Like all Lauren Blakely books, you have super swoon-worthy guys, strong yet feminine women who together make for a great story and a great escape into Lauren's world. Totally recommend The Knocked Up Plan by Lauren Blakely. I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
