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.
Lauren Blakely is my go to for fun and sexy romances with great characters. The Knocked Up Plan is classic Blakely with a twist. She’s done the fake engagement before where the friends end up together. Now she’s taking a baby plot and added her own style to it.
Co-workers Nicole and Ryder have a great friendship where they are both on air radio personalities that talk about sex, love and relationships. They both have hang-ups about the love part. He doesn’t believe in it anymore after his marriage ended after his wife cheated on him. She thinks she is broken and will never have love in the romantic sense.
Nicole wants the white picket fence but she doesn’t need or want the prince Charming to go with it. She’s ready for a baby, but the sperm banks choices are a little cold. She finds all the things she wants in a donor within her work buddy Ryder. There’s an attraction between them for sure but they’ve never acted on it.
Nicole pitches the idea of Ryder making nightly deposits into her oven with the promise of no strings attached. Ryder figures he is helping out a friend and agrees. Plus there is the bonus of having sex with his gorgeous co-work and Ping Pong partner. (Insert ball jokes here)
Blakely takes Nicole and Ryder on a journey from two people not wanting or believing in love to them finding what they thought they didn’t want/need in each other. The Knocked Up Plan is a wildly funny, romantic comedy about two people find loving in an everyday place but with some unexpected twists and turns of the heart. I really enjoyed reading Nicole and Ryder’s story.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
