Title: The Knocked Up Plan
Author: Lauren Blakely
Genre: Contemporary Romance
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?
If you need me I’ll just be over here swooning!!
I know when I pick up a Lauren Blakely book I am in for a fun rom-com with a lot of heart. The Knocked Up Plan was no different! The idea for this book was so original. Nicole wants a baby…she wants a baby so bad she is willing to go it alone. She has accepted single-motherhood and is perfectly happy taking the road less traveled to get where she wants. But there is still the small requirement of the baby batter. When Nicole doesn’t fall in love with any of the donors available she decides what can be wrong about asking her delicious co-worker to provide a sample. Both of the MC’s have an aversion to relationships, so nothing can go wrong right?? Wrong.
The Knocked Up Plan is so witty and hilarious. Blakely’s writing does it again. The baby idea driving this whole book was just so original, I was so excited to read something a little out of the box and this definitely didn’t let me down (but really when has Blakely ever let me down?!?). This book really had such a great flow to it. Not to mention the dynamic between Nicole and Ryder was phenomenal. Nicole was such a independent female which I enjoyed oh so much! And Ryder, MMMMMMM, totally swoon worthy, and a little damaged from a past relationship (which you know I’m a sucker for) was a great counter to Nicole.
I read this whole book in one sitting…if that doesn’t prove how much I loved it I don’t know what else will. There were so many laughs and tender moments it was just hard not to fall in love!
