REVIEW: The Knocked Up Plan by Lauren Blakely


And that’s how you love a woman. With your whole heart.


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?

My Thoughts:

I freaking loved this hilarious, charming, and sexy book! I thought the book was paced well and well written. I enjoyed the heck out of the storyline and the characters. I originally was going to read this only while doing cardio at the gym since it was on my kindle, but then when I got home I could not choose a different book to read. I was so hooked that I HAD to read this one. It was such an easy read and simple, yet you needed to know what was going to happen. I have an unhealthy obsession with pregnant women and babies so this book was truly up my alley.

Nicole. Nicole is a 30 year old single woman working as a columnist/podcaster for Hanky Panky Love. She is tired of waiting to fall in love, and doesn’t think it’s in the cards for her. What she has always wanted was to be a mom and decides she can be a single mom since her own mom was a fantastic single mom. However, as she is looking for donors, she finds she doesn’t like all the what if’s that come with picking a anonymous sperm donor. She then gets the brilliant idea to ask her coworker, Ryder, for help since he basically has the perfect DNA for her. And then the real story begins. I loved how bold and confident Nicole was in going after what she wants. She is so upbeat and excited about this new step in her life. Although, she doesn’t plan on how her feelings slowly start to tangle themselves up with the arrangement she has with Ryder. She starts to wonder what it would be like to have Ryder in her life permanently, and doesn’t know if he wants the same things as her.

Ryder. Ryder is a 32 year old divorced man working as a columnist/podcaster for Hanky Panky Love with Nicole. Ryder is determined to keep his heart locked away from the world after his ex-wife stomped on it. Ryder no longer believes in happily ever after, and his business suffers because of that. The last thing he expects is for Nicole to ask for a life changing favor and going through with it. However, he decides he would rather knock her up the old fashioned way, and later realizes that it was not the best decision due to his growing attachment to Nicole. Ryder has his own favor to ask of Nicole for a new guide to dating series his boss wants him to write. Ryder is sexy and sweet and protective and I absolutely LOVED him. During his time with Nicole, Ryder slowly gets his mojo back when it comes to falling in love and guiding his followers to find their own happily ever after. It was so sweet reading about Ryder’s journey to appreciating love again.

The Relationship. These two together were MAGIC! I loved how they were with each other and how open and honest they were. They were always looking to brighten each other’s day and trying to take each other on what they thought were their ideal dates. They went on dates ranging from trapeze lessons to scavenger hunting and they were so fun to read about. As for sexy times in the bedroom….or wherever…whoa…they were HOT HOT HOT!

I highly recommend this book for those who love: dogs, babies, sexy times, a bold heroine, and a protective hero.
