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 —

Before I even opened The Knocked Up Plan, I'd like to attest that I think I got knocked up from this cover because PANTY...MELTING...HOT. I was DONE!!! Could a cover make me pregnant?!? Leather, six-pack abs, hand on the belt buckle, and smoldering look...hmm...maybe. I think I did feel some flutters down there from The Knocked Up Plan. I seriously considered 5-staring this story from the thigh-clenching cover alone. Who was I kidding?!? A Lauren Blakely rom-com is a GUARANTEED 5-STAR DELIGHT.

Where do i start with this book? I was dying to get my greedy little hands on this. I waited in the corner, patiently, or not.
I would message Lauren.


But lets face it she's Lauren Blakely you think she needs my help. NOPE.



SO she sends me a message at five pm with the words everyone dies to hear.

Review to follow. 👶🏻🔥

My heart is pregnant with love for The Knocked Up Plan. Dare I say The Knocked Plan is my favorite LB book? Nicole and Ryder are two relationship coaches with commitment issues. Over nine-plus months, these two sexperts learn a thing or two about life, love, and commitment. I thought I knew how this story was going to play out. Nicole wanted a baby via a sperm donor. Ryder wanted to have no-strings-attached baby making sex and help out his hot co-worker with her plan. Total

Oh Lauren Blakely... you hold a special place in my dirty book loving heart... You always deliver (hah!) the perfect blend of witty, charming, and sexy! You took a pregnancy plot and rolled it around in your devilishly smart brain and popped out another uniquely Lauren Blakely winner! Ryder and Nicole are the perfect match for each other. I can't say enough about how much I love reading this book. One of my favorite things was their jobs and how that played such a big role in who they were, how ...more

Gimme gimme gimme - that's me every time a new Lauren Blakely book is on the horizon.

What would happen if How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days met The Back Up Plan.

That is kind of the premise of this friends-to-parents-to-lovers story.

I just loved everything about this story. It is sweet, sexy, funny and a whole lotta hot.

I feel that I could be best friends with Nicole - she is smart, sassy, funny and knows what she wants and will do what she has to get it.

Ahhhh! Lauren Blakely never disappoints. I fall in love with her characters so easily. Her stories always make heart pitter patter, awe and swoon! The Knocked Up Plan was no different.

The premise itself was enough to intrigue me and once I started I couldn't stop (I even fell asleep on my couch around 3 in the morning because I didn't want to pause my reading). Nicole and Ryder shared such amazing chemistry and I enjoyed every bit of their time together.

I’m not even going to pretend that I’m anything but a huge Lauren Blakely fan girl. She just seems understand what I want in a romantic comedy, and she nails it for me every single time. Just when I think she couldn’t possibly top her last book, she comes out with another that totally sweeps me off my feet. Asking me to pick a favorite is like asking me to select the best chocolate chip from the bag. It’s impossible, they’re all wonderful little bits of awesomeness. But sometimes, one

The Knocked Up Plan is a brand new stand-alone by Lauren Blakely and all you can say is that she has knocked it out of the park.
Nicole Powers a single woman living in the city, a radio DJ who gives advice on dating and romance but the one thing missing in her happy life is that of a child. Nicole will do whatever is needed to make that happen and maybe just maybe Ryder Lockhart can be the answer.
Ryder Lockhart is a divorced guy, giving out advice on the radio but with the bitterness of the way

Ms. Blakely never ceases to amaze me. Her talent continues to grow as she sets out to delight and entice her readers. Whether setting the stage for adventure, luring into danger or manipulating the heart and hormones, the name Blakely is synonymous with IRRESISTIBLE. The Knocked Up Plan has a reputation to live up to and it does so with the thrill of the chase and the heat of the attraction while delivering laughs that are punch line gold. I loved that she dreamed up two people that are more ali ...more

1) It's funny and witty
2) Ryder and Nicole are sexperts
3) Baby making scenes are really HOT
4) Cupcakes are life

Oh gosh, when Lauren Blakely writes a book she throws all the expected tropes out the window and gives you a refreshing story.

Sweet Baby Jesus, this book has the number one position in my heart! I don’t think I could live and breath without Lauren Blakely’s books, but damn, this story is her best work so far! Don’t judge me, but I’m completely and utterly in love with it. It’s just so sweet, so fluffy, the only thing I want to do is cuddling it.

1. You can't stop smiling.
2. Your cheeks are flushed (because: holy hotness).

4. You're eagerly scouring the end of the book to confirm certain minor characters will be getting their own book (which they will!).

I just finished this book. OUCH! I AM BURNING! Handle with care... this book is off the charts HOT!

What is a girl to do when the biological clock is ticking, there are no prospects in sight, and you want a baby? Easy! You find a potential donor with all the right assets and you hope he will share some of his "baby batter" with you. Oh, yes! Don't forget to draft a contract with all the rules, like no paternal rights, no STD's, monogamous until the job is done, etc. etc. etc. If you are not using

As usual, Lauren has provided us with yet another wonderful swoonworthy hero in Ryder. He is gorgeous, sexy, smart, funny, sweet and witty and did I mention sexy? He is the host of a radio show that gives dating advice to men, although he is now divorced after finding out his wife was a serial cheater so what he does is rather ironic. He is not looking for love at all.
Nicole works for the same station and has her own show for women similar to Ryder's giving advice on relationships. She is stron

WOW! This book was so charming, sexy, and tender. Ryder is my favorite hero from this author to date, and I seriously want to dedicate my life to this book. You are going to LOVE IT SO MUCH! The pacing is so perfect, I found myself giggling, and I was seriously in awe of the two MC's. Ryder's selflessness and Nicole's strength was so inspiring. Lauren's writing was so sweet and engaging. AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING!

Lauren Blakely tiptoed through my heart and mind and wrote the emotional side of my life and had me in tears. I relate to everything about this story that I said "Did she steal my life?" Lol. But in pure Blakely fashion those tears quickly turned to laughs and is everything you want and need to be "knocked up" by a book. Basically I'm having a book baby. Due Date

➦So I sort of kind of read two books with the same trope this month. The whole "I need a donor for the baby but not an actual relationship with you but we might as well have some hot sex while we're at it" trope. :D


➦Obviously, this one. And the second one was Hot Cop, if anyone cares. I did love them both. They were a bit different, however, not only because of the characters but also because of the... of the... I don't know, VIBENESS, or something.

Ryder, Oh how I loved me some, Ryder! He was just everything in this book and he made my heart melt. Ryder was burnt before and figured this no strings baby making commitment would be the best thing for him. As time progresses he starts to fall for Nicole. The battle he had over his feelings wanted to make me reach in my Kindle and hug him. Watching him let his guard down and fall in love again was amazing. There wasn't any he wouldn't do for Nicole and their Papaya and it was so heartfelt and g ...more

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!!!!!!

She somehow manages to craft her words just right so that I'm as swept away by this unexpected romance just as much as her characters are.
