when the hero gets a boner bcos the heroine is having an internal sonogram, turned on from watching the nurse perform it on her... that’s when you know you need to fucking DIP.

This was an easy-breezy read that flowed from the beginning. If you are searching for a fun romance read, this is a good choice. Stacey Lynn is consistent with her strong characters, and the right amount of tension to elevate the HEA. Fun, enjoyable, and wanting more.
4 stars.

Oh, blimey. I have no idea why I didn't print a review for this back in March when I finished reading it. Needless to say I can't remember all the specific quirks and reasons why it was a solid 4 stars read for me (in my defense I have read 45 books since then).
However I must say, I really do love this author's relaxed writing style and I remember reading this in one sitting and finding it totally satisfying with characters that I also really

Cara Thompson, 24, and Braxton Henley, 28, shared a one night stand at mutual friends’ wedding. The night left them still lusting after each other and with a unique wedding favor.

Told via their dual first person POV, the story started out engaging, and I felt their chemistry. I could also see both sides of their conflicts. Brax was kinda hot and had a lot of potential. I liked his determination to accept the situation, his interest in the baby, his desire for Cara, and to commit.

KNOCKED UP was everything I thought this book would be. Lighter than most, feel good, very little angst and a predictable but lovely ending.

As a first time reader for Stacy Lynn’s, I didn’t have any expectations going in. I liked the blurb a lot and was intrigued by the tattooed, brutish hottie Braxton. Though, not at all brutish, but kind and generous, loving and talented. I’m going to say he’s probably the best part of this whole book! Him and his dog, Lucy to be exact-but more on her later!

I would start by describing this book as a reverse romance. It begins with a one night stand that results in a pregnancy. Cara has never had a one night stand before and panicking, leaves before Braxton wakes up and things get awkward. Things got a whole lot more awkward when she went to his tattoo parlour to tell him she was pregnant and threw up all over his office!

What follows is a sweet, sometimes sexy, ultimately funny getting to know you romance between two fabulous characters.

Our need to be secure in ourselves is a serious thing. If we experience negative feelings when we are young... feeling like we aren't good enough because of no money or drug-addicted parenting... or on the flip side, feeling never enough for parents of wealth and status... the same inner self doubt has been planted. Both people may come from totally different backgrounds...but when push comes to shove...the trigger points are there a

Undying, irrevocable, infatuated, obsessive LOVE for this book!

I want more. I WANT MORE. I. NEED. MORE! Literally, the second I started reading Knocked Up, I knew, just absolutely KNEW, I was going to enjoy it. And by the end, I LOVED it. Fell head-over-heels in love with everything this love story had to offer. Accidental pregnancy, controlling parents, miscommunication, sexy tatted-up hunk of a heartthrob….yeah, you get the idea.

And I’m just putting this out there so that EVERYONE knows….Brax

Knocked Up by Stacey Lynn is one of those cute and entertaining reads that was just fun to read. It was fast paced, sweet, and charming. What’s not to love when you have a hero that steps up to the plate and doesn’t run away from his one night stand and informs him that he will be a father. I honestly love the simplicity of the story as readers get to see a connection unfold as Cara and Braxton discover there is more than just a baby lin

“You might still be pissed when I tell you it was the night before you came into MadInk, but if I’m going to be completely honest, for the last two months, every time I was with a woman, I was honestly just trying to fuck the memory of you out of my head.” <----- Are you kidding me? Could you be more cliched Braxton? and to think that I actually liked you. Did you even wait for a week before you found another woman?

I'm pretty sure I'm in love with Braxton. I loved that he looked like a tattoo bad boy but was big softie at heart. All he really wanted was a family of his own. With so many books where the Hero is afraid to commit, it's wonderful to find the ones who want the whole package.

Braxton is the owner of several tattoo parlors. He had an addict for a mom and dad that never stuck around. He had a role model in his life that helped him grow into a better man than his parents or his background.

Cara and Braxton hook up after their bffs (book one which of course I didn't read) get married and then along comes a baby. She has major trust issues, but Braxton is patient and works through them all.

Side note - Cover art people and I guess the author's fault too...Braxton is tatted up from the neck down not all that blank skin shown on the cover.

I really enjoyed Fake Wife earlier this year, so I was happy to try this one. I do like this author's voice, although Knocked Up, in my opinion, is  not as good as the first book. In this one we have Braxton and Cara, who didn't know one another, and hooked up for a one night stand at a wedding. Six weeks later, Cara finds out she is pregnant. She immediately tracks down Braxton (thank goodness, I hate it when heroines keep the pregnancy a secret from the father) and tells him the news. Braxton ...more

Smart, sassy, charming, clever, and ALWAYS entertaining, Stacey Lynn delivers another KNOCK OUT romance with her latest romance, KNOCKED UP! Accidental pregnancy romances seem to be all the rage nowadays, but Ms. Lynn brought a little extra to Braxton and Cara’s love story. Most of the time, the hero is so quick to run away from an announcement like this, but he eventually finds his way to the love of

With a premise like this (knocked up by a one night stand who is also your best friend's husband's friend) you'd think there'd be plenty of story and angst without having to add the extra drama.

There was such pointless drama and angst and misunderstandings. I just wish there was an adult romance where we didn’t have to have any of these things. Or if it’s there at least it’s reasonable and they respond maturely.

"Heart. Melt. Puddle. Floor."

That's exactly how I felt reading this heartwarming, amusing, sexy story. Several things attracted me to this story and convinced me to read it. The cover is awesome, but it doesn't match the story, cuz Braxton is covered in tattoos, but it did get my attention. And the synopsis, cuz Braxton is covered in tattoos, that got my attention too. Yeah, I love hot guys with tattoos...sigh. And don't worry, the author does such an excellent job of describing Braxton that

This was a cute read with little angst. Enjoyable and quick to read without a deep development of characters which some things in the story were mentioned but not followed through completely. Besides that, overall I liked the story and especially Braxton!

Braxton and Cara are the best friends of the two ,sin characters from the first Crazy Love book. We met them there and what was in theory a meaningless no strings attached hookup, turns into something much more complicated when Cara discovers she is pregnant. Braxton is all in for the strings that news brings since he has always wanted a family. Cara is perplexed by his willingness to be a dad. Shouldn’t someone that sexy and with all those tattoos

2.5-2.75 stars. This book was not really my cup of tea. This is Braxton and Cara's story. Braxton, a rich tattoo artist and business owner, meets Cara, a poor artist, when their best friends get married. At the wedding, they find they really like each other and have a connection, so they spend a hot night together. But Cara pulls a runner, because she is not very experienced, embarrassed and unsure how to act the morning after. Braxton is mad. He wanted more from Cara, but thinks she ended up be ...more

If you’re looking for a sweet and easy read, one that flows well and has just the right amount tension, then KNOCKED UP is for you. It has an enjoyable story, likable and honest main characters, a believable conflict, a sweet resolution and finally, a HEA for Braxton and Cara.

However, I do feel it’s important to point out that the man on the cover looks nothing like Braxton should, who is described as having tattoos that cover his entire torso and arms, from his neck to his knuckles. It’s probab

Knocked Up by Stacey Lynn was a fun read with great characters and an easy story to get lost in. Braxton turned his life around and is now a successful businessman running tattoo parlors. But he is ready for more. But when he gave in and had some fun at his best-friend’s wedding with the maid-of-honor, he did not expect the consequences. But he is ready to be all in.

Cara is doing what she wants and ready to live her life her way. The last thing she ever expected was to end up pregnant after one

I’m reviewing this on 4/14 and it’s not due out until June so let’s keep our fingers crossed that they fix some of the plot holes prior to actual release.

First...the cover model. The guy is hot and it’s a cute picture but that gut is NOT Braxton. Braxton is described as having black hair, olive skin and is covered neck to knuckles in art department epic failure on that one.

Second....let’s talk about Lucy. I know it’s just a fictional dog
I really quite liked this romance but didn't expect to enjoy it quite so much. Although the premise isn't unique (one night stand leading to pregnancy), I think that the way this was written is what I appreciated about it. I adored Braxton - he was the stand out of this novel. It's impossible not like this character - he's a stand-up guy but with an edge, a complexity. The guy from the wrong side of the tracks falls in love with a wealthy woman with a heart trope is well done here. I really enjo ...more

Review by Jen Skewes

I loved this book. From the moment I started reading it I was completely sucked in. I think it may have something to do with Braxton, the sexy tattoed hero of this story. But this book is the reason why I have always loved Stacey Lynn’s writing. It’s the fun, sweet moments that are filled with witty banter. The dynamic between two characters who seem to be complete opposites, but growing up on opposite sides of the tracks. A fun, sweet, beautiful story that will make y

Loved this book!!! Braxton and Cara’s story was so amazing. They both had things they were trying to over come. I loved how independent and strong Cara is and how she would love the support of Braxton but at the same time is ready to take on everything by herself. And Braxton’s total acceptance and joy over starting a family is sweet.

Good girl Cara has a one night stand with the hot groomsman at her best friends wedding. Six weeks later she finds out she’s pregnant.

Braxton, who runs the most popular tattoo studio in Portland, is shocked when straight laced Cara shows up in his studio. He’s even more shocked when he finds out he’s going to be a dad.
