Whether you are a lover of the secret baby trope or not, this is a fantastic anthology full of delicious and unique stories showcasing some of my favorite authors- and some new to me authors that I'm looking forward to learning more about. While not complete novels, each story is still pretty substantial- most around 10-12 chapters, so we still get into it with each of the characters.

While each story has surprise, secret babies and romantic second chances, I loved how each entry highlights what

Time To Feed Your Need for Sweet & Sexy Surprise Baby Romances

Snapshot by Marley Valentine

The author never fails to deliver an emotional love story with passion. This sweet, second chance, surprise baby romance will steal your heart.

Rio and Blake share an instant connection. One unforgettably beautiful night, but fear of the future had Blake running.

They were strangers but they never felt that way. The intensity of their chemistry is palpable. Blake and Rio were drawn to one another the moment t

I normally skip over books that have a collection of short stories since I feel the stories are rushed and the reader doesn't get the whole story. But I honestly enjoyed this collection especially since secret babies are one of my favorites.

There are a handful of authors that I have read their books from this Knocked up Anthology. Most of them are new to me authors and I love discovering new authors and those that are just new to me. This is a great way to get an introduction. There is something for everyone from several different tropes, second chance, enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, etc. The list is long so I haven’t listed them all.

I've enjoyed this anthology so so much.
I adore to have the chance to taste different authors' writing in order to find new to me authors to love.

These stories are all good, someone better than others, and making an average of the votes I gave it five stars.
My favourite were "And One" by Rebecca Jenshak and "Quarterback Keeper" by Lacey Black because jocks are my guilty pleasures.
I also liked "Finding Prince" by Nikki Ash because Natalie and Luke's story is a modern fairy tail, "A Piece Of Us"

Knocked Up is a MUST read collection that will join the ranks of the BIBLIO-ELITE!!!
Knocked Up is a collection of sixteen secret baby stories, offering a variety of tales around the same trope. As with any collection, I enjoyed some of these stories more than I enjoyed others.

Finding Prince Charming by Nikki Ash was a four-star rating. I’ll confess to being a wee bit tentative with this one at first, unsure what it was going to give. Once things started to move and the pieces started to come together, I could not get enough of it. I had so much fun watching everything come toge

Who knew secret baby romance can come in so many shapes, sizes, textures and flavours? Knocked Up Anthology doesn't only have a star studded line up of authors. Every single story delivered swoon and feels with different levels of heat and angst that will just make you fall in love.

My favourite in the collection is Miss B by K. Webster. You can trust her to bring taboo temptations and uber hotness in a surprise baby and well she nailed it. Zane Mullins is the arrogant and gorgeous student who is

The thing about anthologies like this is that when they’re all the same trope, and you love the trope, you know you’re going to enjoy all of the stories! On top of that, you get to discover new authors who write that trope, or revisit the worlds of your favorite authors. I had so much fun reading this book! When I first read Rebecca Jenshak's story, it just made me so happy to be back in her Smart Jock’s world. Seeing the characters that I loved from that series as side characters, had me comple ...more

This was such a fun anthology!! I read most of these authors, so i LOVED getting more from my absolute go-tos. There's something in this anthology for everyone: single dad, older woman/younger man, sports romance and even a rockstar romance!! The feels are just out of this world in every addition, and I just had a blast while reading. I highly recommend this!

My favorite was Kelsey Clayton's part of this (rockstars are so freaking swoony. And they're my kryptonite) and I just loved it so much! My

Knocked up: A Secret Baby Romance Collection by 16 different authors. I have to say I love an " Oops Baby" story so I was truly excited for this book. There were also different authors who I love to read so that was also a plus for me. I do have to say that reading this book from beginning to end, I was fried by the end and was glad it was over. I wish I would have read this book intermittently, a few stories here and there. After reading story after story I was on baby overload. Don't take this ...more

A delightful mix of short surprise baby stories. Although the premiss is the same each book has its own unique spin on it. From best friends to lovers, brothers best friend to a royal there is a real mix of how these stories have been written. A great book to binge if you are a huge fan of surprise pregnancy or alternatively a great assortment for a palet cleanser in between books.

Overall a great anthology.

There are such a wonderful group of authors both new and already known to me in this anthology where the center of the storyline remains the same the individual stories stand strongly on their own and capture our attention each and every time.

My Ruin by Jacob Chance: We have Emmett and Juliet, their age gap romance was sexy and also brought happy tears at times.

This was a fun collection of stories to read. I found several new authors while also enjoying several favorites. I loved that there was such a mixture of friends to lovers, one Night stands, separated and brought back together and so many hot moments. I will say I was definitely on baby overload which is never a bad thing and I liked some stories more than others but overall I just enjoyed this whole book!

This anthology was perfect! I love the secret baby/unexpected pregnancy trope so I loved the 16 stories. Most authors were new to me but I enjoyed every single story, each one had a different aspect but all of them were amazing.

This book has a little bit of everything for everybody! Even though the anthology is surprise baby trope, each novella is completely different. Surprise baby trope is my biggest weakness & favourite so I absolutely loved this anthology! Plus the last novella was just the perfect ending to the book I thought. I was waiting for that kind of read so in my opinion it was fitting that it was the last one! Hours of reading enjoyment with sexy scenes, amazing heroes, amazingly strong females & cute bab ...more

This Anthology contained some new to me authors as well as ones I’d read before. There are 16 stories all based around the premise of a couple being together then splitting up through various reasons and then the consequences / reactions once the baby is born. There is also a large selection of tropes covered within the 16 stories for example, you can enjoy enemies to lovers, second chances, friends to lovers, taboo and MM romance. Many cover fighting for what you want and standing up to parent ...more

This book was provided by IndieSage in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Indie Sage!

Knocked Up is a collection of 16 secret baby stories written by 16 different authors. 

I requested an ARC of Knocked Up because I recognised a few authors who wrote a story for this collection and because I like discovering new authors. I'm really happy that I requested an ARC because I really enjoyed this short story collection. This collection is filled with 16 different stories and althoug

My favorite romance trope is surprise pregnancy/secret baby. So when I saw an anthology of my favorite trope I was excited. I really wanted to like this anthology but at the end, I couldn't. The first 3 novellas were good and then it seemed to go downhill from there. First of all, there were too many teenage pregnancy stories. Like WTF! And there were 2 (?) older woman/younger man novellas that I found disgusting. 18 year old man-child and a 28 year old woman. That's not my cuppa and I wish I ha ...more

I love anthologies. They are the total bomb!!! I preorder. I one-click. If an anthology is released; I buy it. There is no better way to discover a new favorite author. There is no better way to discover different genres. There is no better way to kickstart a new series. When the anthology benefits a charity I buy a hard copy as well as the ebook. If you go to signings, I am the crazy blue haired lady pulling a cart full of anthologies for authors to sign. I LOVE ANTHOLOGIES!!!!! Knocked up was ...more

After reading Finding the beauty in the darkness I was so happy to see Natalie's story in this anthology!
