Now available on all retailers! Get your copy delivered now!

From #1 NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely, comes a new and sexy romance…THE KNOCKED UP PLAN! A standalone romance told in dual POV, THE KNOCKED UP PLAN is about all of the fun, hotness, and heartfelt emotions that come when a single woman asks her gorgeous, jaded, sworn-to-be-single-forever good friend to get one particular job done. What happens next when he agrees to provide the bun for her oven are lots of hot sexy times and heartfelt moments.

 My musings…

5 Papaya CROWNS

5 Reasons you should read every single book Lauren Blakely publishes:

  1. Her heroes are to die for. Sexy and swoony, these men have a way with words and skills in the bedroom.
  2. Her heroines are often independent forces.  None of her ladies need man.  They will take a man, but they most certainly don’t need one.
  3. Her stories are always light and fun, perfect for a sunny beach day or afternoon on the deck.
  4. Her writing is always on point; it is witty, funny, and entertaining.
  5. The woman can write a steamy sex scene like few can, and with how fast she writes, it still always seems fresh and original.

Lauren Blakely continues to deliver romantic comedy gold. With the perfect balance of steamy heroes, lovable heroines, and comedy. She hits gold every time.

Ryder and Nicole are a fantastic couple. Starting as co-workers, these two bypass that awkward getting to know each other stage.  They have a pre-established comfort with each other that translates to great conversation and bantering between the two.  This chemistry transfers to the bedroom as soon as they agree to get knocked up.  As always, the physical intimacy between the two is off the charts and sets the sheets on fire. As the story develops,though, these two co-workers turned friends begin to become much more, and watching them fall in love is sweet.

The Knocked Up Plan is the comedic, romantic, and steamy, combining to create a true romance. Lauren Blakely takes the reader on the journey with the couple.  We get to see the transition through each stage of their relationship, and as we do, readers are helpless to fall in love with Ryder and Nicole.  Readers will also enjoy that she doesn’t follow the traditional baby romance plot-line, and they will love how she resolves their romance and ends to the story. It really is perfect.

Lauren Blakely never disappoints, and The Knocked Up Plan falls into the category of must reads. Fun and romantic, it is the perfect escape.

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?

Be prepared to swoon and fan yourself from the heat! This full-length standalone contains lots of hot baby-making s-e-x, happy tears, playful jokes and a hot, swoon worthy hero you will fall madly in love with. One-click now for pure reading enjoyment!
