Everything I love about romantic comedies was here, all wrapped up into a fabulously well written package. The plot wasn’t a typical workplace romance, and Blakely’s take on this genre was a breath of fresh air. I’m always impressed by the research she does for her books. This author is wildly creative, and she always finds something interesting and fun that makes each of her couples unique—their “thing.” I loved what she did in this book–it was romantic, exciting and, quite honestly, pretty darn inspiring.
These two characters are professional communicators, so it was no surprise that they had the banter down pat—it was sharp, witty and never missed a beat. The humor in this book is abundant, but pay very close attention. What really kept me grinning throughout this story was the completely pragmatic way this couple approached their arrangement. Totally oblivious to their mutual attraction, neither one of them ever really considered the ramifications of throwing some romance onto that blazing inferno of lust. It was pretty tongue-in-cheek, and I have to say Blakely executed it spectacularly. I think all of her readers will agree, though, that while she doesn’t hesitate to put obstacles in her characters’ paths to their happily-ever-afters, she also doesn’t allow those obstacles to turn into these big, drawn-out, pain-filled, angst-ridden scenarios. There is just enough contention, just the right amount of conflict, before she delivers an incredibly satisfying resolution. I don’t know how other readers feel about that, but I find it pretty dang refreshing.
I just couldn’t put this book down! It was so romantic, so swoony, so incredibly sexy! The Knocked Up Plan kept me furiously tapping my Kindle, late into the night, while simultaneously lamenting the turn of those pages and the fact that each one drew the story closer to completion. Three-hundred-plus pages of pure reading pleasure, this story kept me smiling from start to finish. Five smooches from me for Lauren Blakely’s The Knocked Up Plan!

I don't know where to even begin with this review. This was absolutely everything I've come to expect from a Blakely book and then some. We have Nicole, a mating and dating columnist and Ryder, a relationship consultant: they are coworkers at Hanky Panky Love - a more apt radio station name I've yet to come across. They are fabulous friends and while Nicole thinks Ryder is sex on legs and Ryder thinks Nicole has the sexiest legs, they've never crossed the ping pong line.
Nicole is very happily single and has never been in love. However, she does want children of her own and is looking at IVF options, and by options I mean sperm donors. Unfortunately, none of the donors she's considering meet all of her criteria. She has a lightbulb moment and wonders if Ryder would be willing to provide his specimen for purposes of reproduction. It's all very black and white, clinical, and straightforward until Ryder is presented with the proposal. While Ryder enjoys most aspects of his job, his show has been more about sex and not so much about intimacy. He has been given the option to shape up or ship out of Hanky Panky Love. In order to turn the tone of the show around, he's to take a woman on ten dates and woo her, reporting back to the masses on intimacy and feelings. The two make a new agreement to enjoy the dates together and work on Nicole's desire for a baby at the same time.
I have to say that I enjoyed their dates almost as much as they did. I also love that (and anyone who follows Blakely on social media will know this) the authors love for animals comes across on the pages. The pets are like well loved family members with a personality of their own and frankly, I think it's the sweetest thing ever.
Blakely had me in tears of laughter and tears of heartache from the very first page. I have never felt so invested in a relationship and with two characters - both individually and as a couple - before. Maybe I could relate to certain aspects and that made it all the more satisfying. Whatever the reason, I feel like the romance and the fun and the steaminess has catapulted The Knocked Up Plan to my newest favorite Blakely RomCom. You can absolutely read this as a standalone although characters that we've met in previous books do pop in for a quick cameo.
