The Knocked up Plan
by Lauren Blakely

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have to say, I’m a huge Lauren Blakely fan. I spend a small fortune buying her ebooks and audio books. Of course, I had to buy up Knocked Up Plan as soon as it came out, and I just finished listening to the audio book today.

The characters were smoking hot together. The steamy scenes were well written, as usual. The whole story was dripping sweet.

So why did this not get my usual 5 stars that LB books usually rate? Well…

[SPOILER ALERT AHEAD]

I didn’t see hardly any conflict in this book. It felt like it all came way too easy. They liked each other from the start and they basically knew it from the start. There was some internal conflict on both sides… does he like me? Does she feel the same? Can he get past his cheating ex and love again? If she asks him for more, will she ruin everything?

There started out being some conflict at the beginning with their boss coming down on Ryder, but it seemed like he had that all resolved by like midway through the story.

But I have enough self awareness to know that this all boils down to personal preference, and while I like to see more conflict that makes the happily ever after just that much sweeter at the end, I know there are also a lot of people out there who like to read books that don’t have that much angst. If that is you, then I can wholeheartedly recommend this book.

[END SPOILERS]

I did like the chemistry between these characters. I thought they were both written well as far as giving depth and consistence to each character. They had a lot in common, and Ryder was such a gentleman, he really gave the typical bad boy Heroes a run for their money in the hot and sexy department. Nicole was also a fun character to get to know, being a stong, confident, self sufficient woman who knew exactly what she wanted and wasn’t afraid to work for it.

In short, not my all time favorite Lauren Blakely book, but it’s not gonna stop me from one-clicking the next one to come out!
