5. Lauren Blakely wrote it.
I’m always a fan of Lauren Blakely’s work-her writing is my kryptonite. When I see her books on my kindle they immediately move to the top of my TBR list-and I devour them. I try to savor…but I just can’t. The concept this particular book sounded so different that I was dying to get my hands on it. I wanted to see the journey these two took. As I’ve come to expect from Ms. Blakely this book had me laughing out loud in spots, and swooning in others. It even had me crying-more than once.
From the very first sentence I was sucked in. Nicole charmed me immediately-I adored her. I GOT her. I thought she was funny and sweet. She’s a strong woman who isn’t afraid to go after what she wants. Her support system is great-both family and friends-and I loved cheering her on as I read along.
Ryder. Holy sexy Ryder. I was expecting to find him fun and to fall in love with him a bit but he stole my heart. He’s funny and smart but there’s this vulnerable side I didn’t see coming. Watching him evolve personally was incredible. He had me swooning and sighing.
Now these two together? Prepare for your kindle to melt. The spark between them quickly becomes an inferno. Their first kiss is going down as one of my top five first kisses ever written-it’s that good.
But it’s not all heat between them. Don’t get me wrong, the sexy times are fantastic, but it’s the relationship these two begin to unintentionally craft that had me grinning. Crazy fun dates, sweet little moments. The situation these two choose to put themselves in is tricky-and the author shows the balance they need to have perfectly. I haven’t found another author who portrays the reality of a relationship as well as Lauren Blakely does.
I *have* to mention the supporting cast of characters here. If you’ve read any of this author’s other books be prepared to see some past characters make an appearance. I loved seeing these characters (even if they were just briefly mentioned) and catching up with them. I literally danced in my chair when my all time favorite Lauren Blakely hero made a cameo appearance. Don’t worry-If you haven’t read other books it’s ok-this IS a standalone.
I’d rate this book higher than five stars if I possibly could. It’s just that incredible. This is a book I will read over and over. It has everything-humor, heart and heat. The characters are sexy and fun and real. Ms. Blakely has shown again why she is an immediate one click author for me and I eagerly look forward to her next book.
I highly recommend The Knocked Up Plan
