Publisher's Summary

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 coworker to do the job. Ryder is gorgeous, witty, and wild - and he's also a notorious commitmentphobe. 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. Right?

There are four words every guy wants to hear on the first date: "your place or mine?"

When my hot-as-sin coworker 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 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, anywhere, any night. Except...what if I do?

    "AHHH... BLISS AFTER A SOLID GOLD LISTEN"

    Lauren Blakely knocked it out of the park with this story.. but then she does so with every single flawless book she writes and that's why this talented Author's books are an auto-download for me. Because I know her storylines will be refreshingly different, her characters will be loveable, the sex will be hot, there'll be humor, it'll be a slow slide to greatness and the hero will be a guarded masterpiece just waiting for a strong woman.. the right woman to walk into his life and rock his world.. and this book didn't disappoint.

    Two radio gurus who dole out relationship words of wisdom daily but take many months to see what's been right under their noses the whole time.. love. Everything was well balanced, well paced and well written so I got to drool, got to grin, got to swoon, got to cheer them on and got to sigh happy sighs after a very touching Epilogue that finished a very sweet, very entertaining and very enjoyable story.

    Added to that is the awesome narration by Andi and Sebastian who skilfully brought this dual POV story to life and gave it wings.. wings that took this book to the very top of my ever growing pile of books by Ms. Blakely - but then again I say that after each one.

    Worth a credit? No doubts, no hesitation and no maybes here.. it wasn't dark, it wasn't emotionally draining, it wasn't deep and it wasn't full of suspense either.. but what it was was chick lit/rom com at its absolute finest - and YES very creditworthy.

    Great characters / easy to like. Lauren Blakely always makes me laugh. She's so damn funny. And the best 2 narrators ever-and together--is just the total package and makes for a wonderful escape.

    "Knock Out!!!"

    I have read a few books where this topic just didn't come across that great. That is NOT the case here. I loved watching them fall in love and how honest they were with each other. I enjoyed watching Ryder be super sweet and a man's man in one fell swoop...swoon!!!! Most of all I loved the multiple epilogs so I get to hear how it all panned out. Great job Lauren. You NAILED this book.

    "Lovely knock up"
    What did you love best about The Knocked Up Plan?

    It was very light and fun read that made me smile all the way through it and get the best feel good feeling ever.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ryder and to see how much he changed from the start of this book to its end.


    What does Andi Arndt and Sebastian York bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Andi did wonderful job with how she sounded as Nicole and also as the other characters.
    Sebastian was a magnificent Ryder and I really enjoyed listening to his performance.

    Their voices awoke this book to life and I enjoyed listening to every second of it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A wonderful knock up!


    Any additional comments?

    The last few chapters of the book were the highlights of this story for me.
    When both Ryder and Nicole realized what is out the most importance for them and they went all in to get it and hold on to it.

    I really loved this story so much.It started as something "casual" and grew into something deep and beautiful that most of us yarn for and cherish once it happens.I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a weel written feel good book with amazing characters to fall in love with.

    "Fun & Original!"

    I love the writing style of Lauren Blakey and find her books to be fun and humorous. Andi Arndt and Sebastian York are two awesome narrators. They bring so much to the book with their performance. One can feel the attitudes and emotions. I also love how this book is a standalone, yet has mention of characters from another book (Penny, Shortcake, Ruby) without taking away anything from either book. Another aspect of this book that I love is that I didn't feel down or have book hangover when it was done. Lauren's books never leave me feeling blah. I will definitely listen to this book again and look for more by this author and narrators. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher, and or narrators.

    "Loved this one!"

    I really enjoyed this one. I normally do enjoy Lauren Blakely's books. And, with these 2 narrators, what's not to love? Still, some I like more than others. And this one for me is up there with The Sexy One, which was holding the spot for my favorite so far by this author. This was a really nice listen, with characters that were well done. I liked them all. I love having a story where it's not just boy meets girl, have a little angst or baggage, then get together. While that's there, I love the fact that Nicole was not the typical woman who thinks getting married and having kids is the ultimate of life. I really like when 2 independent people can come together, but they weren't necessarily looking for that. I especially like it in a female lead. I like seeing variety in character types and Lauren Blakely does that. We don't all walk around spending every waking moment wanting to be in a relationship or trying to find a husband. Some of us will function just fine without one. So, when you do find one, you know it's the real deal and not someone you grabbed because being attached is so important. And, yes, I'm married. But, I was just fine when I wasn't. Anyway, just really enjoyed these characters.

    "Lauren Blakely brings it again!"

    Every time I listen to one of Lauren Blakely's books, I know I am in for complete entertainment. With the narration team of Sebastian York and Andi Arndt, the stories come to life with humor and passion. Stories like this are not new, but there are a few new twists on the plot. Nicole is at the age that she would like to have a baby, and has decided that she can do this on her own. She just needs a donor. Who better than her colleague Ryder? Ryder has every attribute she is looking for and they are good friends. Ryder is still dealing with his own baggage, so the question is, will he be willing to do this? Ryder is also in need of some help that Nicole is perfect to aid him with. The chemistry between these two is evident right away. Their flirty banter is so much fun and their journey through these life changing decisions is a complete joy. I have to say, listening to this with the doctor visits and emotional moods/morning sickness that is experienced brought back some memories for me, so there is also a nostalgic feeling for me as I listened. Definitely a good time!

    "The best plan in the world"

    4.5 stars

    THE KNOCKED UP PLAN is now my favourite Lauren Blakely book/listen. It just grabbed at one minute in and stayed at full engagement until the final word. The premise for the book is there in the title and it's a less-used trope that I love. Not only that, the main characters Nicole and Ryder charmed me with their personalities.

    Ryder felt a bit of a departure from the normal Blakely hero as he was a beta-alpha-beta kind of man and I fell for his gorgeous, caring, funny and insecure self. You just know he's going to be something special when instead of saying "you're mine", he says "I'm yours". Nicole provided the plan and I really liked her. The chemistry was everything I expect from Blakely's writing talents with that dose of humour that rocks. Here's an abridged quote (because this is audio, I can't check easily) that really made me laugh.

    "There he was in his dark blue jeans, jeans that I'm sure gossiped to other jeans about what it was like to hug his thighs."

    The narration duo are excellent and Sebastian York was able to translate a more beta male well. I love these two narrators in action, not a lot can go wrong! I always try to listen to Blakely's books rather than read because I just enjoy the humour and characters more this way.

    If someone asked me where to start with Lauren Blakely, this would now be my suggestion. Highly recommended to all fans of hot, romantic comedy.

    A copy of this audiobook was provided by the author in return for an honest review.

    "Hormone inducing!!"

    This book had me feeling all of the hormones, all of the romance and every feel, it even made my eyes leak! Ryder swooned me off my feet with his hot baby daddy charming awesomeness. He touched me in all the right places and hot footed it right up to become first place as the favourite Blakely Boy, if you can be that romantic you make me tear up, you win my heart Ryder......

    Nicole is a sexy doll, not afraid to go it alone, strong, sassy and determined to get what she wants, yet open to altering her plans if things don't go exactly to 'plan'.

    Adored this book, the Narrators are two of my favourites who I listen to againn and again and they did not disappoint. Sebastian has a knack to make me swoon, and Andi can play any role given to her, with each sounding new every time I listen.

    "Amazing. "

    *Received an audio copy of this book from the author for an honest Review.*

    Omg. This was my second book (in audio) by Lauren and OMG! It was just amazing. It pulled on the right emotions. Love, laughter, sadness, maternal and paternal instinct. It was just PERFECT.

    Ms Lauren has created an amazing story where a simple woman wants one thing: a baby. To have her own little family. And she is ready to do a lot of things to get what she wants. Even asking her work colleague to be a donor. Simple. Right?

    This book is just so funny. I was listening to it at work and many times I giggled or snorted aloud. Perfect.

    Thank you for creating such fun, hot, sexy and emotional at the same time book!

    5 stars!

    "Full five stars"

    Having just read Hot Cop by Laurelin Paige and Sierra Simone I was expecting much the same. Single woman desperate for a baby, no strings sex etc. I was happy to discover that although the storyline was very similar (are we going to see an influx of these now?) the characters and the writing were very different, oh and I forgot to say that I listened to this on audible with the wonderful Sebastian York and Andi Arndt. I loved all the characters in this story, there were no evil overlords or bitchy exes, it was a complete feel good sexy romance. Nicole is intelligent, witty and and a real nice gal, her friend and work colleague Ryder is hot as sin, witty and an all round good guy. They bantered well together and their chemistry was off the charts. Told in dual POV, I can fully recommend this standalone sweet as sugar romance. The narration, as usual from this duo, was just perfect. Full five stars from me.

    If you could sum up The Knocked Up Plan in three words, what would they be?

    Hilarious, HOT, and heartwarming!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ryder because he's just the right amount of hot and hilarious.


    What does Andi Arndt and Sebastian York bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    As always they're an amazing duo. Andi brings vibrancy and life to her characters. And of course Mr. York just oozes sex in his voice, but also has amazing comedic timing. Together they are magic!
