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.

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.

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.

Loved Lauren Blakely's latest offering. Full of humor and just sexy enough. Sebastian York and Andi Arndt are amazing narrators. Can't wait for the next one.
