Knocked Up by Stacey Lynn
Publication Date: June 12, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Knocked Up Cover_resize


SYNOPSIS:

First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes baby in a baby carriage. Just not necessarily in that order....

Braxton: I should probably be dead or in jail right now. Instead, thanks to some tough love, I worked my ass off and now I own a string of tattoo parlors throughout the Pacific Northwest. And yet the one thing I’ve always wanted—a family—still seems out of reach. When my best friend gets married, I’m just hoping to blow off some steam with the super-hot maid of honor. But after Cara Thompson tracks me down to tell me she’s pregnant, she’s more surprised than I am when I tell her I’m all in.

Cara: For the first time in my life, I’m living for myself—not for my parents and their ridiculous expectations. I gave up on my MBA, dropped out of the Ivy League, and moved to Portland to pursue my dream of becoming an artist. And what’s the first thing I do? Get knocked up. For a tatted-up sex god, Braxton Henley seems way too eager to “be there for me.” Is this guy serious? Maybe. He sure is patient. Because he won’t back down until I admit what I know in my heart: that our one night stand might’ve led me to the one.

READ AN EXCERPT:

I quickly take everything off and drape the paper sheet over my lap, leaving my socks on, and when I’m ready, the edges of the sheet tucked under my thighs and backside, Pam knocks on the door.

“Ready?” she calls as she’s already pushing open the door.

“Yup.” I sound like I’m about ready to croak, and Braxton’s deep, rumbling chuckle worsens my rattled nerves. He kissed me! 

I raise my hand to my mouth and as my fingertips press my lips, they’re taken away, gripped in Braxton’s warm hold. He smiles down at me knowingly and I force my attention on Pam.

She pulls the internal monitor out of the drawer, along with a bottle of lubricant and a condom, and Braxton’s grip on my hand turns almost bone-crushing.

“Is that—”

“Yup.” I cut him off.

“Um.”

“Now you see why I wanted the external one,” I mutter quietly.

I can’t look at him. My cheeks are on fire, and for some absolutely insane reason, other parts of my body are warming and this should not be happening at my midwife’s office.

“So,” Pam says, turning around and back to business. Except it’s hard to take her seriously as she waves what looks like a massive vibrator in her hand. “We’re going to insert this inside of you.”

“Holy shit,” Braxton mutters. And God, kill me. Please kill me now.

If Pam hears him, she ignores him as she steps toward me, and pulls out a set of stirrups from beneath the table. “I’m going to need you to lie down, Cara, and spread your legs, and slip down to the edge of the bed for me.”

“I feel like I’ve heard this before,” I say, unable to stop myself. My filter has evaporated along with my self-respect and all of this is so absolutely humiliating.

Pam pauses, glances at me and then at Braxton and nods, understanding. But I swear, as her gaze sweeps down Braxton’s arms, even she blushes. Which is great . . . my midwife thinks my non-boyfriend baby daddy is hot.

“I feel like I’ve said this before,” Braxton says, and both of our eyes whip to him. My gracious. He’s smiling, shoulders shaking like he’s holding back the world’s most boisterous laugh, and it’s all I can do to not kill him while he’s standing there, glancing between the monitor-slash-vibrator and my spread legs and I can’t hold it in anymore.

“This is embarrassing.”

Pam is back to business, already spreading the condom over the phallic-shaped instrument, and then she drizzles on the lubricant.

Braxton’s breath brushes over my cheeks. His dark locks tickle my temple as he whispers, “I feel like I should be offering to help with this.”

“Shut up,” I grit, my stomach muscles clenching from trying not to die or laugh. “This isn’t funny.”

“Oh. This is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen, I’m not going to lie.”

My fingers squeeze his hand and Pam is in front of me. She holds a small black box in her other hand and the tip of the wand against my center. “I’ll go slow, and it might be cold, okay?”

“Yup.” 

“Sweet Jesus,” Braxton whispers. “I don’t know whether to be terrified or turned on right now, Cara.”




OUR REVIEWS:
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

5 Stars from Renee!

I was pulled right into this story. The story has pain, secrets, and heartbreak. 

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first:
Fake Wife (Crazy Love, #1)

This is Cara and Braxton’s story. Braxton has worked hard to get where he is today. When he goes to his best friend’s wedding he is looking to blow off a little steam. He meets Cara and they hit it off. They have some fun times. When she ends up knocked up after those sexy times she tracks down Braxton. He’s all in but she is not sure what he is getting out of this. The more time they spend together the more she falls but does he want her or just the baby? 

I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read. 


I highly recommend this book.

5 Stars from Brianna!

Stacey Lynn has always been good and someone I come back for but wow this book is my favorite by her. Knocked Up was a sexy, sweet, fun, emotional romance with one accidental pregnancy that is going go give them more than just a baby... it's gonna give them love.

After their best friends get married, they have an unforgettable one night stand. One that six weeks later results in a bundle to be. She's strong, independent, and resilient to her upbringing. He's smart, intense and honest from his past. He wants everything and she's taking baby steps.

But Braxton is all in and he'll do anything to prove it to Cara... but not without a few bumps, complications, and misunderstandings. But together they after undeniable and so damn irresistible. Every moment they gave was beautiful.

This book... so brilliant. One guy that will make you swoon, even with his imperfections and one girl that's gonna make you high five (a time or ten)!

I highly recommend this book.
