Review: Knocked Up by Stacey Lynn
Publication Date: June 12th, 2018
Series: Crazy Love #2
Rating: 4 Stars
Official Blurb: 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 standmight’ve led me to the one.
Review: I was super excited to read this book, and it did not disappoint. This was my first book by Stacey, and it definitely won’t be my last.
So, Braxton and Cara started off as a one-night stand, but it completely turned into so much more. Cara never expected to see Braxton again, much less be having his baby. She is super shocked to find out that he actually wants to step up and be a part of the whole entire experience. Both characters were a little judgmental in the beginning, but quickly changed their attitudes, when the truth started to come out.
Of course, there are bumps along the way, but Braxton is literally there every step of the way. Cara’s parents are just horrible people to her, and I felt so bad. I adored both characters, and their chemistry is off the charts. I really enjoyed this book, and I can’t wait for more.
