My Review: Knocked Up by Stacey Lynn

C5DF9B0D-6C41-405C-ADEF-CF4C6D6413B1First 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.

~I’m a trembling shaking mess as I see tears fill his own eyes and there’s nothing we can say. Nothing we can say to each other because this sound . . . this glorious whooshing, galloping sound is the most beautiful thing I’ve heard in my entire life. “We made a baby.” A tear falls down Braxton’s cheek and he leans down, brushing his lips over my cheek, and his voice is so gruff, so broken and beautiful. “Thank you. Thank you so much, Cara.”~

This was the most BEAUTIFUL love story.

Let me start at the beginning. Braxton and Cara met at their mutual friends, actually best friends, wedding. They were immediately attracted to each other and had a wonderful night of sex. In the morning, Cara, who had never had a one night stand and didn’t know how to act, plus she didn’t want her feelings hurt by how he might push her away, did what her friends had always talked about that they did, she got up early, snuck out and disappeared. Left no note, number, nothing.

Six weeks later, Cara discovers she’s pregnant. She’s been with no one since Braxton, so she has no doubt he’s the father. This is all in a very brief introduction, what follows is Braxton finding out he’s a father. Cara being surprised by his reaction of wanting to be all in. Which really is so great, because Cara has no one, except her best friend. The story that follows is about two people getting to know each other, and it is the most BEAUTIFUL love story.

Braxton … I have to stop and comment on Braxton, he is the perfect book boyfriend!!!! He is PERFECT!!!!

This is such an emotional book. Braxton and Cara are two very different people, but it’s so beautiful how they come to love each other for those differences. They have their ups and downs, but it’s those ups and downs that help bring them closer together. Like I say, a BEAUTIFUL love story.

Don’t miss it! Highly recommended!
