Cara is restarting her life after the loss of her brother, who she feels she must now live the life he would want her to have. She is an inspiring artist who has left her rich background and has now found out she is pregnant from her one-night stand at her best friend’s wedding. She leaves a good part of herself locked away, not wanting to trust but realizes that she has to let people in and allow them to help especially after she is diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidum. Braxton has struggled almost all of his life, it started before he was born due to his mother being addicted to drugs. He struggled through school because of his dyslexia but was lucky enough to have an amazing mentor who gave him everything that he needed to succeed and make something of himself. The only that Braxton has really wanted was a family of his own, so he knows that in order to keep this chance he has to do everything possible to make Cara feel welcomed and cared for in his own way. Unfortunately, he is not exactly quite sure how to accomplish this as he can’t seem to figure out what it is that Cara truly wants from him.

The main focus is the building of the relationship and trust between Cara and Braxton. They know they have a physical attraction but realize that they also need to be honest and on a more deeper level. You are able to connect with characters as well as their struggles, the writing allows you to see the story come to life inside of your mind. It is a perfectly balanced story that has you feeling a wide range of emotions when it comes to the characters. The story is evenly paced for the most part, until the end when it feels super rushed and leaves you wondering umm, how did we get here so quick. This story is written in the first person, with alternating point of views between Cara and Braxton.

Yes, I would recommend. This story is a collection of emotions that have you wondering what is going to happen next. It leaves you with a sense of family and wanting to experience it. This story would be perfect for those who are looking for a cute and real-life like a situational story. It would also be good for anyone who wants to believe that love can come from anywhere with anyone. ( )

A super cute book, that shows opposites, clearly are attracted to each other. After their mutual best friends wedding, these two have a one-night stand with the promise of more. Life happens and it doesn't work out. Fast forward six weeks, and you guess it, she's "knocked up" This book really takes the if life gives you lemons approach, and it was light hearted, but not so light hearted that the author tried to brush off the severity of the consequences. Told in dual pov, this is a great book to read if you don't have to be bogged down with something heavy. ( )

I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. Knocked Up by Stacey Lynn is the second book in her Crazy Love series but can definitely be read as a stand-alone. The death of Cara Thompson’s twin brother had made her realize that she needs to live life on her own terms and if that means being an artist rather than the lawyer her parents expect her be then that is what she should do. Braxton Henley a boy from the wrong side of the tracks is now a successful business owner of MadInks Tattoos and when these two meet as members of their best friends wedding party a whole lot of steam happens. Going from strangers to parents in the blink of an eye is not with out its struggles but they do have the intense physical attraction that brought them together in the first place going for them and what started out as a one night stand just might be forever. Super Steamy. Publishing Date June 12, 2018

Have you ever wanted a book not to end? That was me with Knocked Up.

I couldn't get enough of these two as I read about their adorable story. I seriously had a smile on my face the entire time I read this book.

At first, I was a little disappointed that we don't get the dirty details about the night in question (other than the fact that there was a silly communication assumption). But watching these two reunite with their unexpected news added this amazing tension to the story that had me begging for more. Their entire romance had this slow burn vibe to it that sucked me in immediately. From their explosive physical chemistry to their ability to communicate with each other truthfully, I was so in love with these two.

Braxton is definitely a new book boyfriend for me! What a sweet guy! His backstory was intriguing and inspiring. And I loved Cara as well. Watching her grow more confident in herself and her ability to live independently was great. Both had strong character development from start to end which is always awesome.

Stacey Lynn has definitely added herself to my "must-read" authors list after this great sequel!

Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author..(netgalley) I did enjoy this book, and I had read some of the previous reviews and found some of them pretty harsh towards the heroine and the story line. First off, hey one stand happen, and accidental pregnancies also happen. What I tended not to agree on with some others is the character of Cara, I understood why she went back and forth with her reasoning, this girls was abused by her horrid parents, neglected. Then her twin brother whom was always there for her and the only one who truly believed in her and always wanted her to have a better life. So yes this girl grew up rich, but with no love and she always wanted some acceptance. She meets Braxton and he is giving her the acceptance and compliments, she is not used to them so I understand why it took her a little to get used to having someone see all the good in her.. Enjoy!!
