Big Shot - About book 

BIG SHOT_Amazon 

To believe one person can change your destiny sounds absurd. But it happened to me… twice.  

Ten years ago I had no idea what I wanted out of life, until I met Hannah Michaels. She was a computer-engineering student ready to conquer the social media world, and I was smitten. Even though I knew she was taken, I had to have her.  

Being the big shot that I was, I didn’t let her status stand in my way. It wasn’t long before my hands were on her thighs and my name a whisper on her lips. This smart, sexy girl inspired me to greatness, helped me grow into the kind of man I never knew I wanted to be. The man I am today. 

 Too bad I hadn’t grown fast enough to keep her.  

Moving on wasn’t easy, but I knew I had to let her go. Eventually, I found someone to share my days and nights with, and together we had a daughter. My life was nearly perfect until my world turned upside down.  

A single father has challenges, and one of those is learning how to calmly deal with your child coming home in tears. I had no idea the day I pounded on my daughter’s classmate’s door, Hannah would be the one standing on the other side.  

The wild, burning desire that rushed through my veins was unwanted, and yet impossible to ignore. Letting her in meant so much more this time around. Guilt hit me like a hammer. I hated myself. I hated her. The problem was I really didn’t hate her—I wanted her more than ever.  

But this time around, I can’t have her. 

 This time it’s my status that stands in our way—and going up against myself just might be the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

There are three little words most guys don't want to hear on the first date. Not those...I mean these... "knock me up."

This single gal has had enough of the games, the BS and the endless chase. I know what I want most, and it's not true love. It's a bun in the oven, and I'm not afraid to hit up my sex-on-a-stick co-worker to do the job. Ryder is gorgeous, witty and charming -- and he's also a notorious commitment-phobe. That makes him the perfect candidate to make a deposit in the bank of me.

I won't fall for him, he won't fall for me, and there's no way baby will make three.

Right?

**** There are four words every guy wants to hear on the first date -- "your place or mine?"

When my hot-as-sin co-worker makes me a no-strings-attached offer that involves her place, my place, any place -- as well as any position -- I can't refuse. Besides, I've got my own reasons to take her up on her deal even with her one BIG condition.

There's no way I'll want more from one woman than any position, any where, any night? Except . . . what if I do?

Be prepared to swoon and fan yourself from the heat! This full-length standalone contains lots of hot baby-making s-e-x, happy tears, playful jokes and a hot, swoon worthy hero you will fall madly in love with. One-click now for pure reading enjoyment!

Oh Lauren you slay me with your sexy banter, adorable characters and beautiful love stories. Every time I begin I feel this subtle shift in my heart like I'm visiting with a friend. I know I'll be swept away with blazing passion, giggling softly or laughing out loud from the quirky humor, or swooning with all the feels.. That's romance folks and that's what you'll get in
The Knocked up plan. 


This hero.. He's everything. Ryder.. Even his name is just perfect. This is why Nicole our heroine picks his swimmers as her baby batter. 



He's a good guy through and through. But with a counter offer things get hotter than hot and closer than close. These two can't fight that feeling and fall so hard. I recommend this read for anyone who needs a refreshing tale about love at its beginning, friendship and all the ups and downs of adding in agreements and a baby.. You'll be smiling and swooning the entire time. 
Most epic scene awaits.. Go dive in..





✦The audiobook will be narrated by Sebastian York and Andi Arndt! Link coming soon! ✦



       

"A refreshing take on the baby trope, The Knocked Up Plan is as sweet as it is naughty. Blakely not only balloons Nicole and Ryder’s incredibly powerful chemistry to new heights with their steamy love scenes, but she also infuses sweet emotion into every single one of their interactions."

- USA Today



    Yanking open the door, I head inside. I stride to the small cafe where Ryder said he’d wait for me.
My chest falls. The man is known for punctuality. I scan the white bakery case and the five round iron tables, but he’s not here. When I spin around and survey the bookshelves, my heart nearly leaps from my chest.
He’s in the . . .
Oh my fucking God, he’s waiting for me in the . . .
I bring my hand to my mouth, and I want to run, to leap into his arms. When he sees me, his blue eyes twinkle with mischief.
I am a teapot about to whistle. I am a dog dancing before dinnertime.
He taps the shelves and holds up a book.
A pregnancy guide.
He’s ten feet from me. But I sprint anyway, and I grin like a fool. I stop two inches from him and clamp my hands on his broad shoulders. “Is that a yes?”
“Yes—”
I tackle-hug him before he can say anything more. I knock the breath from him in an oomph as I rope my arms around his neck and crash into him.
“But I have one condition,” he says, embracing me back.
I’m crying tears of happiness, so I don’t care. “Anything. Name it.”
“You better hear it before you agree.”
The moment screeches to a halt. He’s going to want visitation rights. He’ll want lots of money. He’ll want summers, or weekends, or evenings out.
I unwrap myself from the warmth of his strong chest and swallow. “What’s your condition?”
“I thought it would be best to present it in the form of a column.”
“A column?”
“Top five list and everything.”
I groan inside. He has five conditions? Maybe my mother was right. Maybe asking for baby-mix from someone you know is a big mistake. Anonymous donors request nothing but greenbacks.
I steel myself as he fishes in the back pocket of his jeans. The paper is square, folded in quarters. He hands it to me. “Open it.”
I unfold it then read the headline out loud. “‘Top Five Positions for Getting a Woman Pregnant’?”
I blink and stare at him. The cogs turn slowly in my brain. I part my lips to speak.
He raises a hand to silence me. “Hear me out. You explained how it worked. The room, the cup, the magazines, the videos. The whacking off in a fucking public place. The cost. But most of all . . . the wait.
You’d have to wait for an appointment for me, for the testing, for the jerking off, then for your special date with the turkey baster.” He cups my cheek. His hand is big and warm. “What if we did it the
old-fashioned way?”
  

“The chemistry between Ryder and Nicole is COMBUSTIBLE!!! They are magic together.”

Passion and danger collide in the latest contemporary romance featuring the Lawless siblings—from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake. When Drew Lawless discovers a fatal flaw in his plan to avenge his parents’ deaths, he turns to the one woman he promised he wouldn't touch. He offers her a deal, one that will bring her into his investigation, his life, and his bed. Investigative reporter Shelby Gates never dreamed how twisted the case would become—or how fascinated she would be with Drew. Every day they spend together binds them. And every night brings her closer to realizing he might be the man for her. As Drew's feelings for Shelby grow, so does the danger. From the streets of Dallas to Austin’s high-tech business world, Drew and Shelby play a game begun twenty years before—a game they will win, or die trying.

WOW! What a fan-freaking-tastic conclusion to a roller coaster ride of a series. The end of Satisfaction had me reeling, screaming  “WTF just happened” and left me wanting more… More passion, more sexy Lawlessness and more answers. I couldn’t wait to get my greedy hands on Drew’s book and finally untangle the convoluted web of secrets and deceptions behind his father’s murder. Although my anticipations ran high, deep down I did not want this saga to end. Seeing all their heartaches and joys, I fell in love with the Lawless family and will miss them tremendously. Lexi Blake has out done herself with another intense romance filled with twists and turns that had me constantly on edge. Revenge was by far my favorite read within the trilogy.

This is Drew’s story and he stole the show and my heart in this read. To fully understand his character, his experiences and the complexities of the story line, you’ll need to read the prior two installments. He’s a survivor. A fighter. A shrewd and successful businessman. Above all - Drew loves his family to a fault, selflessly putting their safety, happiness and protection before his own. Wary of outsiders, very few are permitted into his inner circle of trust, and with good reason.  On the surface he’s guarded and manipulative, bringing the broody-temperamental-reclusive hero persona to a whole new level of sexy. But seeing his painful past, I understood the revenge seeking man he needed to be. I adored him despite his often-assholish like tendencies and I could not wait for that heartwarming moment when the iceman cracked under the weight of sweet Shelby’s affections. That’s when I truly fell for all things Drew, seeing him change from detached and unapproachable to so openly loving.

Shelby’s the perfect match for the likes of Drew. This tenacious reporter, hired to investigate the decades old murder of Ben Lawless, has a soft spot when it comes to our hero. Beyond compassionate and understanding, she endearingly tends to all of Drew’s needs - showering him with love while melting his icy heart. Together, their sexual chemistry explodes, making this the hottest read of the series. The connection they share is powerful and instantaneous.

Once again Blake had me under her spell, imprisoned within the pages of her riveting love story. This read had it all…lust, passion, intensity, unending plot twists, lovable characters, nefarious villains and touching emotional moments. For fans of romantic suspense, this series is a must read.  

I voluntarily read an advance copy in exchanged for an honest review


 


Shelby brushed her lips against his, her whole body seeming to come to life. His lips were soft, his hands tight. He was enveloping her and she was completely defenseless against him.
She wrapped her arms around him as the kiss deepened, and suddenly she didn’t want to play it safe anymore. She’d been in her shell for so long and she wanted to come out of it, wanted to feel again. She dragged her tongue over his lower lip, and it seemed to awaken the beast in Drew.
He took over, the kiss going from sweet to carnal in an instant. His mouth opened, tongue sliding over hers and dominating with strength and a sensuality she’d never come across before. He kissed her long and hard, his hands molding to the curves of her body. Over and over again his tongue danced with hers. Never before had a kiss seemed so effortless. It was like they’d been kissing forever.
For a man who claimed he was socially awkward, he sure could kiss like a god.
It was getting out of hand, but she didn’t care. Nothing mattered except getting more of him. She could feel his cock under her, hardening, lengthening, getting ready for what it was meant to do. He could ease her back against the table, pull off her jeans and panties. It would be incendiary, like a rocket going off, an explosion she couldn’t contain. She could feel herself getting soft and wet and ready for him, as though her body had recognized its natural mate and wasn’t taking no for an answer.
“See, I told you we have chemistry.” His words rumbled along her lips.
She couldn’t argue with him. The world around them seemed hazy and unreal. There was nothing except his touch and scent and the sight of his eyes looking at her like he could eat her up. She knew she should stop him, knew it was getting out of control, but she couldn’t find the will. It had been so damn long since she wanted something she could actually have.
She wanted him.
Shelby let her fingers sink into his hair, drawing him back down. Breakfast could wait. She needed more of him.
