There are a handful of authors that I have read their books from this Knocked up Anthology. Most of them are new to me authors and I love discovering new authors and those that are just new to me. This is a great way to get an introduction. There is something for everyone from several different tropes, second chance, enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, etc. The list is long so I haven’t listed them all.
I felt a little overwhelmed with how many novellas there were in this Anthology and feel I might have overdosed on this many knocked up stories so I would suggest not reading them all at one time but do read to then end! Just dole out the stories in smaller reading times. Overall I am going to give this Anthology 4 stars.
Finding Prince Charming by Nikki Ash is the first book in the Knocked Up Anthology and is William Arnold Thomas Lewis Christiansen the Fourth and Natalie’s story. Natalie has had an extremely rough life. She meets Liam and has a one night encounter with him and after romancing her he ends up leaving her without a trace. Since she has no idea as to who he really is she can’t find him to let him know that he is a father to be. Fast forward 5 years. She ends up with a surprise as to who Liam really is. I haven’t read anything by this author but have promoted her books in the past with my blog. I love when I discover a new to me author. This was an enjoyable little story and I would like to read more from her.
Quarterback Keeper by Lacey Black is another author from this anthology whom I have promoted but have never read a book by her but, one that I would like to read more of her books.
Ashtyn Harris’ twin brother Alex is best friends with Tate Steele (a quarterback with the St. Louis Fire Pro football team) Tate is staying with her brother for the weekend while he rests his knee injury. Ashtyn and Tate end up drinking a bit too much and things get pretty steamy. Of course you know what happens since this book is entitled Knocked Up.
Spark by Nicole Blanchard – This is Avery and Walker’s story. She is a bartender/waitress and he is a Wildland Firefighter. Walker works 9 months of the year off fighting wildfires. Both of them are lonely so you know what happens next. And then Walker is gone again. But he left a surprise. When he is back in town after a storm has hit the town that Avery lives in and Walker volunteers for the fire dept. He finds Avery again and the little surprise he left behind.
Nicole Blanchard is another new to me author and this was another enjoyable story.
My Ruin by Jacob Chance – is up next in this anthology. Emmett & Juliet Thatcher Juliet is 10 years older than Emmett. I do my best to get with the times but I just can’t get used to older women, younger men romances. The story was well written and entertaining. And I have another author to read. 4 stars
Calm the Storm by Kelsey Clayton – Ash Harland Storm & Emery knew each other as kids. This is a friend to lovers, and enemies to lovers’ romance. I loved this story and Kelsey is a new to me author.
Truth and Lies by J.D. Holly Field – I have read a book or 2 by this author. Forbidden love. 2 rich families. 2 kids as pawns for the families. They love each other but their families have different plans for them. Jake is 22 and Willa is 18. How can parents do what they did to their own children? I loved this book and I can’t stand their parents.
And One by Rebecca Jenshak – Rylee and John met in college and neither got the other’s last name. That meeting produced a baby. (doesn’t sound very sexy but I am sure it was) 😉 Rylee had a baby from that meeting but didn’t have John’s last name so he had no idea he was a father until Rylee and a girlfriend went to a party and John was there. Of course this story continues from there. This author is also another new to me author. I am looking forward to reading more books from her.
Hideaway by CoraLee June – My favorite story out of all of them!!! I loved this story but then I like to mix my dark reads with being “Knocked Up”! Also, I love this author’s books! This is Lydia Love and Nico Mariano’s story. Why, why, why Dax???? 5+ stars
A Piece of Us by Heidi McLaughlin – Charlotte’s and Jack’s story. Heidi McLaughlin is another author that I have read a few of her books and really enjoy how she writes. I felt so badly for Jack. He has a kind of sad story. Growing up in Foster Homes and never feeling like he has any family until he meets Charlotte.
My Favorite Mistake by Lauren Runow – Michelle and Travis story. Lauren Runow is another of my favorite authors. I loved this story. Of course this is another knocked up story so you know that Michelle gets pregnant and it is probably a one night stand. They all have a common theme.
Every Other Memory by Kaylee Ryan – a new to me author.
Between the Lines by Micaela Smeltzer – A new to me author. I enjoyed reading Travis and Alba’s story. Travis just left and gone for a while. Not telling anyone what he was doing, including Alba after they had sex. Which resulted in a pregnancy. He just shows back up and Alba is angry, go figure….. I really enjoyed reading this story and glad that Alba let Travis back into their lives.
Meant to Be by Jenika Snow – This is Jameson and Lia’s story. They were best friends and got drunk and they made a baby together. Jameson was going away for a year so he didn’t know. After 12 months away Jameson was back and there was a surprise waiting for him. It was meant to be…..
Snapshot by Marley Valentine – Another new to me author. Blake and Rosario’s story. Blake & Rosario are on a photoshoot. .
Doctor Daddy by Misty Walker – Another new to me author. MM story.
Miss B by K. Webster – Not a new to me author. I generally love K. Webster’s books but this taboo romance – is not one of my favorite genres because it is an older woman vs younger man romance. This was also a crossover from Doctor Daddy by Misty Walker’s story.
