Just call me Mister O. Because YOUR pleasure is my super power.
Making a woman feel 'oh-god-that's-good' is the name of the game, and if a man can't get the job done, he should get out of the bedroom. I'm talking toe-curling, mind-blowing, sheet-grabbing ecstasy. Like I provide every time.
I suppose that makes me a superhero of pleasure, and my mission is to always deliver.
BUT then I'm thrown for a loop when a certain woman asks me to teach her everything about how to win a man. The only problem? She's my best friend's sister, but she's far too tempting to resist--especially when I learn that sweet, sexy Harper, has a dirty mind too and wants to put it to good use. What could possibly go wrong as I give the woman I've secretly wanted some no-strings-attached lessons in seduction?
No one will know, even if we send a few naughty texts. Okay, a few hundred. Or if the zipper on her dress gets stuck. Not on that! Or if she gives me those get-over-here-and-take-me-eyes on the train in front of her whole family.
The trouble is the more nights I spend with her in bed, the more days I want to spend with her out of bed. And for the first time ever, I'm not only thinking about how to make a woman cry out in pleasure -- I'm thinking about how to keep her in my arms for a long time to come.

MISTER O is a fabulous, hot yet heartwarming romance written solely from the guy's point of view. While such a technique is refreshing, it could be a hit or miss. With Lauren Blakely's MISTER O, I'm glad to say that it's a hit with me!
Mister O is Nick Hammer, who's the author and creator of the wildly popular comic strip featuring superhero Mister O, dedicated to pleasuring women everywhere. And in his real life, Nick is very like Mister O, being a master of a woman's O. However, he's at a crossroads when he finds himself lusting after his best friend's sister, Harper, who's interested in another man and wants Nick to tutor her so she could get her man. What is Nick to do?
Lauren Blakely handles the simmering tension between Nick and Harper very well, stretching out the sexual tension until I was screaming for them to just get it on already! Sex is said to occupy 99.99% of a man's brain (and time and attention), and while we do see this (as we are in Nick's POV), Ms. Blakely gave us a lot of the 0.01% so there's a whole lot of balance between sex and romance between Nick and Harper. Nick, I'm glad to see, possesses some of the finer feelings toward Harper, like, he really cared about her instead of just wanting to bang her, and not just toward the latter end of the book, but almost from the start. I guess it helps that they've been friends for a long time, and friends, even if they lust after each other, do care for one another as well.
That said, I'm not sure how realistic is the portrayal of Nick's thoughts and his POV, as I'm not a man. However, it doesn't really matter to me. As long as the romance is satisfying, that's all that I care about. And the romance here is sigh-worthy, so no complaints from me! While we don't see things from Harper's POV, we do see her reactions and actions via Nick, so we can somehow guess what she's thinking and feeling.
Nick and Harper are great characters, relatable and likeable that I was rooting for them the entire way. You can see that they're friends, with some simmering tension underneath. If you like friends to lovers story with unforgettable characters and a solid romance, don't miss this!

If I were a cartoon reading MR. O, my thought bubble would say something like, "hummana hummana hummana…"
Nick Hammer has dedicated his life to the craft. Oh, sure, giving women the big O may not seem like something to build your life around, but Nick has made a very awesome career as the artist behind the hit Comedy Nation show, The Adventures of Mister Orgasm. There's no woman in NYC who's safe from Nick's talent, but the one he wants, his best friend's sister Harper Holiday, is most decidedly off limits. Magician Harper has been the star of Nick's wet dreams since pulling a hot prank on her brother, and spending time with her only seems to make it worse. Especially when Harper asks him to be her dating coach, since she's officially Princess Awkward around men! Nick can't get his dirty filthy mind off of the red headed temptress for even a minute, and once they cross the line, there's no turning back. Both of them know that their time together has an expiration date, that their affair will have to end when Harper's brother returns from his honeymoon. But what happens if they can't let each other go?
Jeese-O-Petes, how the hell does Ms. Blakely get into a dude's head and create such smutty, sexy goodness?!? Nick is a serial monogamist, and with his talents, looks and generous charm, he's damn irresistible to women. Harper, seriously. I'm in lust with her myself! I've never read a book with an MC who makes a living as a magician, and her attitude and persona makes me want to be her BFF for realz!!
I loved the banter between Nick and Harper, their playful back and forth was both funny and sooooo sexy!! Ms. Blakely's erotic humor is top notch, every line thoughtfully crafted to elicit shit-eating grins, belly laughs, smirking groans and understanding head nods.
When they finally hook up…per. fection. It's dirty and sweet and raunchy and loving and wicked and decadent, it's a friends to lovers story at its finest. It's not everyday where an author makes you sad that you don't know their characters in real life, but MR. O and the previous stand alone story featuring Harper's brother, Big Rock, feature a group of NYC friends that I'm in love with. I seriously can't wait for Nick's twin Wyatt's story, Well Hung (how brilliant are these freakin' titles!?).
Bottom Line: I recommend this book be read in private with a bottle of wine and some extra batteries. Trust me on this one!
