Title: Mister O
Reviewer: @Michelle6803 & @PoisonIvy70
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: 306 pages
Rating: 4 stars
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 the hell 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 dirty sexts. Okay, a few hundred. Or if the zipper on her dress gets stuck. Not on that! Or if she gives me those f*&k-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.
Looks like the real Adventures of Mister Orgasm have only just begun….
**MISTER O is a standalone romantic comedy and it follows supporting characters first introduced in BIG ROCK**
Michelle: Welcome to the Michelle and Ivy show. So let’s get this party shall we? I met Nick Hammer in Big Rock. Ivy, hasn’t had the “pleasure”, pun intended, of meeting Nick beforehand due to her “mountain” of books on her TBR. If you haven’t read Big Rock, that’s ok too. All of these books are standalones. Before I continue, may I say what a great f&cking name the main male character has, Nick Hammer! And yes all the innuendos and then some. I couldn’t wait for Nick’s book after the practical joke he and Spencer’s sister, Harper, played on Spencer. Oh but the plot thickens because the joke’s on Nick since he has been having very inappropriate thoughts regarding his best friend’s little sister. Ah and the perpetual “bro-code”, don’t mess with best friend’s lil sis or you get your eyebrows dyed and hair shaved!
Ivy: Our very own show! I feel like we should at least have some pyrotechnics or something, to set this off right.
Hmmm….maybe not. Anyhoodle, let’s do this. Well, unlike my lucky Mick, I hadn’t met Nick Hammer before (yes Big Rock is on my mountainous TBR, which with that title…*really wants to make porny joke here* *blinks* nah, too easy. I digress). I certainly got to know him very well in Mister O, considering the entire book is from his POV. Male POV in romances are hit or miss, but I think Ms. Blakely managed to strike just the right tone with Nick. His inner voice felt genuinely male, adorably nerdy and his obsession with Harper was sexy yet still romantic. #hotandnerdy And Harper? She rocked, right?
Michelle: I adored Harper. Not only is beautiful, sexy and smart, but she’s a magician! She has some quirks and some awkwardness that makes her even more appealing in my opinion. I especially loved all the Princess nicknames Nick would give Harper. Princess Awkward and Clueless were spot on. She asks Nick to help her with her awkwardness and cluelessness in the dating world. Hey what can go wrong with this scenario?
Ivy: *giggles* I did love that Nick thought that they could just have sex, then go back to being friends. And he dated a romance writer? LOL.
Nick’s cluelessness regarding Harper’s feelings, but being in tune with her physically was all sorts of cute and the sexy is yes, ridiculously hot. The Hammer?
Michelle: Nick really lives up to his nickname that’s for sure, especially with Harper. “I suppose that makes me the Magellan of the female orgasm”. Yeah what started off as something really friendly, random normal texts turned into dirty sexts! Sexy times with these two individuals, holy smokes!!!! Just thinking about now typing this review, I am blushing (not).
Ivy: Hey, I’m a delicate flower….*cracks up* yeah I can’t even type that with a straight face. The texts were great (though it seems to be a trend, the sexting between leads lately, or maybe it’s just me). I think there’s a good balance between the sexy, the funny and the emotional component. I believed in their history, their connection and their chemistry and it made it all work for me. I thought it was pretty funny, though I would have loved even one chapter from Harper’s POV. I was really happy to see that this works as a standalone for those of us who hadn’t read Big Rock first.
Michelle: Mister O did not disappoint, although funny and sexy, it wasn’t as funny as Big Rock and that’s ok. I knew I was going to like Nick after reading Charlotte and Spencer’s romance and I was right. Plus I too have a soft spot for nerdy, good looking guys with glasses. The biggest turn on is that he is a cartoonist, hello Mister Orgasm! I was a little nervous at first with the deal Nick and Harper made, but pleasantly surprised with the outcome. Guess what, Well Hung is based on Nick’s fraternal twin brother Wyatt!!!
There you go – a solid read, we really liked Mister O and we’re both looking forward to seeing how well hung Wyatt is. If you’re into funny, sexy, nerdy love stories, check out Mister O, on sale May 2!

*An ARC was received for an honest review.
“You’re good, Nick. You know just what to do and how to behave. This is why you attract women in droves.”
I kind of want to protest. I feel like she has this impression of me that I don’t necessarily want her to have, but I’m not sure how to deflect this. “Because I have a gift?”
“That and several other reasons.” She waves broadly at my arms. It’s October, but it’s not chilly tonight so I don’t have a jacket on. “First, there are the arms. All that ink and muscle.”
She roams her eyes over my biceps. “I mean, your ink is awesome,” she says, pointing to the shapes and swirls I designed myself. The tattoos are abstract lines and curves, but inside them there’s a sun, a moon, and stars, because those were the first things I realized I was good at drawing.
“Then, the body. Mr. Men’s Health-I’m-so-fit,” she says in this mocking tone, but it’s not me she’s making fun of. It’s the article.
“You read it?”
“I read everything. I devour information,” she says, and we’re right back to that place I seem to inhabit with her, where she compliments me, but she could be saying it like I’m a car she’s considering buying. And this one has one hundred seventy horsepower.
“And then, there’s your face, and you have all this awesome scruff on it.”
I run a hand over my jaw, and the neat, trim beard that’s like an additional sex toy I can bring to the bedroom. “Chicks dig the beard,” I say, with a lopsided grin.
“I bet they do,” she says under her breath. She doesn’t say anything else right away. She presses her teeth into the corner of her lip and then speaks, more softly than before. “Can I feel it?”
She raises her hand and touches my jaw. My breath hitches as she runs her thumb across the light bristles. I’m keenly aware of every second that passes, one ticking into the next as she touches me, stroking my jawline like she’s mesmerized by the texture.
“Soft,” she whispers, almost in wonder as she stares at my chin. My heart starts hammering, and I fight to stay still. When she says, “But kind of hard, too,” I swear, I don’t know how I manage not to cup her cheeks, back her up against the stone wall, and just kiss the hell out of her. Kiss, touch, grind, and then some. I want to yank that lush body against mine, let her feel how much she turns me on, and find out if I do the same thing to her. The way her breath barely catches sends my mind spinning and lust spiraling tight in me. I can’t help but hope she wants what I do, and it feels like she could, going by the way she touches my face. It truly fucking does, and maybe that’s why her name takes shape in my throat like a warning.
So she knows she’s playing with fire if she touches me like this again.
