Review of Mister O by Lauren Blakely

 The bit on the back...

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.
Looks like the real Adventures of Mister O have only just begun....

The first book I read of Lauren’s was Big Rock which comes before Mister O. Mister O features Big Rock main character Spencer’s sister and his best friend Nick.

Nick is the geeky version of Spencer but other than his love of comics, Harry Potter and his glasses they are very similar. He loves women and makes no attempt to hide the fact. When Spencer’s sister Harper asks him for relationship advice all of Nick’s Christmases have come at once.

As Nick and Harper have friends for a long time they have a natural chemistry and it is easy to see that they would make a great couple, even though Nick is reluctant because of his friendship with Spencer. Together they are explosive and Nick loves to please Harper and to explore her sexuality with her. The story is told entirely from Nick’s POV, just as Big Rock was told entirely from Spencer’s POV which sets these stories apart from anything else at the minute. I love the male POV because it feels like a sneaky peek when you’re reading it and Lauren gives Nick a believable voice in the story.

I think you can guess from pretty early on what’s going to happen with the characters and although I kept waiting for the inevitable conversation Nick was going to have with Spencer I was pleasantly surprised how the story panned out.

This is a classic friends to lovers storyline which is one of my favourites to read. If you’re looking for more books with this storyline I can recommend Samantha Young’s Before Jamaica Lane and Christina Lauren’s Beautiful Player.
