Mister O by Lauren Blakely: Release Blitz Review, Excerpt & Giveaway


Blurb:

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**

Excerpt:

“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?”

FUCK, YES.

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.

Review by Yvette:

It seems like every time I finish a book by Lauren Blakely I think to myself, this book…this one is my new favorite. Because it’s true. Every time. Lauren Blakely has a distinctive ability to write consistently amazing stories with heat, heart, and characters you can’t help but love. The author’s newest male-POV rom-com, Mister O, is yet another instant favorite with its lighthearted, humorous feel, blush-inducing love scenes, and a bit of a forbidden romance. Mister O should come with a warning: "will cause spontaneous combustion" or maybe "prepare to become obsessed with a fictional character". Either warning will suffice although neither quite conveys the extreme levels of sexiness you are guaranteed to experience while reading this book.

The best-friend’s-sister trope is a personal favorite, which is undoubtedly why I was rooting for the pairing of protagonists, Nick Hammer and Harper Holiday, while reading Big Rock. The set-up for Mister O is fairly straightforward, with Harper requesting advice for her inability to interact with the opposite sex. What makes the narrative so compelling is the connection between Nick and Harper – the teasing, playful banter between them, made effortless by years of friendship. Nick is a complex man with simple tastes, all of which revolve around sex, which makes him the perfect tutor for Harper. Being narrated through Nick's POV, Harper is shown through his eyes, which portray her as a quirky, sarcastic, sexy super heroine in a magician's cape. Readers get to know both characters throughout the book, but I particularly appreciated the text conversations between them because they provide an insight into Harper's character that we wouldn't otherwise get with a single-person narrative.

Considering Nick has sex on his mind 99.9% of the time, I was pleasantly surprised that his and Harper's romance was a bit of a slow burn. I was honestly impressed that Nick didn't jump Harper's bones the second she proposed he act as her dating coach and vice versa considering the insanely steamy chemistry between them. The coaching is just a front for the erotic, sensual waltz they engage in, their flirtatious comments and thinly-veiled sexual innuendos ratcheting up the heat level to off-the-charts. The anticipation is almost unbearable, but for the deliciously naughty fantasies inhabiting Nick's overactive imagination. The first half of the book is pretty much an extended act of foreplay so that, by the time their relationship progresses to sealing the deal, I was desperately in need of some smelling salts (or the 21st century equivalent) to rouse me from my puddle of swoon.

Typically, I prefer reading books in alternating perspectives but delving into the mind of Nick, a.k.a. the self-proclaimed expert at pleasuring women in the bedroom, is such an entertaining experience that I positively devoured this book. Nick is confident and all-knowing when it comes to sex but, when it comes to emotions, he's adorably clueless, and it was definitely entertaining watching him navigate his budding feelings for Harper. Mister O is, of course, incredibly erotic, but it’s also sugary sweet and charmingly romantic. If you're looking for a book that's heavy on the romance and light on the angst, Mister O is the perfect 5 Star pick-me-up.
