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....
If you've read Big Rock before you might know the main character of this book, which is Nick Hammer, Spencer Holiday's best friend. Nick is a successful artist, he is the creator of the late night cartoon sensation Mister Orgasm and besides creating a show with that title. He is also a self-proclaimed Mister O himself, which means that when it comes to making a woman get an orgasm then he is your man.

This book follows the story of Nick Hammer and Harper Holiday. Nick has been recruited by Harper to be her "love guru". Harper is kind of not able to compose herself around a guy that she likes, she's unable to speak and she babbles. She also tends to make the wrong moves dating-wise. During the time Nick teaches everything he knows about dating to Harper things started to develop into a lot more than just teaching about dating. They started having sex with each other and calling it a teaching moment as well, a lesson in sex. It was all ok at first because it was just Nick teaching Harper about dating and sex, and Harper learning all about dating and sex.

But we all know what happens next. Being friends with benefits is not enough because they started developing feelings for each other and the big question is can they be together? With the fact that Harper is Spencer's little sister and Spencer is Nick's best friend. Things are bound to get complicated.
“Any guy who thinks he automatically knows how to please a woman is a conceited ass. Every woman is one of a kind. Every woman has her own titillations and turn-ons."
To be honest, I liked this one less that Big Rock. Don't get me wrong, I still liked it but I had some issues with it that just I couldn't get past but before we get into the parts of me not liking this book as much as its predecessor, I'm going to point out some things that I liked about it.

First up, same as the other book, I like the chemistry between the two main characters. Harper and Nick I think is kind of made for one another because they are essentially kind of like the same person divided into two gender. They like the same things, they clicked in conversations and have this weird and slightly disturbing inside jokes. By now we can all agree that Lauren Blakely can create believable chemistry between characters. The other thing that I like about this book is of course (again) same as the other book in the same universe as this book, which is the love proclamation scene. Dang it! Lauren Blakely can write a great grand romantic gesture scene that just make you get the feels!

Now moving on to the thing that I was disappointed about in this book. The voice of Nick Hammer at times is similar to Spencer and this is a big NO for me. Of course there are some traits that differentiate Nick and Spencer, like the fact that Nick is like a genuine good guy and Spencer was kind of a womanizer but the voice of Nick's head and Spencer's head to me is kind of the same. Especially the "when I am thinking about sex part" it's like both of them share the same perverted brain. This might not be a problem for some readers but to me it is, it lessens my enjoyment in reading this book and it's kind of made me feel like I was reading the same book but with different characters.

The point is that I'm kind of disappointed with this book because I really liked Big Rock and I had high hopes for this book. On the other hand, even though I was disappointed with this book, Lauren Blakely is going to write about other people in this universe. I'm kind of looking forward to those books as I am not giving up hope on Lauren Blakely but I am lowering my expectations on her next book(s).

That's all for now!
