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....
I loved this book! At first, I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy it as much as the preceding book (Big Rock), but I think I actually liked the main characters in this one better. Nick and Harper’s romance is super sweet and incredibly sexy. I just loved watching them fall for each other.
We first met Nick and Harper in Big Rock. Nick is the best friend of Spencer, the hero of that book, and Harper is Spencer’s sister. While it’s not necessary to read the previous book, this one is more enjoyable if you’ve read both.
Nick is the artist and mastermind behind Mister Orgasm, an animated show for adults that airs on the Comedy Nation network. It’s a cheeky, popular cartoon and very successful for Nick, making him famous among ladies and fanboys alike. Harper is a magician (how cool is that?) who normally performs at children’s parties. It’s a unique job and one that she loves.
Harper and Nick are close friends, having known each other since high school on account of Nick and Spencer’s friendship. But although they share a mutual flirtation, they’ve never pursued anything more because of the whole “best friend’s sibling” thing. When Spencer and his new bride Charlotte leave for their honeymoon, Harper decides to enlist Nick’s help in the dating department. Harper doesn’t have a ton of experience with guys, so she asks Nick to school her in the ways of dating. Their mutual interest quickly escalates into a hot fling that’s originally intended to be temporary. But of course, their chemistry and attraction result in much more.
I loved the banter between Harper and Nick. As always, the author excels at writing hilarious dialogue. The two of them are such a cute pair, especially since they’re both slightly geeky in many ways but not to the point where the quirkiness is overdone.
The romance elements are seriously sexy. There’s a nice buildup to the sexual relationship that feels believable since Harper and Nick have known each other for a while. They work up gradually to the change in their relationship.
There’s some very mild drama in the subplot, but it’s resolved quickly and doesn’t distract from the overall lighthearted tone of the book.
As I mentioned, I think I like Nick and Harper as a couple more than Spencer and Charlotte from the previous book, just because this romance felt more natural to me. Also, Nick is much more likable, in my opinion, because he’s such a sweetheart. As much as I liked Spencer, he was super cocky and a bit much at times. Not so with Nick.
I read the audio version of this book, which (like the previous book) is narrated by Sebastian York. He’s a really great narrator and the listening experience flew by for me.
Overall, this is a fun, lighthearted, and sexy read that I definitely recommend.
