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 know me, then you probably know that Sebastian York is my top favorite male audiobook narrator ever. I fell in love with his voice back when I first listened to Dirty Rowdy Thing, and after numerous other audiobooks of his, I’ve come to the conclusion that his deep, smooth voice is like no other. He does the male POV so well, and he was just perfect as the voice of Nick Hammer. Plus, Nick and Harper’s story was just plain adorable. It’s a sweet, funny, sexy audiobook, and if you’re a fan of listening to romantic comedies, Mister O will be perfect for you!

Harper is off-limits to Nick. She’s Nick’s best friend’s little sister, and Spencer would kill Nick if he ever did anything non-platonic with her. But lately, Nick can’t seem to stop thinking about her, can’t stop being tempted by her – his attraction to her only grows as they spend more time together while Spencer’s off on his honeymoon. So when Harper asks for some lessons on how to seduce a man, how can Nick say no? And what happens when genuine feelings start to develop?

Nick and Harper are two of the most fascinating characters I’ve ever met. Nick, with his sexual prowess, hot tatted bod, and hipster glasses, is sexy nerd personified. He’s a well-known cartoonist, the creator of The Adventures of Mister Orgasm, and let’s just say he’s as well-versed in doling out those orgasms as his character is. Our heroine Harper is a freaking MAGICIAN. A magician! How many female magicians have I come across in the romances I read? That would be none, so to say I was excited about Harper’s character would be an understatement. Harper is a blast – she’s sassy, awkward, sweet, and all-around a fun, relatable heroine.

Harper and Nick are on fire together! Seriously, this audiobook was hot. But what I loved about Mister O wasn’t just the intense chemistry between the main characters – I also loved how much they made me laugh. Harper and Nick are wonderful and hilarious together, and the secondary characters cracked me up as well. Mister O is a seriously fun listen, with Sebastian York as the perfect narrator. Lauren Blakely delivers a well-rounded contemporary romance, and I can’t recommend this enough for rom-com lovers.

Release Day Review: Big Rock by Lauren Blakely

Big Rock by Lauren Blakely
Series: Big Rock Standalone (full reading order below)
Publication Date: January 6th 2016

It’s not just the motion of the ocean, ladies. It’s definitely the SIZE of the boat too.

And I’ve got both firing on all cylinders. In fact, I have ALL the right assets. Looks, brains, my own money, and a big c&$k.

You might think I’m an as%*$le. I sound like one, don’t I? I’m hot as sin, rich as heaven, smart as hell and hung like a horse.

Guess what? You haven’t heard my story before. Sure, I might be a playboy, like the NY gossip rags call me. But I’m the playboy who’s actually a great guy. Which makes me one of a kind.

The only trouble is, my dad needs me to cool it for a bit. With conservative investors in town wanting to buy his flagship Fifth Avenue jewelry store, he needs me not only to zip it up, but to look the part of the committed guy. Fine. I can do this for Dad. After all, I’ve got him to thank for the family jewels. So I ask my best friend and business partner to be my fiancée for the next week. Charlotte’s up for it. She has her own reasons for saying yes to wearing this big rock.

And pretty soon all this playing pretend in public leads to no pretending whatsoever in the bedroom, because she just can’t fake the kind of toe-curling, window-shattering orgasmic cries she makes as I take her to new heights between the sheets.

But I can’t seem to fake that I might be feeling something real for her.

What the hell have I gotten myself into with this…big rock?

This was the sweetest book ever! I was hoping to get something better than a typical manwhore hero story, and Lauren Blakely certainly delivered. This is actually the first book I’ve read by her, but it won’t be my last. I adored this romantic comedy of a book – if you’re looking for something light, quick, sexy, and sweet, I highly recommend Big Rock.

I love, love, looove friends to lovers romances, so I just couldn’t resist reading Big Rock. I was a little hesitant about Spencer being a manwhore, but his character got rid of my doubts quickly and I absolutely loved him from the start. Even as he has his fun with women, he respects them and treats them well. But the number of women he’s slept with is getting him into trouble for the first time – so what does he do? Pretends he’s engaged to his best friend and business partner, Charlotte.

Spencer and Charlotte have never crossed the friendship line, but with this fake engagement, the chemistry between them skyrockets until all Spencer can see is Charlotte. This gorgeous, funny, incredible woman has been right under his nose the whole time, and now Spencer can’t help but want more between them.

My heart trips over itself in a race to get closer to her.
Something is happening. Something strange and completely foreign. My heart is speaking a language I don’t understand as it tries to fling itself at Charlotte.
Great. Now, that’s two organs I have to do battle with every day.

This is the perfect light-hearted read if you’re in the mood for it. Big Rock is written entirely in Spencer’s POV, which I loved. He’s so funny and charming, you can’t help but love him. Charlotte is perfect with him – you can tell that even when they’re faking an engagement, the two of them are meant to be together for real. Their romance was a delight to read and I highly recommend it for romcom lovers!

I’ve broken the biggest ground rule of all.
I’ve fallen in love with my best friend.
