Review – ‘Mr. OH’ by Vonnie Davis

Blurb

He doesn't do emotions...She's all about them.
Dental hygienist by day and a tattoo artist by night, Jazmine "Jazz" Archer is known for her penchant for flair and her sassy attitude. She estimates her wealth by her beloved family and friends. When a cancelled flight leaves her stuck at a hotel with a super-stuffy but outrageously gorgeous businessman who threatens her with a spanking, she's surprised to realize the submissive she suppressed so long ago is begging her to take him up on his offer.
Self-made billionaire Blake O’Hearn is as conservative as they come. He sure as hell shouldn't be attracted to the flamboyant female with voluptuous curves and curls that dance when she talks. But behind her bold manner lies a submissive crying for attention, and the Dom in him aches to give it to her. The only thing he can't give her is love.


Review

After surviving a bad D/s relationship with an abusive man, Jazmin Archer has sworn off all men, especially Doms, so she never expected the intense attraction she felt for Blake, or that he would set out to make her his sub.
Blake O’Hearn lives his life and runs his shipping business through rigid control, and though the spunky, brassy submissive isn’t his usual type, she intrigues him and challenges him to reevaluate his life and choices, right down to what color clothes he wears. Though he desperately wants her as only a Dom could want a sub, he intends to give her time to adjust to his D/s lifestyle, but his need for control seem to constantly clash with her trust issues and her desire to love and be loved in return.
Jazmin and Blake are wonderful people. She’s so strong and loves with her whole heart, and it’s so easy for the reader to relate to her. Blake hides from his own personal demons, but he’s honest with himself about his limitations when it comes to love and relationships. The sex between them was super hot, but since Blake is closed off from his emotions and Jazz can’t help but express hers, their mutual stubbornness and lack of communication often hurt each other and created emotional drama. I definitely teared up a few times and wanted to shake some sense into Blake. I love it when books can draw me in like that.
Jazmin’s family and best friend Amy, as well as Blake’s friends, Chicago and Sylvia, added a lot of depth to the story, and those friendships further developed the H/h’s back-stories and characterization. It’s great when minor characters contribute to the overall plot, and aren’t just fluff or window dressing.
The story is told in duel first-person POV, so the reader can get inside both the H/h’s heads. Though the book is an erotic BDSM romance, it’s not heavy into the Dominance/submission and Master/slave lifestyle. For readers who are new to reading BDSM books, this is a great one to try. I really enjoyed it and would like to read more books from the author.
