About 4 years ago, I planted a mock-orange Blossom (sweet-smelling!) bush for the aroma, but I have yet to see a single flower on it. I live in Ohio, the bush is planted close to the house facing east, so it gets at least 1/2 day sun. How can I get it to bloom? It also needs shaping, but I'm afraid to cut off anything that might produce flowers.

Have you fertilized it? You can fertilize in either spring or fall? They should be pruned sparingly. If you prune them too much, the leaves will be smaller with less blooms. They can stand part shade, so your location shouldn't be a problem. Some shrubs do take years to bloom. Maybe you just need to be patient.

The normal time for pruning a shrub that blooms is right after flowering. Since it hasn't bloomed, I would wait until fall.
