Title: P.I.T.A. (L.A. Liaisons, #3)
Author: Brooke Blaine
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 30, 2017
As one of the most prestigious wedding coordinators in Los Angeles, Paige Iris Traynor-Ashcroft is known for being classy, elegant, and the orchestrator of many happily-ever-afters.
But in the words of Paige herself: “What a crock of shiitake.”
Known affectionately (or not) as P.I.T.A. to those closest to her, she’s never been one to buy into the whole monogamy thing for herself. Sure, her BFFs are getting picked off by Cupid one by one, but his arrows have nothing on her semiautomatic.
Richard “Dick” Dawson does his best to live up to his name. A long-time frenemy and manwhore extraordinaire, he thrives on pushing limits, pushing up skirts—and pushing every single one of Paige’s buttons. He’s the itch she can’t scratch, and doesn’t want to. Or does she?
What happens when blazing-hot rage turns to crazy, unexplainable lust? Surely not…love? Because that would just be a total P.I.T.A.

Since being introduced to the four best friends in Licked, in first book in Brooke Blaine’s L.A. Liaisons series, Paige Iris Traynor-Ashcroft, or P.I.T.A, has been upfront with her jaded attitude when it comes to love and marriage, and even though her profession as a wedding planner seems like a conflict of interest due to her disdain for the very thing she helps create and organize for her clients, it also seems like her job might actually help her to see past her anti-marriage stance and secretly enjoy making couples’ dreams come true, even if it she refuses to believe that she’ll ever walk down the aisle herself.
At the end of Hooker, Blaine teased readers with Paige’s volatile relationship with long-time frenemy, Dawson, and while it was clear that they challenged each other and lived to make each other’s lives difficult, there was also an undeniable magnetic connection between them, so I was anxiously anticipating the fireworks that were headed readers way when P.I.T.A.’s story was told and boy did Blaine deliver one hell of a show!
Paige is definitely one badass bitch, and she owns up to her cool demeanor and her man-eating ways. With her twisted sense of humor and her crass remarks, she definitely stands out in a crowd, and while she lives her life on her own terms, enjoying the company of men and the orgasms they give her, her warped perspective on relationships stems from her non-existent relationship with her parents and the heartache from the few “committed” relationships she had before she took it upon herself to guard her heart and never fall for anyone who could let her down again.
Dawson is a wildcard in P.I.T.A.’s life. They lived next door to each other, growing up as best friends, but somewhere along the way, Paige decided to no longer be friends with Dawson, creating the hot/cold interactions that they now have, and while they definitely love pushing each other’s buttons and swapping barbs, there is an undeniable undertone of sexual attraction that surfaces when Paige and Dawson find themselves in one crazy situation, making it impossible for them to pretend to hate each other and for Paige to forget about Dirty Dick Dawson and his 9 and a half inch cock.
Paige and Dawson’s story was such an entertaining read, partly due to the fact that I never knew what was going to come out of her mouth next and partly because it was easy to see how she and Dawson kept circling around each other, trying to figure out what the other person’s endgame was but never realizing that when it was all said and done that they’d find themselves exactly where they needed and wanted to be.
Brooke Blaine writes fantastic romantic comedies and this frenemy to lover’s story will have readers shaking their heads at Paige’s inability to see what’s right in front of her while also rooting for a walk down the aisle from the woman who said that marriage just wasn’t for her.

About Brooke Blaine
You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her ‘quiet time.’ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.
Brooke enjoys writing sassy contemporary romance, whether in the form of comedy, suspense, or erotica. The latter has scarred her conservative Southern family for life, bless their hearts.
If you’d like to get in touch with her, she’s easy to find – just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that’s dominated her cell phone for ten years.
