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.

Just when I thought that Brooke’s writing couldn’t get any better, she releases another book that exceeds my expectations! I loved the first two books in the L.A. Liaisons but P.I.T.A. was so much more and different. This book was angsty, emotional, captivating, and a total page turner. Once I started I didn’t want to put it down for anything until I completely finished it! I loved the whole friends to enemies to lovers theme which was much different than the other books in the series.
Paige Iris Traynor-Ashcroft is a kickass wedding planner who ironically enough doesn’t believe in marriage for herself. She is one of the most stubborn hard headed people who will speak whatever is on her mind without a care to who’s listening and you definitely don’t want to cross her when she is on one of her tirades. I loved her character and how spirited and sassy she was. She was definitely up for any challenge thrown at her. It was treat to get to know her more and I loved her no filter attitude.
Richard “Dirty-Dick” Dawson is cocky, smooth, and slick with his moves. Whereas Paige has no filter whatsoever and says whatever pops into her head, Dawson knows when to speak and when not to and definitely knows just the perfect way to shut Paige up as well. Just like Paige he is up for the challenge and that’s exactly what he gets when it comes to his pita.
Paige and Dawson grew up as children of privilege and next door neighbors to one another which started their friendship bond. But something along the way soured that bond and made them the hard headed, spitfire people that they were to one another. But what happens when that blazing hot rage turns to crazy unexplainable lust?! Not love…That would be crazy considering their stance on monogamy, right?!
I absolutely loved the back and forth banter between these two!! Their banter hilarious and their quick witted comebacks had me laughing throughout the whole book. This book was told entirely in Paige’s POV and I would have loved to have at least a little bit of Dawson’s POV to see what he was thinking at times and a little bit more background about how their friendship started. I loved everything about this book and Dawson & Paige’s dynamic. I loved getting to see all the side characters from previous books, such as, Ryleigh, Shayne, Quinn, and Ace!!! I seriously cannot recommend this book and this whole series enough!!! If you haven’t one-clicked yet, what the heck are you waiting for?! And I cannot wait to get Quinn’s book because she is still much a mystery to me! But seriously, buy this book right now!!!

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.
