Author: Brooke Blaine
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 30, 2017
SynopsisAs 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.

P.I.T.A. is book 3 in the L.A. Liaisons series by Brooke Blake, while it could technically be read as a standalone, you'll truly be missing out if you don't read Licked and Hooker.
Paige Iris Traynor-Ashcroft, aka P.I.T.A, and Richard "Dirty Dick" Dawson, were best friends growing up until an incident when they were in college turned them into frenemies. However, there's this underlying attraction between them that all of Paige's best friends see, but that she refuses to give into. Until they coincide in Vegas for her parents' anniversary and sometimes, not all that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
I loved Dawson! We'd gotten glimpses of him in the previous books, but I had no clue what I was getting into when I started P.I.T.A. I have to say that for a book told entirely from one of the character's POV (Paige's), Brooke Blaine did a fantastic job in showing us who Dawson really was and damn, if he wasn't dreamy. I loved how relentless and stubborn he was in pursuing Paige, because really, otherwise, we wouldn't have gotten anywhere. LOL Paige was awesome and it was lovely getting to know her more in-depth. She was kickass, but at the same time had this hidden vulnerability that endeared her to me.
From the flashbacks from when they were younger to the present, it was obvious Paige and Dawson were perfect for each other. The sexual tension between them was thick enough to cut with a knife, their chemistry was magnetic and the sex was hotter than hot!
While I've loved the previous books in the series, I think Paige and Dawson are my new favorite couple. I also adored that we got to catch up with Ryleigh, Shayne, Quinn and even Ace and I'm looking forward to Quinn's story and finding out why she's all mysterious all the time.
The book was fun, engaging, sexy, romantic, angsty and Brooke Blaine made me go through an emotional rollercoaster while reading it. It was an unputdownable story that I'm sure I'll read again and again. Definitely a must-read!

About Brooke BlaineYou 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.
