REVIEW – P.I.T.A. (L.A. Liaisons #3) by Brooke Blaine



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.

*****Mel’s Review*****

5 Stars!


Paige Iris Traynor-Ashcroft is a gorgeous single 29 yr. old woman living in California. She has fabulous friends & is one of the top wedding coordinators/ party planners in Los Angeles. While Paige plans everyone else’s happily-ever-afters, she doesn’t really believe in monogamy for herself. She’s a pessimist when it comes to love, romance, and marriage. She didn’t have the best role models with her parents growing up, so she just didn’t have faith in lasting relationships & finding something real.


Paige attends a family function in Las Vegas & runs into her frenemy, Richard Dawson. Paige & Richard’s parents are friends & Richard’s family lived next door to Paige growing up. They were the best of friends since they were little & then things changed in college and they grew apart. Now they can’t be in a room together without always fighting for dominance and trying to one-up each other.

Richard is a total manwhore who drives Paige crazy & pushes all her buttons, but he’s also drop dead gorgeous. When circumstances put Paige in close quarters with Richard, she has trouble not seriously lusting after him, & wondering if there could be more between them than pent up sexual frustration. Could the boy she once loved still be inside this beautiful arrogant man she finds herself desperately wanting to touch.


-Good God, the man was beautiful.

-There was no denying that if a perfect male specimen lived, Richard Dawson was pretty damn near close.

-I could touch him like this. Freely because I wanted to.

I loved everything about this book! Pure Brooke Blaine gold! I was hooked on this couple and their chemistry & sparring in the last book. In this one, Paige shows a more vulnerable side & we learn about their past together. We also find out how crazy Richard has always been about Paige. This book was funny, sexy, & this man was sinfully delicious! Loved this book start to finish! Just fabulous!!!
