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.
Talk about a pick-me-up. P.I.T.A. is a wonderful, hilarious standalone addition to Brooke Blaine’s L.A. Liaisons series.
Paige Iris Traynor-Ashcroft, fondly called Pita by her friends, has always seemed like one of the most interesting, impulsive, and ballsy characters in the series. Okay, so she might be a huge Pain In The Ass sometimes. She’s an independent firecracker with a wicked sense of humor, a foul mouth, confident sexuality, and no filter. Basically, she’s my kind of gal. It’s ironic that she’s a wedding planner who is skeptical about marriage.
Paige has a mysteriously intense lust/hate relationship with her former childhood best friend, Richard James “Dirty Dick” Dawson. Her not-so-affectionate nickname for him comes from the fact that he is an indiscriminate manwhore. We don’t know what started their feud but when things come to a head, their animosity and her stubbornness create some hysterical one-upmanship and a ton of chemistry.
I loved Dawson and his patient heart. Paige is a lovable hoot, even though I became borderline frustrated when her outbursts last a bit too long.
Brooke Blaine has a knack for writing delightful stories filled with irreverent humor, romance, and unique characters. P.I.T.A. provides the perfect canvas to show off her rom-com chops. This is a fun read to have on hand when you’re looking for a lighthearted diversion. I’m ready for the next book!
