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

I absolutely loved P.I.T.A. and read it in one day. This series is bloody amazing and each instalment sucks you in from the very first page. Brooke Blaine writes characters that I really get. The heroines are quirky, strong and independent.

Each book shows a woman who works hard and doesn’t expect handouts. These women have an unbelievably strong bond of friendship with each other. In this instalment, we meet Pita aka Pain In The Ass or Paige

Paige is one of the best party planners around and has done many weddings in her line of work. But as much as she loves seeing everything she's planned come together and watch the happy brides walk down the aisle, she has no desire to do that herself. In her mind marriage is nothing more than a business transaction, and no one can dissuade her of that thinking.

Enter Richard "Dirty Dick" Dawson, her one time best friend and now hated frenemy. He's the man Paige can't seem to shake no matter how

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 & fin

A delightfully hilarious frienemies to lovers story that had me giggling and blushing all the way through.

Paige Iris Taylor-Ashcroft or Pita and Richard “Dick” Dawson has a long history together. They’re friends growing up and then frenemies until a reckless, goldschläger-laden night in Vegas when Dick and Pita found themselves giving in to the sizzling chemistry between them.

What I love about this book and this series in particular is how heroine-centric it is. This is Paige’s story.

Well I do, so much in fact because not only are you a genuine individual but you have gifted and treated your readers to a romantic comedy that was an absolute gem.

Paige’s story was anything but a ‘pain in the ass’ to read. In fact, this was some “one-sitting reading” right here, folks. I couldn’t put it down and I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face the entire time. I am a huge fan of this series, but this one takes the cake as my favorite.

I've been waiting so long for Paige's story. I loved the two previous books in the L.A. Liaisons series Licked and Hooker. Paige and Richard aka P.I.T.A and Dick have been competing with each other for so long and their history goes way back. They've know one another since they were kids and used to be best friends.

What can I say! I simply loved and enjoyed this story so much. First off I love the girls Paige, Shayne, Ryleigh and Quinn's friendship. They are so honest, supportive and hilarious 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

We all remember Paige from the previous books. She's the wedding planner in that group of slightly crazy girlfriends. ☺

But she hates everything marriage. Her parents are the number one proof of how horribly married life can be. Paige wants nothing to do with it. And she also just kind of freaked out at her parents 30th anniversary party in Vegas!

Now she's getting drunk with her childhood best friend Dawson - who's been hired as her babysitter by his parents!

P.I.T.A. is a sassy and sexy frenemies-to-lovers story to add to the always delightful L.A. Liaisons series.

Throughout the series, Paige Iris Traynor-Ashcroft (AKA pain in the ass, P.I.T.A.) has butted heads with Richard “Dirty Dick” Dawson. Their chemistry has always been palpable, with plenty of playful banter and lots of competitive one-upmanship, it was an explosive coupling just waiting to happen, and finally their story is here.

“How the hell was I going to tell the girls?”

Brooke Blaine knows how to write Rom Com, every single book in this series has had me in stitches, with tears of laughter as well as the warm and fluffies that a good romance generates and P.I.T.A is no different.

P.I.T.A. has many meanings, the most common being Pain in The Ass as our heroine is so loving referred to throughout this book, but P.I.T.A is also her initials…her parents must have

This is a great romantic comedy series. And this book was another great edition to this series. It's full of romantic feels and humor--just a whole lot of fun to read!

But... I wanted more of Paige and Dawson as a couple. And I didn't think Dawson's character was fleshed out enough. I can't even remember if he had a job or not - weird.
I was a total L.A. Liaisons virgin when I picked up P.I.T.A. and I gotta say...Brooke Blaine writes romantic comedy like a BOSS! The cherry has been popped my friends, and I will definitely be going back for MORE!

These characters were just SO GREAT together! Paige was just a freaking firecracker and Dawson was the perfect calm to Paige's storm. The sexy and feisty banter was just EVERYTHING in P.I.T.A.

Paige and Richard have been frenemies since they were younger. They have just the right amount of chemistry that will have you salivating. Their witty banter and playfulness is absolutely perfect.

I LOVE this LA Liaisons series by Brooke Blaine. She is such an amazing writer, and her writing feels effortlessly funny. Nothing about the banter feels forced, it feels real and like it was said out loud by strangers and she just wrote it down really quickly. SO GOOD!

P.I.T.A. is book 4 in the L.A. Liaisons series and it's definitely my favorite. Like the others in this series it was cute and sexy but I think the history between Paige and Dawson made it better and hotter. I loved the whole Vegas trip and the DVD at the end had me in tears. I'm looking forward to Quinn's story can't wait to finally see what she's up to.

If you read my review of Hooker, book two in the L.A. Liaisons series, you’ll notice I’d been dying to get my hands on the next book since then. The little we got to see of Paige in that book showed me that she was hilarious and she was so going to fall in love with her frenemy.

I have been looking forward to the next book in this series! I loved getting to read Paige's story and how she became the bitter(ish) woman she is. What you find out is that a lot of it is due to a lack of communication; well with her relationship with Dawson anyways.

While reading it you could see that Dawson or "Dirty Dick" (LOL) was completely in love with Paige. But due to some miscommunication in college, their relationship was pretty rocky. As the book goes on you see Dawson break down P

Licked and Hooker, gave us a small look at Paige and Dawson's relationship. I use "relationship" loosely. Maybe I should say friendship? Um, that that doesn't work either, because in a friendship you actually have to like the other person, right? There are definite feelings between them. T

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.
