Book Review – P.I.T.A. by Brooke Blaine (LA Liasions #3)

pitzAs 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?

3.75 out of 5 stars

Book 3 in the LA Liaisons series focuses on friend Paige, who is affectionately call Pita (Pain in the ass) by her friends, because of her initials.  Paige is a wedding planner in LA, and has some real daddy issues.

Richard Dawson has known Paige his entire life.  His family is better to Paige than her own family.  The book starts with Paige and Richard (whom she calls Dick) attending Paige’s parents 30th wedding anniversary party in Las Vegas and announcing to all their guests (without informing their daughter) that they are moving to Paris.  Paige loses her mind; yet another show by her parents that she’s not important in their lives.

Richard throws Paige over his shoulder and pulls her out of the party.  They go out and get drunk on Goldschlager (gross), and well, they are in Vegas, I’m guessing you can figure the next part out….

I gave this book a high rating because of Richard.  He was a really good guy.  He was sweet and caring, and was very obviously in love with Paige, despite the fact that she treats him pretty shitty.  I didn’t really like Paige throughout the book.  She had a pretty shitty attitude and treated Richard pretty bad.  She was very nice to her friends.

There were some pretty funny and sweet moments in this book, and I would recommend it.  Overall, this is a great series and I’m really excited about Quinn’s book; since she’s such a mystery.

Happy reading.
