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.
So…I’ve been eagerly waiting for this one. The love/hate relationship between Paige and Richard has been mentioned in the other two books in the L.A. Liaisons series.
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.
Paige is a devout non-relationship type of gal. After seeing her parents in a love-less marriage she has pretty much made it her mission not to be like them. The irony is that she’s a wedding planner…yep, she plans weddings yet doesn’t actually believe in them.
When a twist of fate has her and Richard in a strange albeit hysterical situation she has to confront her fears of relationships.
This book was written as the perfect rom-com. Brooke Blaine has a knack for great storytelling. Her books are so engaging, that they are un-put-downable. The sexiness between Richard and Paige was also pretty scorching, so there’s that as well.
The reason I didn’t rate this one a 5-star read? Well, I just wanted more. More of them as a couple. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it. I think I just wanted more than all the build-up.
If you want to read something short, sweet with a side of sexy this is it!
