The thing is though, there's a history there, one that Paige is loath to let her friends in on. Yes, for years growing up they were neighbors and best friends, and then ... they weren't. That's the end of the story as far as Paige is concerned.
The thing about too many shots of Goldschläger? Suddenly that story Paige thought had ended has a whole new lease on life and Dick and Pita's relationship just got a whole lot more complicated.
Shenanigans ensue as despite parents who manage to interfere even without really intending to, friends who interfere because that's just what friends do, and an unexpected career implosion Pita attempts to once again extricate herself from Dick's life.
Having absolutely loved both previous standalones in the L.A. Liaisons series, I've been hanging out for this book for what seems like ages and I wasn't at all disappointed.
While the story is perhaps not quite as funny as those other books, given the nature of Paige's personal history, there is nevertheless no shortage of hilarious moments and the sexual tension gets cranked all the way up to eleven.
The closeness of the group of friends the series is built around once again comes to the fore, particularly with Shayne being Paige's housemate, but for me, the sequences involving Dick's Mom was a real standout.
Told entirely first person from Paige's point of view, Brooke Blaine has graced us with a story that alternates between turbulent and calm, wildly erotic and sweetly romantic, laugh out loud funny and heartbreakingly tender.
After this, I honestly can't wait to see what's in store for Quinn, the last of this amazing group of friends to remain single.
How can I break this book down in simple terms? Ummm it's pretty easy.
READ THIS BOOK! Oh my goodness, I've been a fan of this series from day one, and this third installment has surpassed my expectations! You know how some authors decline when they have too many books in a series?
NOT happening here! This book, PITA IS MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE! This is the third book in the L.A. Liaison's series and It's sexy, hilarious, hot, dreamy, sexy, hilarious again! Who doesn't love THAT! I suggest reading Licked and Hooker first, but that's just because I love them, this can totally be read as a standalone, TOTALLY. Just do it!
Paige and Dawson find themselves in a sticky situation. And as much as Paige wants to dissolve this problem she finds that her father has other plans in the form of blackmail. A deal is made and Paige and Dawson get stuck with each other, which should be fun since they want to kill each other. Like seriously, I would hide the kitchen knives around them. This is a story of frenemies to lovers that is delectably witty and decisively smart and in my mind, a great recipe for the PERFECT romcom! Not to mention that Brooke Blaine's writing was absolutely fabulous! It has everything you want and need and every page is filled with goodness! Like seriously every page, there was no skimming!
Paige Iris Traynor-Ashcroft is a wedding planner who ironically doesn't believe in marriage- go figure. She is also one of the most stubborn, hard headed women EVER, and you definitely don't want to cross her path on a full moon because she will rip you to shreds if she's in a bad mood. She has zero filter and will leave you in pieces if you let her, and it was an absolute treat reading her character because I just wished I could be that badass and get away with it!
Richard (dirty-dick) Dawson, but we'll just call him Dawson- on the other hand is more slick with his moves, more calculated, more Rico Suavé, Whereas Paige has no filter, Dawson knows exactly when to shut up or when to shut Paige up! He obviously loves a good challenge, because that's exactly what he gets when it comes to Paige. And ohhhhh boy is she challenging!
Both Paige and Dawson grew up as children of privilege and next door neighbors, but Paige got the short end of the stick when it came to parents so that's how their friendship begins. Unfortunately something has soured their friendship along the way, and that has contributed to their spitfire attitudes towards one another. Their banter is hilarious with dry humor and quick witted comebacks, and I could not stop laughing! I kept thinking of Paige as a ninja because she was just so fast and quick with her dragon fire!
Paige is so mean to Dawson, and he just sort of brushes it off and gives it right back. I loved the way he handled Paige, because I'm not sure any other man could and I totally loved this dynamic in their relationship! Normally when you read books, it's the guy that's the problem child and you're reading along waiting for HIM to turn around and finally submit to his feelings. Not this time, Paige's nickname isn't PITA just because of her initials. She truly is a pain in the ass, and her and Dawson are so damn funny with their crazy ass version of foreplay!
There's also a perfect healthy dose of side characters who I just ADORE. Paige's best friends Shayne, Ryleigh and Quinn whom you've met if you read the first two books. They are hilarious together, and the book wouldn't be the same without out them--umm hello friendship goals!
This book will definitely be on my top reads this year, without a doubt. I honestly can't say enough about it. I know I emphasized how funny it was, but it was also achingly romantic and there was this one scene that had me reading it over and over again because it was just so perfect that I had tears running down my face while holding my chest. And I don't cry easily while reading a book, damn you Brooke Blaine! I cried happy tears, I cried because I was laughing so hard tears, I cried sex tears, SO MANY types of tears! Everybody needs to read this book, it is honestly the perfect escape from just about anything! Now I just need Quinn's book to make it all perfect with a bow on top! I honestly can't wait for that!
Paige is my fave type of book heroine - strong, sassy, mouthy and a heart of gold when it comes to those she loves.
I've wanted to know just what the deal is with her and "Dirty Dick" Dawson, and their frenemy status since book one, and anything I could've imagined or hoped for was absolutely delivered in this book. And then some.
Outside of the fact that the chemistry between Paige and Dawson is down right palpable, sizzling and scorching hot when it bubbles over, this book has so much heart it needs a cardiologist!
It's one of those rare rom-com reads that can have you laughing your butt off one minute, only to be welling up & swallowing a massive lump in your throat the next.
Unabashedly, this book is my favourite in the series to date.
Like all other fans of this series, I can't wait to finally get Quinn's story... I suspect we're in for a surprise.
