HappyFeelsBrooke s L.A Liaisons series is my happy place The books are guaranteed to put a smile on my face and make me feel like I m frolicking through a field of rainbows and kittens Too much My point is, they re the perfect feel good romances They re steamy, funny, fantastically developed and fabulously written I m hooked and I never want it to end I highly recommend reading this series in order since you really get a better feel for the girls friendship and get to know the characters before their books and it just heightens the enjoyment that much We met matchmaker extraordinaire, Shayne, in the previous book Shane is the Aussie import of the group that works for a successful matchmaking company but unfortunately has a real c u next Tuesday for a boss I was eager to get my hands on her story because 1 I love matchmaking plots and 2 I was hoping Shane would grow a spine and give as good as she gets when it comes to Val.I can tell you I was beyond satisfied on both those ends.I love how each book begins with a certain state of undress with the characters, and we get a bit of pantless action here since Shayne first lays her eyes on hottie, Nate, at a Pantless Metro Ride A sexy man wearing suspenders and dimples would have caught my attention, too I loved the added element of Nate being younger and yet he s not your typical hero that you d read This is not a manwhore or a serial dater this is a man that knows what he wants and isn t afraid to go after and show his sensitive side Oh, Dimples, who would ve thought that such a sentimental sap was underneath those sexy suspenders Should I start taking you to chick flicks and forcing you to read love stories Hey, there s nothing wrong with a good love story I simply adored Nate and the way he pursued Shayne, even while Shayne was doing her utmost best to resist him.While the romance was fabulous, what I ve come to love the most about this series is the friendship that the girls have It s like this perfect rom com where you have genuine friendships There s no backstabbing or cattiness, I can t praise it enough for that I love the friendship that they have and their banter It reminds me of movies like The Sweetest Thing, which is still my go to when I need a pick me up.Brooke Blaine certainly knows how to give good romance and she delivers it flawlessly She also sets up quite a story for Paige and Richard aka Dick I for one can t wait for Pita and Dick.If you re looking for a light romance to put a smile on your face and a chest full of swoons, you need to be adding this one to your TBR

wrote this book off and called it a day a few times, but I m so glad I stuck with it By the end it all made sense The struggles Shayne lived through needed to be witnessed by us to see her epiphany, awakening Aha, moment While we may not agree with her sacrifices and decisions, we come to realise that she honestly thought she was doing the right thing I went from lacking a connection and disliking Shayne to realising that we re all a little like her at some times in our lives A lack of confidence, hesitation and reluctance to take risks and not seeing the beauty in ourselves are all things we suffer once or twice Was I frustrated with her and myself for not having confidence BLOODY HELL YES Did I want her me to start hearing what her friends kept repeating over and over and over again Yep Did I want her to put love ahead of everything I m a romance reader, so, of course, the answer is YESSSSSS Hooker led me on a path of discovery It made me look at myself and assess how much could change in my life Am I not taking opportunities because of the risks involved Will love get put on a back burner because I think something else is important Should I start listening to the compliments I receive instead of thinking they re feeling sorry for me Hooker was a great example of the happiness that can be achieved when you take a bit of a risk, listen to people you trust and put your loved ones before careers.I m absolutely addicted to this series and I LOVE these women and the men that come into their lives I cannot wait for P.I.T.A.To buy Hooker from m an Aussie chick

long to start this series there was no way in hell Hooker was going to sit on my Kindle any longer This was yet another hilarious, out there, book by Brook Blain and I m really glad I discovered the wonderful world she created with these characters You should remember the Hooker from down under from Licked, and if you don t you should definitely at least remember her highly inappropriate and hoe bag boss Shayne, the matchmaker aka the Hooker of the group, is also the klutz and the one that seems to be having a run of bad luck Which is the only explanation for why she meets a gorgeous guy on a trainin her Star Wars underwear The meeting gets even worse when he actually seems interested, and then she learns he s only 24 too young for her Nate Ryan know s what he wants, and it comes in the form of the klutzy red head who can t seem to stay on her feel longer than a few minutes So he s a few years younger than her no problem to him Now he just has to get her to see that he s worth taking a chance on, and since he seems to be running into her everywhere he goes, it must be fate.I loved these characters, especially Nate, and it was great getting to know so much about them I really liked how stubborn Nate was and wouldn t give up on making Shayne see that she was perfect for him Oh and his suspenders were actually kind of hot Shayne was hilarious and some of the things she got herself involved in made me laugh out like a crazy person There were a few things that I didn t understand about her but by the end of the book I could understand what she was going through and why she had to do what she did Her and Nate were a perfect couple, and really hot also Bottom line, this was another amazing book by this author and I hope everyone who like a light, romantic comedy will give it a

Licked, the first book of the series, and just loved it I bust my gut laughing out loud at all the crazy antics of these four best friends and I was very happy to see that it continued in this book Brooke Blaine definitely knows how to write a great romantic comedy.Shayne, the redhead Aussie of the group, is definitely no hooker, at least not the kind I know you re thinking of She works at Hook, Line Sinker as a professional matchmaker that helps couples hook up in order to form a long serious relationship no wham bam, thank you ma am allowed Shayne absolutely loves what she does, but unfortunately her place of work isn t that great That is all thanks to her obnoxiously loud and tacky boss, Val She also doesn t make very much money, but Shayne is grateful for what she does have and doesn t dwell too much on what she doesn t At least that is what she s convinced of herself of I really liked Shayne She was a bit of a klutz, she had the occasional bouts of verbal diarrhea, and was also quite sassy which I loved So far she has done really great in her professional life but not so much in her personal life That all changes when her friends forcibly get her to join them on the Pantsless Metro Ride day She is very self conscience of her body and doesn t think she is that great even though she is very beautiful But what is even embarrassing to her is her star wars underwear The last thing on her mind is men, but then she connects eyes with Nate and the attraction is immediate He is tall, cute, and has a charming smile with dimples, Shayne just couldn t resist that or his suspenders And just her luck, he likes Star Wars too as his Wanna See My Lightsaber underwear suggests Ryleigh had my pants Which meant I d been making googly eyes at Mr Gorgeous without them, which also meant I d have to exit the train with my underwear on full display.Oh my God Oh my God. Shayne is great at matching other people together, but when it comes to herself she just sucks She isn t really interested in getting involved with anyone, however, Nate is not taking no for an answer Shayne pushes him away because of many reasons, one being he is a young college guy, and she is older than him Nate loves a challenge and definitely works hard to get Shayne I was a goner when it came to Nate He was so sweet, romantic, and so damn sexy He seriously made me swoon Not gonna lie, I absolutely loved the chase portion of the book as much as Shayne did Nate was a different male lead but in a good way because I loved him He was perfect for Shayne and they were just so adorable together I just loved their flirtatious banter.It was really great having the rest of the gang still be present in this book I loved how supportive and crude these girls were, they were a hilarious bunch that makes you want to be their friend And then he kissed me, and it was butterflies, and fireworks and explosions, but most of all, it was the assurance that he knew who he was kissing, really knew, and wanted to anyway This book was very heartwarming and full of laughs I really enjoyed the story

becomes official.Final thoughts Terrific start I was caught at the very beginning Day without pants Hilarious The eyes connection in the metro OMG And who would have thought that the younger man than a woman can excite me like that Nate was so charming, I love his determination and persuasion, with what exactly he won her I love each of their shared scene My favorite is probably the club in Vegas It was so hot and steaming beyond the limits Although the development with movie star was interesting and adds action, it really was not needed For me would be enough with scenes with Shayne and Nate

us, once again, really enjoyable characters, storylines as well as dialogues I had such a fun while reading this rom com What I liked about this one, was that I could relate with the heroine She s a tall clutz that can t walk on heels That screams Sophie, you guys P Also, it s been a common case in my life where I should speak and instead I stay silent Where I try to fix a mess and make a bigger one instead, just because I wanted to help Where I put up with bitches instead of slapping them So there were moments where I fell frustrated, but I could also understand, because I ve been there I also fell in love with Nate Like seriously, the guy was book boyfriend material and this has happened to me before on Licked Brooke has the talent to provide you with males that you will swoon over and females that you want to high five and shake booties with That scene at the office Just hot damn And then when the suspenders were handsy whistles I can t wait to read P.I.T.A and on that note I

it She tries her best to push away Nate with all kinds of young college boy comments but he s seriously all manBrooke Blaine has constructed a community of characters within this series and we ve grown to know each of them in all their quirks and career aspirations Though each book can be read as a standalone, I liked being able to have the background of all the characters after having read Licked, the first book in the series One thing is a constant here these four girls have a bond of friendship that cannot be broken When someone is in need, they all come to rally in support They re comical as well as loyal Can I just say Shayne s boss is a grade A beech Holy smokes, I grit my teeth everytime that woman opened her mouth She was mean, crass, sleezy, and just a virtual train wreck of epic proportions She deserved everything bad that comes to her But I digress Another successful installment of the LA Liasons series I look forward to the next book P.I.T.A which promises to be my

she got me Hooked, Line, Sinker Now, I m a career matchmaker, so I don t preach the whole love at first sight, you just know from the moment you lay eyes on someone spiel that others do I ve always said it takes than a look to know if you re compatible with someone, but at this moment I d take back all my words, stuff them into an old suitcase, and toss them out on the side of the PCH Because that guy So how did this Hooker get me hooked The answer to that is simple She is Brooke Blaine of course, author extraordinaire and also throw in the fact that she captured my attention when she introduced us to Nate Ryan Ladies, who wouldn t love a handsome dimpled face cutie, who wears suspenders and loves Star Wars And as added bonus knows how to use his lightsaber In Licked, we were introduced to Ryleigh Phillips and her amazing girlfriends Well, now that Ryleigh is all licked up by her boyfriend, Hunter, it is time for her friend, Shayne Callahan to find her perfect match so she can be licked also Shouldn t be that hard since Shayne is a matchmaker Right Well as it turn out Shayne is an amazing matchmaker but when it comes to her love life, this lady ain t getting licked. The only thing she is licking is the rim of her margarita glass But as it turns out, Shayne didn t have to wait long till Mr Right to come along All she had to do was take off her pants Literally Pantless and in her Star War undies, she meets also another gentleman who is also pantless and is also wearing Star War undies too Can you say a perfect match As it turns, Nate Ryan was not only adorably handsome, smart, witty, and fun but he also made Shayne s ladybits wet So as you can imagine, he hooked her and all he has to do is reel her in Well as much as Shayne tried to put up the fight, she was no match for the younger Nate as he reeled her in But what happens when Shayne s job puts her in an awkward position of being a beard for a popular celebrity Will this hooker be able to juggle all the balls Or will she discover that there is only one set of balls that she wants to hook onto As he kissed his way up my body, I lost myself in his touch, his caress, both gentle and strong, and in the dirty sweet nothings he whispered as he filled me so entirely that I couldn t imagine ever feeling complete without him Hooker was an absolute laugh out loud entertaining read It truly was a riot of fun as we were doused with all the craziness Shayne and her foot in the mouth disease caused The writing and story line were wickedly smart, fresh, modern, and witty This book definitely had that Brooke Blaine signature of sass, modern romance, and naughtiness So if you are looking for a romantic comedy done right, then I would highly recommend you to read this book All I

her like she does and when she FINALLY stands up for herself I was cheering.Nate Ryan is a bit of a mystery really as we do not find out much about him we know he is in college studying what we don t know, we know he always looks good in his suits and suspenders He is four years younger than Shayne and he has dimples.There is instant chemistry between them they can t stop eye f cking each other but every time they meet Shayne ends up with foot in mouth disease that has Nate walking away.I enjoyed getting to know Ace BD before Dylan and finding out what happened with Shayne and how he came out to the press BLESS HIM.The epilogue was wonderful and told from Nate s POV.I enjoyed Hooker but not as much as Licked I feel that the relationship between Shayne and Nate was rushed and skimmed over this was about Shayne and her life than them as a couple, this took away the romance in the story for me this is why I have taken 1 away example we had a Valentine s night were Shayne is working Nate arrives there and next page we are in March no hot V night action I can only remember two all the way sex scene.Loved all the girl time these ladies are hilarious and I am looking forward to the

in every aspect in life, whether it is job related, family related, and the most coveted of them all, LOVE These women are a huge part of this series, and you will be so happy to learn about each of them Shayne is one of my favorite chicks ever She s Australian and quirky and adorably clumsy She rambles when she s nervous and she sticks her foot in her mouth times than she does food She s also extremely strong and sweet and surprisingly shy I love her so much And she s also a professional matchmaker with a super inappropriate boss bitch combo that would make anyone hurl Then we have Nate

match for Hollywood s biggest action star, she ll get the big promotion she s been waiting for Things are looking up in her dating life as well.Nate is a dimpled, suspender loving grad student who meets Shayne in a very unconventional way Despite her attraction, she s reluctant to get involved, but Nate is determined to wear down Shayne s defenses Just as the matchmaker seems to find her match, her work life interferes in a huge way.I adored the first third and the last third of the book It s sweet and absolutely hilarious It s the middle section that I had issues with Shayne s involvement in the scandal cover up reflects her kind heart However, it had me shaking my head because she s a smart lady who should have been able to manage the crisis without putting her relationship at risk Every couple needs a conflict to make the story interesting I just wish this one hadn t felt so forced.Brooke Blaine s storytelling is addictive and unquestionably amusing The group of friends and their boozing, schmoozing, and plotting will make you wish they were your friends in real life This funny and charming book is a great addition to an entertaining series Paige s story is up next so

matchmaking her life s work She s got a wall full of success stories, and yet her own heart lays unclaimed She s smart and feisty and that unclaimed heart of hers is freaking enormous she s just never found anyone brave enough to take it on Enter Nate Ryan Nate matches Shayne blow for metaphorical blow He can keep up with her sharp wit, her prickly denials, and most importantly the size of his heart matches perfectly to the size of her heart They re perfect together Only, things are never quite as simple as they seem, right The two are adorable together, but are they strong enough to endure the sometimes outrageous curveballs life throws at them This story is so fun The magic of Licked is here, with the addition of celebrity sex scandals and nefarious bosses and all the crazy antics surrounding those things It s a fun, engaging story low on angst and heavy on humor and swoon Basically, it s the perfect RomCom with secondary characters that stole my heart and are demanding to be written DEMANDING Because if you ve read it, you already know we need an Ace book The fact that I loved Ace almost as much as I loved Nate and Shayne should tell you something about how lovely the layers of this book are, and how captured my heart was by everything in it The magic of this book isn t only in the romance, it s in the friendships it s in the character arcs, and the wonderful conflict resolution It all works and it leaves you feelinggood Happy Like you just gave your heart a little vacation.If you re looking for something lighthearted, something that s going to tug your lips into a smile, occasionally a giggle, and leave you with a shitton of butterflies in your stomach, this is the book for you It s adorable Sweet Funny I loved everything the pop culture references, the banter, the sparky sexual chemistry, and, my God, the ending that made me clutch my heart and gasp out loud, all because Nate Ryan knocks romantic gestures out of the park and my heart is lost to

and does indeed drive me batty Secondly, I m killing it as an Aussie because, much like Shayne, I can say Wollongong five times fast with total ease Lastly but most importantly I have a deep attraction to guys who wear suspenders Who knew Well, when I look at it like that then I guess it s the obvious reaction for anything that has functioning eyes Although, I can honestly say I ve never given suspenders a second thought until Nate kept rockin the look in this book, but I can promise you it will be something I ll be thinking about long and hard hehe in the future But I digressThis story starts out really strong, with Shayne and Nate locking eyes across a crowded train carriage, while both are pantsless there is a good funny as heck story here, I promise Those initial moments of recognition and attraction were deliciously appealing and I thought I was in for one hell of a romantic ride Unfortunately, not soon after, Shayne and Nate s first actual conversation ends with Shayne disregarding Nate completely because he is 4 years her junior, and suddenly I lost a bit of interest in Shayne as a rational female lead Because, 4 years Really That seems to be a non issue for me and I famously don t like age differences in my books so if I don t see the problem here, why does Shayne Particularly considering the fact that she s already established that this guy is sweet and kind and intelligent, not to mention he s wildly attractive and a fellow geek like Shayne It just felt like a completely ridiculous issue to use in the story to stretch the plot out for a little longer.Regardless, I put this qualm aside because, much like with the first story, I was loving the writing style, the brand of humour present and the characters minus Shayne.The rest of the story had its ups and downs for me I liked all the interactions between this group of friends these women are each other s most honest and loyal supporters, telling it to each other straight while being there for one another unconditionally I simply loved their camaraderie I also adored Nate as a male lead He was unrelenting in his pursuit of the often combative Shayne I like a guy who knows what he wants and goes after it Sadly, I just never warmed back up to Shayne after those initial scenes In fact, as the story progressed, I found and to not like about her This was just my personal reaction and unfortunately it stopped me from enjoying this story to the same degree I enjoyed its predecessor As I mentioned above, my disinterest in the plot mainly revolved around Shayne having to keep secrets from Nate and her friends for the majority of the story And although these secrets exist while Shayne is doing something good and unselfish for someone else, the fact that she had to keep these secrets to begin with, and then refused to share them with her loved ones later on, drove me bonkers To be fair, there was a non disclosure agreement involved which served as the reason Shayne didn t couldn t divulge the truth earlier, but I felt like this was a weak reason for her to allow her life to get so messed up in the process Honesty is the best policy, people but I guess had we had honesty here, there would have been no story So, okay, not as enjoyable for me as Licked, but I m completely invested in these characters and can t wait to see what s in store for these women next I m

Shayne He is a few years younger but has a heart as huge as Shayne s and is very enamoured with her Shayne has her reservations, age being the biggest but our Nate is nothing but stubborn and doesn t give up He was persistent and he needed to be with a woman that had her insecurities but at the end of the day just wanted to love and be loved.The dating game of A Listers is nothing but interesting and behind the scenes is a real eye opener With an alcoholic boss that has no scruples and would throw anyone under a bus for a few bucks Shayne soon finds herself questioning everything she had believed in with her perfect job Taking her clients hearts tenderly into her own hands is a job that Shayne treasures and when one of her clients is thrown into the media spot light Shayne does everything she can to mitigate the damage, even if it means sacrificing her own happiness Just something pure and untainted Strong This was such a fun read and even though the course of true love does not run smooth I found myself smiling, laughing and snorting so many times This group of people are hilarious to read about and their friendships are the forever kind They all have each other s backs and would do anything for the other and not only is this enviable but so commendable too Brooke Blaine whisks you away in this celebrity edition of LA Liaisons where back stabbing is rife, your friends are crazy, running around the trains in your underwear is completely normal, everything is solved with alcohol and alcohol laced ice cream, where friendships are king and love is in the air.Thoroughly entertaining, laugh out loud funny, but most of all, totally endearing Ace needs his own book desperately I need Ace theromancecover flag 7 likesLike see review View 2 comments Jan 27,

very much enjoyed the second book in Brooke Blaine s L.A Liaison s series, Hooker, but it has a bit angst than the first book, however it was still as crazy, fun, and sexy as I ve come to expect from this author.As one of L.A s best matchmakers Shayne Callahan doesn t think love and marriage is in the works for her, she firmly believes in both and has a reputation for paring her clients perfectly with their love match So when she sees HIM across a crowded Metro ride on Pantless day and his smile makes her insides go completely haywire she knows she is in trouble and trouble has an interesting way of finding her.First off I loved the connection between Shayne and Nate From the moment they see one another to their chance meetings and their semi disastrous first date, it is evident there is something special between them I loved that Nate refused to let Shayne push him away or let him being younger by a few years be an issue Shayne was a bit of a tough nut to crack, but Nate just kept up the charming pressure until she couldn t resist and his collection of suspenders helped too Yes, Nate is a suspender wearing guy who doesn t hesitate to let his dimples and boyish smile help him get his way.While Shayne loves what she does for a living her boss and her office are what you might call hostile and when she is put in charge of a high profile client, A lister film star Ace Locke she gets way involved than she ever planned adding stress to her life and threatening her developing relationship with Nate.Shayne s friends are always there to back her up, offer support, ice cream, wine and a shoulder to cry on but she also finds a good friend and confidant in Ace who helps her way than she could ever imagine.While this book was a bit angsty for me and I didn t quite connect with the characters as well as the first book, it was still a very enjoyable and satisfying romance I can t wait to see what Ms Blaine has in store for P.I.T.A flag 7 likesLike see review Mar 06, 2016 Alexis

matchmaking agency, and is content to find love for her clients without the hassle of having to worry about it for herself But all it takes is one glance at a gorgeous man across a train carriage for everything to change My heart seemed to be expanding in my chest at a rapid rate, all the blood in my body rushing to accommodate the growth, leaving me lightheaded and tightening my grip on the bar so I wouldn t fall over A hint of a grin lifted the corner of his mouth, and as I stood there blinking, it slowly grew until a blinding, brilliant smile lit up the car It seems to scream several things to me all at once.Hello.You re beautifulAnd I feel that too.Shayne and Nate may meet in bizarre circumstances the panstless train ride, and wearing matching Star Wars undies no less but their chemistry is undeniable from that first moment Nate is charming, sweet, funny, a little bit nerdy and sexy as all hell, and he makes it very clear that he s interested But Shayne is wary of the younger man pursuing her so relentlessly And so begins an epic battle which is hot, hilarious, banter filled and simmering with sexual tension I think you like me looking at you I mimicked his pose as I leaned against the wall Well, I can t stop you No, you can t He cocked his head to the side Do you know what I love than anything Stalking potential dates in the grocery aisle Gorgeous women who

of what s going into that delicious mouth of yours Jesus I shook my head You don t stop, do you His dimple deepened You like that too Shayne is a wonderfully endearing heroine She s a bit awkward both physically and verbally but she s still confident, she s stubborn and determined, and she s got a huge heart, and I loved her Her back and forth with Nate is highly entertaining and not overdone, and it doesn t take her too long to give in, and they are perfect together and so, so hot But Shayne s life is full of turmoil her boss is a foul mouthed drunken lush who uses and abuses her, she lives in a run down apartment with reality show addicted bronzed twins as roommates, and she has been unexpectedly caught up in a celebrity scandal which complicates everything in her life Luckily, she has her three best girls all completely without filter on hand to help her navigate the ups and downs of it all, and it s a hilarious and highly entertaining ride This is a short and really enjoyable read It

understand Shayne s hesitance to be attracted to someone like him Through their banter, he is persistent and she cannot get him out of her head These two have amazing chemistry Can we talk about how well written Hooker is If you ve read the first book in the series, Licked, you know that the author has a serious knack for romantic comedies But Hooker she has certainly stepped it up several notches and this book without a doubt it one of my top romantic comedy reads The writing is seamless This is not a book you will find easy to put down The author is a master in her character development in that you find yourself wanting to be friends with these people Or at least find friends as cool as them Hooker is seriously one of my favorite reads this year I laughed out loud hysterically at some points Several times I smiled, I giggled I simply lived while reading this book The author did a great job at balancing the romance and the comedy as some books seem to give of one over the other Hooker is an engaging, unputdownable story with an addictive plot line that I never wanted to end A definite must read So excited for what s to come for the rest of this series flag

her own life That is, until she meets her match in Nate Nate is a good guy, albeit a bit younger than Shane This tiny age gap lead to a lot of humor in terms of their banter and if Hooker is to be honest with herself, adds a bit of worry Guys who are younger than women are typically a bit immature In the beginning when we meet Nate, I feel like readers will have this exact same feeling For me, I wasn t as fond of him when I first met him but his character did indeed grow on me, and of course on our heroine But life and lies will get in the way So, will Hooker ever get her HEA Once again,
