Whoever said singles were missing out by not finding true love and getting married before the age of thirty had never experienced the sheer pleasure of nightly romantic comedy viewings in their underwear while eating one of Licked’s famous Crazy Cat Lady sundaes. Because life just doesn’t get better than that.

At least, it doesn’t for Shayne Callahan. It didn’t take more than a handful of broken hearts after college to solidify that she was better at pairing up those around her than herself. As a matchmaker at the elite HLS—Hook, Line, & Sinker Matchmaking Company—in the City of Angels, she has a knack for finding the other halves of even the most eccentric clients:

Sugar daddy with a foot fetish? Gross, but no problem.A severe case of nudophobia? Match made before lunch.

But even the most happily independent of women can find their best-laid plans screeching to a halt when they meet that guy. For Shayne, that guy comes in the form of boyishly handsome, suspender-lovin’, dimple-poppin’ Nate Ryan on a pantsless (we’ll get to that later) Metro ride.

Of course, relationships can never be easy. Before the destined lovers can ride off into the sunset, they must overcome a power-hungry and sexual-punning boss, a celebrity scandal and cover-up, and let’s not forget Shayne’s dreadful foot-in-mouth disease—with which there can never be a happily ever after.

Will fate throw Shayne a freakin’ bone? Or will she be destined to live out her life as sexy(ish), single(ish), and L.A.’s finest Hooker (upper)?

This is the second book in the romantic comedy series L.A. Liaisons series BUT can be read as a standalone as each book features a different BFF/Romance. Once again, Brooke Blaine has me laughing my butt off. I love romantic comedies, and this one hit the nail on the head. It’s funny, has a great set of characters that will keep you entertained, and includes some very well written romance. I also want to add that each chapter title is downright hilarious! Fans of romantic comedies will definitely want to check out this series… its seriously good….

In this installment, we get to know Hooker a little better (aka Shayne). Hooker is a professional matchmaker but doesn’t have any romance in 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 more 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, this is an awesome series and definitely a “go to” for me when it comes to my favorite genre; Romantic Comedies. Next up is Pitas story and I honestly can’t wait. I hope it comes out soon! So, if you’re looking for a fun and somewhat heartwarming story that will make you laugh and swoon than I recommend picking up this book!
