Three Little Words by Jenny Holiday

3/5 stars

Three Little Words is part of the Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series.  I read Merrily All the Way by the same author and I enjoyed it enough that when I was gifted the latest novel in the series, I quickly read it.

From the Publisher: 

Gia Gallo is officially in bridesmaid hell. Stranded in New York with her best friend’s wedding dress, Gia has six days to make it to Florida in time for the ceremony. And oh-so-charming best man Bennett Buchanan has taken the last available rental car. Looks like she’s in for one long road trip with the sexiest – and most irritating – Southern gentleman she’s ever met…
Bennett’s pretty sure that if there was ever a woman to break his “no flings” rule, Gia would be it. Sure, she’s stubborn. She’s also funny, smart, and the attraction between them is getting hotter with every state line they cross. While Bennett doesn’t do casual, Gia doesn’t do “relationships.” But if they break the rules, this unlikely pair might discover that their impromptu road trip could turn out to be the best ride of their lives.

My Review:

This book series is very sexually explicit, which I know is not for everyone and I had not read anything like this before.  

I liked both Gia and Bennett’s characters, I liked how they made each other better and how they had dreams together.  I liked how they resolved issues with their parents.  I really liked Bennett’s character and I enjoyed a man who didn’t do casual relationships and a woman who does for a change.  I loved all of the references to contemporary things – like Bon Jovi’s pay-what-you-can or work for dinner restaurant JBJ Soul Kitchen.  I feel like those references make the story seem more real.  

I would recommend this to anyone who has read and enjoyed this series or anyone who likes romance and doesn’t mind sexually explicit scenes.
