About the Author

Jenny Holiday is a USA Today bestselling author who started writing at age nine when her awesome fourth-grade teacher gave her a notebook and told her to start writing some stories. That first batch featured mass murderers on the loose, alien invasions, and hauntings. (Looking back, she's amazed no one sent her to a shrink.) She's been writing ever since. After a detour to get a PhD in geography, she worked as a professional writer, producing everything from speeches to magazine articles. Later, her tastes having evolved from alien invasions to happily-ever-afters, she tried her hand at romance. She lives in London, Ontario, with her family.

Even though I was late to the party, Jenny Holiday’s Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series has easily become one of my favorites and Three Little Words is no exception. Though they are ostensibly about four women finding love, in reality they are about the friendship that sustains those four women. Holiday doesn’t skimp on the female relationships and her novels are stronger for it. Gia and Bennett are fun, but what really makes this book sing is Gia, Wendy, Jane, and Elise. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.

Three Little Words is only the second book I've read by Jenny Holiday and its another winner. Gia and Bennett are wonderful characters and I enjoyed their interactions together and with friends. The only problem is now I have to get to the library and hope they have the other books in the Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series

I tried reading this book a couple weeks ago. I immediately disliked Gia, our heroine. I hate people who cause scenes, are demanding and unreasonable - Gia was all three on the first page of the book. (Does anyone really like an entitled rich girl who looks down on everyone around her?) I put the book down because I did not have the energy at that time to read an entire book about someone I could only expect to hate. Last night, I realized that this book was being published today and that I needed to read it in order to submit a review because I received this book as an ARC and I am an adult. I was not thrilled. So I forced myself to start reading this book again. I started to like Gia a little bit better after a while. (I liked Bennett, immediately.) By the end of a few chapters I flat out liked Gia and wanted her and Bennett to find their HEA. The secondary characters were well written and believable. I also enjoyed getting updates about the characters in the previous books. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys contemporary romance. This book can be read as a stand alone. I received an ARC in exchange of my honest review.

Gia is in desperation mode, she has a wedding to get to in Florida and she has just discovered that not only have all the flights in her area been canceled, but now all the rental cars have been taken too. She doesn't want to let her friends down, but she is running out of time and her options are pretty limited at this point too. Good thing fate has something in store for her, enter Bennett, the best man, and the man that is going to get her to the wedding on time. It just requires her to spend copious amounts of time trapped with him in confines of his rental car, which is certain to be torturous on her libido, and her mind! Three Little Words was an entertaining little page-turner, within it's pages I found a well crafted story that satisfied on all fronts. It had banter to keep me giggling, steamy scenes to keep me swooning, and a little heart squeezing emotion threw in here and there to tug on my heartstrings. Highly recommend! I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest and unbiased opinion.

This was a light and fun and flirty read and just right while I was suffering through the flu! Gia is convinced she is forever going to be only a bridesmaid and never a bride especially since she has a One and Done rule and not willing to break it. Bennett who is the best man for the upcoming wedding has his own set of rules which include a policy of No Flings! Oh, that will not do when all the flights out are canceled and they team up with the last available rental car and share a ride for the long trip to Florida for the wedding. This road trip turns out to be more than fun, it may turn into so much more including breaking a few rules! Definitely a recommendation from me. I didn't read the rest of this series and I didn't feel lost at all and would deem this a standalone, although I will probably go back and pick up the others only because this one was so much fun. **Received this ARC for review from the publisher via NetGalley**

Hate to love is a trope I enjoy. When two people can get through differences, it is always interesting to see how they get there. In Jenny Holiday's Three Little Words, Gia and Bennett are catapulted into the disaster of disasters, and it was a fun adventure to be on. Three Little Words begins in the midst of the week prior to the big day. No, it isn't Gia and Bennett's but their friends. Gia is the best friend of the bride, and has made a promise to make this the best memory, including delivering the wedding dress. But as loyal as Gia is, she comes across as aggressive and very scary. Bennett has made a promise to travel with Gia, as a favor to his friend, the groom. This is a fun and quick-paced story. Gia is a very strong heroine, and at first it put me off from connecting with her. Though, as the story went on, and as I got to know her better, she warmed up to me. Bennett is loyal and genuine, and I really enjoyed him. Knowing who he is and where he came from is one of my favorite things about Three Little Words. There are a few things that I enjoyed and some that I didn't. The premise is fun. What other way to fast forward a getting-to-know you period than a road trip? I enjoyed getting to know the back stories of these two, but at times it felt repetitive. But to be fair to the author, it was my reading preference at the time and my impatience. Other times, I would have instantly warmed up to the two and the steamy romance that was happening before my eyes. I enjoyed this story, and hope there will be more in this world! *Thank you to the publisher for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.*

Three Little Words is a nicely conceived novel by author Jenny Holiday. If you enjoy stories about weddings, road trips and couples in love, then this one is for you. Although this is the third and final book from the author's Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series, it can be read as a standalone. Bridesmaid Gia Gallo and best man Bennett Buchanan are headed down south to Florida to attend the wedding of their dear friends. Due to bad weather they decide to drive, since their flights continually get cancelled. Gia and Bennett find each other quite irritating, however, as they are forced to spend time together in very close proximity, they begin to like each other. This is a fun story and the characters are well defined. I formed an immediate connection with both Gia and Bennett, in addition to the secondary characters. Their feelings for each other developed at a wonderful pace and their time together was very hot. Overall, a solid romantic read. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

This is such a fun series! I couldn't wait to get my hands on Gia's story and it did not disappoint! Though this is book 3 in the series, it can be read as a standalone. Previous characters do appear, however, and I think it would be best appreciated after reading the previous books. I loved Bennett! *swoon* He was such a refreshing hero! He had some very heavy baggage from his past and even though he went to the extreme to atone, I admired his drive to become a better individual. There isn't some adorable meet cute with Gia, but I appreciated that over time, the masks fell away to a degree and they truly saw the other for who they are. Their chemistry was fantastic and their scenes together were both sweet and smoking hot! The forced proximity trope is tricky for me, but I felt like the instalust turned love was handled really well and believable given their 2 personalities and histories. Yes, some things move at warp speed, but it was still a really enjoyable ride. I loved that both Bennett and Gia knew that ultimately they had to "save" themselves, but that they could recognize that help from those who love you goes a long way. Catching up with the other characters in the series was a fun treat (Elise, Jane, and Wendy are a hoot!) and I don't think the epilogue could have been more perfect! It was sweet and heartfelt and a wonderful way to give readers a glimpse into the future of these beloved characters. It definitely left me with a smile on my face! *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

Pure perfection, my heart is so happy! A winter storm moves into New York, leaving Gia Gallo and Bennett Buchanan stranded. They both need to get to the same wedding destination in Florida, Gia has the wedding dress and Bennett has the rings. After multiple attempts to get a different flight, they're best option is a rental car. Road trip with two strangers who have amazing chemistry and pasts they'd rather keep hidden...what could go wrong? This is one of my favorite series, it always keeps me laughing and makes me almost want to try the dating world again, lol. The characters in this story are like family and have a strong bond that nobody can break. Such a wonderful journey of self-discovery, overcoming your past and fighting for happiness even if you're in denial. I absolutely love the Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series and this is the best one yet!

I had been soooo excited to read Three Little Words because I wanted Gia’s story, badly! Though, if it hadn’t been for knowing Gia’s character from the previous books in the Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series, I would have thought very poorly of her at the start of this book. Even with the knowledge I had, it was hard to swallow her behavior for part of this book. Thankfully, the Gia that I had known in the previous books started to emerge and that made this story much more palatable. Gia was a complicated character who had spent much of her life being appreciated only for her beauty and this had led to a major heartbreak for her. In order to ensure that she never felt that way again or even allowed herself to be molded for anyone, she basically installed a steel cage around her heart and set rules up to never allow herself to feel for another man again. Which was pretty sad but it had worked out well for her and she had never had an issue, until Bennett. Bennett was best friends with the groom and only for that reason did he take pity on Gia and help her out when she was stranded. He had zero interest in being around her, despite how attractive he felt she was. She was definitely the type of woman that he tried desperately to avoid. He also had his own rules and stipulations when it came to romance but being with her wasn’t about romance. They just both needed to make it to the same destination on time. For that reason, he felt that he could endure her company but he never expected that she would speak to a part of him that he thought long buried. Somewhere along the way, the snarkiness and combativeness between these characters seemed to chill out and they somehow found that they were getting along very well. Which led to some very interesting and heated times. As they let down their pretenses and shed their armor, they found that there was something that they both were experiencing and that they both desperately needed, even if they were in denial about their actual emotional needs. Overall, Three Little Words turned into such a sweet romance and amazing series ending that I absolutely feel you should give this book and the series a try if you haven’t already! This review is based on a complimentary book I received from NetGalley. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.

I loved this book and I'm pretty sure I found myself a new favorite author! Jenny Holiday is a new author to me, but I absolutely loved her writing style (lots of banter, a strong female lead and lots of heat)! Gia and Bennett are two total opposites and you would think that these two would never end up together. I'll be honest, when I first started reading the book I absolutely hated Gia and I wasn't sure that I would like her as much as I ended up liking her. She's a very complicated person and her "one-and-done, two-and-through" attitude immediately turned me off especially how she came on to Bennett so strongly. But then you learn about her back story and Bennett's back story respectively and you come to appreciate these complicated people who obviously adore each other on so many levels. This was my first Jenny Holiday book, so I didn't read any of the books in this series - so safe to say it can be read as a stand alone, but I can't wait to read the rest of the books that came before this one :). **ARC provided by NetGalley and the publisher.

I loved the idea of this synopsis and couldn’t wait to get to the story — and even better, maybe find a new to me author. I really liked Gia and Bennett. I loved both of their personalities and how they had similar backgrounds. I especially loved the juxtaposition of her being a model and him being a chef. Their chemistry was good and while I did like how their relationship progressed, I wanted more banter. Plot wise, it was a pretty quick pace. Even though the action of them getting to Florida was repetitive, it never felt that way. I found myself looking forward to the shenanigans. My main complaint is that there were a lot of other characters from the previous books and I just couldn’t keep them straight. Overall, it was a fun and quick read. I enjoyed the more serious topics not overshadowing the entire story and that it was able to remain light. I will definitely be checking into other of Jenny’s books. FYI: there is talk of eating disorders throughout the book. **Huge thanks to Forever for providing the arc free of charge**

Seems that all the bridesmaids in their small group of friends are falling in love but Gia Gallo is certain she won't be the next. After all her number one rule is One and Done! Best man Bennett Buchanan has a no fling rule but Gia Gallo may be worth breaking that rule. After all the flights out of the city are grounded Bennett and Gia set off on an impromptu road trip to Florida where the wedding is being held. These two will find it difficult to play by their rules! I've really enjoyed this series and this book is a great addition. All the books are light, funny, and have little angst. This book is filled with humor and it makes for a nice relaxing read. I definitely recommend it.

**I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review** I've greatly enjoyed every book in Jenny Holiday's Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series and I couldn't wait to jump into this book to see what this quartet of friends was going to get themselves involved with this time, outside of ultimately having a wedding! Gia Gallo has always been the one in the group that hasn't wanted a relationship. Her motto is "one and done" or "two and through" and she's always stuck to that. She's a model, so she's always moving around, so it works for her for more reasons than most would understand. Bennett Buchanan is a chef and owns a restaurant in New York City. He is Noah, the groom's best friend, and he's looking forward to a few days away even though he's normally very hands on with his restaurant. Bennett is the kind of guy that likes to be in relationships and he's pretty strict about how he goes about those relationships. When Gia and Bennett end up stranded together in New York City as they are trying to fly to Florida for Wendy and Noah's wedding, what starts out as two people sniping at each other, starts to grow a beautiful friendship. They are forced to spend time together and not only that, they end up being comfortable with one another. Confidences are shared, they enjoy one another's company and it's clear they have chemistry, but the question is will either of these stubborn people look at their situation and determine it might be worth breaking their self imposed rules?! I loved the layers in this book. I felt like as we were moving through it was almost like an onion and we were peeling back another layer, whether it be from Gia or Bennett. This story flowed well for me and it seemed very realistic, from both of their concerns about relationships as well as the other baggage they both carried from earlier in their lives and even currently. Jenny Holiday created such a wonderful group of characters and I'm so glad we got to enjoy the awesomeness of them once again!
