Three Little Words (Fool's Gold Series #12) by Susan Mallery

Can first love turn into the real deal? Anything can happen in a sizzling new Fool's Gold story from New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery.

Isabel Beebe thinks she's cursed in the romance department. Her teenage crush, Ford Hendrix, ignored all her letters. Her husband left her for another…man. So Isabel has come home to dust off her passion for fashion and run the family bridal shop until her parents are ready to sell it. Then she'll pursue her real dreams. At least, that's the plan, until sexy, charming Ford returns and leaves her feeling fourteen all over again…..

Seeing Isabel all grown-up hits bodyguard trainer Ford like a sucker punch. Back when heartbreak made him join the military, her sweet letters kept him sane. Now he can't take his eyes—or his lips—off her. The man who gave up on love has a reason to stay in Fool's Gold forever—if three little words can convince Isabel to do the same.

I started reading the first few chapters late one night and couldn't wait to pick it up the next day to finish it.  I loved that got both Ford and Kent Hendrix's stories in one great book. Wow! What diverse brothers falling for girls who are their opposites yet balance them out perfectly. As in all the Fools Gold books, there are obstacles on the way to happily ever after.  Another one knocked out of the park by Susan Mallery!

I have to admit of the two romances I liked Kent's story better than Ford's . Guess I'm more about the nice guy than the hot guy

The story of Isabel and Ford is a true love story. She falls in love with him as a teenager and it never goes away. Remember your first love? Susan Mallery has done it again. Stole my heart!

This is one of the early Fool's Gold series books. Isabella has been in love with Ford since she was 14. She wrote him letters while he was in the SEALS but he never responded. Years later Isabelle is divorced and has moved back home to help with the family business and Ford is back home in business with former members. They become friends and fake date to fool his mother. Fake dating becomes real love. This a great book that introduces a lot of future characters and sets the scene for more couples.

I ablsoulutly love Susan's work I was looking for a long time for a series that could hook me and keep me and have characters that seem like real to me.  Three Little Words and Fools Gold was everything I looked for and more. I started it late one night and couldn't wait to get back into it lets just say Im hooked now. This being my first in the series I can't wait to see where she goes with this and where it came from. I wish there was real people like Ford and Isabelle if Fools Gold  was real id be gone in a second.

When Isabel was 14 years old she fell in love with her older sister's fiance, Ford. But when Maeve and Ford's too-young romance implodes because Maeve fell in love with his best friend, Ford leaves their small-town and joins the military. He becomes a SEAL and serves in the army for 14 years. Isabel starts writing Ford letters, declaring her love for him (at 14 years old), telling him about herself and her life and urging him to stay safe but Ford never writes back. Isabel continues growing up, goes to school, moves to NYC and gets married. When her marriage ends, she returns to her hometown to house sit for her parents and to help with the wedding shop while her parents on vacation.  Ford is back in town too and lives in the apartment over the house Isabel is living and they find an easy friendship. When Ford needs Isabel's help to end his mother's nonstop matchmaking she agrees to pretend to be his girlfriend. They both are enjoying the 'pretend' relationship and spend much more time together than necessary for their fake relationship to look real. Isabel starts to worry when she realizes she has feelings for Ford because she knows he is not into commitments and may leave if he finds out how she feels. Mallery has a wonderful way of telling the story and keeping the reader guessing.  It's amazing how she draws you into the story and gets you worried that Ford may bolt if he finds out how Isabel really feels. I thought Isabel was pretty smart to have figured out what emotional support Ford needed when trying to deal with his large family gathering.  I was chuckling several times when reading this book and also several times had me thinking awwww that's sweet. Fool's Gold is a great little town with wonderful community spirit.  It is the perfect setting for Ford and Isabel's romance. I really liked Three Little Words and I will be reading more books by this author.

Kept my interest. The characters were mostly believable. I did feel like the author rushed the ending just a bit but nonetheless I really enjoyed the book.
