Book Review: Three Little Words

40057347

Three Little Words by Jenny Holiday– 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 Rating: 4 Stars

My Thoughts: To be honest I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy this book as I read the first chapter. Gia initially came across as a selfish, stuck up, entitled brat. I didn’t care for how she treated service personnel- she was rude and demanding and prone to losing her temper when she didn’t get her way. I found it hard to connect with her at first- she’s basically the type of person that I avoid at all costs. By contrast, Bennett was the kind of character that is swoon-worthy. He was a true Southern gentleman with manners and pretty much the complete opposite of Gia. He had big dreams of using his restaurant to feed the less fortunate and was completely focused on making amends for some dark things in his past. 

I love books that feature a road trip. Bad weather forces Gia and Bennett together in a convertible Mini Cooper in the middle of winter for a long car trip to get to a wedding. It was during the car trip that I started to see a whole other side to Gia. I started to understand her and even like her. She was a model and with that came body image issues and food issues and never knowing if people liked her for herself or for her image. I found myself sympathizing with her. Bennett understood her. He saw underneath the facade to the real woman beneath. There was a lot of witty banter, hot sexy times, amazing friendships, and fun. This is book 3 in a series but I haven’t read the other ones. I definitely will read them now!
