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.

THREE LITTLE WORDS brings me to a bittersweet moment, I’ve loved the Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series so much and it’s always a sad moment when that journey with book friends comes to an ending.
Gia has been an intriguing character from the start. It would be very easy to see her as one dimensional, rude and self-centered yet there are layers to this complicated woman that we get to see first-hand in her romance with Bennett. Gia has always been fiercely loyal to her friends and it’s not surprising that she ends up taking a road trip with a wedding dress and the best man. He might be sexy as sin but Gia isn’t looking for more than a momentary fling… she has other things on her mind that are far more important than beginning something permanent with this Southern charmer. Maybe.
As always, Gia and Bennett’s romance is about so much more than two people falling in love. There are serious issues faced and discussed in THREE LITTLE WORDS, ones that are very real. I’m always impressed with how Jenny Holiday handles sensitive subjects in her stories, nothing is glossed over and we get a slice of real life for her characters.
If you’ve followed the adventures of these bridesmaids and one bride then you’ll be certain to enjoy Gia’s story. I was emotionally engaged with her character and completely enjoyed discovering the woman beneath the bark she usually shows. I would not hesitate to recommend this story or any in this series to Romance readers who enjoy realistic stories, characters you can believe in and a happily ever after ending… eventually.
