Oh my god.


Let me say this again.

Oh my God.

Sigh. Sigh. It's been a while since I felt this way at the end of a book.

Okay, I know it's Brayden, and she's a genius, and she writes delicious lesbian romance novels, but this one reaches new levels of awesomeness.
Oh lorrrd, the feels. My whole body is alive right now. My heart is beating fast and I'm ridiculously out of breath. I feel almost high. It's the first time I'm actually thinking about reading a book again right after finishing it.

Do I actually need to write this review? Seriously you are planning on reading this right? I mean if you are a lesbian and you love romance then you probably have Melissa Brayden on auto-read and I am just wasting time by writing an unnecessary review. I could be off reviewing that book I just read that I hated, but instead I am blathering on about another great Melissa Brayden novel.

And yes its great. (But you already knew that.) This story continues the lives of our favorite Soho Loft girls f

This was a lovely continuation of Kiss the Girl, but this time favorites Sam and Hunter take the reins. Hunter is a confident, laid-back, gorgeous flirt and Sam is a quirky, accountant nerd with self-image issues after a recent breakup. The two could not be more opposite which is half the fun. With a rent increase and Brooklyn moving out, Hunter decides to be Sam's new room mate. After a couple of awkward situations and a college crush confession the two inadvertentl
Something special happened here. I'd started reading this back in April and somehow returned to it. This is a big deal! It feels like the few regulars in my 'currently reading' list would be there perpetually. So, on a whim, I reopened Melissa Brayden's 'Just Three Words' on a morning train ride to work.

I previously put this on hold because I wasn't connecting with the characters. That's actually been one of my 'things' about the Soho Loft series. While I enjoy the cast of ladies, I've yet to r

To paraphrase Shakespeare in Love - "You see - comedy, love, and a bit with a dog. That's what they want."

I laughed, I cried and I fell in love.

Best book I have read this year.

Please Ms Brayden, please finish writing the last of the trilogy now (and I also should put in a word for at least a couple of spin offs...).

When I first heard that Sam the super-efficient accountant and Hunter the laid-back player was going to be paired in this book I was skeptical. Really? Whatever did they see in each other. No sparks or chemistry or even any vibes at all in the first book. But...its a Melissa Brayden, so I'll read it, but maybe after I'm done with all the sci-fi, fantasy, mysteries, dramas and thrillers that are crying for my attention. :) Or maybe even skip it altogether, and just wait for Soho 3 - Mallory's sto ...more

Reread. Was wondering if I would still love it as much as I thought I did the first time. The answer was absolutely!!
5+ STARS for the audiobook!

This is a reread but this time I listened to the audiobook. It's not often that you can say that the audiobook is better than reading the book yourself, but Felicity Monroe is now my favorite narrator. She doesn't read the book she performs and she doesn't "over act" it. At one point I read along with her, and that is when I really appreciated her performance. Her voices for the leads, especially Sam & Hunter are perfect. I listened to another narrator attempt to d

I finally got around to reading this. I was being really lazy and I think this is one of the best decisions I've made recently.

So... I've said that I've seen this ship sail since KTG. If there really was no indication there, you can just call me thirsty. Haha!

*stops fangirling*

*clears throat*

This has been a real joy to read. Great mix of fluff, friendship, angst, family, and romance. I was giggling, then I was crying but I was left with warm fuzzy feels in the pit of my stomach by the end of it

Well, Melissa did it again. This lady certainly knows how to write romance, so if that's not your thing (often sappy, sometimes sexy, always cute and adorable) then it's probably best you read something else. This book is all about the romance.

When I first read Kiss The Girl - which is the first book in the Soho Loft series - I wasn't really focusing on anything but the two main protagonists, so Sam and Hunter kind of passed me by. I actually didn't much care for Hunter at all in that book. All

This is Samantha and Hunter's story. Brayden has the romance trilogy formula down pat. Like the queen of the romantic trilogy Nora Roberts, there are rules to be followed. Identify the women who will be central to the current book. Samantha and Hunter, check. Mention the couple from the previous book and have them on page for a short period of time. Brook and Jessica, check. Mention who will be the star of the final book in the trilogy and mention something about their personality but leave the ...more

♥♥♥ LOVED IT! ♥♥♥

Another AMAZING novel by Melissa Brayden! Each book gets better and better!

Seriously, do yourself a favor and jump on board the Melissa Brayden Express.

Really looking forward to the last instalment of the Soho Loft Trilogy in November! Can. Not. Wait!
Just a man's point of view
Melissa Brayden is the best! As simple as that.
She doesn't focus on crime or on supernatural or tragedy or whatever. She writes romance and comedies. But in her field she is incredible! Dialogues are just perfect. Feelings are compelling. Humour is quiet but pervades all her novels.
Great author indeed. And she is only at the beginning.

I have discovered I have a "thing" for lesbian nerds. Hence my love for sweet Sam in this book. I was so glad to see Sam get a happy ending. Although with Melissa Brayden, that's par for the course.
May 06, 2015 rated it it was ok
I am quite sad that I've had to give this book only 2 stars. Considering the kind of 'love complications' that Brayden has handled in her other books - class differences, different career ambitions, falling in love with the sister-in-law, and love between business rivals - this one was a disappointment. Is old friends falling in love such a big no-no? And only because they work together? I'm not so sure.

While Brayden's other stories had difficulties inherent in them, this one seemed like it was

Love love love Melissa Brayden's work and this one is no exception as well!

First of all - though this can be read as a standalone, if you have not read "Kiss the Girl", I'd strongly recommend starting from there. You'll understand a lot more of the humour, personalities and dynamics which will only help you to enjoy the story more.

Just Three Words briefly picked up from where it's been left off at Kiss the Girl, where Brooks has been falling in love with Jessica and is ready in taking the next s

Melissa Brayden's romances are really hard not to like. She definitely has a gift when it comes to writing romance. I find myself really enjoying these SOHO Loft books. The characters are likable and it's nice that we are getting the individual stories of the four mains in each book. I'm looking forward to reading the next book about Mallory, as shes more of a mystery than the others.
If you enjoy a nice sweet f/f romance, these books are for you. I would recommend reading book 1 first, as you ge
The following review can be found on my blog The FarNerdy Blog and was made possible by an ARC from NetGalley.

"Just Three Words" is the 2nd installment to the SoHo Loft Series that Brayden began last July (2014) with Kiss the Girl. Focusing on a new set of the ferocious foursome that makes up the Soho Savvy Advertising Agency, "Just Three Words" follows accountant Samantha Ennis through her New York lifestyle, including her work at Soho Savvy with her 3 best friends, her breakup with the woman s
Good thing I didn't give up on Melissa Brayden. Kiss the Girl was disappointing, but Just Three Words is exactly what I expect from a friends-to-lovers story!

Samantha is nice, but Hunter is just perfect. My favorite moment is when she (view spoiler). And when I thought Hunter couldn’t be more swoon-worthy, she (view spoiler).

This story is VERY predictable, but who am I to judge? I've read it tw
Bree Paige

So this is the second Book that I've read from Melissa Brayden. At first I thought it was just simple story with predictable ending

But It made me felt everything, this is the only book that really made me cry. But it has alot of funny dialogues and also a Love scene that I really enjoy..

My Verdict

5 amazing Star for you... well written. The flow of the story was amazing..

My first f/f!!! I accidentally read this one before the first in the series, and when I realised it was the second I was already so into the main trope here that I didn't want to go back. FRIENDS IN LOVE.

My very favourite thing about this was how much it felt like a book WITH WOMEN. Like, just the way the story unfolds, the kind of acknowledgment they have of each other and the way they work things out. And the way they talk to each other, and about each other; that kind of shorthand - all of t

I had a ball with this book. It was exactly what I was in the mood for, and I knew from page one that I was in good hands.

I've read most of Brayden's work, and she is always a capable writer. This book follows on from a previous work of hers, 'Kiss the Girl', which introduces the four main characters. Best friends from college, the four lesbians start an advertising firm in Soho in New York.

The first book focuses on one of the characters, account manager Brooklyn, and her romance. This one focu

This is again a great story from Melissa Brayden. I liked it almost as much as I liked the first book, however Kiss the Girl's plot was a little bit more exciting for me.

What I liked most in this book, that I could find little pieces of myself both in Sam's quirky habits and in Hunter's love for puzzles. :)

I can't wait to find out what the future will bring for Mallory.
