Favorite Quotes:

Gia was Canadian, so admittedly, her impression of southern American culture was based on Duck Dynasty and the William Faulkner novels she’d read in her one year as a literature major, but this dude, with his drawl and his falsely pretty manners, sounded like he belonged in a rom-com romancing Reese Witherspoon.

A little smile played at the corner of her lips as she stared at his lap with unbroken concentration, like she was a Jedi master with the power to make men po

A sweet love story that will make you smile swoon and crave southern cooking!

He doesn’t do hook ups, she doesn’t do relationships. Love this a classic trope turned on its head. This is the third book in the Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series, but it can absolutely be read as a standalone. The books in this series are full of fun, friendship, sizzle, steam, romance, and love! I love strong female friendships in books and these three girls have one of the best I have read. A group of girls you wou

Three Little Words is the third and final installment of Jenny Holiday's Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series. This book focuses on Gia and Bennett, and their road trip from hell. It's a little sad to let this series go but I have to say, I really think it ended on a high note. Gia and Bennett were really fun to read about and I loved there was a bit of role reversal in who wanted a fling more. I feel like it's becoming a trend where romance heroes are the ones rootin

This is third in a series and the friend-group is pretty tight-knit and present. Actually, for much of the book the couple is on their own and away from friends, but the latter section is almost all friend-group adjacent. At any rate, I recommend reading these in order.

While I've found Gia interesting as a side-character, I had qualms about her taking a lead. She has an overt "One and done. Two and through." policy on "relationships" and I just knew that'd be a negative motivation* with monster

Loved, loved, loved this book! This series has been nothing but pure fun for me. Not only have they got deliciously swoony romances, but the books feature one of the most amazing groups of fictional girlfriends. With Three Little Words being the last book in the series, I was quite sad to dive into it, but Jenny Holiday made it such a treat to devour this story. If you're ever in the mood for fun contemporary romances, the Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series should be at the top of your lists

Three Little Words by Jenny Holiday is the third novel in her romantic comedy series, Bridesmaids Behaving Badly. It’s centered around a group of female friends and their weddings, and the whole series has been a joy to read, this one included!

Gia Gallo is turning into a ‘bridesmaid-zilla’. She’s desperate to get her friend Wendy (heroine of It Takes Two) her wedding dress for the ceremony in Florida by Saturday – and with six days to go, NYC is on lockdown from a winter storm. As it turns out,
Tanja ~ T's Book ~ KT Book Reviews

ALL THE THINGS! This book has all the things I love. It’s a deliciously, sexy, swoony, smokin hot chemistry laden, hilariously snarky book! Woo... that's a lot of adjectives. ((smiles))

Check out the blurb for all the in-depth details, but stay here for the down and dirty. Get the book. Don’t read too many reviews, you don't want spoilers. Just know that you are in for a great ride, pun intended, with Gia and Bennett. One of the best situational romance comedies I’ve read in a while.

Three Little Words is the third standalone in the Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series. Forever Romance was kind enough to send me a copy of this cute read and I am truly thankful! My overall impressions of this story is that it is sweet, fun, and sexy! The author uses a role reversal in this one too making it feel original and fun.

I think I have been hesitant to write about this book because I can't possibly formulate the appropriate words to tell you how incredibly good this book is. It was a fantastic close to a fantastic series.

In previous books Gia didn't seem like she would be my favorite. Because I really love Jane. And adored Wendy. But Gia, oh man, Gia blew me away. She's lacking roots. She's struggling with her body. Struggled with who she is and where she fits it. She is a loyal friend. She is determined to get

It is always with great hesitation, that I finish a series. Not only am I sad to say that final farewell to characters I have grown to love, but I also worry that the ending won't satisfy me. Rest assured, Holiday gave this group of fabulous women a fantastic send-off!

I love when authors save the character, who seems the least likely to settle down, for the final book. This character's story is usually very emotional, and I would say Gia's fits the bill.

She had her one-and-done, two-and-through

Gia and Bennett are trying to make it to Noah and Wendy’s wedding. They are snowed in at the airport and their first interaction is rocky. They decide to make the best of the situation. As the story progresses they get to know each other and realize they judge each other without really knowing all the facts. We do find out some stuff about each character that took me by surprise.

As much as I liked Gia and Bennett, I really didn’t feel a connection. They only spent a few days together after meet

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 som

Three Little Words by Jenny Holiday is book Three in the Bridesmaids Behaving Badly Series. This is the story of Gia Gallo and Bennett Buchanan. I have read the previous books and that did add to my enjoyment of their story. Gia is headed to a wedding but ends up getting stuck along with Bennett. The two are now having to spend time together where they start learning more about the other. Both having different outlooks on relationship but the more they get to know one another the more their thou ...more

I zipped right through these books and I'm sad that the reading adventure is over. Gia's book was just as awesome as I was expecting after finishing the other books in this series and I was not disappointed. Bennett was a fabulous hero and I just adored seeing these two come together in love. I know it's only January but already, this is my favorite girl squad. These four ladies (Jane, Wendy, Elise, and Gia) were amazing together and I love how their love for each other was strong in each and ev ...more

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

A great ending to the Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series. At first I was not a big fan of Gia. In fact, I would say that she was the first of the bridesmaids in this series who was actually behaving badly. So many things about her rubbed me the wrong way. But as I read I started to examine my feelings a little deeper. When I thought about the things about Gia that bugged me, I noticed that I have read a ton of books where the male leads have the same thoughts and actions, and I always give them a ...more

I have been dying to read Bennett's story since the moment Wendy and Noah walked into his restaurant in It Takes Two. I'm pretty sure I finished that book and immediately went hunting for the blurb for the next book in the series (this book!) and let out a very loud whoop of joy when I saw the leading man would, in fact, be the hot chef with the Cajun restaurant and just dripping with Southern charm. YES. All the yes. It was also really wonderful to get to know more about Gia, who I feel like wa ...more

Honestly, folks, I’m scared to take a reading-breath, I’ve had SUCH a run of great books since New Year’s and Holiday’s Three Little Words gets on that list too. Not that I’m complaining, but as an introvert and pessimist, I do wonder: when will the reading ball drop?

So, Holiday’s #3 of Bridesmaids Behaving Badly: I wasn’t super-keen going in because, while I enjoyed #2, it didn’t rock my world. I liked it well enough and I especially liked Holiday’s smooth, easy-as-pie prose. There were also in

Stars: Overall 3 Narration 3 Story 2.5

Having gone back and forth with this series, and particularly the characters and clichés, this installment was no different and as it focused on Gia – she of the outrageous temper tantrums, less than charitable thoughts about others and a general sense of spoiled rotten without real depth – it proved to be more and less difficult than I thought.

Three Little Words is the third book in Jenny Hale's Brides Behaving Badly series. It can be read as a standalone, without reading the first two because that's exactly what I did and I thoroughly enjoyed.

When anti commitment Gia and relationships only Bennett find themselves stuck in a car together as they road trip from NY to FL for their friends wedding, their physical reaction to each other make things complicated. The both feel an undeniable pul

I’ve enjoyed every novel in this series (though I haven’t read Elise’s novella). Each one of them has, to some degree or other, a prickly, self-protective heroine (which is my catnip). And Gia is Queen Prickle.

My double-catnip is when you pair one of these heroines with someone who is a caretaker. Not someone who tries to do everything for her, or protect her from the world, or (ICK) fight her battles for her, but someone who pays attention to her and makes her life a little easier.

Gia is a mod

I was wondering how I would respond to Gia's book as she is the one of the group I've felt least attached too, but I actually loved this. It is my favorite in the trilogy (the I do like the Elise novellas more). Gia and Bennett don't exactly hit it off right away. They are so vastly different in the way they handle their issues. And both of them have a lot of issues. An unplanned road trip later and they are getting along extremely well. However, they have very different ways of approaching rela ...more

Bennett Buchanan has a bad impression of model Gia Gallo from the moment he meets her at the airport, where they are both stranded after a snow storm makes it impossible to fly out of NYC to make it to their best friends' wedding in Florida. She's crabby, she's causing a fuss, but she also tells Bennett she's hungry.

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!

The 2nd half of this book is the best part because in the 1st half I had a hard time liking the heroine, she came across as high maintenance, neurotic and bitchy. But the 2nd half makes her more likeable by showing her vulnerabilities. Both the h/H have a lot of baggage. The H from his misspent youth, the h by having always been valued for her beauty.
