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.

Gia has always piqued an interest in me since the very beginning of this series. I've never read a book about a model so I was very intrigued by her lifestyle. While the rest of the books gave us a snippet of what her life was like, in Three Little Words we get more of a close-up look. It was fascinating, especially because we get to see the serious anxiety that Gia goes through as she was nearing the upper-end of a model's age. A lot of the book revolved around her fear of the future, her self-worth, and how she slowly figures out a potential new career path. Gia's complicated relationship with food and her body image were also at the center of Three Little Words, a topic that the author tackled with sensitivity and care. There were a few times when I wanted to cry because I may not be a model, but as women, we are so hard on ourselves and Gia's thoughts resonated with me on a profound level. Besides that, I adored her sweet and loyal personality. She was so devoted to her friends and their happiness - it totally warmed my heart to see the lengths she would go for them.

Then there was Bennett, the hero of the book and stealer of my heart. All of the men in this series have been swoony beyond words, but this guy was just my favorite. He was a chef (#bemine) with such an exciting passion for not only cooking but also for feeding people who may not have the means to. Bennett was kind, insightful and honest. I just loved him so much. Much of his issues revolved around the tension between him and his family. Despite it all, he hadn't let his complicated relationships become a hurdle in his life. I also have to mention how refreshing it was to have a hero here who was looking for commitment and who uncannily declined any invitations to hook-ups. When Bennett and Gia meet, they don't start off on the right foot, but slowly a bond grows between the two and let me tell you, the sparks were just out of this world. Their attraction to each other, the banter and the deep conversations they had only served to grow them as individuals and as a couple as they went on this road trip to get to Wendy's wedding. Of course, it was also a complete delight when the girls were reunited. I love love love how supportive these women are of each other.

Three Little Words was just the perfect way to wrap up the Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series. It made me smile, swoon and even shed a tear. I couldn't have asked for a better story for Gia!
