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.

In Review: My Thoughts
Jenny Holiday’s Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series is a breath of fresh air. I’ve been totally enamored with each character, couple and book since the very beginning. I was excited to get to the last chapter of this series — and finally get Gia’s story — and it in no way disappointed. In fact, it’s probably my favorite of the series. I adored everything about it.
Man oh man, did I love Gia and Bennett. They played so well off each other and their chemistry was A+. I love a good road trip story and Gia and Bennett’s was so perfect. I mean, hello, they went to South of the Border! What’s a trip down (or up) I95 without a stop at South of the Border?! They made me laugh and swoon and I read nearly all of this book with a big cheesy grin on my face. It wasn’t just the romance that made my heart happy, it was the friendships. Gia and her girls are goals. (And so are Bennett and his boys.) I read Three Little Words on Galentine’s Day and it was the perfect time to do it.
I’m a big fan of a good epilogue and OMG did Jenny ever deliver in Three Little Words. I won’t say too much because you deserve to get all the heart eyes — and a few tears — but it was EVERYTHING. It was the perfect way to close out the series. I get a little teary-eyed just thinking about it, tbh. I’m going to miss these characters, the friendships and relationships, but I love how everything wrapped up. I’ll be keeping an eye out to see what Jenny gives us next. I’m here for it. She’s easily one of my new favorite authors.
“I don’t want to be anyone’s girlfriend. I also don’t want to mislead anyone. So I make sure I don’t.”
“When your whole point in life is to be good-looking, it’s hard to find people who actually like you for you.”
Fuck her rules. Fuck his rules. They could call this whatever she liked that made it okay: casual, a hookup, a booty call. Because this was not over. No fucking way.
“I’m not going to try to control you. I know it’s not my job to fix you. I don’t even think you’re broken.”
