It’s always wonderful to read a nice romance novel. This time I got the chance to review Susan Mallery’s Three Little Words and it was such a delight. I loved the characters and the story line was oh so sweet. It’s actually 2 love stories in one, because you follow along with 2 couples falling in love. It’s just a nice little perk to the book.
When she was fourteen, Isabel vowed she would love military-bound Ford Hendrix forever. But after endless unanswered letters to her former crush, and one disastrous marriage to a man who turned out to be gay, Isabel is finished with romance for good—at least until she fulfills her dream of moving to New York and taking the fashion world by storm. But when former navy Seal Ford returns to town, more charming and sexy than ever, Isabel can’t help feeling like a crazy love-struck teenager all over again.
Ford joined the navy fourteen years ago suffering from a broken heart and determined to avoid all future emotional attachments. Unfortunately, now that bodyguard trainer Ford is home for good, he has to deal with his persevering mother, who is just as determined to marry her bachelor son off as he is to stay single.
To keep his mother off his back, Ford convinces Isabel to pretend to be his girlfriend until she leaves for New York. Even though it’s hard for him to keep his hands off the formerly scrawny kid who’s grown up in all the right ways, Ford is determined to protect the emotionally fragile girl whose treasured letters kept him sane during his service.
Every kiss and touch, however, has both Ford and Isabel wondering how pretend this fake relationship actually is. She’s stirring up emotions in Ford that no one ever has before, while Ford is making Isabel think twice about her plans to leave town. Despite their doubts, however, both Ford and Isabel believe nothing can sway them—not even three little words….
Susan Mallery is just a wonderful writer. There seems to be 2 books before this book that go together in a series. But you don’t have to read them to follow along with the novel. But I am going to check it out. I have reviewed another Susan Mallery novel, Three Sisters, that was just as great if you are looking for something else from her.
