Product Description

The road to true love never did run smooth, but a few bumps along the way make it all the more thrilling. This timeless truth is showcased in Three Little Words, a charming compilation of short stories written by a trio of popular LDS romance novelists. Readers are invited to follow the journeys of three young women as they encounter love where they least expect it.

  • Rescuing Bailey by Jennie Hansen

    For as long as she can remember, Bailey has loved the boy next door. But despite her feelings, his schedule and his little brother keep getting in the way. Will her childhood crush finally blossom into something real, or will she discover that true love is waiting just around the corner?

  • Three Little Words by K.C. Grant

    The bet is simple: Elizabeth, a speech therapist, has three days to teach a country bumpkin with a drawl as thick as molasses how to speak like a gentleman. But as she gets to know her charming student, it soon becomes clear that there may be more to him than meets the ear.

  • A Crying Shame by Aubrey Mace

    Cassidy is in love with the idea of love, though after her most recent breakup, the possibility of finding Mr. Right seems hopeless. But when she meets a handsome classmate in her painting class, she may end up learning more about chemistry than about art.

Fun!
By , Submitted on 2016-01-15

This was such a fun read! I haven't read much by these authors so that peaked my interest in it even more. I'm happy to say that I enjoyed each one of these stories! They each had a different feel and I liked that, too.

Rescuing Bailey: Bailey has loved Dieter, her next-door neighbor, for years. Something happens and she leaves town by accepting a job in Chicago. Her father's heart attack brings her back and she has to face the situation that caused her to leave in the first place. My heart broke for Baily at the beginning of the story. I kept hoping things would work out the way I wanted them to and they did!

Three Little Words: This is My Fair Lady in reverse. Elizabeth is a speech therapist who makes a bet with her roommates that she can transform someone's speech within three days. They get to choose and Matt appears to be the perfect candidate. He has some secrets of his own, though. It wasn't hard to see the collision course their relationship was on but it was a fun journey.

A Crying Shame: This story was hilarious! Cassidy's boyfriend, Colby, recently broke up with her and she is a hot mess. Her choice of lounging attire cracked me up! Her best friend, Elle, takes her out one night to paint. Cassidy's not thrilled to be there but then she meets Max and the flirting began. The majority of this story took place in one night and what a night it was! I laughed out loud a lot while reading this one.

The final story entertained me the most but I thought the entire book was well done. I look forward to reading more from each of these authors in the future!

I received a copy from the publisher for an honest review. My opinion is 100% my own.

Sweet romantic anthology
By , Submitted on 2016-01-15

This anthology has three quick-paced novellas. Each of the authors seemed to be experts in their field and the book was easy to read and well-laid out and designed. In Rescuing Bailey, the heroine has been in love with her next door neighbor, Dieter, for years. When she gets home from college, she expects a marriage proposal since they have dated for so long, but instead she gets blindsided. Escaping to Chicago for a job opportunity, she nurses her broken heart for three years until her dad has a heart attack. Returning to Utah scares her, but she does what she must. Will her heart ever heal, or will she find love where she least expects it?

In Three Little Words, Elizabeth is a speech therapist who helps people sound smart. When her friends make a bet that she has three days to turn a hick-speaking cowboy into an educated man with no accent, she takes them up on it. But when she gets to know the man beneath the cowboy hat and lingo, her heart gets tangled up and she doesn’t know what to do. She risks losing her independence and pride, but hearts don’t seem to care about trivial things like that.

In A Crying Shame, Cassidy has just told her boyfriend that she loves him. When he doesn't return those words, or even fake an attempt, she is ready to give up on love. But her friend, Elle, won’t allow her to hide away in her room with her pregnant pet gerbil forever. She forces her to a Paint Nite, where she meets a guy who charms her despite her intention to never fall for a man again.

Each of these stories were enjoyable and could be read in a single setting. Even though they were short (which is why I rated the book 4 instead of 5), there was enough character development that I liked the characters and laughed at a few witty dialogue sections. This seemed to be a very professional anthology and I would definitely recommend it to romance aficionados. Like a chocolate chip cookie, it was solid and filled my need for a sweet read.

*** I was given this book for free from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Sweet, clean fun
By , Submitted on 2016-01-06

I love a good, clean romance and three novellas in one book is always a bonus! Novellas seem to be quite popular right now and they are a great way to get a quick fix in a short amount of time. Each story is unique with a common thread--love.

With Rescuing Bailey, the reader is given a sweet "boy next door" kind of romance, with the story of an unrequited childhood love. Bailey has a knack for being so in love with the idea of being in love, that she sells herself short time and again. She's a girl with her head in the clouds, but is determined to prove herself as being the opposite.

Three Little Words is a fun story. Elizabeth's friends give her three days to prove that her speech skills can be taught to anyone and they've decided that Matt, a Texas hick, is her student. She tries hard to change him to help him be more successful in society, the workplace, etc. They're both fun characters and their encounters are entertaining.

In A Crying Shame, Cassidy is almost desperate at first. She wants love, but feels it's a hopeless cause for her. And the *surprise*! What a fun first meet! I loved this one and absolutely adored the characters. Cassidy has a great relationship with her best friend and the romance in this one is so swoony and sweet.

These are all great stories and a great way to start off the new year. I recommend this book to readers who love good, clean, romantic fun!

Content: mild romance (kissing); mild religious elements in the second story. Clean!
