Three Simple Words combines a few different tropes to create a charming story of two people who view love very differently. Annie is not just an older woman, (she’s 28, not old[er], just older than Wes!) and the sister of Wes’s best friend Jeremy. By day she’s an independent bookseller but by night she’s a romance blogger/reviewer. No matter how horrible her previous relationships have ended she’s never given up hope that live will come to her, and that that love will conquer all.
Wes grew up viewing his parent’s relationship as something volatile and not very loving. It helped him to believe that love will not be in the cards for him. He does do relationships, but only those that he knows will not go anywhere; the quintessential playboy if you will. After his debut novel, a not!Romance, makes the New York Times bestsellers list he finds himself blocked and has no plans to unblock that creativity. He heads home to Chicago where he meets up with Annie who surprisingly becomes his muse and so much more.
Both Annie and Wes are easy to relate to and I think a lot of readers will agree. They read like everyday people who struggle with their love lives and if they truly think love is in the cards for them. They are wickedly funny individuals as well; I found myself laughing so much at her t-shirts and his uncanny knack of running into exes. I seriously adored this Annie and Wes’s story. They bring out what is good about the romance genre- the hope it brings to millions of readers.
A.J. Pine was a new author to me, and what a wonderful discovery this book was! I just love Ms. Pine’s writing style: her prose is understated, precise, and utterly delightful. The dialogues are brilliantly simple, the characters sound natural and young; everything invites you in their circle. The story is unpretentious, the pace is brisk, and everything flows so well, it’s a joy to read. It’s all the little details that make THREE SIMPLE WORDS magical instead of the predictable story it could have been. Annie has a blog, HappyEverAfter, and the blog entries are a very nice touch, there are humorous little things here and there, glimpses of a struggling author’s daily life, clever twists on familiar tropes, and what misunderstandings happen are very skilfully handled. The banter between Annie and her friend and account manager Brynn, as well as between Jeremy and Wes is terrific. THREE SIMPLE WORDS is a book I thoroughly enjoyed, it was one of the best surprises of the year, and I will be looking forward to A.J. Pine’s future offerings: THREE SIMPLE WORDS is worth every second of your time!
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
I highly recommend this book.
