Three Little Words (Fool's Gold #13) by Susan Mallery
Fool's Gold is a town that has lots of festivals all year round. It is a community that gathers together to help each other in good or bad times. We have met many of the characters in previous books and get to visit and see how they are all doing. Three Little Words is fun full of humor, fun characters, too many detailed sex scenes, enjoyable place to visit and meet new friends and say hello to old friends. It is always good to visit for a good time.
It is finally Ford Hendrix story. We have heard about Ford Hendrix for along while. He is still running scared from his mom and sisters. But he is back living in town. Ford is drumming up a lot of sales for his body guard business. He is now living above a garage in a apartment at the Beebe's house.
Isabel Beebe is living in her parent's house and taking care of the Bridal store. She plans to run it while her parents are traveling around the world. With plans to get the store ready for sale and then she is returning to New York to start her own business.
Isabel finally goes to Ford's place of work and tells him that she is not a stocker. That when she was 14 she thought she loved him. Now she is grown up and is embarrassed at all the letters she mailed him. He does need to be afraid of her. especially since they are neighbors.
Ford was not avoiding. He did receive her letters while in the navy and they reminded him of life back in the states. They helped him to be grounded.
Ford's mom is driving him crazy wanting him to get married. She even took a booth at one of the towns festivals taking applications to be Ford and Kent's wife. With big posters of Ford and Kent. His sisters even get on him to date one of the women his mom had picked up. Ford told them he was already dating Isabel.
Now Ford had to talk her into pretending to be in a relationship. Whatever Isabel wanted sex or no sex.

Can first love turn into the real deal? Anything can happen in a sizzling new Fool's Gold story from New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery.
Isabel Beebe thinks she's cursed in the romance department. Her teenage crush, Ford Hendrix, ignored all her letters. Her husband left her for another...man. So Isabel has come home to dust off her passion for fashion and run the family bridal shop until her parents are ready to sell it. Then she'll pursue her real dreams. At least, that's the plan, until sexy, charming Ford returns and leaves her feeling fourteen all over again.....
Seeing Isabel all grown-up hits bodyguard trainer Ford like a sucker punch. Back when heartbreak made him join the military, her sweet letters kept him sane. Now he can't take his eyes-or his lips-off her. The man who gave up on love has a reason to stay in Fool's Gold forever-if three little words can convince Isabel to do the same.
