Review Time: Three Empty Words by Gen Ryan

by - 7:45 PM


Melanie Smith has spent her entire life waiting for her happy ever after. For a moment there, everything is hunky-dory until her boyfriend falls in love with another man. Trying to move on, she makes every effort to find "the one."

Watching everyone around her find love, leaving her knee-deep in spinster status, Melanie decides on a new path: become a surrogate for her ex-turned-best friend. She doesn't bargain on a two-for-one deal: a baby for bestie... and a new man.

Join Melanie on her journey as she navigates the highs and lows, the cravings and confusion of love and trying to find meaning in those three empty words.


This was a fun book, yet just a little heartbreaking.  How much rejection can one girl take?!?!?  

Melanie was a very resilient girl!  No lie!  I was super thrilled that she just didn't lay down and be pitiful!  Gen Ryan did a great job with her.  Sure she had her moments, but at least she had a great sense of humor and a really big heart!  Out of her tough circumstances, she made a fun little family that worked for her.

I laughed so much during reading this...I could not believe some of the things that flew out that girls mouth!  Sometimes when you are reading, it's nice to take a break from hardcore, high angst books and just get something that tickles your funny bone a little bit.  Three Empty Words did just that for me.  It also helps that the new man turned up the temperature in this read.  And that he really enjoyed her little "family", awe!

I will definitely be recommending this book to my friends.

I laughed during this book...a lot...and cried too.  Just because I ran the gamut of emotions while reading, Three Empty Words is getting 5 stars from me.
