Publisher's Summary

From USA Today and Amazon Charts best-selling author Meghan Quinn comes a brand-new romantic comedy about a one-night stand gone completely wrong. Laugh-out-loud and steamy with a heart-stopping happily ever after.

I knocked up my best friend's sister.

Figured I would get straight to the point, because how it happened is a mere snippet of the story I have to tell. The real meat and potatoes is what happened after.

Let's start with how she decided to inform me and Pacey the news...together. Imagine that nightmare. I was going into what I thought was a hockey marketing meeting, and then bam! I'm going to be a dad and my best friend/teammate is attempting to imprint my face with his fist. 

It wasn't pretty. 

Threats were tossed around, friendships were revoked, and then I was marched up to her apartment, suitcases in hand, and forced to live with her so I could take care of her every need. Given how much I've pined for the girl, you would think that wouldn't be a hardship. Wrong. 

This is my one shot to win my teammate back. Pacey is the only family I've got, so hooking up with his sister isn't a mistake I can make twice...despite the fact that she's pregnant with my child. 

But with every mood swing, every pair of pants that doesn't fit right, and every late night run to find the perfect donut, I'm finding it harder and harder not to fall for my best friend's little sister.

Especially when she kisses me....

Eli is Swoony!

Overall, great read. I will say that the heroine’s hormonal antics were honestly an embarrassment to pregnant women everywhere. Just way too OVER-THE-TOP! Other than that, I really enjoyed this story. Loved Eli! Fantastic narration.

Laugh-out-loud, swoon-worthy romance!!

Sweet delicious awkward apples! Those Three Little Words by Meghan Quinn was a laugh-out-loud accidental pregnancy romance I didn’t know I needed in my life! Meghan is the queen of witty hilarious banter and smooth steamy dirty talk that will have you completely and utterly cheering and swooning over Eli and Penny to find their very own HEA with their new family of three.

This audiobook is narrated in duet by Kelsey Navarro and Teddy Hamilton, and wow did they both deliver in all the best ways! This may be one of my new favorite performances by them both. Kelsey gives so much life to strong, determined Penny. I loved how well Kelsey portrayed the various stages of hormonal, pregnant Penny. From uncomfortable, to super turned on, to just a bit crazy; Kelsey makes you feel all the things in her performance! Teddy Hamilton was sinful and swoony as Eli Hornsby. Teddy also does an amazing job showcasing Eli’s vulnerable side from his past but also conveys his caring, and loyal side as he cares for Penny. (so dreamy!) Kelsey and Teddy will also make you chuckle with their spot-on comedic timing, and burn up your earbuds with Eli and Penny’s steamy chemistry.

Overall, I loved this book! If you love an accidental pregnancy romance with a hot hunky hockey player, a sassy fierce social media influencer, a wild birthday night to remember, a protective older brother, awkward text exchanges, apples, watching Ozark, all the hormonal pregnancy outbursts, Dr. Big Pecs, lots and lots of spicy times (whew!), gummy bears, unexpected parent visits, and a HEA that will melt your heart and make you swoon over those three little words, then you will adore Eli and Penny’s story! This book may now be one of my absolute favorites, and I always look forward to more from Meghan Quinn!

Love Eli but Penny…

It’s been awhile since I wanted to leave a review for this book but I didn’t seem to find the right words to it to express my correct emotions. I rewrote this several times and here’s what I think:

Everything that I loved - Eli. He’s everything good that this story has. He’s sweet, talented and once he finds out that his teammate sister who he had a hot night together, is pregnant, he changes everything to make right by her. At some point he even goes to therapy to deal with his abandonment issues. He threats her so well and although he doesn’t say the words, he shows her through actions his ultimate love for her.

I also laughed out loud with the appearances of his friends and also in the beginning of this book when Eli and Penny didn’t know how to properly communicate and said the most funny and absurd things to each other.

The Downfall - Penny. Honestly, at beginning I thought she was funny and dealing with discover of her pregnancy must be hard. But then, talk about a 180. Her antics wasn’t funny anymore, they were downright pitiful and mean, especially towards Eli. She seemed like a 2 year old kid throwing a tantrum when she didn’t get what she wanted. I really couldn’t sympathize with her, at all. There was no excuse for her behavior.

I love surprise pregnancy tropes and if you want to read this book, go with your mind open in Penny related and be ready to love Eli, with all your strength. There’s also good hockey scenes which I enjoyed as well.

Good Story but Annoying Female

I have read almost every one of M. Quinn’s books and I absolutely love them! Her stories are top notch and her characters are so easy to fall in love with! With her characters light hearted humor and steamy one liners they usually become very down-to-earth and swoon worthy BUT the main female role in this book is TOO MUCH! I don’t know if Quinn was purposely making Penny neurotic because she was pregnant or what but I almost didn’t get through this book because of this character. I love Eli and many of the other characters but I can’t handle dramatic ones like Penny who hide in closets when they are upset and habitually lie when they get caught in awkward situations. Her behavior in many parts made me cringe and not in an “that was embarrassing but funny/cute” way. I hope for those first time readers of Quinn’s books, that they try almost any other title of hers because they are fantastic and the character development of Penny was not an accurate representation of Quinn’s work!

Romantic Comedy at its best

Let me start by saying that if you listen to a Meghan Quinn audiobook while out in public you better be ready to make a fool out of yourself with lots of laugh out (really) loud moments with a few snorts and coughs. I swear people will look at you like you just escaped from a looney bin. Meghan's books are my favorite to listen to anytime of day. I especially love listening to them while I'm getting ready for work in the mornings, or while I am out running errands, or simply browsing the stores. They truly just bring me such joy and laughter. Those Three Little Words was no different. It was filled with so many hilarious moments, but it was also so heartwarming and tender.

Narrated by Kelsey Navarro (who is becoming one of my favorites) and Teddy Hamilton (love him), Those Three Little Words , which can be read as a standalone is the second book in The Vancouver Agitators Series. I have not read the first book, Kiss & Don't Tell (Pacey and Winnie's story) so the characters were all new to me. [Side Note: I will be starting Kiss & Don't Tell today]. Not only did I love the main characters Penny and Eli, but I also loved Taters, Holmes, Blakely, Winnie (and even Pacey). The relationships, friendships, meddling made this book even more fantastic. This book was full of so many of my favorite tropes:

Sports Romance
Surprise Pregnancy
Workplace Romance
Brother's Best Friend/Teammate
Best Friend/Teammate's Sister
Forced Proximity
One Night Stand

Penny Lawes handles the social media for the Vancouver Agitators. She is funny, quirky, and full of sass. Oh - she is also OFF LIMITS to any of her brother, Pacey's teammates, but Eli Hornsby has had a little thing for Penny since he first saw her two years ago, but out of respect to his best friend and teammate Pacey he has never made a move on her. When a "chance" encounter at a bar on Valentine's Day (and Eli's birthday) brings these two together they decide to indulge in some consenting adult play time for one night only. I mean, nobody else needs to know, right?

These two were in for a ride. I really loved Eli. He had a playboy reputation that followed him, but he was one of the most honest guys. My heart ached for Eli. The man had serious abandonment issues, but he was working through them. [Another Side Note: I was not a fan of whoever Eli's therapist was]. Tators was better at giving him advice. I do love how committed Eli was to the entire situation with Penny, but at the same time I can see how this was confusing to Penny, who was already going through a lot of hormonal and emotional changes. Penny - Penny - Penny - she did a complete 180 from that first night with Eli. I love how real her mood swings were throughout her pregnancy. The pranks, the cravings, the emotions, the irrational tactics were so accurate. I loved that we got to experience it all with her. Poor Eli just went along with it all even if the man was confused and irritated. These two were a perfect match. They were both extremely patient with trying to understand one another. I really love that we got to experience their relationship growth (their fears, their emotions, their love).

- Some of my favorite parts:
**Penny breaking the news to Eli and Pacey.**
**The unexpected visit from Penny's parents.**
**Eli's first appointment with Penny.**
**Penny going out for donuts at 2 a.m.**
and so much more.

I'm going to listen to Pacey and Winnie's story and then jump right into a re-listen of this one right after

Omg lol and swoon at the same time.

Omg lol and swoon at the same time. This story was amazing. Eli and Penny are perfect for each other. And those three little words, they where perfect that first time for Hornsby. Everything was perfect. Can’t wait for the rest of the team. Excellent performance of the narrators. Duet narration is definitely my favorite.

Could have been better if…

This story could have been exponentially better if all the characters weren’t horrible people. The one good character who had legit issues that EVERYONE knew about had to do ALL the relationship work. He was the most broken, but self aware, and yet the brother-sister put him through the ringer. The female character is so incredibly selfish. Her sense of entitlement is enraging. She sets up situations then gets upset when they backfire on her, as though it’s the other person’s fault. She comes across as the typical “straw dogs” personality, and the brother is an @ss. Teddy Hamilton is the only reason I continued to listen. His voice could make reading the Constitution sound like erotica.

Tricky to rate, but overall a great listen!

This one was difficult because, overall, I really enjoyed it. The pacing was a bit weird at times, and Penny does kind of… lose it… at least four times. And we definitely see the worst sides of her as she struggles with the brain and body chemical madness that pregnancy can be, as well as feelings of (presumed) unrequited love. I forgave most of it, but it could be a bit cringey/toxic at times. Still it was fun, and Eli was dreamy!

I’m curious about the rest of the squad’s stories, and hope this narrative configuration continues. Really enjoyed the dual narration where Teddy did all the male voices and Kelsey the female voices.

Absolutely Hilarious

This has been such a fantastic listen, and has made me howl with laughter so many times!
A wonderful story of romance and many, many laugh out loud funny parts. There is also a hell of a lot of sex, which is part of what's happening in the story, but if very descriptive sex scenes aren't for you, you would definitely struggle to listen to this book!
I loved the dual narrating of it, with both narrators reading it together. Excellent work by both narrators. There has to have been lots of out takes during the narration. No way they got through it all without cracking up at times!!
This is the second book in this series about the Vancouver Agitators Hockey Team, and I really hope there will be more to follow!

Beautiful Story! Hilarious!

This is the second book in The Vancouver Agitators series, a Sports Romance. I loved it! Eli and Penny's story is beautifully written, sweet, and sexy. Penny is Pacey's sister (from Kiss and Don't Tell). She is feisty, talkative, and beautiful. I liked her determination. Eli is handsome, enigmatic, and caring. I loved to follow them in their journey to love. Some scenes are hilarious! The characters are great and interesting. Kelsey Navarro and Teddy Hamilton did an outstanding job with the narration. This is a great brother's best friend, accidental pregnancy, and sports romance. I enjoyed it. I highly recommend this series. Looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.

Sports Romantic Comedy Gold!

I was so happy to be back with The Vancouver Agitator boys in Meghan's hockey romance world. I loved Kiss and Don't Tell and have been dying to see who was up next. I have to say Eli and Penny's story did not disappoint at all.

I actually listened to this one via audiobook and I have to applaud Teddy Hamilton and Kelsey Navarro because they absolutely smashed it out of the park. The narration was done as duet narration and it was seamless. They were the perfect Penny and Eli performing perfectly and portraying all the angst, frustration, comedic moments and a whole other host of emotions needed to do this story justice. Just perfection in my ears basically!

Eli and Penny's story is a best friends, little sister, accidental pregnancy story. With Eli trying to step up to the plate to do what is right by Penny after their one night stand; he moves in with her. This of course brings so many opportunities for Meghan's romantic comedy gold. As I was listening away whilst at work (I am a postal worker) I am literally laughing out loud at the scenes playing in my ear, like tears in my eyes laughter. The fact the Eli and Penny are having to get to know one another whilst Penny's pregnancy hormones are going wild is just pure hilarity.

Of course there is more to their story outside of the comedic aspects, Eli has a few backstory things that really stop him from allowing himself to truly love and be loved. Watching him overcome this as the story progresses was so endearing. I also loved how he does everything he can to do the right thing by Penny and be the man she needs him to be. Penny is a quirky lovable heroine and the perfect other half to Eli. As the book unfolds you get a few different stages to their relationship & pregnancy and it was clear to the reader how they as a couple and as individuals were evolving throughout.

So yes, another amazing sports romance from Meghan Quinn that I would happily recommend to people far and wide. With the little tasters that were dotted throughout about the other boys on the team, especially Holmes, I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

A beautifully sweet and funny sports romance

Meghan Quinn writes the most spectacular sports romance, and The Three Little Words is no exception.
This hilariously sweet and flirty romance filled with lots of witty banter, laugh out loud moments plus some emotional times that will tug at your heart strings had me captivated from start to finish and make this one of my favourite books to date this year.
Eli Hornsby is the self-confessed playboy of Vancouver Agitators hockey team and when his teammate Pacey Lawes’ sister joined the team as social media content creator, Pacey made it clear Penny is off limits especially to Casanova Eli. Fast forward 2 years and Eli and Penny give in to lust and temptation and have one hot, sexy, steamy night then bam, five weeks later Penny finds out she’s pregnant. Chaos ensues from this moment on. We have a protective older brother, the most hilariously awkward text conversations (farts and apples), all the stages of pregnancy which gives us all the hot/spicy times (um hello, five freaking times a day!), pranks, Dr Big Pecs and the most perfect HEA that will melt even the iciest of hearts.
Kelsey Navarro and Teddy Hamilton are a narration dream team and bring Penny and Eli to life in the most perfect way. Kelsey was truly outstanding, her ability to show us listeners all aspects of pregnancy was incredible and her comedic timing…simply perfect. Teddy’s performance was phenomenal! He took Eli from a playboy to a man completely out of his depth in a forced proximity situation to frantic baby daddy and finally perfect partner. Easily my favourite performances by Kelsey and Teddy to date.
I could not have loved this anymore! I laughed and cried, swooned, and blushed, laughed some more, huffed in frustration then Meghan hit me with the baby’s name and I flaming well cried again!
Love love love this marvellous book!

Love those three little words

Book 2 in the series. Both characters you saw in book 1. Eli ( the hero ) is a hockey player playing for the Vancouver team. He loves women yep he’s a playboy .
Penny is the sister of one of Eli playmates . One night together changes everything especially with a little one on the way . How does Penny brother take it with both of them.

Kelsey Navarro and Teddy Hamilton performance was spot on. They brought the story to life . You were able to tell who was who by their tone

Hilarious, emotional and romantic

Oh my word! This story, I loved it. Eli Hornsby he’s so troubled and messed up, yet still a perfect baby daddy for Penny Laws. He mans up to his responsibilities after getting her pregnant during a one and done night. For the record, they both agree it’s the best they’ve ever had. What happens after the main event is the basis for this story, and what a story. Penny and her word vomit are adorable. Eli and his inability to break the bro code, no matter how far Penny pushes him. Their inner thoughts about each other and their situation. All so so funny, I was legit laughing to myself. All that said, what a beautiful, perfectly matched couple they are. I was rooting for them throughout. Their banter and sexual chemistry is totally palpable, their honestly and openness refreshing. A fun, highly emotional and extremely sexy sports romance, and if you get the audio version, you get over 14 hours of listening pleasure with Teddy Hamilton and Kelsey Nevarro narrating Eli and Penny (plus additional characters), in duet narration, expressing every emotion for each character to utter perfection. I’ve got to be honest, 14 hours and 19 minutes, and I couldn’t get enough of them - it was not long enough. I was in audio heaven.

Great Listen!

Another great listen by Meghan Quinn. This book has many tropes. Workplace romance, brother’s best friend & accidental pregnancy. Penny & Eli had a whirlwind of a relationship and it got crazier as Penny’s pregnancy progressed. Lots of crazy hot steamy scenes 🥵 Excellent duet narration by Teddy Hamilton & Kelsey Navarro.

Brilliant narration

Never knew how much more engaging a story could be when the dialogue is always spoken by the relevant character's voice actor, no matter whose perspective the chapter was from. So much easier to follow conversations. I hope this becomes the norm for books with multiple perspectives and narrators.
