Wasted Words Ebook Cover

Some universal truths refuse to be ignored.

Peanut butter and jelly are a match made in heaven. Spaghetti and meatballs are best friends forever. And guys like Tyler Knight don’t go for girls like Cam Emerson.

She knew from the second she met him that he didn’t belong on her bookshelf, the six-foot-six ex-tight end with a face so all-American, it could have sold apple pie. So she shelved him next to the supermodels and rock stars and took her place on her own shelf — the one with the flannel-clad, pasty-faced comic book nerds. Most of her boyfriends have existed between the pages of books, but rather than worrying over her own lacking love life, she puts all her energy into playing Cupid, using her job at the book bar, Wasted Words, as her stomping ground.

Tyler Knight always looks on the bright side. His career-ending injury turned into a job as a sports agent. A horrible breakup led him to Cam, his quirky, smart roommate who is far more beautiful than she realizes. She’s made it perfectly clear she’s not interested in him — not like that at least — but if she ever changes her mind, he won’t hesitate. Because he doesn’t see the lines she’s drawn between them, as much as she insists that they’re there. Deep down he knows that despite their differences, they’re a match well made.

*A romantic comedy inspired by Jane Austen’s Emma*

This story! Oh my GOD! I love this book! I really, really do! It is so amazing! I just don’t have the words to describe how amazing it is! I am in love with this story and that is all there is to it, really.

It is a friends to something more romance and I love those! It’s just so heartwarming to see two friends who are so comfortable with each other realize that their feelings run deeper and then explore the same. I love the feel of it. The awkwardness, the shy adorableness that is prevalent in such situations, all of it! So, yeah, I love this story because this provides exactly that to the readers.

Cam and Tyler are such amazing friends and seeing their relationship morph into more is amazing. They already know each other so well – their likes and dislikes and wants and needs. So, it is really great how they just dive into a relationship once they realize how they feel about each other. Of course, they do dance around a little, afraid that it might ruin their friendship, but then they persevere through. Thankfully!

Of the two of them, it is definitely Cam who needs the reassuring that all is going to be fine. And Tyler does such an amazing job of it. He is there with her, every step of the way, holding her, guiding her and making her believe that what they have is real and that is what he wants. He’s just so, so, so very amazing, I don’t have the words to say. I adore him, plain and simple. He makes me laugh and he makes me smile and he makes me fall in love with him. He is cute and adorable and loving and caring and also sexy and beautiful. Who wouldn’t fall for him? He’s just really amazing.

Cam, on the other hand, I identified a lot with her. She’s a bookworm, always reading something or the other, her nose buried in a book, not unlike me. She’s sort of shy and reserved when it comes to her own love life but loves playing matchmaker to others. She’s witty and feisty which I absolutely love. She’s not afraid to stand up for herself, but she also doubts herself in the capacity that she doesn’t believe that Tyler can stay with her for a long time. Her fears come from a deep seated place inside of her and until you know her story, you may think that she’s being unnecessarily pushy about the whole thing and unreasonably insecure when it comes to Tyler. The struggles that she faces may seem unimportant but they’re truthful. Many people face the circumstances as her and that’s what makes this relatable.

Do I wish she hadn’t been so hasty in making some decisions? Yes.

But after reading the story do I understand why she did it? Completely.

All in all, this is one amazing, kickass read that is a must for all romance lovers out there! Staci Hart is absolutely brilliant at what she does and if you’ve not read her books, you’re seriously missing out. Like, seriously!

Go read this, now! And fall in love with Tyler. Deeply and irrevocably. ❤

StaciHart

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life: a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, even though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.

From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s sleeping, cleaning, or designing graphics.
