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*
REVIEWS GIVE ME SO MUCH LIFE!
Cam and Tyler's story is like looking in a mirror and seeing your own truths. Beautiful, romantic, and as always, hilarious. Staci Hart must keep writing forever, because I'm always awaiting her next read. 5 stars! - Author Brittainy C Cherry
It's perfection. If Jane Austen were alive, she'd agree. - USA Today Bestselling Author Lex Martin - Author
Hart's storytelling is like sitting across from your best friend and watching her share some experience she's had. You know what I mean - she's waving her hands, her eyes wide, her body language pulling you in and has you begging - BEGGING! - for the next word. - Adriana Locke
Staci Hart is the queen of romantic comedy. Wasted Words will make you laugh, swoon, and fall in love with its uncommon freshness in a genre suffering from "same old same". With a little Jane Austen flair and a lot of heart, this book is easily one of my top reads of 2016. - Author Kandi Steiner
Lovers of Staci Hart (and Jane Austen, for that matter) will have a major swoon-fest over Cam and Tyler in Wasted Words. Their personalities absolutely leap off the page with realism, thanks to Hart's adept hand at characterization and dialogue, and you'll find yourself unable to put this book down once you start it. - Karla Sorensen
I've read one of the best books I'll ever read, one that I will pick up anytime and fall in love with every time. This bookworm has fallen deep for the fairy and her giant. - Bookalicious Babes Blog
There's a beautiful message in Wasted Words that reminds us to look outside of what we've conditioned ourselves to believe, Hart urges the reader to question the imaginary shelves we put ourselves on, to question the fences we build to keep people out, to prevent the chance of future hurt. - Glass Paper Ink Bookblog
Basically, not only was this an outstanding read, I worked my abs with all the tensing. - Reading the Paranormal

Warmth blossomed in my chest with every single turn of the page. I'm in awe with this author's brilliant writing and her ability to win me over after page one. -Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads
The writing. The references. The words. Everything about this book is perfect. You get the great with the bad, and the happy with the sad, and the understanding with the everything. The balance is perfection that you don’t get whiplash but understanding, even when you are so angry it hurts. -Words I Need Words
