Title: Wasted Words
Author: Staci Hart
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 19, 2016


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*

Wasted Words is one of those books that eat up your heart and soul in one sitting.  It was intoxicating, addictive, and absolutely a book that you must one click immediately.  Hart has a way with writing her story so that is comes alive in the hands of the reader, demanding your full attention to the very end.  Wasted Words did exactly that to me as I read Hart’s twist on a classic trope.  As I read, my heart soared watching Cam and Tyler teeter that imaginary line between friends and lovers.  Cam, a self professed  book nerd at heart and Tyler, a hunky cute football player, couldn’t be more different.  But Hart, used her magic in creating two kindred spirits that couldn’t have been more perfect for each other than if Cam herself matched them up.  Sure, at times this book could be a little cheesy, but isn’t that what we all sign up for when reading a funny rom-com such as Wasted Words?  

All cheesiness aside, Hart’s story was phenomenal. I laughed, I cried, I sat on the edge of my seat as I read this story. The characters were so complex, well thought out and interesting.  Hart managed to add a refreshing spin on an already amazing story updating it to today’s standards without ruining this classic tale, only enhancing it!  
This was my first book by Staci Hart and I can tell you easily it won’t be the last.  Wasted Words was exceptional!  I fell in love with Hart’s storytelling and can’t wait to catch up and see what she has in store for readers next!  

Author Bio

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.
