Wendy's Review of Wasted Words by Staci Hart ~ RELEASE BLITZ ~

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*

3.5 stars 

When I saw the blurb for Wasted Words, I wanted to read it. It seemed to be something I would enjoy. This story is based off of Emma by Jane Austen (which I did like somewhat). 

Cam and Tyler are what you would call opposites. While Cam is the bookish nerd, Tyler would be the popular, hot boy. I love the friendship that these two have. They had great banter and their hangouts were just pure fun. There is some underlying feelings that they have for each other and it was wonderful to read as they try to turn their friendship into something more. Cam was so great. I could definitely see myself in her. I was on her side throughout the story. Tyler was so amazing. He was sweet and considerate. I loved how he saw Cam. To him, she was perfect. He made me swoon. I enjoyed seeing how everything progressed with the two of them. I also loved seeing the references to popular culture. It made me giddy. 

Wasted Words was a good read. There were great characters and storyline. I was very interested until the end. Fans of friends-to-lovers romances should definitely pick this book up.

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.
