Read:: Wasted Words by Staci Hart

First, lets get this out of the day, while reading this wonderful book, I was only seeing Jamie Walker as Tyler. So right now click on his name to visit his facebook page and look at him, stalk him, and Like his page. I know he looks nothing like the guy on the cover but this is who I saw!

Tyler and Cam are roommates. Roommates that eventually figure out they are jonesing for each other. Cam, though, is really insecure, which I hated. I hate seeing women think they aren't good enough just because they are too short, too fat, too tall, have classes, read too much, don't read enough, not good at math, hair not styled, no makeup, the list goes on. It's horrible to listen to women who are not comfortable in their own skin and then think they aren't good enough for man in their life. 

So Tyler wants Cam, there are a few issues but it all works out. She finally gets it. We get to visit with the other characters from this series, although they are in the background most of the time giving full attention to Tyler and Cam. I love Staci Hart, I am so thankful that the first book in this series caught my attention, its got a HOT cover, and I one clicked. Most of the time I feel like I am sitting on the bar stool beside them watching all of this happen in front of me. 

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*
