Release Day & Review ~ Wasted Words by Staci Hart

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*


Jill's Review

"There's something terribly satisfying about imagining two people falling in love and then witnessing it."


To be honest I've been in a horribly long book funk.  Like longer than I care to even admit.  Reading Wasted Words brought back my love for reading.  I honestly haven't been in love with a book in so long that read this was just that much more enjoyable.  

I'm a huge fan of Staci, so I knew I was going to like this book, but I so much more than liked it.  Wasted Words is my favorite of Staci's books!! I didn't want it to end.  

"Over the course of a few minutes, kissing Cam became one of my most favorite things in the world." 

Tyler and Cam have to be my favorite book couple ever.  Tyler was freaking perfect.  He was a former college football player.  Tall and freaking gorgeous, and the best part is he's just a sweetheart.  Like an all out nice freaking guy, which to me is super attractive when a guy especially in Tyler's caliber, isn't an A hole.  Tyler is just the perfect guy all around I'm still swooning. Cam was just the most adorable, like-able person ever.  Like I want to be friends with her so bad.  We'd totally be bestest friends ever.  Cam might be my favorite heroine ever.  She was just funny and so down to earth.  Cam wore her feelings on her sleeves and wasn't ashamed to say what she felt, exactly when she felt it.  I LOVED HER.  Tyler and Cam's story was just great from first page to last.  It was one of those stories you just didn't want to end.  

"She wasn't like the other girls I'd dated.  She was real and good and true, and she wanted me.  I felt more safe with her than any woman I'd ever been with."

I honestly can't get over how perfect this book was.  Staci did a perfect job on Tyler and Cam.  They were just amazingly perfect.  I'm actually really upset it's over.  I wanted more just because of how much I loved them.  Like I want their whole story until their like 99 years old.  

Do yourself a favor and read this amazing story.  Its funny, serious, sexy and just PERFECT!

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.
