~*♥Release Blitz with 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*

Rating: ★★★★
Reviewer: Melyssa

vThere are some books that from the moment you start them, you just know based on the flow of the words, the voice of the characters involved and the situations they find themselves in, you’re just going to straight up love.

That is my experience with Wasted Words. 

I have to go on record saying, while I do own many a book by this author, I have yet to actually sit down and read one of them. I suck, I know. But when you look at it like this, I think this was the best book for me to start with, because walking away now that it’s over, I have a new appreciation for humor in romance. A new appreciation for the author and her ability to spin one heck of a story and something sweet (in her other stories) to look forward to. 

I love a good opposites attract story. I also like authors that take chances and that is what Staci Hart did here, putting her own unique spin on a classic in Emma. While, with that kind of thing, it can be scary because living up to a classic is incredibly daunting, here it just worked. 

Tyler and Cam couldn’t have been more perfect for each other. Cam with her quirkiness you can’t help but love, and Tyler, sweet, (swoony sweet even), determined and headstrong, they just played off each other phenomenally. Add in the friendship they had going in and there are no two characters I was rooting for more than these two. 

My only complaint here being, I wanted more. I still want more. I think when it comes to these two, I always will. Hands down one of the best reads of 2016 for me so far and a story, a journey really, that I am so glad I took a chance on. 

If you’re a fan of the author, rom-coms, friends that turn into something more or even just a fan of romance in general, I think you’ll enjoy it. I know I did. 

I look forward to seeing where this author takes us next. 

My thanks to the author and all others involved in letting me read this book before it’s official release. Wasted Words and the journey of Cam and Tyler one I won’t soon forget.

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.
