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 heknows that despite their differences, they’re a match well made.

*A standalone romantic comedy inspired by Jane Austen’s Emma*


  • Exactly What I Needed to Read

    By Cmcardona
    I’ve very rarely left reviews for things I’ve enjoyed, let alone for books, but this story did something to my feelings. Cam & Tyler’s relationship was so pure & good natured that it made me want to see them through to the end. I loved their storyline & every character that helped bring them together. As I was reading it, I imagined who would play Cam & Tyler in a movie. I absolutely adore Olivia Cooke & instantly thought of her while reading Cam’s part. For Tyler, I immediately thought of Matthew Noszka. This was the first book I’ve read from Staci Hart but seeing how much I loved this one, I can’t wait to see what else she has to offer. If you’re thinking of getting this book, DO IT!

  • Truly “Wasted Words”

    By Denishasb
    I wish I could take back the time I spent reading this book. Truly a waste.
  • Wasted, Not!!

    By Aedriftboy
    Loved the smart mouthed main character, her friends and everyone’s dream boat Tyler. Our formative years in h.s. can really traumatize us and this story points it out and how those teenage silly years affect our future. Definitely recommend, fun read and several HEAs.
  • Decent Read

    The ending was predictable. I didn’t enjoy reading another book where the female main character is insecure. Though you do learn the reason why in the book, wish she could have communicated her feelings better.
  • Love it

    By Ncsballer
    I loved everything about this book even though a couple parts were a little cheesy. Read it in one sitting and would read again in a heartbeat!
  • oh. my. DAYS.

    Honestly, I’ve been in a rut trying to find a book that makes you want to just sit and binge for hours. THIS BOOK IS IT! It has everything a feel good book needs. Love, heartbreak, friendship, sex, etc. Tyler and Cam’s story makes me want to reread over and over until my brain hurts. This is Rom-Com movie material y’all. Like the type of book that makes you wish there were three more books continuing their story. Take the time, enjoy their love story. I mean it. Seriously. READ THE DANG BOOK! side note: will be buying more of her books, I’m officially a Staci Hart stan.
  • Love!

    Good read. Cute story Enjoyed the romance. Made me think about how high school trauma continues to effect many people’s lives.
  • Lack luster at best.

    By Jackiess22
    I really wanted to like this book but ultimately I couldn’t really get into it. The main character was such a terrible person and the male lead was absolutely one dimensional. Really all the characters except maybe one fell flat. Even the novella thy follows just illustrated how the leads didn’t change at all.
