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*

Full disclosure: before I even started this book, I kept singing Extreme’s More Than Words when I thought of this book. Which after reading it, makes total sense even though I hadn’t listened to Extreme in FOREVER.
This book! ALL THE FEELS!!!
I haven’t read any Staci Hart novels before and what the heck was wrong with me? I FLOVED this book! I cannot say enough about it.
Cam and Tyler are an unlikely duo but they are the best of friends. They have such a close friendship and are even roommates. Tyler is the all-American, football-playing, heartthrob. Cam is the classic bookworm nerd. But somehow they just make sense as friends.
Cam makes it well-known to Tyler that they are just too different and from 2 different worlds to ever be a couple. But Tyler moves heaven and earth to prove to Cam that they are the real deal and this CAN work out with them.
This book was just amazingly good to me and I loved the story line. As a bookworm myself, the idea that the “captain of the football team, Mr Popularity” could fall for the bookworm is the stuff dreams are made of.
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.
