Wasted Words by Staci Hart
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*

LOVE This story!!!
Tyler is a retired/injured Football player - sure, getting hurt and losing the game sucked, but Tyler is a decent guy - he's not made to be a player and break hearts <3
When Tyler got hurt, his girlfriend dumped him - that sucked - he needed a place to stay, and that's how he became roommates with Cam -
Cam is awesome! Sweet, spunky and geeky :) She has a sensitivity that helps her read people and can pick which 2 people would be the perfect couple - and she is NEVER wrong... ok almost never - but she's good at it, and loves to see people happy.
She's fun and quirky and cute and everyone loves her. but she doesn't see it. She can't read herself well enough to find her o
wn special someone.
She knows she's attracted to Tyler. Seeing him step out of the shower every morning in nothing but a towel. She's only human after all - but she knows deep down that he's better than her. He wants someone just as beautiful as he is.
Tyler is a sweetheart - caring and fun to be around. He and Cam have a lot of fun hanging out, going out or just doing nothing but watching games on a Saturday afternoon.
But he knows she doesn't feel for him the way he feels about her, and that's the hard part. But he'd rather have her friendship than nothing at all...
This book is fun to read - I laughed and wanted to cry and hit something all at the same time :)
