Synopsis (Goodreads):
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*
Thoughts on Wasted Words: Man this book was tough on me. Mostly because I could see where Cam was coming from with her anxiety and her desire to be in control. And, BOY, did I want her to find her happily ever after with Tyler. I WANTED IT BAD! Every time she'd start to slip into her head and have all those doubts, I tensed up.

Basically, not only was this an outstanding read, I worked my abs with all the tensing. Well played, Hart. Well played.

So. Cam has a few issues. Don't we all? Tyler... I really liked the guy. He was understanding without being a pushover. He was a big, sexy beast who took a terrible situation and turned it into something good. He fit Cam. For all Cam fought against it (something I totally got given what she'd experienced in the past), Tyler had the patience to convince her their differences weren't so different after all.

Also, I love big, sexy beasts who don't mind waiting until the right time to rock their lady's world!

I loved seeing some familiar faces. I loved the bar/coffee shop/book store/comic book store. I just...*grabs everyone and holds them close* More please.
