Release Blitz: 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*

I've read every book written by Staci Hart and I think its fair to say that I will devour anything this woman writes, because she has such a way with words and spinning a tale. 

Staci Hart takes a story, a classic, something you've read or heard of or (sometimes) seen the movie, and turns it into a modern re-telling that is both amazing and unique.  This book has the humor Hart is known for, in addition the the swoons and the characters that grab you and pull you into the pages.  

Wasted Words is quite simply a phenomenal read.  Cam and Tyler are fresh and fun characters who immediately draw your attention. I love how different they are, but how well the fit together, fullfilling that notion that opposites do indeed attract. And they can combust too!  I enjoyed watching as they either fought their attraction or tried to further it.  

With every word written throughout this book, we are pulled deeper and deeper in, but also had emotions pulled out of us. From laughter, to smiles, to swoons, to Oh My Goodness will you please cut this tension, and more.  The friendship between Cam and Tyler, their insecurities, their wants and wishes and that moment when it all falls into line, that lightbulb moment of 'How did I miss this?', each little scene just builds and builds and leaves you craving more.  

Hart has given us a story, an opposites attract, friends to lovers, classic tale remake, but more than that, she's built up this intricate story, this jumble of words that is so perfect, and so fitting that you can't put it down.  Even hours after finishing the last line, you'll be ready to dive back in for more.  

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.
