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*

There isn't many times when I find my connecting so well to the female lead. This is one of those times. Cam is a book nerd and proud of it. She helps run a bookstore/bar. She also never believed someone as gorgeous as Tyler would be interested in her. Tyler, was a superstar football player until an injury took him out and now he's an sports agent. He and Cam are roommates but never had thought about hooking up. With persuasion and help from their friends, they decide to give it a go. Cam lives in her head and lets to many people get in there. She basically lets a bad experience and Tyler's friend(who's a major douche by the way) get into her head. Tyler and Cam are so cute together, she even gets him to read her favorite book and love it! This book had so many laugh out loud moments along with moments you either want to smack the main characters or their friends. I loved this story so so much!! One I could read over and over again!
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.
