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.

I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
The story was sweet and well written...and the narration was great!
The Surprise near the end!
**SEE ABOVE** LOL
This would probably make a great movie!!
** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
Cam is super Adorable..a nerdy bookworm cutie!! She is smart and kind...and has a hot roommate! Tyler is that good hearted hot guy...fun to be with a gentleman...and so hot you cant help but want him! They have been roomies a long time...Cam likes to fix people up, but she never sets herself up...she has trust issues..lol Big Issues... Tyler and Cam cant help it...they have chemistry and it finally brings them together....Cam is so scared she almost ruins this...but they figure things out and get a really nice HEA....
There is some very sexy scenes in this book...and it was a really fun listen!!
I RECOMMEND!!!! :)
I have to wait long periods of time to find a book that is narrated in this manner. I was so overjoyed when I found it. Jason and Kristen did a remarkable job in their narration. I would love to listen to more books read by them in this manner. The story itself was slow and I really did not care for it much but the narration made it worth listening to. Wish there were more books read in this manner. I miss listening to books. I just do not like hearing females trying to sound like men and men trying to sound like women. Well worth a listen.
Yes.The story was good (adaptation of Emma so no surprises there). Staci Hart wrote a fun book with fun characters. She built characters in Cam and Tyler. I love it when authors write different H/H and Cam and Tyler aren't the typical NA heroes.
Edit out unnecessary scenes with minor characters. The whole scene at the game with the twins was wasted words. It didn't contribute to the story, growth of the relationship etc..
I loved their performance best.They brought Cam and Tyler to life.I loved the relationship between Cam and Tyler. The banter, simmering sexual tension, the friendship between them. It all came to life with a wondweful narration by Jason and Kirsten.
The moments Cam and Tyler communicated openly about their feelings. The fear of starting a relationship that will damage the friendship between them was moving.

First let me say that I enjoyed this book. It was sweet, funny, and romantic. I like that it paired a nerdy girl with the hot guy! I wish that there really was a place called Waisted Words, if there was I would go there ALL the time! Narration was totally on point, however, the main reason I listened to it was to hear Jason Clarke, and he didn't narrate nearly as much as I would have liked :)
The only thing I really didn't like was Cam's self esteem. I get that she was damaged, but I felt it took it a little too far. It went from ok I can relate to that, to now she's just being an idiot. Other than my occasional irritations with Cam I thoroughly enjoyed it. Totally loved the part with the twins, that was hilarious.
A woman with such low self esteem that she thinks the beautiful people belong together and the ordinary ones likewise. Cam is a whiny, judgmental bitch. I was unable to find any sympathy for her. Tyler is such a great guy that I felt sorry for him. The romance felt doomed. I felt like too much drama and no trust. If that was what the author was trying to achieve then she was spot on.
The narration was so so.The characters were not people I wanted to know. Jason Clarke didn't seem invested until 3/4 of the way through. Kirsten Leigh did the whiny bitch well.

I really enjoyed this book. I've read all the books in this series and love them! Highly recommend! But what I loved most was the narration. Both narrators did a great job! I like books with alternating pov's and I like dual narration. This book took that a step further and had the girl narrate every time a girl character spoke even during the boys pov, and the same for him. It felt like listening to a real conversation instead of hearing a girl try to sound like a guy or a guy try to sound like a girl. I wish more audiobooks were narrated this way!
I loved how Cam was a nerd and into comic books.
This book is like none other.
I have not listened to Jason or Kirsten before but they did a great job. I loved that this book was duel narrated.
I didn't mind not listening to this one in more then one sitting. I liked the characters but knew they would still be there when real life let me get back to them.
Read/Listen, Review and Recommend!
This was a first for me by this author… I KNOW right…Thank god I rectified that!!!
Why did I wait so long to pick up a Staci Hart book it was FABULOUS. I mean it, it was the right kind of sweet and romance that I just LOVE.
Hopeless romantic over here remember. I can’t say enough good things about the story the characters were so relatable.
Cam Emerson is the matchmaker of the group she can see two people and have a feeling they will be good for each other.
But she had kind of take herself out of the equation you see she has been hurt before and felt like he was out of her league so now she had a rule that she can only date with in her league or what she thinks is her league.
Tyler Knight is Cam’s best friend and roommate. He’s having a time with what he used to be and who he is not that he doesn't accept it just that it’s hard to be around what he loved. And one of the things or people I should say he has feeling for doesn't show the same in return or does she?
I really enjoyed watching these two dance, because that’s what it felt like give and take. And a little bit miscommunication along the way. Growing pains is another way of thinking about it.
The narration was wonderful I really enjoyed Kirsten Leigh’s performance. She brought Cam to life for me. Jason Clarke was good, sometimes I felt like he was just speaking the words. Hmm does that make sense? He has a wonderful voice don’t’ get me wrong. I would and will defiantly seek out audiobooks from both narrators.

Cam for 90+ % of this book whines and with 2 hrs to & multiple breaks I'm ready to tear my ears out! I can't finish it!
The book is called Wasted Words & they mean it!
Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.
Ok, I love me some Staci Hart and this book was no different. Lots of sweet and sexy and medium angst.
This wasn't my favorite tho because Cam (the heroine) was super whiny and it was kind of much ado about nothing.
That being said, I totally listened to the whole thing and Tyler was freakin hot and adorable and confident and so incredibly sweet to Cam that I would listen over and over just to get more Tyler.
Jason Clarke and Kirsten Leigh are fantastic narrators. Love them. However I loathe duet narration or conversational narration or whatever it is called. BUT if you are going to listen to one, this is a great one to listen to. They do a great job with it. I just wish it didn't exist. 😉
