Cam may annoy some with her constant back and forth and anxiety. But to me, she's flawed in a beautiful way. I get her. She's a piece of me. The piece that I've always been afraid to make known. The piece that, at times, can cripple me and hold me captive. So I get her and I applaud her for taking the leap and falling into a love that can conquer her fears. And besides her fears and anxieties, her beauty is flawless. Her wit and quirkiness make her an individual, they make her shine her own light.
Tyler Knight. The perfect knight in shining sexiness. Gosh this man. I can't even put into words the perfection that is Tyler. So sweet. So caring. He just wants to love Cam and love her good, just like she deserves. If only he can make her see that they belong on the same shelf.
I can't speak highly enough about this book. I devoured it in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. Staci's words held me captive. They made me feel and love and she creates a world that I could get lost in. She's a true talent. A true individual. A true shining light. And her heart is felt on every page, in every word.
This was cute younger adult read about finding love where you don’t expect it - and having to take chances.
Cam is a mid 20 something bartender/bookstore manager in New York. She’s taken chances in her scholastic and professional careers, but has had her love life in what she consider the safe zone since a traumatic high school experience.
Tyler is her roommate and best friend. He finally takes the bull by the horn and drives their relationship from friends to lovers.
I liked Cam and Tyler and it was awesome to see their friendship blossom into a real relationship, but I have to admit to siding with Tyler when it came to dealing with Cam’s insecurities- especially when she wouldn’t tell him about the root cause.
This is a fairly typical YA story with some yo yo behavior back and forth and angst where it’s not really needed, but overall a fun read.
Wasted Words was my first Staci Hart book, I found her through another Blog that I follow, Glass Paper Ink, run by Kristine who’s reviews and opinions I trust and value because she always recommends fantastic books and authors. Kristine raved about Staci Hart and her Bad Habits series and I started looking up Staci and came across Wasted Words as an up and coming release. I read the blurb and was instantly intrigued with the plot as this is one of my favourite troupes!
Wasted Words was SO GOOD. The dynamic between the hero and heroine was perfect. They meshed so well, There conversations were hilarious and full of one liners that had me laughing out loud!
“I lived a thousand lives to escape from the real life, because real life is boring and s***ty. There’s no adventure, not like we get with Tolkien or Lewis. Its fun to escape into a book, and I want you to experience it"
This quote was perfect. I adored Cam, and found that I could really relate to her as a character. I understood her fears and felt them along side her. I experienced a very similar situation with my own Tyler and believe that Staci captured her thoughts and feelings so perfectly. I loved her ‘ability’ and I loved where she worked. I loved that she was a nerd and totally comfortable in her own skin. I think that is what made her such a likeable character. She wasn’t whiney or shy, just honest and hilarious.
“It doesn’t make any sense that you’d want me.” He stroked my cheek. His dark eyes soft. “Maybe not in your universe, but it makes perfect sense in mine"
Tyler was equal parts sweet and hilarious. I couldn’t get over the interaction's between him and Cam. They were just such a perfect fit from the start! They gelled and were so funny together. I loved that he was so certain of every action and every choice he had made and how he always put Cam first. He wasn’t the typical jock that you thought he would be.
Oh and can we talk about the setting for this book! Wasted Words was a Book Bar… Yes! A Book Bar! Every bookworms dream! A bar where you can go and read books and drink alcohol or coffee or whatever you heart desires and meet like minded people! The setting that Staci created, the background characters, the events that Cam ran at Wasted Words were all just perfect. I hope that one day someone creates a real life Wasted Words so i can go there every day! And fingers crossed that Greg will be there!
The secondary characters in this story also added any extra bit of drama and hilarity! They all had some fantastic quotes like Tyler’s sister Meg!
“Lit Major. One day when i’m a famous write, you can talk all about how my metaphors brought none of the boys to the yard” - Meg
I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone looking for a light hearted, hilarious and fun read. Staci Hart has an incredible way with words, I’m a notorious highlighter and I’m sure I highlighted half of this fantastic book. There were so many fantastic quotes and passages that I couldn’t resist.
“But she was right about finding a book that spoke to me. It was a strange magic, to be entranced by words, and I’d found myself devouring the novel, dog-earing pages that held passages that meant something to me, just as she had. I’d found that many she’d highlighted spoke to me too, and it almost felt like I was reading it with her.”
This quote was one of my favourites, it perfectly captures how I’m sure everyone who loves to read feels about sharing books with friends.
