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*
This is a story of a girl who doesn’t believe she deserves greatness because it may be out of her league (according to her). Cam is this most awesome person, which in my opinion, would be a guys dream girl. She is funny, loves books/comics, can speak many different languages and likes to have a good time. Cam is a very relate-able woman because of her insecurities and just down to earth feel I got when I read about her. I felt for Cam throughout this book because I know I was her at some point in my life but I also was screaming at her because she just let her head control her for most of the book.
When you have a best friend like Tyler you try everything you can to avoid the emotions you know you have but are too scared to have. Tyler was hurt pretty badly, in many ways, in High School and it left its own scar on his heart. I had issues with Cam, but I had many issues with Tyler that made me want to throw things at him to open his eyes to something so obvious to me.
Cam and Tyler I felt were such awesome friends and I enjoyed reading about their story so much that I have to say this is by far my favorite read from Ms. Hart! This was a corky, funny, and sad at times but all around fantastic read!
Thank you for writing such a book I connected to on many levels Ms. Hart, 5 brilliant stars!!
