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.

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!!

"Possibly the Coolest Bar/Coffee & Book Shop Ever!"
My favorite type of narration!! I love when the woman reads all the women voices and the man reads all the male voices regardless of POV.
The main character, Cam Emerson, seems like a busy body. She enjoys setting people up, reads a lot, knows several languages and is probably someone that would get on my nerves if I knew her because she's a little too perky. But in the story, she grows on me and is a little endearing. She works at a bar called Wasted Words, it seems to be a cross between a bar and a book store.
Her best friend/roommate is a former football player who is a 6'6" beautiful specimen. Tyler Knight ends up subletting a room with Cam after a break up with his model girl friend. Tyler and Cam are great friends and Tyler spends a lot of time at Wasted Words with Cam and her co-workers/friends.
There is chemistry between them but Cam has made it clear they are in the friend zone only. Her reasons for this unfold as the story progresses but Tyler doesn’t understand. The story is slow to get to the point but I enjoyed the process and it ends in a HEA.

"My woulds would be wasted"
no description can do the story Justice. This is probably, hands down, my favorite 20-something love story. It had just the right mix of stereotyping and breaking the mold. the only negative thing I can possibly say about this story, is the fact that the girl narrator reading could not pronounce Inuyasha, Dalek, and I think one other nerd reference. But the fact that this book even references those things that all makes up for it LOL
"Feel good book"
While this book was utterly predictable, the narration was good and it kept me interested. I did feel a little bit like Tyler was too perfect and that felt unrealistic to me, but I listened to it quickly and enjoyed it. If you're in the mood for a feel good romance post-college aged then this is for you! Just don't expect any crazy twists.
"Fantastic duet narration!"
Wasted Words starts off light and fun with a somewhat quirky heroine. Her and her roommate Tyler have been dancing around each other for a while but they are strictly in the "friend" zone. Cam has issues that prevent her from acknowledging that there could be more with him and instead spends most of her time meddling in others lives. I found it hard to like or feel for Cam because she came off as judgmental and childish at times. Tyler on the other hand was sweet and perfect. I really wanted him to get his HEA, and he was the reason I wanted to finish the story.
The narration was fantastic! This was my first time listening to these narrators do this style of narration (male speaks for male and female speaks for female) and they nailed it.
*This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
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.

"Nerdy girl gets hot guy, yaaaaay!!!"
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 was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator."
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.
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.
