Publisher's Summary

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.

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.
