Wasted Words by Staci Hart | Audiobook Review

Theme: Romance

Is there sex? Yep

Rating: 2.5/5 | Verdict: Meh.

Notes:
I thought the plot meant that it would be a sure-fire hit for me... who doesn't like stories where the nerdy little bookworm ends up with the super hot sports agent? Unfortunately though, as intriguing as the beginning introductions were, their romantic revelation and interaction wasn't as thrilling as it could be. 

Audiobook Voices: Quite good. There's a guy and girl narrator.

Book Plot:
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.

Semi-spoilery afterthoughts (Tell me if you felt the same way!)

There was almost no tension-- their love for each other was simply automatic. Then it all went downhill when they became all needy and cheesy for each other. It was very hard not to cringe. Their climactic "problem" wasn't even a real problem. I almost didn't finish the audiobook because it was just all a little too corny for me.
