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.
*A romantic comedy inspired by Jane Austen’s Emma*
While the cover was cute the heroine Cam frustrated me. Her matchmaking with Bayleigh didn’t go as what SHE planned and at that point I wanted to smack her multiple times. Her insecurities was pretty fucked up. I understood that she felt cheated in the past because she was treated like a one-night stand when she thought of more leading her to believe that she’s this and that. Her mindset that she’s this and that person was just ugh! grow up!
Tyler, however, was such a sweet, loving hero. But yeah this book is a failure for me. Actually heroine was the failure. If it weren’t for Tyler, I DNF this one.
“I want you, Cam. I want your body, your heart, your soul. I’ll give you mine in exchange. But you have to choose me, right here, right now. Do you trust me?”
“More than anyone,” she said, her voice heavy with decision and emotion.”
“So I did the only thing I could to show her how I felt — I kissed her.
I kissed her with all of me, heart and soul, told her with every motion, every touch, every breath that I wanted her. That she was perfect. That I was hers.”
This was an okay book but Cam! >.<
