Synopsis: A satisfying category romance from Entangled’s brand new Lovestruck imprint…
Two radio show hosts. One show. Who will come out on top?
In a moment of restlessness, Tate Grayson sold his multimillion-dollar company and spun his love of sports into a radio talk show. Life, and love, is too short to take seriously—a fact he enjoys rubbing in uptight radio host Noelle Butler’s face.
After the death of her parents, a tragedy she blamed on herself, Noelle vowed to live a controlled, focused life. Now a psychologist, she channels her need for connection into her radio show. But when the arrogant sportscaster next door tells listeners men shouldn’t get married, she’s all too happy to yank the silver spoon out of his overprivileged mouth.
Their heated on-air arguments are a hit, but when the station director forces them to do a joint show for two weeks, Tate and Noelle object. They can’t stand each other, despite the attraction sizzling beneath every interaction. But if they can’t pull the struggling radio station back from the brink, they’ll lose their jobs. Or worse, their hearts.
My Book Review: Tate Grayson, a sports radio personality, doesn't believe in love. Not because he's cynical, but because he didn't grow up in the ideal environment with parents who showed each other love. 
Noelle Butler's dream is to one day find the love that her parents had. Until then she offers relationship advices to her callers.
When these two radio hosts who are the exact opposite of one another end up paired together for a show of their own, what will happen between them? 
Tell Me Something Good is a magnetic book that captures your attention and doesn't let it go. Once you start reading, you can't put this book down. 
The chemistry between Tate and Noelle is truly amazing and I loved it. What I loved more is their passion and the way that both of then always have to be right. These two challenge one another in ways I've only seen played out in a Gilmore Girls episode in a scene between Tristan and Rory (Yes, I did just reference Gilmore Girls in this review. What can I say, I've watched nothing but season 1 reruns since I've been sick). 
Tate is your typical man's man, sports guy and the exact opposite of Noelle who is a bit of a nerdy doctor who thinks she knows everything there is to know about relationships. You'd never think this pairing would work together, but in a surprising way it does and the reader sees that they are actually pretty perfect for one another. Tate allows Noelle to loosen up and be a bit carefree in her life which has always been scheduled to a tee. Noelle makes Tate recognize that his parents are his parents and although things may not have worked out for them and his childhood was a bit rough, they did love him. 
Tell Me Something Good makes me wish we could hear Tate and Noelle on air. I'm sure that would be a great show to start your day to! 
Tell Me Something Good is a five star winner!
