Book Review: Tell Me Something Good by Jamie Wesley

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.


Tease. Hot. Steamy. This book is the perfect definition of enemies to lovers book. I never encountered a trope like this where I enjoyed a lot of arguments they had. It feels like I’m watching a drama or a reality show where two contestants are not aware of their own feelings. Tell Me Something Good is ridiculously good!

This book started with Tate Grayson listening to Dr. Noelle’s radio show and he was offended by a lot of relationship advice of Dr. Noelle – maybe not just the advice, probably, the perspective of Dr. Noelle on relationships in general. As we all know, radio shows accept a call from different local listeners, right? With coincidence, Tate also works as a host of a radio show on the same radio station where Dr. Noelle was. And Tate provokes Noelle and hanged up on Tate.

Two people collide with their personality and perspective in life, without knowing that a tension is building up to them. Not just a hate tension but an honest, love tension that the audience couldn’t deny from the two of them. When the director of the radio show see the ratings where the two call on each other’s own hosted radio show and provoke each other through the call, their ratings skyrocketed and wanted to put the two of them work with each other’s local radio timeline and be each other’s co-host.

The simple thought of combining two clashing perspectives gave an amusement to the listeners as well a fascinating and unexpected development from the two characters. They must have cooperation and teamwork where the key points and mainly the expertise of Tate related to sports while incorporating the relationship and love advice of Dr. Noelle for the good of the station.

Maintaining publicity and having a competitive mind, the two fell on a bet among the listeners – which became the way to discover each other’s personal lives. This became a development, a progress between two without knowing that they have feelings with each other but still denying the attraction. Understanding and trust builds up between Tate and Noelle and somehow a key point to find that they didn’t just hate each other, they fell in love.

Tell Me Something Good by Jamie Wesley is a fast-paced, satisfying romance read that I would like to go back to and read more. I am intrigued by a lot of their arguments and I wish there are more in this book.

MY RATINGS: 4.5 STARS.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR


me.jpgJamie Wesley has been reading romance novels since she was about 12 when her mother left a romance novel, which a friend had given her, on the nightstand. Jamie read it instead, and the rest is history.

She started her first manuscript, a contemporary romance, after she graduated from Northwestern University in 2002 and couldn’t find a job. Life got in the way as it often does, i.e. she found a job, and she didn’t finish the story. However, she never forgot about it and finally got serious about completing it in 2009. And then she finished a few more stories. In 2012, her manuscript, TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD, was named a finalist in RWA’s Golden Heart competition and was published by Entangled Publishing in 2014.

Jamie holds a master’s degree in sport management (yes, that’s a real thing 🙂 ) from the University of Texas at Austin, so it probably comes as no surprise that she loves sports and spends an inordinate amount of time rooting for her hometown Dallas’s pro sports teams and her alma maters.

She also adores Walt Disney World, shopping, and pop culture. Want to know if your favorite TV show is going to be canceled or what the newest Disney attraction is? Ask Jamie. She’ll probably know the answer.
