New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde invites you back to Cupid, Texas, where love is only a heartbeat away . . .

Sexy cowboy-scholar Jericho Chance always knows exactly what he wants and how to get it. And after sauntering back home to Cupid, he’s shocked to discover that he wants Zoe McCleary. After years from home, he takes one new look at his bubbly best friend, with her lightning smarts and luscious body, and it hits him like a bolt: she’s his somebody to love and he’s not leaving town again without her.

Settling down always seemed like a time waster to Zoe, a man magnet with a trail of broken hearts behind her. She’s not meant to settle down—but how can she resist someone as persuasive as Jericho? There’s no way they can ignore the explosive chemistry seething between them . . . even if it means risking their friendship . . .

    This is my favorite Cupid novel. I think Jericho is the sexiest

    This is my favorite Cupid novel. I think Jericho is the sexiest and most charming of all the Cupid hunks. And I liked Zoe the best of the girls. I also thought this was the best plot. There are villains, action, suspence, humor and lots of love and romance. I highly recommend this for a relaxing night - or day!

    Adorable!

    Adorable and sweet, Somebody to Love will keep you smiling long after the last page. I totally enjoyed the surprising aspects of this book – from the archeology to the little mystery, everything about the story kept me turning pages long past my bedtime.

    Zoe is charming, a bit awkward, but overall a lovely and quirky character that I enjoyed reading about. She has to deal with the fear of admitting to her best friend that her feelings have deepened. The fact that he’s her teacher and leader on an archeological dig she is on for school make that just a bit more complicated as they try to fight the feelings between them.

    Jericho – holy cow, folks – cowboy, professor, all warm and snuggly and charming and adorable. I wanted to wrap him up in a blankie and keep him all to myself. He’s trying to redeem himself professionally and dealing with the passion he feels for his best friend. This leads to so much sexual tension between the two, it’s like a three-alarm blaze every time you turn the page!

    Overall I give this one four stars. I do so love a good friends-to-lovers story, and Somebody to Love delivers in spades. Lori wrote two characters with a ton of chemistry and a backstory that was unique and educational. I totally loved it!

    Enjoyed it from beginning to end

    Jericho and Zoe have been friends since they were children. Both of them are afraid to take it to the next level. No one believes in Zoe's ability to commit except for Jericho. It's a fun story, good from start to finish.

    Another good book from Lori Wilde!

    Lori Wilde knows how to write a story that will keep you engaged to the very end. The romance in this book was great! It was a little disappointing that the lead character was not really a cowboy but an archeologist instead.

    Somebody to Love is another great read by Lori Wilde. Zoey and J

    Somebody to Love is another great read by Lori Wilde. Zoey and Jericho have been best friends for years. One kiss from Zoey changes everything and starts an adventure (well it is three years in the making). They discover how to take their relationship to the next level while unearthing secrets. The witty banter between Zoey and Jericho blends well with their attraction and chemistry. 
    A perfect addition to the Cupid Texas series. I loved the glimpses of couples from the first two books. 
    I recommend this book to any reader looking for a hot friends to lovers story with a dash of mystery.

    I received Somebody To Love as a free copy from the authors review crew in exchange for an honest review.




    This is a story about best friends becoming lovers.  Zoey is a flighty and impulsive girl who can't seem to settle down and grow up.  Jericho is the Yang to Zoeys Yin. Best friends from early childhood they seem to balance each other out.  Jericho, who has had the hots for Zoey since their teens, arrives back in Cupid to try and overcome a "situation" that happened at his last job.  Zoey is trying out archaeology as a lark only to discover it may be her calling.  




    Add some sparks flying between Zoey and Jericho, some dirt, a tribal legend, a dash of mystery, and a secret someone wants to keep hidden.  What do you get?  A fabulous read.




    Even though this book is part of the Cupid, TX series it can stand alone.  I highly recommend this book.

    These reviews are the first things I read before I buy a book.  It's fun to see what others thought of it.  Well here's my opinion.  Buy it!  It does start a little slow but you have to "build" a friendship with the characters and start to care about what happens to them.  Zoey and Jericho will make you do a "Happy Dance" when they finally get together.

    Jericho and Zoe have been best friends since they were children,

    Jericho and Zoe have been best friends since they were children, but when Jericho comes back to town for a job, things start to escalate more than friendship. The last thing that Jericho wishes to do is ruin their friendship, but for quite some time he has been in love with Zoe. Zoe has decided that after having multiple career changes, she has finally decided on being a Archaeologist. However the guardian in charge of her trust fund has told her she can't just quit, she has to see it through. If she does quit, he will cut her off from her funds, believing her to be flighty, and unable to stick with anything. However Zoe is desperate to prove her family wrong, to show them that when she really wants something she can stick with it. When circumstances start to heat up between Zoe and Jericho, a complication comes up. Jericho's new job is the new professor for the job dig, and Zoe is his student. So if they are caught together, Jericho will be fired, and he can't afford it on his record. As they work on the site together, it becomes that much harder to stay apart, and Jericho doesn't know if he will be strong enough to stop from kissing her or making love to her.

    Somebody To Love is the third installment in the Cupid Texas Series that is fairly new by Lori Wilde. I recently discovered this author, when I received a review copy of her first two books. The first two books in the series I fell in love with instantly. Somebody To Love however was a bit different, I had a bit of a harder time reading it. It didn't take very long, however I couldn't get fully into the story as I like to when I am reading a romance. I felt a little detached, and I am not sure if its just become I have a harder time liking contemporaries or if it was the actual story. It started out pretty good, I didn't have a difficult time starting up the story, but as it got toward the midway of the story, I felt like it started to drag a bit. But then as I trudged through the story, it picked up again.

    There was a few aspects that I enjoyed about Somebody To Love. The first is the sweet love story that is prevalent through the story. I found that it starts off with Zoe and Jericho have no problem to connect, since they grew up together. In the beginning I felt these two were a bit frustrating, not wanting to admit to each other how much they love each other, and want more than friendship. A blind man could see what they are afraid of admitting to each other. Then when they do, their relationship gets put on hold because of Jericho's new job which he can't afford to lose. As the story progressed further, I enjoyed seeing the little twists and turns, and it definitely surprised me. There was a bit of a mystery/suspense aspect in the plot that made it more than just a simple love story. I always enjoy a love story when there is more to it than just that. I love a exciting conflict that gets you at the edge at times. I found the conflict in this story wasn't over done, although you don't really realize the conflict until toward the end and I will warn you it might shock you, but in a delightful way. The characters were fun and engaging, however Zoe I had a small issue with. I loved Jericho, very sensual but protective and I love the way he was toward Zoe, willing to sacrifice everything for her. However I felt Zoe was a bit blah, she didn't really dazzle me in any way, in fact I was a bit disappointed in this heroine. She was very independent, but I thought she was flaky at times, especially in the first half of the story. In the second half I started to enjoy her a bit more, but I didn't fall in love with her.

    Overall I found Somebody To Love a lovely addition to the Cupid series by Lori Wilde. I felt like there could have been a bit more in the beginning of the story to really draw in the reader, but other than that I enjoyed Jericho and Zoe's story. There was quite a bit of sensuality, sweet moments, and charming plot to engage you in the story. Not entirely remarkable, but a enjoyable read on a lazy afternoon.

    I did not read the earlier books in the Cupid Texas series, haven't read anything by Lori Wilde actually. This was also my first audiobook in the romance genre. I think the combination of all of these things did not work for me. The story started ok. I liked the idea of Jericho and Zoe. I liked that they were best friends, liked the archeology angle, liked the mystery/suspense baked into the plot of the story. But then the story got whiny. I got so tired of listening to the characters whine about how they can't be together, how Zoe is trying to overcome everyone's opinions of her flightiness. Whine whine whine. By the time the 2 finally got together, I was so over them that I didn't really care that they were getting together at all. There were entire paragraphs that repeated the same laments word for word that had been spelled out in an earlier paragraph. Honestly, the story dragged on so much that it was painful to listen too. I give the story 2 stars because I think the idea of the storyline held promise, it just didn't deliver. The audio narration was also painful to listen to. The narrator pronounced several words incorrectly. And her voice sounded older - not really into listening a romance novel narrated by someone that sounds old enough to be my mother. It kind of ruins the mood. Overall a fail. I definitely won't pick up any of the other books in this series. Not sure that I want to read anything at all by this author actually, if this book is any indicator of her writing style. This was definitely more of an old school romance novel, rather than contemporary romance novels that are more current

    Another fine installment in the Cupid, Texas series! This book

    Another fine installment in the Cupid, Texas series!
    This book is dedicated to Zoey and Jericho, whom have been best friends for years… but now romance is blossoming between the two. I have been hoping that we would get to read Zoey’s story and that she would mature into the great young lady that she has become in this installment.
    This book has some action, mystery and suspense but not so much so that it becomes more of a romantic suspense novel. Personally, I’m not a fan of the romantic suspense genre but this book had just enough mystery to keep things interesting and pull you into the intrigue, all while keeping the overall tone of the book a bit more light and happy than the darker suspense novels.
    The romance between Zoey and Jericho will have you rooting for their happy ending and their journey will not disappoint. We also get to visit with some other Cupid, Texas characters that we have met in other books in the series.
    I can’t wait for the next installment of the Cupid, Texas series!

    I have had the pleasure of reading every book in the Cupid, Texa

    I have had the pleasure of reading every book in the Cupid, Texas series so far. Lori Wilde has written yet another fabulous book that kept me completely captivated from the first page to the last. I am a fan of Ms. Wilde's work and it is always a pleasure to learn she has a new book out. When I opened Somebody to Love I expected to read a great story and I certainly was not disappointed!




    In this book I got the chance to read Zoey's story. After meeting Zoey in the past books it was a lot of fun to get to know her better. Zoey is a smart girl that likes to keep her brain entertained. She also has a super soft heart that a lot of people don't know about, even her family. Zoey has had a lot of relationships in the past but none of them stick. She always backs out before things get to serious. She just hasn't been able to find her "ONE". 




    Jericho Chance had been through a lot of emotional turmoil in his life. He was raised by his grandparents that lived next door to Zoey's family. Jericho and Zoey have been Best Friends since they were just children. Of all the relationships in their lives this one sticks. No matter what they are their for each other. When Jericho comes back to town to apply for a job things start to change. They both can no longer deny their feelings are deeper than either has ever admitted. 




    Jericho and Zoey end up working on a dig together. Oh my goodness there is a LOT that happens on that dig. There is the mystery of missing items, someone gets hurt, and well passions sparks. There is more drama but I don't want to tell you too many details. 




    Jericho and Zoey have a lot of new feelings to work though and a few obstacles to jump through before they can be together. They must work for their happily ever after. 




    I really enjoyed this story. It had just the right amount of romance, a nice mystery mixed in, and some serious drama as well. There are some emotional moments that had me reaching for the Kleenex box. You may want to grab one just in case. I'm a serious fan of small town romance series so this one ranks right at the top of my list of favorite book so far this year. 




    If you are looking for a great small town romance, with a great plot, intriguing characters, with a little mystery added in then I think you should give this one a chance. This is part of a series but I don't think you would have any trouble reading this as a stand alone. However the whole series is AWESOME so if you want to start at the beginning I'm including the buy links below for all of them. 




    I was give the wonderful opportunity to read this book to share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you on Somebody to Love.

    I truly love this series and Lori does not disappoint whatsoever

    I truly love this series and Lori does not disappoint whatsoever in telling a new chapter in the Cupid, Texas series.
     Jericho Chance and Zoey McCleary have been best friends forever, so when he comes back to town to take a job as a professor
    in charge of an archaeology dig and Zoey is his student, it leads to some interesting chemistry.
    Add in a family story from long ago involving two star-crossed lovers and it is one fast-paced ride.

    Lori gives the reader a fabulous read and at the same time, learning new facts about subjects like archaeology.
     Even if you are new to the series or the author herself, this is an entertaining and edge of your seat read.
     This series just keeps getting better and better.

    In Somebody to Love, Lori Wilde takes us back to Cupid, Texas...

    In Somebody to Love, Lori Wilde takes us back to Cupid, Texas...the land of legends and love.
     
    Zoey and Jericho have been friends almost forever.  But somewhere along the way, Zoey's feeling took a very unfriendship like turn and she started to feel a lot more for Jericho.  When she tested the waters with a midnight kiss and he showed no interest, they brushed Zoey's transgression off and remained true to their friendship, even after Jericho left Cupid to go to university else where.
     
    Now Jericho is back in Cupid and he's starting to notice Zoey as a grown, sexy woman...not just his best bud.  But with a new job at the University in Cupid, and Zoey as one of the students on the archeology dig he's supervising, there is no way either of them can act on the mutually growing attraction.  Determined to get through the dig and Jericho's probationary period with the university, they vow to keep their hands off each other until the dig is over.  Zoey and Jericho try to fight the pull they feel for each other, but it's a lost cause...there chemistry is just too good together!
     
    Jericho knows Zoey very well, and he worries that once she 'catches' him, she'll tire of him quickly...but Zoey hasn't settled because even unconsciously, no one has ever measured up to Jericho.   When the dig brings out secrets, old history, and present day threats, Jericho is fast to realize he can't be without Zoey.   But will it be too late for them?
     
    I don't read a lot of books with younger characters in them, but I did really enjoy this one.  I just really liked Zoey!  Although most of the community of Cupid saw Zoey as flighty and irresponsible, I felt like she was really a lot deeper than they were giving her credit for.  I loved that Jericho could see this too, he saw the real Zoey and understood her like no one else.  Zoey was fun to get to know better in Somebody to Love.  Her impulsiveness could sometimes get her into trouble though, and it was great to see her realize this and acknowledge it was an area for growth.  Both Zoey and Jericho were strong characters with a zest for what they were doing that was catching!
     
    Lori hooked me on the friends to lovers theme with this one!  The anticipation, the dance Zoey and Jericho did was at times funny and at times heart warming!  They already know each other so well, get along so well, I couldn't see how they couldn't give a relationship a chance. 
     
    I loved being back in Cupid, and seeing some of the characters from previous books in Somebody to Love!  The small town feel that Lori manages to convey will easily enable you to picture Cupid, the residents and the legend.  Lori effortlessly mixes mystery, legend, suspense and romance in a realistic way that will make you want to keep reading!
     
    I can't wait to catch a glimpse of Zoey and Jericho in the next Cupid book and see what they're up to!
     
    I do think Somebody to Love can be read alone even though it is part of a series.  Lori gives enough background that you will easily be able to follow along...although I recommend reading the other books in this series anyway!
     
    I'd recommend Somebody to Love to romance readers looking for a hot friends to lovers story with mystery thrown in to keep things stirred up!

    So – I keep doing this, coming in to a series after it has started only to discover MORE things that I need to read.  GAH.  




    Lori Wilde has made me a fan of Texas based stories, incorporating that curious mix of western and southern sensibilities and seamlessly blending them with a cleverly plotted friends to lovers romance. 




    Zoe and Jericho were best friends as kids, and while Zoe has managed to avoid complications and relationships on her way to growing older, she still has fond memories of Jericho.  For his part, Jericho has worked hard in his time away from Cupid and achieved success, even though he always felt something was missing. 




    I was able to fall right into the story, with a feel of the small town, everyone knows your name and history, I could see Zoe’s frustration with the perceived ‘meddling’ by others in her life.  While not known for her patience or tendency to stick with things, this dig and her education may just be the one thing she doesn’t lose interest in. 




    Jericho is amazed that the young girl he left is now this desirable and attractive woman.  Unfortunately his position as her teacher places him in an untenable position: but he refuses to take no for an answer. 




    With a mystery weaving through the moments of laughter and interactions between the characters, there is plenty to keep readers engaged and interested.  And the heartwarming moments are never ending as these two work toward a happily ever after. 




    I received an eBook copy from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
