Unfortunately, the synopsis was the best thing about this book. I knew things were going to go badly when the heroine (at the very beginning) dumps her backstory while talking to a cat she is trying to persuade a cat to come out from under her car. That was so awkward I had to make a conscious effort NOT to put down the book right then. Then there was the equally awkward conversation between H/h where we already hear the word “love” as part of her inner dialogue. It just went on from there and sadly the direction was downhill.
Throughout this book the rule seemed to be "tell don’t show". How many times did we have to be told the heroine was irresponsible? It made me dislike her from the beginning and not even care about how she was going to be redeemed. The hero, who should have been awesome based on the synopsis, was uninspiring. (Btw, calling her “Zoe-eyes” was jarring, but maybe that was just me; I also wondered about a guy using the word “fanny” in the 21st century… again that could just be me.)
The “suspense” part of this book was too silly to follow closely and I just skipped over it. I was disappointed cause I like the author, like reading about that part of Texas, and I’d been looking forward to this story. I’m not sure what happened with this book but it really shouldn’t have been published, Lori Wilde has proven that she can write better! I recommend skipping it, even if you’re reading the series.

Is it only me...or does the Cupide Texas Series just keep getting better and better!?

Firstly, can we just say...Hellloooooo Jericho!! As a huge fan of "Friends to Lovers" romances, and a HUGE fan of Lori Wilde romances (after the Jubilee Texas Series, which I am currently re-reading my love Joe Daniels in THE COWBOY TAKES A BRIDE), I absolutely enjoyed every moment of SOMEBODY TO LOVE, book three in the Cupid, Texas Series.

The suspense aspect was a fun addition to the story and certainly keeps you hanging on, page after page, and your heart will take a few hits with this one, but in the end, I can say that Lori will leave you with the warm and fuzzies...Satisfaction Guaranteed.

Grab some cocoa, and a warm blanket and settle in for a heartwarming read which will keep you up into the night.

No one knows Cowboys like Lori Wilde!!

This is my first book by Lori Wilde, and I definitely want to get to know the other cowboys from Cupid as well. As a fan of the friends-to-lovers trope, I enjoyed every step of Zoe and Jericho's path to a happily-ever-after -- from Zoe's frightful realization of having fallen in love with her best friend, to Jericho's determination to keep Zoe in her rightful place by his side, every scene was fun and interesting to read.

The plot is as it is in the blurb, but the magic is in reuniting two friends who've known each other since childhood and forcing them both to confront feelings they never before had. For Zoe, that was to admit her feelings for Jericho, for she did not want to ruin her friendship if she confessed. For Jericho, that was to come to the realization that his vagabond life (more spiritually so) held little meaning without someone to go back to, someone special in his life. To say it was humorous when both tried valiantly to deny their feelings for each other is an understatement, but even through the humor one can see the obvious frustration and indecision regarding this matter - Should they ignore their body language and natural affinity and remain just friends? Or might this be a good time to take their relationship to the next level?

Character-wise, I liked both Zoe and Jericho. Jericho I liked more since he has the rugged exterior of a cowboy with the intellect of a professor. That combination is frankly, quite attractive, and I enjoyed more to see him in his relaxed state around Zoe. Zoe was interesting -- a little quirky and at times awkward, but she has a warm heart and charming demeanor so it's quite impossible to not like her.

The hero & heroine display some unlikeable and annoying character traits, including: not keeping promises, impulsiveness, irresponsibility, and habitual self-destructive behavior. I kept reading to see if Lori Wilde would make me like them and cheer them on in the end.

She didn't.

This one was a mixed bag for me.

Things I liked:

- Friends to lovers--one of my favorite troupes
- Archaeology angle--neat addition to the story; I especially loved the terms and definitions at the beginning of each chapter. My inner social studies geek really appreciated them :)
- Ending cuteness

Things that didn't quite work:

- The hero's nickname for Zoey--"Zoe-Eyes" just sounded wrong in my head
- It felt like we were being hit over the head with the "Zoey is flighty and irresponsible" refrain from all angles--it got old quick. First, she didn't seem to be all that bad; it was definitely a case of more telling than showing. Second, she absolutely could have been a cat owner from the beginning--they're pretty self sufficient
- The mystery/suspense angle came off as a bit on the silly side; I had a hard time taking that part of it seriously
- Ditto the parallels to the historical couple
- The main relationship conflict felt forced
- The term "ear-scorching kiss" yanked me right out of the love scene. I'll admit it's been a while, but ear-scorching? How does that even work?

In all, Somebody to Love is a decent read. It didn't quite work for me, but I did enjoy the return to the town of Cupid (though we don't see a whole lot of it or its inhabitants in this one) and the nerdy history bits. Many fans of the series seem to have loved it though, so if you're one of them, give it a shot!

C rating.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
