Book Description

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 . . .

1.0 out of 5 stars Strangely bad June 29, 2014
By Claire
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars No one knows Cowboys like Lori Wilde!! December 31, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Somebody found love January 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Annoying hero & heroine = unlikeable book March 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful return to Cupid, Texas January 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Once again Lori Wilde has captured my heart with her story and characters. Zoey and Jericho prove that best friends can and do fall in love. The supporting cast makes the story come alive while the growing attraction of Zoey and Jericho leaves the reader feeling the sexual frustration they are feeling. When they finally get together the sparks fly. The mystery aspect of the story kept me guessing and I guessed wrong. The Davis Mountains happen to be one of my favorite places on earth and I have enjoyed this series immensely. While this story is part of a series it can definitely be read as a standalone. I was honored to be on Lori's "Review Crew".

5.0 out of 5 stars Somebody to Love January 6, 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Somebody to Love is a well-written page-turner with an intriguing plot and likeable characters.
Lori Wilde expertly weaves mystery and romance together to create a story that draws you in and keeps you enthrawled until the very last page.
There are a few "adult only" scenes, as is to be expected in contemporary romance.
