Very good book. Jericho has returned to Cupid to apply for his dream job at a local university. He ran into some trouble during his last job and he needs this one to help repair his reputation. He's happy to see his best friend Zoe, but something has changed in the way he looks at her. Zoe has always been a free spirit, bouncing from thing to thing and man to man, and Jericho has been the one constant in her life. Her feelings for him have been changing, but she's not sure she wants to risk thei ...more

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 frien

I was sent this book by the author for my honest review. I had a hard time getting into this book. I usually love all of Lori Wilde's books but for me this book wouldn't hold my interest. It is a friends to lover story and I did love the ending. Maybe it is because I find archeology boring and I had problems getting thru the book this time.

3.5 very fun stars!
This is a fun and lighthearted friends to lovers story. There was a mystery aspect to it with a heavy dose of archaeology thrown in! I enjoyed the build up between Jericho and Zoey, they have been lifelong friends and Zoey loved Jericho for awhile. Jericho has finally realized he wants Zoey as more than a friend. Reading about them trying to dance around their feelings for each other was entertaining.

This is another heartwarming story from Lori Wilde. She brings you back to Cupid Texas and this time we get to learn so much more about Zoey McCleary. In the past books you see how her family really feels like she needs to grow up but I don't really thing they knew the real Zoey. They took her at face value and never looked deeper. Jericho Chance is the right guys for her. He sees the real Zoey. They are the perfect example of opposites attract. This is the perfect books to curl up with on these ...more

Somebody to Love by Lori Wilde is a December 2013 Avon publishing release. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Edelweiss and Lori's Review Crew in exchange for an honest review.

Cupid is town steeped in romantic legends. Zoey and Jericho have grown up together. Jericho is a few years old than Zoey, making it easy to maintain a platonic friendship all these years. However, the two had a moment when the scales might have tipped in the other direction. They righted themselves and

**You can read Somebody to Love as a stand alone book an enjoy the story without feeling like you are missing anything. Lori Wilde does a great job making the reader feel right at home in Cupid. You don't NEED to read the other books in the series, but it would probably be a great visit back to Cupid, Texas when you have time.**

Zoey has never been committed to anything. She always gave up or quit things that never held her interest. She was what people would call a “free bird”. Jericho is her best friend, and someone she has always had constant in her life. He was the one person who was always there for her when she needed hm. When he came back to town it was for good. Zoey was told that she needed to get her life in order. So she decided to continue her education, that also meant being with Jericho as her teacher.

Jericho is back in town trying to get his dream job at the college, what he wasn't expecting was the feelings he's has supressed for his best friend for years to boil over and make themselves knows like never before.

Zoey is considered flakey, just because she can't decide on a career, or a boyfriend. Growing up in Cupid she belived her love would be instant and at first sight not come creaping for her best friend. But now is their time to maybe see where things are going. Right? With h

My Review:
5.0 Star Review - Somebody To Love

I recommend this book.

I enjoyed this book by Lori. This book sweet romance, laughs, heartache, and mystery.

Jericho is back in town after being away for three years. He has missed his best friend Zoe while he was gone. They kept in touch but it's just not the same as seeing her in person.

Zoe has feelings for Jericho ever since she can remember but knows that he just wants to be friends after one night when she kissed him and he didn't kiss her back.

I love Lori's Cupid, Texas books!

This is the story of Jericho and Zoey, best friends since childhood, discovering they have feelings for each other.

In the beginning, both Jericho and Zoey keep their romantic feelings for each other a secret fearing they might ruin their friendship. Once they let each other know that they want to be more than friends, Jericho starts a teaching position at the local university. Zoey has to take his class in order to continue with her archeology studies. They dec

I have never read Lori Wilde before and this is the third installment of the series. I enjoyed this heartwarming story and I always love the friends who turn into more story lines. However, I did feel like I was missing something by not reading the first two in the series. Even though I felt a bit lost in the beginning I can’t wait to read more of this series.

Zoey McCleary and Jericho Chance have been friends since childhood. Even though he was four years older than her they have been best frien

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

This book was done in my favorite trope - friends to lovers. Flighty Zoey, the sister of Natalie from All Out of Love, and her "best friend" Jericho, reunite after a few years. They have been friends since childhood, and obviously the attraction has been there, but they have been afraid to act on it. Now, they are in temporary position of professor & student, and Jericho's job is on the line if they get involved. Jericho is supervising an archeological dig with Zoey other students.

We are back in Cupid, Texas in this adventure packed story! Zoey and lifelong best friend Jericho are working together on an archaeological dig. This is a fun story packed full of adventure and mystery and of course romance. Great characters and a fast paced story make this one a must read.

She's young and flighty
They've been best friends forever
Now want each other

Archaeological stuff

At first I thought, “archeology? No way will I get into this book!” Let’s just say I was wrong. I am still new to Wilde’s writing, but as this is book #3 in the Cupid, Texas series, so far it is my favorite! I really enjoyed the touch of suspense thrown in.

I think the book had an interesting plot theme, but I found it a bit more explicit than I care to listen to in an audio book.

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 b

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
